Thinking of getting the box set for me DH for Xmas, but not sure if it will be his thing...if you are a Mad Men fan, what other TV stuff do you like?

Damages and Nurse Jackie

Caz10 Sat 11-Dec-10 20:37:36

Oh was so hoping someone would say West Wing, both DH and I liked that, also the very short series which I can't remember the name of now by the same writer - Studio 69? Studio something?

I haven't seen Damages or Nurse Jackie - adding to mental list!

LeakMyWiki Sat 11-Dec-10 20:42:35

The Wire definitely

slicker and more conventional but still good, The Good Wife...

LeakMyWiki Sat 11-Dec-10 20:43:18

oh god, MM is awesome, I can't think that anybody could not like it...

wrinklyraisin Sat 11-Dec-10 20:44:05

Boardwalk Empire. It's just as incredible as MM.

It was called Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip - and it was fab! Have you seen In Treatment? I love MM, West Wing and Good Wife, and In Treatment's on my Christmas list.

Ooh more to add to my list!

I really liked the Good Wife, couldn't persuade DH that it wasn't too girly for him, but I know he is keen to try Mad Men.

My Amazon shopping basket is slightly fuller than it was an hour ago grin

Nurse Jackie for me too. Is there a second season coming up?

wrinklyraisin Sat 11-Dec-10 21:52:48

United States of Tara is fantastic too.

DasherandSmugly Sat 11-Dec-10 22:08:09

Californication, Modern Family, The Pacific, True Blood.

wrinklyraisin Sat 11-Dec-10 22:12:05

Oooh Modern Family, how could I forget that! It's brilliant! Dexter is also incredible. Dark and violent though.

VivaLeBeaver Sat 11-Dec-10 22:13:52

I like Mad Men, also liked Lost and like Desperate Housewives. ER as well.

The Wire
Generation Kill
The Pacific

In fact almost any HBO Drama

thighsmadeofcheddar Sun 12-Dec-10 21:03:27

The Wire
The Sopranos
Modern Family

I really want to watch Dexter and Damages next

twin peaks
getting on

Yes, Nurse Jackie is meant to be coming back next year - phew! Anyone watch Burn Notice? Not as stupendously addictive as Mad Men, but entertaining all the same, especially watching Gabrielle Anwar pouting her way through every episode.
DH has just reminded me about Breaking Bad - how did I forget that? Completely brilliant; Brian Cranston is a million miles away from the mad dad in Malcolm in the Middle. Watch it watch it watch it.

Clary Sun 12-Dec-10 21:28:48

Desperate Housewives

LA Law


Not seen a lot of the ones on this list tho blush

MrsColumbo Sun 12-Dec-10 21:30:49

And Boston Legal. Denny Crane!grin

Harimad Sun 12-Dec-10 21:39:40

Life with the lovely Damien Lewis was great.
Dexter is awesome.
Boston Legal for Shatner and the wonderful James Spader.
Burn Notice is fab.
Firefly if you like Christina Hendricks (okay, she's only in an ep. or 2, but the whole series is awesome)
Studio 60 writing was fantastic.

ArcticRoll Mon 13-Dec-10 10:33:49

Modern Family
The Sopranos
30 Rock
Curb Your Enthuiasm
Nurse Jackie

Have started watching Breaking Bad on DVD. Bloody brilliant- hilarious and tragic all at once.
