I recently watched both seasons of Jeremiah, which I really enjoyed.

I recently signed up for Netflix, all jazzed up on the concept of streaming movies from a giant library. Needless to say, I was disappointed. This thread is a good idea.

Gray Gardens, the original documentary. Got it on accident and fell in love with the weird. If you like documentaries at all, this is a good one to check out. It will make you feel sad, and also blissfully normal.

yeah there's a lot of shitty shit shit that sucks shit on streaming, but there's plenty of good stuff. unfortunately the really good stuff gets pulled every once in a while. feedfliks is a good site for keeping track of what is coming into and going out of the streaming bucket.

The Showtime original series are all great, though each will also require you to commit some of your DVDs to complete.

Californication (1 season streaming, 1 on DVD)
Dexter (2 seasons streaming, 1 on DVD)
Weeds (2 seasons streaming, 3 on DVD)

My girlfriend and I have been plowing through these, and are through Dexter, and currently mid-season one on Californication and through Season 3 of Weeds, which was admittedly a downturn from the first two.

Also, just in general, scan the documentaries section, because there are some good ones. Off the top of my head:

The King of Kong (on a guy trying to break the Donkey Kong record)
Word Wars

The King of Kong (on a guy trying to break the Donkey Kong record)

We watched this the other week, then one of my friends decided to dedicate his two week break from work trying to break the record himself. He failed, and wasted his two week break. Good film though, the politics at play in Donkey Kong record-keeping is impressive/pathetic.

The entirety of Lost, minus the current season. This was the only way I was ever going to get caught up, being as I originally gave up after the first commercial break of the first episode.

Also News Radio, and The Tick(the live-action version.)

if you want to watch old great movies by master directors, the Instant Queue has all kinds of shit for you. woph mentioned Seventh Seal but there's also lots of great Kurosawa (Seven Samurai, Rashomon, Yojimbo) and Fellini (8 1/2, La Strada).

there are also a few really good (or at least interesting) documentaries on there: America The Beautiful, Tyson, and Bigger Stronger Faster* are the ones I've watched lately and would recommend.

A really good documentary I never would have seen otherwise is Very Young Girls, about sex trafficking in NYC, and a woman-a former sex worker- who set up an organization to help girls get out of the business- getting them ID, apartments, jobs, and therapy.  It's really moving and, I'm guessing, not the usual fare of this crowd.  That's probably even more reason to check it out.

Dead Snow.

I just watched this for the first time earlier tonight, and absolutely loved every Nazi-zombie minute.  It is a way campy flick, and the first half is somewhat slow, but the last 45 or 50 minutes (it is only a 90 minute film) are fist-pumpingly awesome.

The King of Kong

Their hero is just the saddest thing ever, with his American flag tie and barbecue sauce empire.

My suggestions:

The Dream Team
Memento
The Count of Monte Cristo
Cosmos:  The Complete Collection (Sagan)
Almost Heroes
Desperado
Amadeus
And of course, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome

Word Wars

I just watched it tonight, and it was amazing. Marlon, the pot smoking black scrabble playing mofo was by far my favorite, but they were all characters. Interesting, watchable ones.

Awesome film overall. One of the most interesting and entertaining documentaries I've ever watched.
Watch it. Do it. DO IT.
