Just recently got through:

Parks & Recreation - Season 1 and 2 are up and I really enjoyed it. Very similar show to the office. Amy Poehler and Aziz Ansari are pretty good in it.

Louie - Solid show, short little vignettes about Louis C.K. and his life in NY with little bits of his standup in between.

Currently going through:

Party Down - Great cast. Short-live series that was on Starz about a group of Hollywood has beens/never will bes that work for a catering company.

Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern - Interesting show. Andrew Zimmern is pretty corny but the content is good.

No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain - Really cool show. Bourdain is a bit of a douchebag but he's funny and generally takes the road less traveled wherever he goes. He's witty and sarcastic and it makes for great TV.

Stuff I plan on checking out:

Firefly
Dexter
Weeds
Might or might not give 30 Rock another chance

If you haven't already checked these out, do it:
King of the Hill
Arrested Development
The Office
Chapelle's Show
Reno 911
Futurama
etc.

I don't really watch movies as much on there, but I have recently watched:
Exit Through the Gift Shop
I'm Still Here
Restrepo

The next movie I plan on watching is Insomnia.

They just recently put up Season 1 and 2. Missed it the first go around and was pretty stoked to see it back up. The first season only has episodes 1-5 so I'm having to watched the rest of it only from the first season, pretty stupid. Really good show.

wish they'd put curb your enthusiasm and newer seasons of californication on there.
Been wanting to watch Curb Your Enthusiasm as well. Probably check it out via the internet one day. Was always wondering why they didn't have It's Always Sunny on there either considering all of the Fox/FX shows they have up. Got those on DVD now so it's all good.

i've been listening to chavis and bama yap about sunny for four years, so i went and bought the first three seasons. bought the fourth season last week, cant get enough of it.

another good instant is rescue me. i didnt think i'd like it, but it's hilarious, and leary blew my mind. i think they still have all the seasons up.

It's worth the cost of netflix just to go through the old episodes of top gear.

Yes it is. My favorite episode is still the one where the guys buy cars for under $1000 in Miami and drive them to New Orleans. I'm pretty sure it's season 9 episode 3.

Finished going through Party Down, that was a damn good show. Shame it was canceled, but I guess it's for the best considering they were losing Adam Scott. Good finale for the show at least.

Episodes 6-10 from season 1 will be up on Jan. 28 as well which will complete the series on Netflix.

I never watched Lost before because I hate jumping into a series after it started

I recently got Netflix and now I am a few episodes into season 2

cool. what about streaming? I know it can be done on the iphone, just wondering about droid.
Netflix announced an app for streaming is in the works but it isn't ready yet. I'm wondering if there wil be a charge for that app, I have a Slingbox and the mobile app is $29.99.
