Big Bang theory

Thank you - looking them up now. Yes, I enjoyed Studio 60, although watched it without DH.

Not very keen on violence (beyond about the level in Lewis) would this rule out the Wire?

DoctorGilbertson Sun 18-Nov-12 18:34:49

Dh likes Big Bang theory, not quite my cup of tea (not much of a social life here you can probably tell ...)

Grey's Anatomy grin

There are 7 seasons out on box set. DH and I love it!

Summer heights High by Chris lilly or Angry Boys both equally funny

The Wire is truly awesome. It can be violent but is believable and not over the top. Cannot recommend it highly enough, in fact I am jealous that you haven't seen it yet!!!

I didn't like The Wire.. tried, but meh.

Avoid Dexter/Game of Thrones etc if you don't like violence.

Needalifeagain Sun 18-Nov-12 21:52:55

The Wire
Modern family
The Killing

wigglesrock Sun 18-Nov-12 21:56:07

Modern Family
Early Doors
Jonathan Creek
Battlestar Galactica

Big Love
Breaking Bad
Dexter- great, but violent
The Wire- best of all, also violent.

The Thick of It

JackThePumpkinKing Sun 18-Nov-12 22:10:59

Battlestar is a great suggestion.

Dexter and Breaking Bad are extremely violent though

Londonista1975 Sun 18-Nov-12 22:13:53

I second The Good Wife

coocoocachoo Sun 18-Nov-12 22:19:27
