If you grew up in the 80’s Cobra Kai is a must. 
 

Peaks Blinders is possibly my favorite series of all time.  On a side note...for Americans at least...watch with subtitles on.  Makes a world of difference

Zerozerozero is fantastic (prime). If we are talking GOAT shows: wire, breaking bad and saul, leftovers. Hoping succession stays good has GOAT potential. If you have any interest in harder sci fi Expanse will go down as the best unless they pull a GOT and blow the ending next season. The books are incredible too.

Band of Brothers is amazing. 

Absolutely (and I think I'm ready for a re-watch). 

But I enjoyed The Pacific as much (if not a bit more). It doesn't get near the recognition that Band of Brother does.

Based on a recommendation from Ken, years ago on here, I thoroughly enjoyed Rake.

The Wire might be best series of all time IMO.  But that’s an old show (I mean it’s got payphones and pagers for crying out loud lol).  

Assuming you’ve already watched Stranger Things and Chernobyl since those last aired before Covid, and looking for newer content, best newer series I’ve watched is Dark on Netflix.  It’s not brand new if you lived in Germany but it’s pretty new to Netflix.  It’s a great show, just bring a notepad to season 2 and 3 to take notes so you can keep track of everyone and their connections.  

Honorable mentions to Ozarks, Mandolorian (for Star Wars fans), Peaky Blinders (except season 4 sucked), and for quick easy watch Ted Lasso was surprisingly enjoyable.  Don’t sleep on Billions, Young Pope/New Pope, and season 1 of True Detective (skip the other seasons).

Multi series recommendation:

All on Netflix 

Daredevil

Iron Fist

The Defenders

All based on the Marvel universe for multiple seasons.

Each series is self contained but some of the characters appear in other series.

Very entertaining!

Sad they were all cancelled, I'm guessing as a result of Disney having Disney+ and Marvel.

I tried to force myself to watch cobra kai. The acting makes is so bad it pretty much unwatchable.
