I had kind of taken a a break from TV shows but am back & picked up following shows

- FARGO - I had seen the movie but the tv series is equally exciting with some great actors, on Episode 2 right not.

- Orange is the New Black - Finally picked it up, one thing folks here forgot to mention is that it has lot of explicit scenes that too in the pilot episode LOL. Had to stop watching a few times before I could really watch it safely(I usually watch it during transit). Looks interesting so far.

Justified - Good drama series, the characters are great. It's about a city cop who is transferred to his town in Kentucky.

Vice - It is a offbeat news series, covering what's currently happening in the world, that's generally not covered by the mainstream media.

Should you watch it? Here's a video from their YT channel, check it out and decide for yourself!

Not much of a TV person but when I do, I mostly hook on to:
1. F1, cricket, football leagues and WWE (yes, still a big fan )
2. Man vs Wild (big fan of Bear Grylls) , Brain Games and other interesting shows on NatGeo, Discovery etc
3. Lifestyle shows - Friends (all time fav), Dexter (alas! its over now) and my current fav, The Walking Dead (highly addicted and super excited for season 5 to air)
4. Vh1 and 9XO for music

Watching The Blacklist and hooked on to it. James Spader, Megan Boone and Diego Klattenhoff are just awesome. Few characters are developed as complex as Reddington.

Its brilliant, aint it?
Less the way he looks, more his diction. Glad its not being pulled like other good ones.

Also waiting for his voice over for Ultron in the next Avengers flick.

Same here. Very nice series. Just started season 2 a couple of days back. Another good show is Parenthood (originally on NBC but also available via Netflix, 5 seasons in all with another one in the works.)

Downloaded and watching "The Wire". Into Season 2. Very interesting series. About the cops and criminals of the murky underworld.

I was looking for a good series to watch after "Breaking Bad" and finished "The Sopranos". Then moved to this series.

Whoops! I completely forgot to mention that aspect when I had recommended it in the thread sometime back.

Anyways we have started the second season and watched 3 episodes. Perfect for those meal time viewing sessions. And it continues to be awesome just like the first season.

Meanwhile, a new vampire-horror-drama series has begun airing on FX titled The Strain. Guillermo del Toro co-created and directed the pilot episode which seems to have received some good reviews. Shall be watching it one of these days and will report back.

The Wire is in a different league altogether. One of the best shows ever. I will keep it alongside Breaking Bad. I don't agree with most IMDB ratings but this one is spot on.

So after watching a few episodes i am liking both Fargo & Orange is The New Black.

Orange is good with some good acting & a different type of storyline.

Interestingly Fargo story is different than what it was in movie. Also wiki suggests that the disclaimer of this being based on True events is not entirely true, I am surprised they were able to get away with that disclaimer.

Having said that, its a gripping story so I am not complaining.

I hope you forgot to type game of thrones because if you actually haven't watched it, you're missing out :-). Apparently the next season airs next year so you have all the time to catch up.

OT: I watched game of thrones from the very beginning and waited for every episode and every season and the second I told a friend about it last week, he managed to watch 4 seasons in 3 days and is suddenly a bigger fan than me and just can't stop yapping about it all the time. It's just so irritating. Wish I'd never told him.
