I love stumbling across shows on Netflix that I didn't pay attention to when they originally aired.

Netflix brought me to Doctor Who almost 2 years ago. Took a while to work through that treasure trove of episodes.

My latest find? Supernatural. I knew about the show way back when it first started, but I'd never seen it. Now I'm midway through the 3rd season. Love the music, the brotherly humor, the kick ass '67 Impala, and the occasional visits from dear old dad (Jeffrey Dean Morgan - swoon).

Anyone else go fishing on Netflix and land something good?

NetFlix is how I got hooked on Grey's Anatomy, Son's of Anarchy, and Mad Men. LOL

I keep Netflix for this very reason, because trying to find a movie to watch on there is a PITA.

I found and watched all episodes of Army Wives and some lawyer show with Glenn Close....can't remember the name now. Oh, and Lie To Me.

I love how the next episode just automatically starts without any prompting from me. Just veg out on the couch and watch episode after episode. Pretty cool set-up.

I just finished both seasons of Jericho. I'm about to start watching Lost. I've gone through Firefly too. Netflix is a shell of what it once was, but there is a little bit of decent stuff left.

Northern Exposure! I love it when it was actually airing. But it had been a long time. So I made may way through it again. Such great characters.

I'm popping in to respond to the Supernatural aspect of this thread, rather than Netflix.

I LOVE this show. For all the reasons you mentioned, PLUS, hello Jensen Ackles! I drop references all the time, I know it's super annoying/nerdy and lame but I do it anyway. For instance, recently I was at a local museum that had an artifacts room. It reminded me of some of the episodes I've seen about "cursed objects." I remarked to my friend something about "if this was Supernatural, something would be getting salted and burned up in here." He's not a fan so he didn't get it. He looked at me like this: : l

Anyway, sorry to t/j!

Amen!

Yes- I watch whenever I can, but like you, I'm only interested recently. I've been buying the dvds one season at a time (I'm finally on season 7) I love the humorous banter between the boys, the way they interact with Bobby, and you haven't gotten there yet but the social awkwardness of the angel, Castiel (Cas). It is hilarious.

But surprisingly, sometimes it has heart too.

There's a cool feature where the Netflix screen shows only kids' shows and movies. They have an awesome selection on the instant queue, like Super Why, Color Crew (those crayons look... dare I say high?), Thomas & Friends, Mighty Machines, etc. Great selection, though I'm looking forward to venturing back into the normal section someday... hopefully soon.

Every television series I've ever watched that wasn't a cartoon I've seen on Netflix.

Now they have the Cartoon Network stuff, from Samurai Jack to Robot Chicken.

We recently watched all of Psych, working through How I Met Your Mother. If you have not seen Better Off Ted, give it a shot, funny show.

Breaking Bad, The IT Crowd, Brisco County Jr, Metalocalypse, Battlestar Galactica, Rome, The 10th Kingdom, Dead Like Me, Trailer Park Boys, Star Wars: The Clone Wars (though I bought S1-4 cuz I wanted to watch them over and over), Penn & Teller's Bullshit!, Deadwood, Trigun (though we have that on DVD already), Walking With [insert here], Cosmos, Futurama, The Universe, some other series with that guy from Shaun of the Dead... er. Look, it's the only TV we watch. In fact we've only used Netflix for so long I have lost the inherent male ability to operate a remote control when it comes to navigating cable, I always end up on Cartoon Network or some cooking channel.

I've seen all of Grey's Anatomy, Brothers & Sisters, and Law and Order SVU. Currently watching Psych and Burn Notice with SO. I sometimes Horders and whatever Nanny show is on there. SO watches Family Guy when I'm not home.

I caught Supernatural on Netflix too. I saw the first 7 seasons there and watching the 8th on broadcast TV. I also caught a Stephen King miniseries called Golden Years. (Yes, the theme song is Bowie's "Golden Years")

A few short lived series I've seen are Dollhouse (a Joss Whedon series) Journeyman and Amsterdam (New Amsterdam?) ?

No Netflix here, but I recently discovered Golden Girls on my directv. I wasn't allowed a lot of media exposure growing up, so I'd never seen it before last fall. I absolutely love it.

They lost the starz account, so with that went tons of movies.

Love, Love, love Supernatural! I am fully prepared now to defend myself against nearly any kind of creature! We discovered this show when we were stationed overseas and there was a lack of programming to watch. Started midway through season 2, and had to immediately go buy season 1 on dvd to catch up!

From Netflix, I discovered Alias. Had to do it on the discs, but so glad I did!

Starz really doesn't make a difference anymore. They lost money after they bailed on Netflix, Netflix beat their Disney bid so in 2016 they lose that too and it's not like anyone really gives a shit about ancient Paramount Pictures films enough to complain that Netflix isn't carrying early 90's films even I can't remember the names of without resorting to an Internet search.

Right now Netflix is sucking more than usual because they don't seem to understand that a decent GUI is in the top 3 "What is best in life" answers when it comes to streaming video and they are putting money into original content, which means an awkward phase transition. Right now they're all elbows and knees but in a couple years if shit goes well they will be all boobs and smiles. Assuming that show with Kevin Spacey is as good as I hear anyway.

At the risk of sounding uninformed... what did Netflix used to be like?
