    I would like to issue major major thanks to:

    Taff, Big Jim, Osiris(Begrudingly cuz he's a cunt), PCC

    Also additional thanks to:

    Juices, Osiris(Both while gritting my teeth)


    The former for The Shield, the latter for Sopranos(although I was gonna watch that eventually). It took me just over one year to watch the whole series of The Shield. I stopped watching it 3 or 4 times as to be honest, it was so good I didn't want it to end. During one of those breaks was when I watched every episode of The Sopranos. It actually took me two weeks to go from the 2nd last episode of The Shield to the last - simply because I couldn't bear it ending.

    This was all from my original thread: What TV Series Should I Go Through Next?

    Both shows were absolutely awesome. I'd say I enjoyed The Shield more, but really they are both different beasts and it's unfair to compare the two. Either way, both were AMAZING fucking shows.

    And now, having finished The Shield tonight, I'm ready for something new.

    I'm open for anything. Whatever you guys recommend, that's what I'll go for. I'm definitely leaning towards The Wire or Sons of Anarchy, but just like with The Shield - I'll put my complete trust in NPP.

    So - WTF should I watch next?

    Have you watched The Wire or Mad Men? If you're looking for a drama do those.

    Gonna guess you won't bother with Lost but gets my highest recommendation. So does The Wire, Med Men below those two.

    Osiris knows what's up.

    Sons Of Anarchy isn't really all that great. Unless you really believe that there are good bikers out there.

    The Wire is really good. I've also enjoyed Deadwood and Rome.

    The Wire's just hard to describe or promote, something you just gotta watch.

    It's more than just a police show, it's a life show.

    I thought he said that him and Janise are both tackling Lost awhile back.

    If you haven't seen it already, then I recommend Sports Night. Sports Night plays alright in bite sized pieces, but I found it really enjoyable as a solid chunk. You have to slog through the early ones with the laugh track, but they catch their stride before too overly long.

    I can't think of much else. I don't watch a lot of TV. Did you see Spaced? I would guess so, but if not, it's another show that works best in a large chunk.
    Typos are very important to all written form. It gives the reader something to look for so they aren't distracted by the total lack of content in your post.

    I'm partway thru Deadwood, enjoyable with lots o' cheap whore tits and vulgarity.

    I'd recommend Veronica Mars along with Lost.

    The Wire or 24, you fucking poof.

    Or Only Fools And Horses, if only to see the racism in "the nation's show" before it was unacceptable on TV.

    I would recommend LOST only if you're ready to second guess everything you will ever think about the show at every second.

    The Wire gets my vote.... might as well wait for this season of Lost to end so the series is over before you start hitting the dvds so you aren't waiting 8 months for the last season.

    WATCH THE WIRE YOU BASTARD. You're just doing this to fuck with everyone every few months.

    You can't really promote or even describe the Wire to make it interesting, you just have to watch it. The fact all of us that hate each other are saying to watch it should say something.

    PS - I'm starting the Sopranos myself. Watched the first couple years ago and thought "bleh" but I'm giving it a second chance and I'm almost through the first season.

    All this talk and thinking about Sports Night makes me want to watch it again, and WT has it right on the money. Like Arrested Development, Sports Night is a good watch especially when you watch a bunch in a row

    Early Becker is fantastic, but I lost interest a bit after Reggie left and that other lady took over the diner.

    Deadwood like a motherfucker. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED that show. Seriously.

    Plus it's only 3 seasons - so you'll be able to get through it relatively quickly.

    Alright, The Wire seems to be the general consensus so that's what I'll go with. Potentially Deadwood next, although I may try Sons of Anarchy(I used to "roll", as the cool kids say, with a lot of members of the Montreal based biker gang Rock Machine, so I do know a lot of good bikers).

    TTG - Agree with you about Becker, but looking more for a serious show. For strictly comedy once I finish Mad About You I'm going with Arrested Development and Malcolm in the Middle.

    Finally - Lost. You guys really think I'd like that show? Because it'd be really cool if I got into it - Janise fucking LOVES it - all time favourite show - I arrive home from the UK on the night that Lost returns, and she won't even pick me up at the airport even though I arrive home like an hour before it starts, just in case of traffic(and it's a 20 minute fucking drive!). And like she'd shit herself with joy if I got into it.

    But I dunno. I did give it a try initially, and was bored within the first episode. And from what I understand a lot of fucked up shit happens on itt hat i dunno if I'd be into - but who knows. Basically if I watched Lost, how many episodes should I watch before I would know if I'm going to like the show or not?

    I'm with Janise. Unless there was a life or death situation somewhere I'm not getting bothered at all at 9 on Tuesday.

    I don't know how long I'd say you'd have to watch it. At least half of season 1 if not all. But honestly by maybe 3 eps in (4 "hours" since the pilot is 2 parts) I was hooked and didn't slow down watching at all.

    Scots, you'll have a new favorite faggot TV character in history. Yes, even better than Sean Hayes character in Will & Grace!

    He's so fucking badass that even NBA players were quoted as saying they don't even care if he's care because he's such a fucking badass. And they have IQs of 50.
