Any other Netflix fans here? I’ve been getting into watching stuff on Netflix lately. I only do the streaming, don't order the DVDs. They have tons of movies available—but only about 10% of which I’d actually want to watch. A couple decent movies I’ve seen lately: Limitless, The Troll Hunter and Trees Lounge. None of the three were *great* movies. But worth watching.

Anyway, I’d thought a thread like this would be a good place to compare notes/recommendations about stuff on Netflix.

It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long, the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter, while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. But then winter came and the grasshopper died. And the octopus ate all his acorns. Also he got a race car. Is any of this getting through to you?

I've found Netflix is also a good place to watch cable/TV series that are not on at a convenient time for me, or are no longer shown on TV. Also old TV series that aren’t available anyplace else. Like old episodes of Columbo (is that a movie or TV series?), Portlandia, Louie and 30 Rock. They also have the first season of Archer, which of course is mandatory to see. And Sparticus, made for TV series on Starz.

If you've never watched the series Blue Mountain State, you should. It is freaking hilarious!

We have both instant and Blu-ray's through Netflix.
I like the instant for TV shows...purely because I can watch shows I've been wanting to see for while. I just got into watching Lost and it's nice to sit and watch them all back to back. I also caught up with Mad Men recently
They're movie selection on instant is kind of lacking. And their HD quality isn't quite HD yet, IMO.

Here's a couple movies you might like that ARE on instant, though (just going through my list):
The Red Violin
Pelada
The Way Back
The Game
The Next Three Days
Blindsight
On A Clear Day
Limitless
Sherlock (TV series....really good one too that they should be continuing shortly)
I Love You Phillip Morris
Proof of Life
Winter's Bone
Black Death
Knockaround Guys
Ip Man
The Fountain

My brother-in-law introduced me to Glee. I love stargate so I finally got into universe. Really enjoyed the prince of persia movie. Really depends on your taste.

If you enjoy drama (not necissarily chick movies) then I really liked Grey Owl but I'm a HUGE Pierce Brosnan fan...

Been wanting to check out the Sherlock Holmes that BennyChico mentioned above.

Honestly it's mostly for the kids as I don't buy cable (other than sports and now movies I don't watch it) so I love all the selection...

Definitely do. And it's just called "Sherlock"...don't confuse it with the movie. It's kind of a modern day Sherlock Holmes
It's only been around for 3 or 4 shows. They're supposed to be continuing the series soon...but the first few got me hooked.

I started watching Sons of Anarchy on Netflix a little over a month ago and I couldn't stop watching. I watched all 3 seasons in a matter of weeks.

Party Down
Arrested Development (I had never seen it before)
The League

ThanksKilling (It had a $3500 budget, a hilariously awful B-movie)

I've been watching some stand-up on there too. I recommend Bill Burr's "Let it go" It was really fitting for me and my friends. Russell Peters is good too. As well as Jim Gaffigan if you've never seen him.

This is a mix and match, some shows some movies. I like all this stuff, your mileage may vary. And is currently all availible for instant play.

Terriers
Kick Ass
Men Who Stare at Goats
Archer
The Machinist
Big Trouble in Little China
Dollhouse
Sports Night
Battlestar Galactica(the new series, not the one with Dirk Benedict)
Futurama
Burn Notice

I can offer longer thoughts on them if someone asks.

Several movies/series mentioned that I’ve been thinking about watching. And some I’ ve not even heard of. Like Party Down, Knockaround Guys, and Alice's Restaurant. I’m not familiar with these. Have to give them a look.

A couple series I’ve been getting into are The Unusuals and Weeds. I think the Unusuals is off the air already. One season and out. I hadn’t heard of it when it was on a couple years back.

I had never heard of Party Down until I got Netflix, easily one of the funniest shows I have ever watched.

Hell yes! I was really getting into, but having only two seasons was a real bummer. They're making a movie for next year though!

I watched one of Bill Hicks' stand-up performances from 1989 last night. That guy was pretty damn interesting/funny. Too bad he died so early.

She does have bad taste in TV. But she just curls up beside me. Takes a sip of my bourbon. And let's me watch whatever I want. (While she reads People magazine or goofs around on the interwebs.) If I want to watch something that the both of us can view, we catch an old episode of 30 Rock.

I'll give Primer a view. I like time travel movies.



As for Trainspotting mentioned above, I found this movie to be disturbing for some reason. I think it was the baby scene that got me. Anyway, I think I'll lighten up on the heroin for a while. /jk

One of my favorite all time stand up comedians. Imo, a very underappreciated comic. There are a lot of accusations out there that Denis Leary basically lifted his entire routine from Bill. There was a long time joke amongst comedians and others inside the entertainment industry that went something like, "why is Denis Leary famous and no one knows who Bill Hicks is? Because there is no cure for cancer." I always liked Denis too, until I heard that. No Cure for Cancer was pretty GD funny though, I gotta admit.

I'd never seen Parks and Rec until I went through the whole Netflix slate, and at this point I think I like it even better than The Office. I'm fully immersed in Breaking Bad right now. After I get done with that it sounds like I'm gonna have to check out Party Down.

I wonder if they have that one workout show that HBO? had on when my hometown first discovered cable.
They had these hot babes on giant turntables? in one piece swimmin' suits... photographing them from new angles than what we were used to while they were on all fours doing unnatural things with their hind legs.

I remember introducing it to my big brother one night when he was home from college and we were both hypnotized for a good 20 minutes every night at 11pm...

Several years later I saw it playing on the background monitors of the Man;s Show.

Trailer park boys. If you like workaholics, you'll love this show. It will make you cry from laughter.

"But our trip was different. It was a classic affirmation of everything right and true and decent in the national character. It was a gross, physical salute to the fantastic possibilities of life in this country—but only for those with true grit. And we were chock full of that."

Watched the Starz movie "Kill the Irishman" last night. If you haven't seen it already I'd HIGHLY recommend it. I guess it's loosely based on a true story. Makes me want to read the book now.

It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long, the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter, while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. But then winter came and the grasshopper died. And the octopus ate all his acorns. Also he got a race car. Is any of this getting through to you?

I'm watching "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret"

It's pretty funny. If you like David Cross and Will Arnet from Arrested Development, this might be your thing. There is only one season on instant though.

Another Starz thing I watched these past couple of weeks is "The Take". A gangster mini-series of four episodes set in London. It was okay.

Surprised no one's mentioned Memento yet. Its Christopher Nolan (Inception and the Dark Knight director for all you movie noobs out there) its absolutely fantastic.

Breaking bad's good, so is all of Louis C.K.'s stand-ups. Reservoir Dogs is an instant classic as well.
