What Has Netflix Found For You?

One of the great things about Netflix (we're subscribers, love it) is its ability to have it recommend shows and movies based on what you rated. We primarily watch a ton of TV shows from Netflix as we just find them more entertaining many times (and it's easier to watch in shorter chunks of time). I was talking to Owen at Mug Revolution the other day about Netflix stuff, and made me wonder what Netflix is introducing to everybody else. So here are a few that Netflix said we'd like and we certainly have.

  • Spooks: Holy crap this is a brilliantly written show that needs to hurry up and get its tenth season up and going. If you want great spy action, suspense, etc.., this is a great show for you. Just don't get too attached to any character in the show, as nobody's safe from getting killed/removed is some awful way. Netflix doesn't have all the seasons -- you'll have to find other ways to get those.
  • Hustle: We just started watching this one and have enjoyed it so far.
  • Foyle's War is one of the greatest detective dramas I've ever seen. Great show, and glad they put out a seventh series (just finished watching it last night).
  • Chuck: Never watched this show on TV as it came on during a time where we were watching something else (usually House), but I'm really enjoying this show.
  • Hamish Macbeth was an entertaining show, though the last season got a bit weird.
  • Pushing Daises: That was obviously suggested to us because we five-starred Wonderfalls and we pretty much like most of what Bryan Fuller has done.
  • The Lost Room could have easily been a much longer mini-series, but it was still quite interesting.
That's all I can think of off the top of my head. So what gems did you not know about had it not been for Netflix?
