Having been a Netflix subscriber for years now (since April 2006), I am loathe to consider canceling either the DVD by mail or the streaming "Instant Watch" option which I've come to enjoy. But the simple truth is that I don't use either very much. But this is what I caught this summer…
|Smith & Carlin on the set of Dogma|
• Kevin Smith: his entire filmography plus his live Q&A's like the latest Too Fat for 40. While his films range from poor to nearly-great, they are all enhanced by the commentary tracks by Smith and his crew. Funny and informative.
Clerks (including his first film, the documentary short "Mae Day")
Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
The ones I skipped were Chasing Amy (actually rented this last summer), Zack & Miri Make A Porno (saw in theaters when it came out in 2008), and his latest film Red State (caught it a few weeks ago w/ live streaming Q&A).
• Super High Me (Doug Benson's pot doc)
• Comedians of Comedy: Live @ the El Rey (Patton Oswalt, Maria Bamford, etc.)
• Battlestar Galactica - Marathon viewing of all four seasons of Ronald D. Moore's reboot. Probably the best long-form sci-fi I've ever seen, even if it fizzled out during the last season.
• It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - Seasons 1 & 2
• Party Down - Season 1
