That's it really. I enjoy a good binge watch every so often. DC all all school / nursery. I've done all house work, have dinner on the go.
Now I want to lounge on the sofa with tea and biscuits, and indulge in good telly.
I liked GoT, Dexter (first half only) , Desperate Housewives, Prison Break, Walking Dead as examples.

What should I watch MNetters?

Do you have Netflix? We've just watched Stranger Things which was brilliant. I splurged on the ER box set not too long ago and have yet to have enough spare time to actually watch it, I can't wait though. That'll take me years to plough through

American Horror Story is good (apart from the newest season).

Have you seen Breaking Bad?

Ally McBeal if you like a throwback.

Footballers wives is cheesy and fun.

Orphan Black is gripping.

Oh and Orange Is The New Black.

The Good Wife
Code Black (series 2 just started, but very good)
Inside Obamas White House (4 part BBC)
Boardwalk Empire, my favouritist box set ever
Making a murderer
Stranger Things
Orange is the new black

Jealous that you have so much good telly ahead of you!

SouthernNorthernGirl Tue 08-Nov-16 11:33:58

Ah yes, they were just examples. Also have watched Boardwalk Empire, Stranger Things and Orange is the New Black

SouthernNorthernGirl Tue 08-Nov-16 11:35:14

And Breaking Bad

SouthernNorthernGirl Tue 08-Nov-16 11:36:13

Making a Murderer and Orphan Black sound interesting. ..

Glitch is giod! And Returned (both similar but different enough)
Broad church is also good
I second orphan black too - very good!!

Lorelei76 Tue 08-Nov-16 11:37:24

The Affair for a slightly shorter binge watch - 2 seasons, 12 eps I think
The Night Of - only one season

Body of Proof
latter two having a wee bit more humour!!

Lorelei76 Tue 08-Nov-16 11:37:59

oh Broadchurch season 1 is excellent.
did you watch the Night Manager, that's very good.

Designated survivor- Netflix
White collar

Halt and Catch Fire, all three seasons on Amazon Prime.

And Pushing Daisies is an oldy but a goody, only two seasons, but two seasons of joy and quirkiness.

Both star Lee Pace which has absolutely nothing to do with why I love them, oh no.

If you have Netflix, the expanse is really good. Plus series one of Poldark is on there now.

Justified (Boxset on BlinkBox) is a fantastic show too.

AMR123456 Tue 08-Nov-16 11:45:06

Chicago fire,PD & med are also great!!

OnceMoreIntoTheBleach Tue 08-Nov-16 11:53:43

The good wife is fab!

Offspring on Netflix is amazing smile the characters build so nicely, like Friends did.

Dedicated survived is also great.

SouthernNorthernGirl Tue 08-Nov-16 11:55:56

Checking these all out! I can't find a few of them though.. where can I find these?

RiverTam Tue 08-Nov-16 11:59:07

Pushing Daisies I think you'd have to buy on dvd as its quite old. I think you can get some tasters on YouTube.

jellyhead Tue 08-Nov-16 11:59:50

I've just binge watched Stranger Things on Netflix. Loved it

SouthernNorthernGirl Tue 08-Nov-16 12:01:49

The Killing is very good. I'm watching the US version but I've heard the Danish version is also good.

Homeland looks promising - where can I watch it for free?
