We watched the first episode of Shameless last night. Excellent pilot! I can see my wife and I cruising through all four seasons very quickly.

When you are done with that here is a suggestion no one has made yet. It's made for binge watching if you haven't seen it:

Sons of Anarchy.

Someone else also mentioned the Fargo TV series. I was expecting to hate it but it turned out to be pretty awesome.

If you do Deadwood make sure and use closed captioning.

And yeah Ray Donovan is worth a watch simply for Jon Voight if nothing else. He is fantastic in it.

I liked Monk just fine, though more so with the original female lead, but Monk ain't Perception and Perception ain't Monk.

I've been binge watching American Horror Story this month. Each season is totally different, so it stays fresh.

I've watched them all and really enjoy it. The quality of the acting is what sets it apart from a lot of other shows. Jessica Lange is simply phenomenal!

Ally McBeal is on Netflix. If you like quirky characters, this show is full of them.

The Wonder Years is also on Netflix. Although depending on the age of your kids you may want to watch that as a family.

Torchwood hasn't been mentioned; other than the last season it was very good.

Luther is/was excellent, as were many other BBC shows (I think there is a separate thread for those).

Oh, and since The Killing S4 is coming in a couple of days, the first 3 weren't bad (although S1+2 could have taken the cue from Broadchurch, which finished in 8 episodes).

We're halfway through season 2 of Shameless, and still going strong. What a crazy show! Frank Gallagher may very well be the most despicable character in the history of television.

My wife and I got in to Suits and most recently Royal Pains. White Collar is another good one for us, but it really depends on the type of shows you like.

Two seasons of Shameless down, two to go. Seasons 3 and 4 are available to stream, so I'll finally be able to take advantage of XFinity VOD on the TiVo.
On my own I've also been binge watching Terriers. I only have four episodes left. Too bad this one got cancelled so fast.

This will be the opportunity I take to start watching BB for the first time. I was going to start it on Netflix but I want to spread it out and not have to think about it, so I diaried it to get it on my recording schedule.

I've heard so much about this show being so great that I really look forward to it. Sundays? Yikes - everything is on Sundays. One of my Tivos is always cranking hard on Sundays. Will have to set it up on the other one.

Oh wow, I just saw that they are marathoning it. The way I initially understood it was that they were going to just show an ep each Sunday, from beginning to end.

There's also the original Shameless, 14 seasons available on free Hulu.

I loved Terriers and I don't know how much this is like Terriers, but Tim Minear who has been involved in writing, directing, producing Terriers, Firefly, Dollhouse, Wonderfalls, X-Files and more also was a big part of a show called The Inside with Rachel Nichols and Adam Baldwin.

The main reason I mention it is it's free for now at least at: http://crazybananapants1.tumblr.com/post/34004088480 Apparently it's a Hannibal like show that was cancelled, but I'm hoping to watch it when I get a chance.

I'll have to check it out! I've really enjoyed almost all of Tim Minear's shows.

Terriers is one the greatest ever "1 season and cancelled" shows. I still miss it.

We finished season 3 of Shameless and then ran into a road block. For some inexplicable reason, Showtime removed season 4 from Showtime Anytime. It was there just a few days ago, but now it's gone. Since the fourth season isn't out on Blu-ray yet, we were forced to pay $29 so we can stream it from Amazon.

Don't have too many quibbles with the grades you gave to shows I've watched... except this one is right out. Justified is the best of all the shows you've listed: Fargo is probably up there with it, but as a single 10-episode season comparison is apples and oranges.

On topic: We've been watching Misfits (BBC series) and think it's really great. We're just into season 2 though. Also the only legitimate place to get it that I know of is Hulu Plus: we have a free two-week subscription but I won't sign up for it once that's done since you still have to watch commercials; if I'm paying I don't want to see any commercials.

Warning: there's a good bit of nudity and sex and tons of swearing so if you're not comfortable with that give it a pass.

It must get better. I've heard nothing but great things from everyone who has seen it.

I thought the pilot was great.

It plays out pretty much same as pilot episode.

But do agree it doesn't move very fast.

Fargo moves a bit faster as it goes on.

My wife and I watched all of Luther over the weekend. I enjoyed it a fair amount. It make me think that London has a lot of serial killers.

I am a complete and utter idiot. Turns out the pilot didn't DVR for some reason and I started watching with episode 2. No wonder nothing made any sense. I think I'll try this again.

I'd say Fargo was one of the best show I've seen recently. Makes sense that you watched out of order if you thought it was slow

I was a little confused as to how you could think the first episode was slow... there was a LOT that happened there IIRC.
