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

I guess The Mentalist is quite known..."Lie to me" is over but it is worth watching. We watch White Collar...The new "Alcatraz" is quite interesting, "Person of interest" is good, "Castle" is fun

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

Watch the first season of Game of Thrones! It's quite awesome (off the subject at hand: the books are REALLY good as well). It does have nudity and some violence though (not anything particularly gory or bloody as far as I remember).

Arrested Development is pretty funny.

edit: Apparently I fail at reading comprehension and just saw that you have already watched thrones, ha ha. I still stand by Arrested Development though

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

If you like homeland and fringe maybe you like Boss, The Killing and The Wire too, they are pretty dark.
Boardwalk Empire, also pretty dense.
And I agree! the West Wing is awesome...

Breaking Bad

and Justified. Timothy Olyphant is great in that show.

I'm digging Southland right now.

My kids rave about Once Upon a Time, but I think Grimm seems more up my street. Will have to check it out.
