I've been taking a look for a thread like this, not to discuss shows at length but simply to post recommendations of new and/or old shows that aren't big enough to have their own thread. There's one from a few years back, but it was more about movies and shows in general, not exactly to recommend new shows. Let's start with the two I consider the best European shows right now: Gomorrah. Depicts the life in Naples as part of one of the Camorra clans. Tries to be as real as possible, and, at times, it can be quite hard to endure. Not for the faint of heart. Then again, if you are a fan of The Wire, you're going to love this one. Fours seasons already, consistently great. Dark. German series that's perfect for lovers of sci-fi and dense, thoughtful and complex plots. Two seasons already with a final third on the way to close the story. Dark is definitely on Netflix and I think Gomorrah is also available on Netflix in the USA. None of them are particularly obscure, so you might have heard about them already, or even watched both. But definitely great shows and well worth your time. If you like this kind of thread, I can add some new shows from time to time. We're in the middle of a golden age for TV shows, and sometimes it's hard to separate the great from the merely good. I'll try to post a well-known comparison for any show I post just to help everybody have a clear idea of the kind of show it is, but it won't always be possible.
