Can someone recommend a good boxset?

Just finished Mr Mercedes and looking for the next watch. Netflix and Amazon Prime preferably.

Fully recommend Sex Education.

From Sky if accessible try... Brassic and Gangs of London.

You've probably done Breaking Bad, but if not you really should....and then it's offshoot Better Call Saul; both on Netflix.

The Bureau. French secret service - incredibly, it's based on real events.
On a par with The Wire & The Sopranos.

If you liked Spiral (brilliant), try Braquo - it's Spiral on steroids.
Hap & Leonard. Bosch (then read the books by Joe Lansdale and Michael Connelly respectively).

BBC4 on Saturday night at 9pm is usually top drawer for foreign crime/noir.

Justified.
I think it's on Prime at the moment.

All but the latest series of Narcos on Netflix are absolutely brilliant, especially series 1 and 2 that focus on Pablo Escobar.

I found the most recent one a bit ponderous.

As others have said breaking bad is good so is Hunters on prime.

If you don't mind a subtitled foreign drama, All4 Walter Presents has some great European crime series.

Caliphate is really good flips between Syria and Sweden.
Gives an insight on how Western muslims are recruited by terrorist organisations pretty harrowing in parts but very well done.

Its on Netflix

Very good series, the books are even better.

Netflix:

The Last Dance - About Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls. I'm not a basketball fan, but this behind the scenes documentary is superb.

Last Kingdom - Some Viking action.

Afterlife - Ricky Gervais, going about his life after his wife dies of cancer.

The Punisher

Making of a Murderer

Manhunt Unabomber

The Aaron Hernandez Story - This is absolutely superb, true story of an American Footballer who goes on a bit of a rampage.

When They See Us - True story of a load of young black lads who got framed for a murder in Central Park, superb as well.

I want a mate like Flashberryjacks, who wears a Barnsley jersey with "Swans are my second team" on the back.

Cuckoo (BBC3, either four or five series on IPlayer). Pretty funny for a 21st century sitcom.

One of the most underseen and underrated TV shows of the last ten years.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

Right. A question to those who recommended Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.

I started on BB, didn't like it, gave up, tried it again, gave up, and so on for ages. It was around episode 4 or 5 that I thought "Hey, this is good". From that point on I was hooked.

I tried BCS and didn't like it so gave up. Not been back.

Did anyone else feel the same about BCS initially but persisted and discovered it was ace?

Can't find Blaster Jack. Is that its actual name?

( I enjoyed the sitcom Lovesick. I think it was on Netflix. Very sweet).

Watched a bit of the first season. Couldn't get into it. Enjoyed BB but don't think it deserves the hype it gets. Probably won't bother with BCS again.

Yeah, BCS was a load of fanny.

The Confession Killer on Netflix is good if you liked Making a Murderer or The Staircase.

On a much lighter note, Netflix shows Brooklyn 99 which is an entertaining NYPD slapstick comedy series.

Poll: Fox Hunting - what do you think?

Oh, forgot to mention. I watched all the episodes of Dexter and I dunno, maybe because It spoke to my inner psychopath, I thought it was the best tv I ever watched.

Really enjoyed BCS. The bird who plays Kim Wexler is pure filth.
