Just watched the first episode of this, as I was looking for something to binge watch. The whole premise seems quite ridiculous and totally unrealistic but I think the creators know this and really play around with some crazy ideas. I've heard it's an incredibly fun show to watch, so I'm giving it a go. Has anyone else watched it? Any thoughts?

And while I'm here, any other shows I can binge watch? Preferably something that's finished. I've watched and enjoyed Breaking Bad, The Wire, The Sopranos. A lot of the classics. I'm open to any genre.. Cheers.

Well, I don't know how widely available it is, but I would suggest "PlayMakers". It never got nearly as much attention as it should've, but it still has my favorite series finale of all time (it only ran for one season). It's a football-based drama from 2003.

Just looked it up. Not into "American Football", would that matter? Is it anything like the current series "Ballers", starring The Rock?

To be honest, I'm not sure. I haven't seen Ballers, but it's less about on-the-field stuff and deals with things during the week. Not being into American Football, it may be hard to make that transition, so maybe not.

Netflix recommendations - "Narcos" - just binged the first season - thought it was gritty/great. Also - for political junkies - we re watched All 7 years of 'The West Wing" - I had forgotten how good it was.

I'll second Narcos. It's rare I enjoy TV series, but that one was good. If you can find it, check out The Wrong Mans, it's got an OK plot but plenty of laughs. You're British, so you'll get it. Check out Utopia too, a strange British drama, if you fancy something out of the ordinary.

I'll definitely check out Narcos eventually. Also, heard good things about Utopia. I'll take a look at that. Never heard of The Wrong Mans. I'll look it up.

Are you looking for up-to-date series or do older ones count too?

I could list a few SciFi / Mystery series from the 90ies/2000s if that's your cup of tea.

Once you think it's of good quality, please put it forward. I like getting stuck into a good TV show.

Okay:

- Dark Skies (1996-1997), sadly it was cancelled after only one season, but it's still one of my favourites. I think you find full episodes of the whole season on youtube.



- Quantum Leap (1989-1993) - one of the best ever if you are into time travelling, staaring Scott Bakula as Dr. Sam Beckett.



- Farscape (1999-2003) - A NASA astronaut stranded in an unknown galaxy.



- Fringe (2008-2013) - Still my favourite show ever, created by JJ Abrams. You probably know this one, but I thought I can't leave it out here



- Haven (2010-2015) - Great show on syfy, based on Stephen King's 'colorado kid'



- Roswell (1999-2002) - More like a SciFi/Lovestory, based around the Roswell Myth. Surely worth a go if you try to convince a girl to watch SciFi



- Outer Limits (1995-2002) - A more modern version of the Twilight Zone.



I can always shoot more, just let me know if you didn't find anything among these

Wow, nice list there Thorsten. I've been meaning to check Fringe out for quite a while. And obviously Quantum Leap is a classic. I'll look into these. Cheers.

Fringe is brilliant.


I enjoyed a show called Ascension recently, but like most shows I like, it got binned after a season.

And now for something completely different:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2699110/
The Affair
(going into its second season)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1856010/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
House Of Cards
(Spacey's brilliant - going into its third season, I think)

Glad I could help, IamGlenn.

A really much underrated gem in my list above is 'Farscape'. It seems a bit cartoony from the intro, but the story is really compelling and complex, highly recommend it if you haven't seen it yet.

I seriously didn't like any of them much
