What's showing, Netflix?

Is there any way to see what movies are available on Netflix (at least currently, and preferably also things that were available at one time or another)? After poking around their website, I can't find any way to search unless I want to Start My Free Trial TODAY!!!

Please recommend a good small TV ...to someone whose last TV had tubes.

I would like to buy a very small (20" to 25") television for my study. I would like to watch DVDs, Netflix, movies & TV from iTunes, and maybe even some over-the-air network shows. But I bought my last TV used in 1992 and all I had to worry about was an antenna. (It had a sweet integrated VCR. I taped Twin Peaks off the air. It was the best of times!) I know nothing, and am bewildered by the options. Help? [more inside]

Surreal Acrobatic Movies on Netflix?

My 7-year-old enjoyed watching Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away at home, on Netflix. She became fascinated with the costumes and weird characters, the acrobatic scenes in strange settings, and didn't seem bothered by the fact that there was only a loose plot and virtually no dialogue ("It's like a dream," she said). What are other similar, surreal dreamy movies on Netflix that she might like?

Inspiring documentaries about artists and creators

Identify this object from *House of Cards*

In anticipation of season two's release this week, I've been re-watching season one of House of Cards. About eight minutes into the ninth episode, Peter Russo is being interviewed by a New York Times journalist. The man records their conversation using the device in this screenshot. I remember being intrigued by this voice recorder while watching the show last year, but could not find out the make or model. My interest is once again piqued. Googling has gotten me nowhere. Do you know what it is?

Does anybody have any advice on how to do this?

I've got the landlord coming on Monday to do something mysterious to my appliances and my apartment is a slight disaster area.

Cliffhangerless TV shows

I enjoy watching TV before bed. I especially enjoy watching TV Netflix style preferring to watch a show from beginning to end one or two episodes a night. It can help me relax and make me ready to fall asleep. It can also wire me and keep me up all night. I've figured out that it's the shows with cliff hangers that wire me. Can you recommend TV shows that typically end with the story wrapped up nice and neatly at the end of most episodes. I have access to Netflix, Amazon Instant, and Dish Network.

Why isn't my Roku XD letting me stream in Hi-Def with my new HDMI cable?

I bought a Roku XD a couple of weeks ago. It did not come with an HDMI cable, that was sold separately. It said to purchase one if you wanted to watch "in the best picture quality". Today, I finally got around to buying a standard 3ft HDMI cable and hooking it up to my high definition TV HDMI port. I'm trying to stream Netflix or Amazon movies on it though and it's still standard definition fuzziness. The connection setting says my Wi-Fi is "Excellent" and I have high speed cable internet wi-fi at home. What gives? [more inside]
