Breaking bad is the greatest show ever. If you have never watched it, give it a chance. Its an absolutely fantastic show.

Just tried UnblockUS, and wow! The difference in available content is huge. Easy to set-up too (checked the BBC iPlayer there and worked too). How do I switch between US and Irish content though? Just redo the steps on the UnblockUS guide reversing what I changed?

Forget where I came across 'em, but they could do a much better job of letting people know they exist There's Curzon on Demand too for arthouse stuff. Mubi too, but they're better established. But again, hard to know they exist unless you're told about or accidentally stumble across them.

Re Breaking Bad / Twin Peaks. Just watch both. Although I'm still absolutely bamboozled about how BB seasons 3 and 4 have yet to receive any sort of legal release round these parts. And they wonder why people pirate.

Very good show too, but I prefer Lynch's movies personally. If you haven't seen Breaking Bad give it a shot.

Hope they get more HBO stuff over the next few weeks (plus the foreign film section is a little lacking), would be great if The Wire was on it.

Stop as soon as you find out who done it.

Maybe watch the last episode too, because it's mental.

But skip the stuff in the middle. It's awful.

Yep.... Just change the DNS settings back to what they were and then reset Netflix again and you're all set.

Just did this. It is incredible! Hope they don't crack on to the unblock me thing anytime soon. How does the US have Father Ted and the UK doesn't! The list of movies is fairly up to date and goes back a long way.

If anything netflix needs a favourites list of stuff i intend to watch in the future.

Aye,I really hope they don't.I'll subscribe to them and pay the money for UnblockUs, not sure if I'd do it for normal Irish selection

Have to say the selection of content isn't as bad as some have made out and I can see that new stuff is being added.

Watched Lost in Translation and The Machinst last, two films I never would have seen only that they are on Netflix.

Definitely second the need for a favourites option, seen a load of stuff I d like to save for later.

If the content improves further, I ll be signing up. Or using one of the methods mentioned here : )

I've found the foreign film very good tbh. What lets Netflix down somewhat is the UI. It gives the impression that there are only a certain number of titles in every section, whereas if you put in a manual search for a particular title it may well show up, and you would never have stumbled across it without the specific search.

I watched Millenium trilogy over the last couple of nights and have ate least half a dozen Korean films that I've pencilled in to watch on Netflix.

I agree. I watched Lost in Translation too the other day and I doubt I would ever have taken the time to check it out if it was not for the ease of Netflix. Really enjoyed it too.

What are the Korean movies? I'd like to check some out but I've no idea where to start.

Not gonna happen unfortunately. Sky have exclusive rights over HBO shows till 2015, and AFAIK now have exclusive first-see rights on AMC and Showtime shows too, meaning shows like Breaking Bad, Hell on Wheels, and Homeland will be on Sky Atlantic before anywhere else.

A good starting point would be Old Boy and I Saw The Devil. Both two brilliant revenge thrillers. I'm pretty sure they are both on Netflix. Not for the faint hearted though.

I'll have a look later on Netflix and post up what ones I've marked to watch.
