    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.

    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)

    Bloodline, Bojack Horseman (season 2 is for me one of the best things I watch this year), Wet Hot American Summer and Narcos.

    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.

    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.

    Well Sense8 hasn’t been tested at the Emmys yet, but it’s definitely my favourite show on Netflix. Ever.

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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.
