    Friends? Lost? I know loads of People who love True Blood but haven't got around to watching it myself

    just started watching the walking dead series after seeing in the cinema and it is surprisingly very good

    Walking dead was very poor IMO, great start all downhill then.

    Mad men
    The West Wing - old now, but my favourite of all time.

    Bones - excellent stuff

    he's got season 1 but aint watched it, is it that good?

    Still think one of the best tv programmes i saw was regenesis.

    West Wing definitley - best series ever.

    you buy complete series box set now for not too much - £40 on amazon. Do a search on HUKD and sure you may find it cheaper. I think play had it quite cheap for a while.

    You are missing much goodness by thinking Supernatural is girly. It may start off a bit formulaic monster of the weekish but is now must see tv for me.

    sci-fi =
    battlestar galactica - awesome
    Fringe - very strange but rather good

    bit more serious=
    Breaking Bad = brilliant, brilliant, brilliant!!!!!!!! have to wait 6 months for next season though
    weeds - brilliant, diverse, hard to fault.

    a bit of comedy =
    eastbound and down - will only appeal to fans of will ferell style season 1 is good season 2 sucks kinda

    a lot of comedy =
    arrested development - clever, not what you would expect from Americans
    30 Rock - quite good but wont appeal to all

    Not sure how you have 11-12 episodes of walking dead to watch?!

    band of brothers

    Pushing Daisies for you.

    The Shield for him.

    Bigred01

    band of brothers



    Brilliant series! Watch this is you haven't already.

    24 fo sure

    From your list your other half has similar tastes to me so can i suggest the following programs

    Criminal Minds - very good about an FBI team that hunt serial killers
    House - Hugh Laurie doctor drama, very good
    Burn Notice - about an ex spy in Miami
    Lie to Me - American drama about a guy who can read peoples emotions, well worth watching
    Boston Legal - Legal drama which has a comic slant to it, its got James Spader in it,

    Burn notice is absolutely aces!

    It's Always sunny in Philidelphia

    Patrick Swayze's last series 'The Beast' was quite good, although his death means that only 13 episodes were made. I don't think it was ever released here, but if you hunt around Amazon you might be able to find a Region 1 import.

    Bones - absolutely love this
    Lie to me - is great
    Boston Legal - is nuts
    True Blood - is amazing
    24 - loved this
    House - great too
    The Office(American) - starts off slowly but is so funny

    Curb Your Enthusiasm

    My OH and I have on box set

    The Wire
    Sopranos
    Lost
    Lie to Me
    Entourage
    (Sex and the City- albeit only I have really watched this!)

    I want to watch The West Wing & The Shield, but just bought the OH Prison Break from HMV instore. Had some good reccomendations from people I know, and was marked £49, but went through at £39.

    ETA: I bought Prison break on 19th Dec, so should be still valid

    Mad Men, Mad Men, Mad Men

    Best show to come out of America since The Wire.

    Also if he liked The Wire and Generation Kill there is a mini series called The Corner that David Simon also did you could pick up.

    24?
