    No love for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt? Far out comedy that was initially made for NBC, but since they didn't pick it up (and after a whole season was made), Netflix bought it. It's over-the-top comedy, but Ellie Kemper is gold. Amazing comedic timing, she sort of came out of no where.

    Frances Ha is a delight. A Woody Allen sort of vibe. Beautiful cinematography.

    Short Term 12. Excellent. A woman working at a group home who has demons of her own. Incredibly well-acted.

    Finally finished Spotless. really enjoyed the show and hope they get season two out soon.

    If you have not watched it it is a franco/british show set in london with one Brother who is a cleaner. He cleans up crime scenes and his estranged brother comes to town and gets them involved with a British gangster and his crazy brother. Pretty good show IMO.

    When I did have Netflix I watched the brain dead stuff, family guy,futurama, and a lot of the trailer park boys,nothing riveting or serious but caught some pretty good movies also that I'd never have went to the theater to go see or rented ,,,,

    Watch I "No Longer Feel at Home in This World."

    It has Elijah Wood, and is pretty funny.

    Sounds like something I would want to see...

    OA was watchable but yea, calling it a Stranger Things type show was insane. Two different worlds.
    I am not sure if I'd watch a season 2 of OA as it did at times feel like a chore to get to the end.

    various and most or all mentioned previously:

    luke cage: cheesy but watchable. very like jessica jones. didn;t carry well throughout the season and was predictable.
    stranger things: gold.
    OA: watchable with some cool moments but some episodes were almost painful and ending was blah. i'd have to be bored to watch a season 2.
    love: not a bad rom com style show. characters are well developed and believable. very California vibe. easy to watch.
    hell on wheels: loved season 1 before netflix but it did grow mundane to me. might have been better as a single movie
    longmire: also watched it before netflix.it was good as well early but lost out to more interesting shows. might eventually go finish it off on netflix.

    HBO--
    Insecure: very interesting story line. like weird reality tv take on a rom com.
    Westworld: I didn't think this was as good as advertised but it was very watchable.

    I've always been too cheap to go for netflix(I still watch a tv I bought at a thrift store 10 years ago for $12), is it all it's cracked up to be? I finally have some funds I can use on stuff like that, among other things..

    I enjoy it.

    Good thing is if you don't like it...after buying a card (you get a $30 card which covers three months plus you normally get at least one month free). So for $30 you should get around 4 months and if you don't like it...don't get another card. I buy the netflix cards so there is no way they can charge you over that.

    I am not sure how much it would cost you to get a roku, chromecast or one of the other methods to work on your TV. Although you could do it on most phones, tablets and computers without buying anything extra.

    Personally I use it quite a bit. There are thousands of tv shows and movies on there and they add and delete movies every month.
    Keep in mind this is not HBO so you are not getting the newest theater movies as they hit DVD status although you might get a few.

    You could also see if there is someone near you that has it on their computer or phone and ask them to look through the listings of shows and movies just to get an idea.

    I will say this...some of their exclusive shows are just as good, if not better than some of the current shows on TV. I have found their Marvel shows are MUCH better than the DC shows they have on CW.

    thanks , I think I'm going to give it a try :) got a tablet, labtop and I'm planning on upgrading my TV, Since I'm getting married in just over a month, sounds cool and I don't think the Wife would be too upset if I updated things a little, lol. Appreciate the opinion.
