We got into a fight few weeks back now and i wish she can see how sorry i am now.
I love her so much and i know she still loves me and i know she still cares, otherwise she wont be replying my text and knowing how i’m doing. But right now it seems like she is still confuse of her decision to breakup with me or give me a second chance.
I need help not until i saw post of how Dr. Wicca has help a lot of people having issues like mine, though i have been hearing a lot about this spell caster and I hope that it he would be able to do something about bringing Lily back home cause i’m nobody without her.

I ask if he can help me bring back my Lily too? I can tell you that his spell was outstanding and i’m so happy that he really help me put our past behind us and we are strong together now and thanks to Dr. Wicca because he is a true spell caster and i will recommend him to anyone having same problem too.
He is powerful. Contact him on dr.wiccahightemple @ gmail . com or www . wiccanlovespells . net

this comment is the correct one. I am not sure how Felix could write such a misguided article. Everything he likes about Netflix is still there, the streaming service just doesn’t offer it. Why would it?

It is still a tremendous value. For nearly a decade Netflix has been my family’s sole visual entertainment expense.

It replaces going to the movies, renting movies, cable TV, buying DVDs, buying TV shows. We don’t do any of that anymore.

“Where,” I asked the customer service rep, “is the list of movies, ordered by year, or genre or rating?”

Can’t do that with streaming, he says. The site looks like frigging pinterest now because the site has “evolved.”

Or have they dropped it for that too?

I’m one of the founders of a UK startup, Tank Top TV, where we aim to help people find movies & TV shows they want to watch. There are literally dozens of on-demand services in this country, each of which has a unique catalogue. Some are free to watch and some are pay-as-you-go or subscription, so it’s pretty common for people to use multiple services regularly.

So we built a site to make it easy to see what’s available on all the different services you use. Sadly, Netflix asked us not to include them, even though our users say that our site makes it much easier to find something to watch from Netflix’s content!

Netflix is a great service in many ways, but a LOT of users don’t find it easy to discover good content to watch on it. They shut down access to their API for new users ages ago (and in fact never opened it for catalogues outside the US). It’s a real shame they don’t allow 3rd parties to do more to help people find their content.
