Hey all! I need some little help here, I'm out of tv series to watch and I don't know what to watch next.
I'm going to watch this with my family so nothing japanese lol
I've watched breaking bad, game of thrones, the wire, prison break, better call saul, the walking dead, fringe, lost, person of interest, alias, true detective (1st season), fargo, stranger things, dr house.
I've selected those four but feel free to suggest other series too: house of cards, american horror story, black mirror, making a murderer. What do you suggest to pick from those and why?

For something a little obscure, check out Chance. Even though Hugh Laurie plays a doctor, it's nothing like House...but just as good.
More obvious ones are Jessica Jones, Peaky Blinders, Westworld, The Americans, Fringe.
If you don't mind something a little older, Deadwood came out around the same time as the Wire and it's one of my favorites. The story arc is of a small frontier town progressing from lawlessness to law and order over the course of the series. There's some really great acting and characters. Rumor is they are finally making a movie which will continue/wrap up the storyline.
Oh and Narcos was pretty good. I really love historical dramas. The actors look pretty much like the real people and filmed in some of the same locations as the real events. They also do a good job of mixing in archival footage of the actual people and events to help with authenticity. Although some people and events were changed, most of the pivotal events that we know about Pablo Escobar were faithfully portrayed in the series.
I just finished watching Rome and it was one of the best series I've ever watched, for sure it's in the top 3.
How about Petticoat Junction?
The Flash, Continuum, Granada's Sherlock Holmes, Stargate SG1 (1 season is rocky and you can skip most of it), Orphan Black, Eureka, Dark Matter.
If you don't mind going a bit reteo, Quantum Leal, Star Trek: The Next Generation (skip season 1), and Babylon 5 are great.
Fringe is my favorite of all time, but seems like you watched it!! I really want to rewatch it sometime soon.
Currently watching "Westworld" that it's getting good and also love Narcos and Suits!
I'd like to amend my list of recommendations: Goliath (on Amazon). Best cop/legal drama I've seen since The Wire. So ridiculously well made and acted. And the pacing is just beautiful.
American television is getting really good. Some of these cable/Internet shows are better than most Oscar winning movies. I'm telling you, if all the awesomeness in this show was crammed into a movie, it would win every Oscar this year.

Westworld is great. Unfortunately, the season finale just aired, and HBO is going to take their sweet time with season 2. ETA 2018, from what I read.
if you haven't seen The Sopranos yet, it's never too late. Although it does have that 90's feeling to it.
