I started a few & have to say I loved these:
Sons of Anarchy
Game of Thrones
Walking Dead

I am starting Sherlock & it looks interesting. Next is probably Boardwalk Empire.

sons of anarchy is terrible show.

awful acting. a plot that keeps twisting for no reason at all.

I have watched the entire show a waste time.

not even comparable to breaking bad.

Of course it is not comparable to breaking bad but I disagree with the acting part. The story is kind of stupid as these people risk their lives every day yet they are broke & gain nothing by putting their lives on the line. However I must say it was entertaining. From the series I saw I would put them in this order:
Breaking bad
Game of Thrones
Walking Dead
House of Cards
Dexter
Sons of Anarchy

Sons of Anarchy is ok, I am season 6 now. In the first episode Sons have bloody encounter with Persian tortour Porn movies makers. LOL and there is the reference to Iranian vs Persian.

There's very critically acclaimed Anglo-Irish series which is storming the UK called Mrs. Brown's Boys

The writing is outstanding (think of Joyce mixed with Chaucer) and the acting is outstanding.

If you like your TV cerebral and intellectual, then definitely check it out.

try to get into house of cards again.. it's really good..have you watched homeland yet?and also newsroom (they actually hired investigative journalists for this at a time when CNN let go of the investigative journalists they had.. so they take their facts more seriously than the news channels and for me being factual makes it more interesting but it's really well made as well)
I just started, watched the first episode, have to catch up 2 seasons.

Gomorrah. An italian serial based on Roberto Savianos book. Its a heck of a serial and real tough actually. Its the story of a family deeply involved in the famous Camorra mafia group from Napoli. The book was so close to reality that the author and his family had to be taken under police protection othewise the Camorra clan wouldnt let any of them alive. If you are confused if the spoken language is really italian, then you are right. Its italian but its neapolitano italian which is really hard to understand even for other italians. Its something so hard to understand that some part of it had to be attached with a subtitle in proper italian to make rest of italy understand it too.

This is the first episode with english subtitle

I can't remember where they had that above song but I think it was while they were cooking. This one was cool too.

I have started watching gotham, 12 monkeys, and helix and the strain was nice as well. Revenge is not a chick flick it has alot of action. Salam was getting bad so I stopped watching. Dont watch that anymore.

All Netflix original series are good:
House of cards
Lilyhammer
Marco Polo
Orange is the new black
Arrested Development
Haven't seen the rest I saw AD in the past, not much of a fan tel you the truth. I'll try House of Cards. I just have like no time and if I have any free time after work, martial arts, teaching piano and playing some fifa, then I will watch TV or if there is a good game on I"ll watch.
