Anyone have any good suggestions for a series on Netflix? I just finished House of Cards and want to start up something new.
I have watched the following:
Orange is the New Black (wife likes it, actually not bad)
Bloodline
House of Cards
Narcos
I was contemplating starting up Man in the high castle on Amazon but curious what everyone else may be enjoying.

Luther - if you haven't seen them yet, I would highly recommend!

Daredevil got rave reviews, if you're into that sort of thing. I've never seen it, but it's supposed to be good.

Anybody who hasn't watched Luther should, it is a level of gritty cop show that would never air on US networks (it's a BBC show). Three seasons, I think they combine to a total of 14 episodes, so you have no excuse for not watching all of them :tu

Detectorists - Great Brit dry comedy
Americans - (If you aren't already watching on FX) Fantastic
Turn - Very good, but....I have a hard time differentiating characters...might be that I haven't paid enough attention since the beginning, but good, nonetheless



Man in High Castle is quite good, however, for me, it nose dived when it pulled the Twilight Zone hi-jinks - as an alternative history it is good - as a dual/parallel universe or time warping 'whatever', it loses me.

Unbreakable: Kimmy Schmidt - If you were a fan of 30 Rock, then you may enjoy this. Created by Tina Fey......very funny imo.

I've heard Peaky Blinders is really good, but haven't watched it yet.

I agree on Daredevil, it was very good. & Punisher has been green lit for a series now :banger

Just finished both seasons of Bosch on Amazon. I enjoyed it, and especially enjoyed seeing some of The Wire cast members reunited.
I still have a hard time wrapping my head around Jamie Hector as a cop. Every time I see him my brain just says Marlo.

Well, sorry, but the binge watching I've done is the original Star Trek, S.T. the Next Generation, The Twilight Zone, and Enterprise. Also NCIS, Criminal Minds, Blacklist, Blue Bloods. This last ones being current, I await impatiently for new episodes to come om Netflix! I have enjoyed them all so far, but have had to grit my teeth on a number of episodes of TNG due to obvious left wing slanting.

Peaky Blinders is Amazing!
The Following with Kevin Bacon
Blacklist with James Spader
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is very funny in my opinion.
Vikings
Marco Polo
Hemlock Grove is dark and awesome
American Horror Story

Granted some of those aren't Netflix Original series, but are still worth the binge watch.

I'll second this. Really enjoyed both seasons. Well cast. Well paced. Well scored.

Looks like 4 seasons, 16 eps. Gotta love BBC nonconformity regarding season lengths :)

I'll rattle off some recommendations here. I don't know if all of them are on netflix specifically or not, netflix doesn't stream where I am.

Marco Polo - LOVE this one.
Turn
Underground
Daredevil for sure
Jessica Jones
heard good things about Peaky Blinders
Man in the High Castle
Deutschland 86
Ash vs Evil Dead
Billions
Ascension - only 3 eps, very good IMO.
Powers - A very different take on the superhero genre. Really liked this one.
Hell on Wheels
12 Monkeys
Longmire
KillJoys
Dark Matter
Humans
Mr. Robot
The Magicians - Brilliant. this is what a threesom between Johhny Depp, JK Rowling, and CS Lewis would look like.
The Expanse - love this one
The Last Kingdom - I really liked this one. Different, very BBC pacing that worked for me.

Maybe these are too old for what you all are listing or looking for, but to me the best was Breaking Bad, then Sopranos. My wife and I just finished all of the episodes of Sopranos and I was slightly depressed when it ended. We also really enjoyed Dexter although a times it gets a tad "soap opery"! Watching House of Cards now a long with Hell on Wheels. Some unbelievable acting in these shows.
