Mine is House Of Cards, me and DH are binge watching it. There is only 2 episodes left to watch sad. It's so fantastic, me and DH talk about it constantly.
I'm utterly obsessed with Robin Wrights character in it. I want to be her, all I need to do is lose a few stone and grow a few inches, get a whole new wardrobe and learn to walk in high heels all day. No probs.

Im embarrassed to admit this but at the moment Im obsessed with 'are you the one' on MTV grin

maillotjaune Sat 15-Mar-14 21:01:35

Salamander. And it's about to end sad

PennySillin Sat 15-Mar-14 21:03:55

At the moment it's Revenge on Sky Go.

Cocolepew Sat 15-Mar-14 21:07:26

DD binge watching Supernatural. I know everything about it , but I haven't watched a single episode hmm.

Gigondas Sat 15-Mar-14 21:07:55

Montalbano and greys anatomy

VeryStressedMum Sat 15-Mar-14 21:10:00

I have had so many obsessions, luther, the killing, sherlock, homeland...at the moment I'm pretty obsessed with the following. Also real housewives of new jersey. And bakery boss.

ihatethecold Sat 15-Mar-14 21:10:19

We have just started with house of cards, liking it so far.
I also love The real housewives. I know it's trash but I love it.

Also atm, Hostages.

MrsPresley Sat 15-Mar-14 21:10:29

The Blacklist, love love love it!

And James Spader is soooo sexy and gorgeous smile

Although I don't fancy him in anything else confused

Also love The Chase

Cocolepew Sat 15-Mar-14 21:15:19

Oh you're lucky ihatethecold envy.
I'm just about to watch the last 2.

LightastheBreeze Sat 15-Mar-14 21:24:52

Hostages atm

Bearmonkeysmum Sat 15-Mar-14 22:16:49

Hannibal for me

Also quite liking Once upon a time, oh is not happy that I am filling the recording space with though, there are loads!

None, sadly, there just doesn't seem to be anything on that's very gripping at the moment.

NickNacks Sat 15-Mar-14 22:18:25

TheNumberfaker Sat 15-Mar-14 22:19:48

Used to be Lost. Can't stop thinking about it since tgat Malaysian plane went missing!

southeastastra Sat 15-Mar-14 22:19:52

we're getting sky soon so hopefully i will find something

at the moment i like hair on bbc three and that's about it grin

SantasLittleMonkeyButler Sat 15-Mar-14 22:34:30

I actually watch very little TV but my two "can't miss" programmes are Boardwalk Empire (when it's on, obviously) and Stella.

bruffin Sat 15-Mar-14 22:36:33

Me too nicknacks

Innocentbystander01 Sat 15-Mar-14 22:38:03

Breaking bad
Orange is the new black
True blood
Sons of anarchy

University Challenge is required viewing in the slug household

HazeltheMcWitch Sat 15-Mar-14 23:00:17

I don't often get really into shows, but I am LOVING Line of Duty.
Also loving the accompanying thread.

Stripyhoglets Sat 15-Mar-14 23:23:42

Game of Thrones and Mad Men, absolutely hate that they are only on Sky now so I have to wait to watch the next lot!

Bonkerz Sat 15-Mar-14 23:27:26

Dead zone
Beauty and the beast
Dance mums
Honey boo boo

Cocolepew Sat 15-Mar-14 23:29:53

Well, thats House of Cards over <sobs> moving onoto Orange Is The New Black.
DD 1 loves Once upon A Time and is gutted that no channels have picked up season 3.
I'm loving Line Of Duty too.

Shoopshoop2 Sat 15-Mar-14 23:38:46

Game of Thrones!

RedBlanket Sat 15-Mar-14 23:50:28

I've just got into Breaking Bad.
i'm trying my best with Game of thrones, but there's too many characters who look the same and I can't remember who belongs with which family.

Trash TV wise, FastnLoud and Man vs Food

Cocolepew Sat 15-Mar-14 23:54:52

I don't fancy GoT, DH was mad on Breaking Bad but, I lost interest half way through season 3.

RonaldMcDonald Sat 15-Mar-14 23:58:46

Blacklist is utterly brilliant
Loved - True Detective, Line of Duty, Scandal, Justified,
Orange Is the NB, house of lies, house of cards

Deckmyballs Sun 16-Mar-14 00:05:40

Breaking bad!

Cocolepew Sun 16-Mar-14 00:20:18

I would have loved to see True Dective but we have just left Sky for BT.

VeryStressedMum Sun 16-Mar-14 00:46:05

Oh yes oh I've been watching hostages, it's very good. I also love modern family.

VeryStressedMum Sun 16-Mar-14 00:49:15

When I get a chance I'm going to watch series 1 of the bridge, it's supposed to be very good.

ihatethecold Sun 16-Mar-14 06:52:19

What is orange is the new black about?
I've got netflix and once hostages and line of duty are over I will need something new to watch.

