    I thought it would be good to have a thread with people's suggestions of what's good hiding away in the Netflix database... Fallenchicken and Sirkicky made some suggestions in the Best movies thread and I've reposted them here...


    Give us your best suggestions please!!!

    OK - Marco Polo.. if you haven't seen it I think it's worthwhile seeing. Lots of production value, costed them $90m to make 10 episodes.


    The final episode was badass with one of the best fight scene ever seen on made for TV series. They really could have stretched this out to 14-15 episodes series if they wanted to but they've kept it short and sweet. A bit too much nudity for my liking so if your kids are 17 or under I would probably not recommend watching it with them.

    Marco Polo = The dump you take after visiting an Indian buffet.

    Black Mirror is indeed pretty great. I've watched four of the six episodes and liked them all.

    An oldie but a goodie is The West Wing. At this point it's pretty solidly my favorite TV show ever. It's what I watch when I don't know what else to watch. And since I'm one of those people who almost always has something on in the background, I've probably gone through all seven seasons about four times now. I can't recommend a show more highly.

    I have good news for you, there is a 7th episode (Christmas special), and it's also really good.

    Yah, I'm surprised all 13 seasons of Frasier's also on Netflix... one of my favourite sitcoms.

    I actually prefer Orange over Cards. Both good, though. Just personal preference.

    Also the Honorable Woman, an eight episode miniseries. If you like sophisticated spy dramas (think John Le Carre) then you'll love this. One of my favorites.

    I binge watch cards, but I don't think I'd keep up with it if all the episodes weren't released at once. After both seasons I remember feeling like: this looks like a good show, it talks like a good show, but it's just... not very good.

    Love Orange is the New Black though. Heard mixed things about Marco Polo. I'll check it out if for no other reason than the interesting setting and expensive production.

    I have pretty much the same feeling about Cards. It's missing something that's hard to define. It feels very distant and antiseptic. But not bad for all that.

    Yah, and I'm still in love with Diane. I know she's a cartoon character and all but I just can't shake it.

    There's this cool little show called Breaking Bad on Netflix.

    Worth checking out, IMHO.

    BBC has been killing it for me lately (I know Black Mirror is like "Channel 4" or something--but let's just lump all of British tv into BBC). Their limited series approach to TV is very refreshing compared to American TV. The Honorable Woman especially is super novelistic--tv with a beginning, middle, end and no filler--brilliant! Eight episodes is what it needs to tell its story, and so it's eight episodes long (I think--around that). Just great stuff. But maybe it's just because only the best British shows pick up hype here--maybe the Brits, if they only watch Mad Men and Breaking Bad, think American TV is all great.
