Your favorite Netflix Instant watch titles
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 I look around for "best of", but the lineup changes and the lists get quickly outdated.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.

Pingu is great for kids and family. My personal fav is Family Guy.
Unique Vintage Steel
Pingu is hilariously cute.
Top Gear. (full stop as they stay on the other side of the pond)
Curmudgeon in Training
Battlestar Galactica (original)
Shaun the Sheep
Twilight Zone (Outer Limits is next and far better in my book)
Trailer Park Boys when I need some mindless entertainment.

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.

I dumped NF a couple months ago due to their lousy instant movie selection and upped price.
However, I did enjoy the two seasons of Dollhouse on NF. And the first two of Dexter, while they kept them available. Watched the seasons 3-5 of Dexter (awesome show!) on justintv for free.
Star Trek TNG
SNL 1970s, 1980s and 1990s
Kolchak: The Night Stalker
There's also an ample supply of schlocky 70s disaster flicks like Airport/77/79, Earthquake and more. Just do a search on Charlton Heston or George Kennedy and enjoy the bounty!
Curmudgeon in Training
I've recently embarked on The Wonder Years and That 70's Show. Definitely some good times.
