Binge show/series ideas - baseline info inside
So, I know I am late to the binge watching party, but we are finding regular TV to be less and less appealing on a lot of nights, and are spending more time looking at stuff to binge watch instead.

Here is what we have done so far:
Downton Abbey
Chernobyl
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Justified

We liked them all, Justified the most for the dialogue, and the fact that I am from Eastern Kentucky (not that far east ), but still, know all the cities mentioned, etc, so that was cool.
Chernobyl was amazing. Downton Abbey was great too, wasn't expecting to like it that much. Just finished season 3 of Mrs. Maisel, and it's been good too.

We have the following:
Hulu+Live TV
Prime
HBO Max (with our ATT Fiber)
Disney+

My wife wants to watch "The Crown", so I guess I will be getting a Netflix sub soon.

Those are what we have seen so far. Not looking for blood and gore. Like drama, but also comedy. I sort of enjoy turning my brain off and laughing.

Anyway, any advice?

My wife loved the Crown. She watched that one by herself. But i've had guy friends who enjoyed it as well.

Hulu: 11/22/63
Prime: You have already saw Mrs Maisel which is the only one I would recommend
HBO Max: Game of Thrones, Sopranos, The Wire, Eastbound and Down, Six Feet Under, Deadwood
Disney+: Mandalorian, The new Mighty Ducks, Loki

Even though you do not have Apple+ I would strongly recommend Ted Lasso. It's worth the fee

A couple of dark comedies that are pretty good

Barry - HBO
Mr. Inbetween - Hulu

Bosch - Amazon Prime, good cop thriller

Watch Seasons 1 and 2 of Fargo.

Season 1 picks up where the briefcase full of money buried in the snow from the movie is found.

Ah, I didn't realize that was a continuation of the movie.

Longmire, it was on Netflix. It’s about a modern day sheriff in the west, WY I think.

I liked The Crown.

There are many British crime dramas but they may be more intense than what you’re looking for.

The Great with Elle Fanning.

Longmire
Hell on Wheels
The Wire
Deadwood

Since you already seen the greatest show ever, Justified, try these other shows.

Justified was fantastic. Crown is great if you like history and the monarchy.

If you liked Justified you'll probably like Bosch on Amazon.

Deadwood (since you liked Justified and TO)
The Wire
Sopranos
1st season of Westworld
1st season of True Detective
True Blood if you like soft core porn
Silicon Valley if you like nerd humor
Barry if you like black comedy

If you haven't watched "The Wire" on HBO Max, just start there...

Depending upon your sense of humor, I would suggest Letterkenny on Hulu.

It’s Canadian humor and raucous and raunchy. There are currently 9 seasons available to binge watch, and the 10th season will be coming.

“After Life” on Netflix is a gem by Ricky Gervais.

You wont regret it. The Crown is really good.

Ted Lasso on AppleTV is awesome.

Succession is another good one. Waitng on season 3 to drop next month.

Yellowstone is bad arse as well.

Wife and I just started watching Billions on Shotime and its pretty good as well.
