I know you hate my name thread but can I get some help here. I am watching Prison Break Season 1 right now and I am looking for some other t.v. series to pick up to watch. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have already watched Lost, Entourage 1&2, and Heroes up to this season.

I am planning to watch Nip/Tuck

Battlestar Galactica
The Wire
Arrested Development

Make sure you watch the whole first season of Prison Break. After that, its up to you. Season 2 is cool. Season 3 is meh. Season 4 is alright.

I wish they would put all The Wire episodes on hbo on demand. I missed the boat on that one.

I concur with Battlestar. That show rocks.

Life is another good one that not many people seem to be watching. Just in its second season. And Rescue Me is really good. Was maybe my favorite show but its been off the air for so long. The new season starts soon I think.

Agreed on Life, I've fallen behind on the last few episodes but the that show is very well done.

Edit: If you like these type of shows NCIS and Bones are also pretty good.

Check out the English version of Life on Mars. Fantastic. It aired on BBC Channel here, but you can buy it on DVD, I'm sure. Only a couple of seasons, so perfect for purchasing as you can get from start to finish in a reasonable amount of time.

They just did an excellent job with casting. The American version tried hard, and wasn't bad... but just couldn't match up. There's something oddly authentic about it, even though it's obviously retro by design. Nothing groundbreaking as far as plot, but some good execution. Just good, quality stuff.. always with a few laughs, as well.

Yeah thats cool. Just watch it, you'll love it, I can almost guarantee that.

I have yet to hear from anybody that they tried watching it and couldn't get hooked.

One word of advice. The first couple episodes are a little slow, especially the first. So make sure you dont quit after one episode.

Its pretty much that way with every season.

Entourage
Sopranos
Deadwood
Six Feet Under (if you can stomach seeing dudes make-out alot)
Big Love
Flight of the Concords
Sex in the City (if you're a chick....or maybe want to impress one)

Honestly, HBO has ruined me for network television. Nothing on the networks holds a candle to the quality writing and acting HBO brings.

Of course, being able to air profanity, extremely graphic violence and boobies helps too I suppose, lmao!!

PS - Yah, Firefly also.

AD didn't get ratings for three reasons: 1. it was too smart for the majority of television watching Americans. 2.

Have not read through all the responses to see if this was mentioned, but HBO's series "Carnivale" is incredible. It's a fantastic mind-trip of a show with religious/apocalyptic themes throughout, all set in depression-era U.S.A in a carnival (replete with bearded lady, muscle man, snake charmers, conjoined twins, etc.). A wonderful show.


Beyond that, I would second/third/fourth (whatever number we're on):

The Wire (best cops-and-robbers show I've ever seen)
LOST
B.o.n.e.s (my wife and I watch it together, it's a fun show for that kind of setting. I wouldn't watch it on my own, but it's good)

It really was a great show but I think it was a good thing that it got canceled (although definitely a bit prematurely). They could have kept it going for a while longer but anything more than another season or two and it would have gotten stale. But what it did and how it did it was completely different than every other comedy show. Really great timing on their part.

A.D. reminded me of an advanced version of SOAP...

they developed the characters so well that they could go in practically any direction they wanted to keep things from getting stale...

here's one not mentioned yet...

"Action" with Jay Mohr.

http://www.hulu.com/action

it was Entourage before there was Entourage. it's a pretty funny satire of the whole movie business from the perspective of an ego-maniacal producer. it aired on cable a few years ago, but was cancelled before all episodes aired. you can watch it on Hulu (legal & free). Google the show to find its wiki page to make sure you watch the episodes in the intended order, and not the order they were aired on TV.

Mohr's new series isn't bad either. it's airing on TV now, called "Gary, Unmarried".

The show (Always Sunny in Philly) is hilarious and really pushes the boundaries of social norms for a comedy show. I tell my friends its like seinfeld on crack and living out of a bar rather than an apartment... which reminds me of that episode where they started doing crack to get on welfare and got addicted.

I usually feel real dirty after watching a few episodes back to back, but I have to admit its addicting and funny. I could see how one would think its retarded based on how retarded the people in it act, but thats part of its brilliance.

In Treatment http://www.hbo.com/intreatment/
Eastbound & Down http://www.hbo.com/eastboundanddown/

Eastbound and Down is funny. Only a few laugh out loud moments, but if you're a baseball fan, you'll be smiling at alot of it. The funniest thing is that the guys who created/wrote the show admit to not even knowing much about baseball. But their character study of the loud, self-important, obnoxious, oblivious, one-time star athlete looking for one last shot at glory is a welcome antidote to all of those syrupy feel-good baseball stories you usually see about the former major leaguer who get one more shot at glory and succeed.

Prison Break is solid too, it tapers off after the first season, but season 1 owns.

I personally thought Generation Kill was a hit job on our troops ...

Depicts them as ignorant people who just get there jollies from killing and making dick jokes ...

