Any Tv Seasons Worth Watching?

Recommended Posts

My old TV favourites Lost and 24 are finished now. There's always Dragons Den and The Apprentice, but they're so short lived.

Any recommendations for something to watch? I need a lot of episodes and it must be suitable for the wife also ;)

The West Wing

Get the box set and start at series 1, episode.... about 20 hours later you'll have watched the best intelligent drama that's ever been created, and you'll realise you should have been at work hours ago.

Seriously though, series 1&2 are sheer brilliance, 3's ok as is 4 (it dipped for 5) 6 was watchable again, and 7 rounded off as a stormer.

You won't regret it: http://www.amazon.co.uk/West-Wing-Complete-Season-DVD/dp/B000068OVR/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1287615213&sr=8-1

Got the wife into it, and she's not fussed about politics at all, but was utterly gripped and screamed at me to get series 2 due to the cliffhanger ending of s1 (though to be fair, the ending of series 2 was even better).

The Sopranos.

'V' is just starting on Channel one. [Obviously will not have the same scary effect on me as the original did. Mainly I watch Films.]

Yes Prime Minister [Free on youtube]

[interesting that no-one has mentioned any British or Aussie Soaps.......]

Mad Men is fantastic.

Spartacus Blood and Sand was a great series.

Arrested Development, 30 Rock and Modern Family are all very funny.

Just started watching Boardwalk Empire which is supposed to be excellent.

Can't believe not one of you has mentioned Breaking Bad.

make that your No.1 priority honestly, and that's coming from someone who's seen every episode of The Wire three times and Lost twice.

+1 for Breaking Bad

I have started watching House recently and I really like that, it took a few episodes to get over Hugh Laurie speaking in an American accent

mind you.

Worth mentioning twice.

and again - The Wire was awesome

Prison break was ok but got progressively more ridiculous as the series went on

There are a number of Serial Drama's [Cult classic's] that occasionally get remade into hollywood movies.

Worth watching the originals.

There are a few on the tip of my tongue.

Like Edge Of Darkness. 1985. BBC [Mel Gibson did the remake in 2010]

State of Play
