If you want to go "old school," Twin Peaks is excellent.

If you like comedy, 30 Rock is hilarious.

Even though I like David Lynch movies I could not stand twin peaks...it is just too cheesy

By "cheesy" you mean the "best thing that ever appeared on network television", right?  ;D

It is a bit silly, I suppose. I like it because it is a unique mixture of silliness, mystery, and "otherworldlyness." If it wasn't for Twin Peaks, I'm not sure I would have discovered as quickly my love of coffee.

Something my wife and I enjoyed a ton was Damages. I think there are 3 to 5 seasons available on Netflix, DVD, etc.

Yeah I could not stand it...

I am also waiting for the 3rd season of falling skies to be released on bluray..
I did enjoy quite a lot..

I also watched first season of revolution this summer.. it was really great..but since the imdb rating  has been going down I expect the second season is might not as good.

The Shield
Justified
Leverage

They are among my all time favorites...all are on blu-ray and DVD. All have great great characters, great performances, and are exceedingly well-written, esp. IMO, Justified.
May the odds be ever in your favor.

I enjoyed 'Once Upon A Time' - though not seen series 2.

Farscape series 1.

Also try the extended versions of the the Girl (with the Dragon tattoo etc) originally TV episodes that were edited down into the films for release. The extended versions are the full 2 episode per film version shown on TV

My girlfriend did recommend me The Shield..also...
Also she did recommend the River, but I guess it will take some time before it is realeased on Bluray.

I am sorry I did not buy a high end Panasonic Plasma TV to watch some tv rips.
And I know there is many older series out there that I can see before that..It does not need to be the latest..

Anyway I am rewatching the Stargate Universe right now...
Very good serious, season to is not released on bluray I find that a big mystery, I also find it a big mystery that there was no season 3, but I guess, a lot of people is like me they do not want to watch it on tv they want until the whole series is aired so they can watch it when they want etc and not have to wait... and the tv channel will see that not many people watch it, but I think torrents really show what tv series are popular... I guess netflix could be included too.

But it seem really that all tv series that are good they put down..
Such as  Caprica, what happen to that,  and what happen to Terra Nova season 2 it was a good series that did die to quickly.

Regarding stargate Universe, if the producers did put up a kickstarter project for new STU I can promise you...they would reach the goal very quckily..there is a lot of die hard stargate fans out there, and the story of stargate is potentially endless just because of the fact that universe itself is endless without end.

Twin Peaks is basically Americana spun on its head. It was ground breaking for its time. I enjoyed the first season or two, then it got too silly for me. I didn't like the movie very much.

Speaking of old TV shows, I've been watching the 1970s show Kung Fu on DVD via netflix. It was also a ground breaking show that I think has aged well.
Take care.

still trying to find a series to watch after rewatching the SGU.

By the way I forgot another series I watched this summer was "Invasion" from 2005. Do not miss that one...
it is very underrated... and totally amazing. but no season 2.

I assume you already have watched Firefly?
May the odds be ever in your favor.

Yes I have, it was kind of a mixed bag, I do not like the mix of cowboys and sci fi, it has very high rating on imdb, it was good still, very good quality and production.

I also like Battlestar Galactica.

I will save star trek to the last :)

Ya know...if you like SF, Falling Skies is pretty decent. Some episodes are kinda "meh" but the story arc is intriguing, especially the most recent season.

Yeah I like Falling skies, it was a noticable quality difference between season 1 and 2.
I have still not seen season 3 yet, I am waiting for the bluray release.. btw Margaret in falling skies is beautiful :)
