I have been laid up with a bad cold for a few days and have probably at least another day or two of boredom ahead. Since baseball season has not started yet (go Red Sox!) I am looking for shows to stream on Netflix. I also have some overseas flights coming up and want to download some shows for them.

I have already binge watched this season of House of Cards, and finished all the seasons of Friday Night Lights. I was about to start Walking Dead (did watch the first episode but I am a big scaredy cat when it comes to horror so I am not sure if I will stick with it) and I was contemplating re-watching all of Breaking Bad.

Are there any shows out there any of you would recommend binge watching?

You might try Sherlock starring Benedict Cumberbatch. I thought it was quite good, but I'm a fan of everything Sherlock Holmes.

I don't get Netflix, but I have HBOgo. Sopranos, Deadwood, Boardwalk Empire, and Game of Thrones. My daughter recommends Netflix Orange is the New Black.

Thanks guys, I had heard good things about the new Sherlock. I agree, Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones are all good. I really liked Orange is the New Black too, I look forward to season 2. I haven't tried Deadwood.

I am on episode 3 of Walking Dead now, still squeamish but curious. I think I may give the Wire on HBO a go too.

Suggested TV series for extended watching:

Try Longmire for a low-key Wyoming sheriff, beautiful scenery, believable cases (each freestanding).

Try Engrenages (French) for majorly gritty series with police having to cover up their mistakes, plus corruption in the judiciary. Five stars from me!

Try Annika Bengtzon (Swedish) for urban newspaper reporter on the crime beat. First episode occurs during the Nobel Prize events.

Try The Protectors (Danish) for a secret-service-like unit that trains together and protects national leaders from terrorism, etc.

Try The Borgias for decadence, sin, and serious corruption in Renaissance Italy.

Ugh, that cold came to visit me not long ago and brought along its cousins, bronchitis and sinusitis. Hope you're on the way to recovery quicker than I was!

I don't have Netflix so I don't know what's available there, but Doc Martin and Call the Midwife on Amazon Prime, and a bazillion documentaries streaming either on Amazon or on PBS, kept me from dying of complete and total misery. What I wished I had (and wasn't sure if Netflix had or not; had I known for sure I would have signed up for a month) was Six Feet Under.

And, uh, yeah, I'm squeamish, so my recommendations may be a bit on the tame side.

Do you have a PS3? Play Demon's Souls and beat it in five days as I've done during my recent nasty cold. Just sat and played. If not, get a copy of the complete series Rome and watch it for some great entertainment and a stand out performance by Ray Stevenson.

If you haven't seen Firefly, you might give it a try– Sci-fi meets old school western.
If you like British humor, try Faulty Towers... hotel run by John Cleese... probably one of the best comedies ever.
Sherlock is excellent!!
We enjoyed Eureka, a town full of science geniuses with a sheriff that is not a genius.
Hope you feel better soon.

I've got Amazon Prime, and took a chance on GRIMM.

Decent mind candy. Can't wait until Season 3 is finished on the network, and therefore free on Amazon Prime.

On Netflix:

The Returned (French Series) - resurrected characters in a character driven story. Part Lost, part Walking Dead, part something else.

State of Play (UK) - political drama mystery. similar to House of Cards.

Remember that you can also while away the time with TWOP since these shows are discussed on Television Without Pity http://www.televisionwithoutpity.com/

There are many shows that I stayed with just because I enjoyed the snark on the forums - Downton Abbey in particular. Then again, there are many shows that I picked up so much that I missed when watching by reading those forums, as well. True Detective comes to mind as one where I apparently was fairly oblivious while watching.

Thanks so much to all of you. It looks like I have a lot of great shows ahead of me. I am sticking with Walking Dead for a few more episodes (though I did have to put thoughts of ukes in my head last night to chase away the zombies in my mind as I fell sleep). :)

Thank you so much to everyone that responded. So far I am halfway into the third season of Walking Dead and now have tons of recommendations for me to download for my upcoming flights.

I figured, for anyone else in a similar boat, I would add my own recommendations:

Breaking Bad
Dexter (through the John Lithgow season- after that all bets are off)
Walking Dead (I am now a Deadhead)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (show, not movie)
Big Bang Theory
Lost (up to the last season, again then all bets are off)
House of Cards
Orange Is The New Black
Friday Night Lights

I'll recommend music shows. Glen Campbell Goodtime, Johnny Cash especially the two (and only two) episodes with Linda Rondstadt. Leslie Uggams had a wonderful show with but 10 episodes.

