Dear Netflix

Recently while viewing the movie In & Out, your streaming service developed a case of the hiccups at 41 minutes in. Over the course of the last week I have attempted to resume watching this wonderful and hilarious comedy numerous times. Loading ensues in HD quality. Then promptly begins hiccuping once more in a vicious cycle of load/three seconds of movie/hiccup/load over and over again. I might add that I have done all the troubleshooting possible on my end. My Roku is functioning properly as is my wireless internet service. Other programming loads and plays properly so I am left with thinking the problem lies you. While I have seen In & Out before and know how it ends, I feel as if I'm left hanging with no relief in sight. I would appreciate a remedy to this problem soon. Like Debbie Reynold's mother-of-the-groom character says, I need that wedding. I need some beauty and some music and some placecards before I die. It's like heroin. Though I can't say I know what the cure for program loading hiccups might be, I can state with authority and from personal experience that a few drops of bitters on a wedge of lemon works quite well.

You can let Netflix know of your problem via their website.
Or do you know this and are just venting?
My practical, take care of business brain is in full gear this morning : )

Just venting.

Had a similar problem with The French Lieutenant's Woman last winter and they fixed it.

I love how you're so practical! :-)
