Title: What should I watch on Netflix?
Post by: sgore on July 15, 2016, 10:06:40 pm
Hey.

You know what we need.
This thread.
Right here.
Because half the time I have no idea what to watch on Netflix.

(While this may be in the TV section, movies suggestions are also acceptable.)

I recently finished Samurai Flamenco, which was good.
I'm in the middle of Freaks and Geeks, which is fantastic.

I also just watched the Mel Brooks version of To Be or Not To Be. You should please do the same.

Daredevil's pretty good, or at least I enjoyed it. Notably, it has great casting for Kingpin.

Better call Saul is good, but for some reason season 2 isnt on american netflix.
House of cards is ok, at least season 1 and 2 are.
Spartacus is fun if you like campy stuff.
Daredevil is a good reccomendation.
Jessica Jones is also good.
Orange is the new black is ok, first few episodes are terrible though.

And it will never have the movie you want to watch on it.
It might have had at some point, but not when you feel like watching it.

I just started watching one of their new originals, Stranger Things. It's a sort of paranormal 80s mystery show, (all one story not an anthology or something) very much inspired by Spielberg movies and similar also to films like Super 8 and Midnight Special. Lots of synth and precocious kids sneaking out with flashlights. Very high production value.

It's cool!

I really need to make more use of Netflix.  If and when I ever get caught up on Daredevil and Jessica Jones, I'll have to check out some of these.

Watch two episodes a day until you finish. It's way better that way. ;)

I did watch it.
It was great.
It's not just how well they captured the 80s Spielberg/Stephen King movie aesthetic, it's the story beats themselves.
It was genuinely fun and engaging to watch.

Poor Barb, though.

I'm not the TV-watching type. But I opened up Netflix and looked around for a while until I found a show called Longmire. It's a detective-drama-westernish kind of show. I liked it, it wasn't too bad for a first episode and I'll watch another one soon.
