A thread to talk about things you've recently watched on NETFLIX. Share those recommendations (or warnings) here.

Rita - kinda Danish Nurse Jackie (although set in a school and she is a teacher) . Loved it.

I'm always disappointed to see what ISN'T on UK Netflix. And yes, I've heard of the Hola plugin, but it seems to be very temperamental.

But Community is fun.

In pretty much any circumstance I like to use this line from Britta (season 5, episode 1).

"That's like me blaming owls for how much I suck at analogies."

Yeah caught up with first 4 series of The Walking Dead and all of Deadwood on Netflix whilst in Germany, neither is available in the UK.

If anyone has never seen Clue, do yourself a favour and check it out. Watched it on Netflix with the kids a few nights ago, and all of us laughed our heads off pretty much all the way through.

I am currently BInge Watching 'Fringe'- it's like an even better X files.

Also Continuum.

And 'The Mighty Johnsons- which is excellent and VERY VERY under-rated...

Fringe turned out to be excellent after a slow start. Leonard Nimoy was great in the later seasons.

JessicaEccles6 - 04 Mar 2015 13:48:08 (#8 of 2178)

I was very annoyed that none of Nimoy's obits mentioned his work in 'Fringe'- it was well worth noting.

Must give Fringe a binge, only watched the first episode or two. Obviously all of Breaking Bad is on Netflix. Also been watching Continuum. Up to series 6 of Sons of Anarchy, my "boxset" of shame.

I'm also on S6 of SOA, it's crappy, but enjoyable crap.

I watched the first two or three of Fringe, but gave up on it. Maybe I should give it another go.

I'm working my way through Peep Show (OK), and Better Call Saul (great).

Lento_ - 04 Mar 2015 15:45:57 (#11 of 2178)

Oh, and Myth Busters, which is OK for filling in a bit of spare time.

milhouse - 04 Mar 2015 15:47:22 (#12 of 2178)

The next series of Bob's Burgers should be up soon.

MaconLeary - 04 Mar 2015 15:49:20 (#13 of 2178)

And anyone who hasn't seen The Good Wife can watch it most of it on Netflix.

ottoline07 - 04 Mar 2015 19:44:36 (#14 of 2178)

What is Continuum about please? Looking forward to Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt produced by Tina Fey. Launches March 6.

Loved Season 3 of House of Cards and rewatching The US Office which I've only seen a few of. My son is a big fan of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia but I don't get it apart from Danny de Vito who always makes me laugh.

pushkin - 04 Mar 2015 19:56:59 (#15 of 2178)

I've just started HoC, ottoline, first chapter last night. I saw the others and this promises to be just as good.

MonsoonBloom - 04 Mar 2015 20:24:19 (#16 of 2178)

American horror story.

MonsoonBloom - 04 Mar 2015 20:24:56 (#17 of 2178)

That's a programme not a comment on hoc.

Antimatter - 05 Mar 2015 01:36:45 (#18 of 2178)

I watched Mad Men, The Wire, Bones, Sherlock, Life on Mars, Community, all of the Coen Brothers films, all awesome. I am on Canadian Netflix which is a bit poor, I tried the whole IP pretending you are in America thing but it was more trouble than it was worth. And whilst there is more content on American Netflix, most of it is rubbish.

Got a new television, and netflix, day before yesterday. Am oblong-eyed, already, and feel as though I've been to lots of exotic places in comfortable style. May not have quite cracked netflix. There doesn't seem to be a lot there I want to see.

Bellycat - 05 Mar 2015 10:01:07 (#20 of 2178)

I bought my mum and dad an Apple TV yesterday and Netflix is incredibly easy to use on it. They won't know what's hit them.
