If Supernatural appeals to you, don't watch it. Watch Buffy instead.

(And then if you like Buffy, also watch Angel. I think it's actually better.)

Also, Firefly.

On the BBC front: Luther is possibly the best detective show I've seen.

I didn't read all 13 pages but...

Has anyone mentioned Doctor Who?
It's by far the best series ever.
You can also watch its spinoff Torchwood.
And Twin peaks is great too

I don't know if you'll like it...
What I can tell you is that if you think "this is just another sci fi series" you're wrong.
It's more than that.
There's comedy, drama, etc...

A lot of my friends have taken a strange interest in Storage Wars. I haven't seen much of it.

I don't think I have seen it either, but aren't all those 'find and discover' shows like pseudo-reality staged shows?

See if you can find an episode called "Blink". It's possibly the series at its best. If you don't like it, you won't like the rest. It's also one of the less sci-fi episodes- a bit more light horror (though there's always at least some sci-fi in Dr Who).

First season wasn't the greatest, I think. Watch the beginning of the second, and maybe the 4 before that.

Turns out that season 2 of True Blood pretty good. I could do without the Suki and Bill Compton romantic scenes though. I'm at the half of the second season, so no spoilers please.

There are a few very interesting, well created and acted characters, like Lafayete, Renee, Jessica and the maker of Bill.

Before I said Breaking Bad may be the best television show but after last night's episode I think it IS the best. I highly recommend watching the show but you should start with season 1. I was standing up and pacing around my living room last night because being on the edge of my seat wasn't enough.

I'm going to take it back, after the first half season 2 of True Blood gets soap opery again. I'm going to conclude that it's the same with every season, it starts good to establish the conflict and when it starts to resolve the confilct it gets romantic again. Not gonna continue watching it.

I saw an episode of Breaking Bad last night and it's good, but I'm looking more for the sitcom type of series..

I just finished watching "Sherlock" from the BBC / PBS Masterpiece on Netflix Instant recently. I didn't know what to expect going in, other than Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss writers from Doctor Who were part of the production. But I enjoyed the 6 "episodes" available (each episode is like a 90 min movie).
