Ask The Geeky Girls -
~BunnyLover who is Carly from the UK asks:
My question is which medium do you use to watch all of your shows, movies etc?. (TV, Cable, Netflix etc) I was curious when you guys were talking about Star Wars and then suddenly you watch them all. I am jealous of either your large collection of Dvd’s or access to Instant TV. I am also curious as to how you feel it compares to the US as I have heard that Netflix etc has more available.

~If you have a question you'd like us to answer, please post it in the Ask the Geeky Girls thread in our Ravelry Group
