TuteTibiImperes: Also very worth checking out if you haven't been following them: Suits (USA), Covert Affairs (USA), The Newsroom (HBO), Continuum (SyFy), and Falling Skies (TNT).
MaudlinMutantMollusk: I got the first half of Breaking Bad season 3/I'm good
RoyBatty: Though I really wanted it to be good, Gillian Anderson's The Fall is terrible.There is this very unbelievable serial killer and in the five episodes of the first season, they do figure out who he is, but not at all through the police work of anyone, including Gillian Anderson. The serial killer makes a mistake and that's that.There are a dozen other subplots about Northern Ireland politics that are never resolved. Stay tuned for Season 2, but nuh uh, not me.
Dwight_Yeast: Luther (it's all up on Netflix, except the last series, which just aired) The final episode is one of the most satisfying TV finales I've ever seen.
TuteTibiImperes: The Newsroom (HBO)
TuteTibiImperes: Orphan Black
TuteTibiImperes: Continuum (SyFy), and Falling Skies (TNT).
jakomo002: I concur. Possibly my favorite gritty detective show. Idris Elba's best work to date.
cartersdad: I will be doing an under the dome marathon.
BalugaJoe: I got 6 books from the library.reading The Caine Mutiny.
Tom_Slick: I'll add Rizzoli and Isles, not a great show but a good show. Hell on Wheels is pretty good as well.
The Banana Thug: cartersdad: I will be doing an under the dome marathon.You'll be disappointed. Really wanted to like Hank from Breaking Bad on this one, but his character is very unlikable, and his dumbass teenage son is killing the show with his bad acting and poor caricature of a rebellious teenager.
Carth: Elementary: Terrible. Watch the superior British Show Sherlock instead of this campy dumbed down version.
carnifex2005: Glad they put Banshee in there. Such a guilty pleasure. Nothing high brow about it but it is a great, grimy, nudity filled, ultra violent, action / noir story that I went back to week after week.
SoupJohnB: I watched the premier of "The Bridge" and it showed promise, but didn't finish the second show. I guess they were trying to develop the characters, but it seemed to drag on and on, like a soap opera. Anybody here recommend giving another try?
WhyteRaven74: And there's always Dr. Who.
The Banana Thug: My recommendations: Luther (Idris Elba's finest work), House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Jericho, Hatfields & McCoys (Kevin Costner one, not the crap Christian Slater rip-off), Hell on Wheels, and Southland. Only the last one is NOT on Netflix.The Investigation Discovery reality crime shows (such as Nightmare Next Door, Solved: Extreme Forensics, and Disappeared) are HUGELY addicting, and surprisingly underrated on Netflix, but not for everyone.
mafiageek1980: Even though it doesn't come out on DVD until Sept 17th, yall should check out "Bates Motel":http://www.amazon.com/Bates-Motel-Season-Vera-Farmiga/dp/B00DNUSFZQ/ re f=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1377956819&sr=8-2&keywords=bates+motel/Vera Farmiga BETTER get the Emmy for best actress this year, damnit!

Carth: Ones I've seen:The Americans: Great show. Captures the 80s cold war feel and very well done for a spy drama. Can be a bit over dramatic at times but definitely watch worthy.

I guess they were trying to develop the characters, but it seemed to drag on and on, like a soap opera. Anybody here recommend giving another try?I recommend giving it another try.One thing I think everyone should know going into the show is that the main character is on the spectrum. Half the shiat she says does not make any sense and it comes off as bad acting IF you're not aware of her autism firsthand. I watched the first episode without knowing she's disabled and her social cues were just off-putting.
