    What have you found on netflix

    that is fabulous. We just got it. Ours is Canadian, so it might be a bit different, but so far we have loved:

    Grace and Frankie
    Father Brown
    The Last Kingdom

    anything else you would recommend? particularly stuff from Uk

    are you talking about dvd or streaming Netflix? the streaming options are more limited.

    Sherlock
    Luther
    Master of None
    Making of a Murderer
    stand up of Louis CK and Patton Oswalt and a million other comedians
    I love the documentaries- Crazy Love was a good one
    TED Talks
    Orange is the New Black

    make sure to rate what you have seen and it tries to find other things you might like and then those lead you to others and you are led down a rabbit hole into the neverland of Netflix. I have a 300 item queue, I will die before watching the whole thing. Granted I share my queue with my daughter and mother so I am not solely responsible for that hot mess

    We stream Netflix through ROKU and watch mostly British/Australian/Canadian series/mysteries, and documentaries - not big movie buffs. We also subscribe to ACORN for even more fun British viewing enjoyment.

    Midsomer Murders
    Derek
    Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries
    Life
    Granite Flats
    Monarch of the Glen
    Rosemary & Thyme
    Inspector Morse
    Poirot
    Vexed
    Broadchurch
    Death in Paradise
    Detectorists
    Foyle's War
    Doc Martin

    The Returned (the french one, not US)
    Rectify
    Iris
    Portlandia
    Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work
    the old Bob Newhart Show
    Call the Midwife
    Paperclips
    House of Cards
    Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (I hate this show but everyone I know loves it)
    Louie

    series I had never seen before were good when I first got sick: like 100 episodes of Criminal Minds when I was on steroids and never, ever slept, lol. There are tons with all the previous episodes so you can catch up with a current show

    As I mentioned in another post, we are now in the throes of the HBO series The Newsroom. It is so awesome.. I am dreading getting to the end of the series. Brilliant storytelling, character development, casting.

    I've been watching a show with a premise that sounds truly too awful to believe, but it's actually rather entertaining: izombie. it reminds me of Dead Like Me, another macabre comedy (that may also be available on Netflix). It's quirky and silly and most certainly the antithesis of tasteful britcoms, but reasonably fun and amusing.

    (Unbelievably bad premise: young med student is attacked by someone who's taken a drug that turned them into a sort of zombie. she retains her humanity, but need for fresh brains causes her to switch careers and work in morgue. Finds that eating brains of murder victims gives her visions which help solve crimes. )

    Lots of the old TV shows like The Andy Griffith Show-Cheers-and most of them go back to the beginning.
