Drama is a Netflix desktop client designed just for Windows Vista (and presumably now Windows 7) users. The app, an upgrade from thirteen23’s previous Netflix application cine.view, is an attractive WPF client that lets you browse trailers, view new releases, search Netflix’s library and manage your queue. Oh yeah, you can use it for streaming your movies, too.
You can either browse through the titles or search by name. Once you find one you’re interested in, you just have to click on the title to access the movie’s details, view the trailer, or to add the movie to your queue. You can also rate (star) movies on this detail page too.
Drama lets you rearrange your Netflix queue by dragging and dropping the thumbnails of your movies around. Then, when you’re ready, you can launch your “watch instantly” titles right within the application itself.
