General / Off-Topic What are some good Netflix shows I should watch?

I’m currently spending a lot of time hunting for mats. What are good shows I should watch on Nextlix? Something like a talking head style documentary or some mindless TV shows I don’t have to stare at to understand.
 
Peaky Blinders

Don't know if it's the same in the US as the UK but most of Brooklyn Nine Nine is on Netflix. That's a great TV show that doesn't require your undivided attention. There's also the Good Place which requires a little bit more investment but not much.
 
Red Dwarf, Homeland, The Inexplicable Universe, Breaking Bad, The Expanse, Spooks, Dead Set, Black Mirror, Orphan Black, Planet Earth, Top Gear, Monster Garage.
 
Two shows I'm absolutely loving at the moment - one is The Crown which I have to say is staggeringly good. I mean, if this were a film it would be dripping in Oscars! And the other is James Acaster's Repertoire, a series of four 40 minute standup shows from the British comedian which are works of pure genius.

Yep and Yep.

Daredevil & The Punisher are both excellent.
 
Watching Happy! but only 1 episode a day.
Actually, upon reflection, it's a show that is more enjoyable with undivided attention, so never mind.
 
There are some great movies on Netlix. The creator of Moon has his movie here.. "Mute".

"Arrival" is also there as well. That is a brilliant movie.


As for series, I'd recommend The Expanse, Breaking Bad, and Better Call Saul

...and also Rick and Morty

I never took Meloni's Law & Order role seriously after watching HBO's Oz so this happy role suits him perfectly even though I think the show is overrated but his great acting makes up for it.
