    Guys, help?! I was an average TV viewer who gave up cable completely a month or so back. I have Netflix and iMac minis connected to two TVs in the house. You name it, I can stream it or use Vuze for bit-torrents.

    So help me out -- what do you consider your must-watch TV series or movies? I can watch it all from Gay love stories with subtitles to massive disaster movies and everything in-between.

    Watching a series through Netflix is awesome!

    Six Feet Under will be my favorite of all time.

    Lost always keeps you guessing and Matthew Fox-hello!

    The Sopranos is so well acted it will blow you away.


    My friends rave about True Blood, Entourage, Weeds, and I've also heared people talk about Monk and House.

    I gave up my dish last month also to see how I would fare. I'm doing great. Between Hulu, Red Box, and Netflix there is plenty to watch. Saving myself $75 a month. Another one of my friend did this also.

    Bleach. It's an anime, available online for free. The dubbed English version plays on the Cartoon Network in Adult Swim. Sunday mornings usually at 1:30 AM or so. I fervently look forward to every episode.

    Hulu is a great source for previous past series. Also you can catch up latest series like America's Got talent, The Office, 30 Rock on nbc.com.

    It you get time try getting hold of these movies:
    1) Once
    2) Before Sunrise
    3) Before Sunset
    4) Love actually

    These are quite simple movies, without a big starcast, except last one. But they are quite realistic in portrayal and a nice watch too.

    There are a lot of good TV shows out there - but 1 show you should really catch is - "Trauma" new series on NBC - it's about Paramedics in San Francisco dealing with life & death situations everyday. It's a new series starting Sept. 28th. I am an extra in several scenes/episodes - Ep. 104 (Chinatown scene) and Ep. 105 (Halloween scene). icon_biggrin.gif

    Just started watching Dexter 2 weeks ago. Netflix has got me to the third season, and by the time Season 4 arrives, I will be caught up. I am obsessed. What a cool show, and Dexter isn't half bad to look at either!

    Lost is amazing. I cannot wait until the final season in the spring.

    Entourage is silly fun.

    Arrested Development is a really good, smart comedy. I'm looking forward to that movie as well.

    And Hung... yum icon_smile.gif

    Going to start on Weeds here pretty soon.
