Under the Microscope: Requests

I had largely forgotten about my Under the Microscope series until I had a drive-by troll on one of the Sylvia Browne entries. I'm going to try bringing it back with a review of "Mystery of the Crystal Skulls" today Saturday from my DVR, but I'd like to hear if there are any woo-tastic shows coming up I might be able to give the same treatment. I'd also appreciate some input on stuff like Netflix and similar movie rental services, since someday I'll just have to watch some nonsense out there like "The Secret" and "What the Bleep Do We Know?" for myself.

I'm a big fan of Netflix; I even upgraded to 3-at-a-time for the summer, mostly to catch up on Doctor Who.

Which reminds me, I have to finish "The Daleks" and "Tomb of the Cybermen" this weekend.

Anyway, the selection rocks, and the only drawback is waiting for the movies to come (I usually get a new one 2 days after I send one in, but YMMV). I haven't used it much for woo and blogging-related stuff yet (though I think "The God Who Wasn't There" was the first thing I got through it), so I can't speak for the variety on that front, but I imagine it's fairly comprehensive.

Don't bother with "What the Bleep do We Know" - go straight to the "sequel" which isn't. It's the latest edition of the same crap, with slightly different justifications for their beliefs.

Still, seeing that avoids the "We've changed! You should hear our great arguments now!" speech.
