So far so good. Both very good productions. Watch the pilot eps then take it from there.

Anyone else have recommendations?

Awake looks really good!

I can also highly recommend New Girl (though it started last year I think). Funniest show I have seen in a long time.

Girls (comedy) from HBO is meant to be good. It's had the shit hyped out of it, and there are some indifferent reviews but it's meant to be good. Produced by Judd Apatow.

http://www.hbo.com/girls/index.html

Veep (comedy) also by HBO is another that has got some pretty good write-ups. Julia Louis-Dreyfus plays a Vice President trying to make her role more important. It's by Armando Iannucci who made In The Thick Of It, and, In The Loop.

http://www.hbo.com/veep/index.html

The Newsroom again by HBO (there's a pattern here innit) which is a look behind the scenes of the nightly news. Created by Aaron Sorkin and starring Jeff Daniels and Sam Waterston. Out in the States in June.

http://www.hbo.com/veep/index.html#/the-newsroom

Season 5 of Beaking Bad is due this year. Obviously Mad Men S5 has already begun.

Hell On Wheels by AMC (makers of Breaking Bad and Mad Men) is supposed to be good but I haven't started on it yet. The Killing (remake of the Danish crime drama) is up to S2 I think also.

Community S3 has started Stateside but has got indifferent reviews.

Treme S3 should be starting soonish too.

Boardwalk Empire S3 soon.

Enlightened starring Laura Dern (HBO) isn't bad either. It's about a woman who gets fired from her job, has a break down and becomes enlightened after going through a spiritual course and then transforms into a passive aggressive.

Bored to Death is up to S4 I think.

That'll do me.

Scandal:



From the creator and executive producers of Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice comes a drama revolving around the life and work of a professional crisis manager and her dysfunctional staff.

A former media relations consultant to the President, Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) dedicates her life to protecting and defending the public images of our nation's elite. After leaving the White House, the power consultant opened her own firm, hoping to start a new chapter -- both professionally and personally -- but she can't seem to completely cut ties with her past. Slowly it becomes apparent that her staff, who specialize in fixing the lives of other people, can't quite fix the ones closest at hand -- their own.

Bored to Death has been canned. Aint coming back. Crying shame IMO.

Cannot wait for Treme or Boardwalk Empire, LOVE both these shows.

Checked out the first ep of Touch tonight and gotta say I thought it was pretty promising. Will continue to watch this one.

after reading this i watched about 6 eps last night - decent, funny enough to keep you coming back for more

have always liked the star of the show in other stuff (don't know her name) and i think this show has made me fall in love with her

the humor reminds me of Workaholics (which also starts again soon) - but not as great as it has the chick factor in it, workaholics is straight up guy jokes for the most part

For those who liked Gossip Girl and a little bit of Heroes, The Secret Circle is easy to watch, a bit predictable. But I am hooked. Mostly because of the wants on it.

Zooey Deschanel is her name. I had a crush on her before but now I am absolutely in love with her. And I can relate to the oddball character she's playing which makes it even better (she sings her words, I talk in song lyrics!).
The show gets better as the season progresses. It gets much funnier in my opinion.

Yep. The pilot is great, then next couple of eps are not as solid, but

once you realize that the stories/characters they've gone through in the past are revisited/further explored it adds that extra needed layer

Quite enjoyed The River. Think Lost meets Apocalypse Now meets Blair Witch. Acting could be better but some genuinely scary moments.

GCB is another good one that has started recently. It's based on a book called Good Christian Bitches but as it's America they changed it to Good Christian Belles

Media Player
GCB (Good Christian Belles) - ABC Trailer - YouTube

The series is based on the book Good Christian Bitches by Kim Gatlin. From the creator of hit movies Robert Harling (Steel Magnolias, Soapdish, The First Wives Club) and producer Darren Star (Sex and the City).

The series stars Leslie Bibb, Kristin Chenoweth, Jennifer Aspen, Miriam Shor, Marisol Nichols and Annie Potts as Gigi Stopper.

Amanda Vaughn (Leslie Bibb), once the ultimate high school "mean girl," is forced to return home in disgrace after her marriage ends in scandal. Amanda is nothing like the girl she was 20 years ago, but as her old classmates reacquaint themselves with the new Amanda, will her home town welcome her with open arms or seek revenge? No one in this town is a saint, but that doesn't mean they can't have a heart. As Amanda and her teenage kids try to adjust to their new lives, the ladies from her past alternate between sympathy and scheming.



Some of the guys in it are dreamy too

i'm quite enjoying girls. it's not spectacular, but it's the first thing to look at 21st century tween life from a realistic perspective. it's oddly quirky too, which helps.

Just started this last night. So good. Really wish we got to find out how it was done. You should check out a guy called dynamo on youtube. He is no doubt 100% wizard.

If anyone is in to anime, the x-men/iron man/wolverine/blade anime series' are pretty decent.

^ whut? It's nothing remotely like Sex & The City

Girls is good, Judd Apatow production, if anyone didn't realise...and it's pretty damn good!

Don't Trust The Bitch in Apartment 23 also quite good, James Van Der Beek as himself is classic.

Have only seen the first 2 eps of Girls: plenty of potential but not as funny as I thought it was going to be. Maybe that's deliberate. The dudes are total drips. It looks sharp and is directed at a good pace but yeah, hopefully it gets funnier.

Dunham is only 25 and is the writer, director, and producer of the show as well as the main actor. Fucking hell.

Yeah, I wouldn't really say it gets much funnier, it's more than dry/awkward/weird humor, without being bust a gut funny, but it's quite good still...there's some hella weird sex scenes/interactions with Dunham and the guy she's shagging
