Recently I've been using my Netflix other then for my sons entertainment lol & thought it would be a good idea to do a thread about what people recommend.
Currently I'm watching Orange Is the New Black & I'm totally 100% hooked, every spare minute I have I watch an episode or three!
Anyone else got any good recommendations?
Hemlock Grove was a Netflix series, I quite liked it but my daughter didn't. Weeds is funny (the first few seasons at least) I think you will like it if if you like OITNB. Gilmore Girls is on Netflix now (I think just the American version though) I am a huge GG fan.
I just watched a film called Mary and max on Netflix, I wasn't convinced I wanted to watch it because it was clay animated but it's really good, I recommend giving it a watch 🙂
@Wicked I've heard Gilmore Girls is meant to be really good, I'll give Weeds ago too.
I feel like I've heard of that before @Marthakins, I'll give it a watch!
You need to get the American netflix for Gilmore Girls (which isn't strictly kosher) the American version has about 5 times as many shows.
Yeah I watch the american one. I feel naughty but at least I'm paying for Netflix.
I don't see why we shouldn't have access to all the shows just because we are in the UK, like you say we are paying for it instead of just streaming straight off the internet.
It's all down to international copyright and licencing and stuff I don't really understand! It's the same with Amazon instant and all of the services like it. I want to be able to use Hulu, but only can through 'naughty' means and definitely can't use Hulu plus without a US address. I think one day it'll even out, I think one day they'll realise they have to. They're always about 10 years behind though in the entertainment biz.
My boyfriend watches American Netflix and I'm extremely jealous! I just have the UK one at the moment.
I'm currently watching utopia on English Netflix and its really good!
Anyone use UnblockUs with Netflix? Somehow I have it for free, (I think you have to pay a few pounds extra) which means I can really easy change to any region of Netflix.
I've watched so many series I'm not gonna list them all xD
First few seasons of weeds were good, quite liked the beginning of hemlock grove (haven't got round to watching more) and a friend highly reccomended utopia. Mary and Max was lovely. At the moment I've been watching Broadchurch (the uk one, apparently there's an American version too) with David Tennant which is suprisingly good, and also Being Human. I'm going through a British series phase - It's refreshing for a change.
I will admit to nothing! Using something like unblockus isn't exactly the right thing to do as it's breaking international licensing (or something like that) laws...
I swear there was some weird loophole though, because I've been told even though you're not allowed to switch region I'm pretty sure unblock us isn't actually illegal. I could be wrong though, And I think they've starting changing laws and stuff anyway.
It might not be strictly illegal, but that's what a loophole is 🙂 it is still breaking international licences (copyrights or whatever it is) if we're watching stuff from the US or whatever other country it is (I might have watched many other countries Netflix where they have a lot of different stuff with subtitles, ignore the subtitles). The studios etc need their bit of cash for everywhere it's being shown. Which is fair enough. It's a bit more complicated than just changing laws, it's partly about who gets paid, when and how. But then add in the extra info about program's or films having agreements with different TV channels over the world with exclusivity etc, that means in the UK something is on maybe Sky or something, so it can't be on Netflix or amazon. It's way, way more complex than we can even imagine,
^ This is all true. However there is very little room in my heart to feel bad for TV companies and all their money.
