    I have some time this week to binge watch
    I am looking for something that is only a few seasons old so I can see it all.

    I don't watch a lot of TV, but saw all of SoA, Breaking Bad, OITNB & Donovan

    Preferably something not too overly-dramatic
    I tried True Detective, but bailed (it was good but did not hold my interest)

    Any suggestions?

    I'm currently binge watching Star Trek-The Next Generation. But this is the first time I've ever watched it.
    Only one more season to go and on to Deep Space Nine. :cheer2:

    But I also binge watched all 40 episodes of Forensic Files on Netflix in two weekends.

    All good suggestions, but none held my interest (although great)
    I auditioned for season 1 of Justified in my acting days
    GoT is not my type of show & Boardwalk is amazing, but I zone out with period pieces (I know I am a tool like that).

    Donovan is more my type (SoA too)

    Wentworth is only 2 seasons long...women's prison in Australia. Similar to Orange is the New Black but darker.
    Transparent was great and I watched the entire season in a day!

    Wasn't there a thread on exactly this topic last week?

    Obligatory House of Cards mention -- only the first season though. It goes downhill pretty quickly after S2 premier.

    If there was I apologize, I don't watch a lot of TV so most likely avoided it.
    My week changed & I have 4 days free but can't go anywhere so .........

    HoC is a good choice

    These are not the droids you're looking for.
