If your DVR’s full or you’re allergic to DVDs, Netflix’s “Watch Instantly” feature is extremely handy. Netflix does an amazing job of constantly updating their database, making Watch Instantly one of the most popular services on the internet. Though the selection was scant at its inception, the library quickly expanded and is most often used to catch up on entire seasons of that TV show you’ve missed out on. Now, there’s so much to watch, where do you start? Here are 5 of the best TV shows currently on Netflix Watch Instantly.
One of the best sci-fi drama shows in recent years was the revamped Battlestar Galactica. With its sprawling story lines and epic space battles, BSG can now be watched anywhere you have an internet account. Did I mention it’s streaming in HD? Out of this world.
Friday Night Lights
Clear eyes. Full hearts. Can’t lose. Friday Night Lights is like that great sports movie that comes around every other year. Except with FNL you can watch that movie every week. The show about football, that you don’t have to like football to watch is beloved by critics and fans alike. Just make sure you watch it alone if you don’t want people to see you cry.
The Office (British)
Yeah I know, every nerd when you tell them you watch the American Office will ask if you watched the British version and it’s annoying. But the thing is, it really is worth it. There’s a reason the mockumentary style is so blatantly ripped off for shows, because the British Office did it so well, with resounding success. And now that it is on Netflix Watch Instantly there’s no excuse to saying you haven’t seen it.
Not everyone just wants to watch sitcoms and dramas. Some people want to stay informed and with that there’s no better program than Frontline. The probing documentary series isn’t as stuffy as you might think and after watching a few programs you will see the glaring void of great journalism in today’s media.
The Whitest Kids U Know
If you loved The Kids In The Hall, then you shouldn’t have any problems with this sketch show featuring the young comedy group made up of Sam Brown, Zach Cregger, Trevor Moore, Darren Trumeter, and Timmy Williams. Entering its fifth season, the show currently airs on IFC. You might remember 2 of the members were behind the underrated comedy “Miss March.”
