I'd add Lillehammer, and Orange is the New Black, both on netflix.
Shameless - the original UK version.
Eleven season over nine years with a total of 139 episodes.
Sleepy Hollow is fun. The leads have great chemistry. Definitely check it out.
Thanks for all the feedback, guys! I also appreciate the suggestions that were not on my original list. Some of them I've watched, and others I haven't. I completely forgot about The Americans. I've heard it's really good.
Since my wife doesn't particularly care for anything that is sci-fi, fantasy or horror themed, I tend to watch those shows on my own. She's not 100% against sci-fi. We watched Lost together, but she would never watch something like BSG, which I consider more hardcore sci-fi.
I'm surprised that not a single person recommended Episodes. I have a friend who absolutely raves about it!
This is on my short list of shows to watch in the near future. Now that it's on Amazon Prime streaming, I can stream it with my Roku.
I binge watched the first three seasons right before season 4 began. Awesome show!
We watched a couple episodes of The Good Wife, but couldn't get into it. We should probably give it another go. Unfortunately, my wife accidentally came across a huge spoiler about it. I don't know what it is, but it sucks that she will have that knowledge from the very beginning.
We also tried to get into The Newsroom and couldn't. Some Sorkin show immediately click for me (The West Wing), while others don't.
Another show I will most likely watch on my own. My friend has been trying to get me to watch it ever since it first aired.
Loved Band of Brothers, The Shield and Orphan Black (although the first season was much better than the second). I haven't seen any of the others. A couple people have recommended Boss to me. Whenever I think of Boss, I also think of Damages for some reason, another show I've always been curious about.
Veronica Mars is by far one of our favorite shows of all time. We also love Homeland, although each subsequent season has gone down in quality. Most of the other shows on your list I watch without my wife. I've seen every episode of The Walking Dead, Dexter, Dollhouse and BSG.
I've never even heard of this show. What's the general concept?
We are huge OITNB fans! What is Lillhammer about?
I watched the first 44 episodes in 10 days!
It was painful having to go week to week once caught up.
(I just realized it was 44 episodes and not 34 like I'd said previously. Wow.)
Wow! That's some serious TV watching!
My wife was out of the country. Worked out pretty well for both of us.
It's about a NY mobster that goes into witness protection and when they ask him where he wants to live he says "Lillehammer, I saw it in the Olympics, beautiful place."
It's mostly a comedy with some violence. The mobster is played by Steven Van Zandt, he was on the Sopranos, though this show has no connection to the Sopranos, Steven is playing basically the same kinda guy he did on the Sopranos.
Apparently the name of the show is spelled Lilyhammer, hunh...
I like Justified a lot. Timothy Olyphant is one of the main reasons I want to watch Deadwood. I watched the first season of The Killing, but got kind of bored and didn't continue beyond that. I found it to be one of the most excruciatingly slow shows I've ever seen. Slow isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I tend to watch a lot of TV late at night, and I kept falling asleep during it.
Based on what you've said so far, excluding any shows not mentioned, I'd watch these:
Absolute Must Watch
Six Feet Under
Masters of Sex
Have you seen?
Fargo (TV Series)
Friday Night Lights
I also enjoyed the first season of The Bridge and Defiance.