The Twilight Zone was internetted by CBS, The Shatner was great.

Youtube has lots of Carol Burnett, the GWTW parody had me ROTFLMAO. Or for British humor, Mow the Lawn.

Dragons: Riders of Berk (just finished season 2)
Avengers Assemble (ongoing)

Okay stuff:

The Wire is so good that when i meet people who haven't watched it I am actually jealous that they get to experience it all for the first time. It takes a few episodes to really grab you (its a bit hard to follow at first) but it is truly incredible.

I finished Walking Dead - all caught up in time for tomorrow's season finale. So I started The Wire after that. I have to tell you, I am about four or five episodes in and it hasn't grabbed me yet. I am sticking with it though since it is so universally beloved. I have never heard of anyone that watched it and did not like it.

I really like the Walking Dead (though I do look away at the goriest parts) but nothing has been able to beat Breaking Bad for me yet.

I second lots of stuff especially Lost, Orange Is The new Black, and Farscape but also :

Ted Talks
My Name Is Earl
Weeds
X-Files up to S6
Buffy was awesome until they added the super aggravating little sister from nowhere, arrgh!
Xena is hysterical, sometimes just silly, sometimes moving but Lucy Lawless will grow on you.

Been watching GOT on DVD since we cut the cable, but honestly the books are so far superior. It's good for the great visuals though.

Fun films with a similar theme
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
The Italian Job
Pulp Fiction

I thought I was the only one that would admit to liking Xena. :). But the series finale was a bummer. :(

I totally agree about Buffy, it was a great show, but yep, I hated Dawn. I still would re watch a few of those episodes, namely the one with no dialogue (amazing what a great show can be with not one word of dialogue in an hour!) and I still wish the series finale had been the episode in the psychiatric hospital.

AndrewF
06-06-2016, 07:12 AM
Obviously Buffy and Xena. I watched the whole of Xena in 4 weeks recently. Damn good use of my time!
Twin Peaks, Montalbano maybe, Shameless maybe, Benidorm, Hex (little known Shine production). Yep, My Name is Earl, I vote for that. And Jonathan Creek, although the guy who wrote it often limps along with one foot in the ditch of pretention. (that metaphor may not work. I don't care). Oh, and X-Files. Life on Mars is possible, but I wasn't sure about that one. And Lost, except that the last 15 minutes possibly cancelled out everything that preceded them! If you like esoteric, you could try Fantomas or Les Vampires.

I am finding constantly re-watching all previous episodes of GoT, prior to watching each new episode, a highly constructive way to pass the time :) Also, it means that I can actually keep track of who everyone is...


Also, I think I saw someone mention Peaky Blinders earlier in the thread. If you haven't seen it - treat yourself.

Does it take a while to get rolling? I checked out the first episode based on all the good things I read about it and it didn't really grab me. I'll usually give a show 2-3 episodes before bailing out on it but I was questioning whether I even wanted to continue on to the 2nd episode.

My last binge watch was The Knick, a medical drama set in the Knickerbocker Hospital in New York during the turn of the century. It's astounding how primitive medicine/surgery was in the late 1800s/early 1900s. Clive Owen is wonderful as the troubled but brilliant head surgeon. This isn't a show a lot of people have heard about but it's well worth seeking out. Currently 2 seasons have aired on Cinemax.

Oh yeah, it is excellent - I've seen it and would love to see it again; I should just buy it from iTunes or Amazon. The sad thing about my local library's DVDs and CDs is that I can't play their discs. The only device I have is my iMac, and the library uses some sort of sticker thing (I think it's an anti-piracy measure) that prevents the disc from fitting into the drive. I guess on a traditional drive with a lift-up cover or pull-out tray it's not a problem, but for those of us with computers only it's useless.

Bringing this thread up to the present - the last thing I binge-watched was the miniseries The Night Manager (http://www.amc.com/shows/the-night-manager). Only 6 episodes, which was just about perfect for my short attention span :)

I remember when I first started watching it I was really unhappy about the anachronistic music (mostly Nick Cave and PJ Harvey - so the producers were maybe goths in the 80s?) and the mostly terrible accents (I'm originally from Birmingham myself). But, despite all of this, it has ended up becoming one of my all-time favourite tv shows. I can't remember if it starts slowly... but I would say it's worth sticking with (if you feel so inclined). I can't promise anything but it's possible that we have similar tastes as I was also a big fan of The Knick :)

There are some great performances in Peaky Blinders, both from the main cast and the various guest stars. Tom Hardy as Alfie Solomons really is a treat.

