    I've been binge watching Netflix TV Series for a few years now and it's really changed my viewing habits.
    Does anyone else find it hard to stop at just one episode?


    This weekend has been a reno weekend.
    Watched 25 episodes of Rehab Addict & (so far) another 7 eps of Cousins On Call (more reno).

    Think I need to get a life ;)

    I originally got it for the kids shows and then realised it was pretty cool. Watching some suits tv series recently. Good value but I'm disappointed it doesn't have a lot more older movies but anyhow still good.

    I've had the U.S. version for a while - between the kids and myself it gets a lot of use.

    I like the ESPN 30 for 30 docos and Anthony Bourdain's travel shows

    I have 6 months free Netflix with our phone plan but they didn't tell us that it would chew through our phone data. Now our phone bill is through the roof.

    I have been watching a few movies about the fighting in Afghanistan and catching of bin Ladin

    We hardly watch "free to air" telly these days.
    There seems to be very little that appeals these days (except the footy) - can't stand most of the reality shows - they've been done to death, so Netflix has become our new (ish) friend in the lounge room.

    We've discovered a lot of shows that we could never access (always thought Foxtel was overpriced ) but I must admit they still don't have everything. Still need regular visits to those other (dodgy) streaming sites to keep up with shows like Wayward Pines.

    Just confirmed today that I get Netflix quota free - and I'm on a fibre connection. Fun times!

    Can anyone recommend any good series television? What about docos that are gems?

    Watched British miniseries "Run" over the weekend. Pretty bleak portrayal of life in London but definitely worth a watch.

    I have US Netflix since late last year. I have bought a number of Optus prepaid phones recently for $14.95 which gives 3 months free Netflix for each phone activated.

    So my Netflix account has almost 3 years worth of credit on it.

    I have been watching House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Breaking Bad, Unbreakable Kimmy Schimdt, Daredevil, and now The Good Wife season 3 ..... I also just finished watching The Expendables 3.

    My 2 year old is watching Peppa Pig on Netflix. He has his own profile setup. Later he will probably start watching all the other cartoons.

    There is just way too many things to watch at Netflix. I hardly watch free-to-air these days.

    Yes The House of Cards is a great starting point. Just do what I do, I watch Netflix on TV and surf the net and post in PropertyChat on my laptop at the same time.

    I've started with Orphan Black - a colleague recommended it a while back. Into episode #3. Great series!

    I didn't like Orphan Black. It started OK bu just got stranger.

    But I'm not a sci-fi fan.

    I'm currently binging on Lilyhammer. It's actually really good: NY Mobster goes to a random town in Norway as he's in witness protection. Lots of situational comedy as he tries to navigate the Scandinavian welfare state as a newly arrived immigrant who everyone thinks is an arab.

    Later he starts his own organised crime empire.
