DVD: Do you remember what prompted you to join DVD Netflix?
Colleen: I was going to have back surgery, and I thought, “I’m not going to be able to recover from back surgery without some form of television or entertainment. And that is the very first time I heard of Netflix. I enrolled in Netflix in 2006, one week prior to having three of my vertebrae fused. I knew it was going to be a long recovery. Netflix was my savior. Pretty much the only thing I could do for two months was watch movies. I signed up for three discs so I could get three DVD at once. The first day I was back home [from my surgery] I watched all three of those discs. It was really nice having the convenience!
DVD: How long were you in recovery from your surgery?
Colleen: It was two months before I was back up on my feet and moving. Without DVD Netflix, it would have been a very different experience; it really helped me get through a difficult time in my life, and helped me manage me that recovery a little bit easier.
DVD: Wow, two months! You must have gotten through a ton of movies during your recovery!
Colleen: Oh, absolutely true. Because of DVD Netflix I was able to watch new releases and catch up on classic films that I had never seen. I watched Deliverance, Scarface, and The Godfather series (The Godfather, The Godfather: Part II, The Godfather Part III) all for the first time. It was so easy to use! Having Netflix at this time in my life was the best resource I could ask for during that time in my life.
