Now we have Netflix, but I don't know what to watch. We have been through all our fave films, old series like Spooks, watched enough House to become bored by it, and so much forensic I could probably solve most crimes myself by now.l

I see they now have Green Wing but I'm saving that to watch with dd.

I don't like rom com, horror or gruesome stuff. Don't mind blood.

Need recommendations!

Im watching between and really liking it. Its about a town where everybody over the age of 21 is killed by a virus.

I also like that 70s show and orange is the new black.

Orphan Black is fantastic! Also recommend Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, nice and light hearted 😃

How to get away with murder and crazy ex girlfriend are good.

House of Cards is brilliant.
So is Breaking Bad but the first 4 episodes are challenging so stick with it at the beginning

Hated Orange is the New Black. I know it has had great reviews but I hated it

Currently watching OITNB and House of Cards

Thanks everyone.

I've started watching Stranger Things, got up to episode 2, and enjoying it.

I saw House of Cards when it was a tv series way, way back - 80s? It was fabulous, so I'm not sure how much I would enjoy a modern remake (and it's American?).

Started Breaking Bad. Hated the actor and really couldn't push myself beyond the first episode - everyone in it annoyed me! You say it gets better?

I have barely heard of the others, so I'll be looking at all of your suggestions. Plenty to keep me going there smile

Thank you.

Bloody brilliant! Can't wait for series 2

A guy running a specialist cleaning company (think deaths in homes, suicides, accident victims etc) gets embroiled in a life of cleaning up crimes on the wrong side of the law...

Really crap synopsis of mine for a fabulous series!

And stranger things 😄
