Currently Watching // Netflix & More

I have been a streaming video only person for about 5 years now.  That means I've not had cable, only Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video and the like for the last 5 years.  We do actually have a cable subscription since the package we got made for faster internet...but the cable box is currently in the closet of the spare room.  So all I watch - besides YouTube - are streaming services, etc.  So this is what I'm currently watching.
So this has been talked about for a long time now.  We finished this show about a week or so ago...maybe a little longer.  I do have to say this is an amazing show.  It is super creepy, much more creepy than I thought it would be.  You may be expecting a big long conspiracy thing for this one....but I don't have it!  While I really, really enjoyed the show and think it totally has the creep factor and the WTF factor going on...I am fully satisfied with the cliff hanger ending.  I guess I didn't go as deep as I could have while watching this because I don't have the same questions that everyone else has.  I guess I took it for a complete story with intended unexplained things and I am satisfied with that.  I have been watching a lot of crazy stuff on YouTube with alternate theories, etc.  But I just thought it was a good story....and would have probably made a really awesome book.  I think if it was a book, I would have gone deeper.
Netflix only has a GA collection and that just doesn't do it for me so I've been streaming the episodes I can from the Travel Channel website.  I just like ghosty things, guys.  Give me any ghosty show and I'll watch it!  This one is sort of more freaky because the narration by the main guy Zak is half way scary with creepy reenactments and half way hilarious with all the rhetorical questions he asks.  For the most part I put this show on in the background as background noise (creepy background noise) while I'm sitting alone at my desk with my back facing the rest of the room.  Freaky as hell sometimes!
This is a miniseries on Netflix that apparently aired on CBC in Canada and Syfy in the US about a 100 year space mission for 600 volunteers to colonize a planet since the end of the earth is eminent durring the Cold War.  I have to say I've only watched one episode....Zach has watched quite a few.  He tells me I have to get through the first episode and it gets better.  I'm not 100% sold on it because it gets kind of confusing - the space ship (spoilers, its not what you think!  Thanks Zach!) is still stuck in the 60's but the time line is happening now. So you get these confusing parallel times where it is, for example, 2015 but on the space ship their stuck in the fashion & culture of the 60's but the here and now is the here and now.  Another thing I really can't get passed - in this show and a lot of shows - is the glorification of that time.  This is based in 1963 which is not the greatest time for quite a few groups of people.  And since very recently I just can't get behind the glorification of these times.  Anyway...I'm looking forward to watching more, hopefully.

So those are the three things I'm streaming right now, besides my love of watching all the YouTube videos.  I am looking for new series' too so give me your suggestions!

What are you streaming?

xoxo, Moe
