Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

Only tangentially related, but does anyone have one of the LG lcd tvs that let you stream netflix right to the tv? I really like the idea and want to get one of these, but I've heard mixed things on how well it works..

My friend has one and it lags like crazy and he has his business T1 line running into it, with prices down on the PS3 and Xbox 360, it might be worth it for non gamers.

If you haven't already, you gotta watch The Grand if you love stupid comedies and poker.

FWIW if it's a single T1 that's only about 1.5 megabits, less than many cable/DSL plans and half the recommended minimum from Netflix.

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

Cosmos - PBS mini-series hosted by Carl Sagan about the universe, evolution, scientific history, and more. Awe-inspiring in its ability to explain the accomplishments of humanity, the vastness of the universe, and the cosmological time scale in a way that is easy to understand. This is one of those shows that should be required viewing for all high school students.

Planet B-Boy - Break dancing documentary that follows 5 teams as they prepare and compete in the largest B-Boy (break dancing) competition in the world, Battle of the Year. Some very open and honest interviews with likable personalities who seem to really love what they do. And spectacular eye candy during the dance scenes.

HOly crap MYST3k!!!!!!????


I'm sooooo watching that next time I smoke.

Also, I didn't read through replies after the first page, but there are a lot of great documentaries I would have never watched otherwise.

I just watched "I.O.U.S.A" about the debt crisis and debt in general, I definitely recommend it.

I really enjoyed King of Kong. Man on Wire kinda disappointed both my wife and I.
King of Kong was the best documentary I have ever seen.

Billy Mitchell is a legend.

Are there any really excellent TV shows on Watch Instantly that have the full run, i.e., no longer airing?

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

ddubois,
You have some really good things on that list. I'm about to start Battlestar Galactica too. 88 Minutes wasn't anything special, other people said it was very bad. Letters from Iwo Jima couldn't hold my attention. Other than that, the list looks solid from what I have seen.

Hulu has Firefly and News Radio. Hulu apparently doesn't have the last season of Arrested Developement anymore and only has the first 3 season of Buffy. Netflix has all of the British Office.Only other shows I watch on Netflix are 30 Rock and US Office and I just stay a stay a season behind.

I recommend everyone with firefox gets the movie ratings extension. You can right click movies on netflix and get their rotten tomatoes rating quickly.

There's tons of hidden gems in the watch instantly, you just gotta check the rotten tomato ratings. A bunch of the best movies I've seen were foreign films that I hadn't heard of before.

Re: Netflix "Watch Instantly"

i dont have netflix, so this is probably a stupid question, but how does the queue work for "watch instantly"? i understand how it works for the mail service, you have the queue and as the movies become available they'll ship them to you (not in any order, right?), but why can't you just watch whatever movie you want with "watch instantly"? why do you need a queue for that?
