    I agree Damages was excellent as was the Killing.

    Another Netflix original that I really liked was The Ranch. The pace of the story is very odd, and the one liners are forced, but after the characters are developed the show feels more sincere. By the third episode I was hooked and it has become my favorite Netflix show thus far.

    We did the killing last year and of course dexter , might check out damages.
    My wife really likes the crown. I'll continue just in case.

    We've put the Queen on hold while we watch The Fall. Interesting and a little twisted.

    I am several episodes into The Frontier, which just got added to Netflix. Pretty good show starring Jason Momoa (aka Khal Drogo, soon to be aka Aquaman). He plays a ruthless trapper, half Irish and half Indian, and he has good reason to hate the British who control the territory.

    It's from Canadian TV, I believe, and is about the fur trading wars between the Hudson Bay Co. and several other outfits trying to take over their territory. Lots of fighting, and infighting, and better than I am making it sound.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned House of Cards -- outstanding political drama that plays it pretty much down the middle... and Kevin Spacy is superb. Probably the best fiction series I've seen on Netflix.

    If you are into vampires/ware wolfs, and are not turned off by sex and gore, Hemlock Grove is pretty interesting as well.

    Hoc is a given, we just need it to come back

    I started and finished the show Versailles a few weeks ago. Pretty great show, in the vein of other period dramas, but a nice dose of house of cards and some good acting.

    For those of you that watch the show Vikings, the actor who plays Louis XIV also portrays the priest Athelstan in Vikings.

    Anybody watch Red Oak yet? We are into it 5 or 6 episodes and so far, it's a freakin' hoot! There is a trailer on you tube somewhere if you are interested.

    @treitz3 I'm a BIG fan of Red Oaks. The second season is even better, glad to hear that you're enjoying it!

    Amazon is doing some great stuff with their web series and (now) movies (e.g. Manchester By The Sea).
  • treitz3treitz3 Posts: 11,903
    Oh, shoot. I forgot that one was on Amazon! My bad. I know this is a Netflix thread....I simply forgot that it was on Amazon (you have to be a Prime member). I apologize about the confusion.

    I'll have to check out Manchester by the Sea.

    Btw, Manchester by the Sea was produced by Amazon Studios, and is still in theaters.

    Brilliant movie! Casey Affleck deserves serious consideration for best actor Oscar. One of the best movies

    . . . I've seen in the last few years.

    I have been digging Narcos and Shameless lately.
  • WillowWillow Posts: 8,663
    Narcos is good. If you like documentaries, watch Cocaine Cowboys 1 and 2. The real Queen of Cocaine makes escobar look like a wimp!
  • treitz3treitz3 Posts: 11,903
    We just put Narcos on our "to watch" list. How many stars out of 5 would you guys rate Narcos? Worthwhile?

    Tom
  • WillowWillow Posts: 8,663
    I'd give it 4*

    Just binge-watched half of Santa Clarita Diet last night. Outstanding dark comedy, as long as you are not turned off by some gore. Very different role for Olyphant as well. Will be watching the other half tonight.
  • Just started watching Frequency

    I give it 4.5. Warning, lots of subtitles. My wife was funny while I was watching it. She said I haven't see you read that much in years LOL

  • WillowWillow Posts: 8,663
    We finished watching the Fall. All in all it was decent. Not amazing but good. First 2 seasons were the best. Third is OK.
    We tried watching Santa Clarita diet wtf was that. One episode and what a waste of my life. We started Black Mirror. It's just OK. I'll give the second episode a chance but not looking good.
  • rooftop59rooftop59 Posts: 3,413
    Certain episodes of black mirror aren't great; others are amazing. It's kind of a modern twilight zone. Every episode is different. Episode 2 of season one is really good, as is episode 1 of season 3. You can skip around...

    I wish there were more episodes. I found the Xmas one and season 3 to be the best overall season wise.

    "Frequency" *the series* is very good. At first I was a bit put off by the main idea, but now love it, being on episode 7!~

    Schitt's Creek. It's soooo bad it's funny.

    Narcos was so so. If you want the real thing, watch "Pablo Escobar El Patron del mal". Great if you speak Spanish, Not sure how good the subtitles are.

    For me, Shameless is one of the greatest shows i've ever watched.
    If you like pure dysfunction of course.

    A few times when Frank goes on his rants, my wife and I looked at each other and said that is just like your mom ( wifes). I am just starting with season 4. I just can't stop watching it!
  • mrbironmrbiron Posts: 4,135
    Oh, you are in for a real treat if you stick with it!

    All of the characters have their own little quirks which make them all unique.

    I watch it on Showtime so i am current. Can't wait for the next season!

    Started watching shameless last night. On episode 12. Hate myself for liking it....It's really depressing.
