What are the best Netflix shows, NOT counting the three Best Drama/Comedy Series nominees “House of Cards,” “Orange is the New Black” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”? I’m in the mood to start a new show or two.October 14, 2015 at 4:40 pm #363656
1) Bloodline (although I know you already watched it!)
2) Jane the Virgin (just added this week; Gina Rodriguez is great. Kind of corny but cute show)
3) How to Get Away With Murder
4) Narcos (was not a big fan of it, but I know a lot of people rave about it)October 14, 2015 at 5:08 pm #363657
Bloodline, Bojack Horseman (season 2 is for me one of the best things I watch this year), Wet Hot American Summer and Narcos.October 14, 2015 at 6:15 pm #363658
BOJACK FUCKING HORSEMAN FTW!October 14, 2015 at 7:58 pm #363659
I mean if we’re talking about shows that aren’t airing somewhere else (in America at least) then Scrotall Recall, easy. It’s hilarious and surprisingly emotional, and honestly you could get through the whole season in a couple hours so why not just give it a shot. And not many people watch it so I’d be interested to hear what anyone thinks if they do.October 14, 2015 at 8:08 pm #363660
Bojack Horseman surprised me a lot. It’s definely in my top 10 this year, its writing is one of the sharpest out there. And I’m really enjoying Narcos (didn’t finish the season yet) as well.October 14, 2015 at 8:27 pm #363661
Gillian Anderson, bitches!October 14, 2015 at 8:58 pm #363662
Oh yeah, The Fall is also incredible!October 15, 2015 at 8:53 am #363663
Well Sense8 hasn’t been tested at the Emmys yet, but it’s definitely my favourite show on Netflix. Ever.October 15, 2015 at 11:45 am #363664
Not sure about its previous eligibility but I’m pretty sure Netflix is the only place in the US to get BLACK MIRROR. It’s basically a modern Twilight Zone type show dealing with technology with each of the two seasons comprising three or four long episodes (very similar to Sherlock).
Netflix is going to be independently (I think?) producing a third season so maybe something to look out for in the upcoming Emmy race. I know that Jon Hamm starred in an episode of the previous season and had the show been on the Emmy radar at all he could have easily garnered some type of nomination (not really sure what category the show would be placed into).October 15, 2015 at 12:02 pm #363665
I would say Sense8 and Bloodline definitely have that bingewatch factor I loved w/HoC, OITNB and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
They both start off somewhat slow and shaky but turn into some pretty decent, if not riveting, dramas.
Grace & Frankie is a cute little comedy that surprised me.October 15, 2015 at 5:09 pm #363666
Not sure if “Grace and Frankie” counts, since Tomlin did get a nom, but I loved it from start to finish (better than UKS, and I loved that too). Heartwarming and hilarious. Both Tomlin and Fonda should have received nominations.October 17, 2015 at 12:11 pm #363668
1. Bojack Horseman
3. Orange is the New Black
4. Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp
5. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
6. Grace and Frankie
8. Marco Polo
11. House of Cards

Although I would definitely recommend Bloodline, I don’t think it counts in this case as it already got acting nominations for Kyle Chandler and Ben Mendelsohn. In addition, Grace and Frankie shouldn’t be eligible for this list as it got a nomination for Lily Tomlin.
