Netflix Now: Not/The Mama Edition

Netflix is absolutely crawling with awesome things this week. It's also crawling with bugs and it really should see someone about that. TV has Taking on Tyson, a documentary series about Mike Tyson and his passion for the pigeon-racing circuit. No, really. There's also Grey's Anatomy, Everybody Loves Raymond, and the Henson puppet sitcom Dinosaurs.

There are a ton of good movies on this week, as well. I'm probably most excited about Bellflower, which I've heard wonderful things about but hadn't gotten the chance to watch. Other than that, there's a huge selection in pretty much every genre. Comedies this week include Coming to America, Tommy Boy, The Longest Yard, Private PartsA Night at the Roxbury, and the South Park movie. There's action with Mission: Impossible (and Mission: Impossible III, but not Mission: Impossible II for some reason), both Beverly Hills Cop one and two, and the always awesome Face/Off.

We have a decent selection of chick flicks with Runaway Bride, Superstar, What Women Want, Something's Gotta Give, and Failure to Launch. And, if you need a good cry, there's always Hachi: A Dog's Tale. There are also a few educational films previously from IMAX theaters on this week, on subjects ranging from dinosaurs to the Grand Canyon. While I'm sure they're very pretty, it kind of defeats the point to watch them at home.

Hit the jump, but not the baby. You gotta love him.
