NETFLIX RECOMMENDATIONS NEEDED!

So I finished binge watching The West Wing and have finished Designated Survivor.

 

Would love some ideas about what to watch. TV shows or movies, either is fine.

 

I do NOT care for fantasy, paranormal, science fiction or extremely sexual programs (a little is OK), no Jason Bourne type stuff either.

 

I'd love some ideas and "kid" movies and shows are fine too!

 

All ideas welcome and thank you.

The uk series "The body guard "is good , although I did not like it as much as designated survivor .

I never pay any attention to where a show originates.  Right now I'm up to episode 7 of Kevin Bacon in "City On a Hill".  It's a good show but his acting is off the charts.

 

I can't stop talking about how well he's acting in this show.

Grace and Frankie.  It stars Jane Fonda, Lilly Tomlin, Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston.  It's funny and heartwarming.  A good sense of humor helps when watching it.  There are 5 seasons I think.

Give Longmire, Dead to Me and the Kaminsky Method a try. Three totally different shows, but I enjoyed all of them.Longmire has quite a few seasons. It was one of those series that started on a cable channel, got cancelled, and was picked up by Netflix. The other two only have one season, but have both been picked for a second. Also Mindhunter. One complete season, season two starts next week.

Just discovered The Worst Witch on Netflix.

Like a Harry Potter but all girls.

Suitable for young teens, maybe 10 up or 8 up? and adultsSmiley Happy

Miss Fisher's murder mysteries.

Midsummer Murders

Grace and Frankie was really good.

I watched all of Gotham. It got not so good towards the end though.

All the British Mysteries are good.

There are Agatha Christie movies too. The ABC Murders.

Re: NETFLIX RECOMMENDATIONS NEEDED!

Thanks all! I've seen quite a few I've made a note of. There are a few I know about and don't appeal to me personally.

 

I'm definitely going to watch the Kevin Bacon series.

 

I appreciate ALL the input!
