Which TV show will satisfy my needs?

Post#1 » Mon Oct 11, 2010 2:36 pm

Hi, i am new to this forum and i might as well take my time and say hi now that i've created a new topic.

The thing is, i feel like i have already watched all the TV shows worth watching. I hope that you can prove me wrong! these are the ones i have finished watching together with my personal ratings.


• Entourage (4/5)
• Californication (5/5)
• Weeds (4.5/5)
• Breaking Bad (5/5)
• 30 Rock (4/5)
• True Blood (5/5)
• Nip/Tuck (2.5/5)
• How i met your mother (5/5)
• Greek (3.5/5)
• Chuck (3/5)

So, which show is to be my next one?

The Inbetweeners is great, although I always feel my childish side is being indulged...

Is Homicide Life on the Street the precursor to The Wire? If so I may need to get on that.

almost but not quite. it did spin off with law & order apparently but dont hold that against it.

there are certain similarities between homicide and the wire though. and without it police procedural shows today just wouldnt exist.

Given your previous preferences, I'd recommend three HBO shows (in alphabetical and chronological order):

Carnivàle (2003): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0319969/
Deadwood (2004): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0348914/
Rome (2005): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0384766/

Be aware that all three ended early, so you may get frustrated with some loose ends not being tied up (IMO, Rome has the most satisfactory ending of the three). But if you know that up front, you can be prepared, and all are excellent entertainment.

NOTE: If you're not American, you may have difficulty understanding the language in Deadwood. The show attempts to have the characters talk in what's supposed to sound like an authentic old west dialect (though many of the words were actually made up by the writers and the specific profanity used was noticeably modern). Subtitles would definitely help - even for born & bred Americans, the language can be hard to follow!
