Otakus & Geeks: Netflix Picks of The Week #2

Another Sunday which means it's time for Netflix Picks of The Week. Sorry I miss last Sunday I was traveling and had some parties to attend. Here are my five choices for the week.

Pick Number 1
Genre - Educational Documentary
Title - Walking With Dinosaurs

Synopsis - The Cretaceous, Triassic and Jurassic periods come to life in this Emmy-winning series that shows the Earth through the eyes of individual dinosaurs.

Why You Should Watch - It's dinosaurs of course. This is a good six part episode that showcases different times of the dinosaur era. It shows dinosaurs that you probably never heard of and does a great job of showing dinosaurs of the sea. It's very interesting and educational.

Pick Number 2
Genre - TV Show
Title - Who The (Bleep) Did I Marry?

Synopsis - Meet men and women who thought they were happily married until one day they uncovered secrets about their spouse...secrets that would unravel their peaceful lives and leave them asking: Who the Bleep Did I Marry?


Why You Should Watch - This is real stories of real people who married the wrong person. Not to the mention it features the woman who married one of the most notorious serial killers in DC. It's a great show and really makes think of doing intense background checks on the person you are with. Better safe than sorry.

Pick 3
Genre - Sports
Title - WWE: The Epic Journey of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson

Synopsis - Follow the career of one of sports entertainment's biggest superstars, and find out what exactly "the Rock is cooking."


Why You Should You Watch - There is only three reasons you should watch this on Netflix. Reason 1 it's the great one. 2. Don't be a jabroni. 3. It's one hell of a documentary showing the great one's origins and how he became the mega star he is today.

Pick Number 4
Genre - Foreign Action/Comedy
Title - The Thieves

Synopsis - Cranking up the action to full throttle, this slick caper flick finds two teams of Korean and Chinese professional thieves working together to pinch a $20 million diamond from an impenetrable casino vault in Macao.


Why You Should Watch - This is a very entertaining caper movie. It has great characters, great action sequences and the chase on the building is epic and well filmed. If you don't mind subtitles for 2 hours and 16 minutes give this one a look.

Pick 5
Genre - Kids/Cartoon
Title - Ultimate Spider-Man

Synopsis -  Peter Parker comes of age in an epic tale - which finds him torn between his teenage life and a war between SHIELD and Norman Osborn. 16 year old Peter Parker is given the chance to become the Ultimate Spider-Man!


Why You Should Watch - It's a decent Spider-Man series. It's not as good or emotional as Spider-Man TAS but for this generation it's a fun kids show. It has some good animation and some fun humor for all ages.
