    I've watched a ton of shows on Netflix. I never watched Mad Men and watched the whole series (4 seasons at the time) in about 3 weeks. I also watched Damages, which was really good during season one, then it became progressively unwatchable. I also got into The Killing on Netflix. I watched the first season a few days before the second season started. Let's see...I also watched Weeds, caught up on Desperate Housewives, re-watched Dexter, Melrose Place and I'm sure there are others. I also like HBO Go. They have all of the excellent HBO shows. I'm starting to watch Six Feet Under. I watched most of it but I missed a lot of episodes so there are a ton of gaps. Those were the days before DVR's I'm also re-watching The Sopranos.

    Netflix has a lot of great kids programming, too. Lot's of Sesame Street, Elmo and Pocoyo for the kidlet

    You're still better off. American Netflix has a much better variety than Canadian Netflix. I'll tell you what, I will trade Soap for Northern Exposure.

    I'm still miffed that they took off Roseanne a few months back, that was my favorite, "I'm bored, let me watch something I've seen a million times" Netflix watch.

    watched some of Dylan Moran's stuff on YouTube last night and was crying, he's kind of adorable, too.

If you're talking in terms of the storylines, season 5 was after the resolution to Scully's cancer and so they focused on a lot of monster-of-the-week type stuff and just put the mytharc in here and there. That's also the season that introduced Diana Fowley. To her credit, Mimi Rogers was so convincing in that role, that I hate her to this day.
    I have to rewatch the Mimi Rogers ones. I watched everything all at once and some of it is blurring into one big episode. I'm always impressed when anyone can talk about all the episodes by title and I'm like, yeah, that's the one where the thing was there and I think there was a gross thing. lol I get more out of it than that, but I always end up picking up something new when I watch these things a few times. I did remember that some of the post-season 5 stuff didn't bother me as much as it bothered others, and I loved a lot of the "funny" episodes, too.

    That's how I got into The Killing, too. Rosie Larsen's picture kept beckoning me, and it was so dark and dreary, I got hooked. I watched it just a week before the second season, too.

    My boyfriend was watching and he said "Oh, you'll love this show. It's dark and dreary, lots of rain, about a murder and set in Seattle. Perfect for you." and he was right.

    I'm also still mad about them losing Roseanne. I watched it every night.

    Sorry to bump but I just started watching Dylan's standup after hearing you mention him(never heard of him, he's not that big in the US unfortunently) and WOW!

    He's hilarious, absolutely brilliant. Looks like Black Books is next on my queue.
