It's not intended that you book one DVD, wait for it, watch it, send it
back, rinse, repeat.
You book up a queue of DVDs you're interested in, and they send them to you
one at a time. I've got some DVDs queued up that I've been wanting to watch
for a long time, including some great old classics.
Then, it's just like some kindly frail aunt is sending me a care package of
audio visual delights each week. Luverly!
