Are there any shows out there any of you would recommend binge watching?
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 :
My Name Is Earl
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
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.
Some great lists, here are some of the shows me and m'lady have binged on, highlighted particular goodies:
