as per title, here are some shows you may dont know about, but should

Shameless (USA)



shameless is a usa adaptation of a comedy/drama about a dysfunctional family in lower class england. like many succesful brit comedies the usa decided to make their own version. this version is fucking brilliant. william h macy stars as the drunk dad frank and his oldest daughter fiona (emmy rossum [babe]) has taken the reins of this fucked up family. the show starts off a little slow for the first few episodes however it really picks up as macy picks up his role and the rest had me glued to the screen. currently only one season out though i'm already super keen for the second season which should air early next year.

8.5 on imdb


Human Planet



a documentary series spanning 40 countries in some of the most remote locations on the world where people fucking live. just watch it. watch it in bluray.

9.4 on imdb


The Borgias



another showtime drama, i've only caught the first few episodes however i'm already enjoying it a lot. set in 1492, it follows the fictional crime family the borgias and the struggles for power within. extremely character driven, i'd reccomend this to anyone watching game of thrones. it also stars jeremy irons. enough said.

8.6 on imdb

Also if I can add my own:

Bored to Death (HBO)


imdb link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1255913/

Only two fairly short seasons so far but I enjoyed them. Nothing incredible but a good watch if you're looking for a good comedy.

If you haven't heard of Tremé definitely check it out.

I've just recently downloaded 100gb of random TV and found a few gems.

Edit: for any of the big TV nerds you should prob check out Sickbeard, greatest thing to ever happen to my TV collection.

I've been meaning to start watching Treme for ages. Pretty sure it's by the guy who made The Wire, so it pretty much has to be good.

Ok so those actors look fantastic and I remember hearing something about this a while back.

Also, why didn't anyone tell me that William H Macy was gonna be the dad in the us shameless.
oh man

Couldn't stand the US version of Shameless, almost as bad as the US version of NZ's Outrageous Fortune

Also while everyone should have seen it apparently some have not - 'The Wire' is quite simply one of the best TV shows ever crated and its an absolute sin not to go out and get it if you haven't already seen it.

Just finished first season of Bored to Death (it's only 8 episodes long) and it was pretty great, the first two episodes were a little slow but it gets pretty great from ep 3 onwards.

The paintball episode of community was so excellent, and it had Sean Bean.
Can't go wrong.

the end of s3 in breaking bad almost made me die, s4 better live up to my expectations
