"[S]ome movies and shows I like currently streaming on Amazon Prime Instant Video"

I can't speak to the TV shows--I've seen almost none of them--but I second the movies Michael Greenspan lists. Some of the fine movies listed are Airplane!, The Big Chill, Broadcast News, Clueless, Galaxy Quest, Love and Death(!), Manhattan, Good Will Hunting, Rounders(!!), Searching for Bobby Fischer(!!!), Sling Blade, Three Days of the Condor--"How do you know they'll print it?"--Annie Hall, Kramer v. Kramer, Sleeper, and Serpico.

And special double-bonus credit for The Boys from Brazil. Through the years my wife and I have occasionally imitated the unintentionally comic Sir Larry, doing his best to be a proud Nazi Nazi hunter,--thanks, Doug--exclaiming "I may leaf here today empteeee-handed. But you, you are not goink anyvhere!!"

"Why Your Kids Must Watch ‘South Park’"

Editor-in-Chief of Reason, Nick Gillespie:

Yet South Park is actually the perfect show for kids and not simply because it takes seriously all the travails of grammar school and traffics in obsessions of childhood. Virtually every episode explains how people in charge wield power by whipping up hysteria over nothing, or try to force all of us into the same social or political straitjacket. Yes, there’s a lot of cursing and blue material, but there’s no better classroom for kids to learn the entwined lessons of skepticism toward authority and respecting true diversity of opinion.
