Thread: Recommend good stuff you've seen on Netflix streaming

  1. #341
    So I didn't really enjoy the first ep of House of Cards.

    Heavily stilted dialog with clunky delivery, overwrought music that makes the super exposition-heavy plotting seem melodramatic when the stakes haven't really been established yet, annoying that Kevin Spacey talks to the camera.

    I guess I will watch another ep because the cast is stacked (plus Fincher) and I've heard such good things, but I thought that was a pretty piss-poor first ep.

    ETA: the "lick my balls" line was awesome

    Just watched Cabin in the Woods and liked it. Wasn't scary at all but rather thought provoking.

    She was the son's girlfriend for a few episodes in season 1, and was also in the first season of American Horror Story.

    Thought provoking? You want thought provoking? Watch the German film, "the silence"

    Yes, its very strong for the 2nd and 3rd seasons.

    Then it starts to tail off pretty severely.

    Great call on Orange is the New Black, loving it.

    I can't binge watch anymore, I have to only watch an ep at a time these days.

    I have an HBO doc recommendation, not sure if its on Netflix yet. It about snowboarder Kevin Pearce called "The Crash Reel." Sucked me in and never looked back.

    Really enjoying Orange is the New Black as well. The only part that I can't get past is that Yoga Jones did the voice of Patti Mayonnaise on "Doug". Every time she speaks, all I can think of is that show.

    I loved Orange Is the New Black. Just a great show and I'm actually sort of sad that I won't see any new episodes for like a year.

    I thought House of Cards was okay, but I feel like it's vastly overrated simply because of Spacey and because Fincher directed the first 2 episodes. Never got behind Spacey's asides directly into the camera. Overall, I just felt like it was a show that tried to hit all the tropes of a "prestige" TV show, but the parts didn't add up to a satisfying whole.

    Seriously. I'm glad that I finished the season before learning that.

    Just watched Dear Zachary. Pretty intense.

    British cop/crime dramas: Luther (Idris Elba), Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch), The Fall (Gillian Anderson), Prime Suspect (Helen Mirren), Hit & Miss (Chloe Sevigny), Wallander (Kenneth Branagh), etc. Even when they're not amazing, they're still well above average relative to their American counterparts. Just awesome television.
    We're going to be good again.
