    Figured there is a lot shows/movies on Netflix that are really too minor to start a thread over so figured we should have a general Netflix thread where we can discuss these. Especially since so much of the population subscribes to it. Also feel free to discuss what is coming soon on Netflix. Obviously major shows and movies get their own threads still.

    I'll start it off. Over the last 2 nights I watched original movies, "Like Father" and "Extinction"

    Like Father, starring Kristen Bell was actually pretty good! Easily could have seen this one make it in the theaters and one of my favorite original netflix movies to date. How 'Like Father' Became Netflix's Unexpected Hit of the Summer


    Extinction on the other hand had a great twist in it but the first portion of the movie basically was a snoozefest, very average B sci fi flick.

    Yeah but the U.S. didn't get Star Trek... :)

    Good thread to have, I can't figure out what's good on Netflix some days.

    I have the Upflix app that notifies you whenever something new comes on Netflix. I'll get a notification that twenty seven new movies have dropped, only to find that twenty three of them are Bollywood shows.:ha:

    I wish there was more 4k blockbusters added. Not just Netflix original shows.

    Oh **** American Vandal Season 2 is coming out? That show's hilarious. I actually cancelled a week ago after I heard about them putting ads in (plus I was pissed at how bad the Canadian catalogue for films has gotten) but I might resubscribe for a month to watch that and catch a few films before cancelling again.

    I will say that in fairness to Netflix, it's still better than the dog pile of **** that is Amazon Prime Canada's film section. The only decently known classic films they have are ones like My Man Godfrey or His Girl Friday that're already in the public domain. Their collection of newer films is fairly bad for the quantity too, you have some obvious recent ones that every film fan has seen like Moonlight, Manchester, Lady Bird, Nightcrawler, etc. I'm someone who's only seen like 50-70% of the top 250 from imdb or letterboxd or criticer or RYM etc but I could barely find any good movies to watch after scouring through it.....I found Training Day, A Man Called Ove, and some Susan Sarandon movie with a 7.5 on imdb and that was pretty much it.

    No because of rights issues.


    Personally just watched Paradise PD, Netflix original adult animated show, and really liked it. Crazy over the top and not politically correct at all.

    If you can get through the first 6 or so episodes, Bojack Horseman is probably the best show running right now. Seasons 2-4 were genuinely amazing.

    What is Netflix's obsession with making ****ty high-school/teen movies and TV? There's another one now (Sierra Burgess is a loser).

    Make a ****ing Manchester By The Sea type film like Amazon Prime did you have the budget stop making niche bull****.
