Arrested development is one of the most underrated sitcoms out there. BTW, Breaking Bad season 5 has begun. First episode was good.

Any Sheldon Cooper quotes fans out here ??

I will start with two of my favourites

"Engineering is merely the slow younger brother of physics" on trying to fix their robot MONTE without Wolowitz

"I am too evolved to learn driving" on failing to learn how to drive in a simulator

I watch Air Crash Investigations on Nat Geo. Though cant follow it regularly due to irregular working hours. Its one of the most interesting and addictive shows.

Top gear, HIMYM and BBT are fun. Have you watched The Shield? One of the best cop dramas I have ever seen.

I am presently downloading all five seasons of The Wire. Read great reviews about it. After The Wire I will go for Sons of Anarchy.

Do try The Shield, all seasons. I simply loved the show and would rate it as the best I ever watched, better then even Game of thrones & Spartacus. Downloading Southland already Could find only one season uncensored.

Somehow Dexter did not appeal to me. I watched a few episodes but felt it was moronic, esp the lead actor and his thoughts being said out loud in a dead pan voice.

Somewhat i can agree to your view on dexter. But after a few initial episodes , its no longer about "a kill each episode" , the story stays , for the complete season. And yeah, i am waiting for the next season of game of thrones and breaking bad. In Game of thrones, i simply hated that dragon queen , its too unreal. I mean, big wolves and those snow riders still look ok. But with dragons they crossed the line !

Err, the Game of thrones is based on a very very famous series of novels by George RR Martin. Its a cult fantasy novel series, running for almost 2 decades now. Its called "Songs of Fire and Ice", and its a FANTASY GENRE novel. You know, this genre usually has magic swords, sorcery, dragons... etc., I hope you were not watching it thinking of it as an adult soap opera?

Yeah. I have not tried the novel though. Not a big fan of reading.
BTW Suggest some series ! I need something similar to 'Wire' or 'SOA'. Will go through all the previous posts as well.
