I am looking to watch a new TV series, nothing fantasy wise like Game of Thrones etc, not a fan of that kind. Something that would suit me would be something like Breaking Bad, Prison Break and Suits.

How about Breaking Bad. Or Prison Break. Or Suits?

The 100?

Dexter or Sons of Anarchy.

Arrow. I've watched the 3 series you've said and Arrow is just as good

Love suits or Orange is the new black. Also if you haven't watched homeland do it. It's my fav.

The wire. 24.

I second Orange is the New Black, just started watching it too and it's brilliant.

Fargo the tv series.

as above Fargo

the news

prison break and breaking bad, you answer your own question. Ps my favorite stand alone series it's prison break series 1, however it gets worse. breaking bad starts off really decent but carries on getting better.

Do not watch-

XIII
Sarangoon Road
Believe


Try These

Ray Donovan
The West Wing
Dexter (but stick with it as it is a slow starter)
Damages
The Good Wife

the walking dead

the wire, fargo, bates motel, dexter, the shield, west wing

True Blood, Nurse Jackie, the blacklist, under the dome, Wentworth, the following, bates motel, homeland, Fargo

I've recently finished Breaking Bad and its worth watching! Amazing series and I'd give it 10/10.

Helix

Lost on Netflix

Power, was recent recommended to me. I read about and it seems to be a good plot

True Detective with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.

We are watching Banshee, It can be explicit but its good.

Boardwalk Empire

Sopranos, boardwalk empire, walking dead.

Mad men!

Interested a TV series with politics love and war?

try GOT

dont think of it as fantasy but the above 3

surprised it took 20 posts to get to the recent critical smash, true detective.
haven't seen any yet, but it's supposed to be brilliant

the following
+1 for power. just saw an episode and a half. has potential, but does require mute for the theme tune

chocci

the wire, fargo, bates motel, dexter, the shield, west wing



Often overlooked in these threads, but The Shield is brilliant.

Arrow. I've watched the 3 series you've said and Arrow is just as good



Arrow is awesome... Anyone know when season 3 starts?

true detective is over rated. really boring and slow

Another vote for Power and orange is the new black here,
Also mentioned banshee, house of lies, strike back, orphan black, black sails

All enjoyable

I gave up with True Detective after 2 episodes, so laboured and dull.

surprised nobody has said Hannibal.

doritos

surprised nobody has said Hannibal.



Agreed - Hannibal is amazing !

Banned

Oz, Mad Dogs, The Almighty Johnsons

Franklin and Bash
Friday Night Lights (if your a fan of College American Football)
Entourage
Chicago Fire
Chicago P.D

The shield is epic, Hannibal is currently my fav.

Strike Back - awesome Brit SAS series.

I loved Breaking Bad and I also love...

Hannibal
The Shield
True Detective
Fargo
Homeland
Strike Back

Watched the first couple series of Walking Dead but given up halfway through the 3rd....

Hannibal is the best of the above!

True detective. smashed the first 6 episodes hungover yesterday, now to finish the final 2 after. After episode 2 its so fast paced!

Id recommend watching it with subtitles as their accents are so strong!

Go European..... The Returned (French - brilliant!), The Killing (Danish) or The Bridge (Danish/Swedish) are all great. The British remake of the latter (called The Tunnel) was surprisingly gripping and well acted. From the US i'd go; Orange is the New Black, The Killing, Lost or against your better judgement....Game of Thrones. I hate fantasy but believe the hype, it's sensational).
