Hi

Ok so we all work hard so when we get home we like to put our feet up, let our hair down (sorry Brad) and hopefully avoid endless repeats on the TV! So it is very refreshing to see something new that is on terrestial television. Homeland has the makings of being a very good series.

Compelling US thriller starring Claire Danes and Damian Lewis. An American soldier left for dead in Iraq is rescued after years in captivity - but can the returning hero's story be trusted? You can catch it on 4OD before the second episode this Sunday.

Other things for your consideration I would say The West Wing and The Wire (obviously), Dexter, Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire (if you like Sopranos), Game of Thrones (if you like Lord of the Rings type things), Deadwood, Justified, The Walking Dead, Greys Anatomy (if you like ER and have a fiancee who got the boxset for her Christmas!).

Comedy wise 30 Rock, Arrested Development, Community, Frasier, Seinfeld, The American Office, Entourage

Any other suggestions would be appreciated we all end up on a train or in a hotel room struggling to amuse ourselves. Sons of Anarchy, Bored to Death, Sherlock and Mad Men all look good but not got round to them.

Thanks

Graeme

I thought it was and is really good - mind you I havent read the books that it based on yet.

On the subject of zombies, there is a rumour that there is to be another Zombie based TV series soon. and Hollywood appear to be a great job of buggering up World War Z

The US Office and 24 are favs here.

My faves are The West Wing, House MD and Lost. I did get quite sucked in with Lost and 'lost' hours of my life I'll never get back again!

Mmm I see what you mean with Walking Dead, I thought it was ok, not seen second series.

Emma, Lost really did lose the plot but I stuck it out and can not account for a month of my life.

Smaller series with 12ep has to be the way forward.

Oh, speaking of which The Shield, very good show and you'll get it dirt cheap.

The Shield, House, Breaking Bad and Dexter are programs I have never watched but would like to. When I watch things like this I need to watch them from the very start as I hate jumping in in the middle.

If you havent seen Mad Dogs or The Take on Sky 1, both are worth a watch.

If you want a laugh then Inbetweeners has to be worth buying as well

Band of Brothers seems very good though just started it and definitely recommend Dexter, Mad Men, 24 and Prison Break.

For something a bit different, but very good with proper laugh out loud moments try " How Do you want me?", comedy/drama from about 20 years ago. Complete series here for £5 inc free delivery - http://www.play.com/DVD/DVD/4-/1009043/How_Do_You_Want_Me_Complete_Series_1_2/Product.html

I quite like White Collar, it reminds me of the Fugitive in places, but the story lines are interesting enough.

And don't forget that there are often series on the Radio (especially R4 and R5). I usually find these better than the television because I get to imagine what the characters and scenes look like. Also, for those car journeys, get into a good audio book.

We started watching Dexter a couple of months ago (we hadn't seen it before) and have now watched seasons 1-3 with season 4 on its way to our house. We watched season 3 in just over two nights. So addictive. A must see.

I agree 100% with the first post. The Wire. Once I'd finished the The Wire, I'd watch it again!

Just bought The Mrs Bradley Mysteries and The Avengers Season 4. By an amazing coincidence Diana Rigg is in both of them.
