I've had Netflix for a while now. I was kind of PO'd when they jacked up the prices, but I get enough out of the instant watch to justify keeping just it and ditching the DVD option. I look around for "best of", but the lineup changes and the lists get quickly outdated. I mostly get hooked on the series, the movie selection kinda sucks. They have some good ones but ya gotta dig deep and be willing to take a chance. Thankfully it's "free". I've seen some great movies I never would have rented.
Some of the series on my queue include
- The original Twilight Zone
- Breaking Bad
- The Wonder Years
- The Office
- 30 Rock
- The Walking Dead
Some I've completed and are worth watching:
- Battlestar Galactica
Some movies that wound up being real good:
- Old Boy (gory)
- Black Death (really gory)
- Ninjas vs Vampires (campy gore)
- Let the Right one In (more gore)
- Ip Man 1 & 2 (little less gore, really great fighting)
- The Gamers: Dorkness Rising (a must watch for old D&D players)
The kids (2&4) have a pretty good selection:
- Shaun the Sheep
- Phineas and Ferb
- old school She-Ra and Garfield (really really bad...did I really enjoy these as a kid?)
Have any recommendations to either watch or stay far far away from? I'd add the ones that suck but I don't have enough time or energy.
I've been an instant-only netflix subscriber for a while now, was always too lazy to check my mailbox and make a que.
I use it mostly for tv shows, mostly cause its a short something to fall asleep to, and not a movie that'll keep me up. I've watched most if not all of:
and now Breaking Bad
I've watched some of Mad Men, interesting, but couldn't get into it.
Movies blow for the most part, but I hope with more $$ coming in for instant subscribers will mean better shows sometime soon. If not, i'll probably end my netflix subscription in the next few months.
