    Default Television Series?

    What are your favorite TV series? New or old, on Netflix or otherwise.

    DH and I have enjoyed watching together:
    Downtown Abby (first few seasons)
    Mad Men (gave up in season 4)
    LOST
    Turn (just watched our last episode)

    We're looking for something new to watch together. I don't mind sci-fi or mysteries, he doesn't mind period pieces but I'm really not into a lot of violence (one or two scenes to move a mystery along is different than an hour of murders) but we need to figure something out together.... Suggestions??

    I rarely watch regular TV and stick to Netflix, Acorn (all British - love it) or such. Some of my favorites to binge watch are:
    Midsomer Murders (really great and 18 seasons so far)
    Inspector Morse
    Inspector Lewis (spin off from Morse)
    George Gently (mystery)
    Death in Paradise (murder mystery with humor)
    Doc Martin
    Numb3rs (not on Netflix but is available on Amazon Prime)
    Murdoch Mysteries
    Heartland (great family series from Canada)

    Hope you enjoy some of these.

    Law and Order - re runs much better than most new shows
    Masterpiece Mysteries - right now new final season begins for Inspector Lewis.
    Like Endeavor(young Morse) and Grantchester (young minster who drinks a lot and likes jazz) also but DH doesn't.
    Wish I could get the Morse shows and Prime Suspect from years ago, maybe it's time to check out Netflix
    I was following Call The Midwife - besides the main theme I saw how it contrasted so much from life here in US after WWII.
    Everyone used bikes, food and staples still rationed and very little new housing.
    Think I would like Dr. Blake Mysteries (set in Australia in the 50s) will see if we can get it on our cable.

    DH likes sports discussion shows - I call them The Yelling Guys because they all seem to be yelling over each other. I could be prejudiced because I'm not interested in sports, Only sports show I can stand is Mike and Mike in the mornings, their voices don't annoy me and I treat the show like background music while I think about other things.

    The only series I have ever binged on was Doc Martin. I can hardy wait for the final season to be aired on American TV this Fall.

    I have to admit I was obsessed with Breaking Bad on Netflix. The show goes against all my morals but I as hooked from the first episode. I've also enjoyed Call the Midwife and Gray's Anatomy.
