Catching up

So I need some help. After a massive remodel (put on a third floor), a second kid (another girl) and a job/career change I am finally getting the theater back up and running.

The last movie I saw was either Transformers, notice I didn't put a "2" after it, or No Country for Old Men, can't seem to remember. Pretty pathetic. I also hear they are doing movies in the 3rd dimension now. Will wonders never cease.

What I need from y'all are suggestions to make my netflix subscription pay for itself. I am feeling a bit overwhelmed.

Thanks in advance everyone.

Re: Catching up

The Wife and I are currently watching a series called Spartacus Blood and Sand (note this series is rated TV-MA) there is also what they are calling a prequel season Spartacus Gods of the Arena but haven't started watching that one yet. If I were to sum up this series its like Gladiator meets Caligula.

Re: Catching up

I seem to be running out of steam with Netflix myself. I just tried out Torchwood and suffered through the first two shows in season one. It won't pass for me... terrible acting.

Next on my list is Legend of the Seeker.

I just finished up Firefly and the last season of 24.

Of course there are a lot of good TV shows out there that can keep the Netflix queue full for at least a while, depending on what all you like.

For movies... there have been quite a few since your last ones, so no doubt you got plenty to choose from.

A couple of favorites for me were Inception and Taken... but there are many others.

Re: Catching up

Legend of the Seeker was a decent series unfortunately it only lasted three seasons. Another good show that I caught up on myself Bones man I love that show. Sonnie your a better man than me, I couldn't sit through an entire episode of Torchwood.

Re: Catching up

I only watched these two because I had nothing else to watch. It was indeed rough.

Re: Catching up

Legend of the Seeker... too bad this television adaption strayed so far from the author's vision; otherwise it might still be in production (my opinion).
OTOH, it was a pretty entertaining show much like Xena though quite a bit darker, sadistic and violent. At times it really surprised me that it was produced by Disney.

A few others worth catching up with on Netflix;
Dexter
Weeds
Rescue Me
The Shield

Next up for me? Rome...or Sons of Anarchy
