    Might want to double check the date on Parenthood. Pretty sure 1989 is incorrect.

    Thanks for doing these every week. I love it. Very helpful.

      IMDb shows1989, as well. I would have been 17 when it came out. I remember seeing it and thinking it was somewhat funny, but kind of “so what”. I watched it again, about a year ago (now that I have two kids of my own). Much different experience.

    Crackle says To Die For is not available in my region. I am in Arizona. It’s not like I am in Panama or Guatemala.

    I need to know where I can get someone to actually DO something that you say you’re going to do – I am owed a refund and your customer service number means NOTHING. I’m going on the 3rd week of no response other than someone saying my case has been “escalated to the appropriate department”….

    Douglas – my info is this:
    CASE NUMBER: 885873
    CASE NUMBER: 879184
    CASE NUMBER: 852043
    CASE NUMBER: 851524
    CASE NUMBER: 851861

    Also, my complaint w/ the BBB is 16068613 and they updated me that no one in your company has responded. OH, and I’ve written the “Customer Advocate” at customer.advocate@roku.com and that person can’t be bothered to respond to any plea for help.
