What TV Shows/Series do you recommend?

Recommended Posts

I was pretty much lost for words watching Benedict Cumberbatch in this. We’ve still got the final epi to go. It all got too much with the mother . . . What a vile, destructive set of parents they were.

 

Yes it's hard watching, though so well played and very moving. One of the most interesting things I'd watched for a while (saw this pretty much as soon as it came out I think).

Fargo is great and I've recently watched The Haunting of Hill House. Hill House is a bit spooky, but not too bad.

 

Edit: And Castle Rock. Being a Stephen King fan doesn't hurt, but it's no requirement.

Netflix

If you are a fan of surreal and absurd pychedelic comedy

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

Happy!

 

Not Netflix

Get Shorty - the series with Chris O'Dowd from the IT crowd. A quite different interpretation to the fab book and the film.

Trust on BBC IPlayer was really good. A slow start but fantastic.

 

I also liked You on Netflix too.

It’s strange having to interact as you go. I thought it was a joke at first haha

So if anyone wants quite a dark, twisted series.

 

Just watched The Sinner. Brilliant series. Strongly recommend it.

Les Mis was pretty harrowing as expected. I thought it was really well done (as in I had to studiously check the forum when the particularly gruesome bits were on!)

I’ve heard a few say similar, but all have stated it was a good watch.

 

I’m lining it up.

Breaking Bad. It's actually quite a slow burner at first, but it develops incredibly well and, in my opinion, is one of the best TV shows of all time in a lot of areas, especially character progression, cinematography, acting and screenwriting.

Grantchester is good! My sister mentioned it, we started with season 1 and now we are hooked. Old fashioned but not airy-Fairy!

Kingdom on Netflix. Feudal Korean Zombie Kung Fu series. After a slow first episode it produces amounts of peril previously never experienced while watching a TV series. Hugely recommended if a fan of the genre.
