Breaking Bad of course
Silicon Valley - I loved it and was surprised that my wife did too.
"The Americans" is fantastic.
We have already covered Westworld here. Either you get it or you don't , but give it at least a few episodes.

The Americans is good, my wife likes it. Same with "The man in the high castle".

I've enjoyed the episodes I've seen of Lost in Space.

The Wire (HBO?)

Wentworth (Netflix) don’t hate, I dig the accent.

Santa Clarita Diet (Netflix) funny

....this assuming you’ve already watched Arrested Development.

House of Cards is good.

If you like Breaking Bad you might like Better Call Saul.

Sneaky Pete is good, on Amazon. The Expnse is supposed to be good but I haven't seen it. It's Sci-fi, also on Amazon

My wife just watched Extinction and really enjoyed it.

I thought it was a movie, but she thinks it will be a series.



Got some time to check it out on the net (I’m babysitting my granddaughter in Florida).


Apparently it is a stand alone movie and has received less than stellar reviews.


Obviously, there are better options to watch.

I won't re list some of the ones that have been suggested, but I would also check out on Netflix: The Ranch, Altered Carbon and Mindhunter. They just stated season 2 of Goliath on Amazon and the first season was really good, and I really liked Tin Star as well on Amazon.

Loved Counterpart, and I'm surprised about how much I've enjoyed Succession. Nothing like really rich people behaving badly, especially when the writing and acting is this good.

Billions is another fun show. It won't change the world, but it has a very engaging story.

Mad Men is worth looking into if you haven't seen it already.

Looking forward to the return of Ozark, and the new Jack Ryan series starts at the end of the month.
