It's probably the best show I've seen. I don't like ranking things like this, but it's a show that starts off good, and just gets better.

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).

Truth! I recently re-watched the whole series. I think it may have been even better than the first time.

I liked The Wire, but I had trouble seeing in it what so many else saw. I just never really got why McNulty was loved by everyone even as he constantly screwed them over.

Great show. I just finished and I hear there will be a season three eventually.
I was watching Elementary and didn't like it at all then I saw this and thought it was worth it.

I've never watched Elementary, but really, I don't think I watch (or want to watch) any network primetime television. It all seems to be bottom of the barrel. The internet says Season 3 of Sherlock will premiere this fall perhaps.

I don't watch much tv. I had heard that there was going to be a show about Sherlock Holmes and that got me interested. I didn't know Sherlock existed at the time.
There are very few primetime shows that I will sit through. Seinfeld, Malcom in the Middle, The Middle. I think that is it. I just finished all the recent Doctor Who's available on Netflix. I am now watching the old ones.

Aye- there's been a long delay- both of the leads went off to do the Hobbit movies.

Not sure what's on Netflix, but Rev and Misfits are worth a look on the Brit side.

I really like the Hulu miniseries called "The Booth At The End". Probably my favorite show at the moment. Which is kind of unfortunate, as each season is 5 episodes and they put out a season every two years.

I know I recommended this earlier in the thread, but I highly recommend The Borgias. Great show. Season 3 is coming out sometime soon. Just finished up season 2 on On Demand tonight.

Also, another Showtime show that is pretty badass is Shameless. Funny as hell.

I suggest giving the latest iteration of Doctor Who a shot.

The last episode of Justified was arguably the best episode Ive ever seen on TV. The combination of the action and the dialogue was almost too much, and yet, so masterfully pulled off, it was believable....
