Netflix Surprises (Hidden Gems)

"Netflix Surprises" are exactly what they sound like: a movie or TV show that either I (or the general public) figured to be something not worth watching, wasn't popular, etc. but that is found surprisingly good. (These are the diamonds in the rough on Netflix Instant!)
