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

If you like Spartacus, you should check out Banshee I'd say it's better than Spartacus

Breaking Bad

and Justified. Timothy Olyphant is great in that show.

I'm digging Southland right now.

I just love "Mad Men," not to mention the eye candy that is Jon Hamm.

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

Battlestar Galactica
The Sopranos
Entourage
Lost
The West Wing
Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip
-- If you can get ur hands on it, there's only one season but its good ass sh-t!
Brothers & Sisters -- I really liked this show as well
Flashforward -- Also only one season but you'd wish there was more of it
Lie to Me -- Only 3 seasons..such a pity they give shows like this the axe but stuff like Gossip Girl makes it to its gazillionth season
White Collar -- Pretty good show as well.. tho we lost interest mid season 2, well....to be honest my better half lost interest..hmph...
The Good Wife
Fringe
Downton Abbey
An Idiot Abroad

Note: The first 6 shows from the top are the epitome of awesomeness!
