Bumping this thread because it's so interesting. I will add a few recent series we've really enjoyed:
  • The Widow starring Kate Beckinsale (Amazon Prime)
  • The Night Agent (Netflix)
  • The Diplomat starring Keri Russell (Netflix)
  • The Recruit (Netflix)
  • The Lincoln Lawyer (Netflix)
  • Jack Ryan (Amazon Prime)
  • Brokenwood Mysteries (Britbox)
  • Laurel Canyon (Amazon Prime)
  • Line Of Duty (Britbox)
At the top of our all-time list, we would include Foyle's War; Bosch; All Creatures Great & Small; and The Night Manager. All of these are outstanding.
Big plus for The Diplomat and the NIght Agent (Netflix).

Just started watching Brokenwood Mysteries. It's available on Amazon Prime. Wasn't sure about it at first but, it's growing on me after 5 episodes.

You'll begin to love the quirky characters--not just in the police department, but in the town of Brokenwood as well. Very fun.

I got hooked on Suits on Amazon Prime. Watched the full series twice in the last year. Great characters and acting

Compared to HBO, FX, and Apple series, I haven't found near as many excellent series on Amazon and Netflix. Netflix in particular seems to favor quantity over quality. The writing appears to be particularly lacking.

I loved Ozark on Netflix and Patriot on Amazon, but have found nothing to compare to The Sopranos, Succession, The Wire, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Severance, and Ted Lasso.

Then you haven't seen Bosch, The Crown, The Night Manager, The Lincoln Lawyer, Line Of Duty, Reacher--or any of the superb documentaries like My Octopus Teacher, Flight Of The Butterflies, Laurel Canyon, or Chef's Table, to name just a few.

Or, perhaps, you just have different tastes. Of those you listed, I would only watch Laurel Canyon and Chef’s Table. I like comedy, rom-coms, sports and music. I hate documentaries, anything about the royal family, cop shows, horror and pretty much anything that would stir anger or hatred. I promise you, if I did watch something like that, I wouldn’t like it. We all like different things, and that’s okay.

That's fair. Just making conversation. To each his own.

Wasn't going to continue watching Ozark after the first two episodes. After breaking my right arm and left foot, it's been a good watch. Hated it at first...but when there is nothing much to watch, it's been okay.

I am more a Poldark kind of binge watcher. I could watch those again.

On Prime a few to recommend

The Outlaws- A British dramedy about people from all walks of life performing community service. The added presence of Christopher Walken helps it along.

Loudermilk- A published rock music critic who hit bottom runs a recovery group of misfits. Creator Peter Farrelly can go over the top raunchy at times but there are some really funny episodes.

The Marvelous Ms. Maisel. Getting to the end of the run but still has it's moments.

If you want something way off the wall and want to practice your Spanish, watch La Usupadora. They took A classic telenovela and reworked it into a 25, 1 hour episode series. Suppose Jill Biden or Melania Trump want to bail out of a marriage to the president. Well one way to do it is to find your long lost twin sister and threaten to kill your biological mother unless your sister takes your place as a stand in wife at the white house. What could go wrong? The absurdity of it makes it fun.

During the pandemic I discovered a lot of the New Zealand dramedies. They show up on Prime, Acorn or Roku.

Step Dave- a one night stand between a young bartender and a woman who is in her later 30's turns into chaotic relationship drama.

800 words - Widowed father moves two kids to small beach town. It's another relationship drama at it's best is very funny and touching.

Going further back in time is Outrageous Fortune. Kind of like a New Zealand Shameless but a little less rank, at least for the first few years.

Thumbs up to New Zealand Television writers.

Stumbled on to “Is It Cake?” on Netflix last week. Cute baking show with two seasons thus far where contestants try to fool judges who have to figure out which realistic object (shoe, basket, statue, steak dinner etc) is cake from amid real objects. They have some really talented bakers and the insides of the cakes look marvelous (I’m a fan of frosting, and everyone gives me their birthday cake roses, but I’d pass on the fondant outer shells on the competition cakes).

We watch this show with our grandkids. It's amazing what those contestants do with cake.

The final season of Endeavour was just released on PBS. You can see it via Acorn or Britbox, which you can subscribe to through Amazon Prime. Endeavour is the prequel to an older Birtish detective series entitled Inspector Morse. My DW said, "this is the first time I've seen a prequel or sequel that so far exceeded the original--and the original was good". By the way, the final episode, which closes the series at the end of Season 9 of Endeavour is beautifully written and brilliantly concluded.

Someone also recommended "Happy Valley" to us, but the actors' northern British accents were so strong we had too much trouble understanding and gave up.
I loved Happy Valley. I too had a hard time with the accents but used CC which really really helped.
GIve it another try...the bad guy.....amazing actor. However the lead is amazing.....such a strong woman's role.

We are enjoying the final season of Jack Ryan on Amazon Prime. I am watching Foundation on Apple TV, but I always feel a bit confused, I read all the books, but that was 25-30 years ago, so my memory must be slipping.

I just finished season 1 of The Diplomat on Netflix and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately it ended with a cliff hanger and now I've got to wait until Season 2 gets produced, which could be a while given the strike. We're also eagerly watching season 2 of the Lincoln Lawyer.

FAUDA on Netflix

Its about a special ops team and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Sounds heavy but honestly was so enlightening although still a heavy drama. 4 seasons, u wont recognize any of the actors. Very well done.
