The new show, "Lilyhammer" with Steven Van Zandt (Sil in The Sopranos) sure looks good, available now only on streaming. A gangster turns informant/witness protection goes into witness relocation in Lilyhammer.

"The girl with dragon tattoo", if you don't mind reading Swedish subtitles. Then "the girl who played with fire", and lastly "the girl who kicked the hornets nest". A fine trilogy all the way.

We watch a lot of British mystery and police procedural series on Netflix--Midsomer Murders, Kingdom (with Stephen Fry), Inspector Morse... The pacing is very different from their American equivalent, but with that caveat, if you like that sort of show, you might dig these.

Luther from the BBC is one of the best copper shows on Netflix.

Highly recommend it.

DO NOT miss the Buck documentary on Showtime and streaming on Netflix. Beautiful. Ugly. Profound. Interesting. One of those things you watch and learn about yourself and each other. Horses are great creatures to watch, too.

Great! Y'all gave me some good recommendations. I'll be up most of the night more than likely, so I'll check some of them out. Right now I'm watching One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest... I've never seen it before. Pretty interesting movie.
Thats a good one Chief! <g>
"The Debt" with Helen Miren was excellent, watched recently.
We're watching "Contagion" now, also very good.

Not sure if it is on Netflix but the remake of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is a great movie while puffing away. Definitely a movie to pay attention too and better if you read the book prior.

I was looking at that one, wasn't it a tv series? I tried reading the book, but it reads horribly (or is that just me?)
The new remake looks terrific.

There was an Alec Guinness version 20 years ago. I love the book as well as others with George Smiley. This version was a movie and very detailed.

Yes, that was the television series. It is available on Netflix. I've heard it was very good.

If you don't mind reading subtitles, "Castaway On The Moon," 2009 Korean flick. If you watch it and honestly don't like it, I'll send you a tin of your favorite tobacco (within reason), Simple Man.

Not kidding.

Cool

Watched a couple of episodes of Downton Abbey on Netflix last night, highly reccomended.

I just saw this for the first time last night, watched episodes 1 and 2. Looks like only season 1 is up on Netflix, 7 episodes total. Hopefully they put season 2 up as well.

Also on Netflix is Gosford Park, which was written and controlled by the same chap who wrote and controls Downton Abbey, Julian Fellowes. Won a bunch of awards that year, but we all know that doesn't mean a whole lot anymore. I gave the movie 8/10, but it also didn't have two seasons and tens of episodes to develop and breathe. He's a master writer, no doubt about it.

Not a bad film. Not great, to me, but not bad. *shrug* The subject matter was kind of boring, but it was well-written and directed.

I myself, dont have tv other than netflix,and HULU plus, so ive been watching t v series like Stargate Atlantis, and Stargate SGI, seen em all
Then I watched the whole series of Firefly,, it was ok, but theres a gal on there that looked familiar, and it turns out shes on stargate atlantis too, anyhow, I think shes cool.
Lately I have been watching Breakout, and Nikita series. Nikita is pretty hot too, so is her sidekick.

HuluPlus seems to have way too many Korean films, not that I'm against korean stuff, hell I spent 2 years over there, but holy cow , it dominates the selection on Hulu
BUT< Hulu DOES HAVE , Saturday Night Live ,, all of them ! , and hulu has a few comedy channels, with ALL of the past episodes of stand up.

Im kinda missing Deadman Walking, that new series. I realy liked it, and Netflix only has the first season, which I have seen.

RU,

Korea is the new HK, but more self-reflective.


I am in agreement with Kyle about MOON.

Added "Rampart" to my DVD list and currently waiting on "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy". I wanted to see Tinker in the theater, but it never worked out.
