Lazy Sundays: Addicting TV Series

As you guys know, I love both The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones TV series.  But lately I’ve been working my way through Breaking Bad (just finished the third season) and House of Cards (just finished the first season).  Both shows are ridiculously addictive and yet I just bought a new TV series to work my way through this winter: HBO’s Rome.  I’ve heard both good and bad things about it but it was on sale at HMV so I figured I might as well give it a try.  If I totally hate it I can sell it to the used DVD shop down the street.

So what TV series do you guys follow?  What would you recommend to other people?  Why?  Have you watched Rome?  If so, how was it?

    Alas I’ve not watched any of the series listed…and no, I don’t live in a cave either; I’m just busy. ^-^ Last shows I followed closely would have been BONES and GLEE. What can I say? I like variety. Have heard all the ones you mentioned though are suppose to be fantastic.

      No judgment here about not being caught up with pop culture trends. I may watch some TV shows but I’m hopeless celebrity-wise.
      That’s good. I can’t wait to start Rome! Maybe one of these days I’ll have to give Bones a try. I’ve heard a lot about it.

    Where do I begin!? I’ve watched all of the shows you’ve named plus about 50 more. Binge watching is one of my fave hobbies, lol. Rome is fantastic, so you should definitely watch it. But I also suggest Sherlock (one of the greatest shows I’ve ever seen), The Tudors, Supernatural, and Luther. But these are just a few that I think you personally would like. My list is honestly endless, lol.

    Glad that you’re watching Breaking Bad, which I loved (and I wrote big rambly season recaps for…)

    And I recommend you watch Rome, I think it was really well done, and there’s a kind of pop-up-text feature that presents details about Roman life and culture, should you want to have that happening. I find that cool, because the show doesn’t hold your hand when the Romans are casually doing something bizarre while they’re otherwise having a normal conversation…

      Your season recaps are actually one of the reasons I tried Breaking Bad. The season 1 recap sounded so interesting I had to at least give the show a try.

      That’s good to know about Rome. I’m kind of an ancient Rome afficianado so I don’t think anything would be too terribly jarring for me from a cultural perspective but it’s good to know just in case. 🙂

    I loved Rome! It just came on re-runs recently – hadn’t seen it in a long time and it was great to re-watch. BTW – the two main characters, Titus Pullo and Lucius Vorenus, are fictionialized versions of two soldiers briefly mentioned in Caesar’s Commentaries on the Gallic Wars.
