I don't believe I've kept it a secret on how much I enjoy my Netflix account.\u00a0 TheHubs and I are like *this close* to fully cancelling our cable account (except we need to keep a couple international channels on hand for when our family decides to drop by for a week or two,) 'cause when we're wanting to watch TV together, 9 times out of 10 we're doing a marathon with one of the TV shows available on Netflix.\n\nI'm currently working on The Walking Dead. :)\u00a0 One of our more memorable marathons that TheHubs and I watched was all nine seasons of The XFiles on Netflix. I believe it took us about four or five months to complete the marathon, and it was all kinds of awesome.\u00a0 There are tidbits that both of us missed while watching it the first time around back in the late 90's that made us go, "Aha! That totally makes sense now," while watching it in succession this time.\n\nOur weekends are for movies though.\u00a0 The latest one we've seen (just this past weekend,) was Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.\n\nIt was good. I didn't realise until we started watching, that one of my fave actors, Jimmi Simpson (Breakout Kings), is in it, so that boosts my movie rating up for it right away, lol.\u00a0 The dude is genius, and he makes any and every character I've seen him play interesting. So, YAY! The film was fun to watch, though there were a few moments where I really, well and truly, had to check logic at the door.\u00a0 Yes Vampires do require some ignorance in logic all on their own, but even then there were some moments of, "That just happened - Whaaat?"\u00a0 ;)\u00a0 If you're looking for something fun though, with a touch of violence, this movie might just be what you're looking for!\n\nHere are some other movies and shows that have mostly just recently been released for Netflix Canada (tried to find something for nearly every taste, except horror and romance - they're just not my thing, sorry!):\n\n\nI've yet to see Madagascar 3, but there's a great chance its totally funny 'cause hey, it's Madagascar, and the "circus afro" song made me giggle every time the commercial played last year! Da-da-da-da-da-da Circus! ... Have no idea what I'm talking about? Okay here ya go!\n\n\n\n\nAnother movie that I haven't seen yet (it's on my list of things to do,) but hello awesome cast!\u00a0 How can you go wrong with Robert Redford, James Gandolfini, Mark Ruffalo, and Delroy Lindo??\u00a0 Heck, I just might wait until Father's Day to watch this with my dad, as it's totally his kind of movie!\n\n\n\nI saw this one a few times, 'cause I love alien-based stories! And even though you could probably figure out each character's angle and resolutions within the first half hour, its still an entertaining movie to see, if a bit raunchy in the way that you would expect from Vaughn, Stiller and Hill.\u00a0 Richard Ayoade\u00a0 (The IT Crowd) is another favourite actor of mine, so I was totally excited to watch him work the big screen last year.\u00a0\u00a0 He does awkward British nerd SO well! *hearts*\n\n\n\nThis movie irks me, because I really want to see it, but I can't 'cause I don't like Alien-type violence.\u00a0 Yep, I'm a sci-fi lover that hasn't seen any of the Alien movies, and I'm not gonna anytime soon, lol.\u00a0 I can't do horror\/heavy-violence (unless its Expendables, 'cause that movie is too much full of win to miss,) and the trailer suggests there's quiet a bit of hardcore violence in the latter half of this film.\u00a0 It has qualities of some of my all-time favourite story-lines though... the whole premise just reeks of Stargate (Movie and\/or SG1) lore, and the ship is reminiscent of Serenity (Firefly,) at least on the outside... *sigh*\u00a0 When I first saw the trailer in a theatre, I was bouncing in my seat for the first thirty seconds thinking I was watching a Stargate reboot, until the obvious Alien bits started playing. *pout*\u00a0 If you enjoy sci-fi and don't mind violence, this might be a good lazy-Saturday movie for you.\n\n\n\nDo you ever play "Whose that Guy\/Girl?" while watching a movie\/show?\u00a0 Sometimes watching TV with my dad is like playing Hollywood trivia, lol.\u00a0 If there is a familiar face on TV playing a supporting role, or even one step above an extra, we spend the next ten minutes of the show wracking our brains to figure out where we've seen them before.\u00a0 Like it matters right? ;)\u00a0 But for some reason, apparently it does.\u00a0 Like I can't enjoy the rest of the movie unless I can recall the actors' casting history, 'cause that could make or break the film...\u00a0 *shrugs*\u00a0 I always thought that was just a family quirk of ours, but there's a documentary based on it, so maybe you guys play this same game at home too?\n\n\n\nThere is a TON of TEDTalks related episodes on Netflix. I really enjoyed the humor and space related ones, and am probably gonna start watching Ancient Clues next; the first episode discusses dinosaurs vs chickens (which would totally explain how the egg came first, lol!)\u00a0 If you enjoy watching blow-your-mind discussions, you really need to start watching any of the 37 series available on Netflix.\u00a0 Heck, while counting how many series there are, I just found one on Beauty and Fashion, cool!\n\nHow many cartoons turned movie turned Sunday morning cartoon reboots can say they have used the same voice for the lead character in like, everything.\u00a0 I'm such a fan of Peter Cullen, though you may know him better as Optimus Prime. This dude has been the voice of Optimus since 1984!\u00a0 Transformers Prime is the latest installation (though another movie is in the making right now,) and has been a fan favourite for both myself and my two and a half year old nephew.\u00a0 It's kinda cool enjoying a show together, and I'm fully tasked to mold my nephew into as much of a geek as his auntie! The kid already tries to work our TV screen like you would a tablet when we're trying to select something on Netflix (IE, he walks up to the screen and starts swiping, in search of his fave shows... unbeknownst to him, either myself or his uncle is using a remote behind his back to make it look like his tablet swipes are actually working on the TV screen, LOL!)\u00a0 His other favourite show(s) is all of the Power Rangers installations... I can forgive him this though. ;)\nAnd finally...\n\nStarting this Sunday May 26th, the fourth season of Arrested Development can be found on Netflix and only on Netflix!!\u00a0 Its an exclusive, so if your a huge fan of AD (like TheHubs is,) then you're gonna want a subscription to Netflix to watch.\u00a0 At only $8\/month, with a first month free trial, now just might be a really great time to sign up.\u00a0 If I understand correctly, the entire season will be released all at once, so Sunday just might be called Arrested Development day here.... I might just have to pick up some TV-marathoner snacks for TheHubs on Saturday, lol.\nYou didn't think I'd leave you hanging with just a cool list of shows to watch on Netflix did ya?\u00a0 Pfft!\u00a0 We've got a giveaway for you too!\u00a0 Have you heard of a Roku before?\u00a0 This device lets you stream Netflix on virtually any TV.\u00a0 Imagine getting to watch Season 4 of Arrested Development right on your TV!\u00a0 Cool right?\u00a0 So here's your chance to win a Roku 2 AND a 1 YEAR subscription to Netflix!\u00a0 It doesn't matter whether you're a new member or not to win the subscription, so I would totally suggest trying out the 1 month free trial now, and add the year subscription to your account later if you win! :)\n\na Rafflecopter giveaway\n\n\n \n\n** EDIT ** June 2nd, 2013 Please note that your comments may be appear to be missing, but they aren't really.\u00a0 I'm updating the commenting system on Geek with Style, and it will take some time for the new system to show the comments that existed beforehand.\u00a0 I do have copies of all your comments though, and they will return soon!
