Thought we could have a general thread instead of show specific thread to recommend various tv shows, documentaries, or mini-series. The HND thread has got movies pretty much covered.

Been watching this show via Netflix and enjoying it.

Sherlock is a British television crime drama that presents a contemporary update of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes detective stories. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Martin Freeman as Doctor John Watson. Six episodes, broadcast since 2010, have been produced, with three more episodes scheduled to begin production in March 2013. The series has been sold to over 180 territories.

Sherlock depicts "consulting detective" Holmes, assisting the Metropolitan Police Service, primarily DI Greg Lestrade (Rupert Graves), in solving various crimes. Holmes is assisted by his flatmate, Dr John Watson, who has returned from military service in Afghanistan. Although the series depicts a variety of crimes and perpetrators, Holmes' conflict with his archnemesis Jim Moriarty (Andrew Scott) is a recurring feature.

Critical reception was overwhelmingly positive, with many reviews commending the quality of the writing, performances and direction. Sherlock has been nominated for numerous awards, including BAFTAs and Emmys, winning several across a variety of categories.

Sherlock is the creation of Mark Gatiss and Stephan Moffat. Moffat is also the creative element and mastermind behind the last few seasons of Doctor Who. If you like creative intelligent smart writing with strong characters, both shows will fill your desire.

My wife and I are big fans of "Mike & Molly" (Monday nights on CBS). It is really well written, and not since the early seasons of "Roseanne" has their been a GOOD show about people who are not widely regarded as beautiful or sexy.

I'll also admit that one of my guilty pleasures is the new night time drama "Nashville" (Wednesdays on ABC). I'm a big country music fan, and I front a local country band myself, so I can relate to the music end of the series. The show is produced by T-Bone Burnett and virtually all of the songs featured on the show have been written by highly respected songwriting teams, making that part of the show really top notch.

Lets try and discuss some of the less popular shows as well. I think most people are aware of "walking dead" and similar popular shows. Shows or docs that dont already have their own threads. :wink:

I watch some of those too.

Game of Thrones
Walking Dead
Breaking Bad - just started, only 2 episodes in so far
Dexter
Spartacus

My wife and I watch a lot of the CBS shows. I think they're pretty good for the most part:

Mike and Molly
2 Broke Girls
How I Met Your Mother
New Girl
Two and a Half Men
Big Bang Theory

We both liked Torchwood: Miracle Day too, that was on last year, but it doesn't seem like they'll be doing another season. We also liked the first season of Camelot, but they cancelled that too.

A great series from a little while back that I'll recommend highly is The Shield. I really enjoyed that show.

Documentaries (All can be found on Netflix):

Exit Through the Gift Shop - A film about street artists. The guys that tag city walls guerilla style and the film maker who gets caught up in joining them.

The Parking Lot Movie - Something like a real life clerks. Tells the story of slackers who work as booth operators at a pay for parking lot and the stuff they have to put up with.

God grew tired of us- Several lost boys of Sudan are brought over to America and shows their struggles of adjusting as well as the crap they went through just to survive while in Africa.

Craigslist Joe - Guy decides to see if he can live through the kindness of others for 30 days just by posting and answering ads on Craigslist.

The Cartel - Teacher's Unions...need I say more?

The Comedians of Comedy - follows four comedians around and gives the life of being on tour. Brian Posehn, Maria Bamford, Zach Galifinakis, and Patton Oswalt.

American Teacher- pro-teacher flick.

:-k hmmmm.....bu, bu, bu, but....the children! I'll have to check out uni's review before I watch it

I love Holmes on Homes. The guy is a bit fruity, a Mr. Clean knock-off, but it's a great show for anyone interested in heavy DIY/home building.

My brother-in-law is trying to get me to watch some Adult Swim shows. We have a similar sense of humor, so I'm assuming I'll be a fan. I forget what they're called, but he showed me a clip of Bob The Builder (little kids show), being visited by the mafia. lmao at that one...

My wife and I started watching Chicago Fire.

It's got the young blonde doctor from House. Except instead of a British doctor (or Australian? I don't know, he talk funny) he's an American fire fighter.

It's pretty good.
