Netflix currently watching

Recommended Posts

I love my Netflix. Never really watched TV shows/Movies but the occasional MotoGP and going to Cinema but now there are sooooo many options.

 

So I've watched the full episode of 'Cosmos' by Neil de Grasse Tyson. Amazing

 

Watched some old movies (Event Horizon, Total Recall, Star Trek into darkness etc) as I don't really know what movie to watch !

 

What else are there...?

 

I am pointing my VPN to the US and quite surprised to find a title that's not there but available in Europe (Nicolas Cage "Knowing"). I wonder what else.

 

Please share us what you watch and maybe a bit of review! :)

I just signed up for a new mobile plan and I was given a free 6 month subscription to Netflix :)

We really enjoy it. Movies on demand.

The thing that impresses me the most is the definition of the movies. High quality playback.

There is something for everybody to watch and no annoying advertisements that make you jump for the volume control !

We will be continuing the subscription at the end of the 6 month free period.

Not movies but if you haven't watched the House of Cards series then I recommend it. Kevin Spacey is outstanding in it.

 

 

There is also season 1 of Marco Polo which took a few episodes to get going but still pretty good and interesting from a historical perspective.

I use a laptop connected to my TV :).

 

But in any case my VPN is terminated from the Router so if I have a netflix appliance in the future that will work too.

Have been watching Falling Skies mostly (almost finished 4th season). Big fan, kind of like walking dead but with aliens. Can certainly recommend.

House of Cards will likely be next on my list

Ooh will have to check this out, prefer aliens over zombie rubbish. Don't know why. Must be because aliens are much more plausible than zombies! Haha.

A few tv series but mainly enjoying Shameless (US version) starring William H Macy as an alcoholic, unemployed father whose family manages to survive in spite of him. Sounds grim but it's actually a lot of fun, providing you like your comedy black.

I know the uk version and that is really really good.

I got all excited when i saw they had shameless.

Then i noticed it was the us version i was gutted.

I tried watching it, but didn't lasted longer then 5 minutes..

Great show. Huge contrast against walking dead though as it takes a much more optimistic view of humanity and the survivors of an apocalypse.

It is actually nice to see the main characters maintain their belief in doing 'the right thing' despite what is going on around them.

I enjoy both shows.

I just attempted to check what Netflix has to offer, but there is no guide to show what it has.

 

Or have I missed it?

Thanks for the heads up - I'll check out the UK version. I gave it a shot because I'm a fan of William H Macy and figured he was perfect for this character.

I've taken up the Netflix offer on my Oppo 105D of a free month's trial. Excellent value for those who like movies.

 

The sound I'm getting from Netflix is very good indeed.....does anyone know what format Netflix uses for their audio?

Overall very happy with the quality sound & picture quality wise - great interpretive playing of next episodes with series & personal preferences.

 

Lot of old movies but there's always some you haven't seen - enjoying watching Weeds & American Horror Story (Kathy Bates & Jessica Lange are fantastic !)

I agree with other members here....Netflix is great value and the quality of video and audio is excellent. Would like to see more movies from the pre 1970s era....the classics.
