@sammydog01 Yup. I had 'Flix until they took away my ability to override that “autostart” thing that makes something start playing as soon as I open Netflix. That was such a teeth-gritting irritation that I would avoid 'Flix and look for stuff elsewhere. Since I found virtually everything (other than 'Flix originals) on Hulu, I just canceled Netflix. Saves me the monthly fee and the irritation, and I can’t say I’ve really missed any of what I’ve missed!
@sammydog01@tightwad I don’t have cable. I do have a Roku that works happily with my wifi router, and more streaming services than I could ever need or want. I can pick up 15 local channels via antenna, but I rarely watch live TV. It’s easier to just stream stuff later minus the commercials.
@sammydog01 I’m one of those “between” types. If ESPN offered a stand-alone streaming service the way HBO does, I would probably subscribe at least for football and basketball seasons. But since It only comes as part of a “package” with a lot of stuff I don’t want, I’ll pass. I’m not enough of a fan to pay for a whole streaming package just to get ESPN.
I can’t pick. I watch almost anything I can get my hands on in Netflix. It is a original series, action, sci-fi, B-movie geekers paradise! I can’t believe I didn’t have it sooner. Currently, I am watching the Lemony Snicket’s series. It is just bizarre and funny enough to find it enjoyable.
But I do have a question. I just have the basic Netflix and the picture is really, really good. I am finding it hard to believe the more expensive plan is that much better.
@reclaimercube hope you like it! Honestly, I was blown away by his magic. He was funny. The whole series was really enjoyable and I hope they make more episodes. Let me know if the magic backpack episode trips you out. I don’t want to know how the tricks were done, they just made me happy.
Altered Carbon was so good. We binged it in only a couple of days. I should watch it again.
@SenorYEETZ I love it. Fair warning - it has its ups & downs. There are a few seasons in the middle where it suffers a bit, but it recovers well and despite the low points, the series as a whole is frigging brilliant (well, brilliantly stupid, at least).
Yeah, I’ve watched everything I could get my eyes on, lol.
The Out of the Park shows are live shows with scripted bits shot in & around the areas where their live tour took them.
Some of it is pretty bad and some of it is hilarious.
I think I tried to watch everything in chronological order (movies, one-off specials, Out of the Park, etc.) but you could watch all of the series and then go back and watch the additional stuff when you get the jones for more 'Boys. It’s not like there’s any concern for continuity or spoilers. I mean, there’s a bit of continuity that might cause you to miss a joke or two if you watch newer stuff before older stuff, but nothing consequential.
Looking at just Netflix original material, Sense 8, hands down. Grace and Frankie in second place. The Good Place third. The Crown and Santa Clarita Diet are runners up. If you are including all of Netflix’s content, my list would be a mile long.
