    I didn't get into Luther first time around, but watched it all recently. Great TV.

    I'm going to start on Sons of Anarchy soon.

    bit different than the rest mentiond as its a 20 minute animated comedy but i'm watching Bobs Burgers. i'm three episodes into the 2nd series and it's excellent, some brilliant characters in it. Got fargo and house of cards waiting for when im wanting to watch something a bit more serious. Downloading the new sons of anarchy epsiodes as they air, been a brilliant season so far so definately recomend catching up with that.

    Thats a pretty good list.

    I'll add

    Arrow
    Boss
    Banshee
    Graceland
    The Tunnel
    The Tyrant
    Resurrection

    I really like Elementary but, its a bit of an acquired taste.

    I think this is one of the best TV series I've ever seen. Hamlet meets fall of the Roman Empire on motorbikes with cowboys. However prepare yourself mentally, it gets gruesome and very dark.

    Gomorrah, an Italian production is pretty decent. It's currently on Sky Atlantic and the soundtrack IMO is decent. A bit Mogwai-esque. Mogwai did the soundtrack for the French TV programme The Returned which is far better than The Leftovers.

    Prison Break and Breaking Bad are the best TV series' I have ever watched. Can't pick a winner between them though.

    Currently watching the blacklist & legends, both are very good TV shows, especially the blacklist! Series 1 was brilliant and 2 has been great so far. Also started watching Gotham, which starts on Channel five on the 13th.

    I totally agree with you on that, I love sons of anarchy, the 7th and final series has been mental so far

    Show called Vikings was quality too, the wire was amazing. Dexter is a good watch . Just watching Grey's anatomy which is surprisingly good. Loved the show "heroes" might watch that again actually. Peaky blinders was decent. If I were to watch one of them it would be" the wire". So good.

    Just finished a young doctors note book and other stories. Was pleasantly surprised find it on Netflix on 22 mins long and 8 episodes in total, some cracking black humour .

    There was an episode when the whole cast sang throughout the episode, he was shocking. He's quite good normally though.

    Completely forgot about Fringe, that was excellent if a little bit "out there" at times.

    Im looking forward to The Flash, managed to see the pilot episode when it was leaked a few weeks back and it was good

    Also thought of another series i would recommend for a boxset session. Flashforward, loved it and was gutted when it was cancelled after just the one season.

    Prisoners of War (the Israeli show Homeland was based on) is really good. Better than Homeland though a subtitled show may not be your cup of tea!

    Just in case you are looking for non American shows, you could try the following:-

    The Fall (series 2 due later this month)
    Hinterland
    Amber
    Broadchurch
    Borgen (subtitles)
    The Killing (subtitles)
    The Bridge (subtitles)
    Spiral (subtitles)
    Arne Dahl (subtitles)

    The advantage of the subtitled shows is that you don't really know who the stars are and therefore who is not likely to die! Also, the original Scandinavian shows are always better than the American remakes.

    Quite enjoyed the first season of spiral. Watched the 2nd one a couple of months ago and thought it was poor in comparison though.
