I know not all of our readers have Netflix account, but for those who do...
Since upgrading my cable modem last April, I have been a Netflix fiend, mostly watching on my big screen through the Playstation 3. I'll spare you the comprehensive list, but I've caught up on the first five seasons of, at least a few seasons of Law & Order: , a couple of seasons of Monk, and the entire series of Veronica Mars. I've watched a slew of movies and a ton of documentary/PBS type stuff.
Recently I blew through the first season of Arrested Development in about three days. Loved it! Biggest surprise: Ron Howard is the best. narrator. ever.
I've also been working through The X-Files. I watched all of the first two seasons, but then switched to the mode of only watching episodes that have 8 stars or more on IMDB. At least through the first six seasons, that covers all of the mythology arcs. It has grown on me. Biggest surprises: kind of fun to see Bryan Cranston guest-starring in an episode written by Vince Gilligan, But the biggest surprise of all was seeing Richard Belzer turn up on The X-Files as a 1980s* Baltimore "Homicide: Life on the Streets" Detective John Munch, including some tinfoil hat smack talk, no less!
*Yes, I know it was an episode from the 1990s, but the story for that episode took place in the late 1980s.
