Unspectacular but familiar and pleasant
1. Wet Hot American Summer
2. With Bob and David

Meh
3. Orange is the New Black (dropped it ½ way through season 2)
4. House of Cards (dropped it ¾ way through season 2)
5. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (watched ½ of season 1)
6. Narcos (watched a couple epis)

On my radar
BoJack Horseman

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

Yeah, I wasn't expecting that to be so good either. Marvel is really doing an outstanding job with its Netflix series - I will not mention Agents.

1. Bojack Horseman
2. Jessica Jones
3. Daredevil
4. House Of Cards
5. OITNB
6. Sense8


These are all great, as is the stand-up specials: Mulaney, Mirman, Jeselnik, Braugner. All top-notch. Especially the Mulaney.

This is true. I still need to watch Sense8 and last season of OITNB though.

I loved Jessica Jones when it came out. It blew me away. I didn't expect much from Marvel, but after the first episode thinking there was going to be a happy ending, I couldn't stop watching. I mean, I have watched Daredevil before Jessie came along, and I saw it as a good step towards grittism, but I wasn't expecting Marvel to tackle a show that's filled with the gritty noir style you've seen in Sin City and similar shows. The atmosphere and cinematography was just beautiful that I was thoroughly impressed.

Daredevil Season 2 is also premiering two days from now, and I can't wait for that one too. The first season was so satisfying with Vincent D'Onofrio's performance. I was a little on the fence about a superhero death match taking the spotlight in season 2, but after consideration, I felt it's good character growth for Murdock. Hopefully, this could be the step towards the infamous Frank Miller story, "Born Again" that Netflix needed.

I hadn't watched enough to vote before, but I just voted for Bojack Horseman. That show just struck my sense of humor just right, I don't think I've liked a comedy so much since early Curb Your Enthusiasm episodes.

Watched Luke Cage recently, over about 3 months. Daredevil and Jessica Jones both got kind of tiresome for me and I thought this would go the same way after a few episodes...I liked it better from about the midpoint on though.

This is a really tough list to keep up with.  Probably my last update.  After this, we'll have to narrow it down.  Heck, I've already narrowed it down by not including the kids' fare or reality shows.  So next poll will have to be comedy series or drama series or something.
