Netflix Fridays: What are We Watching Now?

Ok - It's not so much that I forgot yesterday, but we have had electricians crawling all over our house for the past three days which is just a teensy bit distracting and disorienting. So, anyhow, here goes:

John Adams: Disc 2 - I was surprised how engrossing this mini-series really was - especially as a reflection of our current political climate. The freedom and ferocity of expression by our founding fathers was truly admirable and something we will never see the likes of again. As with everything which is politically thought-provoking, I am now depressed.

Dr. Katz - The Complete Series: Disc 6 - Still freaking funny.

Due South: Disc One - This was a short lived series on CBS in the late 90s which was regarded as a bit of a rip-off of Northern Exposure, though it garnered a lot of critical praise. What really intrigues us is the lead actor, though. Paul Gross, from the hilarious Canadian series "Slings & Arrows" plays a Canadian Mountie who moves to Chicago and teams up with an American Detective and has a whole bunch of wacky crime-fighting capers. One thing we're sure of, no mater what the quality of the show is, Gross will undoubtedly give an amazing performance. When we saw "Slings & Arrows," we immediately sought out anything else this guy had ever done. You know that's a good sign.
