Just a number...what is the ratio? If 100,000 compared to 3,457,653,234, I would say "so what".

True, but there's only about 100 million households in the US, so 3 billion downloads would be quite an achievement. :) Also, this was in the first day, not total.

What I want to know is if the show is any good. It's front and center when you log into Netflix, but the commercials I've seen look really dumb to me. Anyone watched it?

I loved seasons 1-3, but season 4 really isn't doing it for me in the same way. Enjoyable, certainly, but a little disappointing after waiting so long. I'd still highly recommend the whole series though.
