I'm guessing everyone here will take an instant dislike...
Not at all. In fact, I am envious that you are going to embark on an adventure with fresh eyes.
Before you go out and spend your hard earned money, I wholeheartedly agree that Netflix would be the best idea to start with your experience. Go through all the shows - I do recommend in order of series - and then make yourself an informed decision. Be patient, and know that there are some clunkers in there as well as magnificent gems.
Above all, have fun. I am envious.
