Netflix. Anything worth watching???
Yes, I should have mentioned which shows I’ve watched:)
24 (pity they dropped it)
Better call Saul
Narcos 1&2 (thanks for the heads up on series 3)
The expanse s1
Any idea if they’ll screen series 2 of the expanse?
I quite like the supernatural stuff like ‘true blood’ and, erm supernatural (the winchesters, Crowley etc)Posted 6 months agobobloMember
I’m really late to this party but mainly cos I don’t watch mutch telly. However, we’ve been overdosing on House of Cards this past week and it’s up there with some of the best stuff we’ve seen on telly. Once I’ve finished pigging out on the remaining 4 series, I’ll have a gander at some of the other stuff suggested above.
BTW, I’ve seen a couple of the Shooter episodes and (IMO) it’s a bit lame compared to the really good stuff (HoC, The Americans, Homeland, Fargo, Breaking Bad etc)Posted 6 months agoP-JayMember
House of Cards is brilliant as is Narcos.
Orange is the new black is up and down but still very good.
Better Call Saul is good, but I need to see a few at a go otherwise the pace drives me nuts.
There’s some excellent ‘legacy’ BBC stuff on there too no longer on the iPlayer, Luther, Sherlock, Line if Duty (might be ITV that one).
In terms of quality and VFM Netflix betters Sky/Virgin for me.Posted 6 months agodeadkennySubscriber
Does Netflix do any decent Brit stuff or is all Yank TV?
Problem I find is I can’t just browse to see if I’d like to subscribe, without handing over credit card details for a trail. Also I’m already paying for Amazon.
Only thing that’s slightly got my interest is the new Star Trek: Discovery due on Netflix in UK, but then again everything I’ve seen of it so far (wrong Klingons, big effects battles, JJ’s lens flares, prequel that’s way ahead of TOS technology wise), just makes me convinced I won’t like it (never liked the reboot films and this seems more of the same, regardless of the universe it’s supposedly in). Looking forward to The Orville though. No sign of who will air that in UK.Posted 6 months agofederalskiMember
Few off the top of my head.
Always Sunny in Philly – Brilliant sitcom, I keep rewatching it over and over.
Thick of it – Watched it so many times, brilliant.
Rake – Under the radar Aussie series.
Peaky Blinders – Brilliant moody UK series. Looks great and sounds great.
Trailer Park boys – Another great comedy, keep going back to it.
Skins- Missed it when first shown but excellent Uk series.
House of Cards – As said above, immersive political show.
And my advice don’t start watching Suits or Prison Break, cheesy as hell.Posted 6 months agokcrMember
I enjoyed Detectorists after it was recommended here. Nicely understated comedy. Rick and Morty is very funny and not understated at all! Bojack Horseman was a real surprise for me. Don’t be put off by the fact it is a cartoon about a depressed talking horse…
If, like me, you are very late to the party, The Killing is good (I’ve only watched the Danish original).Posted 6 months ago
Making a Murderer is a must-see. Truth far stranger than fiction.andehMember
For some lighter relief:
Bojack Horseman – sounds naff, but is genuinely beautiful and hilarious.
Rick and Morty – Stick with it, it’s almost perfect, surrealist and deeper than it first seems.
Master of None – Hilarious and perfectly shot/artsy
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – Written by Tina Fey, very 30 Rock
Arrested Development – if you’ve never seen this, now is the time. Perfect, interwoven farse. Probably my favourite show, ever.Posted 6 months agosmogmonsterSubscriber
Ive just started watching Bates Motel, and just finished Dirk Gentlys Holistic Detective Agency which absolutely no-one seems to watch, yet both are excellent, just watched 7 episodes of Bates Motel in 2 days.Posted 6 months ago
Others id recommend along similar lines to the rest are Stranger Things (the best TV series EVER), The OA, Narcos, The Expanse, Marco Polo (though it has been cancelled after 2 seasons), Sense8 (just make sure homophobia isnt your thing). The new Star Trek is coming soon as well. Ozark is next on my hit list. Apparently GLOW is rather good also. Of course House of Cards is great, but looks a little less far fetched than it once did these days. Five Came Back is a great documentary series as well about the Hollywood Directors who documented WW2, very interesting watch.
