Even if the execution never quite reaches the level of the premise, I really enjoyed Mystery Team.

I tried to stream this yesterday, but my streaming was all screwed up.

Re: NetFlix "Watch Now / Watch Instantly" - Recommendations Thread

Last night, I streamed Killer's Kiss (a 50s film noir directed by Kubrick) and then Persona (a 60s mindfuck directed by Bergman). The former was average, I thought, but the latter was great. There were some editing choices that I felt bordered on being outright gimmicky, rather than artistic, but the drama was visceral and the performances by Bibi Andersson and Liv Ullman were astounding. If you enjoyed Black Swan (and aren't the kind of person who refuses to watch subtitled foreign pictures), I think there's a high probability that you, too, will dig Persona.

Ridiculous amount of stuff expiring on April 1

I just powered thru all of Arrested Development since that is supposed to be going away.
Of course, sometimes shows don't actually go away but I wasn't going to take any chances with that one.

I'm not sure you can anymore. Netflix has made it so that a lot of shows have all the seasons combined into one long listing...

Thanks! It's like someone created a meth-like TV show because I'm now addicted.

(All in HD too. Nice!)

All 6 seasons of The Wonder Years have been posted. It was noted in another thread that some music has been replaced though. There are a few new NBC shows from last season that are in there too like The Event and The Cape.

The Ernie Kovacs Collection was one of the stealth additions in the past few days (it didn't pop up on InstantWatcher, anyway). It's a fairly comprehensive overview of the far-too-short television career of one of the first comedians who truly exploited the technical possibilities in the new medium.

The entire season of "Malcom in the Middle" is up which is nice since I don't think they ever made it past Season 1 on dvd. And "Deep Space Nine" finally has joined all the other Trek series that have been on for awhile.

It's about damn time! I was wondering what was up with DS9 missing here yet being available on Amazon's Instant Video streaming.

Trollhunter is available now.

Given all the buzz, I'm looking forward to finally seeing this!

I missed that this one has been available since August, but "13 Assassins" is on Watch Instantly (and in HD too). It's a very well-made samurai movie directed (more conventionally than usual) by Takashi Miike.

It's highly rated by most reviewers too:

4.5 stars on NetFlix

95% on Rotten Tomatoes

7.8/10.0 on IMDB

Kevin Smith's self-distributed new movie "Red State" is available on Watch Instantly.

As to whether it's a Horror Movie or a Thriller, check it out and decide.

I quite enjoyed it, probably the best found-footage film I've seen.

Thanks for the reminder, streaming now.

Certainly cheaper than the $60/ticket (or whatever it was) that Smith was demanding to see this in the theater.

Terriers was just added. I've never seen it before, but a lot of people in the TV Talk forum seemed to really like it, so I'll give it a shot.
