    Netflix UK - Recommendations please

    Ok - so after watching

    House of Cards
    Homeland
    Breaking Bad

    and struggling with

    Orange is the New Black
    Sons of Anarchy

    I need some inspiration for a netflix 'box-set' to help me through these dark nights - any recommendations?

    Is River on Netflix UK? I suspect it might not be, as I think it's a BBC production and Netflix only does the international distribution. Anyway, if it IS on there and you haven't seen it, I recommend it.

    I'm currently making my way through Marco Polo. It has gotten some mixed reviews, but I think it's quite enjoyable.

    If you've watched Breaking Bad you should watch Better Call Saul - new season in a couple of weeks too. I've just watched Making A Murderer, interesting stuff.

    If you happen to have Amazon prime, or wanna give it a go, I'd recommend Transparent, The Man In The High Castle and Mr Robot.

    thanks guys - after a hard sell, i have persuaded the missus to watch Narcos; which is about the rise and fall of Pablo Escobar.

    Now when i was at university, i used to distance myself from all the 'mr nice' auto-biographies and books and 'loaded' articles - cos i was too cool for school and was well over the novelty of weed.

    Cocaine though ruined clubbing for me - no longer was it speed, pills, bottles of water and smiling at people. It really was the drug of self indulgence, so i am looking forward to seeing how the story develops from the 70's to my hayday in the '90's...

    Narcos is pretty good, it's not very deep but it's pretty violent.

    Wife & I watching How To Get Away With Murder at the minute. A bit like Narcos, it parades itself as being quite serious but it's just a romp when it comes down to it. Approaching the end now and it's getting pretty interesting. I won't give too much away.

    Have also enjoyed -

    Suits (10/10 for escapism tbh, good fashion too)
    The Goodwife
    Damages
    Archer (comedy animation gold)

    Narcos is well worth a watch. My only complaint would be - no spoiler - that some characters are a little flat and one sided.

    Also, in a completely different category, I liked Grace & Frankie.
