I'm bored, bored, bored and am looking for suggestions to get me through all the down time for total knee replacement.  On day 9 and am off enough painkillers to concentrate on tv -- any good tv series on netflix or amazon prime that I may have missed the first time around?

Breaking Bad or Walking Dead.

Arrested Development is good but I don't know how much is available on Netflix.

If you a nerd, like I am, all the Star Trek series are on prime.
I may not lock my doors while sitting at a red light and a black man is near, but I sure as hell grab on tight to my wallet when any democrats are close by.

They are on Netflix as well, but TOS is the "remastered" one where they re-did a lot of the special effects.

It's just not the same.

Breaking Bad is a good idea!  I'm a huge Walking Dead fan already!  Thanks...I'm going to load it up now.  As to the various Star Trek series...lol...BIG fan too.  One day I'll post a picture of my TNG hoodie complete with engineering communicator badge.  (The husband has command.)  Thanks, all!  I'd reply individually but I'm struggling with this.  Again, thanks all!

I like the second half of Voyager (probably when Seven of Nine showed up and they got rid of Neelix).

The Wire is another good one (a little overtly liberal, but still good).  We got the "Leverage" series for Christmas, and have been quite entertained thus far.  I never saw it when it was on the air, but it always intrigued me.  Timothy Hutton stars and does a very nice job.

I've been busy lol. Actually I didn't care much for vger when it was on, now that I'm staying at home with the baby I've been watching all the series, just finished deep space nine and started vger. It always seems the first couple of seasons are kind of lame and only got better once the ratings started to slip.

I never did watch DS9.  I couldn't get into it.

Enterprise was my favorite too.  Too bad more people didn't agree.

Both worth a second watch for sure.  Did you watch DollHouse?  I really liked that and hated to see it cancelled.

Deadwood and Justified are available at Amazon.  Both star one of my favorites, Tim Olyphant.   :yahoo:

I really enjoyed Deadwood, as it seems like it was probably as gritty as Deadwood must have really been in the beginning.  Some found the language too unbearable.  But I bet they probably did cuss that much.  Anyway, HBO just cut it off at the height of its popularity and it caused quite the uproar at the time.   

But I still recommend it if you can tolerate  :censored:
