    Halt & Catch Fire. Some of the finest acting ive seen in a TV series. Starts off in the early 80's a the start of the home computer revolution. Its gone 3 seasons now and its final season is out this year.

    If you don't want US series then a couple from the BBC are bloody fantastic.

    Luther & Line of Duty.

    If you are after something to watch with the missus, then I woule recommend 'This Is Us'. If you are not hooked after the first episode then it wont be for you.

    If you've got Netflix, then the following might be worth a look

    Sense8
    The OA
    Designated Survivor

    I've only watched the first 2-3 of the last two, but am enjoying so far. Just trying to find time for the rest...

    Also a big fan of the Marvel shows - Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, but they are not for everyone.

    The 2nd series of No Offence starts tonight on 4 - the first series was surprisingly good last year.

    You MUST check out Love/Hate. I'm amazed it's not had more success. Outstanding. If you liked Peaky Blinders, you'll love this.

    ahhh andytyke, this is a good thread which really appeals to me :)
    as people have already said, the walking dead & breaking bad are two of my favourite yank shows. but id also like to give a shout out to Fargo series 1 & 2.
    and as for british drama, line of duty was ace and im looking forward to the next series. i also liked the night manager where hugh laurie seemed to really enjoy playing a baddie!

    If you enjoyed Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul is the very watchable prequel to it
