I need a new show

iev watched 24, Lost, Prison Break, Drive, Desperate Housewives, One Tree Hill...are there any other good dramas i might like?

And not heroes or Smallville, i want nothing that has people with magic powers etc. Just believable yet unbelievable drama

What About Brian and Sleeper Cell. Though i havent seen Sleeper Cell season 2 yet.

re: I need a new show

what are they about 85?

i also wouldnt mind a good comedy. Altho nothing like Ugly Betty, thats pure shitt. More Two And A Half Men standard

re: I need a new show

it was called runaway. looked quite good, but just found this...

"The CW cancelled Runaway on October 18, 2006, a mere four weeks following its debut. Runaway holds the unfortunate distinction of being the first show to be cancelled on the new network. The show never found an audience which resulted in it being the show which had the lowest in ratings in all 5 major broadcast networks and lower than some programs on the Spanish only speaking channels like Univision and Telemundo."


so maybe not...

re: I need a new show

What About Brian is a sort of grown up OC, but not. Cant explain it but i really like it, about 7 friends, 3 of them couples and the other (Brian) single. Its nothing new and original granted but it develops its characters well and you give a damn about them. Good tv.

Sleeper Cell season 1 was a superb girtty terrorism type show. A "sleeper cell" of terrorists plotting in the US and an undercover agent within the cell trying to foil it. Wasnt over the top or predictable, was very low key but dramatic at the same time. Was 0nly about 8 episodes but was great tv. Season 2 is on FX now, but i havent got round to watching them.

Comedy wise im not sure to be honest.

re: I need a new show

ANE, perhaps Jericho? Has just been reprieved from being cancelled too. Is about a town who notice a nuclear explosion in a nearby city and then have to piece together just how BIG the problem is.

I liked Sleeper Cell, there's a second series? Woah!

A_New_Era Posted on 14/6 23:43
re: I need a new show

in fairness, Drive was cancelled after 4 episodes and i thought it was brilliant

Boro85 Posted on 14/6 23:43
re: I need a new show

Jericho ill second, im watching that at the moment and enjoying it. Not as gripping as some but its still good tv.

Yeah trod, the second season of Sleeper Cell started about a month ago. Theyre all backlogged on my Sky+ box.

re: I need a new show

my lad watched 10 hours of heroes straight yesterday - am afraidaI will have to give it a go . He got me hooked on 24 - here we go again .

Boro85 Posted on 14/6 23:47
re: I need a new show

Any idea when it starts on bbc2?

Mattyk50 Posted on 14/6 23:47
re: I need a new show

im a bit scared of getting into heroes after the amount of brainpower ive used thinking about lost

re: I need a new show

I take it you've seen The Sopranos?

dean_glovers_studs Posted on 14/6 23:51
re: I need a new show

The Wire is apparently excellent and up to its fourth series so you'll have plenty to watch.

however, I'm stillwaiting for WilmslowRed to pass it on to me so I wouldnt know....

trodbitch Posted on 14/6 23:53
re: I need a new show

Heroes isn't as deliberately head-fooking as lost. It actually has a start, middle and end! It tells a story, whereas Lost is a bit of a drug-dealer - they get you hooked, never give you more than you need but you always go back.

I have never seen a single episode of Sopranos. There. I've said it.

The problem is, I'd download them and die from too much tv as there's about 6 series?

Mattyk50 Posted on 14/6 23:54
re: I need a new show

cool, how much heroes do i have to catch up on then?

might get them downloading tonight and have a heroes night in 2mor night!

trodbitch Posted on 14/6 23:57
re: I need a new show

23 episodes!

Mattyk50 Posted on 14/6 23:57
re: I need a new show

fooking hell!

maybe spread them over a few nights then!

trodbitch Posted on 14/6 23:59
re: I need a new show

Once you start watching them, you'll be glad you don't have to wait a week for the next episode.

re: I need a new show

If you are interested world war two try Band of Brothers
'Old hat', I know but quality never disappoints

MartonBoroFan Posted on 15/6 0:03
re: I need a new show

Without a doubt, Heroes.

trodbitch Posted on 15/6 0:08
re: I need a new show

Band of Brothers seconded here. It might be 'old' but the fact it is set in that era means it isn't dated at all.

Robbo_89 Posted on 15/6 0:12
re: I need a new show

Rescue me on sky 1 is quality, also the sopranoes.

JSawyers200 Posted on 15/6 0:25
re: I need a new show

If you are into The Terminator and stuff like that then a new show from the US is due here soon called "The Sarah Connor Chronicles".

Looks pretty good from what I have seen. $8m per episode alledgedly.

A_New_Era Posted on 15/6 8:02
re: I need a new show

ive decided on jericho and have season 1 downloading

everyones daring me to watch heroes, i may take the plunge if jericho is unsuccessful

Sleaford_Socialite Posted on 15/6 9:34
re: I need a new show

Veronica Mars.

Tom_Fun Posted on 15/6 9:40
re: I need a new show

I'll 'third' Band Of Brothers. Quite simply the greatest TV series ever made. The concentration camp episode is one of the most upsetting pieces of TV or film I've ever seen.

WilmslowRed Posted on 15/6 9:44
re: I need a new show

The Wire IS excellent, best thing on TV.

DGS's - you only borrowed the Series One boxset for 6 months last year without watching it, as soon as you get it back from Taff you'll be hooked.

bororeddaz Posted on 15/6 9:46
re: I need a new show

Esky, do you have a women?

YodaTheCoder Posted on 15/6 9:49
re: I need a new show

Las Vegas.

Veronica Mars rocks BTW!

re: I need a new show

bororeddaz - thats abit of a grey area atm

kazzaxxx Posted on 15/6 10:17
re: I need a new show

agree with band of brothers, also roots

Sleaford_Socialite Posted on 15/6 10:19
re: I need a new show

I love Veronica.

Big_Shot Posted on 15/6 10:19
re: I need a new show

Wilmslow Red is correct, The Wire is the best thing on TV. FX will soon be showing it again right from series 1.

Vinny_Garstroke Posted on 15/6 10:19
re: I need a new show

My name is Earl.

Or go retro and watch the complete series of 'V'.

Sleaford_Socialite Posted on 15/6 10:21
re: I need a new show

And series two has a Kevin Smith cameo in it.

Edit: Veronica, not Earl.
