@tendoboy: that's the real difference between Hulu and Netflix. Hulu carries much more in the nature of current TV shows and will often have the latest episodes up within a week of them having aired (if not sooner), though as someone's already mentioned watching on a mobile device can be hit or miss as some shows are web only (they're clearly marked, though, so you can tell instantly while searching whether you'll be able to watch it on a device or not). Netflix carries much more in the nature of solid movie choices and what's out on DVD, which is why it has a great catalog of past shows but may be missing more recent episodes of currently-running series.

I don't know if Sergeant Frog has been recommended yet, but they've got tons of the episodes on Netfilx. If you like stuff like Monty Python, it's basically the crazed-up Japanese version of that. Best to watch it with another fan of the show, as it can bring the major "WTF"s to the room.

I recommend the first season of Downton Abbey (it's only seven episodes), for anyone that's interested in understated, well-acted, well-made British period dramas with large ensemble casts focusing on an aristocratic family and their servants while rigid social class distinctions slowly decay around them. And if that seems too specific for you, let me just say that it's really good. And if you like try it and like it, I feel obligated to point out that PBS is currently airing the second season via their Masterpiece Classic program every Sunday (at 9 PM for me, but it's PBS, so check your local listings) and they've also made it available to watch on their website.

Or you could go with Doctor Who, which is also wonderful and British and that's about all the two shows really have in common.

Also, check out Parks and Recreation if you haven't, since the first three seasons are on Netflix. The first season was kinda meh, but season two and beyond have been pure gold. For my money, it's the best sitcom on television not named Community (although since Community is now on an indefinite hiatus, I suppose that means I do think that Parks and Rec is the best sitcom on TV).

And for anime fans, give Mushi-Shi a shot. It's beautiful, mysterious and wonderful. I'll leave it at that.

I would like to recommend "Kung Fu Dunk".

It's similar to "Shoalin Soccer", in the sense that it's a martial art with a sport. Although, this movie isn't over the top, and it's very well directed, plus the acting and story is wonderful. I highly recommend this film.

Glee. Yes. I used to think it'd be some dumb High School Musical knockoff but not at all. My friend started watching it, so i got into it and it's amazing. Don't think it's a kid's show either, it has plenty of adult themes and stuff. If you like music you should watch it. And no, the kids don't unrealistically break into song every five minutes, there's nothing like that. it's a pretty believable show for the most part.

Lots of censorship here...

@Magic-Wind good! The first episode is kinda different from the rest, but other than that i think it's great. I made fun of my friend when he started watching it, i didn't want to like it, but i just ended up watching it with him.

To keep going with my previous UK note, anybody that likes Community (and/or Simon Pegg movies) might also like to try out Spaced; it's pretty different from most other sitcoms. And Fawlty Towers is classic comedy genius.

Jericho! Great show. Sad it ended after only 1.5 seasons. Still, at least the team was able to bring some closure to the final episode so it had a near-proper ending.

I had Starz and got rid of it and never missed so I'm sure I won't miss it from Netflix either.
