If you were in love with Boston Legal, Suits will disappoint. It's ok but it's just not nearly as good or funny. I'll keep trying it though.

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

Yeah i know .. Suits aint that good .. but yeah Boston Legal was legendary ..

James Spader and William Shatner combo was rocking ..

but there hasn been a good legal series after that .. i mean not that i am aware of .. so I never keep my expectations to that level .. in fact i can watch the boston legal series over and over again ..
yeah the paralegal is damn hot .. i totally agree

White collar ..
A decent one .. every episode has a new story .. and one story running in the background for the whole season .. the Neal character is interesting .. and also I find it interesting enough the way they solve the cases .. and how they come up with the plot to go undercover .. and the neal guy knows .. everything in the world

if you have seen Burn Notice .. its almost on the same line...

Modern family- great character psychology + very funny
Breaking bad- dark but great acting
Mad Men- if you've worked in the advertising industry you'll enjoy it loads

"Ripper Street" has got better as it's progressed. 8-part series, but I thought the acting was very wooden in the first couple of episodes. As the storyline's progressed there's been more emotion from all the characters. There's nice sub-stories/plots going on from episode to episode too. It's a bit brutal at times; episode 7 I found really chilling.

If you want to watch a really bad updating of Sherlock Holmes, i.e. even worse than the current British version, watch "Elementary".

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

I agree with the sentiment that Ripper Street is a good period drama. I thought the first episode was very good, brilliantly-confusing and odd at the same time.

And did we mention New Girl yet? Who's that girl? Who's that girl? It's JESS!

OK just watched the start of Cult. I think I'm going to like it and it's lead me to find The Following.

Thank you favourite Swedish site

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

Just started watching House of Cards, a recently released series by Netflix (the whole first season was released in one go). Stars Kevin Spacy among others. Looks promising.
