Got Netflix?

7 posts in this topic

We're still in our one month free trial and I'm looking for some different series and movies and sometimes it seems like its a bit of a pain to find something thats decent. We've been filling out the ratings and that is helping.. but then I came across this little link:

maybe it will help others get a start as well. :P

btw, if you have netflix what are the three most recent series/movies you've watched?

I wanna get NetFlix just to watch BSG in HD *salivates*


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

Three most recent series/movies I've watched: Grownups, Dead Like Me (the fifth time going through the entire series), and Escape from New York (not as good as I was led to believe it was).

Been a member for two years, it's got its ups and downs. 90% of what I watch is via instant queue, I keep forgetting you get DVDs also (last batch I had I had for close to a year before I sent them in two weeks ago).

what about bob?

independence day

the ghost and the darkness

you should know they ship your dvds slowly after your first month is up. sometimes they wait two..three days until they respond to your next dvd

and you have to wait for awhile for newly reased movies so that's another downside so if you already download new/old movies from online for free i think it's pointless. but it also has its good side like for instance if you are craving for winona ryder movies, you can search movies through actors/actresses easily and find related videos underneath and suggestion tag/reviews etc.

If something's important, just say so without yelling at me. Or fly over to it and change color like you usually do. Just because I'm busy mowing the lawn and hoping I'll find some spare change, doesn't mean I can't hear you." - Link

We've been watching a show called "Jeremiah" it has Luke Perry in it. :P The show is actually pretty decent so far. A huge plague called the big death wiped out most of humanity and the show takes place 15 years later.

      The season finale just ended this past monday. I started this series and gave it a couple eps. I almost dropped it, but by the third ep shit started going down and I got sucked into the plot. This was a surprisingly great series with excellent acting. Its so refreshing to see a 1 off series like this. I don't think there is going to be a season 2 and if there is it would probably ruin the experience. This played out like an anime in a sense. It started and finished the entire plot. There was no filler episodes and everything tied in together. I hope this inspires AMC to make more stand alone short series. Hell, I wish more of america tv would follow this direction instead of endless reality shows or drawing out a series so long that it gets canceled without a finale. This show proves its possible for US tv to actually give us a story in a complete season. Well done AMC.  I can only compare this to Stephen King mini series, except better. Now I wish all those old Stephen King mini series were actually given the full season treatment like this.

      This is without a doubt the best thing I have seen on tv this entire year. 4 series in a massive justice league / captain America civil war style plot spanning 4 episodes and it was amazing. I really hope they make another crossover special next year. Superheroes versus the ultimate Nazis. The episodes are online if anyone wants to watch:

      I've gotten annoyed with managing my digital movie and tv series collection. It didn't bother me before because Netflix had pretty much everything. I'd never have to search for stuff on my hard drives or old dvd-rs because it would all be on Netflix. Now that Netflix has dropped about 50% of their content over the last couple years and will lose significantly more once all of Disney's properties are removed next year I've realized all my old dvds, blu rays and digital movies are all getting more use again. This is were plex comes in.
      I setup plex on my main pc, moved a bunch of movies and tv series into some folders and set plex to use those folders. This program auto grabbed all meta data for the content, images, etc and is basically a Netflix clone. I was shocked by how efficient this is. I installed the plex client app on my ps3, ps4 and roku stick and as long as my pc with the plex server is running I can now stream all my content to every tv in the house. It even keeps track of where i left off in a movie and i can resume it on a different device if I want.
      So I bought a 4tb hard drive yesterday and I'm going all in on this. I'm going to rip a bunch of my dvds and blu rays (the ones that don't have a digital copy) into mkv files and throw them on that hard drive for my plex. I'll try putting my old anime avi files (with hard coded subs from back in the old download days) in there to to see if plex can play those too.  Plex will even organise by genre to so it all works good. And plex is free.
      I was thinking about buying a nvidia shield because it can be used as a plex media server instead of just a client like the PlayStation/roku apps but it looks like it has some limitations with file types and my old anime files would definitely not play on it unless i converted every file thru some program called handbrake. I'll look into that some more.
      I figured I'd share this in case anyone else was getting annoyed with Netflix and every company making their own Netflix clones. Instead of paying every company a piece of the pie it'll be cheaper in the long run to just make my own Netflix with the content i already own that is already tailored to my preferances. And plex can stream outside of your home in 720p if you go on a road trip. I doubt I'll ever use that feature tho, especially with upload rates being shit with spectrum.
      Go to https://www.plex.tv to get the media server and the PlayStation/xbox store/roku/android to download the plex app. I know this topic seems like am advertisement but they're paying me nothing and it's all free downloads anyway. it just works and works great.

      We'll have to wait until 2018 for the new anime series.
