nickrout: US Killing or the original?


It'll be the US version as the Danish only has three series.
We've just finished binging on season two of the US one, and that only a few days after doing the same with season one. Am not totally happy with the resolution in season two but still good TV.

Does anyone know where we can find season two of The Bridge (Dane/Swede original)? None of the Netflix sites appear to have this and we're keen on trying this as the first season was great.

Ive been really enjoying some of the UK shows that are on there.. 
Im feeling a bit like my parents but.. There is just something I like about a UK drama....

A couple me and my wife enjoyed were..

Broadchurch, Happy Valley, Lewis & The Fall..

Broadchurch might not be on Netflix im not sure, but if you find it around its well worth a watch....

Also quite enjoyed The League.. If you enjoy Workaholics or similar stupid comedy then its great..

I enjoyed Broadchurch. Sherlock is very good and Breaking Bad is an absolute must! I also enjoy Orange is the New Black and love Suits - can't believe nobody else has mentioned that one. House of Cards looks good too, have only watched the first few. I liked Scandal too but haven't watched them all.

Definitely agree about Breaking Bad, House of Cards and a few of the other mentioned shows. 

But no one has mentioned Mad Men.  As a generalistion, probably not the sort of show to appeal to a stereotypical geekzone member, but well worth it.  Bags of style and won truckloads of awards.

We're currently working our way through Friday Night Lights and are really enjoying it.

Since getting Netflix a few months ago we've watched IT Crowd, Breaking Bad and have just completed all 9 seasons of How I Met Your Mother.
I love being able to watch the series straight through without adverts and without having to wait until the following week to see the next episode.

Started on Sons of Anarchy a couple of weeks ago, am about halfway through season 2. Did not watch it on TV (wife saw the shorts and decreed we would not be watching that). Wife has watched all but one of the ones I have watched on NF, and even after bingeing on Sunday on it, she wanted to watch more.

+1 for Peaky Blinders - best thing I have seen on TV in ages (Post WWI gangster type saga set in England). Series 1 on Netflix and series 2 currently showing on BBC  iplayer (if you are a getflix subscriber).

Also Love/Hate is very good too.

I am late to this thread, but Mad Men is top notch. Probably only behind House of Cards in terms of story really.

Scandal is produced by Shondaland, the same one behind Greys Anatomy, and now How to Get Away with Murder.

Scandal started ok, but the whole "romance" thing is... unbelievable. Lots of twists though.
