    Good shows worth watching?

    Well i just recently finished Orange is The New Black on Netflix and i have to say, i really enjoyed the show and cannot wait for the next season! However, i find myself looking for something else to watch and i figured i could be pointed towards some good shows.
    I am currently watching:
    -The Strain
    -The Leftovers (Season Finale TONIGHT!!!)
    I really enjoy these shows as well. I find The Strain constantly keeping me on the edge of my seat however some parts are not well planned and i expect something to happen and it does. Now, The Leftovers keeps me wondering what the hell is going on and keeps me entertained the entire time because i never really know whats going to happen.
    Shows i have watched and LOVED:
    -The Walking Dead (best show ever)
    -Game of Thrones (very entertaining and comes in a close second after TWD)
    -Breaking Bad

    Anything similar would be awesome. Something on Netflix would be even better for me. Any recommendations would be great. Another fantasy/medieval/bad-cop kind of thing would be appreciated.

    Penny Dreadful is good.

    I started to watch the Wire but it has not really kept my interest. Instead I am watching Suits which is highly entertaining. Has a nice mad men touch and the two main characters have a cool mentor relationship. Gabriel Macht looks like Jason Segel's older brother

    I would recommend Vikings to you! And for "bad" cops True Detective.

    If you like Breaking Bad, maybe you'd like Sons of Anarchy (last season starts this Tuesday). If you like TWD, maybe you'd like Falling Skies, though to be honest, it gets kinda slow to a certain point, but that's imo. And if you like Game of Thrones, check out Vikings, one of my favorite shows.

    24, Prison Break, Chuck, Power, Scrubs, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Undateable, Crisis, The Blacklist, Hostages, Person of Interest, Hawaii Five-O (2010), Homeland are a few that come to mind.

    It all depends on what kind of TV shows are you into.

    I've watched like 40 TV shows so far. Currently watching Covert Affairs.

    Supernatural is a pretty good show, I think 8 seasons are on NetFlix. 24 is another good option, 1-8 are on there. Lost is on Netflix, but that could become a love/hate thing since it seems to polarize its fan base. Warehouse 13 is another good show but they only have up to season 3 on Netflix so far, hopefully they'll add the rest soon. Star Wars: The Clone Wars cartoon is on there now if your into animated.

    Oh I forgot Farscape if you like good scifi, its one of the best shows in the last 10+ years in my opinion.

    Lost is a pretty good show. It should keep you guessing a lot. Just don't let anyone spoil the ending for you!

    This is true. I was pretty dumbfounded the entire series. Even at the very end my response was "what the fuck..." but I loved it all. Great show.
    Get a grip man! It's CHEESE!

    Being critical is a burden which some people loves to bear.

    Have to agree, one of my all time favorite sci fi epics, I just wish it had been allowed to run its proper course

    I've started watching Battlestar Galactica, having thought of it for years as nothing more then a terrible Star Trek rip off, but it's actually pretty good. Some parts are frustrating and annoying, and some episodes can be rather dull, but overall it's worth a watch.

    TV show you must see? I really don't watch much TV, but the TV shows that stand above the rest (for me) are...

    The Sopranos.
    Only Fools and Horses. (Very British - possibly not enjoyable oversees because you'd probably not understand the jokes)
    Band of Brothers.
    Seinfeld.
    Curb you enthusiasm.
    The Office. (The Original)

    As I said, I don't watch many TV shows, I haven't seen breaking bad, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones... etc.
    Lets all go to the Blizz-store, Lets all go to the Blizz-store, Lets all go to the Blizz-store to buy ourselves some treats. Delicious things for geeks, the Pixels can't be beat. The Achievement points are just dandy, them sparkling mounts are quite handy. So Lets all go to the Blizz-store and buy ourselves a treat.
