Basically I the last few years I've been watching lots of shows, but now all of a sudden I feel as if all great dramas as drying up Sopranos, the wire, Lost even 24. Can anyone reccomend a good series to get into? I'm off work as my appendix burst recently and bed ridden so have a lot of time to kill! Any suggestions welcome! UTV

The Good wife

Remake of V

Cold Case

Not forgetting a bit of trash TV to make you feel a bit better:

Junior Apprentice

Record Britain's Got Talent - so you can fast forward all the embarassing bits!

BTW- Hope you feel better soon burst appendix sounds horrid!

treme is a grower, I like it.

Fringe is good, there are 2 whole seasons of that "out there"

Also Lie To Me, Warehouse 13 and Big Love

"no reservations" is the show

I second 30 Rock. Only just got into it myself, but I think it's superb.

Modern Family is superb. Look out for Parks and Recreation and Community online. All cracking sitcoms.

30 Rock - All episodes

Modern Family complete season 1

Community complete season 1

Its always sunny in Philadelphia - All episodes

Parks and Rec seasons 1 and 2

Another nod for Mad Men here. Each series of it thus far has been excellent!

I also agree with Fringe. If you want something funny aswell then check out Californication.

Yeah a friend was talking up Parks and Rec to me just yesterday. I'll give these all a look after June 19th (uni exams get over), need to find something to replace How I Met Your Mother which has been so poor this year.
