    Looking to fill a Narcos shaped hole.

    What's good and why?

    She Ra is on there and surely there is no need to tell you why.


    Seriously though, what kind of thing are you after and what have you seen (roughly) already?

    The Sinner, Orange is the New Black, Haunting of Hill House, Making a Murderer, Designated Survivor, Dogs - I enjoyed all of these for various different reasons.
    The Sinner is two Seasons, different crimes, same detective - really good thriller with dark undertones running through. Orange is the new black might be a bit girlie for you, females in prison, lesbian undertones etc (Or you might like it!), Haunting of Hill house - didn't find it in the slightest scary or jumpy so think reports of people fainting whilst watching were over exaggerated but its a good story with a nice twist. Making a murderer - true crime doc about Steven Avery, really good. Designated Survivor political drama, not watched it all yet but it seems good. Dogs - documentary about mans relationship with their woofers - makes me cry.
    I'm going to watch House of Cards next - can't go wrong with a Netflix original in my opinion.

    I think you might even like American Horror Story, I've only seen season 1 but it was really good!

    I'm also watching ATypical a comedyish series about a teenage boy with autism as he looks for love.
    My teenage son is currently being assessed so it hit a nerve when I saw it and can relate to some of the family's challenges.

    Yes, The Sinner sounds promising - not really my kind of shizzle, but then nor was Haunting of Hill House which i really rather enjoyed so i'll give that a go - thanks @Jade-clothing

    Series one was awful. Is the new series out? If so is it any better?

    I've been recommended 'The Good Life'

    It's some sort of comedy but sneaks in some good philosophical issues apparently!

    This has been thoroughly enjoyed - i will keep fingers crossed for more.

    I blubbed a bit (quite a lot, i'm doing it now), and i smiled a bit more.

    CBS are broadcasting it on January 17th, Im not sure when it will show on Netflix, its usually the day after?

    Season 1 wasn't too bad though
