This was the Netflix recommendation roster I had the most fun compiling (it's not every day that having watched so much cult TV comes in handy). Adding to the fun: This list comes with a cherry on top, in the form of some exciting news. HuffPost TV can exclusively reveal that all five seasons of the much-loved NBC spy drama "Chuck" will be available in the U.S. for streaming on Netflix on Nov. 1.

Absolute Beginner Part 1: Chords - Guitar Noise So…you’ve just bought your first guitar, borrowed one from a friend or received one as a gift (and if that’s the case, please introduce me to this person…). Now what do you do? Well, if you haven’t got a clue at all, perhaps we can help you. Guitar Noise welcomes you to the first of our Absolute Beginner articles.

Finally, please realize that as great a tool as the Internet can be for education, it is still only one source. The first thing that you have to know about your guitar is what exactly it does. Chart of Em Chord This is a chord chart. Peace

7 Of The Best Movies For Grownups Hollywood sees you, older moviegoers. In case you haven't noticed, there have been a slew of films in recent years catering to older viewers on issues ranging from love and sex (or lack thereof) after 50 to more somber subjects like coping with loss.

"There's been a realization that the boomer generation still really likes to go to theaters and see movies on the big screen -- and they actually have the money to buy the tickets. "I think it was sort of a no brainer on the part of the studios, to say 'this is a unique audience'," Grant says. For a decade, AARP has been publishing a list of films that appeal to its readers.
