House of Cards is a remake of a BBC series.

I really like Bloodline. Longmire, which started on A&E, is really good. I also liked Stranger Things.

  • Bloodline... loved season 1, dropped off a bit for season 2, still good though.
  • Catastrophe from Amazon... very funny.

Stranger Things was fantastic.

I like what I've seen of the Marvel stuff on Netflix.

The Crown is good if you are into history or need something to watch with the wife.

I have been really enjoying The Crown, I think we have 1 or 2 episodes left, great acting and the script is really good IMO. I think this was Game of Thrones best season and should have got the best drama golden globe, but The Crown deserved it as well.

There is a documentary on a group of people trying to become a Master Sommelier called "SOMM". I'm not a wine drinker but I found it fascinating watching these guys 'study' and practice for the test.

There is also a bar documentary that I really enjoyed called Hey Bartender. It follows an injured Marine who is a barback at one of the top bars in New York as he tries to become a bartender and an owner of a dive bar down south that is struggling to make a profit and is looking into the rebirth of cocktail culture to turn his business around.

Great show. By the end I was rooting for them like I would my team to win a championship. They also have a second one of these, not the same vibe but really good for wine folks.

I watched about a season and a half. It was decent, but I lost interest. I actually read the book (Washington's Spies) upon which the series is (somewhat loosely) based.

Goliath on Amazon with Billy Bob Thornton is good.
I've been on a plane back and forth from Philly for 4 straight weeks now. I have watched Amazon originals Goliath, Sneaky Pete, and The Patriot. All of them are very good, but my favorite is Patriot. Anyone watched it? It's a dark comedy secret ops show. It is hilarious at times. It feels like a long Wes Anderson film to me.

Humans, BBC original (based on Swedish series) - I think it raises some very interesting dilemmas and likely possibilities that will play out in the near future.

@MegaPoke it is depressing and scared the shit out of me as a parent with a 12 and 10 year old.

I only saw the last 4-5 episodes but it was well acted and had believable situations and outcomes.
