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! :)

Hi All,   For those interested The Expanse Series 4 is scheduled to begin streaming on Amazon Prime on December 13.     JJ

Hi All,   Watching the 4th Series of The Last Kingdom, loosely based on the post death goings on in Britain after the death of Alfred, The Great.    Danes still marauding, there is

Loving Ratched so far. Sarah Paulson is amazing and already a big fan from her American Horror Story appearances    Ratched is a suspenseful drama series that tells the origin story of asylu

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.

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.

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.

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?

Depends on the show

Lossy 2ch to Dolby digital 5.1

No HD audio or anything

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.

Signed up yesterday for a free month and so far the family and I are liking it.

Very surprised by the quality of picture and sound

Gave 'Daredevil' a shot after a friend's recommendation. Was pleasantly surprised as I don't have much interest in comic book adaptations. Fight choreography was impressive and the story ain't half bad, courtesy of screenwriter Drew Goddard.

Firstly, currently watching Daredevil along with a couple of older movies and Dysney stuff for the kids.

Secondly, is anyone else having problems with picture dropping quality?

I have read where Netflix will drop picture quality rather than buffer which I have noticed. Today it actually started to buffer while watching. Firstly I could really see the difference in the picture while watching House of Cards, then it started to buffer - happened a few time.

I have fast enough internet, but no sure if it has something to do with telstra during peak usage???

Cheers

Jon

Jon, you most likely have your stream setting set to auto. You can adjust it to a fixed video output and it won't drop quality (but you may have to deal with buffering).

I watched the brilliant but sad doco about Nina Simone last night.

Titled "What Happened Miss Simone?", it's just been released on Netflix. I'm a huge fan, she is my favourite female artist, and the doco gives a great insight to this greatly talented, but equally tormented woman.

I can feel a big day spinning Nina Simone records tomorrow.

I got an email from Netflix about it today. Definitely on my watch list.

Cool, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

I've read a couple of books about Nina, and have researched heaps online about her life, but the doco showed stuff that I never knew. Some excellent footage throughout of Nina performing, a must see for Nina fans IMO.

Binge watched Mad Men. Had only seen the first season and never continued with it. Great acting, dialogue, sets are wonderful and apparently true to the time period. Plot takes second fiddle but I was happy to enjoy the spectacle.
