It gets better with every episode. About the best thing on Amazon
Does anyone even watch Regular TV?
Netflix, Hulu, and Showtime put TV to shame. Except maybe Big Bang and Rosanne.
Not really. I have DirectvNow but barely use it.
Couldn’t make it through the first episode it was so boring.
Started watching this recently, am digging it so far...
No order here are the ones I've really enjoyed
Peaky Blinders---top 5
Stranger Things---top 5
Santa Clarita Diet---top 5
House of Cards
Recently have made my way through half of Lost in Space and I am really enjoying it.
Also I haven't watched Altered Carbon yet, see a lot of people enjoy it. It is on my waiting list.
We have netflix, but rarely watch it. Thinking of canceling it, not much of interest. Last I watched was Dexter reruns.
I'm sure we are in the minority tho since their stock is soaring.
Possible Light spoilers, nothing specific.
Not too late to turn back.
Congratulations you made it...
I really wanted to like this reboot, it's visually on point, but I find myself not really caring about the character arcs of anyone there. The Dr. Smith character is way too over the top, and it nearly angers me that everyone seems to be fooled. The warning signs are everywhere.
Just binge watched Lost in Space. That was fun. Parker Posey is incredible as Dr. Smith.
In no particular order:
Master of None
House of Cards
I know its not a netflix show but, I am hooked on Vikings of History Channel (it rivals GoT imo). The creator does an outstanding job of intertwining Viking history from the span of 800-1200 AD, it is based off of multiple real Viking warriors/kings. It is also much more accurate and better than the Last Kingdom (still a good show tho). Another great History Channel show is TURN: Washington's Spies, also loosely based off the real ring during the Revolutionary war.
Wow ... i find that show o be the furthest thing from 'boring'. But different strokes for different folks!
Someone else told me they really liked the show but really struggled to get through the first episode. Maybe I’ll give it another go.
Give it another shot.
I will say... it does need subtitles sometimes bc of the accents.
With such strong agreement on Peaky Blinders, I'll need to check it out!
As for Netflix originals, I liked Narcos a lot; but most of the shows on there that I've watched have been foreign (not necessarily by design, but it's turned out that way). In no particular order, ones I've thoroughly enjoyed:
Time in Between--Spanish period piece set in the late 30s/early 40s in Morocco and Spain following a seamstress that becomes a British spy. Blends historical characters with fiction.
Occupied--Norwegian series about a Russian silk glove invasion in the present day (premise is that Europe does nothing and the US had withdrawn from NATO). Watched the first season and it was real good, the second season just came out, so will need to watch soon.
Gran Hotel--Spanish period piece set in the early 1900s; has a murder/mystery thing for most of the seasons. 3 seasons and on the last few episodes now. Definitely enjoyed this one more than I thought I would (and it helps that the lead actress is drop-dead gorgeous).
Honorable mentions: Versailles--this was a British/French production around Louis VIV and his court; entertaining, but not as good as The Tudors, for instance; Generation War--a German show about a group of friends in WWII, shows it from that perspective. Felt a bit lacking in some areas though, almost a bit too contemporary in how a lot of the characters acted and talked, which took away from it.
We seemed to have similar taste... ozark, the killing.
So I went with Broadchurch based on your list. Good call! Great show!!!!!!
No mention of Sneaky Pete? That was pretty good I thought.
Nevermind... I see that is an Amazon Prime show...
Watched a few episodes of Everything Sucks. Music is great and it has some funny stuff going on. The acting isn't great, but it's worth a watch for the nostalgia.
One awful thing about Canada--our Netflix has a different library than America. Has lots of the same shows, but not all the ones that have been referenced in this thread.
