    I was just talking to my wife about that yesterday, didn't know it returns next month...definitely one of the best shows I watched last year.

    Watched it a few months back so I'm gonna need a refresher, maybe I'll get her in on it this time around.

    Fantastic show! If Breaking Bad didn't exist, it would've been my top show of 2013.

    Can't wait for Season 2.
  4. Only caught a couple episodes, if you like it I'd recommend checking out the original BBC show (which is also on Netflix).

    Love it. Can't wait for season two along with Orange is the new Black. Netflix for the win. Well, tie with Showtime. Love Shameless as well.
  7. Check out the British version of Shameless if you like the US one (I like US shows but generally not too fond of US remakes).

    Orange is the new black is an awesome show, I didn't expect much going into it, it popped up as a new by Netflix for Netflix show, so I thought I'd give it a bash. Watched the entire season in only a few days!

    Just got through all the episodes. Fantastic show. Kevin Spacey is great. I almost bailed on it early on because or my complete disinterest in politics, but it was very good.

    I just finished S2 a week ago. Amazing show. I'll have to watch the British one now.

    If you guys like Spacey's Frank Underwood, check out Casino Jack. He plays Jack Abramoff in that movie. Also on netflix.

    I just binged-watched seasons 1 & 2--although I'm waiting to watch the last episode from S2. What a great show! Is The West Wing this good (obviously not HBO)?

    S2 last Epi is the best.

    The binge watching element is what's great but also kinda sucks about Netflix shows. Either you watch them all and then you're stuck waiting for a new season, or you exercise self control and ration out the episodes.

    I have learned to do a mix. I will "allow myself" a certain number of episodes. If one is particularly awesome, I might say (out loud, because I'm old enough that I can talk to myself all I want,) "OK, ONE MORE."

    I did a great job of rationing Season 2 of Orange is the New Black.

    House of Cards I usually do two episodes, or three at the max. Season 3 I will mete out very carefully.

    Now that I'm on track with Orange and House, it becomes like any network series. We watch one a week but of course we can play catch up if we have a busy week. We metered House 1&2 responsibly but we binged Orange: now we're jonesin' for both.

    Even though it sucks when it's over, I prefer to binge watch. I went through the first season of the Blacklist in a few days. Now I'm watching the new second season episodes as they come out on tv and it's really frustrating. Not to mention commercials.

    The Blacklist is great, by the way. Definitely worth binge watching (or normal watching) if you haven't seen it.
  17. Absolutely love House of Cards. I've been waiting impatiently for season 3. I tried getting into Orange is the New Black, but it just didn't do it for me. :(

    Orange is the New Black gets exponentially better as it goes along. The last episode of Season 2 has one of the great moments in TV right at the end!

  19. Anyone know when season three comes out? I haven't watched OITNB yet, but I hear nothing but good things about it.

    I've heard February but I don't think anything is definitive. There apparently all kinds of issues with the production of season 3.
