Binge-worthy TV shows
    • No spoilers here. But little winks at people who have watched the show.
    • Not complete. Still writing and of course watching. Dave
      • The show that got bingeing started as far as I'm concerned.
      • Baltimore cops, dealers, people, longshoremen, news people.
      • I've heard people say it's hard to get started with, but it's worth it.
      • I've watched it at least five times, probalby six or seven (lost count).
      • Walter White and Jesse Pinkman in the meth age, in Albuquerque. One of the best binges.
      • New Jersey Mob boss in therapy.
      • The best show, right up there with The Wire, and the one that got the whole bingeing things started.
      • Lots of people didn't like the finale, but I loved it.
      • Medieval depravity and dragons.
      • Never can wait for the next season.
      • Next one starts in April 2016.
      • Low budget cheesy special effect science fiction with a great cast, writing, story.
      • It's worth staying for the punchline, which some people didn't like but I did.
      • Great use of music, lots of innovative ideas about the future, the security of nets.
      • Even better than Breaking Bad.
      • There's one episode in the first season where you get the full back-story on Mike, and it's just the best single episode of TV ever. The rest of the season pales, but it's also great entertainment.
      • But -- you should watch Breaking Bad before BCS, imho.
      • Family-run mortuary in LA.
      • Always good to watch, the show finale is the best finale ever.
      • Advertising in the 60s. Smoking and drinking and sexing.
      • Great acting, characters.
      • Best scene: the finale of course, but before that Bert Cooper's song and dance.
      • One of the best ever, but they stopped making the show before the climax.
      • I hear they're making a movie, but it's been ten years, and I think it can't possibly work.
      • The story of the real town of Deadwood is amazing.
      • But, even with the disappointment of no good ending, it's still a great show.
      • Not quite a binge show, it's not really a serial, but it's great watching.
      • It's like Hill Street Blues at the White House.
      • You wouldn't think it could be good because the movie was so amazing, but it is good the way the movie was, but at the same time original. Two fantastic seasons so far. Another in the pipe, fo4 2017.
      • Netflix series about Steven Avery of Wisconsin who was framed for rape, and then tried for murder, and is currently in jail.
      • A delusional Snowden, on hard drugs.
      • Loved it. Will definitely watch season 2.
      • Soviet spies in Washington, passing as Americans at the height of the Cold War.
      • Loved this show, but it turned bad.
      • I made it through season 5, waiting for something interesting to happen, but it was boring, awful, waste of good actors. No story. I won't watch it next season.
      • The first few seasons are quite good.
      • I have to admit the idea of Jeffrey Tambor as a trans woman made me ill, but I watched the show anyway, and it was great, both the first and second seasons. They take a while to get started, and the characters are mostly horrible people, but the stories are touching and finally they do win you over. Only in Season 2 you get to hate them all over again. And then it all makes sense, etc.
      • BTW, Angelica Houston has a small but nice role. I learned a new acronym from her character: NATO == Not Attached To Outcome.
      • Gillian Anderson from the X-Files as a super macho Irish police chief working a on serial murder.
      • It's a very fine three-part short binge, with Frances McDormand as Olive, and a suprirse role by Bill Murray. Very sweet story, but not linear, which I like of course.
      • A hospital in early 1900s New York. Very gory. I had to avert my eyes for the worst of it. But the story is compelling and it is beautifully done.
      • The mayor of Chicago suffers from a fatal disease but that doesn't stop the depravity.
      • Kelsey Grammer is great. You like evil? This is for you!
      • I thought I wouldn't like this because it's real close to home, even more than Halt and Catch Fire which I did not like (see below). But they nail it. All the crazy narcissism and cynical back-stabbing and money lust that makes up the tech industry, and it's funny in a Beavis and Butthead way.
      • An HBO series that no one ever seems to talk about, but it was good.
      • Takes place in ancient historic Rome, the time of Caesar and Cicero and all the slaves and nobles and how they live and die (more about dying than living).
      • Netflix drama about the life and death of Pablo Escobar in Columbia. A very worthwhile binge.
      • Update: Season 2 is great too.
      • What happens when two percent of the population disappears. Seemingly at random.
      • Two seasons, both good. No one knows what happened. A good story. Drifts a bit here and there, has a bit of the feel of Lost, but better, imho.
      • I watched it all the way to the end, it was great until about the halfway point, then it drifted slowly to a confusing unsatisfying end.
      • See the description for The OA, above? Exactly the same.
      • Another one every says is great, but I never made it past John Goodman who seemed very fat and unhealthy and that's basically all I remember about it. I was expecting The Wire. Probably should try again. But maybe once is enough.
      • Everyone says this is a great show but I can't get into it.
      • I tried watching season 1, and it was both ridiculous and inaccurate.
      • People said try season 2, and I lost interest for the same reason.
      • My theory is that I actually lived that period of history in the computer industry. I know what happened. They are wrong about it. I imagine this is how lawyers must feel about Law & Order for example. I can't fit the real story and their bullshit story in the same brain. It just doesn't fit.
      • You may like it, but don't believe that's how it happened because it didn't happen that way.
      • A mob boss in hiding in Scandanavia. It's fun for a while, but I lost interest in the second season.
      • I liked it for a couple of seasons, but just lost interest.
      • Drags on and on, over-acted. I hate shows that have huge dramatic moments that don't feel dramatic. So you play the heavy music and make your face move like it's heavy, but nothing fucking happened.
      • Maybe it's because I read the book. Which was okay. I basically like everything with Nazis in it, and this could have been fantastic if they had any showmanship, but ugh.
      • I kind of liked Lost while it was happening, but I would love to have gotten the time back.
      • I would watch just the first episode, and leave it at that. The show never topped that. That was the hook that kept me watching, thinking it might get back up to that level again. It never did.
      • I hate this show. It's so awful. And it could have been so good.
      • None of the things the characters do make sense.
      • I saw the British version, and that one was GREAT.
      • I watched the first couple of seasons, but fell behind and never caught up.
      • I guess you could say it wasn't holding my interest.
      • Current-day polygamy in Mormon SLC.
      • This could have been on either list.
      • I didn't watch the last season, but otherwise liked the show.
      • But it lost me somewhere.
    • Master of None
    • Jessica Jones
      • People say to skip Season 1, which I tried, but got bored with. I plan to start with Season 2. Everyone says it's great.
