American Netflix DNS Codes Roundup Pt.2

Our other thread was pretty hard to read through the hundreds of comments to find the latest working DNS codes. Here's a new roundup of what's working. You can comment anonymously, so let everyone know what's working and not working for you.

If you don't like constantly finding DNS servers that go out because they're free and thousands of people are connecting through them, we now support Unblock-Us which always works to connect to American Netflix for $4.99/month. We'd appreciate if you use our affiliate link to show them we sent you: [link]

Fringe - In Order

Updated 9/22/2014: Seasons 2-5 are In Order.

It's been a while since we had a new out-of-order report from Netflix, but it was only a matter of time before a new report surfaced. When watching Season 1 of Fringe, don't watch the last episode, it contains strange spoilers from Season 2, even though it doesn't fit into Season 2 very well. It is important not to watch it where it is listed though, as there are spoilers.

Season 2-5: In Order
Season 1: 1-20, Don't watch 21

Episode 21: watch it some time when you're bored, it's not very good and doesn't fit anywhere in the continuity. From Wikipedia:
"Unearthed" was the last episode filmed during the first season schedule. Although it was filmed during the first season,[4] "Unearthed" aired during the following season on Monday, January 11, 2010, a departure from its normal timeslot on Thursdays.[5] Actor Joshua Jackson explained the move in April 2009, "[It's] for boring reasons. They only had 22 airdates for our show this year, but they ordered 23 episodes, so we shot one for next year, which is just silly TV network stuff.

As always, check the left column for any shows you're about to watch on Netflix to make sure you don't stumble on spoilers, and report any out of order episodes you find in the comments.

Drake & Josh - Removed from Netflix

We previously listed the corrected orders for Drake & Josh, which was badly out of order and missing episodes from Netflix. Unfortunately Netflix decided that it was too embarrassing to have it so badly out of order, so they simply removed the entire show from Netflix streaming. This has happened a few times in the past, specifically with The Tudors, and quite a few Discovery shows.

Because of this, we suggest that you simply report out of order shows here and elsewhere instead of reporting it to Netflix. At least it we share the right order here you have the chance to watch it, instead of reporting it to them and having them remove the show completely. Of course they have also fixed issues in the past when they were reported, so it's up to you.

Our old posts with the hilariously out of order episodes of Drake & Josh:
Season 1
Season 2

Desperate Housewives - In Order

Update 9/22/2014: All episodes are up and are In Order.

Old Post:
We've gotten some reports of the new season of Desperate Housewives being out of order. It seems to have either been fixed, or only be wrong on certain devices - on streaming from PC the orders look correct. Let us know in the comments if there are any problems with Season 8 for you.

Seasons 1-8: In Order

Season 7 Correct Order: 1-6 , 8, 7, 9-23.

CSI: Miami - Season 1

Update: 9/22/2014: All episodes are In Order now. Netflix fixed them.

Seasons 1-10: In Order.

Old Post:
CSI: Miami Season 1 is slightly out of order. While it's only a few episodes, the order on Netflix currently will spoil the season finale. Instead, watch in the following order:

Season 1: 
1, 2, 23 (Wet Foot, Dry Foot), 3-21, 24 (Freaks and Tweaks), 22 (Body Count).

 Thanks anon for the tip via comments.

Burn Notice - 5 Seasons: In Order

Update: Burn Notice is still showing up out of order for people not watching on a PC, thanks anon for keeping us updated. If you are on something other than a PC, you may want to watch on Amazon Instant to save yourself from spoilers: Burn Notice - Season 5 - please use this referral link to let them know we sent you.

On August 18, 2012, Burn Notice was reported for fixing by Anonymous. We have finished checking all 5 seasons on the Netflix stream and they are all correct but they were reported to be out of order Streaming on a Samsung blueray player. Be very careful before watching Burn Notice, and check the Wikipedia entries to make sure that you don't watch the season endings as Episode 3 and 4 as reported. Hopefully they won't be mislabeled on your device, but on computer streaming through a browser all episodes are in order.

Black Butler - Season 1

Update 9/19/2014: Relisting the episode order here, as they are still messed up, they just got rid of the confusing numbers on Netflix.

The original messed up numbers on Netflix
Season 1: In Order
Episode 1, "His Butler, Able" is listed elsewhere as "His Butler, Talented"
Episode 21, "His Butler, Engaging Servants" is listed elsewhere as "His Butler, Recruiting"

Season 2: In Order
Episode 15, "The Making of Black Butler II" is listed elsewhere as "The Making of Kuroshitsuji II"
Episode 17, "The Threads of the Spider¿s Story"[SIC] is listed elsewhere as "Spiders Intention"
Episode 18, "The Story of Will the Reaper" is listed elsewhere as "The Tale of Will the Shinigami"

Old Order: 1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15,17,19,21,2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20,22,24,26.

Archer - Seasons 1-4

Season 1-3: In Order
Season 4: Recommended order - 1,8, 2-13

Episode 8 was unintentionally aired out of order on TV, with certain aspects making better sense in this, the intended order. You can also watch it in the order it is on Netflix to match the order it aired.

Thanks anon for pointing out the discrepancy. Possible spoilers in the IMDB page linked.

When is Season 5 coming?

Archer Season 4 aired from January - April, 2013, and came to Netflix March 9, 2014. Season 5 aired from January - April, 2014, so we expect it to come to Netflix early March, 2015.
Similarly, Season 6 should start airing January, 2015.

American Horror Story - In Order

Update 9/19/2014: Season 2 was added some time ago, and we verified that both seasons are in order. We also added some speculation about when you can expect Seasons 3 and 4.

