What I'm Watching on #Netflix

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

This week's picks from Netflix Instant Watch:

TV Show:
The Walking Dead is an AMC original series based on a graphic novel. Graphic being the operative word. This show about a sheriff deputy who wakes up in from a coma to find himself in the middle of a zombie apocalypse is gory, gruesome, and grotesque. It's also a little cliche. The story adds nothing new to the zombie horror culture. To me, it's a mash up of  Legend and Dawn of the Dead. But the acting and cinematography is superb, plus some of it is filmed in my old neighborhood of downtown Atlanta. You can actually see the loft building we we used to live in a few shots. I tuned into the season 2 premiere on Sunday and it did not disappoint.

Movie:
Kissing Cousins. Amir is the opposite of cupid. He is a professional heart-breaker who gets paid to dump other people's significant others, and he has no love life of his own. He decides to rethink his bachelorhood after receiving disappointing news on his 30th birthday just as his beautiful cousin appears and volunteers to pose as his girlfriend. They almost take the joke too far and Amir is left to wonder if he is overlooking true love right under his nose.

Yea that kissing cousins movie sounds a little to "marry your 1st cousins and that's cool" redneck for me! Lol I can't.

Everyone seems to watch that zombie show. I haven't caught it yet.

Ooooh DH and I LOVE Walking Dead! We haven't watched last night's episode yet but glad to hear it's worth the wait. I recently asked him what's better "Walking Dead" vs. "Breaking Bad" and he said "Breaking Bad" (which I only catch parts of - he's catching up on it online). I think they're both good in their own way!

So many people have been talking about the walking dead on my facebook and twitter newsfeed. I have GOT to check it out and see what all the hype is about.

Can't do Walking Dead, I need my sleep! Kissing Cousins sounds interesting to me and I'm adding it to our queue right now! Thanks for continuing to point me towards some cool alternatives in regards to my viewing entertainment. I have no idea how you find out about some of these, but you certainly mix it up!
