  1. hah! I wonder how many of those titles you got around to watching? I hate having to curb my entertainment because of work or school obligations. Sometimes I’ll have a single movie or episode of a TV show that I’m just dying to see, yet I can’t justify watching it until I get my homework done! From the list, I’d watch a lot of those titles, and definitely the Sopranos — hopefully in linear fashion.

  2. Thanks for all the new films! It would be very helpful if new releases and other popular titles could be recalled/reserved, even if this means creating a queue of 10+ users. Currently, unless one works in the A/V department, it is neigh impossible to check out a popular title (such as the Wire or Sopranos), exacerbated by the week-long rental time. Shortening the viewing time on new titles to something like 2 or 3 days would also be very helpful. Thanks!

    Thanks for the comment, Laura. We are certainly aware of this problem and are working on a way to create a queue for AV materials. Keep watching the blog for any changes on this front! Also … in a few months we’ll be starting a new popular DVD collection in MSEL. We’ll place 10-15 new DVDs each month on the shelves in the sitting area of M-Level (next to the recent fiction/ nonfiction collection). Keep your eyes open for that soon.
