What I’m Watching on Netflix

Like many other college students I do not pay for cable. Instead, I pay $8 per month for Netflix. It’s great. I can watch Netflix on my computer, my Xbox and there’s even an app for my phone. The number of studios that have made deals with Netflix keeps growing, which is a great reason to get started with the service.

Here’s what I’m watching on Netflix right now:

I never thought I’d say this, but I’m watching Dexter. The Showtime series was recently added to Netflix and follows the life of Dexter Morgan, a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Metro Police Department. Dexter has a secret: he kills serial killers. I was surprised to learn that this show is not just a drama, but a dark comedy. It’s gruesome and gory, but don’t be surprised when Michael C. Hall’s monotone narrative draws you in.

Here’s one to lighten the mood: Louis C.K. Chewed Up. It’s an hour of pure comedic standup genius. Louis C.K. talks about everything from offensive language to being a father. It’s wildly inappropriate but so much fun.

Arrow_1_NOT-FINAL-COVER_0

I’m not big into the whole “superhero” genre. Arrow is different. There has only been one season so far, but the show is renewed for a second. Oliver Queen, a billionaire, has returned from spending years in isolation on a shipwrecked island. He doesn’t have any superpowers, but he’s dead accurate with a bow and arrow that he uses to fight crime. Where did he learn his skills? Will he ever get caught? One thing I like about the show is the flashbacks to Queen’s past.
