    Hi,

    I've recently finished watching all 8 seasons of House and now I'm out of TV to watch!

    Can anyone recommend something I can pick up? (Cheap is preferred but not essential...)

    I've heard Prison Break is good, as it The Wire, Breaking Bad and Suits. Can you even pick these up in the UK?

    Thanks for the help,
    Jifbo

    The Wire. The Wire. And The Wire.
    That is all.

    The first season of The Wire was great never really got into the second but I'm sure I'll finish it at some point.
    I'll +1 Breaking Bad and Firefly.
    I'll add Fringe, Dexter, Sherlock and Lie To Me (Procedural but interesting).

    Might be able to think of some more.

    The second series isn't great, the third goes back to the origional characters more. 3rd Season is probably my favourite. 3>1>4>5>2

    Lots of good suggestions, but 'The Almighty Johnsons' appears to be missing.

    Shockingly it appears to be canceled after only 2 seasons :(

    It's a pretty boring choice, but just you reiterate the above: The Wire.

    It took me literally years to get round to start watching it in spite of everyone banging on about how great it was. Finally got round to starting season one and raced through it.

    It's simply the best TV show I've ever watched.

    I've been enjoying Frankin & Bash a lot, it's up to season 2, very funny with a pretty strong cast.

    Tough one, but here goes:

    Supernatural. -They lost the plot a bit in seasons 5 and 6, but they're back on it in season 7
    Weeds - the first three seasons were enjoyable. Haven't seen anything after.
    Sons of Anarchy - Flattens out in the last season, but could pick up again. Generally good.
    Californication - first two seasons... I wouldn't bother too much with anything after
    Top Gear - Nuff said
    NCIS - good fun, if a bit procedural
    Bones - see comments on NCIS
    Breaking Bad - I have so far seen 3 seaons of this, and found the third one flat... but the first two were good.
    Jericho - Great fun... only 1.5 seasons, though
    Eureka - a bit meh... just a bit... ultimately not bad, though.
    Better of Ted - Funny as hell, if it's your kind of humour and only once you get into it
    It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia (aka Sunny in Philly) - GREAT, once you get into it... + points for Danny DeVito
    Spartacus - worth watching - all three seasons
    Rome - If you haven't seen this yet, go... watch it.

    HIMYM, Boardwalk Empire, New Girl (Zoey Cheesecake) & Suits.

    Band of Brothers is worth rewatching every year or so, as is Long Way Round

    Couple of my recommendations: (they aren't all amazing but I would say they're all worth a watch, some far better than others)

    Deadwood
    Dexter
    Breaking Bad
    Rome
    Spartacus
    Chuck
    Spooks
    Lie to Me
    30 Rock
    Game of Thrones
    Sherlock
    Peep Show
    New Girl
    Miranda

    Mix of comedies and more drama based shows, could go on but those should keep anyone busy for a couple of months.
