  1. my husband and i have recently gotten addicted to breaking bad. kinda dark, but there's at least 3 seasons of 12 or so episodes on Netflix...so you'd have plenty of watching there... our choice before that was burn notice.

  2. Have you watched Doc Martin yet? It's available streaming. I love it. Kathie L in Allentown

  3. I love the fabrics you're using on your paper piecing. Beautiful. I'm doing some paper-pieced stars as well, but not with the cute center. Love that. I love Drop Dead Diva if you haven't seen it...there are two seasons on Netflicks. Enjoy!

  4. +1 to breaking bad.

    Don't know what kind of shows you usually like, but Battlestar Galactica (the new one, not the one from the 70s) is my favorite show ever and is on Netflix.

    Firefly is another good show.

    Or is you want more of a comedy, Raising Hope is hilarious, especially for those with kids I think.

  5. I have a ton of hand sewing, too! :p You could try Tin Man: it's loosely based on the Wizard of Oz and is sooo good, though it is only a 3 episode show.

  6. Have you watched Weeds? I think you'd like that.

  7. Midsomer, Frost, Murdock. Dr. Who.

    You can tell I like Brit TV.

  8. I love the modern day Sherlock Holmes (sadly, only 3 episodes, I think), featuring the guy from the British 'Office' as Watson. It's great! Your pp blue star is so pretty.

  9. If you liked Alias you'll love MI-5. It's a British show about spies, but it's a lot more realistic than Alias. Another great one from the BBC is Sherlock. Benedict Cumberbatch is in it. His face is so... I don't know. I can't decide if he's ugly or pretty. There's only 3 episodes, but they're long. Not sure if it's on Netflix, though.

  10. fun stuff! we only have netflix at our house, it's not on instant queue, but six feet under is one of my favorite series of all time.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I like to stick with comedies when I'm working or else I get too drawn into the show and completely forget to work haha.

  12. I would try Kingdom over Doc Martin, but I would go for Gilmore Girls. But what's really good TV "watching" is QI, it's on youtube, and it's good TV for entertainment, learning something quite interesting. But it's really good because you don't have to always be actually watching the telly to know what's happening. Good luck with the handiwork!

  13. Friday night lights is the best show I've seen on Netflix. After watching the whole series, I'm bummed it was cancelled so soon. It's a great program, great writing, great actors.

    ReplyDelete
  14. You absolutely have to watch Downton Abbey. Season 1 is on Netflix and Season 2 is on PBS.org and on tv now!

    ReplyDelete
  15. man vs. food and cake boss. so fun! and of course downton abbey.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm going to second Weeds ... first five seasons are available streaming... they're great! Happy hand sewing!

    ReplyDelete
  17. sons of anarchy - season 1-3 are on instant streaming -- its an intense show for sure, but I'm addicted :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. You should give How I Met Your Mother a try. Terence are over 130 episodes and it's such a funny witty well written show.
    P.S. My husband is an operations mgr. at Netflix so it makes me happy to see all of you enjoying it :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. oooooh.... I really like White Collar! 3 seasons on Netflix or if you like sic-fi- 2 seasons of Warehouse 13. Both good! I hear Downtown Abbey is good and I've seen some comments here. I want to watch Burn Notice next.

    ReplyDelete
  20. House of Eliott...British and we got it from netflix. Sadly ends abruptly, after a bunch of episodes, when the show was cancelled.

    ReplyDelete
  21. The hubs & I just blew through all the Breaking Bad seasons on there, we both loved it & that is not always the case with tv!
    If 'How I met your mother' is on there, watch it for sure. It's hilarious.
    Oh - we also got on the Arrested Development train, rather late. It was good too & now I keep finding references to it that I so would not have gotten before. haha
    We could not get into Dexter...didn't really give it a fair shake yet though I guess. Weeds will probably be the next one I check out.
    Oh- Bones. I like the show & had no idea there were so many season, I forget how many right now, but lots!
    wow. I may or may not watch too many shows on netflixs! Might have to start doing more handsewing to make it okay~

  22. I second the nod for Downton Abbey - it's wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hot in Cleveland or Big Band Theroy So funny!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Everyone I know is crazy for Downton Abbey but sadly for me Netflix Canada doesn't have it :-(

    ReplyDelete
  25. Those 3 Sherlock episodes are streaming at the Masterpiece Theater website until 2/28.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think you would enjoy the BBC version of "Being Human". I just finished watching all three seasons.

    ReplyDelete
  27. We're huge Monk and Psyche fans at our house give it a try! We used to watch Pushing Daisies but they took it off Netflix last I knew...
    Love the the star you're working on, the colors, the pattern, everything!
    Get stitchin' :-)

  28. Downton Abbey
    Just cause it is good

    ReplyDelete
  29. It's got to be Downton Abbey! I challenge you to watch it and not talk with a British accent when it's over! And the clothes, oh my gawd, the clothes!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Downton Abbey! If you're not watching, you must try it!

    ReplyDelete
  31. My and and I are absolutely addicted to Downton Abbey...a British royalty type of show, the abbey truly exists in real life and is simply gorgeous . The actors/actresses are very well chosen and there's great drama! You'll love it! Beautiful work...love the colors.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I must cast my votes with the other commenters who said Downton Abbey and Sherlock. Both are incredibly excellent. Some other good ones- Psych, Hot in Cleveland, Eureka (kind of like X Files but...not). I think the entirety of Monty Python's Flying Circus is also available for streaming, an oldie but goodie.

    Also: a very awesome combination of fabrics for the paper piecing!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have Netflix Canada, but I assume most programs are the same (probably more in the US). We've been watching The Hour - a Brit mini series which is really intriguing.

