I’ve watched all of these except for Grace and Frankie.  Watching TV is my way of relaxing and resting my mind and while I was sick recently I looked after myself and rested, and watched the whole first season of Outlander, it took awhile for me to get into, but by the 3rd episode I was hooked.

THE BLACKLIST –  An American crime thriller television series about Raymond “Red” Reddington, a former U.S. Navy officer turned high-profile criminal, who voluntarily surrenders to the FBI after eluding capture for decades.

I like this list. Couple that I haven’t watched. Homeland is brilliant and I also enjoyed Crossing Lines.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife October 21, 2016 - 11:50 AM

oh I haven’t watched crossing lines, I’ll add that to my list! I’m waiting for a new season of Homeland, wonder when it comes out?

Rochelle October 21, 2016 - 5:42 PM

We’ve just finished watching Homeland too! Season 5 released last week but we’ve watched it too, Season 6 begins in January 2017!! I enjoyed Heartland, based in Canada and Amy is a horse miracle worker, lovely series for children to watch with you, esp if interested in horses:) Downtown Abbey has just released the final season too.

Colette October 21, 2016 - 4:12 PM

Narcos Season 1 & 2!

Tracey October 20, 2016 - 9:21 AM

Try “The Ranch” funny show with great actors

Katrina - The Organised Housewife October 21, 2016 - 11:51 AM

ooh sounds like one to watch with the hubby, thanks Tracey

Debbie October 22, 2016 - 3:53 PM

The ranch is good.

Carly October 20, 2016 - 10:17 AM

Orphan Black. A. Ma. Zing. I watched 3 seasons on netflix then had to go and buy Season 4 on Google Play cos I couldn’t wait. Now am devastated that I have to wait until next year for S5. Need to try some of your suggestions to fill the void ?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife October 21, 2016 - 11:53 AM

I tried Orphan black, but couldn’t get into it, maybe I should give it another go, you’ve persuaded me!

Carol January 19, 2017 - 5:41 PM

I was making a list of these movies and after Orphan Black I wrote. A.Ma.Zing !!! LOL. I didn’t realise it wasn’t a show until I’d written it down! How dumb am I?

Chatty Richardson October 20, 2016 - 10:49 AM

Love this list, I’ve watched some, this list gives me ideas that haven’t appeared on my Netflix ????

Katrina - The Organised Housewife October 21, 2016 - 11:53 AM

yes I think some were missing from mine too, it wasn’t until I searched it because someone recommended that I found it. Wish it would just show everything.

Nicole October 20, 2016 - 2:00 PM

OMG love suits!

Katrina - The Organised Housewife October 21, 2016 - 11:55 AM

Me too, I #teamharvey and I love the quirkness between mike and harvey, they make us laugh. Donna is a classic, don’t we all wish we could have a donna.

Donna October 20, 2016 - 7:40 PM

Love, love, love Outlander and Suits. I had to buy Season 2 of Outlander on Apple to continue watching it and then bought books 3-6 so you could say I am a bit addicted to it. Can’t wait to see more of Suits too! Narcos and House of Cards are also great. Lost Kingdom was ok. Didn’t realise Scandal was on Netflix, have been waiting to catch up on that for a while. Also watching Designated Survivor now, not sure I like the ‘one episode released per week’ format like normal TV, can’t binge watch 🙁

Katrina - The Organised Housewife October 21, 2016 - 11:56 AM

I watched Designated Survivor too, it wasn’t until the episode ended that I realised it was one a week…. that’s crazy. I like that netflix usually releases it all at once

Suz October 20, 2016 - 8:43 PM

” Rita” – loved this quirky show.

Stephane Closson October 21, 2016 - 11:35 AM

The Ranch, Frankie and Grace are both good. Can also watch Keeping Up Appearances on Netflix

Linda October 21, 2016 - 12:18 PM

Frankie and Grace I recommend. Such a great show.

Veggie Mama October 21, 2016 - 1:21 PM

I’m right into Broadchurch at the moment! But I have a hefty list of things I’m in the middle of watching – I started writing a post about it too! Haha great minds xo

Georgia October 21, 2016 - 2:42 PM

Really enjoyed peaky blinders and don’t trust the b$&@% in apartment 23.

Kasseyw October 21, 2016 - 5:33 PM

I totally agree with Orphan Black! Brilliant acting! I also got hooked on Nashville, Pretty Little liars, and lately Jane the Virgin 🙂

Leah October 21, 2016 - 7:01 PM

I think the name is the the ranch

Pramila Bellala October 21, 2016 - 11:15 PM

I just finished all the episodes and seasons of Parenthood and now I am watching Fosters.

Liz October 22, 2016 - 8:53 AM

Loving Brooklyn Nine Nine at the moment. Great for a laugh!

Michelle October 22, 2016 - 1:50 PM

I can’t find Outlander!!! I’m in the US…wonder if that affects anything?

Kelly October 22, 2016 - 3:34 PM

I loved Nashville – try that!

Debbie October 22, 2016 - 3:54 PM

The blacklist is a must watch… I love that show.

Heidi October 23, 2016 - 6:52 AM

My whole family binge-watched Stranger Things over the last holidays- it is so addictive and unique. I love that it’s set in the 80’s – the music, fashion, hairstyles and home decor are spot on!

Shireen October 23, 2016 - 7:12 AM

It takes an episode or two to get into Orphan Black but I assure you will become addicted. Definitely don’t watch with the kids.
For a family show Good Witch is a must watch.
The Fosters is a great family show if you have teenagers and it explores a lot of current issues.
Jane the Virgin is one of those shows you can watch again as it is a bit silly, as is The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
Frankie and Grace is wonderful. Awesome actors, interesting storyline.
Taxi Brooklyn has a good storyline worthwhile watching.
Longmire (5 seasons on Au Netflix) is well worth watching, on of my faves.
Crossing Lines was amazing.
The Paradise is awesome, suitable for tweens and teens if they like period stories.
Outlander is a must watch.
The Hinterland is also pretty good viewing.
Call the Midwife. 3 seasons on Netflix so I had to buy S4 and 5 on Apple. Based on the diary of a real midwife in the late 1950’s in Londons’ East End.
I’ve just finished watching The Pinkerton’s. Set in 1890’s Kansas City. Good show, only one season.

Nashville is on US Netflix. Best show.
Banshee is on US Netflix, loads of sex, drugs etc but an amazing storyline if you can get past all that.

OMG!! I look like I’m addicted.

JEANETTE October 24, 2016 - 6:22 AM

Nashville…love it….for those that don’t mind a bit of country

Carol October 25, 2016 - 4:58 PM

I can’t see Breaking Bad in any comments. THE best. It was really popular here in Canada, the USA and UK. Definitely addictive! Homeland was great, and Broadchurch. Catching up with latest season of Suits. Watched one episode of Rake (Australian!) and think we’ll enjoy it.

Megan January 19, 2017 - 5:02 PM

The crown

Carol January 19, 2017 - 6:02 PM

Definitely – we really enjoyed it.

Katrina January 21, 2017 - 6:25 AM

Frequency os another great show!

Debb April 17, 2017 - 7:31 PM

Would not watch it when hubby came in as thought he wouldn’t like it – But he sat down one day and started watching it – – he was as addicted as me – We so loved this series – Also told a girlfriend about this series – she absolutely loved it as well – Give it a go – ?

Lind April 21, 2017 - 10:51 PM
