If you're into mobsters/street gangs/bikers, nudity, gratuitous violence, then SOA if for you. First two seasons are insane then it takes on a different trajectory in the third or forth but picks up big time in the new season.

Boardwalk Empire is another good show.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

That's HBO though. As is Sopranos, The Wire, Deadwood, Rome, Generation Kill, Oz, Six Feet Under, Game of Thrones, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Band of Brothers. Almost every great show under the sun is HBO. Mostly other shows pale in comparison so I'm not sure if I have anything to really recommend that's not HBO. Breaking Bad is a piece of art but you've seen that already. The Walking Dead I thought was absolute tripe, I seem to be in the minority but that's what I think.

I see The Office UK is on Netflix. That's definitely worth checking out if you haven't seen it.

Eh, I'm a little burned out on the dark and serious and violent. I've run through four seasons of Breaking Bad and Walking Dead in just over two months. I'm thinking maybe mad men, but for whatever reason I have a hard time picking it when I look through netflix. Somebody told me to try out Dead like me.

Yeah, I wish netflix would get HBO shows. I have in fact seen the UK office and I loved it, hated the american version and hate it even more that people think it's the other way around.

Anyone watch Weeds? I wish dexter was on netflix in the states, it was in Canada and I got caught up in like the middle of the second season before I left, so now I hate life.

Mad Men is a much slower paced show for a more mature audience. It's for the baby boomers since it's a period piece set in the 60's. An emmy award winning show. I recommend it only because I worked in advertising before, but anyone can enjoy it.

You'll like SOA though.

The original blows the american version out of the water, it's not even close really. I mean, there are plenty of sitcom's out there worse than The Office US, but where the original Office is revolutionary in it's style and incredibly intelligent and well written for a comedy, US version after a promising start became more and more like just another sitcom. The whole concept of The Office UK was that it wasn't supposed to feel like a comedy, it's more like a depressing reality drama if anything, the humour is not there to slap you in the face, there are few jokes, no laughtrack, no punchlines. It's all subtle remarks and tiny neuances in the acting.


The finest comedic performance you'll ever see.

The Office US has become compromised, surely in a way to please the masses and get more ratings, and it's become just another sitcom who pretends to be smart just because there's no laughtrack. There's more to it than that.

Edit: If anyone is bored, this is the epiode to watch, the best of them all as far as I am concerned.

The Chris Rock video, is apparently banned in my country...from a UK company...

SoA is amazing. Dexter is amazing. Watch them if you can Life, you won't regret it.

If you're burnt out from violence, have you seen Californication? That show has had me in tears laughing.

Just started watching Homeland, first episode was pretty damn interesting. Damian Lewis was great in BoB, and I suspect he will be great here. His wife is also hot as ****kk.

Watching SOA tonight!
