    All on Netflix

    Money Heist - only downside is either dubbed or subtitles but a fantastic show and 4th season just dropped

    Designated Survivor - bummed it got cancelled after 3 seasons but really sucks you in

    I watched Tiger King because of all the hype.

    Meh. Best suited to merkins who enjoy reality multiple car crashes in redneck USA.

    I’m assuming you have watched Game of Thrones so in no particular order:

    Stranger Things
    Ozark
    Sons of Anarchy
    Mayans MC
    Bloodline
    Better Call Saul
    The Walking Dead

    If you want some comedy:

    Arrested Development
    Parks and Recreation
    The Office
    Shameless

    I wish I had the patience to sit down and watch TV. Might make this self-isolation period more manageable.

    No. I watched Seinfeld in the 90s. And since then half of Smallville.
    Other then that some sport and the news now and then. Occassionaly rage.
    So not seen any tv series since about 1999/ 2000.....

    If you want some insight into the current environment check out Designated Survivor on Netflix
    In Season 2 episode 3 they actually preempt what we are currently with the virus

    Anyway from Disney

    The World According to Jeff Goldblum
    The Mandalorian was ok but I wouldn’t recommend binge watching it
    70s Spider-Man cartoon
    Old Simpsons - I’m going through to see when it jumped the shark

    On Amazon Prime:

    The Grand Tour - it's essentially Top Gear, but because it's on a streaming service, they can be a bit more...open...what's not to love?

    Jack Ryan - great spy thriller. John Krasinski (Jim from The Office USA) is fantastic.

    The Widow - starts off slow, but really makes you think. Can be overly grandiose, and preachy, but it still tells a rock-solid story.

    On Netflix:

    The Stranger - must-watch. Loses steam over the final two episodes, but it's brilliant.

    Safe - not as good as The Stranger, but still a gripping drama.

    El Chema - it's very good, and will grab you instantly.
