If you’ve already watched the Best 25 Best Shows on Netflix, powered through the Next 25 Best TV Shows on Netflix, we now have even more, newer Netflix options for you. Here this week’s released seasons of television on Netflix, plus upcoming expirations and Netflix news.
Pick of the Week
Gilmore Girls: The Complete Series (Oct. 1st) — One of the fastest-talking, wittiest, charming and whimsical series of a generation finally comes to Netflix next week. We can’t say enough great things about the bond between Lorelei (Lauren Graham) and Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel), the wonder of Stars Hollow, and the incredible writing of Amy Sherman-Palladino. It’s probably also the number one Mom-and-Daughter series ever (reflected in teh fact that a lot of moms I know end up watching this with their daughters).
Expiring Soon The original UK version of Prime Suspect and Britain’s Upstairs Downstairs (on the 29th), Battlestar Galactica and a ton of Law & Order seasons will expire on the 30th (Law & Order (1990-1997); Law & Order: Criminal Intent (2006-2011) and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (2006-2010).
Netflix News of Note — In a fascinating turn of events, Comcast is accusing Netflix and the Discovery channel of extortion for opposing their merger with Time Warner, claiming that the criticisms of the merger alleged by Netflix and Discovery, basically, aren’t very nice and that they should cut it out.
Parks and Recreation: Season 6 (Sept. 26th) — Not the best season of Parks and Recreation (that would be the fourth), but even in its sixth season, P&R remained one of the best sitcoms around.
