    Figured it was time to kick up another Netflix thread now that even more people have switched from Cable to streaming options.

    What are some good TV series and/or movies that people should add?

    Any good resources?


    Personally I use instantwatcher.com alot.

    Peep Show is one of the funniest shows I've ever seen. All seasons are streaming.

    Watch 180 Degrees South. One of the best documentaries on there. Soundtrack kicks ass too. Long story short, the guy makes his way from CA down to Patagonia, where he meets up with the founders/owners of The North Face and Patagonia Clothing.

    If you want something more disturbing, Food Inc. and The Cove are good ones too.
