    Next box set to get in to

    Next box set to get in to 13th May 18 at 8:48 PM
    Finished watching breaking bad after a 3 week binge session other day. Now feel a bit down, same feeling I had at the end of Arsenal's invincible season, it's something i know I'll never experience again.

    Before I started on breaking bad, I managed to get part way through season 4 of walking dead before getting bored, new star trek series was ok, black mirror had its moments. I think I peaked too early, I don't think there can be another show out there that will hold me the same way or have me thinking of it long after an episode has finished.

    Any recommendations? I know there's better call Saul but imo it'll be like watching an REM tribute band after watching the real thing. Have I completed Netflix now?

    Never watched a boxed set. Not really sure what one is.

    Been slogging my way through Greys Anatomy for a while now (it's currently on Amazon Prime). We're now on season 12. It's highly compulsive.

    As for Netflix, have you looked at any of the Marvel stuff? Start with Daredevil and Jessica Jones, both of which are excellent.

    Better Call Saul is actually very good. It's a totally different style of show though, it's much slower paced.

    I like comedy. Meet the Goldbergs has me in stitches every episode.

    I'm the only person in the Universe who doesn't like Breaking Bad' it seems so we might not have similar tastes but if I had to recommend a boxset series then it has to be Game of Thrones. For me it is the best tv show in history and I find it hard to believe there are people who think otherwise.

    Stranger Things definitely.
    I also like Lucifer, but I know that I really shouldn't.
