Ok so I’m not 100% one for endorsing any bigwig company. However I enjoy netflix for some reasons that aren’t on your average viewers lists.
1. Netflix is a hive of nostalgia. Yes. Yes it is. In the past few months I have seen the original three seasons of The Mighty Morphing Power Rangers(and an addition to that almost every other incarnation of power rangers there is.). V.R. Troopers, Beatleborgs, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Beakmans World, Streetsharks, HE-MAN and the Masters of the Universe, Bravestar!! Shows that I grew up on. Shows that are on every nerds mind from time to time. With all these oldies but goodies the good people at netflix are adding more all the time.
2. Music Documentaries. I love music. Yes I am a metal head at heart but with so much music in the world from so many years you just can’t listen to one genre and be ok with it. They have documentaries about Queen, Meatloaf, Black Sabbath! They also have concerts. Just the other day I was watching Jaco Pastorious at a 1970’s jazz festival in i believe montreal on netflix.
3. And third and finally…… Old movies. One thing about me is I love old movies and without netflix, I probably would have gone quite a while without seeing some of the greatest movies ever made. From Nosferatu and Phantom Of The Opera to The Abominable Dr. Phibes and all of those b-horror movies in between. They are on my Insta-Queue and will never leave. However my only gripe with it is that they don’t have Elvira (aten-hut) announcing the movies. oh BTW should she be reading this through some act of the Gods or sheer dumb luck….. I LOVE YOU ELVIRA!!!!!! PLEASE COME BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11!1!1!!1!!!!!!!!!!1!!!!!!
Anyway. Those are your most nerdy reasons to like netflix. Besides some decent anime (i’m really not a big fan of it…like not at all really…besides Mobile Suite Gundam (the endless waltz kind) and Ronin Warriors I don’t do anime.) There are some killer science and philosophical documentaries. Which also I am absolutely in love with. Something about Quantum Physics that just gets my gears going.
Well that’s it for this blog. I just wanted to let you know all the cool stuff that has been on netflix. You might have to search for some of it. Especially the older movies if your into it like me. Either way enjoy what it be.
I’m also irrevocably in love with elvira.
