We don’t have cable so we watch a lot of Netflix. We’ve watched a lot of hits and several misses. Here are our top ten favorite shows that are currently available on Netflix!
1. Battle Star Galactica – Have you seen the Portlandia (another great Netflix show) sketch about BSG? It’s only a slightly exaggerated version of what actually happened to us. Seriously guys, the writing on this show is so good. Give it a chance.
2. Arrested Development – Hilarious. Cancelled too soon. Lots of cameos. Your parents probably wont get it.
3. Firefly – Space western. Enough said.
4. Parks and Recreation – I’ll be honest, season 1 isn’t that incredible BUT if you can power through the first 8 episodes, you’re in for a real treat once season 2 starts. Ron Swanson is like no one else.
5. Jericho – Nuclear blasts and how a small town figures out how to survive in the aftermath.
6. Hell on Wheels – Our most recent discovery! Hell on Wheels is an AMC drama that takes place in 1965. It’s story line focuses on the building of the Union Pacific railroad.
7. The Walking Dead – Zombies!!!
8. Freaks and Geeks – Again, cancelled too soon. See James Franco, Seth Rogen and Jason Segel when they were babies!
9. The Guild – Ok, this is technically web series, BUT Netflix has is categorized as a tv show so I’m just going with it. Basically, misfit gamers are forces to interact in real life. I love this show and I’ve never even gamed.
10. X-Files – 9 seasons of paranormal FIB investigating bliss.
Do you love these shows as much as we do? What are some of your favorites?
