Re: good TV series recomendations..... ?

Is anyone feeling a bit underwhelmed by The Musketeers? I don't know. It looks great, but it's taken me 3 episodes to get who's who of the Musketeers straight in my head. Don't really feel like the storyline's going anywhere much yet either.

It's got a second series evidently, but doesn't look like Peter Capaldi will be in it due to his DW commitments.

I like Silent Witness on The BBC.
Sometimes it's a bit gruesome, so I watch it peeping out through the fingers in front of my eyes.

The Good Wife! Definitely a good one.

If you want another ER Drama...Toronto Based "Saving Hope" is good, and "Rookie Blue" (Police Drama)

I want to get hold of Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror too, I missed the first series and the start of the second, so will torrent that too.
Ah! I've been reading through the thread, crossing off various suggestions from my mental list (notably: GoT, Sherlock, Battlestar Galactica, Dr. Who, pretty much anything starring John Cleese) and hoping I could contribute with Black Mirror. But no! :P

I think I can only add the X-Files for lazy Sunday afternoons.

If you are into somewhat cult sci-fi series, the retake of V was quite enjoyable. Aliens, reptiles and intrigue pretty much sums it up! It was discontinued though.

Discovered "Continuum" recently.
Absolutely hooked - and shocked at how close we actually are to the events depicted in it.
I didn't know that one, thanks a lot!

The OH watched it (on too late for me to see two episodes at a time). He's just started on Salamandar which is another in the same vein.

Re: good TV series recomendations..... ?

The original British series is great and campy. The Danish series Borgen is top flight as is the Italian Romanzo Criminale...

I preferred the first series, but enjoyed both a lot.

I was disappointed by the end of series 2 though

Spoiler - Click here

I suppose it shows the quality of the series that it annoyed me in this way.

I watched the first couple of episodes of Salamander. It looks promising, it's certainly compelling.

I've not managed to really get into The Killing. I've only seen a few episodes, so perhaps it's just a slow starter, but so far I don't care about any of the characters. I've got the rest of the series waiting to be watched, but I don't feel very motivated.

Shameless (UK), season 4 finale. Yes, I know it's a few years old but it's 11 seasons of absolute brilliance....and the Take That tribute is fun indeed....especially if you know the characters

Yeah, Channel 5 ran the first 6 episodes and then dropped it, saying it'll be back later in the year. If you can't run a series in one go don't bother broadcasting a few episodes and then dumping it until at later date. Any fans it makes will be so pissed off they won't bother to watch when it does eventually return.

Re: good TV series recomendations..... ?

I am currently enjoying a lot a Belgian series called Salamander, aired by BBC 4 on Saturdays. It is mostly Flemish (and a slight touch of French) with english subs. I think it's on iPlayer if you have access to it.

The 2nd season of Bron (the original scandinavian) was absolutely amazing, better than the first one. It will be a long 18 months before it comes back for season 3.
There's a new danish show called Arvingerne (The Legacy) which is supposed to console those of us who miss Borgen. I watched a few episodes and it's a good drama (mostly dealing about family issues, inheritance, etc.. not exactly thriller material, but I doubt we will see soon a new Forbrydelsen).

The second season of The Following.. I don't like it much so far, it has lost that suspense which was so prominent in its freshman year...

I'm looking forward to new seasons for The Americans and Orphan Black.
Also Braquo (French cop drama - think "The Shield" in Paris - same level than Engrenages/Spiral) is in its 3rd and final season. Highly recommended.

And finally, Banshee is my guilty pleasure, together with Strike Back.
