A look at the man who created James Bond. This one is just plain, old-fashioned fun. Fleming is rated TV-MA.

An amusing Canadian mystery series set during the early 1900s. While some of the dialogue can be stilted at times, I really love the main character! It’s definitely fun seeing the various mysteries unfold.

#24: Jewel in the Crown (1984)


Another period drama still on my list to see, The Jewel in the Crown won a Golden Globe for Best Mini-Series and several Emmy Awards as well. This one does contain graphic content including a rape that is central to the story. It’s set in India at the end of British rule.

#25: Mad Men (2007)

When I first started Mad Men, I hated all the characters and couldn’t get into it. It’s seriously about a bunch of terrible people working at an advertising company. Somehow, however, I just couldn’t take my eyes away from Don Draper and all of his lies. Finally, I just had to keep watching. The highlight (for me anyway) of the series is the strange friendship between Don and Peggy. On a side note, there is definitely adult content in this, but most of the time Mad Men is rated TV-14.
