I love Dr. Who.

I'm on Episode 11 and I'm pretty much hooked.

I really do love the special effects. I'm sure the digital effects get better as the series progresses, but I'm the kind of guy the prefers the guy in the gorilla suit over subpar CGI.

So, do you guys have any other recommendations for TV shows on Netflix to watch? I'm caught up on The Office, Parks and Rec (hilarious, if you haven't seen this, watch it), Psych, and 24 (of course).

P.S. 283 watchers? Lots of bored people out there, huh?

    Nobody else said it...

    This pleases me. But it is Doctor Who, not Dr.

    I'd say definitely check out Mad Men and Life. I've also heard good things about Friday Night Lights and Weeds.

      friday night lights is pretty awesome if you totally ignore season 2. It never happened, like spiderman sequel movies never happened.

      Also, weeds was a GREAT concept and it was good for a couple seasons and then it shit the bed pretty royally. MAYBE worth checking out just for the novelty of it but def not worth sticking around for the long haul.

    Sherlock is tremendous. And so glad you like Doctor Who. You might want to check out Torchwood (BBC version) as well. Its amazing.

      They do indeed. Torchwood is a bit more for the older crowd, where Doctor Who is pretty much an all ages show.

      From what I've heard Dr Who and Torchwood go hand in hand.

    it's a short run so it shouldn't take you long and it's really very funny.

      Another one I've heard about, but wasn't sure what people thought of it. I'll put it on my queue as well.

    Sherlock, Like James said. Can't recommend it enough.

    Supernatural is a very good show. Agan, can't recommend it enough.

    Life on Mars. It's only two seasons, and it may be hard to find since it ended a few years ago, and it's from Britain.

    So I finally jumped on the Breaking Bad band wagon and I'm all caught up. Great show, really good stuff. Still think you'll love Castle and Burn Notice.

    And Supernatural, you will love it my friend!

    Oh shit, also. If you're getting into the BBC feel of Netflix, try Sherlock if you haven't already. I think the latest episodes are up. There's only six, but they're soooooo gooooooooooood.

      Sounds interesting. I'll have to give it a look-see.

      It's a full series, but each episode is about 90 minutes, and there's only six. Three episodes per season. Seasons 1 and 2 have aired but the 3rd doesn't start until summer 2013. Mostly because the two main actors, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, are busy with The Hobbit movies.

      Is it a Miniseries or are the episodes going up as they get released?

    Dexter, Black Books, Game Of Thrones, Scrubs, Metalocalypse.

      The first season is the best season for Metalocalypse, but I still recommend watching all the episodes, they still are funny.

      I'm on my second run of GoT... so freaking awesome. I've seen a shitton of Scrubs, but became uninterested in the later seasons. Metalocalypse was fun in 15 minute increments, but I have only seen one of the 30 min shows. Does it hold up well?
