Maybe we can make this an official thread if one doesn't exist...

Does anyone know of a listing of all titles available to stream that have no (or no decent) DVD/BD releases?

The only one I know of is Michael Mann's The Keep, but I'm sure there are many more.

I only got my Roku yesterday, so I'm trying to narrow down some of the choices available to me. There's just... so... much.

Movies:

Cool As Ice
The Drifter
Jar City
The Keep
Spellbinder


TV:

Better Off Ted S2
Family Ties (later seasons)
The Wonder Years

Spellbinder: Tim Daly bangs hot witch (Kelly Preston), who has evil friends.

It is technically on DVD, but it's MOD, which is expensive.

The Drifter: Horny Kim Delaney bangs hitchhiker, who she picks up, who turns out to be a psycho.

DVD is out of print.

Not a movie, but The Wonder Years is available. Also, Jeremiah season 2 was on Netflix at one point. I don't believe it's there anymore, though.

There's a foreign thriller called Jar City. Based on a bestseller crime novel from Iceland. I think the only DVD release was a Blockbuster exclusive.

If a mod wants to make it a sticky, and people contribute, I'll try to keep the OP updated.

It appears to be exclusive to Amazon streaming for now, but the entire run of NYPD Blue is there.

The Good Guys

This was one season. 20 episodes.

I would love to see Netflix go more in this direction with cancelled shows that will never make it to dvd. There are plenty of short lived series out there that I would love to go back and revisit.

I liked Jar City, uneven, but definitely worth a watch. If not just to see what you can get in a drive through in Norway.
