What is your favorite Netflix original scripted series?

Decided to put this into TV Talk since this is where it would get the most traction.

For this, I'm only considering continuing Netflix original scripted shows that are still in production. Not documentaries like Making a Murderer or their comedy specials.

There's a bunch. So hopefully I'll get them all in the poll. With Netflix being a binge watch service, I'm aware that many of you are probably not up to date with a lot of these series.

The only ones that I've finished are Daredevil and Longmire and I like them both. Not done with Jessica Jones yet. House of Cards is Netflix's prestige show, but I've only seen the 1st season to completion.

I've only seen a few episodes of Sense8.

Re: What is your favorite Netflix original scripted series?

I voted Jessica Jones. I've watched everything on that list except for Bloodline, Grace and Frankie, and Between. The only shows I didn't care for were House of Cards, which I gave up on after the 2nd season (and then went and immediately rewatched The West Wing), and Kimmy Schmidt, which I quit after episode 8 or 9 after not laughing a single time. I wasn't in love with Daredevil, I just kind of liked it, and I didn't have high hopes for Jessica Jones, but I really, really thought it was fantastic. Orange is the New Black is potato chip entertainment. Daredevil is fine. Longmire was fine. Narcos was good. Sense8 was ridiculously bizarre but pretty entertaining. Marco Polo was mindless fun.

Mines a toss up between Jessica Jones and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Re: What is your favorite Netflix original scripted series?

There really is a surprising amount of Netflix Originals. Some are pretty bad but I read an interview with NF management who said they don't really care - every original show or movie, even the really bad ones, has its fans, and they're not as beholden to 'ratings' thinking as networks are. It's an interesting time for TV.

Kimmy Schmidt, with OITNB as a close second. I think I'd like to try Jessica Jones, and I watched a couple eps of Sense8 but it didn't really engage me.

I've seen Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Sense8, Orange is the New Black, and just started watching House of Cards. Daredevil is my favorite.

Re: What is your favorite Netflix original scripted series?

If I had only watched the first (and maybe the second) season of House of Cards, I'd have voted for that.

Re: What is your favorite Netflix original scripted series?

Loved Daredevil, it's the only original Netflix show I've watched to completion...that being said, it's also the only one I've tried so far. Interested in checking out Jessica Jones, Marco Polo, Sense8, Orange is the New Black, and Narcos.

Just not enough time in the day.

It was tossup between Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Both are great I pick Daredevil cause I love the fight scenes.

I'd probably pick Bojack Horseman, but it's not an option.

Master of None and Bojack Horseman are better shows then 90% of the one's you put on there.

Too many good ones to narrow it down.

Re: What is your favorite Netflix original scripted series?

Does Longmire really count considering it started on A&E?

I've only seen a few episodes of OITNB, which was OK. I think I'd enjoy House of Cards, Daredevil, and Jessica Jones more.

Re: What is your favorite Netflix original scripted series?

Of the ones I've watched, which is not many, it's definitely Daredevil. I thought House of Cards started out really compelling and then went way off the rails by the end of the second season...I never bothered with season 3. Just a few episodes into Jessica Jones and so far it's pretty solid.

I don't have Netflix but I'm surprised no one here has seen Bloodline as supposedly that is a great show.

Narcos was fantastic with Daredevil a close second. House of Cards would be up there if I had only seen the first season.

Re: What is your favorite Netflix original scripted series?

I've only seen Marco Polo out of these and I liked it pretty well.

I own the first 2 Seasons of Longmire & House of Cards and will watch them at some point.

I'll definitely buy/watch some of the others once they're released on discs.

Re: What is your favorite Netflix original scripted series?

Though I love Jessica Jones, Daredevil (I'm looking forward to season 2 more than any other project on Marvel's slate, including Civil War), and W/ Bob & David, I had to go with Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Out of all of the TV, movies, books, and records that came out last year, it was my absolute favorite piece of media. I went through the entire series twice and will still put on a random episode from time to time.

I just voted Bloodline because I loved it. Binged it in two days then rewatched it all again with my wife a few days later because I knew she would love it and she did. This poll should probably be a checklist with a favorite top 3 or something because I really like Narcos and Orange is the new black as well. It was tough but Bloodline affected me the most.

Bloodline is an incredibly difficult show to "get into" imo.

Re: What is your favorite Netflix original scripted series?

I think House Of Cards is still the best overall. But I think the best writing definitely has to goto Sense8 (its not even close) and Unbreakable is far & away the most "enjoyable" for me to watch.
