Hi I am looking for inspiration.

Every few months I have 3 days enforced rest with only Netflix to watch. I have watched and enjoyed unforgotten, call the midwife, the a word, the let down.
I need a gentle show that isn t too complicated. Rather than lots of violence and swearing. I Like a gripping crime drama just not too much gore.
I can't watch Netflix at home so need to be able to watch a whole series in the 3 days. Can't wait another 3 months to find out the ending!
Any ideas?

I really enjoyed Safe.

I’ve just watched the first two series of Poldark - absolutely brilliant. Only period drama violence rather than really gritty. Lighter stuff, Crazy ex-girlfriend is good - first series in particular.

I was going to recommend Fauda but I've just seen the no violence requirement. If you do get in the mood for a bit of bloodshed it is brilliant , 12 episodes per series (35 mins long). Israeli production about the Israel/Palestine conflict - subtitled or dubbed.
Have you watched The Good Place, nice gentle rather funny and a bit out of the ordinary or Kimmy Schimdt?

We are watching designated survivor atm and it's quite good .

I second 'designated survivor', really e joyed it. Years ago on sky I watched 'Justified', might be worth searching for that too if it's on Netflix.

I'm watching The Sniffer at the moment and am strangely entranced with it. It's Ukranian so you have to read subtitles, and there is some gore, not really bad stuff but (neat) gunshot wounds and some blood.

Jonathan Creek is also on Netflix, if you fancy something retro.

I was utterly addicted to The Sinner and it’s just one series, although there are some violent scenes. Also enjoyed Safe.

If you want something really light hearted, Schitt’s Creek is very funny and something you can dip in and out of.

Not for this list as it’s complicated grin but Dark is amazing.

Love is good. Third series not as good. And I agree with Other suggestions.

13 Reasons Why - except the last episode which made me sob.

Designated Survivor

The Good Wife

Thank you so much for the suggestions. I actually started designated survivor 2 rounds ago had forgotten that.
I used to enjoy 24.
Will start that from the beginning again. Jonathan creek would be a nostalgic watch too.
I haven't heard of the others so it will be nice and easy to search for them.
Thank you for the suggestions be lovely something new. I.can be a bit wiped out so following complicated plots is a challenge and violent tv at 10am just feels odd!
Thanks again.
