Looking for something new to watch. I've seen all the old favourites like 24, sopranos, lost etc just finished Fringe and currently up to date with Game of Thrones, the following and the blacklist.

 

Anyone recommend something else? (Tried breaking bad but got to episode 5 and gave up!)

Someone recommended this to me on Monday. Currently now on episode 20 of the first series.

 

Some of the acting is a bit wooden, but it's still a great watch.

Another for the wire.

 

Did seasons 1-3 and only just picked up season 4 after 6 months or so. Stupid move.

 

Season 5 seems a bit slow much like the first.

I quite liked revolution.

 

I watch this too, but to be honest I don't know if I would advise anyone else to watch it. I only watch it as I want to see how it ends and hope it ends at season 2. One of these programmes that started ok, got bad but you need to know how it ends!!

 

I would agree with others on house of cards (especially season 1, 2 starts well then becomes OTT), person of interest & True detective.

 

Ones to avoid are hostages and the following, which started great but now watching season 2 I am desperate for it to end.

Started Suits today its ok not fantastic.

The pilot for Bosch on Amazon prime was good has Marlo from the wire and Titus Welliver in it.
