    I couldn't get into Breaking Bad or Walking Dead. I gave them both lots of episodes, but no. Maybe I'm the only one out there that doesn't like them...

    I understand where you're coming from...I found them both hard to get into at first but they each got better as they went on. Walking Dead was really bad during season 2 because it was a damn snorefest!

    Shows everyone should watch:
    House of Cards
    Banshee
    Helix

    Walking dead Season 2 was terrible. this current season has been hit or more. but Helix has been good and Banshee is awesome.. look it up.

    Most of my shows have been mentioned, except for the finished BBC comedy the IT Crowd.

    Also, no Justified fans?

    Its first season was OK, but since then it has been getting better as it goes along. Great villains, acting and dialogue. Funny without losing any of the grit or violence.

    An example:

    For all us TV addicts..

    Depress yourself and find out how much time you have wasted watching TV.. or sorry not wasted.. how much Entertainment research have you done:

    And that doesn't even account for re-watching episodes.

    Oh man, I tried to do 24 on Netflix, and I couldn't. Huge plus because Elisha Cuthbert was in it, but she just hurt my head...I got bored of it fast. I sound like such a TV/Movie snob.
