Skip to comments.Vanity: Looking for good TV/Cable TV dramas. Any suggestions?
Posted on 11/12/2012 3:14:13 PM PST by Leaning Right
A couple of weeks ago I was aimlessly changing channels when I came across CBS's "Vegas", a drama about the mob in Las Vegas in the early 1960's. It's a fantastic show, with a strong sense of right and wrong, and I didn't even know that the show existed.
So evidently not all of TV is either mindless reality or bland comedy. Any suggestions for other good TV dramas?
Blue Bloods - Tom Selleck plays NYPD commissioner and the family is involved in NYPD one way or another.
“The On-Going Saga of the 2012 Dallas Cowboys”.
That's my favorite.
Walking Dead (chomp chomp bang bang)
Rizzoli & Isles (starts up again later this month)
I love it. Good winter watching for me. .
I’ve watched Vegas a few time. Bad guy Casino owner run by the Mob vs. Good Guy Sheriff. Pretty standard TV drama. It’s another show you could say “I’ve seen this plot” a million times.
I dunno. Maybe didn’t like the lead actor in McGyver?
If you get Netflix, watch Foyle’s War, Downton Abbey and Doc Martin - all from BBC and here on PBS. Nikita on Netflix and current on CW network. Also like Breakout Kings, Common Law and Alphas - all on cable but past episodes available on line if you know where to look. Just for fun - Merlin. Add me to the list of those who like Blue Bloods, Breaking Bad, Dexter and Homeland
History Channel is available under listing for USA
The Last Detective -
The Last Detective is an ITV drama starring Peter Davison as Dangerous Davies. ... 1
I dont watch television. A friend gave me this series to watch. It was worth it and I am fussy. Very fussy.
I found Breakout Kings on Netflix but the show has been canceled. I liked it. It’s a Prison Break spin off. Haven’t seen that show.
Wallander is terrific.
The series led to me reading all of the books.
Forgot to add: Arrow, new series on CW
We have similar tastes. I like the BBC ones and Nikita. Haven’t watched the others.
I’ve gotten hooked on Lark Rise to Candleford. Takes a few episodes then it sucks you in. Amazon has it.
NCIS, Burn Notice, CSI-New York, Rossolli and Isles.
I love Wallander, and the new Sherlock series. Kenneth Branaugh is making one final season (4th season) composed of 3 episodes.
I get a lot of my documentaries and crime drama/mysteries from British torrent sites. Nobody does history or mysteries like the Brits.
The Killing, Hell on Wheels, Chicago Code
