adding to my list of 'seens' ..... that was a great show tho.

Matrix0507 Jan 3, 2007 12:25 PM

Band of Brothers was made for TV. Watched all 10 eps back to back twice on diff days.

Edit: Intervention is one of the best shows on television right now. There is no plot line, just addicts thinking they are doing a show on addiction then being confronted with an intervention.

Edit 2: wow, I can't believe nobody mentioned The Office (US version) yet <--frickin fantastic

Hannibal Lecter Jan 3, 2007 12:27 PM

Entourage
The Wire
Prison Break

Dexter would be my first suggestion in reply to the topic (AWESOME series), but you're already a fan :D

The 4400 is another series i'd recommend for watching back-to-back.. awesome storyline and character development :)

It picks up dont worry, well worth your time :D

House....

Ignore the promos... watch an ep and you will be hooked... it not a normal medical drama.. you will grow to love House's character...

:D
there're 3 seasons of it so far (currently on hold while they work on season 4).. the first two seasons are abit hard to "acquire" for watching now, but they're released on dvd, so probably rent-able if you can't find it online

It's not just a drama, theres some good comedy in there too. And you can't go by the promo's, they don't do it justice - when House first aired I saw a promo and thought :bleh: but when it won an award, I thought it worth checking out... now I have every episode in HDTV widescreen :)* :yes:

Soulkrusha Jan 3, 2007 01:36 PM

you guys are beating deadwhores on the House thing... I'm simply not interested and short of putting a gun to my head there's nothing gunna change my mind on that one..... well, i guess if they added hardcore lezbo prOn to each episode I'd prolly watch :D

thanks for the effort tho ;)

You could always watch House ;)







Edit: I watched Juice last night and the little hoodie that was Tupac's friend grew up to be the black doctor in House! haha

sittal Jan 3, 2007 01:49 PM

another vote for house, do it!
ever see Rome? quite good except for the occasional wang. but thar be womansches as well

Blasphemer Jan 3, 2007 01:53 PM

I know its only one series of it, but i recommend "Life on Mars" UK show, great programme. I sat and watched the whole series in one day and can't wait for series 2.

SpeeDC Jan 3, 2007 01:58 PM

lol, No mentions of Nip/Tuck?

It's a damn addictive show that I think you really have to start watching to get into it. From what I heard/saw previews of I wasn't interested in it. Then I caught an episode and was pretty much hooked. Great show.
