Malcolm in the Middle is streaming on Netflix now (or maybe I just missed it and it's been on there for a long time)
That was one of my favorite shows as a kid/young adult, and it still holds up today. In fact, it's probably even better now that I'm older.

I caught a few shows here and there on Nick At Nite and enjoyed them I was glad to see they put the series on stream as well. Probably start that after I finish Law & Order.

Nice Malcom in the Middle is pretty good. Sometimes I felt it was hit and miss, but man when they hit it was hilarious.

Malclm in the Middle is one of my favourite shows of all time, and it makes me slightly jealous you are able to watch it on demand through Netflix in America.

The problem is, the series contains music the distributers weren't willing to clear for home video/DVD release.

That being said, Channel 5(star) in the UK are curently showing an episode a day, and they've already cycled back to the first series again. Currently, they are at the series where Francis is at the Ranch (a series made so much funnier with Kenneth Mars' Otto character).

I could gush about Malcolm in the Middle all day - the acting is brilliant, but it will always remain a favourite show of mine, no matter how many times it's repeated.

If you have the opportunity to watch Malcolm in the Middle on demand, do so.

If you try looking for any movies that actually made some money at the theater you won't likely find them on Netflix.

You shouldn’t just limit yourself only to movies that had big financial success. Some of the best movies ever were independent / bombed at the box office.

This. There is a lot of good quality that doesn't just involve a huge Hollywood budget. Try doing some exploring. You are already paying for the service so what is there to lose in checking out some stuff you have never heard of before?

The best movie I've seen on Netflix was probably Mrs. Doubtfire. That's obviously a good one but you don't see movies that popular very often.
I guess If I've never heard of a certain movie I figure there's probably a good reason. Most likely it sucked.
On occasion I'll find a decent one. I just hate when they remove stuff I was in the middle of watching.

I cannot understand how people have trouble finding good movies on Netflix's Instant service. There is a ton of stuff up there. I've watched and rated over 1700 films of Netflix, so the number of good unwatched movies on Instant for me is dwindling, but if you're not a film buff or obsessive movie viewer I cannot imagine feeling underwhelmed by Netflix's library.

Just looking at my "Watch It Again" category on the homepage:

Fearless (solid Jet Li movie)
Edward Scissorhands
Red State (Kevin Smith's new DIY film. Incredible! A must watch for horror fans)
Kick Ass
Chinatown
Twin Peaks (TV, not film, but still...)
The Exorcist
Session 9 (great horror film by Brad Anderson, director of The Machinist)
Resevoir Dogs
Die Hard
Ghost in the Shell
Dazed and Confused
Labyrinth
Carrie
Dark Days (awesome documentary on NY homeless with DJ Shadow score)
Death Wish (Classic Charles Bronson)
Teen Wolf
Clockwork Orange
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
The Terminator
The Mouth of Madness (campy but awesome John Carpenter film)
The Secret of Nimh (great 80's Don Bluth animated film)
All Dogs Go to Heaven
Die Hard
From Dusk Til Dawn (co-directed by Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez)
Big Trouble in Little China (another John Carpenter 80's camp classic)
Misery (great thriller based on a Stephen King story)
Meet The Parents
The Machinist (creepy psychological thriller with a borderline scary performance from Christian Bale)
Marathon Man (70's classic thriller with Dustin Hoffman)
They Live (more Carpenter 80's sci-fi camp)
The Graduate
Metropolis (old Fritz Lang sci-fi silent)
Robocop
Little Shop of Horrors
Big
Dead Man (Johnny Depp and Jim Jarmusch)
The Dark Crystal (Jim Henson studio classic)
Escape from New York
La Femme Nikita (Spy thriller from the director of The Professional)
Network (from classic director Sidney Lumet)
Superman: The Movie
Once Upon a Time in the West
Them (french horror/thriller)
The Killing (Stanley Kubrick)
Raging Bull (Dinero / Scorcese)
Dog Day Afternoon (Al Pacino / Sidney Lumet)
An American Werewolf In London
The Fly
Midnight Cowboy (legendary Dustin Hoffman performance, "I'm Walkin Here!"
Baseketball
Do The Right Thing (Spike Lee classic)
Fire and Ice (fantasy epic from Ralph Bakshi, master of adult animation)
Creepshow (directed by George Romero of Night of the Living Dead, based on Stephen King stories)

This is only 2 of the pages for the "Watch It Again" section and does not even begin to represent the amount of great movies that I've watched and rated on Netflix. I promise you, there is a ton of awesome stuff on Netflix for all types of audiences/viewers. Do some research on film classics, Netflix has a ton of them!

If you update Netflix in the Wii Shop Channel, they've added a "Just For Kids" mode that features kid-friendly characters, shows, and interface that you can safely leave your kids alone with if need be. Very clunky and a lot of kinks to work out, but it's kind of fun to use and Shaun the Sheep is one of the featured characters, which is awesome.

The update also makes some minor improvements to regular Netflix as well.

I'm getting bored with Netflix. They hardly ever update their TV shows to include new seasons. I'm thinking about switching to Hulu Plus. Is Hulu's selection more up to date?

From what I hear if you use Hulu plus on anything put the computer very few of their shows are available. I also like that Netflix is available on every electronic device that isn't black and white.

So the PS3 version of Hulu Plus has less content than the PC version? Why? It's the same service, regardless of the device you use.

I just wish Netflix would update their TV shows on a regular basis so they have all the current seasons. South Park only goes up to season 13, and Family Guy only goes up to season 7.

Unless it's already down, Lord of the Rings The Two Towers was just put on there like a month or two ago. To claim there is nothing that made money in theaters is instantly countered with that. >_>

But that's one good movie out of a long list of direct-to-video crap. Netflix does have the StarsPlay movies, but I heard that's expiring in February.

THey only stream what is available on DVD at the time. Current seasons arent on DVD yet.

For example I am a big Law & Order SVU fan and they are currently on season 13. All they have on Netflix and DVD are seasons 1 - 12. The day season 12 was out to buy on DVD Netflix had it to stream.
