    I'm working on season 4 of oitnb!

    These are some shows I've binged on Netflix:
    Dexter
    How to Get Away With Murder
    The Following
    The Returned
    Parks & Recreation (ongoing, haha)

    My sister just recommended I watch Shameless, so that's next on my list!

    LOST, for sure...

    I could name a bunch of others -- but what are your likes/dislikes, whether specific shows or genres? That might help give more specific shows for your taste.

    I am watching Nurse Jackie! It's good! My husband and I also binged Son's of Anarchy and I thought I was going to hate it but it was pretty good!

    Humor, drama, good feeling, non violenthe
    But anything popular would be grand. Ha
    Friends, Modern Family, Desperate Housewives were favorites in my TV watching years. Being a mom made TV watching hit and miss for years.

    Can't remember off-hand if it's on Netflix or not but Friday Night Lights is *terrific.* The one show I absolutely recommend to everyone, no questions asked. I really enjoyed Parenthood - good quality but lighter in tone than most of the prestige shows. I binged The West Wing a few years ago and enjoyed that a lot.

    Psych - tons of comedy, light drama
    Gilmore Girls - mix of drama and humor
    How I Met Your Mother - tons of comedy
    I'm sure I'll think of more later...

    Did you loooove this season of oitnb? It was my fave yet.

    I've statted Daredevil. And I think the upcoming one called Stranger Things looks good. Very Stephen King-ish.

    I DID! I loved the first though but mainly because it was building the characters and setting thus grabbing my attention and awe.

    Person of Interest has the first four seasons on Netflix - it aired its series finale last month and the final season will hopefully be on Netflix sooner rather than later

    TURN - Washington's Spies.

    I saw the first few seasons on Netflix and got the AMC Apple TV app just to watch the third season. So sad the season has ended. It is SOOO good.

    I also like cartoons so Bob's Burgers and Archer are HILARIOUS.

    Portlandia is great mindless comedy.

    I like the BBC crime dramas. I also liked Salem, which is not something I'd normally like. House of Cards has a US and British version. It's okay, too.

    If you like SciFi, Fringe is very good.

    The Following is SO GOOD!!!

    Other than OITNB, I like food docs and shows, so Chef's table is a must :)

    Adding lots to my list, thanks! Sometimes it's only Netflix that will stop me from thinking school or solving other world problems. HA

    The first thing I do when I go on Netflix is to see if there are any new "Netflix Original Series" out. Some of them are really good.

    Those are in two totally different leagues as far as quality is concerned.

    After season 3, Weeds takes a precipitous drop in quality.

    -Grey's Anatomy will keep you busy for quite a while!
    -The Office (currently watching the series for the 4th time)
    -Lie to Me is really good, but only has 3 seasons which is super disappointing. It's just a really interesting concept. It's a crime show but completely different than most you see.
    -F is for Family (depending on your sense of humor...it's like a dirtier version of King of the Hill in my opinion. Definitely NSFW)

    The Fosters

    I rarely watch TV (although I have cable and Netflix--go figure)! Anyway, I discovered this show last week and I've been binge watching it. Trying to wach as many episodes as possible before heading back to work.

    Kat liked Lie to me but kept changing days & lost track of it.

    We watched Agent x on Hulu. Very good but got cancelled after 1 season... so sad.

    Mysteries of Laura was good &that one is cancelled as well.

    I watched The Fall with Gillian Anderson. It was creepy.
    I also watched River. Another detective series.

    Both had an odd spin.