I never saw the series, but read the book.. I didnt think it came off that way.
I could see how you would think that, we are just used to seeing 'Band of Brothers' type things..whereas we live in a much different world now.

I know you hate my name thread but can I get some help here. I am watching Prison Break Season 1 right now and I am looking for some other t.v. series to pick up to watch. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have already watched Lost, Entourage 1&2, and Heroes up to this season.

I am planning to watch Nip/Tuck

I have heard 24 is prett good. Any others?

I'd recommend very highly "The Shield".

Awesome, I see lots of people here have given the right answers, but I will reiterate :D

Firefly.
Dexter.
Arrested Development.
That is television at its finest good sir.

I also enjoy Pushing Daisies and Entourage!

It's actually pretty accurate. As a Marine I enjoyed it. I know someone who was just like nearly every character in the book and movie. Not all Marines are crazy, but I've met a few who are "out there". You'd be surprised what goes on when you haven't slept for 48 hours.

Not to get completely off topic, but one thing that might help people understand why it looks like military personel (especially Marines) get enjoyment out of combat is because it's one of the few times they get to do their jobs for real. Imagine being on a sports team and all you do is practice, day in and day out you just practice. You'll be pretty excited and may act like a fool once you step onto the field to play a real game. That's the best analogy I can come up with that explains it.

Don't feel like sifting through 4 pages to see if anyone posted it but...

"Band of Brothers" is pretty good. It originally aired on HBO.

Hahaha, I just finished one of the last episodes of the fourth season of Battlestar Galactica.

When I first heard about it I was like "Oh that's for nerds." but it rocks.

Battlestar is the best ever. The new one, not the old 70's one. It may have had the best series finale EVER!

30 Rock is good for comedy.

It's E.R.or Grey's anatomy...but good and funny.

Can't believe that no one has mentioned this, but I would suggest a British Series, Top Gear. Plenty of episodes, but you pretty much have to eyepatch the series right now. It's not out on DVD yet. It's airing on BBC American.

My Other Favorites:
1. LOST
2. Galactica
3. Chuck
4. Heroes (Season 1 only)
5. Babylon 5 (old school now)
6. Sopranos.
7. The Wire
8. Firefly (must see if you have not seen it).
9. Leverage

I really liked the first two seasons of Prison Break, but it seemed to really go downhill in the third season.

I'll also be buying Sons of Anarchy when it comes out on Dvd. I caught the last few episodes of the first season and am looking forward to seeing the other episodes.

A show that I never watched but one that my daughter LOVES is Punky Brewster.

I have to admit that is a great show and anyone who has an 8-12 year-old girl show get it. Really a great show with good lessons. It is much better than Different Strokes, Webster or Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

FNL is great fly on the wall drama that never really runs into cliche. Everything is handled with humility and subtlety (except for the football scene, which are all on point, ironically). Great characters, fantastic acting. Its not a football show, really. it's a show about a small town that centers itself on a high school football team.

Prison Break, after season 2, is a friggin joke. The only reason its still even around is because it does REALLY well overseas. Seriously, Wentworth Miller is a big star in Japan! He's been waiting for the show to end for a while. If you wanna see some horrid tv, watch prison break tonight (its the last few eps). It's beyond horrible.

If you like anime at all:

1) Cowboy Bebop - bounty hunters, space travel, and a really groovy soundtrack. (26 episoides)

2) Samurai Champloo - excellent samurai sword fight sequences. My favorite. (26 episodes)

3) Samurai 7 - based on traditional Seven Samurai, great story but it does fizzle at the end. (26 episodes)

4) Gunslinger Girl - little girls wielding hi-power sniper rifles...lol, only the Japanese! (?? episodes)

I wouldn't suggest buying any of these when you can get them at your local library but here is a start:

The Wire
Deadwood
Rome
Curb your entusiam - Larry David
State of play - BBC version - As good as the Wire.

My Favs
1. BSG (not even close. Just excellent ambitious work; maybe even in literary)
2. Dexter (manages to stay incredibly fresh t/o; compelling moral drama).
3. Rome (gripping television; the grit and realism of this show is uncanny)
4. The Wire (best ever crime drama, while it bucks a lot of conventions, it became clunky in how it would involve all the main characters each season, thought the last season is just a fine piece of work).
5. Arrested Development (best sitcom ever, incredible replay value)
6. LOST (such potential, but it has become convoluted the last couple seasons)
7. Six Feet Under (great writing, deep characters, a bit frustrating to make it all the way through as it sucks the life out of you by the end)
8. Sopranos (lost a lot of its momentum, and kinda fizzles with "well just who is left to kill")
9. Firefly (incredible inventive sci-fi series, too bad it was only one season)
10. Jericho (great concept, good the first half of the first season, but worth watching (just two seasons) if you like a fallout America idea.)

I really can't emphasize enough how good Battle Star Galactica is. If you watch it from the begining just an incredible ride that is seems guided by really intelligent design throughout, great management of character and theme, all while just kicking lots of ass.
