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?

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!

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 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.

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.

My two favorite shows to go to Netflix for (Mythbusters, Doctor Who) aren't being kept up-to-date. That's why I asked for an insider's look at what Netflix is really up to. If they're more interested in doing their own line of programming, then I might as well subscribe to Hulu.

First - team Castiel! Swoon!

Loved Dollhouse! That was a big Netflix discovery for us. I think Enver Gjokaj (Victor) is a hidden treasure! That guy could act! And dance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYKtKyxQr_k

Another kick ass discovery was the Red Riding Trilogy. Dark and gritty and filmed in the type of 16 or 35mm film used in the era they were portraying. Very dark, very Noir. Fell in love with Andrew Garfield in these well before I saw him anywhere else.

I also have an unhealthy obsession with most of the Investigation Discovery shows.

Doctor Who! I was suggested this show in my geek thread and have been marathoning through the seasons. I have to admit to a serious man-crush on Captain Jack...but the Doctors Daughter just showed up provide some balance that one!

I'm pretty sure if those two got together time and space would implode from the sheer awesomeness!

Seriously though...Captain Jack in the man...

Torchwood is... ok I guess? It's NOTHING like Doctor Who. Not even close. Different kind of show entirely. But what they do to Captain Jack as a character just killed me in the two or three episodes I watched.

Blech.

I really don't understand this love of Netflix...

I mean, I have an account but I only order DVD's from it.

I almost NEVER stream anything...

Especially since *gasp* I don't have anyway to watch it on the TV... I don't even know how you people do that...

I just pay the cable bill and watch whatever I find.

When I do stream video... it's at school for the kids.

jrc, I like Netflix because you can find series that haven't been on for literally decades (ST:TOS, Mission:Impossible, Dark Shadows, etc.) and hidden gems that got cancelled well before they should have (like Firefly and Dollhouse). Or if you're in the mood for B grade entertainment of any genre, you can find that too.

We also watched some movies and series on their TV. Now I have to subscribe! Lots more I want to see. Dr. Who, here I come!

Netflix streaming was all I had for TV entertainment last year when living with my Dad during his final 6 months. Totally got hooked on Burn Notice, watched all of Bones, Supernatural, a few British mysteries like Rosemary & Thyme. But best of all was the UK (original) Top Gear. I would put on one of their epic cross-country adventures and just laugh till I cried.

The bullshit episodes of Top Gear are the best. Like when they played hockey with cars, or ran a rocket propelled car off a ski jump, or when they had The Stig take a snowmobile off a ski jump.

They put up a bunch of James Bond streaming flicks until May 1st. Haven't seen all of them and I know they're horrible films, but I feel like I should be taking advantage of this somehow... Ever see the limited-time-offer streaming films and whether you'd be interested in the film or not feel compelled to watch it?

I've spent entirely too long shutting down my brain for the last four years. Netflix helped :P

A Doctor Who fan here, and a Joss fan. My fav's: Firefly, Dollhouse, and if you haven't watched Buffy - well it is seven seasons full of with Whedon humor.

Also enjoyed Lost, Alias, Battlestar Galactica and another oldie: Star Trek's - Voyager.

Oh - Eureka! and Warehouse 13 is good too!

Don't have netflix but in the UK we had lovefilm first so use that instead. Am currently working through all the Angel episodes.

On the torchwood note from earlier, season 1 was a waste of airwaves, season 2 was better (plus James Masters..), the 3rd "season" Children Of Earth was really good, and Miracle Day just dragged on too long.

However the appear of Torchwood for me is that I used to eat Ice cream during my lunch hour whilst standing above the Torchwood head quarters. Its also good when you watch Dr Who running through London and know that it is actually St Mary's street in Cardiff. Oh and if you have not watched any of the other spin off show, the Sarah Jane Adventures, that is filmed in Penarth, just across the road from where I went to school

I wonder how many of the BS here would be just a little upset if their spouse was talking about Eliza Dushku or Summer Glau they way some of you are talking about the actors?

I'm certain my family would be entirely lost without Netflix. Even with a reduced catalog, there's something for each of us when we're having a chill-out night. Between devices and two Rokus in the house, everybody can cozy up with their favorite show or film and stay out of one another's hair for JUST TEN MINUTES OMG I'M GOING TO PUT YOU ALL UP FOR ADOPTION I'M TRYING TO PEE IN HERE.

Oh. Sorry. Slightly tense lately.


p.s. If they don't get the next season of How I Met Your Mother soon, I'm going to have to march on the HQ. I've only ever watched it via Netflix and I'm jonesin'.

love, love, love Netflix. Right now making my way through The West Wing. Loved that show when it originally aired.

I'm British so I love all the UK shows that they have. If your looking for a good crime show then Taggart is fabulous.
