Someone should start a sticky on "What have you watched on Netflix recently"
It would help me find some content that I may otherwise over look.

I watched season 1 of Justified and it was great!

Currently watching Madmen season 3. Have watched a bunch of old movies, Teen Wolf, Bad Boys, Fletch I and II, Cheech and Chong's Up in Smoke (I remember how much i loved this movie when i was younger, it is pretty bad seeing it again), and American History X. My kids have also watched a bunch of the cartoons.

My kids and I are watching "Soap" right now.
I was really happy to discover this on Netflix.
I'm quite surprised at how much my kids are enjoying it, considering it's very dated look.
I remember how controversial this show was at the time, back when I was a kid.
Truly, one of the greatest ensemble casts ever.

I like "Twilight Zone'esque" types of movies with twists (especially horror). I've seen so many but the first movie I watched on Netflix was one that I'd never heard of called Dead End {about a family trapped on a never ending road at night with ghostly killers in the woods}. Kinda like a TZ episode padded out for 90 minutes. And with some great witty/sarcastic dialog. Really enjoyed it.

Always looking for recommendations for movies like that :D.

Oh and a similar sort of movie that keeps you guessing to the end but was more of a mystery, definitely not a horror, and from the new releases section: Exam {Eight job applicants sequestered to a room to complete the final exam question before the winning candidate is chosen}. Enjoyed that a lot as well.

I also will admit that I watched The Human Centipede {I think the name says it all - not going into a further synopsis} on Neflix. Conceptually really grotesque but the horror of the situation actually made for a pretty good movie. Sure, lots of flaws with it and yes yes yes, it's really a gross idea but the horrific-ness of the situation kept me intrigued.

Always looking for recommendations along the lines of the three I've mentioned.

I'm watching the Terry Jones series "Medieval Lives," and just finished "Becoming Human" series on human evolution. Very interesting.

I'm also in the middle of Series 2 of MI-5. The episode "I Spy Apocalypse" blew me away!!

Watched Spy Game for the first time in years. Great movie!

My Wife and I watched Jekyll this weekend. Very good bit of a bad ending, but the lead actor James Nesbitt is amazing in it.

Since it's close to Halloween, had to watch The Return of the Living Dead, great classic from the 80's. Shuttle was pretty good, along with the pretty scary [Rec], the original Spanish version of Quarantine.

We just finished watching Season 1 of My Boys and are starting Season 2. It's a half hour sitcom based around a group of friends and the funny stuff they get up to. It's pretty funny and quite witty. Jim Gaffigan's character is a good laugh.

I'm watching some direct to video Jean Claude Van Damme stuff right now (surprisingly not bad and made me missed this 80's/90's genre). Watched Big Trouble Little China the other day and that film remarkably stands up.

For thanksgiving we watched ThanksKilling about a possessed killer turkey that rapes and murders co-eds. As you can tell we're using it primarily for bad taste films :)
