Start with the episode "Rose" if you don't want to watch the 1960's version.
for anyone that has netflix out of the usa you can easily get the usa version of netflix if you want. just search it on youtube, it is as simple as changing the dns on the device you have netflix on.
If you are into great scenery and are interested in nature and such Planet Earth are amazing to watch Seen them 4-5 times!
Adding to my first question, are there any decent anime's? I don't usually watch anime but I loved Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo. Watching Blood+ currently but it's a little touchyfeely for my tastes.
5 Centimeters Per Second is a must watch and Baccano, Eden Of The East and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time are also good.
