    The Fly. Greatest masterpiece in film period.

    It depends on what you're in the mood for. I just finished The Devil's Double which was awesome. Based on the true events of an Iraqi Lieutenant who's forced to be Uda Hussein's body double. It has the feel of a modern Scarface as we watch as he's pulled into a world of depravity and violence.

    If you're into series they also currently have the Twin Peaks series. Created by David Lynch the story revolves around the murder of high schooler Laura Palmer. Everyone is a suspect and everyone is... let's just say offbeat. Including the lead FBI investigator. "Damn good coffee!" Even though it's 22 years old, the show is still edgy by todays standards.

    Breaking Bad. If you like Walking Dead you'll love Breaking Bad.

    Do they still have Weeds? If so I recommend that.

    Yes they do.

    Breaking Bad
    Mad Men(haven't watched it myself but I hear it's good)
    Drive
    Family Guy
    American Dad
    Code Monkeys
    How I Met Your Mother
    Prison Break
    Burn Notice
    Law and Order:SVU

    That should be a good start.

    They have every episode of Star Trek from all 6 series. Some movies.
    Firefly
    Lost
    Alot of WWE-owned documentaries and compilations from several federations
    Futurama
    The original Twilight Zone series

    Plus tons of foreign stuff from all countries (they just added Battle Royale, should be required viewing, I'm talking to you, Cipher...)

    And thats just the streaming.

    For some reason season 4 is exempt.

    In fact a few of the TV series are suspiciously missing episodes. Miami Vice and Wings both have episodes missing as well.

    Theyre's definitely omissions. Sometimes they merge two seasons into one. The UK Shameless is in it's 8th or 9th season and the 'flix only had up to 5 last time I checked.

    I seriously found them boring.

    Of course I am from California.

    Doc has made a human centipede except he painted his white and put racing flames on the side of it.

    Well that's because of all the hype. By the time anyone saw the first one, we already knew what to expect. The second one had moments that were... surprising.

    The first movie must look like a typical Saturday night in Malibu eh? I saw a poster in the Village here in NYC for a Human Centipede night at what I assumed was a BDSM club.... nope.jpg

    My complaint is that when you strip away the shock value and grotesque parts, the story is poorly written and the directing and acting subpar.

    It's got the entertainment value of two girls, one cup. Which is to say it doesn't have any.

    It was all shock and it was meant to be.

    For a movie to be enjoyable for me it just has to do one thing well. like when people complain that the writing in Expendables was bad. I enjoyed it because big booms and what not.

    If it was all shock then crop it to under ten minutes and market it that way. Don't make me sit through 90 minutes of boredom expecting horror elements when all I'm going to get is a few minutes of AtM. (You can figure out what that is)

    Again, from a cinematic standpoint it's got no more value than a gross out video on the internet.

    You can make the same argument for countless movies, video games, book and tv shows. It depends on how you approach it. Sometimes it's nice to turn the ol' brain off and watch some squick, or 'splosions or chop-socky. What were you expecting the first time you saw 2 girls 1 cup?

    I knew exactly what to expect, something unpleasant, therefor I chose not to watch it. HC markets itself as a horror film, something it's anything but.

    So one can argue 2 girls and 1 cup is the better "film", at least it's not pretending to be something it's not.

    Yay someone else who watches UK Shameless! I had to find 6-8 online but by the time 9 started Megavideo (and most other similar sites) went under. It was a pain in the ass to find but I managed to catch up.

    Breaking Bad.

    Other than that, I watch a lot of documentaries. My favorites so far are:

    Senna
    Being Elmo
    Six Days to air: The Making of South Park
    Best Worst Movie
    Winnebago Man

    Season two ended in February or March. It will likely be up there the same week 3 starts.

    Honestly, I gave up once I hit season 9. A few episodes in and I just forgot to dl them weekly and never bothered to catch up. After Paddy left it just wasn't as good.

    Season 9 really sucked but I blame that on my favorite character having a crappy send off. And after Paddy left it started to go down hill. I remember reading rumors that they were bringing Lip and Debbie back but they haven't yet.