Just re-read this and thought I'd mention Person of Interest.

Also being a little bit of a David Duchovney fan, having been an extremely ardent fan of The X-Files in it's original run (and still enjoying it except for Season 10) I'm at the end of season 3 of Californication and loving it. Since Hank Moody parallels DD himself (brilliant, writer, sex addict but not alcoholic), it fits him pretty well and the character works with his style.

I am off to spend a few hours with finishing up S3 of The Walking Dead though.

I binge watched Dark Matter on NetFlix last weekend. Mostly it was a rehash of various elements from other shows combined into something new. The creativity was in how the parts were assembled. Pretty much like any new show I guess. I liked it well enough to watch all 13 episodes of the first season, and I'm looking forward to when NetFlix posts the 2016 season. I also enjoyed Continuum. Strangely these are both Canadian series. The leads in both shows have interesting resumes - at least according to IMDB.

Others:
Breaking Bad / Better Call Saul
Orange is the new Black
Weeds
Dexter (my wife found this one a little too dark)
Tudors
FireFly, followed by the movie Serenity
I like Person of Interest, but I'm way behind on the broadcast episodes (another one my wife finds to be too dark).

I've watched the first two seasons of Peaky Blinders so far. The non-period music wasn't an issue with me, I think it works. I'm a Yank so I can't really judge the accents though I'm wondering what the heck is going on with the Tom Hardy character's accent. At times I find it very difficult to understand what he is saying. My niggles with the show - the fairly frequent self-references to themselves as the "Peaky Blinders" and Arthur's fairly frequent yelling are kind of annoying. I find Cillian Murphy's faux whisper delivery when speaking kind of distracting. That aside, I like the show and want to continue watching. For me, the show is pretty good but not a compelling watch like dramas of a similar era, The Knick or Boardwalk Empire.

no love for Prison break?

I loved most of the first season. Until they decided not follow the storyline through, but turn it into an almost perpetual series. Halfway through second season I quit it. The plot was totally stalled, it was like they were very careful to make sure that indifferent side stories gave something to show, while carefully making sure that the main plot didn't progress. I don't mind tv shows that focus on side stories, but they shouldn't keep focus on the main story then. Just my humble opinion.

Speaking of TV shows, everybody is stoked about the new Netflix series "Stranger Things".
I can only recommend it, 80s nostalgia with references to a lot of stuff. A bit scary sometimes, in an X-files way.

This past week I have been binge-watching "Another Period" from Comedy Central. It is really out there, I can't tell if I like it or not but something gets me to come back for more. I have to do something until Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Orange is the New Black and House of Cards come back. I actually thought about re-watching Breaking Bad again on the recommendation of a friend that has seen the entire series (I think) six times through. It isn't binging but I have been enjoying "The Night Of" on HBO as well.

I just back-to-backed the first three episodes of 'The Night Of' and am definitely hooked. Some really nice performances. In the absence of both GoT and WD I have been relying on Mr Robot and Ray Donovan for my TV fix. Mr Robot is impressive although kinda dense to just dip into. You really need to pay attention. I enjoy its postmodern vibe - it references lots of other things (most obviously Fight Club but there was a nod to The Man In The High Castle in a recent episode, also I'm sure they used some music from Capricorn One). The easter eggs appeal to my inner geek :) Ray Donovan is a workable mix of family melodrama and gangster-lite. I like the dark humour, and Jon Voight is a legend...

A few months ago watched on Netflix both full seasons of Marvel's Daredevil.

Last weekend on Netflix also burned through the first and only season of Marvel's Luke Cage.

This weekend planning on, yep you guessed it, on Netflix, all so far of Marvel's Jessica Jones...

Another Netflix series that I really enjoyed was Sense8, and I hope it will continue, as the story did not really end yet.

I like the tv/movie adaptations of comic book heroes, whether they adhere to canon or not.

Last November and December, I also binged watched all 143 episodes of the animated series of Star Wars:The Clone Wars, and then all 64 episodes of Star Wars:Rebels in prep for seeing Star Wars:The Force Awakens, and it seems we will be blessed with another Star Wars movie THIS December 2016 once again by the folks at Disney.
