Sorry if this has been done to death! I start maternity leave in 3 weeks so need some tv to binge watch when I cba to get up and also some lighter viewing that doesnt require too much following/concentration for middle of the night feed sessions and when I'm exhausted!

Breaking bad was my favourite boxset ever (might rematch it actually). Generally I can't seem to get in to other things I've been recommended like prison break, suits and dexter. I thought House was ok, nothing to rave about.

I've done PLL. Couldn't get in to gossip girl.

Currently just started broadchurch.

Any more?

Oh and I loved OITNB!

For light stuff, I like My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, both Netflix.

Good luck with your baby.

Something more involving, I think they've just added Mad Men to Netflix.

Jessica Jones, Daredevil and Luke Cage. All brilliant - start with Jessica Jones as David Tennant is superb in it. Even if you don't think it sounds like your kind of thing (it really wasn't mine!) just watch.
Also "The Crown" is very good as is "Designated Survivor".

The Crown is really good

Better Call Saul. 2 seasons up and season 3 starting tomorrow. Writers from breaking bad and about Saul the lawyer before breaking bad. It's brilliant

Grace and Frankie is excellent, really funny and easy watching.

I 'third' the Crown!

NapQueen Sun 09-Apr-17 20:53:53

The Crown
Modern Family
Gavin and Stacy

froomeonthebroom Sun 09-Apr-17 20:54:38

Also Bates Motel. Dark, but really good.

Lauraw1989 Sun 09-Apr-17 20:55:35

Doctor Foster

Squeegle Sun 09-Apr-17 20:55:58

Is modern family on Netflix now? I used to love that
I love the Crown too. Also House of Cards , U.K. Version

Ooh I loved doctor foster, watched that when it was on TV. 2nd series coming this year isn't there?

Thanks everyone, keep them coming!

Big Bang Theory... series 1-9 on Netflix, love it!!!

Yeeyeelovesraaraa Sun 09-Apr-17 22:23:28

The OA
Designated Survivor - am part way through & seems good so far.

ggirl Sun 09-Apr-17 23:11:43

I'm loving watching Getting On ...not everyone's cup of tea

Rioja123 Sun 09-Apr-17 23:15:37

Mad men has just arrived.

Another vote for Jessica Jones. David Tennant was just jaw-dropping as Killgrave. Goosebumps just thinking about it.

Kimmy Schmidt was silly but fun.

Gilmore Girls is great and also a bit shit.

Couldn't get into The Crown. I think it was the nagging feeling that there couldnt be anything particularly revelatory as the Royals would have sued.

Lots ppl have already mentioned good ones like Grace & Frabkie, Gilmore Girls but I'll add:

Orphan Black
The Last Kingdom
Designated Survivor (much better than I thought it would be)

TheDrsDocMartens Mon 10-Apr-17 15:19:24

Designed survivor def

acornsandnuts Mon 10-Apr-17 15:27:09

Designated survivor

NinonDeLenclos Mon 10-Apr-17 17:37:10

Is Marseiiles really good Ninon? I have French Netflix and had been wondering about it.

BagelGoesWalking Mon 10-Apr-17 17:52:48

Emily have you seen No Second Chance on Netflix? French version of a Harlan Coben novel. Really good
