What are you watching now and what has been your favourite drama series so far? (I don't really watch comedy, so...)
Until 3 or 4 years ago when I got real ill I hardly watched any TV apart from sport, or watched a movie or read a book. It was only when I had to spend months pretty much imobile that changed.
I'm taking a bit of a scattergun approach and trying a bit of everything to see what I like so I'm open to any suggestions.
Some dramas/sci-fi I've enjoyed recently (in some rough order or preference):
Dexter, Luther, Firefly, Ashes to Ashes, Spooks, Burn Notice, White Collar.
... seeing as I have pretty much
I have a 4Tb Synology NAS for similar and it's just about the best bit of kit I've ever bought. I love the thing. Although I buy boxsets of stuff I find I like it's still easier to source them elsewhere, stick them on the NAS and stick the DVD's in a cupboard.
There hasn't been another American show yet that lives up to Twin Peaks season 1.
Possibly the best bit of TV I've ever seen. I try and forget about the later episodes
Anyway, 24 might be pretty mindless, especially in the later seasons but it's still fun. Great action for a TV show.
You know what, I got a huge boxset of 24 and then for some reason couldn't motivate myself to watch a story that lasted 24 x 1hr episodes (and yes given the premise of the show I realise how stupid that sounds
). I also have Band of Brothers boxset unopened too.
Actually I'm going to dig 24 out and give it a go.
I would also recommend Terminator SCC, but the ending does nothing but piss me off. Everything else in recent years has either started off great and gone to shit or started off great and got canceled.
I briefly tried Terminator SCC and couldn't get into it. Likewise I tried the latest Stargate and lost interest in that too.
The one advantage of coming to all these series late is I can avoid the ones that got cancelled and thus never reached a satisfactory conclusion.