Innocentbystander01 Sun 16-Mar-14 08:19:30

OITNB is based on a blog a woman wrote after spending a year in prison. It is very very funny but also has a brilliant storyline and an amazing cast.

guineapiglet Sun 16-Mar-14 08:22:16

sons of Anarchy

loving Breaking Bad

WowserBowser Sun 16-Mar-14 08:30:07

The Bridge

Shoopshoop2 Sun 16-Mar-14 10:42:40

I don't fancy GoT

Neither did I,as I don't really go for fantasy,but it's powerful stuff. The 'no expense spared' production,turns each episode into a short film.

So looking forward to the next season of SOA too.

vichill Sun 16-Mar-14 11:03:37

hannibal -Danish guy is spellbindingly beautiful. to the extent I'm jealous of his victims.

In the line of duty on BBC is surprisingly compelling

Cocolepew Sun 16-Mar-14 11:08:26

They, occassionally, shot GoT down the road from me ,maybe I should walk past with a Hello Munsnet poster.

RonaldMcDonald Sun 16-Mar-14 11:11:10

yes, all scandi stuff from bbc3. The Bridge, The Killing, Borgen
Spiral was also excellent <French>
All brilliant and with brilliant women

I liked Breaking Bad very much but I think it is harder to sustain complete excellence over so many series and so it had its ups and downs. Generally brilliant
Loved the West Wing at the time
Sopranos adored

McFlurry Sun 16-Mar-14 11:14:25

I've just binged on Orange is the New Black and have just started on Justified to kill time until Game of Thrones S4 starts.

Also loving My Mad Fat Diary on E4. Really underrated show, IMO. Plus it has an amazing 90s soundtrack.

Anybody know when SoA is due back on UK TV?

Wondering if I'd like House of Cards? What's it about?

WowserBowser Sun 16-Mar-14 13:38:48

Yes to all things Scandinavian! Loads of talent.

I love Saga. Loved The Killing and all Girl with...films.
I may have to give Borgen a go but we've got breaking bad to finish. Just finished series 3. And have True Detective to start.

cherryhealey Sun 16-Mar-14 14:14:23

The Smoke
Line of Duty

Save it all up for whatever week end evening I am at home.

miffybun73 Sun 16-Mar-14 17:02:45

Line of Duty.

LetZygonsbeZygons Sun 16-Mar-14 17:40:02

Sons of anarchy! mainly because of Ratboy

Cocolepew Sun 16-Mar-14 18:02:44

McFlurry HofC is about a ruthless Congressman, and his equally ruthless wife. It's set in the White House.

McFlurry Sun 16-Mar-14 18:43:59

Thanks, Coco. Is it difficult to follow? I like well written things but they need to be easy to follow or I spend the whole episode asking stupid questions...'who's that? Why are they doing that? Where are they now?' etc, etc. Drives DP nuts....

invicta Sun 16-Mar-14 18:47:26

Dh loves Line of Duty.

Dcs love Big Bang Theory.

Yama Sun 16-Mar-14 18:50:01


I'm watching an episode a night at the moment. However, at 20+ episodes a season and 5 seasons, I'm alright for a while.

Cocolepew Sun 16-Mar-14 19:16:35

It can be if you arent sure on US politics, congress and the senate, whipping votes etc. I looked stuff up and got on ok, though some off it went over my head. It didnt make any difference to my enjoyment of it.

spanky2 Sun 16-Mar-14 19:16:42

Mad men. Love it. When I watch something else I think I could be watching mad men.

Cocolepew Sun 16-Mar-14 19:18:00

We only got Netflix a few months ago, its brilliant for binge watching !

I'm loving Breaking Bad at the moment, but it does have it's ups and downs.

I really enjoyed the original, British House of Cards, with the knowing looks to camera, etc. Is the US version as good?

Shoopshoop2 Sun 16-Mar-14 21:08:33

I was loving West Wing,until there was too much of the bore that is Toby.

Cocolepew Sun 16-Mar-14 23:08:03

I never saw the Uk house of cards so I cant compare.

Another favourite atm is Southland, on more4.

dolallymum Mon 17-Mar-14 10:09:37

I am obsessed with The Good Wife.
Watching it on Netflix, and honestly can not wait until I get the next opportunity to sit and watch another episode.

TheBitterBoy Mon 17-Mar-14 10:13:35

I'm obsessed with Scandal, can't wait for it to be back on. House of Cards is based on a uk tv series from the 90s which was also brilliant.

TulipOHare Mon 17-Mar-14 19:00:01

Currently watching Scandal and end every episode looking like this shock shock shock . Very cliffhangery.

Game of Thrones
Breaking Bad

ShellyF Mon 17-Mar-14 19:01:51

Criminal Minds

crazynanna Mon 17-Mar-14 19:04:42

Little House on the Prairie on True Entertainment on Saturday mornings blush

Sparklysilversequins Thu 20-Mar-14 23:59:33

I can't say my current one it's too embarrassing but it's on MTV so that will probably give some indication of its level.

Looking forward to Game of Thrones and Mad Men starting soon though. Nothing as good as those on.

WowserBowser Fri 21-Mar-14 07:53:18

Is it Catfish? Teen mom?