Season 1 of American Horror Story, which is the only Season uploaded, is in order. We checked it streaming online from a PC, so if there are any other problems on other devices let us know in the comments.

Season 1 - In Order
Season 2 - In Order

When is Season 3 coming?

Season 2 aired from October 2012 to January 2013, and came to Netflix December 7, 2013. Season 3 aired from October 2013 to January 2014, so we expect it in early December, 2014.

You could therefore expect Season 4 to follow the same pattern, and come to Netflix at the end of 2015.

90210 - All Seasons - In Order

Update 9/19/14: All Seasons have been added to Netflix Instant and are In Order. It lists Season 1 as "1,4,5,6..." instead of "1,2,3,4..." but have no fear, all episodes are in the right order. This completes 90210 as all episodes are online and working fine.

Update 9/24/12: Season 4 has been added to Netflix Instant.

This is a post for the 90210 series that started in 2008, not the 1990-1999 "Beverly Hills: 90210," which is not currently available for instant streaming.

It seems a bit confusing for some that in Season 1, two episodes are listed as "disc only" - but in fact no episodes are missing. Instead, they are combined into the first episode. Here is what the episodes look like on PC:

As you can see, Episode 1 is "We're Not in Kansas Anymore / The Jet Set", while Episodes 2 and 3 are those episodes individually. Then, Episode 4 is actually Episode 3, 5 is 4, etc. Everything else seems to be in the correct order, but let us know in the comments if there are any other problems.

Season 1 order: 1, 4 - 25
Seasons 2 - 5: In Order

About the Lack of US DNS Codes

Dear NetflixFixer readers,

You've probably noticed that there's a pretty big lack of new working DNS codes to connect to the American version of Netflix to see all the great shows only available in this region. Unfortunately there just doesn't seem to be as many server operators willing to let people connect any more. In light of all the people finding us and being disappointed that nothing seems to work, we thought we'd update you about what's going on.

 Why DNS codes stop working

So what is it about them that makes it so hard to find working codes? The answer is that they stop working very frequently. Why is that? It's pretty simple, really:

  1. Someone finds an American DNS server address that will let the public connect to it.
  2. They post about it online.
  3. Thousands of people stream Netflix through it.
  4. The server operator either realizes they mistakenly opened their ports, or they did it on purpose but realize it's too expensive to keep them open. -or- The server can't handle all the traffic and slows down to a crawl or won't even allow new connections due to the high traffic.
That is, unless it's one of the times something more nefarious going on.

Nefarious DNS services

You may have noticed that there are a whole bunch of references to "Playmo codes" in the comments of our two posts [1], [2]. In fact, if you the DNS codes we've posted into your browser, you'll see that some of them automatically forward to a website called "Playmo" (Note: we aren't posting a link because we don't want you to go there. Read on for our reason why before you search for the address and check them out.) This is a more nefarious version of what goes on above:
  1. Services that offer paid DNS codes to allow you to connect to Netflix open one of their ports and their employees "leak" the codes to users on a site like this.
  2. Users post that everything is great, these codes give access to the American version of Netflix, are fast, and free. It gets used widely.
  3. These nefarious services close the port, instead making it forward to their website.
  4. Unsuspecting people follow the link and a certain percentage of them start paying for the DNS codes that used to be free.
We don't want you to fall for this! We understand that codes are sometimes hard to find due to the reasons in the first list, but we are staunchly opposed to paying them for this underhanded tactic to bring in new users. This isn't a post about why you should use our referral link to a non-nefarious DNS provider if you decide it's worth $5, but if you're looking for a link, we do support Unblock-Us who doesn't engage in these kinds of tactics.

So what now?

We are still scouring the web for new codes, and we'll continue to post them when we find them. Earlier today we updated American Netflix DNS Codes Roundup Pt.2 with the one code that was reported working, but we understand that it can be frustrating constantly trying codes that don't work. In the meantime, please post any codes you find in the comments (you can post anonymously) and we'll add it to the main post. You can also get in contact with other NetflixFixers directly on our Facebook page. When we do find some good codes, we'll send out an email to our newsletter which you can sign up for on the right side of this page. We promise not to spam you, as we only occasionally send out a newsletter when we have important updates.

Until then, we're going to get back to our original purpose for a while: finding the right order for shows that were posted out of order on Netflix. You can expect some updates with the newest episodes that are out of order, listed on the left side of this page. Thanks for sticking with us while we try to help improve your Netflix experience!

Comcast Agent, Technician, and Supervisor Lie About $180 Charge

Some typical "customer support" from Comcast ISP, charging a man $180 for something he can prove didn't happen, with a recording of the Comcast agent telling him he won't be charged. He even plays the recording of the agent telling him he won't be charged, and the manager tells him that "it is not possible to credit" the charges back onto his account. Finally after fighting tooth and nail and getting his refund, he asks, "You're telling me that if I didn't have a recording of that call, you wouldn't have been able to do it, is that correct?" She responds, "Yes that is correct, yes."

And that's how a monopoly works folks. ISPs stay out of each other's areas so that you only have one choice, and that choice can do whatever they want to you. They tell the government that they aren't a monopoly because there is a separate ISP for each area.

The moral of the story: always record your interactions with big companies. When you hear the message that "this call may be recorded for customer service purposes" that means it's perfectly legal to record it, even in "two-party" areas. A great method is given in the video: use Skype to call customer service lines, and record that. That way it's easy to record, and you can mess around on your computer while you wait on hold for an hour.

Thanks Reddit

Update: Another video is going around with Comcast putting someone on hold for over 3.5 hours... until their offices closed. They just literally left him on hold and went home.
