NFT: Recommend a TV Series on Netflix

Grey Pilgrim : 8/15/2019 8:39 am
I've only watched Breaking Bad, Stranger Things and the Last OG.

All were excellent imo.

Anyone have any other suggestions?

TIA

I love that factory. What the fuck to they make in there that it belches fire into the street every 15 seconds?
Ozark  
Pete in CO : 8/15/2019 9:48 am : link
...good casting. strong plot. Seasons 1-2 on NFLX, with Season 3 coming in mid-Fall.
Others have been mentioned already:
Narcos
Peaky Blinders
Better Call Saul - a must if you liked Breaking Bad.

I always wonder that too. I thought it was car parts.
Shameless.

was great. I guess i was late to the game on it.

It's a show about a post WW1 crime family in Birmingham, England

4 seasons so far, with a 5th supposedly to be released this month.


I second this. Great show. Longmire is really good as well. Highway through hell (??) Was also good
I forgot all about Ozark  
Greg from LI : 8/15/2019 10:11 am : link
It's a good rather than a great show, but Ruth is a great character. The actress playing her (forget her name) does a terrific job.
Highly recommend "The Good Place"  
RomanWH : 8/15/2019 10:17 am : link
This show is funny, upbeat, and a good palette cleanser after GoT. 2 seasons on Netflix. It's about Kristen Bell's character, Eleanor, waking up to find herself in the afterlife called "The Good Place", a perfect paradise community run by Ted Dansen's character, Michael. Only problem was Eleanor doesn't deserve to be there. She was an asshole on Earth and she has to figure out how to try to fit into this community of selfless, morally perfect people while hiding her true identity.

I also just finished Parks & Rec. All 7 seasons on Netflix. Pretty funny all the way around. Like most sitcoms, really hits its stride in the later seasons. Plenty of callback jokes. Aubrey Plaza and Chris Pratt are awesome and Ron Swanson is my spirit animal.
Black Mirror

I don't associate Shameless with Netflix, but definitely.

Nervous how they will deal with the departure of two of my favorites.
The OA  
moze1021 : 8/15/2019 10:51 am : link
Shocked no one has mentioned...

2 seasons in so far..quick watch.. incredible acting, incredible story...

One of my 2 favorite shows of all time already, with The Leftovers being the other.
No one mentioned The 100 or The 4400. I enjoyed both of them.  
fredgbrown : 8/15/2019 10:55 am : link

Thanks guys!  
Grey Pilgrim : 8/15/2019 10:59 am : link

Leftovers definitely in my top 5 shows ever, possibly higher. I enjoyed the OA. It was just cancelled, however.
I also liked to a lesser degree The 3% and Travelers .

That actress was in 'The Americans' and played the teenage girl Philip was using to get information from her military father.

She was AWESOME in Ozark. Seriously evil, that one!

Netflix just cancelled the OA
British show  
Jints in Carolina : 8/15/2019 11:47 am : link
Bodyguard. Only 6 episodes but very good.
Fave shows on netflix  
tyrik13 : 8/15/2019 11:48 am : link
Wu Assassins, Umbrella Academy, New Sabrina, Stranger Things, Sense 8, Black Mirror, 13 Reasons Why, On My Block, Love Death & Robots just to name a few. If youíre into anime I suggest Baki, kenshan ashura, Ultraman, Hunter x Hunter, Godzilla 1,2,3; Iíll list more later
Yes, she was very good as Kimmy on The Americans!  
Greg from LI : 8/15/2019 11:52 am : link
And a completely different character too, so naive and sheltered where Ruth is so, well, ruthless.
The Naked Director  
widmerseyebrow : 8/15/2019 11:56 am : link
I think it's just going to be a miniseries, but I thought it was pretty hilarious. It's a semi-biographical comedy about a guy in Japan who goes from an encyclopedia salesman to a porn director who pushes the limits.
most of the good ones covered already...  
J : 8/15/2019 12:15 pm : link
My wife and I enjoy "Grand Designs". They only have a couple seasons available at a time, though. Also, most of the NOVA (PBS) shows.

Might now be your thing but she's in "Dirty John" with Eric Bana and Connie Britton - its based on the podcast that came out a couple years back. First and foremost, Connie is unreal hot but the actress that plays Ruth is in it (Connie Britton's daughter) and shes just as good in it playing a SoCal girl.
I also forgot to mention the Americans...

