Need a new TV show into which I can sink the teeth of my mind (Read 466 times)

    Here I am. Netflix user. I've finished or caught up with Friday Night Lights, Breaking Bad,  House Of Cards, Lillyhammer, Orange Is The New Black, Mad Men, Walking Dead, Louie, and Lost. Can anyone free me from the hell of sifting through all the shows on there with a strong suggestion for a good show? I also have Amazon Prime, if there's anything there. Thanks.

      Don't watch much but if I do it's on netflix or couchtuner.

       

      American Horror Story (at least season one, don't know about the others)

      Arrested Development

       

      More than anything else, I would highly highly recommend True Detective. It's not on netflix. You can find it on couchtuner (or other places I'm sure). I will leave it at that.

        People are saying The Americans is good, and it's on Amazon.  Not speaking from personal experience, though.

        Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

          Sherlock, Dexter, and The Killing are good (and dark) and you might enjoy if you liked Breaking Bad.

           

          Agreed that Arrested Development is dynamite, and I have a soft spot for the silliness of Trailer Park Boys, especially the incredible John Dunsworth as drunken horrorshow/trailer park supervisor Jim Lahey.

            Definitely Dexter. Cant stop watching..

              +1 for Arrested Development, and a vote for Parks and Recreation.

               

              For something darker, Sons of Anarchy.

               

              And, of course, there's the Brit-Soap, Downton Abbey.

              Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                all 5 seasons of Sons of Anarchy are available on both Prime & Netflix.

                 

                Vikings is on Prime.

                 

                The Returned via Netflix.

                 

                I would highly highly recommend True Detective. 

                 

                this. Rust (McConaughey) draws you in with both his outlook & insight (and to a lesser extent his ability to create little people from used beer-cans). Marty (Harrelson) is the ideal foil for Rust. it all makes for highly compelling viewing.

                My wife says i have a short attention spanners are great, aren't they?

                  Echoing the above.

                   

                  Also:

                  - Top of the Lake - a modern Twin Peaks, just not quite as weird (5/5)

                  - Spiral - The French version of The Wire (4/5)

                  - Luther - Breaking Bad, the British Cop version (5/5)

                  - The Following - FBI serial killer chase (3/5)

                  - Damages - the first season is pretty interesting: Law graduate joins cut-throat amoral law firm (as if there is another kind) (3/5)

                  - Weeds - suburban mom turns drug dealer (comedy).  The first few seasons are a riot (4/5 then 2/5 after they leave town)

                  - Awake - (just started this one) - crime procedural meets parallel worlds (3/5)

                    The Wire -- on Amazon, but you gotta pay.

                        I've been taking a break after Season 4, the season of John Lithgow. Ahhhh, I'm still not over the finale. Lithgow was AWESOME.

                          Maybe I'll re-up the DVD portion on Netflix for a month and binge watch these. I keep hearing great things about this show.

                              Step away from the fucking remote and go for a run.  That list is pathetic. You should be ashamed.

                                I run with my remote.

                                I'll never be ashamed of my list.
