On a tight budget and with a busy schedule, having DVDs shipped to my house is a luxury I (and probably a lot of other people) can’t afford. So, it’s always a big deal for me when a movie or show I’ve loved for a long time turns up to watch instantly on Netflix.com. Every so often, I’ll be checking Netflix for anything new and noteworthy. Here are two movies and a show that I can’t wait to watch.
1. Clue (1985)
Get excited, lovers of the murder-mystery board game. Clue is the movie version of the game, and at the risk of sounding like a teenager, it is totally awesome! The movie is complete with all the characters, such as Colonel Mustard and Mrs. White, and you can solve the mysterious death of Mr. Boddy without having to get out all the cards and little game pieces. Tim Curry plays the butler in this movie, and because he is one of my favorite actors, I think he is one of the reasons the movie is so great.
2. Mean Girls (2004)
When I found out that Mean Girls was on Netflix over the weekend, my initial reaction was “Finally!!!” Before that time, I could only watch the movie when I happened to catch it on TV. Now, I can finally watch Cady Heron and Regina George whenever I want. For those who are unfamiliar with the plot, this movie is about a teenaged girl who infiltrates her new high school’s most exclusive clique. Mean Girls is responsible for a ton of notable quotes like, “She doesn’t even go here!” and “But if you do touch each other, you will get chlamydia…and die!” Great stuff.
3. Sherlock (2010-Present)
The hit BBC show about the famous British detective has been steadily amassing followers both in the U.S. and across the pond. If you’ve followed the show exclusively on Netflix, you’ve only watched season 1 so far, and the last episode ends on an almost unbearable cliffhanger. If you didn’t find alternative means to watch the second season, your wait for season 2 is finally over. A word of warning, season 3 is expected to air in 2013 (I’m currently weeping as I type this), and the season 2 finale will leave you dying to know what comes next.
Happy viewing, Netflix fans! I’ll keep you updated on new Netflix finds, and I’ll continue to hope that one day they’ll add The Lion King and other classic Disney movies to instant streaming.
