    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.

    Can't believe I forgot about Catastrophe! I'd also give that my highest recommendation. Hilarious.

    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.

    Black Mirror is great.

    An anthology series.

    Kind of like a modern Twilight Zone commenting on today's media saturated society.

    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.

    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.
