Looking Ahead to Change: Little by Little
I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I don't think I ever really did, but the last decade or two would have been enough to stifle that impulse. I've just been too aware that I don't have that much control over what happens in my life.

    Yooooooooooooo

    So since becoming chronically ill I have rekindled my love for seriously good TV shows!

    I'm in need of some good series to get my teeth into,

    so far i've been enjoying: homeland, weeds, breaking bad, black mirror, heroes, mr robot, sense 8, and true detective

    Would like some more really good shows to start watching, they can be any genre or style - comedy, drama etc. basicaly some good old escapism! Or if you've seen a great film recently please add it below!

    Thanks !!

    Orphan Black is excellent.

    If you liked Weeds, you will likely enjoy 'Orange is the New Black' -- produced by the same person who did Weeds.

    Nurse Jackie is a good one.

    The Americans is pretty cool. Two Russian spies serving in USA in the 80's.

    Masters of Sex is also fun to watch.

    I second Orange is the New Black, based on the shows you like. If you like off beat comedy, check out Louie.

    Masters of Sex also fascinating, and am starting to get into Ray Donovan, if you like crime, Sopranos- like shows.

    Walking Dead is great. I just started watching Ascension which seems pretty interesting so far.

    And Luther.
    And, for pure escapism, The Blacklist. Silly, but it's got Alan Shore in it. I mean James Spader.

    I never tire of rewatching all the episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel.
    Or the X Files, for that matter, which will be coming back soon for six new episodes--
    oh! which reminds me that David Lynch is making new episodes of Twin Peaks, so
    now's a good time to go and watch all of those, too!!
    Are our eyes bleeding yet?

    Love Orphan Black. Tatiana Maslany is amasing.
    If you like anything in the dark comic book genre Arrow is good.

    There's Person of Interest. And with a youngish cast - Scorpion.

    Also agree How to get away with Murder is very good. And who doesn't love Buffy.

    Have you seen Prison Break? It is a must see. Especially the two first seasons.

    And what about Breaking Bad's spinoff "Better Call Saul"?

    I just watched Catastrophe on Netflix and thought it was pretty great.

    I also liked the first season of Chasing Life.

    Gilmore Girls if you haven't seen it.
