have you guys sat down recently to try out Crackle? I did last night after my friend told me to try it. I originally tried it the day it came out but the selection was somehow worse than now.
and while it won't replace Netflix, it's a great companion! Lots of stuff that Netflix doesn't have and it's free! sure, it has ads but the ads aren't nearly as bad as cable TV.
I browsed and it had a ton of anime that I grew up with! The real anime version rather than the US localization. For example, it has Macross! Not Robotech, but the Japanese version (with English dubbing). While I loved Robotech because that's what I grew up with, when I saw the original Macross version, I liked that version in different ways as well.
I also saw Ah! My Goddess, Magic Knights Rayearth, etc.
And the movie and TV selection is not bad at all. Again, it won't replace Netflix but people should give it a try!
