    Any Genre.

    Never been interested in any Tv series - except LOST, which i didn't even bother watching the ending. But have 2 weeks off soon - so anything that is highly recommended in Comedy, Crime, Thriller, Drama - anything!

    P.S - The only recommendation that i have so far is The Wire.

    For comedy, you can't go wrong with Community or Arrested Development.

    Arrested development is highly rated on Imdb and the synopsis sounds like something i wouldn't get bored of! Going to try and watch the first season as well.

    You have chosen wisely. Two shows in the upper echelons of TV as far as I'm concerned.

    The Wire (Stick with it or 5-6 episodes if you are the kind who gets bored by initial ones)..
    Deadwood
    Sopranos
    Breaking Bad
    Jericho
    FireFly
    Arrested Development
    Curb your enthusiasm
    Community
    Parks and recreation
    Archer


    Any of these shows are worth watching if not already seen

    Thanks for the recommendations!

    What about Dexter, is that any good?

    You can't really watch more than two series at a time if you're watching them straight through, in my view, so I'd say Breaking Bad and Arrested Development's as good a mix as any. Best drama on at the moment and best comedy of the last decade or so, arguably. Also:

    It's Always Sunny in Philidelphia
    Carnivale
    Game of Thrones
    Boardwalk Empire
    Six Feet Under
    Dexter (1-4)
    House (1-5?)

    The last two are good watches but not great series' even at their best.

    First two seasons are. Third was meh, four was good. Been poor since then IMO. But you will definitely enjoy the first season.

    Brwned's list is good. Add them all up

    BSG is the only show where the ending ruined the whole show for me. Till about 3 seasons, I loved it. :(

    I totally agree but still the pilot and starting seasons were amazingly good, I was unhealthily addicted to the show.

    Oz is amazing. Prison drama like it should be, way better than that trash Prison break.

    It's always sunny in Philadelphia is fantastic as well, just recently started watching it. I love it, one of the best comedy series out there.

    if your in to Sci-Fi , you cant go wrong with Babylon 5.
    5 seasons all excellent and with maybe the best ending of a series ever.

    I've never watched it, could someone explain why it's so universally hated?

    If you're going to watch the Wire, you might need 3 or 4 episodes to get into it. I know a few who watched a couple of episodes and couldn't get into it and stopped.

    Dexter is well worth watching. Obviously The Sopranos if you haven't watched it yet.

    If you want some funny easy watching stuff, then I would highly recommend Boston Legal.

    Band of Brothers is brilliant.

    Jericho is very out of place in that list.

    the first season is excellent , I think the second suffered because of the writers strike

    I'm so jealous of you beginning that for the first time. Sorkin is a genius. Enjoy!

    I'm going to get back to watching The Wire again tonight. I watched season one ages ago and so have just had to watch a YouTube recap and also ready the summary on Wikipedia to help remind myself. I think I watched one episode of Season 2 as well. I remember
    bodies in a cargo container and people putting eggs in their beers. That's all, for some reason.

    A lot of people on here don't seem to like season 2 but I thought it was great. Surprised you've not watched the rest, seasons 3 and 4 are fantastic.

    2 is possibly my favourite season.

    My recommendation is Parks and Recreation. Best thing I've seen in absolutely ages. Incredibly funny and great characters
