I am really into tv series ( in contrast to tv itself wink.gif ), here are my faves:
The Sopranos (best mafia Series EVER!!!)
Rome
Game of Thrones (This is love/hate for me, the series itself is very cool, but they completely drift away from the books, which is horrible)
The Walking Dead
Big Bang Theory
Gene Simmons Family Jewels
Terminator - S.S.C. (unfortunately ended after the second season, unfinished)
Twin Peaks
X-Files



Great ones! Thanks mate!

Does anybody know this one? My girlfriend really recommended me but the bad thing about this is that it was cancelled in the 2 seasons so it's unfinished...

well... I am not the biggest fan of TV series and there are only two that I really watched from beginning to end and that are

24 with Kiefer Sutherland and

(thanks to my wife who first forced me to watch it which I later enjoyed I have to admit)
friends

and sometimes when I really have too much time (which I never have)
scrubs

rolleyes.gif I think this answer is not good for my reputation...

24 was nice too, indeed. I really liked season 1, this "realtime" aspect was a cool idea. I think I also watched seasons 2 and 3, but somehow I dropped out at that point.
This trailer for Carnivale looks very good, it reminds me A LOT of a graphic novel that I love, called "Freaks of the heartland". Too bad that it is unfinished, I hate it when they cut something in the middle

yes, it really bad when that happens... the youtube comments say... "they should have given more promotion to this great tv series" sad.gif

I am checking that novel and the graphics are too close! I will definitely try to get it. smile.gif

Get it!!! I am a big fan of graphic novels, and this one is among my faves. I can also recommend "30 days of night", forget about the movie, it is horrible, but the original graphic novels are SOOOOOOOOOOO good! Plus anything from Neil Gaiman, or Alan Moore...

My mates in Aria are watching this and they nagged me a lot of time regarding it, but I just didn't get the time to watch it smile.gif

Now, if you're into martial arts tongue.gif You can watch the Japanese series - Musashi (go figure laugh.gif ) or Tsukahara Bokuden - they are both sword oriented, so if you don't like the idea, they might be a bit boring, but they are full of fighting and humorous stuff.

Are anime series included here? biggrin.gif If yes, go for Samurai Champloo!

As for more normal series - I totally recommend the first season in 'Prison break'

Seems like you are going to have a lot of TV to watch smile.gif

I'm a little late, and since you already watch The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones I'd recommend:

True Blood - it is good. Those who have read the books have issue with the show as it strays from the books. I've read the books and some stuff bugs me but all in all the show is very entertaining.

The Sopranos - Have to agree with Marcus as it is the best Mafia show EVER and probably my fave TV show of all time.

Rome - There was unfortunately only 2 seasons of this show. The first season is all about Ceasar so not hard to figure out the outcome wink.gif Ciaran Hinds does a brilliant job as Ceasar and why they didn't do the whole series about him I have no idea. 2nd season was good but doesn't compare to the first imho. Still worth a watch though.

Sons of Anarchy - One of the best shows on TV right now. It's about the trials and tribulations of a biker gang in California. Amazing performances and the story line is sooo good. Can't wait until Tuesday when season 5 starts smile.gif

Boardwalk Empire - Great show about organized crime in Atlantic City during prohibition. Steve Buscemi is brilliant in it.

The Wire - One of the best shows EVER

The Big Bang Theory - I'm picky when it comes to comedy series but this is one of the best. So smart and very very funny.

X-Files - It's a classic, one of the best smile.gif

I also have Boardwalk Empire and 3 seasons of True Blood lying here, and Flash Forward... I NEED MORE TIME smile.gif And about Rome, yes, there are only 2 seasons, but they are awesome! I read an interview with the producers, and everybody was bugging them to do a thirf season. Well, they refused, cause they only had the budget to do two seasons at this level, a third season would mean they would have to compromise on everything and so they decided to got for 2 high quality seasons. Right decision if you ask me!

Great list Rok! Thank you! smile.gif

I'm trying to find the time to start watching True Blood.
