Member Spotlight: Nancy Fradette & Bernini

As a family, we spend lots of time chasing things. Bella and Bernini chase after their toys and each other. I chase after Bella and Bernini. And Krish (my husband) chases after tennis balls on the court. When we aren't chasing things, we enjoy curling up on the couch together to watch our favorite movies and shows from DVD Netflix.


DVD:  And what makes the DVD Netflix experience special for you?

Nancy:  DVD Netflix has been a part of my life for a long time now (since 2002)—and I’ve enjoyed being able to bring the DVDs over to friends’ homes and with me on trips.  I also really love just looking forward to going to my mailbox. You know everything else in the mailbox is a bunch of junk or a bunch of bills. It’s one thing that we get in the mail these days that we really appreciate and love—maybe that’s what it is.

DVD Netflix also introduced my dog Bernini to his  favorite film!


DVD: Yes! Bernini is a big fan of one movie in particular. Can you tell us a little about why?

Nancy:  Bernini was named after the great Baroque sculptor and architect, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, who figured prominently in the plot of the film Angels & Demons. We were watching the movie, and whenever they would say ‘Bernini’, he would look at the TV, and be like—“Me!”—and finally, he even barked at the TV.  

I was about to send [the movie] back, and Bernini had stolen the envelope away and was beginning to tear it up. That’s when I realized that Angels & Demons must be his favorite movie of all time!


DVD: Adorable! With so much cuteness at home, it must make it hard to want to leave the house!

Nancy:  Absolutely. I love to spend time with my dogs, and when I have DVDs at home, it make it easy to spend time with them. Family time with my loved ones at home—it doesn’t get better than that!
