Netflix

There used to be a thread on this but it's closed now. What shows do people recommend (other than the obvious like breaking bad, Saul etc.) ?

We've been watching The OA and Glitch. Both are really good so far and I like the fact that Glitch is Australian :)

    I don't watch Netflix. Is the subscription expensive?

    I started watching A Series of Unfortunate Events but I had to stop. It was to depressing for me and I couldn't deal with the stupidity of the adults.

    I suppose I find it more comic and screwball than depressing. And, of course, the consistently stupid behavior of the adults is precisely the point.

    It's £6 a month and there's no contract so you can just get it one month then skip it for however long if you want, which is good! We use it loads so we keep subscribing, but we don't have cable or sky or anything so it's great.

    Oh thought it was a subscription. That's good you can pay for it when you want. What is good is NowTV you can get day passes weekly passes or monthly passes. A day pass can be £6.99 and you can chose what you want like movies, entertainment or sky sports. You also have a free trial.

  • I didn't really like NowTV but that's probably because a lot of the stuff is already available on freeview and the other stuff wasn't worth it for the amount I'd watch, but it's good there's a lot of choice out there now. Not like when we were younger and if you didn't have sky you only had four channels lol!
  • Am liking unfortunate series of events as I read all of the books to my son a year or so back (it was agonizing by the end - we hated the beaudelaires by the end).

    Stranger things is must watch.

    Narcos is great - can't multitask when watching though since it is in subtitles for much of the time

    House of cards assume is in your obvious grouping

    Lot of good marvel series too.

    I bing watched Friday night lights a few years back - great show that I had ignored prior.

    I think that it is well acted. I can understand why people would like it. If it didn't involve children, it probably wouldn't be an issue for me.

    Me too for remembering that. :blush:

  • I think I was 11 or 12 when channel 5 began and I couldn't watch it unfuzzily (or at all most of the time) until we got freeview. Growing up without sky was a pain lol!

    I've seen Stranger Things and Narcos and really liked both. I look forward to season 2 of Stranger Things!
  • I'm watching The Crown. I'm on episode 3 and I like it!
    I just got to the part where King George died and Elizabeth becomes Queen.
  • You was 12 just cos it was launched a month before your birthday I was 13. Channel 4 was in 82 but I do remember the first logo for channel 4

    Broadchurch is really good. Friday Nights Lights.
    Daredevil is awesome but very violent.
    I didn't care for the other Marvel series.
    Stranger things.

    Stranger Things
    Jessica Jones
    Luke Cage
    Bates Motel
    Supernatural
    iZombie
    House of Cards
    Sons of Anarchy
    Lost
    Buffy the Vampire Slayer

    I gave a selection of new and old shows that I think are worth the watch. Also a variety of genres since I'm not sure what you like. I would also check out Games of Thrones (HBO) and The Affair (SHOWTIME) but unfortunately those aren't on Netflix.

    I've watched or tried most of those (a couple of them weren't my kind of thing) but I do really want to watch Supernatural and it isn't on UK Netflix :angry: so annoying!!

    Like all these shows too. I really watch way too much tv. I am rewatching Buffy and Lost right now. I usually watch both once every year or two. I am also just started the last season of Bates Motel.
