Battlestar is a great suggestion.

Dexter and Breaking Bad are extremely violent though

The Thick of It

Dexter- great, but violent
The Wire- best of all, also violent.

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

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

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!!!

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

Grey's Anatomy grin

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

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 ...)

DoctorGilbertson Sun 18-Nov-12 18:34:05

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?
