Here are some favorites, what I watched this week, and some new additions to the Netflix Instant family.
The Human Face This four-part BBC series is all about, well, the human face. There are episodes about the physical human face, reading facial expressions, and other really interesting stuff. John Cleese hosts it with the help of Elizabeth Hurley and it is legitimately interesting and funny. Can you dig it?
Watch if you like: Discovery Channel specials, John Cleese, learning
Pushing Daisies Such a great show that never got much of a chance before it was canceled. Super interesting to watch and very fantastical and funny. Also, Kristin Chenoweth is in it, you guys!
Watch if you like: Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, Desperate Housewives (I guess, but watch it even if you hate Desperate Housewives as I do), fantasy crime solving!
WHAT I WATCHED THIS WEEK:
I Like Killing Flies This documentary was recommended to me by Netflix so many times I had to watch it. It claimed I would give it four and a half stars, which is a pretty good recommendation. I liked it about three and a half stars worth. It’s about the owner of “Shopsin’s” in New York, a small diner with rules and regulars. The owner is a pretty interesting guy, and kind of an asshole.
Watch if you like: Vernon, Florida, other Errol Morris documentaries, documentaries about individuals.
Herb and Dorothy I didn’t actually watch this one, Jeff watched it but said he would watch it again a day or so later. It’s about an old couple who collects art and apparently they’re really cute and awesome.
Watch if you like: Who the #$&% is Jackson Pollock (and you should totally add that one to your regular queue because it’s great)
NEW TO NETFLIX INSTANT
These movies are actually good, and are available on Instant now!
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Harold and Maude (I’ve been meaning to watch it for a long time and now that it’s on Instant I don’t have an excuse)
The Land Before Time (if you’re drunk or something)
ON THE QUEUE
These movies and shows are on my list of things to watch on Instant soon.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 1
I give in! I’ve heard it recommended so many times I have to watch it now.
Friday Night Lights, Season 1 Again, I was skeptical, especially because I’m not into football or Varsity Blues but I hear this show is really great.
Grey Gardens (the original documentary) I’m intrigued and it feels like something I should see. My mom recommends watching the documentary after the miniseries with Drew Barrymore.
Again, I’m always wanting suggestions for the queue and for this blog and we’re still looking for contributors!
