BB is good fun. The latter seasons tend to drag for me.

Mad men is pretty cool. lots of great quotes.

I'm surprised no one is giving props to The Wire. It's a fucking masterpiece. It's the only show where i connected with multiple characters. It also gives a clear view of the flaws of institutions. If you haven't seen it, watch it!

If I've seen the ones in bold and for the most part loved them, will I enjoy the others?

On account of Breaking Bad getting 'better'....pretty subjective I'd say. The show is watchable as the content is interesting. The series of events, however, starts to slack the line on my disbelief until it hangs like a piano merely high enough to graze my hair at each new development.

I've watched recently and enjoyed thoroughly:

6 Feet Under (satisfied and estranged my Michael C. Hall fascination)

Twin Peaks (the first 8 episodes being what I'd call the finest filming and development on television)

X-Files (seasons 1-4 barring some gobsmacked American cheese)

Top Gear (uk) - this show allowed me to strengthen my appreciation of automobiles and my love for British culture/humor.

Black Adder - britcult reasons as well.

3rd Rock From The Sun - the first few seasons are the true gems, and the show wrings some good jokes out of the premise as it continues into its 6th season.

Trailer Park Boys - those who know it, know it well that TPB is a microcosmic look at the humanity that thrives within destitute and repugnant conditions. I got my 50+ year old dad into it last month....nuff said.

Any 'celebrity reality' show that features Gary Busey = some deep american laughter. He usually gets yanked off any show after the first few episodes...my particular favorite is Celebrity Fit-club 2.

Haven't seen too much of Boardwalk Empire but atmosphere seems very dense and enthralling.

They aren't anything like the ones you put in bold, and these just happen to be the films I've seen most recently and liked a bunch. But our tastes might overlap and they are good films, so. Maybe? Yes? No?

I was also going to suggest Irreversible but it's already mentioned so, his other movie;

Enter the Void. (Gaspar Noë)
4 (Ilya Khrzhanovskiy)
L'année dernière à Marienbad
Reconstruction (Christoffer Boe)
Satantango (Bela Tarr)
Solaris (Tarkovsky)
Memento Mori (Dan Browne) -> watch it on Vimeo!
Paradise Lost (documentaries about the West Memphis three)
Salo (Pasolini)
Dancer in The dark/Antichrist/Melancholia (Lars Von Trier)
...

If you like any of these and want more, just ask...

I second the motion, Madmen is for nihilistic pantywaists.

Also Plane gave good mentions....some of those I'm bookmarking for later viewing.

haha I've had people say that they think I'll start like one of the younger characters, but end up like Alan Statham by the time I'm a consultant...

I might have to rewatch the series now you've mentioned it

That's a damn good show, though I wasn't too pleased with how season one ended. I'm sure season 2 will be good as well
