Probably won't start it until The Bridge is done with its first season.
The advantage is that it is a British show. They wrap up their shows in a couple of seasons almost to a fault. Plus the only season so far is not 22 or 13 eps, it is only 8.

I have heard a few mixed reviews but I am excited to check it out.

Got Netflix a few days ago and I need some more shows to put into my rotation.

So far i've got:

House of Cards - Meh on the first episode, loved the second.
Luther - Awesome if not just for Idris Elba.
Breaking Bad - Love where it's going mid-way through season 2.
Arrested Development - Didn't expect much but i find it hilarious.
Archer - Re-watching it because sterling archer is amazing.
White Collar - The chemistry between Bomer and the other guy is gold
Modern Family - Re-watching just for Phil.

What do i need to watch?!

Breaking Bad, easily. Catch up before the end of the series. Final 8 episodes begin Sunday.

I don't love it enough to neglect everything else. I think I went into it with my expectations too high, just because of how much everyone loves it. It's a great show, though.

Mad Men, Sons of Anarchy, Lost, Prison Break are probably the big 4 that come to mind. Walking Dead would be up there as well, but they only have like the first two season on netflix, so i'd advise to wait until the get more on

House of Cards - Meh on the first episode, loved the second. Worthless show.
Luther - Awesome if not just for Idris Elba. Awesome
Breaking Bad - Love where it's going mid-way through season 2. Best show on TV
Arrested Development - Didn't expect much but i find it hilarious. WATCH THIS
Archer - Re-watching it because sterling archer is amazing.Rewatching before finishing Breaking Bad or Arrested Development? Step your game up son.
White Collar - The chemistry between Bomer and the other guy is gold Acceptable
Modern Family - Re-watching just for Phil.Again, a rewatch before Breaking Bad? CMON SON.

What do i need to watch?!
Also watch Parks and Rec, but first finish Breaking Bad like a god damn gentleman. And then watch Parks and Rec. And then Arrested Development. The rest can wait.

Mad Men is on Netflix?! But that's cool anyway, there's one episode a day on TV over here so i'm recording that a re-watching all of it.

I was considering Prison Break. I'll definitely watch the first episode and see what it's like.

I'm just going with things on Netflix. My laptop is broken, so i'm watching on my xbox.

I like the rotation! I'm off college and i'm not doing anything atm, so i can watch an episode a day of each thing in the rotation. Going crazy with breaking bad would mean a lot of episodes a day and it would probably become a chore. Comedies and Mad Men are the only things I can just watch all day without stopping.

I found out my sister has Hulu Plus... I want to freeload... what are some good shows on there? Honestly... I haven't seen anything interesting. I just watched Parks and Rec season 5 but they don't have any other seasons... pretty wack.

Hulu is really only good for keeping up with current shows, they don't have older episodes of most things I care about. I use it for currently-airing shows and Netflix for catching up on older episodes of stuff.

What kill said, though Hulu Plus does have every episode of Community, and the early seasons are well worth the watch.

We should see an episode or two before we crown it the heir apparent to Breaking Bad. They haven't done many bad shows, but they've done a few.

Dexter is hilariously bad this season. At least Yvonne is back.

"Low Winter Sun" really needs to break AMC's streak of mediocrity.

Mad Men
Breaking Bad
Rubicon --- Very promising, but sadly canceled after 1 season
The Walking Dead
The Killing --- Awful first/second seasons, quality third season, probably end of the line now
Hell on Wheels --- Inexplicably entering its third season without anyone noticing
Low Winter Sun --- ????

The two new shows they recently green lit don't seem all that intriguing and aren't exactly created by TV geniuses.

Hell on Wheels --- Inexplicably entering its third season without anyone noticing
Low Winter Sun --- ????

The two new shows they recently green lit don't seem all that intriguing and aren't exactly created by TV geniuses.
I was sad when Rubicon was canceled too. Low rated but high quality. A lot better than The Walking Dead as far as quality goes, that's for sure. I couldn't even watch The Killings second season.. the first pissed me off way too much.

That network is Breaking Bad and Mad Men, and I'd love it if Low Winter Sun joined them, I'm just tempering expectations.

Rubicon had issues in its first 4-5 episodes that ultimately led to the dismissal of the original showrunner. The first season was uneven, but quickly figured things out and was headed to a very interesting place over the second half of it. In terms of subject matter, I think the show was actually ahead of its time, dealing with surveillance, political analysts for a think-tank and national security intelligence gathering.

Personally, I think AMC made a mistake in not renewing the show. In hindsight, I bet the network wishes it had given it a second season because The Killing and Hell on Wheels, which followed, were not worthy of second seasons at all. The network only continued them in an effort to not look as if it couldn't create a sustainable show. Wouldn't look so great to cancel multiple shows in a short period of time. It's too bad.
