Top 5 + 1 Netflix Shows

Interestingly enough, when I was drinking I never binged.  I just drank every day. Happily, that is in the past.

Totally addicted.  Plus, there are no commercials.  Woohoo!  For me to watch a show on Netflix it has to 1) not be a movie, 2) have a million, or at least four, seasons and 3) I have to like the pilot in the first five minutes or I’m done with it.

Exactly the same as I am with books.

So here it is, folks.  My top 5 Netflix shows. Plus 1.


  1.  Burn Notice.  I came late to this series but am completely obsessed with it.  I have watched all of the episodes twice, and I have 3 favorite episodes that I’ve watched multiple times.  It’s funny without being a sitcom (I abhor sitcoms) and the characters are perfect.  Good writing, good actors.  This has stayed in the top position for months and months.
  2. Jessica Jones.  jessica jonesThis is a fabulous Netflix original series. Netflix has teamed up with Marvel for a group of shows.  One of the best shows I’ve ever seen, and the most interesting female character in recorded history. Well, maybe that’s an exaggeration. I might watch it again tonight.  And for people like me who don’t like the comic book heroes, this is completely different.  Very dark. Not for kids.

daredevil3. Daredevil. Another Netflix/Marvel original series.  I don’t like it as much as Jessica Jones, but she’s a tough act to follow. When next season comes out I’ll still watch Daredevil.  I think.

foyles war4. Foyle’s War.  You know I love it when it’s at Season 9.  This crime drama starts out in WWII and is now in the Cold War.  Michael Kitchen is wonderful as Inspector Christopher Foyle.  Plus I’m a sucker for British crime shows.

numb3rs5. NUMB3RS.  I was engrossed with this show and binged this more than the others. Like 8 hours at a time binged.  Great characters and a really unique storyline.  But I have no interest in watching the episodes again. I don’t know why.


Now for the +1.  My current like-it-so-much-that-I-fall-asleep-with-my-earbuds-still-in Netflix show is …..Person of Interest.  This is a J.J.Abrams show which automatically makes it top-notch.  And he teams up again with Michael Emerson of LOST fame. The storyline is uniquely preposterous with just enough 1984 to make you think just maybe…….

    I’ve seen Jessica Jones, and I watched Person of Interest when it was on TV. But it hasn’t returned this season yet, so I’m not sure if it was canceled or not. Kind of left us hanging if it was.

    Love Person of Interest although I think the last couple of seasons it was starting to get a tad over the top.

    I wish they would put this show on national TV. I watched every chance I could when it was on USA. This is like the new Miami Vice & Hawaii 5-0 in a nutshell!
    , I’m addicted! Truly needs to be on internet Lenovo TV & or ABC TV. Maybe I should call my uncle Phillip(Retired ABC TV (Retired Exec. for soap operas & ESPN 1&2), busy as he is & put a bug in his ear! Lol/lml?

    You need to watch Making A Murder! Though it will probably drive you insane. I had to google pictures of puppies after the first episode.
