I think this sounds interesting, but I really don't like it being a replacement for the Watchlist and Favorites. As some people have noted ahead of me, the watchlist and favorites fulfill different purposes that don't quite align with the purposes of a queue. The way I see it, a 'Favorites' list is a place to list your favorite shows, and a 'Watchlist' keeps track of shows you plan to watch, shows you've already watched, and lets you keep track of how many episodes of a show you have watched. A queue should be something more like a playlist - a list of episodes you're going to watch in the near future.

I've only played around with the queue a little bit, so maybe I'm missing something, but it doesn't fill the role that the Watchlist currently does for me.

I'm sorry but I don't see the need for this for myself. I prefer the watchlist. The queue shows the last show you saw but now I'll have an extra step it seems to find my next show? Why doesn't this have a link for the next episode like Netflix? With watchlist it just seemed easier and also when I transferred the shows from my watchlist to the queue it didn't save where I was on shows I haven't seen in awhile and on the shows I've already finished I'm not going to go back and watch the last episode just to show that it's finished. Then for shows that are no longer on CR they won't transfer correctly right since I can't go back and watch the last episode. I hope that with all our feedback maybe this queue can be tweaked to our liking.

not really sure if this is for me, I just remember what shows I'm watching or need to watch.

that feel when you have only 1 show to add because almost every simulcast is not available in your region.

I don't get it. What's it supposed to do? Dump all the episodes you haven't watched yet into one area? Why do you have to "add to queue" and then add series to queue" (2 steps)?

I don't see how this is of more use than watchlist where can select watching/finished etc and what episode you're at.
And how does this queue thing allow for ranking of favourites?? If you're going to trash those 2 features, this queue thing should have something similar...


Exactly, this new "feature" is just a "Favorite" button and acts as a place to hold shows you plan to watch. In no way is it a proper queue.

I agree with what osunale has said, i don't like "My Queue" being a replacement for the Watchlist and Favorites i also use the watchlist to keep track of what i've watched or intend to watch. It should be kept for this purpose though the chance of us being heard on this matter are slim to none

The Queue sucks! As it is now, it is no proper replacement for the watchlist.
You can't see, how many episodes of a series you've seen so far, you can't add series you might be watching, that are not on CR, ...
This is ridiculous.

Like the idea, but I'd rather that the watchlist was there aswell as this.

good. it's nice to know that if i get sick of watching one show i don't have to get up to put a different series on while i'm kicking back on the couch looking at the computer monitor from a distance, simply obeying the "keep the room well lit and sit far away from the screen" rule of watching anime.

The queue is a great idea. But why are you killing the favorites? I use that to keep track of the series I've watched, not as an episode queue. Also, is this going to bring a queue to the Mobile Apps and the Boxee Box? The site doesn't really need work, at least not as much as the Mobile Apps and the Boxee Apps.

I agree, I really wish they would reconsider killing the favorites. I guess I'll have to keep track of the shows I've seen some other way. Seems dumb since there is a perfectly functioning feature on the site now...

Er, this doesn't seem good. I like having a list of all the series I like, along with that an ep. list with different features would be nice, but don't get rid of what is there already...
