The Emmys are over and the winners are in. The only question remaining is: Have you watched 2014′s essential TV yet? If not, don’t panic, we’ve got your back. Netflix does too. Luckily for the uninitiated, many of this years Emmy Award winning shows are available to stream via Netflix: Breaking Bad, Sherlock, Louie, Fargo and American Horror Story. Other winners included Modern Family, The Amazing Race, The Good Wife (all watchable via Hulu Plus), Veep and True Detective (which you can see on HBO Go). So this long weekend, sit down, loosen your belt, and bust out the popcorn because we’ve got your guide to catching up with the finest television on Netflix, including key episodes from seasons that shouldn’t be missed.
Breaking Bad cleaned up at The Emmys. On a night that most expected would belong to HBO’s True Detective, Breaking Bad solidified its place as one of the greatest TV series in history. With Bryan Cranston taking Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series and co-starts Anna Gunn and Aaron Paul winning for Outstanding Supporting Actress and Actor in a Drama Series respectively, the stars of the show were given their just due.
The show also won the Emmy for Outstanding Writing For A Drama Series, for the episode “Ozymandias” (season 5, episode 14) which was a critic and fan favorite. Widely regarded as one of the best episodes of television ever made, it’s well worth going back and watching again, or if you haven’t watched Breaking Bad, binge-watching your way there. (Netflix has all 5 seasons of the show on demand). We don’t want to give too much away but it’s breathtakingly suspenseful, beautifully shot, and gut wrenching in its character-driven plot, setting the scene for the series’ climactic ending.