Anything Jody Hill/Danny Mcbride I'm down. Footfist Way, Eastbound and Down, Vice Principals, I even like Observe and Report (an underrated dark comedy).

Good call, she is the most interesting character whenever she is on screen.
Peaky Fucking Blinders. I have no idea why this show isn't MORE  
ChaChing : 8/15/2019 1:01 pm : link
popular given the much lesser stuff the masses eat up. Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy, Sam Neill, Aiden Gillen, Adrien Brody all fantastic, and the lesser known names (to me) are great - the brothers, Aunt Pol...great show

a few repeat names:
Better Call Saul
Narcos
Ozark
Bloodline
Longmire - particularly if you like westerns

A few others:
Turn - American Revolution Spies...loved it
Marco Polo - also very underrated IMO
Sherlock - long eps, a bit 'thinky,' but I enjoyed the first 2-3 seasons
Frontier - the criminal world of fur pelts, pretty good
Ripper Street - post Jack-the-Ripper cop...
The Last Kingdom - sort of related to the story in 'Vikings,' entertaining
Damnation - only 1 season but liked it a lot fwiw, even tho it ends on a season cliffhanger then got cancelled. Western
Battle Creek - Dean Winters in a cop comedy. It's a decent light watch
if you like Ricky Gervais, he has a few shows on netflix right now  
Gordo : 8/15/2019 1:48 pm : link
in addition to his stand up specials.

After Life - he plays a writer for a free local newspaper and his wife just died. it's a drama with a lot of funny bits. sweet and honest

Derek- plays an autistic man working at an old folks home in london. Absolutely great show, Funny, sweet, great message. i've gained huge respect for gervais as an actor.

Extras-(Just started this one) His early work from 2006, plays an actor trying to get work as an extra. Great cameos from real life actors, like Kate Winslet and Ben Stiller.
Altered Carbon if youíre into Science Fiction  
TurdFurguson : 8/15/2019 2:10 pm : link
Great series.
Not sure if anyone mentioned The Crown  
AnnapolisMike : 8/15/2019 2:12 pm : link
Lots of good stuff
Watched vampire diaries with my daughter  
eli4life : 8/15/2019 2:26 pm : link
First 3-4 seasons were good before they went off the deep end. But we decided to continue with the originals that show I enjoyed a lot more than I thought I would. Then we started the third show legacies oh boy itís like they merged the last few seasons of vampire diaries with the librarians couple episodes in and thereís already been a dragon and a gargoyle running around. Not my cup of tea but she likes it so Iíll bear with it.

You think? I was absolutely onboard after watching that episode. Unfortunately I haven't watched many since, but mostly because of too many other damn things to watch.

Godless is one of the best shows I have seen on Netflix.

Castlevania is a fun series, it's animated but not a kid show.

Previously mentioned.....Peaky Blinders and Altered Carbon both great shows.

I recently started watching Rake, enjoyed the 1st season so far.

At first...you ruined my night...

But I don't buy that it's really canceled. I'm going with the fan theory that it's a stunt... Too good of a show, reviews too strong.. it can't be over.
Thanks for the recs  
ChaChing : 8/19/2019 1:56 am : link
started Altered Carbon, real interesting sci-fi. It was already on the list. As was Godless, tho I haven't gotten there yet

Roman thanks for "The Good Place." Someone suggested it once but this got me to try it. Cheesy, sitcom and all, but pretty mutha-forkin' funny. Ep 1 just 5 min in, the good & bad actions ledger Ted Danson explains is fantastic. "Fix a tricycle for a kid who is indifferent to tricycles...+0.04. Being a Yankee fan...-101.01"

I'm not a big lol-er yet this has it's moments & so far, end of ep 3 was hysterical
Does anyone know if Stranger Things will be back?

Ill watch it it's back, but expect not too much. I feel like each season was worse than the last.

Season 3 Stranger Things -  
x meadowlander : 8/19/2019 11:13 am : link
I thought it was awful. Kept waiting - all the positive stuff I've read, figured it would improve. Nope. Terrible season, I'm done.

Stupid, Scooby Doo predictable plotlines, atrocious writing and acting though the multidimensional lava vagina was intriguing and a good analogy of the giant stinking, flaming queef that season was.
