Hi All,
Is it just me or is the Netflix range not so great now? 

I saw that they lost the rights to about 1600 titles a few months ago, which included some really popular titles. Since then they've formed a new deal to get a whole bunch of new children's movies, which doesn't interest me at all.

I've had the service for about a year now, but am only really a casual viewer, and it feels like I've seen all the really good stuff.  Even a lot of my recommendations now estimate I'll only give them 2 stars.  I'm also disappointed that they removed "Expiring soon" notifications from their API, as viewing this list used to help me select something to watch.

Anyone else starting to feel a little disappointed in the Netflix range? It would be great if we could use this thread for recommendations and reviews of Netflix titles you've recently seen.

P.S. This thread is not about how to access Netflix as there are plenty of other Geekzone threads that have this info. There's also this great movie thread, but I'd like it if we could use this thread specifically for discussion about Netflix.

I have about 300 titles in my queue, and I count a tv series like lost or 24 as one title, even if it is 7 seasons of 20 odd episodes each.
Every single title in my queue is something I want to watch.

So no, I don't agree that their library is getting bad. They still have years of content I want to watch.

They don't have a lot of new content, but then they never did.

I have hundreds(350) of programmes/movies set up in my queue, so I think their selection is quite good. 
One series I am enjoying at the moment is Longmire. 

Also, if you use Unblock-US you can change the region on your computer and get access to different programmes in different Netflix regions, some have subtitles which you can't turn off, but there is a wide variety of things to watch. And for the price per month it is pretty good.
