A while back in 2008 I became a TV series junkie and started exploring a lot of new shows.
From those listed Pushing Daisies and Dirty, Sexy, Money both got cancelled part way through the second season (very sad)..obviously too intelligent for the US audiences. Thankfully Dexter turned out to be excellent, I’ve watched ALL seasons of the Soprano’s and The Wire – two of the best TV series ever made in my opinion..I’ll watch both of them again in full and I’ll write about both of those later..they are a bit heavy and require a little more thought and consideration though.
Just started Chuck and it’s ok but a bit cheesy and predictable, tried Reaper but it get’s repetitive very fast. A new found favourite is the UK series Skins, pure excellence. Also Californication is good, just started Lie To Me – seems good so far. House was a favourite but also got repetitive after a while, CSI is always a good filler, some UK series I threw in too are IT Crowd and Shameless both pretty entertaining, watched all seasons of The Shield – not bad but certainly not up to The Wire, fell asleep during The Tudors and well that sums up most of it.
Those which I’ve got but haven’t started yet are as follows:
- Mad Men
- How I Met Your Mother
