Might have suggested Lost In Space, might not have.
Good one.
Stranger Things I'm sure was mentioned. Crazy good.
Longmire.
30 Rock.
Schitt's Creek
.
And an old one: Columbo. Each episode is like a movie mystery.
Too many pages to go through to see if these have been mentioned.

Just finished watching season 1 of Messiah. It really got going towards the end, so why did Netflix pull it.
Also on Netflix, Perdida is well worth a look in.
No. I'm not going to watch reruns of Last of the Summer Wine, CC.

A bit of a second hand referral. My wife watched a series whilst I was at work for a few nights called Vigil on BBC One and said that it is something I would like. Appears to be about a death in a British navy nuclear submarine and the police, security services and navy involved in cover up. Does sound interesting, but will see.
Its ok but getting more and more far fetched as the episodes go on. I'm kind of half watching it.

Love Longmire, pacing is great. I spent some time on Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota and it always reminds me of my time there.

Columbo is one of my favourite series ever. The production values from the ones in the 60's & 70's are amazing. There's even one directed by Stephen Spielberg.

Yeah Columbo always had a big following in the UK, David. 30 Rock had some great lines, Tina Fey is very talented. One I going to recommend, but unfortunately doesn't seem to be easily available now in the UK, from what I can make, is the excellent Western series Hell On Wheels.

Only saw Columbo about five years ago and I was blown away.
If I can't find Hell On Wheels here, it would be a miracle; we are completely oversaturated with streaming channels.
*First streaming channel I checked, I found it. I saw it for free. It's now $3/episode in one place. Good one. Miles Edward O'Brien of DS9 does a good job as the villain--believable.
