Netflix Vortex of Doom…and a lil something extra

So, I am always getting sucked into the Netflix Vortex of Doom. I am one of those people who dont just watch an episode of something…or even a single season of something, unless thats all thats available….nnnooo…I am not satisfied until I’ve seen all the things.

I’ve never brought it up before, and its only for the Chrome browser users I think…I use Chrome pretty exclusively. Anyway, I found a LOVELY extension for the Chrome browser like, went the extention first became available. What is does, is it unlocks OTHER countries Netflix regions. What is so exciting about that? Netflix is Netflix. Oh, no, my lovely dearies. Netflix in other countries carries different movies, newer movies and series, and things removed from the good old Netflix you are used to watching.

The extension is called Hola!.

It’s a wonderful thing. I’ve been watching Argentina’s Netflix all day.

The best countries are US, UK, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Argentina, Switzerland, Brazil and Sweden. Now, there are some drawbacks. On some movies, you have to read subtitles, however, look out because they do have option at the bottom of the Netflix screen to switch those to whatever language you speak.

Another drawback is your favorites list doesnt always carry over. And sometimes movie drop. Usually when movies drop, and dont reconnect in a timely manner, I close out of that tab and start a new one, and it usually kicks in the movie from about a minute of where I had gotten dropped.

You have to scroll through the list of countries, as some countries piggyback off other, and dont have their own Netflix.

From what I understand, Hola can be used for other searching type things as well, and unlock Youtube video from regions that tell you that you cant watch that video. I really havent toyed with it much, I just use it for Netflix. It feeds my addiction.

Having gotten all that out there, tomorrow night I will present three more movies that I’ve watched. I try not to give a detail review, I really hate the thought of ruining a movie or show for someone, or accidentally giving too much away. So, I prefer to just give my impression vaguely, whether I enjoyed it or not, and would or wouldnt recommend it.

So, until tomorrow night, sleep tight, if you do that sort of thing…
