Scratch is quality, got that on DVD, gonna watch it again when I get home from work.Posted 4 years ago
Breaking Bad +1.
Just got into Sons of Anarchy, I have rinsed the first 4 series in 2 weeks, its like visual crack.
Some of the Saturday Night Live stuff is good, can be a bit hit and miss at times though.
Invasion of the Killer Tomatoes for some good old 80s B-movie horror.phildawsMember
Modern family is really good, it’s cheesy and family orientated, but very well written and there are a load of episodes.
Second vote for Portlandia, very good Series 1/2, 3rd not quite as good but still has it’s moments.
Film wise, I like Into The Wild, 50:50 is good, Adventure Land worth a watch… as is Other Guys/Grown Ups if you like Will Farrel/Comedies.
Also worth watching the Bones Brigade documentary, even if you don’t like skateboarding it is great to see the old footage and see how the kids coped with fame, fortune and growing up… Dogtown and Z Boys is also interesting and a pretty good lead-up to the Bones doc.Posted 4 years ago
Struggling to find good stuff and the ‘popular on Facebook’ selection is always pap. Thought it would be good to invite random recommendations as I’m sure there’s some hidden gems in that vast library.
Here are some of mine:
King of Kong – superb documentary on arcade gamers racing to reach a top score. So so good.Posted 4 years ago
Weeds – darkly funny US series – drops in quality after first couple of seasons but well worth a watch.
Scratch – geeky documentary on the birth and evolution of scratching / hip hop.
Whip It – full of cliches but funny and well done.
Youth in Revolt – slightly random comedy but very funny in parts.
Glengarry Glen Ross – finest swearing ever committed to film. Stellar cast.cookeaaSubscriber
I love netflix use it on my phone tablet and the Wii, Lovefilm online doesn’t get used anything like as much TBH.
I like some of the Documentarys and I find myself watching full series of stuff, considering the price I’d say I’m getting through about 1 1/2 Box sets worth of general viewing a month
Bones Brigade and Dogtown are definately worth watching, I watched most of theat Dragonslayer doc’ but found myself wanting to slap the little fool after a while.
“Countdown to Zero” is and interesting, if slightly alarming, look at the potential thtreat posed by Nuclear terrorism, “Revenge of the Electric Car” I found interesting too.
You’ll get through all the Archer series on there inside of a a week, but it is very funny.
I like Sci-fi crap so I’m just finishing up Battlestar Gallactica Series 4…
I need to get into breaking bad and Portlandia next…
Our Kids probably watch too many cartoons via the Wii, but it is handy if you do need to occupy them.
I’m actually looking forwards to the missus next lot of Celbity Jungle-Factor-Tallent Tosh as I can just quietly watch netflix on my tablet with my earphones in without her complaining that I’m being antisocial.Posted 4 years ago
