/ Boardwalk Empire - your thoughts?
It scores a creditable 8.7 on IMDB.
So, if you've seen it, please share your thoughts.
My mate loved it, i watched the first few episodes but really struggled to get into it.
If you're only downloading it instead of buying it, you might as well try it. If not, it's am easy delete
Another vote for tried to watch it - but didn't like it. Couldn't connect with any of the characters. There again I'm not keen on programs that try to glamourise gangsters, so it was always going to be a struggle for me to enjoy it.
It can be a little slow at times but it is enjoyable, I'd give it 7 out of 10. Breaking bad is superb if you haven't already!
You should watch more. It does the oposite of glamourise. Most characters dont come off well. It is interesting because it is based on a true time period and true characters.
Ok, guess I'll give it a go - it's only download, so nowt lost.
Breaking bad (all 5)
The Wire (All 3 times - yeah, I know... saddo)
Mad Men (Fairly bored by end of season 2)
Spartacus (actually, this was just porn! Loved it)
Six Feet Under - liked it, watched it with our lass
Sopranos - watched ages ago
Erm, ehat else?
Oh yeah, another one about a gangster moving to Norway - boresville
Have just downloaded Hunted - looks good in theory
Game of THrones - lasted three episodes before getting bored
Oh there was this other one about a dysfunctional rich family (American of course), Dad in prison - didn't even finish episode 2
Tell me about:
Dexter is pretty good. Although season 6 was a bit flat. Game of Thrones is worth persevering with.
Just started watching the 'west wing'. It's slick, but is well written.
Battlestar Galactica if you like your sci fi?

But thanks anyway - other comment duly noted :-)
Everyone keeps raving about Walking Dead and Trueblood as well.
Treme? From the writer of the Wire. Its got Bunk in it :)
I like boardwalk empire, main characters aren't always there for long..
I recommend Sons of Anarchy above every other show.
If you need something to replace Spartacus, once you've watched Sons, then the show for you is Californication.
If you fancy something a bit different after that try an Aussie show called Rake and a Kiwi show called The Almighty Johnsons (both are comedies). If you like the southern hemisphere humour, give Legit a try, just come out.
But definitely, before anything else, watch Sons Of Anarchy.
The Walking Dead - good clean zombie killin' fun
Sons of Anarchy? Is it as porn-soaked as Spartacus? I could watch at home but not on the train, I get way too embarrased.
I'll read and comment after meeting
Hmmm, have to leave it then I'm afraid! Thanks though