    We're also watching Lie to Me since we never watched it originally. I love me some Tim Roth.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Cake Boss, Hoarders, Bones, Hot in Cleveland... that combo covers just about any mood you might be in on any given day.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm going totally off here and saying Royal Pains. Also the BBC version of Being Human is on Netflix, I haven't seen it but watch the American version which is on season 2 right now. Also The Tudors was fabulous and all of it is on instant download. If you want to 'listen' Mike Burbigula has an awesome comedy cd on iTunes for 9.99, it's called Come Sleepwalk with Me, super hilarious, I could listen to it over and over. Happy sewing.

  36. 30 Rock is usually my go to show while I'm quilting or sewing.

    ReplyDelete
  37. We watched X-files and Heros both start to finish this summer. It was fun. You can never go wrong with Mad Men. I also have Benny and June (sp?) and Heathers in the wait...

    ReplyDelete
  38. Love Shameless and The IT Crowd, both BBC on Netflix. Oh, and Sons of Anarchy

    ReplyDelete
  39. I hated history in high school, but I'm addicted to historical shows now. Two of my favorites are Tudors and Downton Abbey. On the darker side, Six Feet Under (about the funeral business) and Dexter (a do-gooder serial killer) are good too. These comments have given me some new ideas :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I just watched all 3 seasons of United States of Tara, and found it very interesting/entertaining. I also love a good british comedy like Keeping Up Appearances, and classic novel-made-movies like Lost In Austen, Bleak House, Jane Eyre, and Wuthering Heights!

    ReplyDelete
  41. What about Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman. Or Little House on the Prairie... old school but goodies! :D

    ReplyDelete
  42. Bones, the Mentalist, and Dexter! Glee is a bit high school drama, but I sew during the drama and watch the singing! These got me through the months I was stuck on the couch with a newborn too.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Medium! I watched all 7 seasons while quilting. I was sad when i watched them all. I also loved Gossip Girl! Ope, ya breaking bad was good too...just saw your first commenter. ya, Weeds is good as well. ( I'm scrollig your comments to see what other people are saying, hehe). Oh, I liked Vampire Diaries too. I'm running outta good shows to watch on netflix!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Two of my favs are Dexter and Weeds :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. If it were me, I'd say The Office. There are many seasons to watch, so you won't run out of episodes and it's just such a funny, great show!

    ReplyDelete
  46. *Lie to Me
    *Prison Break (I could not watch this but dh and ds liked it)
    *Robin Hood (a british show - a few season, funny and entertaining)
    *Fast Forward
    *Daybreak
    *Jericho
    and of course;
    *The Wonder Years (quite a few seasons - all good!)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Mad Men ( Don Draper is sex in a well tailored suit!), Peep Show (dry awkward british humor, my fav), United States of Tara. But seriously, you should watch Mad Men so we can talk about the hot men:)

    <3ale

    ReplyDelete
  48. Madmen, Downtown Abbey, American Horror Story, Mildred Pierce

    ReplyDelete
  49. Dexter,Weeds,White Collar,Downton Abbey-all great!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Love your hand piecing! Have you seen the star rose block party going on on flickr? More english paper piecing goodness.

    I don't have netflicks so I don't know what's on it, but since we're talking english paper piecing I'm going to suggest some english shows.

    *downton abbey is great, but what you really need to see is the spike ad for it that SNL did. too awesome.
    *2nd QI, the best quiz show ever
    *Mock the Week, hmm, definitely neck and neck with QI
    *Never Mind the Buzzcocks. the best music quiz show ever.
    *Good News. Russel Howard rocks!
    *The Fades. not comedy or quizzy, kind of a brit version of Buffy but even awesomer
    *The IT Crowd. Have you tried turning it off then on again? and they have a goth that lives in a closet.

    ok, this one isn't british, but this weekend's SNL was really worth seeing. I laughed so hard my sides hurt!

    ReplyDelete
  51. TRAILER PARK BOYS--------If you have never watched an episode, please, please please just watch one. I promise you will laugh. It is a Canadian show but it so flipin high-larious. It has bad language and a little bit of pot smokin but what trailer park dosent.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Friday Night Lights (best show ever, anywhere, anyplace) Mad Men, The Closer.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Mad Men, Nikita, Grey's Anatomy, Homeland, Project Runway...

    ReplyDelete
  54. If you're not shy and can move past a lot of blood, I recommend Spartacus. I'm sure it's too much for some but I really became interested in the story and the characters.

    Or you can watch documentaries on quantum physics. :D

    ReplyDelete
  55. Bleak House, North and South and There is a bbc show about a loch--can't remember the name but it was an amazing show...set in the 90's I think...about a family that lives at a large estate but can no longer afford it so has to be resourceful to keep it. Hope some of these ideas are fun for you...

    ReplyDelete
  56. My husband and I have started watching "Weeds",and now we are addicted to it. Good luck with the hand sewing.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'm surprised no one has said Leverage or Numbers both equally awesome! Numbers has 100 episodes and Leverage has 3 seasons so it would keep you going for a bit--highly recommend!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Friday Night Lights - best television ever made, without question. And although there is football in it, it is so NOT about football.

    ReplyDelete
  59. hahaha, i need some new netflix shows too, I'm so happy I found this post. I'm just finishing up with Friday Night Lights (must watch, if you haven't, 5 seasons all streaming)!

    ReplyDelete
  60. These are all old so you may have seen them already....however, I like most of them enough to watch them again:
    Earth Girls Are Easy
    Best in Show
    Six Feet Under (long-long series...you could be sewing for months with this one!)

    ReplyDelete
  61. love this week of patterns, think my fav is the winter one but love them all.I enjoyed looking at your take on pat sloan blocks too, Sandy G.
