That wouldn't solve my problem - the stuff that gets wait-listed for three months is never the stuff that is instantly viewable. It's only the big Hollywood releases of the Inglourious Basterds
type that get hung up.
I could just admit defeat and watch all the obscure/foreign/sucky movies and TV shows in my queue and not worry about the four or five titles that never get sent to me, but I'm curious what the cause is.
If you return movies quickly, are in a major market, and never have problems receiving new Hollywood blockbuster type movies immediately, then maybe my theory is wrong. Further experimentation is required!
