I need to clarify right away that this thing does not exist on the Canadian versions of Netflix clients, hence the question.
If it is what I think it is, isn't it kind of oxymoron? What's the point of queueing stuff, if it is all instantly available for watching? Or it serves another purpose besides just being a bookmark list?

It's what you think it is. It's very useful for bookmarking when you can browse on PC (ex with filtering for only HD content) and watch it later on a device.

The advantage of the queue is that when you're on the pc, you go to the NF site and load movies and shows you're interested in seeing. The various apps that are embedded on many set top devices are lowering the flexibility to easily search and find something of interest.

Dazed and confused over high tech.
