Don't even read this if you only like to watch a movie or TV show once and then move on! Netflix is launching a competition for the world champion in movie-watching endurance.

Their couch potato contest will take place in NYC's Times Square from October 2-7 and will pit eight people against each other - in front of a giant movie screen - to break the world record of 120 hours and 23 minutes (the current world record).

The eight contestants get to sit in a plexi-glass living room while being served gourmet popcorn (sounds like my kind of night! er, week), and can stretch and move as long as they keep watching. What I really want to know is, what are they watching? A John Hughes marathon I could deal with, but not the Look Who's Talking franchise.
