So, I got Netflix today. Looking for some suggestions. My favorite shows are things like Southland, Suits, Big Bang Theory, etc.

I already plan on giving Breaking Bad a shot, and I'm open for suggestions. Fire away. Movies are welcome too.

Netflix is how Dr. Who got its hooks into me. Badly.

It's a very odd show, but if you can tolerate musicals at all watch Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog. It entertained me for 40 minutes.

Haven't met anyone who didn't enjoy breaking bad.

Hell on Wheels is pretty good.

One of the best ones out of all of the modern episodes.

You've seen Angels take manhattan? Wasn't as good, but the cherub blowing out the match was right up there with 'creepy-ass angels moments'

Can't use Netflix where I live anymore, my DSL just doesn't want to function with it.
 
When I used it I generally watched old movies that would pop up from time to time and occasional TV shows. I watched Arrested Development from start to finish in a few days, but not too much.
 
They had Blade Runner on there for a while, and a mass ton of indie movies. I found their collection kind of dry though, especially if you were looking for big name classics. They go in and out of a good selection though.

Not necessarily what you're looking for, but for me, the big ones are Top Gear, Lie to Me, and Workaholics.

I love Archer and Workaholics, they'll definitely be getting some views. I've seen some of the league and liked it, so I'll go through and catch up on it. And I'll probably cherry pick through Top Gear.

Is Dr. Who something I need to start from the beginning?

You'd better hope not, because it's been around since 1963, and that'd be a LOT of episodes you'd have to watch.

The reality is that you need a one-off episode to get hooked in. "Blink" is probably the best of those episodes. It actually doesn't contain much of The Doctor or his companion (I think it's Martha Jones at that point) but helps ease you into a series pretty well by explaining what's up with the blue phone box, etc.

If you watch it and like it, you have two choices. You can either go back to the beginning of the David Tennant era as he's the same actor/Doctor as you see in "Blink" but you'll miss out on the back-story of Rose Tyler if you do that.

The other (better IMHO) option is to go back to the beginning of the "New" series with Christopher Eccleston and start there. He's only The Doctor for one season and then it changes to Tennant who is, by far, the BEST DOCTOR EVER!

Just remember, time doesn't flow in a straight line, it's made up of wimbly-wobbly timey-wimey... stuff.....

Netflix recently got half (They may have all of them by now?) of ESPN's 30-for-30 series, almost all of which are utterly fantastic.

Internet machoism aside, Dr. Horrible is wonderful and you should be watching it now.

Other similar picks: Firefly, How I met your mother.

Breaking Bad is still one of my favorite shows ever.

Wife and I are making our way through Walking Dead. I'm embarrassed to say I catch her watching Dawons Creek far too often.

Foreign movies. The girl w the dragon tattoo series, there was a whole bunch of war movies about ww2 in russian, and I think finnish or norwegien that were good.
