Netflix Instant: Cool Movies & TVs

Javi here. Just wanted to share some of the stuff I've been watching lately. Let's hope these suggestions keep you in your comfy during chilly nights.

I've only watched the first few minutes of the documentary, but if you're at all a an of beer and your favorite doesn't have "light" at the end of it, I'm sure you'll learn a thing or two about it.

This is the often forgotten first series by "geek" favorite director Edgar Wright. This features the first collaboriation of the nerdy trinity of Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost who would later go on to do SHAUN OF THE DEAD, and HOT FUZZ. It deals with two roommates an artist and a writer move in together, and the slightly surreal series chronicles their exploits. There's lots of themes of people not wanting to grow up, or even just trying to make sense of life. Going along with the rest of Edgar Wright's filmography, you see where a lot of the editing and themes that would permeate in his later work. Highly recommended.

This is by all means a ridiculous show. The characters are prety insane, the first two seasons are a less effective (500) DAYS OF SUMMER, and they literally back out of every new situation/life experience that seems to be thrown their way. And dispute all of this, the show has its it's moments of actual drama and character moments. Plus, I've somehow watched 4 seasons in the time it's been available. Highly addictive.
