If you like legal dramas, then nothing can beat The Good Wife among the new series. Suits, esp 3rd season is to do more with inner office bickering than enough legal stuff.

Check out TGW, you will know what I am talking about.

Thanks @norules I ll check out the good wife. Suits surely is not the court room drama type series.

Just finished watching 3 seasons of Game of Thrones. OMG. It's awesome. Probably my all time favorite now with The Walking Dead being very close. Now the waiting for season 4 starts.

I rarely watch any series on TV. However I am hooked on to 'Tamas' being aired on History TV these days. Superb performances by stellar actors.

It is based on a book by the same name which is set in the backdrop of Partition of India.

Finished the first season of Game of Thrones. Interesting, although its the first TV series of its genre that I have watched.

Can get a bit gory and disturbing for some, but I was ok with all the blood and the nudity, all of which is totally non-erotic.

Will start season 2 now.

My favorite shows on TV have been:

Indian:
1. Sarabhai vs Sarabhai - Too bad they never considered doing a Season 2. Stellar performances from the leads! They don't make such shows anymore on Indian telly!

Phoren:
1. Dexter: Michael C. Hall's portrayal of Miami homicide department blood splatter analyst by the day and vigilante killer by the night is fantastic. Got a bit boring towards the latter seasons!

2. Big Bang Theory: A bunch of nerds and a hot chick next door neighbour. A recipe for fabulous comedy! Sheldon Cooper, the genius :-)

3. Two and a Half Men: There is no one quite like Charlie Sheen! He is irreplaceable on this show!

Not watching anything in particular these days. Don't have the time :-(.

Dexter in its last season is again the same top of the line series. With twists in every episode and the suspense which keeps u guessing all the time . Impending end which you dnt know which way its going to end makes it all more good. Must watch

Personally, i 've found the current final season of Dexter a little bit flat. Dr. Evelyn Vogel 's character has been disappointing for me and
But generally, Dexter has been one of the better drama series that i've seen. Over all the seasons, Michael C. Hall & Jennifer Carpenter have held the show to it's standards despite the writing becoming vey weak towards the end.

Season 4 with Trinity was the best one for me and all the more with the brilliant John Lithgow.

Note from mod : Spoiler removed... PS : Watch this mondays episode

The final season of Breaking Bad going on right now, is simply brilliant. Each episode is so well written and the performances. All the characters & actors are in a different league.

This season is only confirming what kind of a monster 'Heisenberg' really is.

Anybody caught the season opener of Sons of Anarchy? Ending was a cheap shot IMO.

Downton Abbey is another serial that i am hooked to. What amazing poise and diplomacy.

I have also started on Game of Thrones. 4 episodes in and I am still looking for something that will hold me to it.

Though its not the edge of the seat thriller, it does interest you.

I don't know about others but I do not know any actor in the serial from a previous role, except the midget. Hence I do not know who is a "big" star and who is not; so all the twists actually come as a surprise.

That said, season 4 will take a lotta time to finish and I am sure I would have forgotten most characters by then. So I am thinking of lapping up the books
