Just finished watching Ozark but they only have one season out and are filming the second so it will be awhile for the next season.

Currently watching Peaky Blinders and finished the first season last night. It’s pretty good so far and if you like gritty gangster movies I’d recommend it.

If you want mindless entertainment It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is a great bingeworthy show. 

Other recommndations: Band of Brothers, Stranger Things, Togetherness, Narcos, Vikings, Broad City, Workaholics, Curb Your Enthusiasm.

stressedlady :  For strong females…

On Netflix (and PBS for new episodes): Call the Midwife, I don’t hear a lot about this show but it’s amazing and there are a ton of strong females (almost the entire cast) and a lot of sisterly togetherness lol. I had no interest at all in Midwifery, but this show really surprised me. It’s about a group of young midwives working in a poor community in 1950s/1960s London. 

On Hulu: The Handmaid’s Tale. So good. A dystopian future where women have all their rights taken away, but a small group of them start fighting back.

On Starz (available as an add on with Amazon): Outlander. 1940s woman accentially goes back in time to 1740s Scotland and falls in love with hunky highlander. The description is of a romance, but the female lead is a very spunky modern woman and takes nobody’s shit.


PPs suggested a lot of great ones too! These are just the three that stand out to me for strong female leads!

Other than what’s already been mentioned, Master of None with Aziz Ansari on Netflix is really good if you’re looking for a comedy.

BLACK MIRROR. On Netflix. It’s groundbreaking. Also, Arrested Development (except for the most recent season) and The Office. I also thought The Killing was really good.

Amazon Prime – Goliath and Hand of God.

Man in the High Castle on Amazon. 

I have way too many Netflix favorites (some of which PPs have already mentioned). I don’t think I’ve seen Bloodline or Making a Murderer mentioned yet so I’ll throw those out there.

stressedlady :  When Calls the Heart. Great feel good show. Reminds me of Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman.

Call the Midwife is really good too.

Stranger Things – So So So So Good! I’ve watched the entire series multiple times now.

Dark – Current obsession – it’s more intense than Stranger Things, it puts you into a kind of brooding mood. (German show, so you have to choose either English dubbing or subtitles, but worth it!)

Peaky Blinders – Just amazing. I’ve loved Cillian Murphy ever since “28 Days Later,” and Tom Hardy is my EVERYTHING – yummmmm. It’s an incredibly well-written, well-shot show. Very gritty and realistic.

The OA – Another amazing supernatural-type show that you can’t stop thinknig about once you start watching. 

I’ve heard Godless is amazing, but am still working my way through Dark. 😉


11.22.63 – I  love Stephen King, so I watched this immediately when it aired. VERY well done, and you definitely do not need to have read the book at all to follow and enjoy. Franco and the female lead are both AMAZING.

Amazon Prime:

The Man in the High Castle – Alternate reality where Germany/Japan won WWII and split the US between them. Very compelling – stellar writing and acting. 

Avator the Last Airbender  – I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve watched this entire series. I discovered it back when I was nannying and fell in love. It’s just incredibly well done, and written for both kids and adults. It’s very lighthearted and cheerful.

Mr. Robot – Very intense and unsettling, but worth it.

Boardwalk Empire – If you didn’t watch it back in its heyday.

Orphan Black – I started watching b/c people kept telling me I looked like the main character, and actually fell in love with the show. 

Girl – Obviously has its issues, but very quirky and funny.

Downton Abbey – for obvious reasons.

AquariusLove :  

  • The Crown  Netflix
  • Victoria  Amazon
  • The Good Place – Kristen Bell is both an ass kicker and hilarious – Netflix & Hulu
  • The Good Wife – Amazon
  • Six Feet Under – Oldie but goodie – Amazon
  • Top of The Lake – Amazing Elizabeth Moss miniseries. So SO good – Netflix
  • Wolf Hall – Amazon
  • Flight of the Conchords – Amazon
  • Peaky Blinders – Netflix
  • Parenthood – Netflix
  • Firefly – Netflix
  • Buffy  – Nowhere at present. Comes and goes from Netflix


After reading the update I want to second Bloodline, which was frickin awesome. And as a caveat say that The Keepers was an amazing documentary, but there’s some really brutal details in there. It might not be something you want to watch if you’re feeling especially vulnerable.
