GH and I just re-upped our subscription to Netflix (actually, Blockbuster.com, but same difference). We usually get all of our videos from the library, but getting out to pick things up off reserve is going to become more difficult. I've heard that watching videos is a good way to pass the breastfeeding time, so we figured the Blockbuster subscription would be money well spent.
I'm not much of a TV watcher. The only shows I watch regularly are 24 and Lost. I do love to go to the movies, but I feel woefully out of date on what's come out recently (and by recently I mean for the past year or so). Other than big blockbusters and Academy Award nominees, a lot of movies have passed me by.
So I'm looking for recommendations. What movies and TV shows have you enjoyed lately, or ever? My tastes are pretty eclectic. For movies, I love everything from independent and foreign films to a good action movie or thriller every once in a while. I absolutely hate horror movies, though. As for TV, I'm more of a drama person rather than a sitcom person. I tend to like medical dramas (you wouldn't think so with all the personal medical drama that I have, but I was a big ER fan until it got horrible about seven years ago. Why won't that show throw in the towel?) and legal dramas. I like some sitcoms--was a Seinfeld and Sex and the City fan.
What do you like?
