...but that's like saying shit looks better after it's hardened a little.

You see, you have it all wrong there. Shit definitely looks better when it's not hardened...to a fly.  Tongue

I'm not very impressed with the Netflix interface either, but that's because I mostly run it via my 360. I do think the PS3 interface is much better but of all the device it runs on I've been most impressed with the Wii Netflix interface. Unfortunately there's no high-def on the Wii. Heck if the Wii-U version has the same interface and works as well with the Wiimote, I might just buy a Wii-U this year.
I run it with the Wiiu pad.  You get a touch interface and since it has its own screen you can look for new things to watch while something is already playing.  You can also pull what is playing onto just the pad and watch something else on the TV if need be.  If you have a cable box it also interfaces with that and you can set favorites and check listing schedules on the pad.  It's pretty cool actually, the only problem is battery is not great.

Sadly, it doesn't work with my cable box, since it's routed through my receiver.  And since everything but the Wii U powers up and controls with the universal remote, it makes the idea of juggling the clunky pad with the remote pointless.

Just a heads up. I tested Netflix (on the WiiU) with the Wii remote, or rather I tried to.  Netflix does not support the normal remotes from the Wii.

Once Upon a Time season 2 is now available.  Rough first couple episodes aside, I greatly enjoyed the first season.

Yeah, same. Wasn't sure about it at first but it got really good - even though it looked so cheap.

Also saw that the 4400 made it to Netflix. This is the one where 4400 people who went missing in the last 100 years or so all appear together after a bright light appears in the sky. And they have powers.

First three seasons are great. 4th one not so much.

especially the cliffhanger ending.  there were three books being written that supposedly would conclude the series, but only Welcome to Promise City by Greg Cox and Promises Broken by David Mack ever got released.

So Ive watched the first four episodes of Once Upon a Time season 2 and I was getting pretty worried because the first three were not very good.  Both the writing and acting seem to have taken a nose dive from season one. 

Episode 4, however, was excellent.  I hope it keeps it up.

There Will Be Blood is up now, as is Grey's Anatomy.  I think I'd rather sit through all the seasons of the latter than watch the former again...

Finished up House of Cards over the long weekend. Wasn't too sure about it after the first two episodes but after that it got me hooked pretty quick. Ended up doing a 6hr session one of the days. I didn't like the Kevin Spacey character speaking to the screen at first but then a few episodes in I was grinning each time he did it as I loved the little insights. Really looking forward to season two.

Also finished up Red Dwarf pretty recently. Started watching that based on some of the feedback here. I initially didn't get what the big deal was since I didn't find the first two seasons all that good or funny. But then it just clicked and startedlooking forward to seeing Rimmer, Lister, Kryten, but not so much Cat - unless he was Dwayne Dibbley. My wife caught parts of the show and hated it calling it "that stupid show" (usually preceded by "turn off" or "I don't want to watch"). But one night she sat down to watch an episode from season 8 with me and actually laughed a few times during it - so it kinda won her over in the end too.

I have to say season 7 and 9 were so dreadful. I almost stopped watching mid-way through S7 and almost didn't finish S9 even though it was 3 episodes long. However S8 was pretty fantastic and probably my favorite of the bunch. Found on YouTube there's gag reels from each of the seasons ("smeg ups") which are generally pretty fun to watch. And a "documentary" for S8 that was also pretty good too.  Hopefully they get S10 on Netflix. It can't be worse than 7 or 9.

I thought talking to the camera was a great gimmick. I love how he will do it in the middle of a conversation with the person sitting right there. Or when he waves to the camera during the Presidential swearing in.  icon_biggrin

I can't believe you would actually watch a full 2 seasons of a show that you didn't really enjoy and keep on going.  Talk about perseverance!

Red Dwarf seasons are 6 episodes each. And they're 24 minute shows so not a huge investment. I do like to give shows a chance, particularly when I see the show has several seasons in the bag; usually that indicates there's something to them. And there's been plenty of shows I didn't like initially that I ended up loving: Dollhouse, Legend of the Seeker, Once Upon a Time, to name a few. Red Dwarf turned out to be another one I really enjoyed once it started clicking.

I had to hit eject like one episode (i think) from the finale.  He does something so woefully extreme and out of character, I couldn't buy it anymore.  Ruined the show for me.

I thought Season 10 was a return to form, felt much more like 5/6 than 7-9.  Probably not as good as the heights of RD but on a definite upswing from where it was.

Couldn't agree more.  Season X essentially forgets the disastrous seasons before it and starts fresh.  It isn't great, but it's still a lot of fun.  Highly recommended for fans of the series!

They sponsored it for release in the states.  "Netflix Original" is just their brand; "Original" can be taken loosely.

Mo did post some clips from this.  I think it may have been in a Return of David Brent thread*.

I watched the first episode last night.  It's sadder than I was expecting.  Still funny, though.  Deeper than I would expect from Gervais.  He's made a likeable character, for once.  OTOH, as I'm watching him the phrase "never go full retard" keeps popping up in my head.  

