Help Me Fill My Netflix Queue

By Ellery Adams

I know, I know. It's a blog about books and writers and I'm here soliciting recommendations for TV shows.

It's true. I admit it. Mr. Ellery and I like to plop down in front of the telly for an hour or two a night and get caught up in a show.

I'm not kidding when I say caught up. If we like a show, we watch all the episodes in rabid fashion, backing up the Netflix queue and hoping they're all available.

We've had a good year for TV and it seems like over the past 6 months, we've been introduced and torn through some amazing series. So far, our favorites have been Justified, Downton Abbey, Doc Martin, The Killing, Grimm, and Game of Thrones.

I'm sure the new Sherlock and Holmes will join the ranks of our top shows, but Masterpiece seems to release new episodes like they're limited edition Cabbage Patch Babies.


So help me out here, folks. Don't let my summer viewing by defined by campy sitcoms and reality shows. Give me a series, old or new, that will keep us entertained and talking for the next few weeks.

And if you haven't tried the ones I've listed, you should!
