What new TV series to watch?
Give Deadwood a try. The aptly named Al Swearingen makes Malcolm Tucker sound like Miss Marple.

In the last two weeks I've said farewell to Lost, 24 and Ashes to Ashes. I've also finally finished watching all of The West Wing on DVD. I'm now stuck for a new series to watch, although several people have recommended The Wire. Any recommendations for something intelligent and witty? I'm not opposed to extreme violence either…Posted 7 years ago
Agree with Battlestar Gallactica recommendation.
I watched the first 2 series on telly, then it got a bit hard ot track down when they were going to be on so bought the last 2 series off of iTunes. Outstanding entertainment!Posted 7 years ago
That's cool then – we got it on DVD as a gift (after hearing it was meant to be good) but haven't got around to watching it yet. 🙂joolsburgerMember
I've been watching that Stargate Universe thing – It's pretty shite to be honest but kills the odd hour.
The beeb just keep coming up with the goods documentary wise, the atom thing and the science thing are good.
Also the Pacific is OK too, in a sort of aren't we Americans just bloody fantastic sort of way.Posted 7 years ago
I'm enjoying SG:Universe, it's very slow-paced but pretty atmospheric.
Had The Wire very heavily recommended.
It's an aquired taste, but (as a sci-fi nerd) Farscape is one of the best sci-fi shows ever (apart from Firefly). Well, well worth getting over any preconceptions and giving a chance, it's a superb mix of dark and witty.
New one that I've yet to watch but is supposed to be ace is Breaking Bad.
If you're a geek, Chuck and The Big Bang Theory are dripping with in-jokes. TBBT is like a US version of the IT Crowd, only considerably funnier.
Dexter is supposed to be ace, again I've not got round to watching it yet.
The first series of Heroes was great, then it kinda didn't know what to do with itself.Posted 7 years agomonkeychildMember
The Shield – ClassPosted 7 years ago
Dexter – Class
The Wire – Found it a bit slow at times
Generation Kills – Amazing
Breaking Bad – Shouldn't work but it does
SG-U – I like it and I am not in to the whole sci-fi thing
Sons of anarchy – Ace and I am waiting for the next season
True Blood – Can't wait for the next season!!!
Modern Family – Quite funnyHeathenWoodsMember
Go and watch all five series of The Wire immediately!!
Best thing I've ever seen on TV I think. I'm trying to forget it as quickly as possible so I can go back and watch it all again..
Hmm, I quite enjoyed season 1 but never made it to the 2nd eisode of season 2.
Enjoyed Battlestar Galactica, Lars van Trier's The Kingdom is now old but was awesome and I'm quite enjoying Fringe for the X-Files vibes (and references).Posted 7 years ago
