Netflix isn’t just a revolutionary way for movie lovers and shut-ins (and the sizable demographic overlap) to get their entertainment delivered straight to their door. No, a person’s individual Netflix queue, where the gods of the interwebs store the discs you’re about to receive, is one of the most accurate ways to get a read on someone. What you wear or drive doesn’t say nearly as much about you as if you’re eagerly waiting for, say, Mean Girls to arrive in that little red envelope. You know how Rachel told everyone her favorite movie was Dangerous Liaisons when it was really Weekend at Bernie’s? This is like that, only much more so, because your queue is available online for perusal and subsequent judgment from friends, family, and strangers.

Which is why I’ve decided to open up the floor and let all you Pajibians share the top 5 items in your queue. A couple of rules: Feel free to count a season of TV, which can span up six discs, as one entry. It’d also be nice if no one cheated, okay? The whole fun here is to just list the next five movies or TV shows coming your way, whether it’s The Seventh Seal or First Daughter (and really, no one’s gonna believe you about The Seventh Seal, anyway).

Also, obviously, if you use Blockbuster’s Total Access, or some kind of black market disc-shipping program, you’re still welcome to play along. And if you don’t subscribe to any DVD-by-mail program, then consider this a great way to start up your own queue. Now, let’s get to it:

1. The Bourne Supremacy
2. “Carnivale” — Season 1
3. Spartan
4. George Washington
5. The Staircase

So that’s mine. Now it’s your turn. Have at it, folks.

So, What's In Your Queue?
