Great thread, one request-has anybody suggested going back to a text list of the updates? It screws with my browser, but maybe I'm unique in that. Hard to read the titles without hunting on each cover, and I have to horizontal scroll.

Nitpicky for sure, but I wonder if others preferred the text list over cover art too.

Thanks for the thread though, very helpful!

Yeah I dislike the horinzontal scrolling quite a bit. I appreciate the extra effort by the OP, but I like the text list better.

August updates up. Thought there'd be more.. oh well.

Regarding the cover art.. I did that as it's more eye catching and less work for you guys. Also, maybe it's just me, but actually seeing the cover art gets me more interested in the film. I will do an alternate text-only list.

Done. Is that okay?

Horizontal scrolling? What do you mean? Can you take a screenshot? Mine just shows up in rows of six, does it not do that for everyone else?

The best of both worlds - thanks!

The images are all next to each other on one line in IE 9. Maybe different in other browsers.

Weird. That's how the code is presented, but it should autowrap. Let me mess around with it and you can tell me how it looks.

This is how it shows up on my screen.

I edited August's images, take a look and see if that changed anything.

Okay, I see the problem. IE is processing the code literally as it is instead of autowrapping. Glad you and berzirk brought it to my attention, I'll fix June and July right now. Thanks guys.

It's updated. Let me know if it's presented any better now.

I might check out "Hell on Wheels". I believe that the new season starts soon.

Hell on Wheels is a fantastic show. AMC really knows how to make great television. I was debating whether or not to keep watching it about 3 or 4 episodes in, but I'm glad I stuck with it.

I'm not sure if I'd recommend "Wilfred". I watched the first season, and as it wore on, was almost tempted to stop watching it.

I don't think I enjoyed it enough to watch the new season. I think I'm starting to get tv show ADD as I get older.

I'm not even sure I finished watching the first season. I liked the first few episodes, but after a while, it just felt like they were using the same jokes over and over. The whole man-as-dog gag got a little stale for me.

ESPN's 30 For 30 series of documentaries was just stealth added today, only a tweet by the @netflix account to announce it. Just got done watching Bartman episode (which is also 1/3 about Bill Buckner.)

Sweet I will have to finally watch the ones that I haven't seen yet. I have been meaning to buy them to see them so this will work.

Just wanted to say thanks for putting this together and keeping it up to date. I like it more than any other netflix update I have seen anywhere else.

Just thought I'd give a heads up that the complete series of Everybody Loves Raymond will be added 9/1.

Only one movie worth mentioning added today (which totally messes up the August formatting until more are added, but whatever)

Saw they added the Hunter. A fine show, but what movie with Willem Dafoe isn't?

I got a recommendation for one of the more fascinating documentaries I've seen recently called Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of Toynbee Tiles

http://movies.netfli...8?trkid=2361637

It's about these tiles found on roads for the past 30 years in northeast US and South America that has a message based on theories presented by Arnold Toynbee and 2001: A Space Odyssey that dead humans can be resurrected scientifically on Jupiter. Just as fascinating as the messages themselves is the search for the person creating and laying these tiles.

I was able to watch a few more of ESPN's "30 for 30" series. Very enjoyable! I know not everybody is a huge sports fan but it's still possible to enjoy them without having a huge interest in sports.
