Looking for some TV Show Recommendations.

I'm trying to find some shows to binge watch that are already finished, aren't 10 seasons long, and have an actual ending.

Some of my favorite shows are Lost, Sherlock, Downton Abbey, Fringe, Warehouse 13, Person of Interest, Leverage, The Flash, and The Office.

Penny Dreadful - but only if you're good with the horror element of it

Re: Looking for some TV Show Recommendations.

Thanks. I'll put it on my list to watch.

sons of anarchy and breaking bad. Don't think I've met someone who hasn't liked breaking bad.

Re: Looking for some TV Show Recommendations.

my favorite show is orphan black.. I try to keep up with 85 shows right now.. most are cable dramas... but the reason I put orphan black on top of the likes of game of thrones.. walking dead.. and others is mostly credited to the main actress who plays a mulitiude of clones of herself... each with their own personalities. since you like scifi.. I figure you'll probably enjoy this one as well.. expecially with a female led series like alias.

stranger things is pretty great as well. so is 12 monkeys if you like time travel.

Re: Looking for some TV Show Recommendations.

Orphan Black is one that I've been wanting to see. I think I heard that this is the last season, so I'll be watching the series as soon as the last season is added to Amazon Prime.

I love Stranger Things! Ready for Season 2 now.

I saw the movie 12 Monkeys back in the day. Is the show similar?

NY-LON (2004, TV mini-series, 7 episodes, romantic-comedy-drama.
Rather good, but with an incomplete ending as they were not given a second season.)

You might enjoy watching some of these Mini-series:

I, Claudius (1976) - like a soap set in ancient Rome, superb acting (Derek Jacobi, Siân Phillips, Brian Blessed, John Hurt)

Peter the Great (1986) - beautifully made, with an exciting all star cast: Maximilian Schell, Omar Sharif, Vanessa Redgrave, Laurence Olivier, Trevor Howard, Ursula Andress

Strumpet City (1980)
Lost Empires (1986)
The Barchester Chronicles (1982)
Cambridge Spies (2003)
Framed (1992)

Re: Looking for some TV Show Recommendations.

BrainDead (2016) Brilliant and I'm pretty sure it's a one season only gem of a show.

Re: Looking for some TV Show Recommendations.

American and Danish versions of the Killing but both very different, watch them in this order

Forbrydelsen http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0826760/?ref_=nv_sr_3

The Killing http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1637727/?ref_=nv_sr_1

Re: Looking for some TV Show Recommendations.

Here are a couple shows that I enjoyed that follow all 3 of your criteria (I think.)

6 Feet Under (Drama)

30 Rock (Comedy)

Anything by Joss Whedon (Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse: all have an element of fantasy or sci-fi)


Hopefully I'll think of a couple more.
