Return of Invasion of the CW on Netflix

As if you didn’t have enough to watch, Netflix has unleashed another wave of television shows on instant streaming, most of them from CW.

Supernatural (2005-2011)

“Raised by their dad to fight supernatural forces, grown siblings Dean and Sam crisscross the country in their 1967 Chevy Impala, investigating paranormal activity and picking fights with deadly demons, ghosts and monsters.”

Season seven is now available – I love Supernatural but I think it jumped the shark after season five.

Nikita (2010-2011)

“Nikita is one of the most highly skilled assassins on the planet, and her target is the mysterious corporation that created her. The Division, as it’s known, picks up at-risk teens to train as killers, and Nikita will do anything to bring it down.”

Season two of Nikita is now available.

Gossip Girl (2007-11)

“Kristen Bell provides the voice of an anonymous blogger who narrates the action in this hit series set in an exclusive New York City boarding school. The plot centers on the day-to-day dramas of the school’s most privileged students.”

Season five now available.

Hart of Dixie (2011)

“New Yorker Zoe Hart’s dreams didn’t involve patching up the locals in a tiny town in the Deep South, yet that’s exactly where the fast-talking city girl finds herself when she ends up inheriting a medical practice in Bluebell, Ala.”

First season now available.

Desperate Housewives (2004-2011)

“Winner of multiple Golden Globes, this popular prime-time soap follows the exploits of suburbanites Susan (Teri Hatcher), Lynette (Felicity Huffman), Bree (Marcia Cross), Gabrielle (Eva Longoria) and Edie (Nicollette Sheridan), whose daily lives run the gamut from parenting and marriage woes to steamy sex and deadly betrayal. Even as the ladies of Wisteria Lane harbor dark secrets, they lend one another support when the going gets tough”

Season eight just added.

Family Guy (1999-2010)

“In Seth MacFarlane’s no-holds-barred animated show, buffoonish Peter Griffin and his dysfunctional family experience wacky misadventures, from kidnapping the Pope to being forced to put up scythe-bearing Death for a few days after he breaks his leg.”

Season nine added.

Damages (2007-11)

“Emmy winner Glenn Close is riveting as lawyer extraordinaire Patty Hewes, whose intellect is as boundless as her morals are skimpy. With her devoted colleague, Tom Shayes, and conflicted protégé, Ellen Parsons, Patty rules the New York legal scene.”
