I know mate, sure I've seen you say about it before.
A couple of times I went to start to it but never got past 'ross' as the CO before losing interest (I'll admit I had a few drinks and was late when id tried to watch before). Eventually powered through the first episode and that was that. Think I still have 3 or 4 to fonwhixh will be finished tonight. It's very good.
Some well known famous actors throughout as you've probably noticed.
Me too. My advice is persevere with it. Was half way through the 2nd series not really getting it then it just clicked and I couldn't turn it off.
It's fantastic on a 2nd watch as well.
It's a bit weird to start with because there isn't really a main character to attach to.
The wire is great, ive never even considered watching it with subtitles. I've re watched it a few times and i wonder how the younger generation would take to it when you think what they do with the technology of the time compared to now. From their perspective, has it aged well?
The sopranos I've seen multiple times but must admit, if you try and binge it, by the last couple of season it does kinda feel a bit samey like the last few series doesn't bring much new material, but I guess when you've seen it a few times most shows may feel like that. I still love ending as much of a debate as that can bring, I appreciate it as being up their with the best.
It's hard to out a list as I often forget how good things are u til I re watch (sometimes the opposite, I think a show is great then re watch and change my opinion).
GOT was great, I was hooked and loved it. But I'd never re watch it based on how disappointed I was with the last few series (minus a few episodes)
Sons of anarchy I enjoyed, but when I think abxk and if re watch I don't think I would think it was as good.
Same with Dexter.
Breaking bad I could watch over and over.
Better call Saul is up their (I still got last 5 or so episodes of this season to go, I'll save that for a binge next week or so)
Not sure if you can class as a series but I do still enjoy the original Man Vs Food episodes, and a lot of the Ramsey kitchen nightmare. I call them easy viewings I can stick on during the day. Pawn stars and Charlie sheen 2 and a half men also fall into that.
Almost done with Band of brothers and I'm sure this will be added to my list of shows.
Band of Brothers
Line of Duty
Gavin and Stacey
A mixture of superb tv and a few shows I can watch over and over without getting bored. Still never bothered with Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad among other of the usual contenders for these lists. Definitely will at some point.
Would go for:
Our Friends in the North
Looking After Jojo
Line of Duty
Being fair, there’s lots of quality TV I’ve yet to see and I dare say the likes of The Wire, Sons of Anarchy, etc would make my list when I get round to seeing them. The above list were the first 10 that popped into my head as progs that I wouldn’t miss.
The World at War
Life on Earth
The Boys from the Blackstuff
The Office (UK)
Band of Brothers
Tinker Tailor was the 70s series which starred Alec Guinness I take it? Think there was an adaptation of another of Le Carre's 'Smiley' novels made in the 70s, too? Would love to see them as I enjoyed all the novels - wonder if they're available to watch anywhere.
