    Love these lists. But how about when you hover over a title, instead of the cast, you got the plot summary? That would make your lists ever so much more useful. Everyone wants to know the plot, many don't care that much about the cast. Maybe poll the site users on this and see what they have to say.

  • Vycyous  

    Thank you for maintaining these lists. It's very helpful.

    If at all possible, there really needs to be a "Last Chance to Stream/Watch" section like there is with the Netflix and HBO Go lists.

  • Marginality  

    Best fresh comments and not trolls

  • Jungstir
