A lot of people are enjoying the other Netflix thread I started so I figure I'll post up some of the things I've been watching since I got the service that other people may enjoy. Some of these shows really surprised me at how good they are.
I Shouldn't Be Alive
This is a show about people put into extreme circumstances and many of them coming within hours of death. I just watched an episode about a guy that was adrift at sea in a life raft for 76 days, it was insane. I can't recommend this show enough.
I Almost Got Away With It
A show about people that committed terrible crimes like murder and went on the run from the law. Most of them went to Mexico, many of them went to another state. One guy was on the run for 28 years before they caught him.
A show about life inside some famous US prisons like San Quentin and how the inmates live day to day. Many of the episodes are on things like how to make weapons, how people live in segregation, the execution chamber (Holman) and gay relations.
This is a Morgan Spurlock show, the guy that made Supersize Me. It's about people taken out of their tunnel view lives and put into a world the total opposite of their views. The ones I've seen so far include:
- himself as a rich man trying to survive on the minimum wage system
- an overweight guy trying to use every diet enhancing drug and system available to man
- a faithful Christian living in Dearborn Michigan, Muslim capital of America
- an all-American army guy living in the Castro district of San Francisco
The show revolves around these various people as they live these different lives for a total of 30 days and what they learn from seeing the other side.
Post some of the shows you think are great but people may not be aware of. Of course there are a lot of great well known shows on there but I'm sure people are already aware of those.
Once again, some of these may only be available on the USA version of Netflix which can be set up in Canada by following the details in the other thread.

Jesus man, I know you like Transformers, but you need to get out more. No one should get this upset over a movie based on children's toys.
