    I need a new show to binge watch. I most recently finished Breaking Bad. I watched the first episode of Better Call Saul (the Breaking Bad prequel), but I'm not convinced yet that I'm into it enough for a binge.

    Other recent binges I've enjoyed:
    • Stranger Things
    • Lucifer
    • The Marvel Series
      • Jessica Jones
      • Daredevil
      • Luke Cage
      • The Punisher
      • Iron Fist
      • The Defenders
    • Gotham
    Any suggestions on shows you think I might enjoy?

    Also, feel free to post shows that you've binged that you think others may enjoy.

    The Blacklist and Penny Dreadful are both really good.

    They look like possibilities. I'll add them to my list.

    Oddly enough, the preview for The Blacklist was playing when I opened Netflix in my browser.

    The Haunting of Hill House was excellent. Just don't watch it if you need cheering up.

    Not sure if these are exclusive to Amazon or not, but if you can find them Sneaky Pete and Pushing Daisies are excellent.

    Umbrella academy super hero team dark.

    Had no idea Marvel had so many series going, but nice to know they're coming out with some good ones now: their first few attempts in the 70s and 80s were pretty awful ( have to admit I watched the Hulk anyway though :D )

    While we're talking about it: a cpl years ago I started watching a decent Marvel series about a mutant who could alter reality. Then I forgot about it and haven't been able to find it because I can't remember the name.

    Anybody know what the series was called?

    Oh yeah: Deadwood and Rome. Both are HBO. If you havent seen them I would put them both towards the top of my list. They each only ran for 2 seasons so it's more like watching a really long movie. : D

    Also, if you don't mind watching something that's basically a play, I Claudius from PBS was fantastic.

    If you're in the documentaries, Fearless, which is about Brazilian bullriders is extremely good.

    There's also a series called "Breaking Banned" about people addicted to creating sock-puppet accounts and trolling internet forums.

    Well no, no other isn't.

    . . . YET!

    Cirque du Freak is not bad-- I'm only on episode 2 however

    Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is quite well done, if a bit dark (but I like dark)

    If you ever watched the original The Charmed Ones, the reboot is a pretty good re-envisioning of the original ideas.

    I found I really enjoyed Kim's Convenience. Very different from those you listed, however, but it's a quite good look at Culture from the viewpoint of non-North Americans (the show takes place in Canada, which I found very refreshing). It's a quasi-soap, but well done. I liked it enough to watch through season 3, e6.

    On the same theme, I watched the first 5 episodes of Mr Iglesias, based on the comedian of the same name (of which I'm a huge fan: "I'm not fat, I'm fluffy"). In this, the comedian is a school teacher. Well written so far.

    iZombie is now on Netflix-- 5 seasons. I've only seen the first 4? I think-- I lost track when CW became impossible to stream, so I gave up on their feeds. I may go back and watch the whole through.
