    Just about everyone seems to have at least one video streaming service now. We have Netflix and Amazon Prime and we have a Roku on our two flatscreens as an example. I find myself constantly looking for engaging TV series to stream, as I like to watch them while I exercise at home, and often find them to be from countries other than the US. I thought a thread devoted to streaming interesting series would be cool. Name the series, a brief synopsis, and what service you found it on. All I want is free stuff as I'm cheap.

    A couple recent ones for me are:

    1) Rake. Set in current time Sydney Australia and tells the story about a brilliant yet degenerate criminal law attorney.
    2) Hotel Babylon. Set in current time London it's set in an unltra-lux hotel and tells the story of staff and guests.
    3) Hell on Wheels. Set in post-civil war US tells the story of a small frontier town and building of the railway.

    There was a scene in one of the first few Hotel Babylon eps where sexy woman rubs her foot on a guys leg. All I could think was, "Man, he's got some nice shoes."

    :(

    Lilyhammer starring Steven Van Zandt is an excellent show and the way he carries himself off in his mob attire amongst some rather boringly dressed people is hilarious to say the least give it a blast you will not be dissapointed.

    First Breaking Bad and House of Cards, but assuming you have seen those, I just finished:

    Damages - Glenn Close as an icy cold NYC attorney
    Peep Show - British comedy series about two roommates and their friend Super Hans.

    Both on Netflix.

    Been binging on Sons of Anarchy on Amazon lately.

    Watched all of the first season of Brooklyn 99 on Hulu and the existing season 2 episodes. Hilarious.

    Heard good things about Hell on Wheels and Damages, I plan on checking them out.

    Solid thread, Piob, this will lead me to much vegetation at home during the evening hours.

    Hell on Wheels has its moments but it is surprisingly character driven so can move a little slowly at times.

    Cool.

    Anyone watching American Horror Story? I'm afraid to watch it.

    Scorpion is not a good show. Katherine McPhee's ass, however, is spectacular.
