It's on Amazon Prime not Netflix, but Motzart in the Jungle, sex drugs and classical music is good.

+1 on Peaky Blinders. Bit of a slow start but after 2-3 episodes gets very good. Good cast. I started watching Narcos which wasn't too bad but pretty disjointed series. Currently watching Luther waiting for PB series 2 to get to Netflix. Luther is excellent. Apart from that I don't watch anything.

If I have time to watch TV, I have time to practice, so I do that instead. Quite honestly, I have not sat down and actually watched a full 30 or 60 minute program on TV in over five years. My TV encounters have simply involved walking through a room where others are mesmerized by it.

none... do not like TV. If I watch something (maybe) - it will be documentary, good movie, nature. Series are boring and even when I watched some a little - I always can say what will be next, where it is going to etc. No Thanks - No TV!
I'd better speak by music...Please listen it on Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, etc. Thanks!

Haven't see a bad original Netflix series yet. Daredevil is my personal favorite.

We couldn't get past the first episode in Peaky Blinders. Maybe it gets better. I think it is set up in a pretty complicated way, and perhaps once you establish who is who, what the context is, etc. it gets better. That said, I don't watch many series, and fairly few movies. Despite having gotten sucked into Longmire, I probably wouldn't have watched it except that my husband keeps putting it on.It is funny because I can stay absorbed in a novel for hours, and get bored and wander off if my husband is watching a movie. They last too long for my limited sttention span and most are too violent/sad/scary, and I have enough stress in my life right now. I do sometimes watch the Great British Baking Contest, although I am watching my calories and my sugar consumption so I wouldn't actually eat most of what they are baking. (I bake low sugar.) i can't watch more than one episode at a time, though.

I felt the same way, thought it was a bit slow, but 3 onwards I found it got a lot better. You mention the bake off, I really enjoyed the pottery throwdown. Much prefer watching people make things that aren't going to be eaten or binned right away :D

Too bad there's only the one season of Great British Baking Contest right now. We really enjoy that one too. We quote it all the time in the kitchen now.

Liked Hell on Wheels and House of Cards but especially Marco Polo. A major bingewatcher.

Recently watched Narcos and The Last Kingdom and enjoyed both. But I think Breaking Bad is on Netflix, if you haven't seen it.

London Spy. Great acting, sometimes uncomfortable, slow storytelling, unexpected plot twists. Wow!

Enjoying The Crown. Sort of like Downton Abbey in Buckingham Castle.

One Punch Man. The subtitles get a bit out of sync around episode 5, but I hear they are working on a fix.

Jack Taylor - Irish (Scotish?) former cop turned detective, solving crimes each episode. Tough guy but not that tough, street smart, sometime alcoholic,
very entertaining.

Hell On Wheels.

Mindhunter. In the late 1970s two FBI agents expand criminal science by delving into the psychology of murder and getting uneasily close to all-too-real monsters. Fascinating!
