6Mbps is still pretty slow for Netflix, you'll want 20+ for the highest quality picture.

For all you adventurers out there, check out Horatio's Drive: America's First Road Trip. It's a Ken Burns documentary about the first crossing of the U.S. in a car. 1903 style.

No Impact Man: The Documentary

Not an exact match, but pretty interesting premise. It's in my instant que, but I haven't watched it yet...then again I have 250 movies in my instant que...

Documentary: The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia.

Funny at first, then sad, then heartwarming...some exploitation but aren't all documentaries to some extent?

For me, the entire X-Files TV series.

For my kids, there is all kinds of Dora, Scooby-Doo, etc... to make it well worth it.

Came to the party late....

Anyone mention "Exit through the Gift Shop"? It's actually free on Hulu right now too, for all those without Netflix.

OMG, so good and so interesting.

Just a quick note many of those streaming sites will have trojans so be careful.....or use Linux.

(And of course the disclaimer that many also are violating copyright law by posting the full movie.)
