The Guardian gave it favourable reviews during the week - will keep an eye out for it.

I've been watching Warehouse 13 recently.

It's not very serious but easy watching that reminds me of x-files with the tone of Stargate.

Watched the first couple of trailer park boys - it was okay - maybe something I will need to stick with.

Yep, at its best the best series ever made IMO. Such a shame it never got finished properly, as I think had it gone down the road Milch had intended, it would have been widely considered as better than the likes of the Wire.

I still haven't got over the fact that Carnivale was cancelled. Absolutely gutting to the point where I kind of wish I hand't started watching it in the first place :lol:

Generation Kill (can't believe nobody has mentioned it)

 

The Returned- creepy French horror series being remade into an American version but if you're cool as **** you'll watch the French one.

 

True Detective is incredible TV.

 

Deadwood

 

House of Cards

Also The Americans was pretty solid. 2nd series is almost done but I've only seen the 1st. It's about 2 Russian spies and their undercover life in the US. Guy looks like David Duchovny and the girl looks like a tidy Russian.

Generation Kill (can't believe nobody has mentioned it)

 

To be fair, it's been mentioned a few times on ye numerous other threads like this over the years!

 

Since there is a console game sub-forum, could be worth having one for TV programmes.

Watching 2-3 a night! Decided not to watch Game of Thrones new series until I'm through it so I can watch several back to back.

 

I'll echo what others have said in that True Detective is one of the best things I've seen on telly. My favourite current programme is Hannibal.

The girlfriend's been watching 'The Good wife' on Netflix and I've caught a few of them. I was surprised at how good it is. A smart legal drama, seems a bit west-wingy to me.

Deadwood is absolutely brilliant. They only made three fifths of it and the only TV series I've seen that are better are The Wire and The Sopranos.

 

Lots of great shows mentioned so far but haven't seen Six Feet Under, Community, Peep Show, The Thick Of It or Louie mentioned yet. All of which are excellent.
