    Agreed. Easily in my top 5 all-time.

    I bought this a couple months ago on Amazon to watch at work. Of course I watched it again when I saw it was on Netflix.

    I finished Babylon Berlin and the show had an incredible final two episodes. The show has Soviets, Trotskyites, German communists, proto-nationalists, corrupt police and organized crime jostling for position within the Weimar Republic era Berlin.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    I started out liking Black Mirror, but they're starting to feel like average Twilight Zone episodes that drag on too long.

    Yep the quality of the episodes is so variable. Some of them are so amazing and thought-provoking that I think about them for months. Others are just weird and painful to watch.

    Cinema Paradiso has been on Netflix since 1/1 (according to instantwatcher). Re-watched it last night... had not seen it since my wife and I saw it for a date back at the BYU IC in '91. Great film. Great music.

    San Junipero, Nosedive (since I get scored out of 5 stars after every patient interaction that one hit home), The Entire History Of You, USS Callister, and Be Right Back are great.

    The very first episode with the British PM blackmailed is probably my least favorite of the whole thing, along with the one where the bear was elected to office.

    Love that movie. The theme music is timeless. I've actually only ever seen the theatrical version. Not sure whether I ever want to see the Director's Cut -- I fear it would fill in gaps better left open-ended.

    The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale is worth watching.

    I'm watching some food documentary series featuring some pretentious Japanese-American chef hipster guy who goes around and tries to get a taste of different kinds of food and their history. I like the show despite the not-that-likable principal.

    Netflix has really stepped up it's game in the movie department. Perusing last night I noticed.
    * Godfather 1 and 2 (lets pretend the 3rd doesn't exist)
    * Casino
    * Inglorous Basterds- One of the best extended opening scenes ever
    * City of God
    * Shawshank Redemption
    * Caddyshack
    * Hurt Locker
    * Dead Poet's Society

    Hurt Locker & City of God = overhyped.

    The rest of those are watchlist worthy.

    Default The "did you know this streams on Netflix?" thread

    I will have to rewatch CoG to see what it’s like on the 3rd viewing. The first time I saw it, I had heard a few things about it, but not much. I thought it was fantastic. 2nd time I watched it a few years later I could focus more on the story than the subtitles, again I thought it was very well done. We’ll see on the trifecta

    Hurt Locker is the opposite. I didn’t see it for the first time until well after all the Oscar buzz. At first I thought it was above average, nothing spectacular. For whatever reason it is constantly on the free movie channel that comes with Charter. I have found it very rewatchable (at least in parts. Haven’t gone soup to nuts with it yet). I don’t recall what awards it won. It likely was overhyped at the time, but then misogynists like Dude have now made it underrated. Give it another spin.

    You all need to go watch Wild, Wild Country on Netflix ASAP. 6-hr documentary on Bagwan Shree Ragneesh and his new age religion that located to rural Oregon in the early 80's. It is mesmerizing. Reviews are all very good, and deservedly so.

    I’m looking forward to when I have enough time to get through this. I was living in rural Oregon when this was all going down. I vividly remember dinner and school discussions about this.

    This story led the nightly news in Portland in the early 80's... The names and faces are second nature to me... I'm about two hours in right now and find the back story so interesting. The story is going to get crazy as it progresses...

    My FiL always compares the angst in Oregon over the Ragneeshies to how people in Ohio, Missiouri and Illinois must have felt about the Mormons.
