3 Shows I started watching on netflix

Steaming movies and TV shows on netflix is awesome and you can find some real gems. Here are three shows I’d never watched until I found them on netflix streaming.

 

FireFly

From netflix “Set almost 500 years in the future, this short-lived but much-loved TV series follows the adventures of the ragtag crew (including Nathan Fillion, Gina Torres and Alan Tudyk) of the transport spaceship Serenity, who view no job as too small, too dirty or too close to the line of illegality. When a passenger is wanted by the ruling Alliance regime, the Firefly must hide out in the dangerous fringes of space.”

I’d heard so much about this series, I’d seen the movie when it came out on DVD and I wasn’t impressed. But I’d heard the TV series was much better than the movie. So I gave it a go, and really enjoyed the series. The last two episodes were not the best, but the series is general was very good and I could see why people were surprised and disappointed the series was cancelled. I love the opening music to this show, wonder if its available to download.

 

The Guild

From Netflix “Fantasy and reality collide in this engaging Internet series that follows a quirky group of gamers, including Codex (Felicia Day) and Zaboo (Sandeep Parikh), as they struggle to balance real-world relationships with their commitments to playing an addictive online video game. Bound in a tight-knit guild dubbed the Knights of Good, these hopeless geeks confront stiff challenges from controlling mothers, rival factions and, at times, each other.”

I don’t remember who I found this little treasure, but its great. If you are into social media or online gaming you must check out this show. I just found out there is a season 4 now available. I’ll be watching that this weekend!

 

Dexter

From Netflix “Mild-mannered Dexter Morgan (Golden Globe winner Michael C. Hall) works for the Miami Metro Police Department as a blood-splatter analyst — and moonlights as a murderer who only targets other killers, a moral code instilled in him by his adoptive father, Harry (James Remar). As Dexter channels his sociopathic urges into acts of vigilantism, his co-workers, friends and family remain blissfully unaware of his bloodthirsty alter ego.”

Both my wife and I enjoy CSI and criminal mind TV series, when I heard the premise of this show I had to check it out on netflix streaming. The writing on the show is great, when else to you root for the serial killer? Only the first two seasons are available for streaming. Season three and four are available on DVD and we are still waiting for season five to become available on DVD.

      The end of season 4 was a shocker. I was totally not expecting that.
      Can’t wait for season five on DVD.

    ……Recently Netflix made a bold by acquiring rights to a television series called House of Cards. By buying rights to this show Netflix avoids having to purchase streaming rights from a pay TV channel. This sent shock waves through the television entertainment industry because Netflix made a move that represents a potential threat to this business. Well the industry has responded and one by one pay TV channels are limiting their relationship with Netflix to maintain their own viewership..After the announcement about House of Cards Showtime responded by renegotiating their contract with Netflix. The new contract which goes into effect in a few months prevents Netflix from offering their subscribers streaming access to shows that are now on air. Original programming like Californication and Dexter will no longer be available to Netflix subscribers at all. To watch these shows online viewers will have no choice but to subscribe to Showtime s streaming service. The only Showtime original programming that will remain available on Netflix are the series that have already been cancelled..This week another pay TV channel has made it clear that they will not stand by as Netflix aims to reduce their revenue and continue to emerge as a competitor. Starz is distancing itself from Netflix as well. Netflix used to be able to stream new episodes of original series as they aired on Starz. As early as next month Netflix won t be able to stream any new episodes from original programming for ninety days after the debut. This restructuring will also have an effect on movies as well..These changes will drastically influence Netflix subscriber numbers because this is what enticed many to join in the first place. If Netflix becomes somewhat of a final resting place for shows and movies rather than the go-to spot for current entertainment profitability will be affected. The issue isn t so much that these channels view Netflix as competition right now. They just visualize the potential for this to happen particularly after the purchase of House of Cards . This sent the signal that Netflix wanted to become just as relevant as a pay TV channel like HBO Starz and Showtime. Now these channels are scrambling to hinder Netflix in any way that they can while still maintaining a profitable relationship..These contractual changes will surely force Netflix to take a step back and analyze the possible outcomes of become a full fledged pay TV competitor. Netflix will have to weigh how much their actions could trigger other actions that could eventually stifle their business. Most of the weighing will have to be speculative as the pay TV channels are only getting started with reestablishing their relationship with Netflix. There is no telling how extreme this could become or which other pay TV channels will want to make a change in regards to their Netflix agreement..If Netflix is smart they will halt their quest for domination and regroup before any more damage can be done. Netflix should encroach in a more subtle way that won t alarm the traditional entertainment industry..
