    Oz is AMAZING, if you can handle male nudity. (heh heh)

    DAMAGES.

    i think it's been mentioned in this thread, but Damages is outstanding, especially season 1. but i have found all of them entertaining.

    just wrapping up season 4(?) with John Goodman and the Highstar story line. :up:

    After watching the story on David Kohan and Max Mutchnick on CBS Sunday Morning, I've set up a SP for Partners. I adored Michael Urie on Ugly Betty, so we'll see how it goes. YMMV.

    Here are some of the ones that my wife and I watch that haven't already been mentioned. We enjoyed a lot of the same shows that you've been watching.

    If you liked 24, I think you'd like Strike Back. Strike Back is in it's second season on Cinemax. It has a lot of action, some sex and nudity, and some (I think) pretty good acting.

    If you liked Lost, I'd recommend Fringe. It just started it's last season last Friday.

    Shameless, on Showtime, is also pretty good.

    My wife really liked The Killing, which had two seasons on AMC. Also on AMC is Hell on Wheels, which is good. She also likes The Borgias.

    Some others that have already mentioned are good too. Boardwalk Empire, Walking Dead, Homeland, Game of Thrones are all good. If you're interested in miniseries, Pillars of the Earth was good too.

    Where can I find Pillars of the Earth? Hulu plus? Netflix? AmP? I had it all set to record off EncoreHD last week only to find that EncoreHD doesn't exist anymore on my Time Warner tier. Also had a cablecard fiasco that warranted a call to TWC cablecard hotline for a hit on the box.

    Just learned that the sequel miniseries to Pillars of the Earth, World Without End, will be on the Reelz Network starting October 17th.

    The story takes place in the same setting of Kingsbridge, long after the events of Pillars of the Earth.

    I really liked The Wire. My favorite show of all time.


    Is there a way I can watch Game of Thrones for free?

    Visit a friend who has HBO GO? Check out the DVDs from the library?

    Only season one is available currently on DVD. Season two won't come out till March, which is rather unfortunate. So if you get hooked, you either subscribe to hbo, wait 6 months, or get the video by less savoury means.

    Well, I watched S1 on HBO as it aired, got hooked, and then had to wait 9 months. Life is sometimes hard.

    Thanks to this thread I am now hooked on Homeland. I am watching season one - can't stop watching. I loved Damian Lewis in Life and am glad that this was available on Amazon now.
