MN'ers, I need help.
I am a series junkie and love the likes of real & desperate housewives, the oc, gossip girl & one tree hill.
Finally managed to persuade DP to watch a series with me and breaking bad came highly recommended by pretty much everyone I speak to. So we were enthralled but now we have sadly finished the final episode. Is there anything out there similar in terms of gripping tv suitable for us both to watch (he hates my usual stuff). Preferably available on netflix? I want to try and introduce something new while he is still interested to watch a series as it took 3 years to get him to try bb.
Thanks in advance smile

The Wire. By far and away the best series ever. Can't recommend it highly enough.

West Wing, if you haven't already seen it.

I found The West Wing a bit dated, tbh. Have you looked at Orange Is The New Black ? Lillehammer is excellent, as is The Bridge. We both enjoyed The Killing too.

House of Cards is good if you haven't already seen it ...

The Good Wife is good. Glossy but surprisingly gripping. And often funny.

Damages. I loved it, all 5 series available on Netflix.

What about Dexter or Fringe?

Or even Prison Break or 24.

I second The Bridge, it is fantastic. How about 24 or Californication?

Definitely Prison Break, 24 and Dexter as mentioned upthread. I'm going to try the original House of Cards next.

DP and I were big BB fans and have struggled to find anything as good. However Orange got us hooked and it's worth sticking with as the characters really build through the series.

Now we're in the what next gap too! I wasn't keen on Sons of Anarchy, but quite liked a couple of episodes of Justified. Also love all the Scandinavian series so Lillehammer definitely on the list.

justified is brilliant. Brilliant. and we loved BB... but Raylan??? Timothy Olyphant....what more do you need!

love Sons of Anarchy as well .....

I second Justified. Deadwood too, is brilliant. Sons of Anarchy is great as well. The Wire was great and Breaking Bad, sniff, I miss it so much. Will I hate House of Cards if I hated the West Wing. Political thrillers bore me rigid?

The Good Wife is getting better and better in my opinion
