    As long as they keep adding more movies/TV shows to streaming, I’m happpy. But, right now they only have the first season up even though they already finished airing their second season.

    The second season will probably come in the fall prior to season three. I assume because that’s what happened last year with other shows.

    Usually when a TV DVD series is released Netflix starts airing about a month after, probably so more people buy the sets instead of watching free on Netflix. I wish TV series DVDs would come out in July And then on Netflix in August. By the time I try to catch up with the prior season Live episodes are to far ahead and no longer avail on the network site either.

    I tried watching New Girl but Just not feeling it. I watched the pilot and a lot of the characters are annoying. I began episode two and stopped. I decided to go back to the Pre-Cw days of the wonderful WB and rewatch ANGEL. Raising Hope is a funny comedy, I Can’t wait for Season three to be released!!! Does New Girl get better along its course I see it had multiple nominations for Emmys and gg. I might watch til ep 4 if it Doesn’t get better atleast I gave it a shot.

    New Girl doesn’t pick up until the second half of the season. If you really want to give it a shot, try skipping ahead and checking out some episodes closer to the finale than the premiere
