    Indeed, Parks&Rec has been getting better and better. I'm midway through season 5 now, trying to slow down since the most recent season isn't on there yet.

    I also watched Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood recently. Wow. Fucking brilliant stuff. The last few episodes are missing unfortunately, but they are available to download elsewhere.

    Currently watching Twin Peaks, Supernatural, Buffy and Leverage. (I have mediahint installed so I watch US Netflix most of the time)

    Agree on parks and recreation. Always sunny in Philadelphia
    Is brilliant if you like dark humour. Charlie Kelly is a magnificent character
    ...took me a while to get it but have watched all episodes several times. Wilfred is good if you like speaking rude dog things. The imaginarium of dr Patnasas is fantastic. Upside down is good visually. I have a soft spot for californication as we'llwe'll

    My kids want to know when films currently on at the cinema are going to appear on Netflix. They're not interested in a long description of the legal complications of production company licensing agreements, so I've found this site showing the dates they're adding stuff, as well as the most popular stuff:

    Any more like this or better?

    I've been watching Lie to me recently, the first series is alright, it gets a lot better about halfway through the second series though. Watched a documentary about micro expressions and was pleasantly surprised that a lot of the science in Lie to me actually stands up. Made it a lot more enjoyable to watch.

    Other than that, Firefly is fantastic, I've watched the first ep of house of cards and will probably continue with it when I have time.

    Ha :D
    I did start watching it with Badgers. He really didn't like it but I thought as you, it was awful but quite watchable.
    I completely forgot about it.
    Will have a look again later :)

    if its just through a browser it should be as simple as paying for a VPN service or something like mediahint
  15. also just watched Safety Not Guaranteed on US Netflix, strange film about time travel but not really, ticks all the indie cliche boxes but enjoyable waste of a wet Sunday afternoon

    Finished it yesterday, really enjoyed it. It's not funny hahaha but it's well observed, like a good Hollywood satire should be. And it can be quite dark too.

    Once I'm done with Battlestar Galactica (which is superb!) I want to take a break from TV, have hardly done any reading since we got Netflix :mad:

    Damages was pretty decent, that was one discovered through browsing, I just randomly watched one episode and ended up watching the whole thing. It got a bit repetitive, so could have been one series shorter.

    We've just started watching this, great stuff!

    I was recommended this the other day. Been re-watching The Shield recently (also recommended), so might have a break and try this for a while.
