1) Boardwalk Empire
This show took place in Atlantic City in the 20's. It was very well acted and produced. Not perfect, in fact, they killed off one character far too early that really damaged the show, but not badly enough to stop watching. Plus Michael Shannon got to lose his shit and kill a a few people, which is always fun.
Having heard good things about this Netflix drama and seeing all the awards they won, I decided to give it a shot and it's pretty good. I'll definitely watch season 2. I didn't realize Prince Phillip was such a dick. (Maybe he isn't, I'm too lazy to research the Monarchy to find out)
3) Mad Men
Here's my somewhat of a stretch. I tried to get into Mad Men but never found it to be very interesting, though I've probably seen at least 20 or so episodes of it. I think if I sat down and watched, I'd probably enjoy it more. It was very well acted and pretty to look at.
