There are only a few things in life that I love almost as much as my husband and our dog. Among these few things are film and television.
Okay, these two things don’t come close to how I feel about Jim and Joey. I was just trying to set a mood, you caught me. LELZ. Anyway, my point is that I get pretty obsessed with movies and TV. I especially like binge-watching TV series.
Jim and I watch all the good shows together and then when he’s away, I can only watch either reruns of our favorites (FRIENDS, LOST, etc) OR shows he’s totally not interested in (Scandal, Orphan Black, etc). That’s what true love is: patiently waiting until you’re together to see who dies next on your favorite TV show. So you can OMGWHATJUSTHAPPENED at the same time. Another practice of true love: bugging your partner to watch your absolute favorite movies because you want to watch him/her react to all your favorite scenes. Hehehe.
COMMERCIAL// YOU HAVE TO WATCH THIS SKIT BY AMY SCHUMER. IT’S EXACTLY ME & JIM EVERY NIGHT.
NOT TRYING TO USE FALSE ADVERTISING HERE, INSIDE AMY SCHUMER ISN’T AVAILABLE ON IFLIX BUT MOST OF IT’S UPLOADED ON YOUTUBE ANYWAY SO WHATEVER //COMMERCIAL
ANYWAY, I absolutely LOVE the content on iFlix. For starters, it’s got all 10 seasons of FRIENDS. Yaaaas!
They also just launched this new page called PLAYLISTS where you can follow your favorite people’s favorite shows. And by “your favorite people” I mean ME, OF COURSE.
The best thing about iFlix is how I can easily download some episodes of a show and I can watch it on-the-go especially when stuck in traffic or waiting for an appointment. You have 3 options when downloading: high, medium, or low quality. I go with low quality which is just about 66MB, takes just a minute to download while I’m putting my shoes before leaving my place. Even if it says “low quality” it’s really not that bad – it’s like streaming a show minus the buffering.
Another great thing about iFlix is that it features a lot of local TV shows and movies (indie films that are hard to find too!!). They’re only a couple of years old but I am so impressed by the remarkable strides the company has made. They told me that the new playlist page is just one of many features they have planned for the near future. The company founders are very forward-thinking and I’m very excited about the plans they shared with me over dinner a few nights ago.
Since I know from my previous TV CLUB posts that a lot of you guys also love watching shows and movies, I’ve decided to team up with the company to let you experience it for yourself!
