Just a couple of years ago, a list like this would appeal to a narrow base of readers. But Netflix now has almost 17 million subscribers, 66 percent of whom streamed a TV show or movie last year. In other words, if you're reading this, you probably pay a few bucks a month to rent DVDs and watch content on your computer. (And if you don't, what's stopping you? The lowest plan shakes out to $10 a month or so, and it includes unlimited streaming.) The good news: Its popularity means Netflix is constantly adding new material. The bad news: It's often hard to weed through the additions to get to the good ones.
