    Netflix Streaming Suggestions

    Since it's been established that it's weak on new releases lets try a suggestion thread.

    Recently I watched the first few seasons of Weeds. I enjoyed the show.

    I don't know if Dexter is streamed but I would highly recommend getting yourself addicted to that.

    Re: Netflix Streaming Suggestions

    There's a ton of documentaries that are really good. Here's a few:

    Deep Water
    Exit Through the Gift Shop
    The Cove
    2012: Science or Superstition
    Beer Wars
    The King of Kong
    Deliver Us from Evil

    Non-documentary:
    (these two are in Swedish with English subtitles but really good especially for 'based on book' movies. I have a feeling they will end up being a ton better than the Hollywood versions)
    The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
    The Girl Who Played with Fire

    That's all I can think of for non-documentary since we mostly watch kids movies in that area.

    I've been enjoying "Arrested Development".

    Re: Netflix Streaming Suggestions

    Party Down is a Starz show that showed up on our suggestions. It's crass, but hilarious. We also kind of liked Better Off Ted. Not sure how many are instant anymore, but we watched Seasons 1-5 of Lost on Netflix streaming last year. As someone else mentioned, Dexter is a good one to pick up if you don't already watch. At one point, Californication was on instant--I watched a few episodes of that and liked it, but my husband didn't so we didn't watch it anymore. Also, Terminator: Sarah Conner Chronicles was pretty good.

    One movie that pleasently surprised me was Cashback. There is a fair bit of nudity, but I enjoyed the story quite a bit.

    There are a number of good documentaries,

    Dexter is the best show on television. End of discussion.

    Cashback was a fantastic movie. Slow to start, but the story really hooks you. The nudity is an added bonus.

    Re: Netflix Streaming Suggestions

    Something must be wrong with me. I couldn't get through the first episope of Dexter. Maybe I'll try again.

    The first thing I streamed on Netflix was the first few seasons of Weeds. Good show and the main chick is the freaking hottest MILF ever.

    Exit Through The Gift Shop - Great doc about graffiti at first, but then changes.
    I'm Still Here - Joaquin Phoenix doc. Very bizarre.

    Where I find Netflix streaming most valuable is documentaries. There is a lot of content from History Channel, Discovery Channel, PBS (Frontline, NOVA, etc.).

    I recently watched a great documentary called "Restrepo" which follows a small group of our troops in Afghanistan during a 15 month deployment.

    Their streaming selection of movies is poor but I must say I have watched a lot of documentaries I would have otherwise probably never seen and it adequately fills the gaps between DVD deliveries for me.
