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

New NBC series Crisis looks promising, maybe not the best of storyline so far but I have only seen the Pilot.

Intrigued is the word I would use, especially considering that Gillian Anderson (Agent Scully from X files) and Dermot Mulroney (My Best Friend's Wedding) are both main actors in the series.

+1 for "The Newsroom"

Jeff Daniels and the cast in general is amazing in this

The Crimson Field, BBC1, Sundays at 22:00. Nice period piece set in a British field hospital during WW1.

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

Has anybody mentioned Dowton Abbey yet? I became so hooked I bought the DVDs of all 4 seasons because it is not on the air at the moment and I believe season 4 has not been released yet in Switzerland. There will be 10 seasons all in all and I can't wait for season 5 to come on.

Silicon Valley.

edit: the hilarious thing is that S01E01 opens with Kid Rock playing for geeks. Which is hilarious for me because the last time I saw him, he was playing for geeks too. You probably don't get the irony but don't worry, I don't care

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

Crisis. Very good indeed.

24 just started again, I've not seen it but I predict there will be a split within the household on how popular that is - the first season was the best.....can that fact be changed in 2014?

Oh please no, it's awful. Sanitised WWI drama for the Call the Midwife brigade. The only good thing about it is Oona Chaplin .

We started watching Breaking Bad from the beginning; watched the entire 1st series on a wet easter Monday. It's excellent, but my wife often can't take more than a couple of episodes at a time, she finds it too stressful.

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

Just did the Worricker trilogy - very good indeed, like up-to-date Le Carre with top-class performances. And did series 1 one of Line of Duty, just as good as the recent 2nd series.

Starting now on UK TV and maybe promising are Prey, Orphan Black 2nd series, Hinterland, In the Flesh, and Happy Valley.

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

For any fans of "Weeds", I suggest ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK which used to be a Netflix-Exclusive, but it's become so popular that it soon'll find it's way on TV as some channels have already purchased their rights on it. Don't miss it - it's hilarious!

Here's the trailooooooor:
