    Eu gosto muito das series originais da Netflix, porem em filmes originais ainda não apareceu nada bom.

  • getwiththetimes  

    "this is just the good stuff" They will never show you when Clue (1985) is available.

  • netflix-usa  

    For people outside the USA, you can watch a lot of content using a VPN (Very Private Server). It's not too difficult to do. Of course don't try it if your pop corn is already cooked loll.

  • GustavoWoltmann  

    Nice, i love many of these, they're really good

  • ehkaim  

    The previous comment from HateSpammers indicates that coverage of Amazon Prime is also available. Where? What am I missing?
