Orange Is The New Black is pretty easily number 1... hesitated for number 2, ended up going with Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt just over Sense8 (it's a bit unfortunate that the latter peaked at episode 4-5). Daredevil, Bloodline, Master of None and Jessica Jones are all pretty good but with big flaws. House of Cards was decent at first and got gradually worse, I didn't like Grace and Frankie at all (except for June Diane Raphael) and haven't watched the others.

In general, and with the notable exception of OITNB, I'm noticing a trend of Netflix shows having trouble finishing their seasons. Maybe they should go for less episodes as a standard.

Looks like I should bite the bullet and watch Orange is the New Black.

Haven't seen a lot but I liked all of these, and in this order:

1. Bojack Horseman
2. Master of None
3. With Bob and David
4. Wet Hot American Summer

I watched a little of Orange Is The New Black while my wife was watching it. I liked it enough but didn't feel like pursueing it.

I was bored by the ten minutes of Grace and Frankie I watched, and I absolutely hated the episode of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt that I saw.

I don't get that excited for serial dramas.

Do you think the latest seasons of House of Cards are as good as the first one was ?

I felt like the third season had more variety to it, but ultimately Frank and Claire trying to gain power is more interesting than the two already being in power.

Still I look at House of Cards similarly to how I look at Game of Thrones where the quality of each and every episode is outstanding (to varying degrees). It has some of the best writing, directing and acting in comparison to most of what's on television (especially when held up against network TV). I'm very happy Netflix has chosen to pursue the kind of storytelling you see on cable like with HBO, Showtime, FX and AMC.

Been watching Jessica Jones this week.  I'm very impressed.  Certainly will make it in my top 3
