Agree with the Shield watchers. PRobably the most underrated show out there. never gets its name thrown in with the all time greats when it might be #1 of this TV Boom era. Last time I looked it up out of curiosity it wasn't on Netflix or Hulu though, I don't know why, but that's probably killing it's popularity.

I guarantee you've "literally" seen at least 1 second of the Sopranos in some format. And probably the Wire.


You really underestimate how little I care about shows like this. I've probably seen the ending of The Sopranos because it was the fade to black thing that pissed everyone off but I can guarantee that I've never seen a second of The Wire.

Cards' fans wear jorts.

How does the Wire compare to The Shield? Being a Sheild fan, I was told by several people I would also like the Wire...

I've never seen a second of The Wire. I've probably seen a second of Soprano's when I happened to walk through a room and Entertainment Tonight was on or something and they had a clip. But if I've seen The Wire I don't remember it. Didn't watch either show. Don't really watch most big shows, though I've gotten a bit more into them the last couple years. Handmaid's Tale is excellent.

Most HBO/Showtime stuff I've never seen.

The Wire is arguably the best TV show ever. It's on most critics top five lists of best all time.

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

I've always heard it's great but just never got around to it. If it were on Netflix I would have watched it by now. I just have minimal energy for seeking out shows and basically need them dropped off for me.

Haven't seen it mentioned yet so, Twin Peaks.

First two seasons are on Netflix currently. The first season might be one of the greatest seasons of television ever. Second season gets a little uneven since Lynch kinda checked out for awhile after the network made him reveal the killer, but he came back at the end & closed things out perfectly to set things up for...

Twin Peaks: The Return, which I hesitate to even call TV. It's more like an 18 hour film that was split into episodes out of necessity. Even though it's been almost two years since it aired, it still manages to work it's way into my head with regularity.

I haven't seen the HBO prison drama, OZ, mentioned anyplace yet. That show was must see for me back in the day...

Others that deserve some recognition imo:

Deadwood: Oh how I wish they had given this one more time...
Fargo
Entourage : A guy show, but found it entertaining as hell.
The League
Eastbound & Down
Mad Men
NYPD Blue

I really thought season 1 of Homeland on Showtime was amazing television. I stuck around and watched the next few seasons, which were good but decreasingly so year by year. They never matched season 1. Season 1 is worth a stand alone viewing IMO, a self-contained story that doesn't require you to keep watching subsequent seasons. Utterly gripping edge of your seat stuff.

I'm also a sucker for LOST, that's a pretty polarizing show though. Some people had issues with how it ended. During its regular airing I remember being a little confused by the ending and what it meant, but I rewatched all 6 seasons a year or so ago and binge watching it really cemented it for me as one of the great shows. The twists and turns and reveals were as good as any show. I wish I could watch it again for the first time.

I feel the same about House of Cards. The first season was incredible and they've just gone downhill since then. I didn't even watch last season. I guess you could say the same about True Detective. Season one was an all timer, season two really stink and season three was pretty good.

Agree on House of Cards, I only watched two or three seasons but that first season was really good.

I stuck with House of Cards. First season was definitely the high point.

House of Cards lost me at the threesome with the body guard. One of the worst *** moments I've ever watched in TV. I kept going, but never finished the last season without Spacey.

Just watched 'The Expanse'. That was the best show I've seen in a long time. Every season builds on the next. Characters and narrative are great. Highly recommend.

I'll second that, though everything makes a lot more sense on a second viewing.

Ditto on all three. I've seen every season of HoC, Homeland, and True Detective. Sure, 1st season or two is always the best for almost any series, but I still think the last season of Homeland is better than anything on network TV.

I hated season 2 of True Detective but season 3 wasn't bad. I also loved the Expanse one of the better Scifi shows.

I also liked the show Happy not sure why but I liked it.
