TV Show Recommendation?

Hey All

It looks like I need help in finding a new series to watch. I absolutely loved Dexter, Breaking Bad, Weeds, Californication, Boardwalk Empire etc. and I am looking for something similar (and new to me) to watch.

I also love shows like Lost, Flashforward etc. but it looks like I hit a dead end with finding a new show. I want to add that I never watched Breaking Bad until just a month ago and I absolutely fell in love with it and completed all 4 seasons. So I could be surprised with something that has been airing for a few years that I never watched.

If anyone can recommend some new shows I would greatly appreciate it! I tried a show named Justified, but I didn't really go for it so the hunt is still on I also have some upcoming trips to the west coast, so it would be perfect for the rides.


Thanks in advance!

It's an older FX show but The Shield was a great series.

Archer has some very rich humor. So does Curb Your Enthusiasm. Sports Center is usually fun to watch

Even though it only showed 2 seasons, I would check out "How to make it in America". It was a great show that had an awesome soundtrack to boot!

Thanks all for the recommendations. I will look into a few of them. I did try the wire, but I didn't really love it. I watched OZ back in the day, besides the massive amount of penor being shown it was a pretty good show IMHO.

PS I loved Curb but I am looking for something in the Drama/Dromedy segment right now.

You seen battlestar galactica? It is an epic series, and once you get a few episodes in you realize its not a star-wars sci fi show either.

This. One of the best TV shows of all time.

Also has one of the best series finales ever IMO.

Another good one is 24.

"City Hunter" on Netflix

It's Korean, but really good. A bunch of South Korean commandos get betrayed on a mission by an inner circle of up and coming Korean politicians. The lone survivor of the mission kidnaps the baby of his one of the dead commandos and raises and trains him on a Burmese heroin plantation for the sole purpose of hunting down and killing those politicians. 28 years later, the kid goes back to Korea to get his revenge. They throw in a bunch of cheesy romantic stuff . . but since one of his key rules for staying under cover is "don't fall in love", he has to act like a total a22hole to every woman he meets . . which makes for a good show. 20 episodes and totally addicting.
