I am looking for series in particular, rather than movies. Something that will last me.

So far I have watched:
Orange is the new black
The fall
Life
Breaking Bad
Top of the Lake
the Returned

I think that's it.

Just started Rectify.

Arrested Development?

i never watched that until i had netflix but i am typically late to the party for such things.

orange is the new black season 2 comes out next month i think.

we watched the first episode of house of cards but have not revisited yet.

i also watched a bunch of cartoons i had already seen like Bob's Burgers and King of the Hill on netflix because they always make me laugh.

same thing i rewatched Parks and Rec

Awesome stuff, guys!

A lot of these things I saw when they were on cable, but there are some titles I have never heard of, so that is helpful.

I think I would enjoy watching Better off Ted a second time through.

I loved bomb girls! (Women working in a munitions factory in toronto during ww2.)

I also quite liked call the midwife. (Women delivering babies in a poor neighborhood of london in i guess the 50s.)

I just started watching land girls, but i dont think its as good as those other two. I guess lately i am really inti period pieces about women doing awwsome things, and especially when there is a strong class elememt involved.

YES. STAR TREK. That will keep you busy for a good long time. :) It took me a little over a year to watch every episode and movie.

I started watching Damages a few weeks ago and am liking it a lot. It's a legal drama with loads of intrigue and conspiracy. Glenn Close is the lead.

A bunch of HBO programs are going to come onto Netflix either this week or next week including enlightened, the wire, the sopranos, and some of true blood.

Friday Night Lights was one of my first Netflix binge viewings. it's so great

I recently saw The Bletchey Circle (more of a mini series than a full season series) and really liked it.

And if you haven't watched Alias or My Boys, check them out.

I did this years ago when it was all VHS, although I saw TNG, DS9, and Voyager when they first aired and I was a superfan. Voyager was the end for me, though.

I've been wanting to see Hannibal - and I do have Amazon Prime!
If you like the lead in Hannibal, a lot of his movies are on Netflix. I liked After the Wedding and Adam's Apples.

I was SO addicted to Damages.

Also, Dance Academy. Haha, it's a terrible Aussie teen drama that I loved every second of. The dancing! But also, the guilty pleasure teen drama. Don't judge until you watch all three seasons.

Totally Battlestar Galactica.

I know it's older, but The West Wing. It sucked me in something fierce last fall and I'm feeling the urge to rewatch already.

And Twin Peaks, of course.

i recently watched a documentary-type series called "crimes of the century" and very much enjoyed it.

i'd second X-Files - and Freaks and Geeks is downright awesome...

Wallander (English and Swedish versions)
Annika Bengtzon

- If you understand Swedish/don't mind subtitles. I enjoyed all of the shows you listed so thought you might like these.

I had never seen Parks & Rec ever but started to watch it in the depths of winter and all three of us enjoyed it.

The Glades. It's not the greatest show ever but I like (and like to look at :-)) the main character and something about the whole show is appealing.

Rosemary and Thyme! Any of the Miss Marple series!

But perhaps I just like sassy, older British ladies who nose their way into solving crimes.

Do you get the Louis Theroux documentaries on American Netflix? If so, they're good!

Wallander is totally on the queue. I heard it was like some of the other things I have liked. Well add Annika Bengtzon.
