    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 I look around for "best of", but the lineup changes and the lists get quickly outdated.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
    - Eureka
    - Breaking Bad
    - The Wonder Years
    - The Office
    - 30 Rock
    - Futurerama
    - The Walking Dead

    Some I've completed and are worth watching:

    - Battlestar Galactica
    - Firefly

    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
    - Pingu
    - 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.

    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:
    Weeds
    Californication
    Family Guy
    The Office
    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 couldn't get into the show about the motorcycle gang. I can't even remember the name.

    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.

    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!

    I've recently embarked on The Wonder Years and That 70's Show. Definitely some good times.
