The Olympics will end today. After that, good shows to watch on TV will be “slim-pickins” until the networks roll out their new shows and old favorites for the Fall season. To fill in the gap, here are the 5 best shows to watch on Netflix (in my opinion).

Narcos is the story DEA agents who are pursuing notorious drug Kingpin Pablo Escobar (Wagner Moura) in 1970’s & 80’s Columbia. Cocaine has become the drug of choice in the US and no matter what DEA Agents Murphy (Boyd Holbrook) & Pena (Pedro Pascal) do, Escobar’s empire keeps growing. Another great period piece with well-developed characters and addicting storyline.
Bloodline is a family drama starring hunky Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights) as Det. John Rayburn. Rayburn is one of four siblings in a prominent family in this small Florida Keys town. Things are going along just fine until his black sheep brother, played by Ben Mendelsohn comes back, dredging up hidden family secrets and wreaking havoc in the lives of the Rayburn siblings. Also starring Cissy Spacek and Sam Shepard as the matriarch and patriarch of this dysfunctional family.Bloodline - Family Drama starting hunky Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights).

Flaked is a quirky dramedy starring Will Arnett (Arrested Development) set it Venice, California. It’s the story of Chip, a recovering alcoholic, and his friends in this surfer-type town who wrestle with their pasts, romantic triangles, and recovery. I found this series both funny and endearing.
Fundamentals of Caring
Fundamentals of Caring is a movie, not a series starring Paul Rudd as Ben. After a series of losses, Ben takes the job as a caregiver to 18-year-old Trevor who is confined to a wheelchair with Muscular Dystrophy. To broaden Trevor’s horizons, Ben takes him on a road trip, where they both grow, wrestle with their painful pasts and come home with a new sense of bravery and purpose.
