Hooked to Homeland these days. Started a bit slow to my expectations, but the story is very gripping and the acting is top notch. I love Sauls' character.
Was also watching Lie To Me. Interesting concept but not every episode is a winner, though the lead Dr. Cal Lightman has acted beautifully.

Am up to date with quite a few shows, someone would say I spend too much time watching these tv shows -

2 Broke Girls - Enjoyable and funny
Breaking Bad - A must watch, though can be graphic at times
Boardwalk Empire - Again found it very interesting, HBO does know how to make their shows
Burn Notice - Nothing extraordinary, but definitely watchable and entertaining
Castle - Interesting, and surprisingly not predictable yet.
Dexter - Another brilliant show, it is gory though
Entourage - Need I say anything?
Franklin and Bash - Just ok, to pass time
Game of Thrones - What a show, can't wait for the third season
House of Lies - First season was watchable, going to start the second season now
How I Met Your Mother - Thoroughly bored of it now, infact have stopped watching.
How to Make it in America - The second season was great, pity it got cancelled
Modern Family - Pure entertainment
New Girl - Again just to pass time, its ok IMO. Have to catch up on some episodes
Outsourced - Was funny how they portrayed Indians
Prison Break - First 3 seasons were brilliant, the 4th got a little boring
Suits - Another great show, 2nd season going on now
Terra Nova - Pity it got cancelled after the 1st season, I heard another network may be bringing it back
The Big Bang Theory - Another show full of entertainment, love it
The Newsroom - A different storyline, yet very interesting. The next season is going to be good
Top Gear -
Two and Half Men - Ashton Kutcher is no Charlie Sheen, the show is different now, but not bad really
White Collar - Still keeps me entertained

Any suggestions on any other TV shows?

I would suggest Californication. It's a bit like Entourage. You have a lot of catching up to do though, the 6th Season has just begun.

Top Gear was a total disappointment.

Grey's Anatomy & Homeland are two good shows currently.

I also happened to catch 'Transporter: the series' yesterday. The episode was pretty ridiculous and would put any C grade Hindi movie to shame. The story was about the transporter trying to get a human heart to the hospital to save some young kid's life but is chased by the mafia who want the heart to save someone of their own. Hopefully, the forthcoming episodes will be more professionally done.

Seen a few seasons, got a bit bored of it. Maybe I should start again.

I was initially drawn to it because of that lovely black 911 Cabrio. The whole show is sort of stupid but it's a decent way to pass the time.

Ok started watching Suits (season 1). Just two episodes in, but I'm really liking the show so far. Witty, funny and smooth. This one's a keeper.
