what are you into? they have a great collection so its a little daunting to start!
The Nature of Existence is really good if you like religious docs. theres a great Ken Burns doc on the Shakers that was excellent, but then all the Ken Burns docs are great if you like history (Civil War, The War, Donner Party). The Cosmos w/ Carl Sagan is a MUST if you havent seen it before...he's brilliant! Being Elmo, the story of Kevin Clash was so enlightening! i also loved Conan O'Brien Cant Stop, Freakonomics, How Beer Saved the World, For the Bible Tells Me So, Who Was Jesus, What the &%$# Do We Know?, Witness to Jonestown, The McVeigh Tapes, anything Biography or History Channel, Happy, The Science of Sex, this Emotional Life, Science of Babies, HH Holmes, Nova Science Now, at least several about Hitler, MLK Jr, and various Presidents...i could go on and on. docs are the main reason we keep Netflix (and the kid shows).
