Your Netflix might have some hidden gems buried inside of the growing list of streaming TV shows. It is probably well-known that Mythbusters is available on Netflix, but did you know about these 13 other shows? Not only does this list contain shows like Modern Marvels, there are also a couple of stream-able movies like the Andromeda Strain. Which, for me, was the first non-Star Trek or Star Wars Sci-Fi I remember watching. Which is interesting, because it is directed by Robert Wise, the director of the first Star Trek movie.
Anyway, the ECN Engineering Show list is pretty good and should have at least a few shows to add to your Netflix queue.
