    Jekyll. Contemporary, British retelling of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Complete story is told in 6, one hour, episodes. It's brilliant and one of those hidden gems that everyone should see. Netflix has the whole thing up for streaming.

    I have read there are no plans for it, but I would kill for a 2nd season of Jekyll.

    2. The wild and wonderful Whites of west Virginia - not a movie about racists. Its about a crazy ass family in West Virginia and its made by Johnny Knoxvilles company and worth a watch if your into crazy people


    DEFINITELY recommend this. I live in WV, not far from Jesco White (the best known of the White family) and this is a really interesting look at a family that is too often immediately deified or demonized. True, they may be worthy of either from time to time, but it's interesting to see a "real life" look at the family.

    My wife just got a Wii for Christmas, so I'll be looking through this thread carefully over the next few days!

    The best one I've watched on the instant streaming in a while was The Battleship Potemkin.

    Introduced several friends to Dexter and all of them are hooked. Ironically, I'm still not fully caught up on the series. I finished the first two seasons via Instant Queue, but haven't watched further than that. I share account with distant family so I don't receive the DVD's myself. [​IMG]
    Im on season 2 now ... what a great show It's up there with The Wire and Breaking Bad

    I'm surprised I haven't heard of this, since I'm really into British television, just watched a trailer and holy crap! I have it added in my instant que now.

    Steven Moffat for the win. I love his work, and this is no exception.



    Brick Neo-Noir set in a high school. Probably in my top 10 all-time movie list. It's simply great on so many levels, and not at all cheesy (unlike what one would think from the synopsis)

    I can't watch Jekyll cause I don't understand a word British people are saying, although, I thought Lock, Stock was amazing. Even if I had to watch it multiple times to understand two lines of dialogue.

    The Union is a good documentary about weed and it's unfortunate shunning. Show it to your "friends" who think weed is harmful yet binge drinks and has two dui's.

    I'm gonna watch that Jekyll, I've never heard of it, but it looks good.

    Surfwise is probably one of the greatest documentaries I've ever seen. Highly recommend it.
    I believe all seasons of Friday Night Lights is available on instant now. Best show that nobody has ever seen.
