Top 5 Netflix Instant Streaming TV Series

One of my favorite things about Netflix is watching a TV series commercial free.  I actually prefer a good TV series over a good movie because you have more time to develop characters and story lines.  So without further ado... I give you the top 5 TV series you will find on Netflix:

#5. Glee
One of the most entertaining and edgy shows to come along on broadcast tv in quite some time.  I'm straight... but I still love a good musical!

4. Dexter
I'm not a big horror / slasher movie kinda guy, but Dexter is great.  He's a lovable serial killer (if there is such a thing) who happens to work for the Miami PD doing crime scene investigations.  Edge of your seat thriller... good stuff.

3. Weeds
As Snoop Dogg said when he made a cameo, Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) is MILFILCIOUS.  Great cast, hysterical writing, and oddball characters make this a one of a kind comedy.

2. Sons of Anarchy
I put on the first episode before I started my weekend chores on a Saturday morning, I got hooked and couldn't stop until the first season was done on Saturday night.  This show is like the Soprano's but for the Biker Gang crowd.  Katey Sagal is AWESOME as the matriarch of the motorcycle club.

And the # 1 show...

1. Spartacus
Starz struck gold with this series.  Blood... sex... ancient rome... this show has it all.  I watched the first show and thought it sucked.  By the 3rd show I was totally hooked.  The finale of the first season was one of the best, if not the best hour of TV ever.

Mortal Kombat Legacy

For you Mortal Kombat fans, there's a new web series now available... Mortal  Kombat: Legacy!  Starring Jeri Ryan as Sonya Blade, and Michael Jai White as Jax, this is a hard hitting (TV-MA) rendition of a SciFi classic.  IGN has a well written full review of the first episode in the series.  This show is not available to users that pay for TV on Comcast, Time Warner,  or Verizon.  It's only on YouTube!

Cheaper-TV loves free advertising supported content.  We're looking forward to more original series appearing on YouTube and other online streaming outlets.
