Present American TV Programs!

I've been on a bit of a binge lately watching boxsets of programs I've never seen before. NCIS, Supernatural and just started watching one called Criminal Minds. NCIS is good but Criminal Minds is shaping up to be better so far. Anyone watched any of these? Any other gems out there that I haven't discovered yet? Watched Prison Break but totally lost interest half way through the 3rd series, I mean how long can something be dragged out?

    I've seen all oof the fist 2 seasons of criminal minds, they're really good. Gideon leaves though at the end of the second series and he was my fav character. But from reviews season 3 is supposed to be pretty good, so I'll probably start watching that again.

    Battlestar Galactica is supposed to be amazing.

    You can get american office first 3 series for like £17 off the interent, thats worth it. Just don't watch the pilot episode.

    Is supernatural worth seeing, my sister has the boxset i just haven't seen it and am undecided whether to watch it.

    It's not part of the storyline, he just don't appear in the 3rd series, so I haven't ruined anything for you.

    The Wire.

    The greatest piece of television ever.

    I'm not exaggerated when I say this is the shakespeare of our day.

    The final two seasons of the Sopranos were extremely weak imho.

    The Shield, whilst being one of the superior cop programs ever produced, still can't touch the wire; again all imho.

    I've only been watching the current runs of The Wire on BBC2 (4th season starts tonight) and already I would rate it higher than Dexter in my favourites. However, I watched all The Sopranos on Channel 4 for years and so perhaps have more of a loyalty to it (and The Shield on Channel5) if you see what I mean.
     
    After another few series of The Wire it may well be pushing for a top place IMO.

    I don't like getting bogged down in debates that are, ultimatley, very subjective.
     
    However, to say The Wire is kack......fella, you could not be more incorrect if you tried.
     
    Give me another fictional televison series with that level of character depth, that tackled complex socio-economic and politico-economic contemporary issues on both a macro and micro level, contained not a single piece of superfluous dialogue or scene, had a natural rhythmic flow as the seperate storylines seamlessly merged into one over the course of the series, and did all that without being pretentious.
     
    I highly suggest you watch it again.

    You're in for a treat.
     
    Season 4 is by the far the best of the series.

    Thats the problem with these American shows. They always seem to drag them out long after they stopped being good. Lost is a classic example of a show which stated out great but then got a bit 'lost'.

    Watched the first episode of True Blood on Friday nght and that looks promising.

    You did gain far too much fat though,I mean,you're not muscular at all,you're just a fat mess.

    The first 2 maybe 3 series of Sopranos are the best TV I've seen I would say but as with all shows they seem to become a bit darker as they go on, the early Sopranos had some great humour along with everything else but towards the end it lost all that.

    Entourage.
    The characters of Ari Gold and Johnny Drama are consistently funnier than I've seen in any other modern shows.

    Another program I've heard is good is that one with Donald Sutherland, Dirty Sexy Money I believe its called. Haven't seen it but afew people weren't happy as it came out just at the writers strike and they decided not to make any more after the strike ended. Anyone seen this?


    *EDIT*
    Just looked it up and they did make a 2nd series so I was talking a load of b**lcks there.
