My initial goal was to quickly get some adequately entertaining video to keep me amused on airplanes and such without spending a ton of money on a per-hour basis. I downloaded a season of Star Trek: Deep Space 9 (well under a buck an hour, whee!) and two movies (The Eagle Has Landed, and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead). I chose the movies because I've seen them and they are okay, plus they were inexpensive! A cheapskate, aren't I?
