I only see 8 seasons of Suits on Netflix. Where did you watch season 9? I'm onto season 3 for the time being.

I do not see it in Netflix either. Wonder where it could be.
I'm not being directly obtuse with you, just deliberately due to forum rules. Seek and you will find it floating in a bay.

First 3 reasons are great. Season 4 is a bit of a downer in comparison. Highly recommended overall if you like shows like Game of thrones etc. However, its hard to like the protagonist as his decisions mostly are baffling for his own good.
Rating - 4/5

Watching The Handmaid's tale on Prime. Tense dystopian drama. Slow, but holds you captive. A few holes in the story, but which show doesn't?

Guys, any suggestions for TV shows? I've always been more of a movies guy, but recently got hooked onto Narcos (and loved it). Have also enjoyed House of Cards & Mirzapur (these two were top class). Would love a streaming show on business, politics or crime. Had watched Breaking Bad, but didn't like it.

Sister recommends "Billions" and "Succession".

Thanks in advance!

Few quick recommendations, that I have liked

Family Man - Prime
House of Cards - Netflix
Suits - Both
Mentalist - Prime
Sacred Games (Season 1 was good, 2 was bad)
Narcos- Mexico - Not as good as Narcos, but watchable.
Pachayat- Prime-Not in the categories you mentioned, but a nice relaxing watch

I second billions. It's over the top a bit, but I am enjoying it immensely

Try Ozark on Netflix. Has all three elements you've mentioned to varying degrees.

In terms of gripping TV shows offering a cinematic experience the one that got it all started, as far as I'm concerned, was Lost (2004-2010).

I'm also hooked on to 'better call saul' but that's a spin-off from breaking bad so not sure it'll work for you.

The one India specific series on Netflix that I really liked was Jamtara. The fact that it was based on a true incident added to the appeal.

"The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" on Amazon Prime - Light comedy drama. Good for these troubled times.

"Westworld" on Disney Hotstar - Sci-fi, AI, Religion, Dystopia, Philosophy... Super stuff by the husband wife duo, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy.

Finished all 3 Seasons of Fauda. Pretty fast paced it is.

Watched it with original audio of Arabic/Hebrew only, tried switching to English but it just looses it feel with it.

In the second season now. Must say it's quite well made. I agree with the audio. Although it's Hebrew you can feel the punch which simply goes away when you shift to English.

If Crime and Drama are what you seek, look no further than Sopranos and Wire. Sure, they are old shows but unbelievably well-done shows with gripping stories and stickler for details. A quick look at their IMDB ratings alone will convince you to give these two shows a chance atleast.

Guys, anyone know where I can watch CSI Miami?
Though the premise was predictable, I loved Horatios character and the colourful visuals on the series.

Sopranos and The Wire are the best shows ever. But they are not very well suited for the generic audiences who want action packed episodes with twists and instant gratification. They are more like reading a book.

Both are amazing crime drama shows, and I would highly recommend them if one has patience, and is looking for a show with a deeper meaning (The Wire especially) and great character development.

On another note, I completed Better Call Saul recently.

I think it is as good if not better than Breaking Bad. It does not have as much liberty afforded to BB in terms of Gang fights, Explosions, Murder etc since the show is more about the origins of Saul, a relatively normal person. It still does such a great job and feels right at home when compared to BB. Rhea Seehorn deserves an Emmy for her performance this season.

Also finished the German TV show, Dark. My new favourite. The show is about people going missing in a small German town. There is whole lot more to the show. But don't want to reveal any spoilers. Fans of Twin Peaks and Stranger Things will really like the it.

'Billions' is good. If the term 'business' encompasses advertising world, I would recommend 'Mad Men'. Its kinda retro show which depicts the happenings in an ad agency at 'Madison Avenue' in NYC.
