New To Netflix: Middle-Tier Prestige TV, Parenting, Classic Epics and Modern Silents

Contributing Writer; Toronto, Canada (@triflic)
This week's entry of New To Netflix has a heavy focus on quality TV that doesn't quite get the twitter chatter or critical limelight of Breaking Bad, True Detectives and House of Cards but is still quality stuff. In there is also two very different takes on modern parenting, one in documentary form and the other Roman Polanski's handsome remounting of the play, "God of Carnage."  Then there are two Oscar winners that couldn't be further apart, perhaps the largest wide-screen epic ever shot, and 2011's Academy Ratio black and white silent affair with a two winning performances and a cute dog.  Onwards.

New In The USA: THE CLONE WARS (Season 1 to 6)

Considered by many to be the best Star Wars related product to be put into the media landscape (not counting the non-Lucasfilm parody, Troops! of course) since Return of the Jedi, the long running animated CGI Animated series moved its last season form The Cartoon Network to premiere on Netflix itself, and all 5 previous seasons are now available as well.

That's over 100 episodes of the show (set between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, the titular Clone Wars) to fill the time if you are anticipating the new feature film, and also an opportunity to play 'spot the guest star voice' with names as varied as Ron Perlman, George Takei, Katiee Sackhoff, David Tennant, Simon Pegg, and more.

The 2008 theatrically released animated The Clone Wars movie is also available, but then again best to probably skip that disaster unless you are a completist.
