    So I don't actually need any advice, I've got a few lined up, but I figured it would be fun to post TV shows people here are watching or have watched in the past that are worth watching. Just 1 rule. No more than 5 TV shows per person. You get 5...that's it. (Deal with it!)

    I'll start.

    1)breaking bad
    2) Battlestar Galactica (new)
    3)Firefly & the movie serenity (super quick watch)
    4)black mirror
    5)stranger things.

    Geeze I can only pick 5....I have like 30!...lol

    I'll tell ya what, I'm not going to name the usual Breaking Bad's, Game of Thrones, Soprano's, The Wire's, Band of Brothers of the world, I'm going to list 5 series that I've seen in the past that are on the "unsung" or "underrated" side. These are series that most of y'all haven't seen or maybe you are wanting to see it.

    Anyways, here goes and this is in order of watchability.

    1. Justified-Netflix. No one talks about this show and it certainly doesn't get the credit it deserves which is criminal. This show is in my top 5 of all time but no one really has watched it and it's startling. It's serious and peeps die but it doesn't take it's self too seriously. It's also one of the funniest drama's you'll ever watch as some of the characters are very memorable. I think if I had another kid, I'd name him Raylan...lol. Anyways, go watch it...you won't regret it!!

    2. Peaky Blinders-Netflix. I've probably mentioned this show a few dozen times to you guys but if any of y'all were wanting to watch it but putting it off, well now due to this zombie apocalypse shit we are dealing with, now you have the time to invest some time into this phenomenal show. Now I'm a big fan of British TV series and so maybe I'm biased but I'd say Peaky is the best show that most of y'all have never seen!

    3. Hunters-Amazon Prime. I just finished this new series a few days ago and I loved it. It has a Inglorious Bastards/Tarantino type vibe to it. I couldn't get enough of it. I think I binged it in 2 nights and was up to 4 AM on a weekday one of those nights....argggg...lol

    4. Narcos-Netflix. I finished the 4th season of this masterpiece...it is so f'n good. 1rst season deals with Pablo Escobar...2nd season deals with the Cali Cartel and the 3rd and 4th seasons are based in Mexico and how the El Chapo's of the world came to be. If your like me and the whole drug/cartel shit intrigues you, well this show if for you. Great acting as well.

    5. Ozark-Netflix. Gotta say that at first I didn't think it was going to be all that good. But dang was I wrong. I was hooked from the get go and if any of y'all haven't seen it, you'll get hooked as well. Great acting again and pretty funny as well.

    With politics, pandemics, and global recessions, sometimes I just want to watch something upbeat. Here are five Netflix shows where nothing bad happens, or at least everything is alright at the end:

    Somebody Feed Phil (Food)
    Parks and Recreation (Comedy)
    Star Trek: The Next Generation (Sci-Fi)
    The Repair Shop (Docuseries)
    Merlin (Fantasy)

    Never saw Breaking Bad but I agree with the other four, although I thought BSG ran out of steam after the first couple of seasons.

    great choices man! About to start Hunters right now! Narcos is just amazing. People said it isn’t as good without Escobar but it’s still pretty damn awesome

    The Good Place might be my favorite network sitcom ever. Just a brilliant show all around.

    Toast of London - batshit crazy and glorious British "sitcom".
    Man Down - see above.
    Terrace House - if you watch with your S/O. The hosts are really funny.
    Another vote for Parks and Rec.
    The Chef Show is pretty good.

    Thx bro...glad to hear you like some of my choices as well.

    Look fwd to reading your thoughts about Hunters. I'd be shocked if you weren't like me and chomping at the bit for the 2nd season.

    Totally agree with your comments about Narcos. I was wondering myself how the series could be as good as the phenomonal 1st season which was all about the Escobar cartel in Columbia in the 80's.

    But, the next 3 seasons were just as good and I have to believe there will be another season or two.

    If you get a chance down the road, you have to watch Justified...it's so friggen good. Matter of fact I'm going to watch it again after I finish watching Designated Survior which I'm currently in the middle of the first season. I have to admit, this series is pretty good as well if you also like political intrigue and stuff like that as I do.

    In the same political intrigue light, House of Cards is also an amazing series that is a must watch.

    Bottom line peeps, we are going to be inside alot more than we ever have and there are no Ranger games and the baseball season to watch for a few months. So why not watch some of these great series that are available to us.

    Kudos to Inferno for starting this thread...:)

    I pretty much agree with all the picks above.

    One that has not been mentioned and that I feel is criminally underrated is...

    BOSCH!

    Absolutely perfect.


    Edit:

    The Knick as well. Too good, too underrated.

    It’s new compared to the 1980 one, at any rate.

    If you like Stranger Things I would recommend the German series "Dark". The main chars are a bit older, everything is a bit darker, and if you don't like subs you will have to survive not so good dubbing (the original is in German).

    Three severely underrated shows that I cannot recommend enough:

    1. Escape at Dannemora (Hulu)
    2. Patriot (Amazon)
    3. Fleabag (Amazon)

    Battlestar Galactica - best TV sci fi in the history of television, IMHO
    Firefly/Serenity - could've been but waaaaay too short. Great show.
    Game of Thrones
    Vikings
    Justified
