Hiya All,
Could someone with Netflix tell me if they show old/classic cartoons? Thinking about Bugs Bunny, Heckle and Jeckle etc...
Cheers,

No, I don't see anything like that in their collection. From my experience Looney Tunes and other classic cartoons don't really have any complete collections available.

And a lot of the ones you see on TV today have been butchered for time length and to be more politically correct.

For comic book shows, I really liked Daredevil, as well as Jessica Jones (though not as much).

Peaky Blinders was pretty good if you like historical crime dramas.

Currently working through Breaking Bad, and X-Files, which was my childhood.

And of course check out Sherlock.

I want to watch the second season.


We tried watching that, but their unique idea of showing the backstories of the female inmates, in order to give the characters more depth, is kind of ruined by the fact that the male guards are completely one dimensional.

If you're a fan of Twilight Zone or The Outer Limits, you might like Black Mirror as well.

I would recommend '71 as a good film to watch. It's about a British soldier stuck behind enemy lines in Northern Ireland. Very good script, plot and cinematography.

I also re-watched "The Jackal" with Richard Gere, Sidney Pointie and Bruce Willis. What a good movie I had completely forgotten about.

Fastball

We watched this excellent documentary on Netflix last night. :thumbup: :thumbup:

Scientists and baseball greats analyze what a batter faces when a pitcher hurls a fastball, which takes less than half a second to reach home plate. Narrated by Kevin Costner.

The Big Short. I read the book years ago and the movie is pretty good...got me wondering where the next scam is being played out... you know, the next one we all get to pay for as the fat cats pay themselves massive bonuses with the cash they get from the taxpayers...

Daredevil (the series, not the Ben Affleck/Jennifer Garner movie) has great cinematography and is action packed. My son and I make it a habit to watch a few episodes together.

I watched a show called "Cooked" It was interesting, kind of the historical, feel good, documentary on the origins of cooking and family with 4 episodes - Fire, Water, Air and Earth.

Randy, I watched this a couple weeks ago. Superb! Especially if you like baseball.

Stranger Things Is GOOD. Brings back a lot of memories of those style of 80's scifi/horror films.

Reminded me of the Goonies, or Lost Boys, or Stand By Me... that kind of genre. Mixed with an X-Files vibe. I found Winona Ryder's character kind of irritating though.

Stranger Things!

I have not enjoyed a show as much as that one in a LONG time. It was something that both my wife and I enjoyed from start to finish! She generally gets bored after a few episodes of a show, but not with this one. It really reminded me of the Christopher Snow novels

What a fantastic musical score as well. I hope Netflix keeps up the original content if it is going to be as good as this!
