    Netflix Recommendations

    I'm laid up for a week here after a bit of surgery. Can anyone recommend anything good on netflix to eat up part of my days?

    not netflix, but Hulu is free....check out some of the documentaries under You are What You Eat if you find that stuff interesting.
    There's always Fast Times at Ridgemont High, CaddyShack, Airplane, and Stripes....classic stuff from the 80's

    TV Series are always good. I've been watching Breaking Bad. The Office is a good one. American Horror Story.

    I like goofy campy horror movies and Netflix doesn't disappoint on those!

    Arrested Development. Firefly a second time. Serenity. Top Gear (uk version). Cabin in the Woods. Hit and Run. Butter. Hard Times. Goon. Lars and The Real Girl. Super 8. Timer. I'm read Fish. Firefly a third time. Some people like Mad Men, but I'm not a huge fan. Same with it's always sunny in philadelphia. Do they still have Party Down on streaming? If so, that was lots of fun.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    I'm a big fan of 'So You Think You Can Dance'.

    Not sure if they're on NetFlix, but MasterChef Australia, MasterChef UK, and MasterChef New Zealand
    are entertaining as well as educational.

    Get well soon.

    Are you into TV series... I just recommend this to a friend who had foot surgery - she thanked me for it... the first 2 seasons of "The Walking Dead" (if you have not seen it). I like "American Horror Story" as well - Season 2 not 1. Also on Hulu if you can get "Hannibal" a worthy show to watch. Also "The Following". And lastly - "Being Human"... I prefer the BBC version as it is grittier but the SyFy version is good as well...

    On Netflix:
    -Sons of Anarchy. Awesome!
    -Star Trek, the original series. (Other series OK, but none top the original)
    -The Twilight Zone. All seasons available, except the fourth season episodes. These one hour episodes have never been included in a syndication package.

    On Hulu:
    -The Outer Limits. You want the original, black and white series. All episodes available.
    -Night Gallery. Seems only season 1 is available. For some reason, the pilot episode, featuring an excellent piece from a young director named Steven Spielberg,
    is not there. Try to see it on Youtube.

    -Highway Patrol. I've been told that series star Broderick Crawford had a drinking problem, and lost his CA license while this was being filmed. Talk about irony...

    -Lost in Space. You want the first season, all black and white episodes. They actually did some good science fiction in this season, before the whole show turned into
    a big steaming pile of Bat Guano.

    Enjoy!

    I'm on a Netflix free trial and the kids are eating up Charmed and Family Guy. I'm finding the movie selection somewhat lacking (at least using the app- prolly better through a browser). In addition to Hulu (which comes in both free and paid flavors), there is Crackle- which is free and has an eclectic assortment of shows and movies (where I get my Married...with Children fix).

    "Battlestar Galactica", 2004 TV series. This series has captivated me more than just about anything I've ever watched on TV. The first years of Lost were close, but then it failed to deliver. BG did deliver all the way through.

    Another series that I like is "Enterprise", the prequel to Star Trek.

    X-files, Andy Griffith, Prison Break, Rockford Files, Magnum PI, and a second for Twin Peaks... Though I understand why I lot of people hate it, I can't help but love it. David Lynch is a nut.

    The Story of Film by Mark Cousins is a thorough and scholarly review of film making from Edison to the present. 15 hours worth.

    The Laurel and Hardy Essential Collection has 10 DVDs so it will keep you going for a while.

    You might also check out Zombies of the Stratosphere, a great 50's serial.

    Supernatural and American Horror Story can keep you entertained for hours on end if you like horror type shows.

    If you like British detective stuff, Sherlock (the recent BBC "modern" Holmes series) is excellent, and for an oddly good-natured murder mystery series I'd highly recommend Midsomer Murders. Honestly the British mystery shows make American cop stuff look like the fluff that it is. One of my friends is really enjoying the British Wallander, but I haven't seen it.

    I totally agree with the Battlestar Galactica recommendation, but it can be a bit high on the stress-cliffhanger-drama scale... might not be as conducive to resting and healing.

    Very interesting lists of old B&W TV... just goes to show that they seem to have forgotten how to make good TV.

    Wow, old Outer Limits... I have to check that out, some of those were really really good. Zone marathons come on all the time.

    ^haven't seen any of your first 5 recommendations on netflix lately. maybe i'm missing them. wish there were more movies such as those vs the 99% fluff
    that netflix usually has. whenever i do use netflix, it's nearly always in the documentary section which is their best option imho.
