    I thought better call Saul was really good.
    He's a good actor Bob Odendirk

    Sonic Highways is a brilliant series if you like good music

    House of Cards is good

    The Get Down is really good if you like a spot of hip-hop.

    Best episode of Sonic Highways for me was the Seattle one, was just so nice to hear Dave talk about Nirvana and Kurt.

    It's a fantastic series.

    Very good. I would say though that the show really gets great from season 2 onwards. The first season is still really good though.

    It's a HBO series, so you know what to expect quality-wise.

    Band of Brothers is still the best HBO (and for me, best ever, yes over GoT) tv series.

    Though I imagine most on here have seen that already.

    I have watched every episode of Breaking Bad binge style, I am now on with Better Call Saul, which TBH is very slow.

    Tried watching it a few times and though it’s clearly good, I’ve struggled to get it consistently going (think I’m up to about episode 5 of series 1 – that’s over about three years too).

    The main reason is that, ultimately, I’m not that interested in US politics, in fact, despite liking a lot of American culture, I don’t find the country, from afar, that interesting - nevermind fascinating.

    The other big reason is that I ****ing loved the British original, so can’t help but parallel and, to boot, I am extremely interested in British politics.

    However, I’m sure that if I get through S1, it’d clickety click though, hence why I’m slowly keepin’ on keepin’ on.

    Some good stuff on there, some mentioned on here and those that are not particularly Spiral, Borgen, The Bridge.

    Also, been meaning to give The Bureau a go for a while - did check a year or so ago but could't find a copy (I'm referring to the French series in case it's summat else - think it's called something like The Office of Legends for a literal translation).

    Un Village Francais is pretty class if anyone likes a good WW2 series

    Can't argue with those but still not got round to watching series 2 of Narcos yet and Gomorrah seems to have gone stellar over the last year or so.

    Feel free to add to it, even if it's a thumbs up to one already listed, I add usernames next to suggestions as you often find you might have the same taste as someone else.

    Band of Brothers got quite a few mentions, (haven't seen it) I was tempted to start watching it a few months back but saw 2001 and it put me off but seeing more votes for it on here and now GoT has finished for two years I'm going to have to start watching.
