    For those of you who get Netflix, I thought it might be a good idea to start a thread where you post movies you've watched through their instant streaming program.

    We tend to watch more TV series which Netflix seems to carry a good collection. We've not had as much luck with finding quality movies. I don't see the "prediction rating" they give very accurate.

    The show "Party Down" is up there for me. After watching both seasons I realized that they canceled the show. I didn't understand it. It has a great cast, hilarious writing and it can be as funny as it can be serious at times. It is my second favorite "canceled before its time" comedy program behind AD. Check it out.

    Will do. "Arrested Development" is in my top five. Which is also on IS for those who never watched it.

    Ive had Netflix for about a month and all Ive watched so far is Dexter. I find it to be my favorite show and play on watching all five seasons before this fall when the sixth one starts. Starting to watch the show weeds as well. Another good one

    We just got it. So far, I have watched Following directed by Christopher Nolan, El Orfanato (one of my favorites), Anastasia with the kids, and the first season of Dexter.

    I thought Following was a pretty decent flick - very film noir. I'm really digging Dexter. If you haven't seen El Orfanato (The Orphanage), put it at the top of your list.

    You may already know this but the more your rate the more accurate their predictions become. I've rated about 1300 titles and find their prediction ratings for me to be pretty decent. Of course it's still off on some stuff but it seems to be much more hit than miss.

    Yeah. I've been ranking a bunch lately and find it's getting better.
