Maybe we can help you out with that:

If you like hard-hitting documentaries that will make you think, then you should watch Making A Murderer.

Unless you've been holed up under a rock somewhere, you've probably heard about Netflix’s 10-part documentary series, Making A Murderer. The true life story told through archive footage, old interviews, and lots of courtroom sessions chronicles the story of Steven Avery, a man who was imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit, then exonerated for it, but wound up back in prison for another crime later on.

All ten episodes are available on Netflix.

If you like mafia-esque shows about real life people, you should definitely watch Narcos.

Narcos tells the tale of drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, and how he builds his billion dollar empire in Colombia. Although most of the show is in Spanish, save for a few English parts, the subtitles make it easy to follow, and the show will have you hooked from the start. Might even help you with your Breaking Bad withdrawal.

Speaking of Breaking Bad withdrawal, what better way to curb that than by revisiting one of the show's best characters? Check out Better Call Saul.

Via netflix.com

The show is a prequel to the AMC drama, and focuses on Saul Goodman and his life six years prior to his appearance on Breaking Bad. Apart from Bob Odenkirk reprising his role as Goodman, Jonathan Banks also returns as Mike Ehrmantraut.

The entire first season is available on Netflix.

If you like British sci-fi anthologies that would totally mess with your mind, you should give Black Mirror a try.

Black Mirror is an anthology series, with self-containing episodes, all of which are pretty dark and satirically mock modern society, with particular focus on the perils of technology. Each episode has different actors, settings, and sometimes different time periods and realities.

Two seasons and the Christmas special are available on Netflix.

If you like comic books, the Avengers and all things Marvel, you should check out Jessica Jones and Daredevil.

Jessica Jones made waves last year and was hailed as a feminist superhero show that everyone should watch. More gritty than Daredevil at times, the show focuses on the eponymous character as she deals with past assault, discovering other superhuman beings like herself, and being a detective in a world full of secrets.

The entire first season is available on Netflix.

If you're into situational comedies with quirky characters, you should check out Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Via netflix.com

The show features Kimmy, a 29-year-old, who is forced to adjust to life in New York after she is rescued from a doomsday cult after 15 years. The show is written by Tina Fey, and as always Fey's off-beat characters shine through, and provide hours of entertainment.

If you're a fan of whodunit murder-mystery shows, How To Get Away With Murder is the show for you.

If you like light, smartly-written comedies that tackle problems that are relatable AF, do yourself a favour and watch Master Of None.
