I need a good drama TV series recommendation. - Page 2

Fringe Priceless performance by John Nobel.

Heroes Still a good show and the fact that Bryon Fuller is coming back to write is a plus!


Battlestar Galactica I can't say enough good about this show. As far as SciFi goes there's nothing else like it. Pretty convoluted plot that still has 8 episodes to play out.

Anything off of Showtime/HBO i.e Big Love, Californication, Weeds etc

Nip/Tuck is pretty amazing but start from the beginning. those are the best

I just caught up with Brothers and Sisters. I just watched the double episode "Troubled Waters." It was devastating. One of the best episodes ever!

This is a show about a city in the Slavic part of the world that the UN is trying to prevent from tearing itself apart due to the Christian/Muslim fighting. It is intense.

I like movies like Amadeus, Downfall, Babel, Schindler's List, Life is Beautiful, Gandhi, The Lives of Others, The Pianist, Ray, The Lord of the Rings, Terms of Endearment, Gran Torino, Frost/Nixon, etc.

I'd like a TV series that is in the same vein as my taste in movies. Good acting, good music, good story, good cinematography. Those are some of the most important elements. I also like drama, intensity and tragedy. And I have a hard time following some movies and TV shows, so the plot shouldn't be too weighed down by tiny details that must be paid attention to in order to understand what's going on.

Also, it would be nice if the series were available on iTunes, but I realize that that might be a bit of a stretch.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Heroes
Desperate Housewives
House
CSI
Dancing with the Stars.

That reads like some kind of alt sex topic heading.
They spoke of the sayings and doings of their commander, the grand duke, and told stories of his kindness and irascibility.

LOL!!!! Too true!

I hear the next episode of Dollhouse (Episode 6) is supposed to be a "game changer" where Whedon finally gets the voice he wants to start building his linear storyline.

Not sure if this is the episode where it's revealed, but there's evidently a big surprise coming with the "Alpha" character.

Hands down one of the greatest dramas ever to be on tv.

Firefly. 14 episodes of some of the best TV ever made, with a fine ensemble cast and brilliant story telling. It won't take up all your time like BSG will. And after you can watch the movie. Shiny.

Serenity is the pilot episode.

Wow...um...friends... Time to move on alright.

How about UK show Shameless??? They're up to the 6th or 7th series now...absolutely brilliant show that is very raw.... Is both touching and hilarious at times...

Can probably buy the DVDs on Amazon or something?
