I would love to hear your picks!
Thanks!

I don't watch much TV (including streaming content), but nonetheless like House of Cards on Netflix. I'd like to believe that no real life politician could ever possibly be as conniving, deceitful and manipulative as the Francis Underwood character played in the series by Kevin Spacey.

On the other hand, didn't (real-life) former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, "Diddler Dennis" Hastert, just report to (real life) prison today? :ponder:

I have been watching The Newsroom. It only lasted 2 1/2 seasons, so there aren't that many episodes. It is very well written and produced, and it has really drawn me in.

I also have been watching Entourage. Not for everyone, but it is a fun adult drama w/ some comedic undertones.

Both of these series are on Amazon Prime.

The first season was a masterstroke of good and evil.....and just how they can both be more alike than different. Great acting especially the "bad" brother . Just when you thought Danny was evil...he showed that he actually was the only one who was telling the truth. Great acting.

No spoiler alert because you knew Danny had been murdered by his own good brother from the very first episode. So could not figure out why there was a second season with one of the main actors dead.

However, the second season allowed the other siblings to show their true selves...including the "good" son. I felt sorry for him as he tries to hold on to the ideal of being the good strong one (; and how the others forsake him when he needed them the most (; I actually enjoyed the second season more than the first ...for mostly different reasons. But one of the most beautiful aspects of that show is the opening music. If you like it you will probably like the series.

(Be forewarned: it is very, very intense.)


For an option that is much, much lighter, fun, but still well-written:
Burn Notice

Rectify is absolutely brilliant. Slow moving intense drama about a man who was convicted of rape and murder. As the drama unfolds we meet his family and former friends and delve into this character driven series. Sundance Channel series - available on Netflix and Amazon.

Jessica Jones is an action packed thriller based on a comic book. Dark humor. Netflix.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a hilariously wacky contemporary comedy. The main character was kidnapped as a preteen and has been kept underground for 10 years. When she's rescued she decides to try to make it on her own in NYC. She makes some ridiculous friends and encounters unpredictable situations. Netflix.

Cowspiracy and Blackfish are documentary films that may change the way you think. Both are on Netflix.

Underground is action drama about slaves escaping from the south. It's available on Amazon.

Continuum and Orphan Black are both sci-fi action thrillers with strong female leads. Both are on Amazon.

We are big fans of Bosch and cannot wait for season three. My stepdad watches it with us and loves the show.

We also watched Man in the High Castle and are concerned there will be no season 2.

Didn't care for Mozart in the Jungle.

We also subscribe to Showtime through Amazon for about $10/ month. I love Homeland and have seen all of the seasons.

I wish Amazon Prime had season 2 of Halt and Catch Fire. I didn't see it.

Is Bosch available on any other service yet? I'm looking forward to watching it, and may have to break down and get Prime.

I have read nearly every book Michael Connelly has written. I thoroughly enjoy the Harry Bosch character. I just located Lost Light and will listen to the audio book.

I like his Mickey Haller character as well - he has some great comedic lines in The Lincoln Lawyer.

We got Netflix because we thought we'd see movies. Wrong! They have a pathetic selection of B- films for the most part. But the series are terrific, whether they were originally on regular TV or are Netflix originals.

Breaking Bad, Damages, House of Cards, Sons of Anarchy, Longmire, Bloodline, Orange is the New Black, Nurse Jackie, Frankie & Grace.

Movies are in the 'eye of the beholder' IMHO, but I think Netflix is well worth the price for the original programming.

OTH, Amazon Prime is well worth the price for the Movies and Music...the other content is gravy. Or whipped cream if you prefer.

There is a British comedy series from several years ago tilted "The IT Crowd". It is about some lowly IT tech workers in a British Corp and their antics. I found this 4 year series absolutely hysterical. It stars Chris O'Dowd who is now turning up in a lot of US movies.

Bloodline, even the second season with out Danny realtime, was enthralling! I don't know if we'll see a third season, I thought I read they were no longer going to benefit from tax credits for filming in Florida. How do you do a series set in the Keys without the Keys?

Check out 'The Fall' and 'The Missing' on Netflix.

Two more

The Killings is a moody, rain filled police procedural with a very strong cast. The partnership is built on trust and good old police work. Great acting by the two main characters and a strong woman driven part. Oh yes, Seattle with all its rain is another main character....love it when the setting is an integral part of the story.

Also another strong woman driven part is How to Get Away With Murder....the woman professor is a tough cookie....she is fascinating to watch.

Thanks for that! I get nervous when I think I might run out of things to watch although I know I have a couple more seasons of Longmire and I just started Nurse Jackie and I think that was on Showtime (?) for several years. I am happy to watch things that I can watch without my hand over my eyes -- loved Sons of Anarchy but spent LOTS of time looking away, and even resorted to the mute button a few times. Creepy, nasty charcters for the most part but fabulous acting! Cliff would holler from the next room "What the heck are you watching, that sounds hideous?!"
