EW’s Criminally Underrated on Netflix

Entertainment Weekly’s current issue has several articles on criminally underrated television shows and movies. I thought that I’d highlight the ones you can watch on Netflix streaming.

Television: The Returned (The French series that spawned Resurrected), Peep Show, Harper’s Island (a slasher series where one or more cast members die each episode), The 30 for 30 series (picked by Bill Lawrence), Call the Midwife, Rectify

Movies: Flanders (picked by John Waters), Bandits, and two that would be on my personal list:

The Host

The Host (2006 – not last year’s abomination) – Rated R

A mutant creature has developed from toxic chemical dumping. When the monster scoops up the granddaughter of a snack-bar owner, he races to save her.”

Dead Snow

Dead Snow (2009) – Not rated

A group of friends gets the scariest history lesson of their lives during a weekend getaway, where the party is interrupted by Nazi zombies.

Look for the sequel, Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead, later this year.
