Watching internet TV/videos. What LCD refresh rate needed?

I am finally new to purchasing a LCD TV. We are replacing our 27" flat screen tube TV. I had done my research and found a 42" LCD. I explained to the sale person that I wanted to also hook up my computer to it and get rid of cable. He told me that I couldn't use a 60hz refresh rate when watching videos off the internet. It will have a ghosting effect. I needed a 120hz refresh rate. Is this true?
I just hooked up the new 42" LCD 1080p 120hz TV. I watched a movie off of Netflix and I didn't like the look of the movie. The look I am referring to is the more 3D or more real look. Our old 27" tube TV had a great pitcher. We just wanted to get a larger screen and gain space. I like the look of films at the movie theater and I don't need it enhanced beyond the them.
I am looking at exchanging the TV for a 60hz refresh rate. I will be watching a movie tonight that I just watched 2 days ago on the 27" and see how it views on this 42".
I haven't hooked up my computer yet to the TV to view movies to see how it looks. But, isn't Netflix videos off of the internet? With more reseach I discoved there is Google TV. I may not have to hook up my computer to watch videos off of the internet.
My question is: Will I get a ghosting effect while watching videos off the internet on a 42" 60hz 1080p LCD. Or, do I have to have 120hz?
