Morning, I'm new to Netflix and all that stuff- we're almost finished breaking bad (series 5 episode 5 tonight!) ... Facing into the black hole that will appear when we wont have 2 episodes of BB to watch every night, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions please?

I've been watching a bit of Orange is the new black which I really like, and DH has already watched all of house of cards and Lillehammer (I work late a lot so he got through loads of them!)

Anyway in case any of you had any recommendations based on the above, id be most grateful! Thanks

We've gone old school and are going through 24. There's about 8 series or something, so will keep us busy!

Also, when DH is out, I'm getting through Gossip Girl!

Prison Break is keeping us occupied since we got it as a present on Christmas day. It's brilliant.

I'm half way through Season 2 of Breaking Bad and loving it. If you enjoyed that, try Dexter - it was amazing!!!

Fringe, Orphan Black. My two favourite shows currently. Best given without any spoilers at all - just watch the first episode and see if you get hooked.

Have you seen Parenthood? That's great too, more feel good though, less gritty.

Dexter,for sure.
Boardwalk Empire
The Sopranos
The Shield
The Wire

Check the Digital Spy forum for many more smile

Ooh thank you all! I love getting teeth stuck in to something new and gripping! Will check these all out. Doesn't have to be gritty, not for me, anyway- I like a bit of feel good stuff too! Thanks again

The 4400
Sons of anarchy
Prison break
The good wife
Nurse jackie

Are all really good

How could I forget Sons of Anarchy,or Game of Thrones?
For lightness,Curb Your Enthusiasm,Transparent,and (can't believe anyone missed this perfection) Frasier.

Definitely The Wire, keeping DH and me very entertained (thank you MIL!)

Second orphan black. It's fab smile

I've just got through the first 3 seasons of scandal. Really good, and not what I was expecting (a political drama) as it's much more twisted.

Not sure if it's on Netflix but I loved Vikings

Car1sberg I watched the first ep of this today, it's brilliant and a UK drama is a nice change from all the US box sets on NF

I liked Nurse Jackie and am enjoying The Good Wife.
