Thanks so much for the suggestions! I totally fell for Hart of Dixie when it first came out, so I am very curious to see how these other shows stack up.
I am so excited for Nashville. That cliffhanger last season was the worst and then they cancelled it.
I love a good TV Series!! I just finished off one and I’m totally on the hunt for a new show!! I’m off to check off Nashville AND Hart of Dixie!
I haven’t seen any of these. I do enjoy binge watching old shows, it’s my favorite way to watch them.
I loved Hart of Dixie and I am sad that it ended. I might have to check out these other shows when I need some binge watching.
Oh my goodness I’m so not with the TV times these days… I don’t know any of these shows! I’ll have to check a couple of these out, thanks for sharing : )
These are all great shows on Netflix I will have to watch for sure. Nashville is one that sounds very interesting and I will have to watch these first. I love Hart of Dixie and have watched every episode. It truly is a great show. Thanks for sharing the list.
I haven’t seen any of these shows. My daughter keeps telling me I should watch Hart of Dixie and Bunheads.
I loved all of these tv shows! Bun heads was awesome, it was such a well written show. I also loved PanAm, great story lines. The tv shows on now are just not as good!
I haven’t heard of this TV show. I will have to check it out and see if it is something that I would be interested in watching.
I really enjoyed watching Pan Am when it was still on TV. I’m so sad they cancelled it! I guess I just love that time period and learning about what life was like back then.
I’m always on the lookout for a great new show to check out on Netflix. PanAm looks like one I’d like to check out. Thanks
Both the hubs and I love watching TV series. I haven’t watched any of these. I think I will have to check Pan Am and Nashville.
I never watched any of the above. I will need to check them out since I love my series!
Watched a few episodes of Nashville and found some of it to be strangely compelling, though way outside what I usually like.
It makes me so sad to see that some of these were canceled since they were so good. Bunheads was awesome.
