Well here’s a few recommendations. If you have never experienced HBO series- Deadwood, Carnivale’, or Boardwalk Empire I am truly jealous you get to do it for the first time. (OZ, Six Feet Under, and the Wire are up there also). In fact I can count on one hand how many HBO series were actually bad. But those Five or six are the cream of the crop. (Sopranos & Band of Brothers need no mention).
Rescue Me, Dexter, Mad Men, Lost, Fargo, and Justified are all top shelf shows. Peaky Blinders, House of Cards, and Shameless are a must watch. Few underated shows are The Killing, Freaks & Geeks, OA, Revolution, Medium, Battlestar Galactica, and The Riches. Even if your not a western fan, make sure you go watch “Lonesome Dove”, probably the single greatest treat you can give your brain is watching Robert Duvall play Gus, with Peter Falk being a close second playing Columbo. People love it or hate it, but Frasier was probably best written series ever, sorry Seinfeld. American Horror Story, Twin Peaks, Downton Abby, and True Blood are great ones to watch with the wife/hubby.
I’m currently watching or catching up on - “The 100” (yes it’s a campy CW show, but surprisingly good), Vikings, Falling Skies, The Rookie, Under the Dome, and Hemlock Grove. Did watch the Tiger King last night because of all the hub-bub, yep it was a good watch. But enjoyed McMillions more. Anyway, I may just never leave the couch again.
