Dear 100 Hour Board,
Welcome back, Alumni! It's nice to have a little blast from the past.
So... what should I watch on Netflix next? The way that they present shows they think you would like on their page means that I keep seeing the same shows over and over again, and sometimes I don't even realize when a new show has been added. My spouse and I watch Netflix pretty much every night, and we're running out of shows we haven't seen before. What have you been watching lately? Or is there something from the past that you think everyone should watch? (We've already wasted months of our lives on "Lost".)
P.S. Have ya'll been watching "Trial & Error"? It's fantastic!
I'm usually not much of a TV person, but my wife and I are about a season and a half into Mad Men and I love it. Also THEY MADE A NEW SEASON OF MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 AND IT IS WONDERFUL.
Since I'm doing a recommendation on TV shows elsewhere I'm going to recommend comedy specials on Netflix. Watch at your own risk since I probably have different tolerances for swears, subject matter, etc.

Stargirl and I just finished with Star Trek: The Next Generation, because she had never seen it. Watching through TNG with my hot wife was basically teenage Foreman's wildest dreams come true. Soon we'll probably move on to Deep Space 9.
It's not too shocking for those in the know that the first few seasons of TNG can be rough going. This is a pretty good guide for navigating around some of the less-impressive episodes.
Dear Tracy Morgan,
The Crown. It's amazing.
Is White Collar still on there? If yes, then I vote that.
