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.
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.
