    TV Show Help

    Bro's of BG, ladies of BG,

    I need some halp. My wife and I have watched pretty much everything there is to watch in the world. We need a new show with longevity that won't end with a night of a couple hours of binging.

    Genres we love:

    - True Crime
    - Suspense
    - Comedy
    - Action

    Genres we hate:

    - Sci-Fi(She hates not me)
    - Anime/Cartoon
    - Super Hero(She hates not me)


    Our favorite shows to date:

    - The Office
    - Parks and Rec
    - Live PD
    - Dexter
    - Breaking Bad
    - Bosch


    TV streaming options to choose from:

    - Sling
    - Hulu
    - Amazon Prime
    - Netflix
    - (Name a show, we will find it and I can DL).

    Throw me your wisdom and save us from this lull

    Saw this bad boy long ago, great recommendation though.


    Edit: Banshee looks great, so does Person of Interest. Wife would rather die than watch The Strain. Keep em coming!

    it looks like a show that was filmed in the early 2000's but its one of the best shows ever made

    I could have bought an 11 pull and have 1000 gems left over, but all I got was this silly title.

    The Expanse - Yea it's Sci Fi but it's pretty much political Game of Thrones in space.

    No, what's going on in The Wire is still very relevant. There are a large number of cases out of Baltimore within the past couple years that are right out of the show which is funny considering it was 90's Baltimore that influenced the show.

    These are some great recommendations. I will have us look into each and see what clicks.

    Luther, if you haven't watched it is a really good crime drama. Seconding The Good Place for a comedy. The Americans might be something you would enjoy as well. The Night Manager on Amazon is another one.

    but nah yeah along with The Sopranos The Wire is the greatest television drama ever made. if you loved Breaking Bad should be a sure thing, much broader focus but similar character-driven cops and crooks drug-fueled shenanigans.

    Was only one season long, but I’d also recommend Limitless. It was pretty fun while it lasted.

    Looks like the wire is a top watcher -- we tried the good place but we went in with high expectations coming from such big Office and Parks and Rec fans.
