Hi, but behind with the times I know, but we've just got Netflix and was Hoping for some suggestions.
I end up scrolling for ages without choosing anything!
I like series like homeland, doctor foster, not really into comedy.
Any ideas....?

Breaking bad. I wish I hadn't speed watched as would like to watch again

Currently enjoying Strange Things. There is a thread on it in Telly Addicts.

Love Homeland! Season 6 is airing soon, so hopefully season 5 will be on Netflix soon.

I love Californication. Just at the end of Season 7 and can't bear to watch the last ones sad

I'd second Strange Things. Also Grace and Frankie and Between.

Breaking Bad, Dexter, Stranger Things, sons of Anarchy, orange is the new black (first series brilliant, gradually gone downhill since IMHO)

The good wife is excellent, absolutely loved it - law drama, v powerful female characters. Also enjoyed how to get away with murder - a bit 'younger' but again law drama. Orange is the new black also absolutely incredible - funny but also heartbreaking and really topical/perceptive. Luther is good too if you like homeland. Just finished season 4 of orange is the new black and was absolutely floored by it, amazing tv, read about black lives matter then watch!!!!

Love The Good Wife to. Amazing show.

We're watching Let's Kill Ward's Wife. It's pretty dark, but sharply observed and funny. Footling around on IMDB it looks like a project between friends - they're all related by marriage or blood, except for Donald Faison. If anyone can work out the link, do enlighten me.

Orphan Black is fantastic esp S1 but all seasons are very watchable.

Stranger Things - had only watched 2 eps but v good so far. Sense8 was great too.

Blackfish is an amazing documentary

On balance, there was an undercurrent of misogyny to Let's Kill Ward's Wife that left a bad taste in my mouth, but it was well done and we were enjoying it up to the point of the murder. DH said it had 'jumped the shark' at that point and went to bed. I think he had the right idea.

Suits! Absolutely love suits, witty, clever, comical and a bit of sexy!

I can second the Good Wife and Homeland

Can't believe no-one's mentioned Crazy Ex-Girlfriend! Seriously, it's amazing, a really funny comedy with awesome songs. Watch it everyone!

House of Cards, House MD, Good Wife, Suits.

Making a murderer is interesting.

skippy67 Mon 22-Aug-16 21:24:16

House of Cards

JedRambosteen Mon 22-Aug-16 21:31:20

Just watching the finale of Between. It's hokey but alright.

Soggyflatjack Mon 22-Aug-16 21:38:46

The wire
Orange is the new black
Breaking bad - I don't rate this much but lots do
The good wife
Power - really good and LOTS of juicy sex scenes
The killing - currently watching. Acting very bad but the story line is good. Only on eps 3.

I will let you know if I remember any more.

With compliments from a

Netflix whore

Enjoy. You will never sleep the way you did before Netflix

I loved narcos

GladysKravitz Tue 23-Aug-16 17:05:54

Oh yes Narcos is ace.

pastizzi Tue 23-Aug-16 21:15:27

Narcos was incredible. And season 2 starts next Friday!!

Sons of Anarchy is also amazing, and am currently in heaven, working my way through Friday Night Lights
