I use to watch Hong Kong TVB dramas.
But it was the same thing pretty much all the time.
Boy and Girl hate each other at the start. Boy helps Girl with problems they fall In love at end. I swear Hong Kong dramas have no new ideas.

All time favorite shows-
•The Office (American version) : Love Steve Carell as Michael Scott. Love the Jim & Pam story
•Entourage : Love Ari Gold's character. And of course, Vinny boy & his entourage
•Prison Break : What A Show!
•Inbetweeners (British version) : Hilarious. Just hits the right spot, over & over again
•Grey's Anatomy : Love it, except for Meredith Grey. Don't like that actor, she's boring
•Modern Family : Seen a lot of random episodes. Liked it.
•Breaking Bad
•Fringe : Only seen the first season, but loved it.
•Game of Thrones : Only seen the first & second seasons.


Overrated shows (IMO)-
•Big Bang Theory : It's stale & monotonous. Penny is HOT, but boring. Sheldon is just boring & repetitive. Liked it initially for first 2 seasons, but after that it just got monotonous. Some Raj & Howard moments are funny though.
•HIMYM : Barney has been the only saving grace. The story got stretched too freaking long.
•FRIENDS : The most overrated show in the history of Television (after Kahaani Ghar Ghar ki & Kasauti Zindagi Ki :lol:)

2.5 men is an abomination man. For the love of god.
 
Breaking bad, dexter (1-5, 7)
Comedies: arrested development! (Funniest show of all time!!), rules of engagement (super underrated) and community (really underrated) and modern family.

Although some shows are not on long enough to be given a chance, the problem is that those that are good enough go on for far too long.

Will be interesting to see when the next great network drama comes along. I just don't think they can compete with cable with regards to restrictions and what not.

The only one i have like was Breaking Bad, and i really loved it.

Did not like Hannibal, abandoned after a couple episode, House of Cards ... seen both US and UK, True Detective became really lame and predictable after a couple episodes, tried many more but just could not get into them.... that Harvey Specter law thing was so-so, and started dragging, that FBI one really sucked (Neal Caffrey) and got worse with each season. Extras was "meh", Black Mirror seemed nice in concept but boring to watch.

I have a whole lot more on my drive but no time to watch.

Remember T-Bag having his severed arm re-attached? Later on he had to re-severe it just to escape?

Prison Break was the best until that all landed back in that South America or Mexican prison. Than it became unwatchable.

I think Fox has new drama this Thrusday called Gangland.

Season 2 of Prison Break was the best when they all went to different parts of the country.
For me, Season 1 and 2 are the greatest seasons in all of TV. Seriously every episode had me on the edge of my seat and every ep had a twist. Then Season 3 happened. :-|

Michael Scofield is the most intriguing and compassionate character ever and also his battle of wits with that FBI guy in the second season was the highlight of PB.

Older shows:

I watched all of Dexter, but felt it steadily went downhill. I liked the first few seasons of Seinfeld, but it got too mean.

Brilliant engineer Michael Scofield, the southern-accented Theodore T-Bag Bagwell, loved his vocabulary and badassness and FBI Agent Alexander Mahone (season 2)! I loved the way it hurts for Brad Bellick!:) Sucre and the NBAi/basketball kid (I forgot his name) adds to the plot and etc.

Scofield was invented by R Ludlum.His rival was Valery Taleniekov, a former KGB agent and both joint forces in IL CIRCOLO MATARESSE...the most exciting and inteligent creation from Ludlum and one that would have signed For(s)hite as well.

Don't watch much TV, but I guess I like Modern Family. In past, I followed Lost (ABC).

Seen Breaking Bad 5 times, about to start it for the 6th with my partner who's never seen it.

Also a big fan of:
The Wire
The Sopranos
Suits
Parks and Recreation
Inbetweeners (UK, obviously!)
Curb

Chicago Fire is pretty good, not legendary status but it's an entertaining hour imo.

For some reason I didn't quite like the inbetweeners, maybe it is because I didn't like American Pie either, that's why.:-|

R.I.P. James Gandolfini. Frankly, I didn't like the Sopranos one bit, it's just me.:-| So I figure no point for me to start watching Breaking Bad?
