Long overdue IYAM
I noticed they added all 5 seasons of Trailer Park Boys. Pretty funny stuff for some hosers from Canada.
check out super high me. Pretty funny.
Also if you're a doomsday predictor, or conspiracy theorist you should watch Collapse by Michael Rupert. Peak Oil man.
I just watched that tonight. Pretty interesting.
Check out The Vice Guide to Travel, especially the Pakistan and North Korea episodes.
Good thread btw.
Few of my reccomendations
"Brick City" follows Newark Mayor Corey Booker and a few other community figures around Newark, Only 5 or 6 episodes but i got hooked after the first one.
"Freakonomics" basically explains different elements of society using economic principles, sounds boring but its really not.
"Survivors Series 1 & Survivors Series 2" A british show about a flu like disease that wipes out 99% of the world population and a group of survivors that are trying to get by.
"Dead Like Me Seasons 1-2" Comedy/Drama about a girl who dies and become a grim reaper.
"Food Inc" Explores the food industry and some of its dark secrets and the effects they are having on the environment.
"Dhani Tackles The Globe Seasons 1-2" Great show that follows bengals LB Dhani Jones as he goes around the world and tries out different sports.
Thats it for now lol.
Read Freakonomics, the book is better.
i plan on picking it up, literally just became aware of it a few days ago lol
The Office Seasons 1-6
The greatest show ever! imo
Well, I had never watched Lost before Netflix so if you guys are in the same boat, I'd recommend it. Fantastic show.
Law & Order bitches
basically, Netflix is the greatest thing ever for TV shows, pretty damn good for movies
The office ain't got sh** on Curb your Enthusiasm
If you've never seen Arrested Development I highly recommend it. It's one of the funniest shows I've ever seen. I'm about halfway through season 2 and it has been fantastic thus far.
It has like no movies on it
watched The Goods with Jeremy Piven the other night.
Stupid...I fell asleep half way through it.
Watchin 24. It's pretty rad but I'm sure most of you knew that already.
Lie to Me
added a few decent movies to the instant this go around: Prince of Persia, Karate Kid and maybe one or two more... usually not the best selection but theres 1 or 2 worth watching.
think the Godfathers are all on there too
The book is somewhat dated now and they wrote a follow up to it called SuperFreakonomics. Both are probably worth a read though.
The instant streaming for movies is very limited...very lol. The TV show options are OK and the horror movie selection(genre that is my favorite) isnt bad though.
There are so many good TV series on Netflix (mail also):
2. Arrested Development
4. The Office
5. Entourage (Mail Only)
6. Breaking Bad (Mail Online)
I could go on for a while.
I still need to watch:
Sons of Anarchy
MUST watch TV series:
Sons of Anarchy
Friday Night Lights
Good Docs I've watched lately:
Basquiat: The Radiant Child
Confederate States of America
The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia
It had me laughing my ass off and it has some of the best quotable material I've heard in a while.
I def like the Wire - just wish I didnt have to get it through mail. I know Netflix really wants to push the streaming and get rid of the DVD mailing but until they provide a better selection in the streaming category, people arent going to convert.
I really don't get that either. I'd gladly pay extra to have everything available via stream.
I've got over 100 movies in my instant que. As long as you're not super picky, you can find tons of stuff.
Exit Through the Gift Shop
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
and there's a ton of good older movies like Die Hard, Fear and Loathing, Best in Show etc. I just watched Lonesome Dove for the first time (meh)
