I'm signed off sick for six days.
I have access to Netflix and all the iPlayers and the internet.
What should I be watching?
I don't think I have time for a twelve series epic, but I can certainly crack on with some good tv.
I loved: the wire, game of thrones, OITNB, making a murderer, Xfiles. Gossip girl, pretty little liars etc.

Any suggestions?

The west wing - best programme ever. Goes on for 8 seasons.

Kevin Spacey version of House of Cards is brilliant.

Flowers on All4 aired a couple of weeks ago (only 6 episodes)

Ray Donovan (not sure if it is on Netflix tbh)

Speedy recovery btw flowers

iZombie is really good fun, definitely worth a watch.

Jessica Jones is also pretty good.

House of Cards for sure! I have just finished it and I'm gutted I have to wait a year for the next series! Other than that maybe orange is the new black or the good wife?

peaky blinders. season 3 on bbc2 now but 1 and 2 on Netflix. Cillian murphy is great in it ( as an actor- and also rather fanciable).

The Night Manager
The People vs OJ Simpson

Wishing you a speedy recovery

Breaking bad for sure.
Wayward Pines is shaping up well.
Jessica Jones yes
Give American Horror Story a miss, it ran out of steam fast.
Bates Motel- love it. Very well plotted and Vera Farmiga is outstanding as Motherrrrr!

And Once upon a Time is gorgeous.

Breaking bad over anything else.

The only problem with BB is that its like drinking a very fine wine. You're ruined for anything less. Took me ages to not think everything else was crap grin

I also kind of wish i was still in the lovely position of not having seen it yet, iykwim!

Breaking bad was good...but the wire is better!
I'll have a look at your suggestions a bit later on smile

Fargo is incredible and on netflix , leftovers is amazing but I don't know where you will find it.
The wire is definitely better than breaking bad grin

So 6 days over. What have you watched and how would you rate it?

Glitteryfrog Sun 15-May-16 21:59:32

Nothing!
I had the concentration and sleep habits of a toddler. (After effects of anaesthetic and mega painkillers) so I had lots of afternoon naps and watched homes under the hammer and people moving to Spain programmes.
I also had visitors and got taken out for coffee.
Now I'm feeling better I shall keep the recommendations on file and work through them.

Cleebope Sun 15-May-16 22:07:21

Haha - the plans of mice and men and all that. Glad you are better but if you haven't watched The Walking Dead you ain't lived. Plus Andrew Lincoln will get your blood flowing better and thus aid recovery. Not on Netflix though.
