Not sure why but I felt the third season was the weakest. All are suspects and then... Won't spoil it.

Currently enjoying a series called Dark Matter http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4159076/.
My first impressions were that it reminds me a little of both Firefly and Lost. Firefly in that spaceships are "rusty", they use guns/knives instead of fancy phasers.
It remind me of lost in that the story starts with a group of people who wake from stasis on board a ship with no memory of their own names or how they got there. They must then work together to pilot this ship and to survive various threats.

As the series progresses there's many plot twists and reveals about their identities.

^ I like Dark Matter. It was created by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, who are also responsible for Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe, and recycles some actors from Atlantis. I agree it reminds me a little of Firefly. It has been renewed for a third season, so I hope that will eventually show up on Netflix with seasons one and two.

^ I've just started Series 2. I've not seen either of those 2 Stargate spin-offs, but now i know they are made by the same team who make Dark Matter I will search for them on Netflix. I do remember as a kid the original Stargate SG-1 and thought that was great. I should really download that to.

The first two seasons of Black Mirror were definitely better than what is now available via Netflix.

^^ I enjoyed both Stargate spinoff series -- I prefer Universe, but unfortunately it was canceled after two seasons.

Bloodline came to an end and the end of the story was somehow meh. You can see they canceled it. A pity.

I never tried to get into House of Cards and began watching it recently on Netflix and have to say that I really enjoy it so far. I am in the second season. Did not know it is actually another remake of an original British show.
