No comments on Packed to the Rafters. But I am desperately waiting for Masterchef Australia to start. Especially after the Masterchef India has started. It irritates me to watch this show. Whenever they say: "Amul present Masterchef India, Kitchen ke superstars, powered by Fortune me aapka swagat hai" at every break/ welcome; I feel like

No other country Masterchef can match Australia. The grace, the challenges, the techniques, the masterclass is unique and so enjoyable. Masterchef India is trying to be Roadies

I do too.
But its sort becoming just "packed"....most of the rafters are off!!
Rachel was awesome, and the main draw, for me at least. But I still catch up on it.

Could someone suggest me something good to watch?
I enjoy watching adventure, drama, mystery, Sci-Fi and thriller genres.
Apart from the walking dead, I have already watched Lost, 24, Prison break from this genre.
You should watch Haven, Alcatraz, Revolution, Arrow, Once Upon a Time, Game of Thrones, Grimm these shows pretty much cover all the genres you mentioned

I watched few episodes but then got bored of it. Same with One Tree Hill. The interest is waning off. Too much drama happening among just a few characters.

Watch Boston Legal. You will like it too.
Started watching The Good Wife and liked it. However I felt the Suits is definitely better. But my best legal series have to be the "The Firm". Pity it didn't get extended beyond Series 1.

Don't know if it has been mentioned before but if someone is looking for a real life gritty crime/police drama, I would suggest "The Wire".
I just finished watching it and was completely blown away by the attention to detail.

Its a real slow to start but patience pays off. If you do decide to watch it, do yourself a favour and watch with subtitles

Arrow is developing VERY nicely, I think. Its become really sophisticated, even from a story point of view. And the guy is good portraying a batman-esque rendition. Really cool.
Its come to this that if i am at home, I watch it with just a 10 minute time lag on the DVR , and that too to just get rid of the ads.

The thing that works for me in favor of The Good Wife is that apart from the legal drama, there is lot of emotional drama involving lot of characters and also there is Kalinda Sharma

Suits has just 4-5 main characters and not much drama though the legal drama is as good as Good Wife.

Since I loved The Shield, I am sure I will like The Wire. Have the 5 seasons on my hard drive but am not finding time to watch it. Presently watching House of Cards, an amazing political drama.

Watch the Wire. I just finished it and am itching to discuss it with someone.
If you like political drama, my other suggestion is Boss. Its Kelsey Grammar at his very very best.

Watched this new show Hannibal yesterday. It's different from the rest of usual suspense/drama/thriller/mystery shows.

If you liked Dexter, don't give this one a miss - you'll get hooked!