*EDIT: It was actually in a thread for Derek

Don't know about the USA, but the Japanese film 13 Assassins just showed up on Netflix Canada. I've watched this movie twice and no doubt I'll watch it again now that it's on Netflix. If you like Samurai revenge movies you don't want to miss this one. The last half hour of this movie is unbelievable. It's directed by Takashi Miike, who IMO has become the heir apparent to Kurosawa. I really like his Hara-Kiri Death of a Samurai as well, among a number of other films.

I watched this back when I got it via disc and it's definitely worthwhile if you are into this sort of movie.

Finished watching Orange is the New Black. Its another one of the Netflix original series - this one taking place at a women's prison. It was pretty damn good and really has me looking forward to the next season - major cliff hanger at the end. The show really takes some unexpected turns as it progresses and the last few episodes has some "holy shit!" moments. The show is geared a bit towards women I'd say. Those first few episodes are something that could have come out of an R-rated Lifetime channel show. But it doesn't take long before your in to it and all the characters - which tend to have more than one layer to them.

It's worth checking out. I wasn't taken by the initial episode but I say by the end of the 3rd episode I was in for the run. And by the 10th episode I wasn't stopping until I finished the season.

Season 10, according to my phone alert.  But looking at the list, it's only the first 2/3 of the 2011 season.

The problem is that they don't put up "seasons", they put up "collections".  They're so butchered as to what makes it into the streaming queue versus what doesn't.  And it's Discover Network's fault, as the DVDs are exactly the same way.

It looks like their so-called "Super HD" is now available to everybody, regardless of ISP. 

I noticed the Super HD icon next to a bunch of my movies the other night, and if you're like me you'll want to know what that even means.  Apparently it's a a higher bit rate and better quality compression 1080p video.

Saw two films with minor recommendations:

Side Effects: This is Soderbergs last film and I think I like it more that I've had a few hours to mull it over. Its a very slow burn film. You think its going to be about one thing, then about 60 minutes in you find out its about something completely different. Kinda a neat trick. But the movie moves very slowly.

Gave Encounters: Another shakey-cam film. It's a horror film where a film crew who has a show about ghost encounters (like you see on syfi channel) film in an insane asylum where it turns out there are really ghosts. The start of it I loved since it poked a bit of fun at those silly ghost hunter shows. Then there's a nice twist that occurs when shit starts happening. This isn't breaking new ground at all for these shakey-cam films, the type of scares it has in it have been done a bunch of times in the others. But I enjoyed the setup and that twist it had in it so recommend it based on those two things.

Yeah Red Dwarf X is a lot better than 7 and 8 seasons and Back To Earth thing with just one episode that didn't really click with me in the series(Lemons)

Netflix is now offering the 3D and super HD all over now. When is the 3D content coming? The offerings are pitiful.

I haven't seen any of the items in my queue showing Super HD yet, but looking forward to the 3D content.

All I saw were very few, I think children's shows from Europe maybe? CGI. I am just hoping that my search parameters were off.

There's a bunch of of Super HD movies.  I think Avengers is Super HD.  3d is lacking, and it is all kids shows or nature films.  There's a couple of old IMAX things, and Shark Night but when I tried to watch Shark Night it seemed to be busted.  I'll have to try it again to see if it was just a weird stream or a bad encode on their side.

Don't know about the USA, but the Japanese film 13 Assassins just showed up on Netflix Canada. I've watched this movie twice and no doubt I'll watch it again now that it's on Netflix. If you like Samurai revenge movies you don't want to miss this one. The last half hour of this movie is unbelievable. It's directed by Takashi Miike, who IMO has become the heir apparent to Kurosawa. I really like his Hara-Kiri Death of a Samurai as well, among a number of other films.

Miike is OK, but comparing him to Kurosawa is just... saywhat

I wasn't crazy about 13 Assassins.  It was a decent setup, but the final battle dragged on and on and was really quite boring.  Frankly, I'd much rather just go watch Seven Samurai again.

I finally got around to watching "Cabin in the Woods" last night.  I'm kind of a wuss and don't like scary or overly gory films (I get awful nightmares), so I kept putting it off and putting it off.  I somehow managed to avoid spoilers...I knew there was a twist, but had no idea what it was.

Ended up absolutely loving it.  It struck a perfect balance between tense and funny, and the gore was so over-the-top that it didn't bother me too badly.  My favorite moments were:

Spoiler for Hiden:
1.  When the dude hit the invisible barrier on his motorcycle jump.  I had completely forgotten about the eagle flying into that grid earlier in the film, and couldn't stop laughing as he kept bouncing further and further down the wall.

2.  Unicorn disembowelment.

What a great show.

Marvel creating 4 series for Netflix with the culmination resulting in the Defenders

Probably should have started a new thread since this is coming in 2015
