|I've given up on regular tv. I hate searching through one hundred or so channels without finding something interesting to watch. So I've been watching Smart Tv for the past two years. I get to watch things I really want to see at any time I want to them. And everything unavailable on Smart Tv, I can usually watch on the internet.
I have a built in apps on my Vizio tv, and the ones I usually use are Netflix, Hulu Plus, Web Videos, and Amazon Instant Video. Here's a list of my current favorite tv shows and movies.
1. The Booth At The End(On Hulu Plus): A mysterious man in a booth towards the back of a non-descript diner has the power to grant any wish. His customers come from all walks of life, and all have different desires. His price? Following specific tasks and telling him about them. The problem is, these tasks range from criminal acts to unusually creepy. To what lengths will a man go through to save his sick son? To what lengths will an elderly woman go to bring back her husband's sanity? All of these questions are answered with startling results.
2. Shotgun Love(Netflix): A Korean romantic comedy about a man in love with his(unbeknownst to him) pregnant co-worker.
3. Exam(Netflix): Eight applicants in an enclosed room compete for a job in the future. Trust me, it's more thrilling than it sounds. This movie has all the complexity of the original 'Saw' without the gore, and really shows what acting is all about. One of the few movies I can give 5 stars to without any reservations.
4. Goth(Netflix): Two high school classmates bond over extremely creepy things, making American goths look like whiny wannabes. But can these two young people get into the mind of a serial killer who displays his victims like works of art? This movie is yet another reason to like movies from Japan.
5. Mercy(Netflix): A shallow writer gains depth by falling in love with a woman he can't hold on to. I saw this right after watching "The Booth At The End", and was surprised by how two seperate writers could have the exact same underlying message in their bodies of work.
6. Zombies Anonymous(Netflix): Putting a spin on the wildly popular zombie subset of horror movies, this movie is about people who die and wake up as zombies...but with their memories and self-control intact. Satire and hilarity insues. Although this is by no means a perfect movie, the interesting questions it rises make it worth watching.
7. Romantics Anonymous(Netflix): This is a gem of a French movie. Two socially awkward people slowly turn their small chocolate company into a success while falling for each other.
