what should i watch?

starting with fuller house episode 1.
So glad I'm not the only one who did this.... I'll decide at the end of the month if I want to keep it. So far I've gotten through half of the Fuller House season, and I've watched 2 episodes of Unbreakable Kimmy Scmidt. During my free trial, I also want to get through Making a Murderer and Master of None.

With the exception of Fuller House, all of those shows are excellent.

I actually watched the first episode of Fuller House over the weekend. Given how poorly it's being reviewed all over the internet, it was not as horrible as I expected (when compares it to the saccharin/cheese of the original series, that is).

I'm hoping the series got all of the really really stupid Full House references (e.g. Joey still doing Bullwinkle and pulling out that stupid woodchuck) out of the way in episode 1 so they could pave the way for something new. I'm not sure I'll watch any more of it though.

The subsequent episodes of Fuller House are different than the pilot. There are a few references to the original series, but not nearly as many. It's more like just another sitcom revolving around the three ladies and the four kids. The other adults from the original series make a couple of cameos, but they are not in every episode. I actually laughed out loud at a few moments (especially in the episode where they have a dance-off in a nightclub and Macy Gray shows up).

I laughed at a few moments, but in general it's cringe worthy bad

Others have already mentioned a lot of good ones. Broadchurch is great.

If you rate some shows on Netflix it will help it build better recommendations for you. So see if you have the option to rate some stuff you've already seen, then it can help you out.
