Happy Birthday, Netflix!

While cruising around trying to figure out what might be new to streaming this weekend, I stumbled onto the fact that Netflix was founded on August 29th, 1997. This means that Netflix is a Virgo which explains its analytical tendencies if you’re into that sort of thing.

Lets all have a toast for the date that never deserts you, the friend that never demands you put on some goddamn pants for once, and the companion that won’t hassle you for spending 40 straight hours on your couch and calling it a weekend. You’ve been there for us for 17 years, from the happy red envelopes that some very dedicated people still get, to an icon on my TV that I can just click anytime normal television fails me. You have award winning documentaries, brilliant original programming, and more independent and foreign films that most of us will ever watch in our lifetimes, but you do not judge us when all we do is watch Futurama or Criminal Minds over and over again. Thank you, and happy birthday.
