tvyak The "What Should I Watch on Netflix/Amazon Prime/Hulu/HBO etc streaming service" Thread

I was thinking we should have a running thread on what to watch on Netflix and Amazon Prime... that way, anyone who finds a gem, a great movie, or a show they missed while it aired and are loving, they can share with the rest of the class.

I love being able to catch up or watch shows I missed while they aired. I have been doing a lot of that lately. I never used to watch The Walking Dead, but now I'm a fan thanks to Netflix binge watching. What are some of the great ones you have found? Movies, shows, whatever? So far, I have binged:

The Walking Dead (Netflix)
The West Wing (This one is ongoing lol) (Netflix)
Ugly Betty (Netflix)
House of Cards (Netflix)
Orange is the New Black (Netflix)
Sherlock (Netflix)
Orphan Black (Amazon Prime) - Good time to get caught up, new season starts next weekend.
Alpha House (Amazon Prime)
Luther (Netflix and Amazon Prime)
Breaking Bad (Netflix) - My husband and son watched this... I didn't :/
Downton Abbey (Amazon Prime)

My new infatuation is Mad Men (Netflix). I have the current season recording so I can get caught up in time to see the last season.

Anything I missed that we should be watching?

I LOVE the idea of this thread!

I'm binge watching The West Wing right now, but I've seen some great things on there:

The Wrong Mans (Hulu)
Doctor Who (Hulu & Netflix)
Misfits (Hulu)

I'm sure there's more, but it's all I can think of for now.

I think I was on this site raving about most of those shows. I'm trying to think what else is great that's not on the list. What about Justified? That's a great show. Season 2 is especially genius. It's not streaming yet but next season is the last so it probably will be soon. The Fall and Rectify are two shorter ones that you can buzz through. There's one called Terriers that lasted just one season but it's routinely mentioned as one of the most entertaining shows never to last more than one season. I know that's streaming on Netflix.

I didn't get the Rectify love.

This thread is an excellent idea. I'm trying to actually binge watch shows on my DVR while still working through Friday Night Lights on Netflix. I don't have much else to add here at this point. lol

Rectify was on most top 10 lists so don't listen to that guy.

Chuck is always a good choice! In keeping with the spy theme, I will also add Alias (Netflix) to my list of shows that you should watch.
