Queues You Can Use

Someone at work left some free Netflix trial cards pinned to the department bulletin board, so I've taken the plunge into the early twenty-first century and signed up. Now, when people tell me about movies, I can start adding them to my queue, instead of saying "I should add that to my Netflix queue, although I guess I'll have to sign up for Netflix first, I should totally do that."

The inaugural items on my queue are:
--A 1995 episode of NOVA about ants hosted by E. O. Wilson
--Good Bye Lenin (which popped into my head first as a movie I wanted to see but inexplicably never did, and which I located by Googling "movie about old east german woman")
--The NFL Films disc of Super Bowl XIV
--The 1970 documentary about the original cast recording of Sondheim's Company
--The Incredibles, About Schmidt, Wedding Crashers, and Fight Club, in approximate order of how much I want to catch up on these
--Season one of M*A*S*H
As you can tell, I'll have made myself culturally current again in no time.

And they have "30 Rock" streaming, so I have new teevee to watch for when I bike home for lunch.

Seriously, now that I have a queue, I want to hear if you have any prompts (stage directions, if you will) regarding things I should queue onto it.
