Okay so I've recently watched: Rome Season 1 & 2 - very much liked it. Sparticus Blood & Sand + God of the Arena - again pretty good. Game of Thrones - still watching, love it! The Walking Dead - very good mini series, some poor acting here and there. Firefly - craptasticbrilliance! Dexter - pretty disapointed with the most recent series. House - as above. 24 - recently watched through all 8 series, was a slog but generally worth while. The Wire - is on the to do list already As a hint Rome and Game of thrones have probably been my favourite of the above. What else can you guys recommend? I'd rather stick to the dramaish/actiony sort of side as opposed to comedy or horror.
