    i say play the trend, ride the wave on nflx and make some money with the stock. when people hope and pray for a stock to go their way, it never really works out as good as they intended .if and when it goes down, short the hell out of it.

    NFLX said it's 23 million customers streamed 2 billion hours. Tell me some of that wasn't Nickelodian.
