Did you notice the new "Instant Watching" feature at Netfix? For every dollar you pay for your monthly subscription to Netfix you get one hour of free instant watching of selected films per month! Not bad. Certainly, you won't find new releases there, but if you're like us and don't watch television, the supplement adds a lot to the value of your subscription.
Things we've recently enjoyed from Netflix instant watching...
IMAX: Coral Reef
The Natural History of the Chicken. No, I'm not kidding. This was very weird and the people in it were weird, too. I suppose that isn't surprising, but it did spark some interesting discussions around here.
The Empire State Building from the Modern Marvels series.
Mammoth Journey from the Walking with Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Beasts series. Did you know the Osage Orange is part of the Mulberry family and is largely inedible to living animals, but was a staple of the Mammoth diet?
The fabulous Blue Planet documentaries Seas of Life, Tidal Seas and Coasts are also available there! As well as David Attenborough's Life in the Freezer. Excellent.
Be warned there are plenty of bad things there as well, so don't look over the selections with anyone you wouldn't take into a video rental store.
