Just when it looked like Netflix was taking a hit by dumping a ton of classic movies from their library, they came right back and added an embarrassment of riches. That’s the kind of thing that helps put bread on the Cross the Streams table. Now if only we could get some legs for it. While we’re busy eating off the floor, check out the latest in streaming sci-fi. You don’t even have to use the Schwartz.

Check the radar, because it looks like one of the most quotable movies in existence is available to watch tonight, tomorrow night, and for the rest of time, hopefully. Science fiction spoofs isn’t exactly a genre that gets a lot of attention, and Spaceballs is the granddaddy of them all, directed by a Mel Brooks at the height of his powers, before the disappointing Life Stinks. Is there anything about this movie that I can tell you guys that you don’t already know? Probably not, but don’t call me chicken, mog.

This DVD collection gathers the second batch of retrospective specials celebrating Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary. The specials first aired earlier this year on BBC America, and the set features interviews and clips that will take you back through the adventures of the Fifth (Peter Davison), Sixth (Colin Baker), Seventh (Sylvester McCoy), and Eighth (Paul McGann) Doctors. That’s 15 years of the time lord’s adventures, stretching from 1981 – 1996. Even cooler, this DVD collection follows each Doctor’s special with an adventure from their run: Earthshock, Vengeance on Varos, Remembrance of the Daleks, and the 1996 Doctor Who TV movie that aired on Fox. This collection finally wraps up the years of the “classic” Doctors, with the next moving into the modern era.
