Netflix Picks

Recommended Posts

Just got it on the wii and the loading drives me freaking insane! Sometimes during show it doesn't get inturrupted at all, and then others, like right now, it stops to load every minute and a half. Any suggestions on how to deal with this aside from throwing a sewing machine at the TV?

faster connection, or maybe the wii isn't built for streaming content. well, it's a fact that it wasn't. that was a nintendo flub and afterthought. works great over PS3, PC, iPad and Xbox as far as I've seen.

hmmm...just got an X box, maybe I'll try switching it over.

You should definitely be watching Netflix over your XBox and not the Wii, if only for the fact that the Wii can't broadcast HD output.

As for the buffering issue... is your internet connection being used for anything else at the same time, e.g. downloading torrents?

As bouche and Ollie mentioned, the xbox will be the better choice of the two (wii/xbox) for netflix.

One thought I have regarding your load/buffering issue (if it isn't the wii causing it) is to start the show, and then once it connects, pause it and let it load fully, then hit play. I used to do that with an older pc when streaming youtube or movies. Not an ideal fix per se, but it does help ease the frustration.

On the American Netflix we watched and dug The League with Montreals Jon Lajoie..it is realy super funny. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1480684/

On the Canadian Netfix I loved Damages with Glen Close doing great at playing evil. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0914387/ and we both loved Raising Hope http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raising_Hope and now watching Brotherhood and fully digging it. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0457229/

The Vice Guide to Travel is very interesting. Especially the last episode featuring a trip to North Korea.

Also, check out Whites. It's a british comedy set in a kitchen.

Stuff that used to be available sometimes gets removed over time. If you can't find it, that's probably what happened

Apparently Netflix is rolling out lists. Has anyone noticed this functionality added to their Netflix apps? I don't see any change online.
Netflix's Watch Instantly streaming service in the US started with the same queue-based experience users were familiar with from its disc-by-mail rentals for bookmarking titles to watch later, but internationally the option has never existed.

Except I've had this functionality for the past 2+ years. Glad it's coming for everyone else, it's a close-to essential feature.

I could use some recommendations I guess. I recently (4 days ago) started a new one month trial. This time I've been using a VPN to get the US selections and while it's better than the Canadian selections I really don't see much I'm interested in watching still.

I've only watched these so far:

Orange is the new black (meh)

Rescue Me (last few episodes I missed in final season)

National Geographic stuff

Badass - it's terrible, which was disappointing because I tend to enjoy most parts that Danny Trejo plays. This one not so much.

[edit to add]

To save folks time, I'm not really a fan of silly or "zany" comedies, thriller or horror I can take or leave. I mainly enjoy docs and drama - although I'm pretty particular about those as well.
