Have only just started watching this and can't believe I've missed it up to now, it's FANTASTIC! I'm about ten episodes into first season. Does it get even better?

Also, if I like this (and loved Breaking Bad), what else would I like?

I loved the first season. The second was ok but not as good, I didn't think.

Watching for other boxset suggestions; I started on the Good Wife which is ok but I've stalled a bit. Not in the same league as Breaking Bad etc. (Although perversely am loving Nashville.) wink

It is brilliant all the way through! I love those and also Suits and 24. And Prison Break. Need to stop adding more. Ok one more, Game of Thrones.

Other than breaking bad? Dexter of course!

LOVE OITNB. The last episode of season 2 was genius. Roll on next Friday!

I loved Dexter.

I thought season 2 was as good though one of the characters is in it less which was a shame.

Good wife is an easy, entertaining watch.

Better call Saul of course if you liked Breaking Bad.

To be fair, I probably liked the second season less because I read the book and whilst season 1 is basically the book (and based on real events), I knew that season 2 is totally made up, and that made me like it less because I'm a bit odd like that and it's probably just my problem! I actually can't remember what the hell happened now, I'll have to brush up before the next one starts... grin

Better call Saul is excellent especially for a BB fan. Have you watched Mad Men, Sopranos?

Love OITNB and really can't wait for next week. I think the second series is just as good as the first, and the ending is just brilliant.

I've never seen Breaking Bad, but everyone who likes OITNB seems to like it, so I'll give it a try.

Best. Show. Ever.

The second season was a lot darker I think, it went a bit more in depth. A bit depressing at times but still good. Apparently season 3 is going to be a bit lighter, more like the first season.

The killing on Netflix is amazing

I loved Orange is the New Black, loved Breaking Bad and loved The Good Wife.

Just started Homeland and I'm hooked already. easy to please

FabulousFudge Sat 06-Jun-15 16:35:55

I love OITNB too! Excited for next weekend and season 3! I also like The Good Wife.

The last episode of season 2 of OITNB was marvellous. I cannot wait for season 3. Will it be released all in one go again?

sherbetlemonD Sun 07-Jun-15 21:54:57

It will be Stinkers yes. I can't bloody wait. I'm even debating pulling a sicky next Saturday wink

sherbetlemonD Sun 07-Jun-15 21:55:47

I'm incredibly jealous that OP has season 2 to watch and by that time she will only have a couple days wait. I've waited over a bloody year.

Gileswithachainsaw Sun 07-Jun-15 21:57:10

Oh ill have to download season 3!!

sherbetlemonD Sun 07-Jun-15 21:59:50

Just read that Season 4 has been confirmed too- I imagine that will be it though. She only got a year in prison so I don't see how they can drag it out longer than that- and IMHO, they shouldn't. Too many shows go down the pan when they go on too long.

Stinkersmum Sun 07-Jun-15 22:00:53

Thanks sherbet. That makes it difficult for me... after being able to binge watch the first two seasons by myself, DH has since watched both seasons and wants me to not binge watch S3 so he can watch it with me in the evening after work. Selfish git.
