Netflix has a panoply of cheap schlocky movies. Sometimes these are good, and sometimes these are terrible. The idea would be to pick out 10 or so of these, put them into a randomizer, then then watch a randomly selected one on a bi-weekly basis. Would anyone else be interested in this?
We've got a couple potentially big shows coming to Netflix soon: Sense8, Orange is the New Black Season 3, & Wet Hot American Summer. I've noticed that some fanfare discussions will post an episode a day (thus creating discussions that favor those who binge), some every few days, and some once a week (thus favoring those who watch slowly). So I'd like to throw the question out there: Is it time to discuss having a more consistent approach, or should we let things continue to develop organically?
