I really enjoyed History of Future Folk. It's not a perfect movie and it has it's share of flaws, but it's also got Dee Snider in a minor role and I enjoyed it quite a bit.

A Nightmare on Elm Street II
Zodiac
The first season of American Horror Story is so cheesy and great.

I'll probably watch The Ice Storm tonight.

Really cool series. Plus it's short and sweet. If you're looking for longer features, I've been watching lots of 30 for 30 and MST3K.

One of my favorite shows. It's so good. The Fall with Gillian Anderson was also interesting albeit short.

if you don't mind a epic long documentary there is a 4 hour one on the nightmare on elm street films, they show rare footage and behind the scene photos. not to mention extensive interviews from EVERYONE involved in the films, some of them go pretty deep with the imagination of freddy. I likedit a lot

It's not on Netflix but I cannot say enough good things about Orphan Black. Two seasons so far, with the last episode last Sunday, and it's better than anything I've seen not named Madmen or Breaking Bad for the past year.

Has anyone watched "the inbetweeners"?

Haven't seen it mentioned, but it's pretty fucking funny.

Also, I never watch the British version of the office,shunned it, because I thought the people who liked it were basically just being snobs and thinking they're sense of comedy was sharper than everyone else.

Finally watched it, and loved it!

warning season 2 is awful but stick with it because they right the ship and it is was just a season long hiccup. Also keep your eyes open for the floating kill your idols poster that shows up in like 4 different rooms.

Top Of The Lake was great! Watched it in one sitting. Salamander started off with a lot of momentum but kind of slowed down. I still have a couple more episodes to go though so maybe it'll finish strong.

I just added The Hunt to my queue, anyone seen it?

I've heard good things.



Edit: Also, Rectify is a good little gem, definitely check it out if you haven't. they're only two episodes into season 2 so it'll be pretty easy to catch up.

They really nail that small southern town mindset.

Just started Rectify and first episode was pretty legit. Other shows I have enjoyed over the past few months:

-The Fall
-Suits
-Continuum
-The 100 (not great, but entertaining a few episodes in)
-Halo (four 30 minute shows; essentially a movie)

This has been out for a while, but they just added City Of God to netflix instant, so if you haven't seen that... man, sign off B9 now and go watch, it's a super good movie.

You should watch Derek. They just put up season 2 like last month.

Peep Show also rules. Probably the best show on Netflix now that King of the Hill is gone.

Another vote for City of God. City of Men, too, even though it comes nowhere close to the former.
