Comparing the two services:
They both have the same deal and free shipping.
I started both on Thursday night and Blockbuster sent my first three discs Friday/Saturday while Netflix is currently saying that they'll be sending the movies Monday (previously it had said Friday).

However, Blockbuster sent the second and third discs of Avengers on Friday and the the first on Saturday. Go figure.

So at the moment Blockbuster's doing better, despite the shipping gufaw. Unfortunately, they don't have all the sets of Avengers. Neither does Netflix. You have to use both services to see the whole series.

UPDATE: It appears that the Blockbuster movies have arrived today (Monday). That's a day earlier than expected.

No wonder you don't have time to come by Atomic Pulp anymore!

We miss you, Lee!
