Yeah The Shield was great as well. Another show that I'd recommend is Orphan Black. You'll know halfway through the first episode if you're hooked or not. And it just gets better from there.


i might have finished a season or two. tatiana masalini (sp) is hot and played all those characters amazingly. i should have kept up :/


Season 1-4 were awesome. The last season just finished (season 5), it was the final season. I have been waiting for the season to end to binge watch it. Probably will start this week

Binged 1&2, bought 3 and made it through 2 or 3 episodes before moving on to other things.

Finally got thru Mad Men and just saw the finale yesterday and again the final scene on telly just now and I'm gonna rewatch 1:1 now. They're re-starting it on Direct 500.

End scene was a clever way of wrapping up Don's character, I thought. My overarching take on the series is that Don (or Dick Whitman) was the only character that truly mattered and his inner demons, daliances, thoughts, mystery, and commentaries could only take up so much time. I said before in other threads that the show reminded me of The Sopranos in some subtle ways more than any other I've seen, but it suffers a lot of characters that don't really move the needle. There were a lot of scenes depicting pop culture and behaviors/attitudes of yore that were well-executed, though. One of my favorite scenes was the young Drapers in nice clothes sitting on a public green having a picnic with his Cadillac behind him, looking like a 60s magazine image of the nuclear family. Then they finish and fling all their trash from their blanket onto the grass and drive away.

I was totally late to the party, but just last year I discovered the ridiculously hilarious It's Always Sunny... I've watched it twice thru already. Not sure where it is on this list but, it's in my top 3 TV comedies all-time.

Need to finish The Wire (I think I left after Season 2- where the are dealing with the ports) and get into GoT. There's just so many damn shows now, it seems.

Peaky Blinders

http://www.imdb.com/videoplayer/vi174569753?playlistId=tt2442560&ref_=tt_ov_vi


just started and binging lol finishing season 2 tom hardy ftw


I'm going to give this show another crack. About when does it "grab" you?


just finished. its not coming back till next year like GOT :/

i didn't think i'd like it as much as i did my expectations were pretty low i had just finished the show Taboo with tom hardy and it was like super dark and i thought peaky would be the same.

season 3 was a let down in some ways. its not a perfect show, but i like the principle character played by Cillian Murphy. and aiden gillian and adrien brody nice guest stars.

its kinda formulaic in that each season has a villain a plot his family being crazy. i'm going to recommend Boardwalk Empire to my friend who recommended peaky to me. think its kinda in the same mold.

damn. i binged that too fast. need a new show. any suggestions?


If you want to get out of the 20's into modern day crime, Sons of Anarchy is great. It's no Boardwalk Empire by any means but I think it has like 7 seasons so plenty of episodes.

If PB has you wanting something out of England, Luther is so underrated. Idris Elba is perfect in this role.


Sons of Anarchy was entertaining. Kind of corny in spots but whatever.

Just wrapped up PB and you gusy were spot on. PB hands down beats Boardwalk imo. Characters were much more engaging and the writing was pristine. Cillian as Tommy Shelby is light years ahead of Steve Buscemi acting as Steve Buscemi in Boardwalk Empire.

I was late to that party too and didn't start watching until 2011 after seeing Charlie Day in "Horrible Bosses". It's great they're still able to keep the show going while they're all doing their own projects.

I think they were just kidding when they advised you to binge watch Punky Brewster, johny. I do agree that Punky > Narcisse as a character, though.

Tell me Punky along with Alyssa Milano and Nicole Eggert weren't our elementary school crushes? Damn right Punky>.

If you like "Sunny" I recommend checking out "The Detour" on TBS. It's now in it's third season and, like Sunny, isn't afraid to poke fun at sex, race, and religion. Surprising to find a show like that on TBS.

Thanks... I'l add that to the list.
Too many damn shows out.
I also hear that Workaholics is like Sunny as well. I need to win the lottery, so I can just stay home and watch all these shows, dammit
