    Any good New TV Series worth watching

    Hi,

    Traveling quite a lot with work at the moment and wondered if any of you had any good recommendations for TV shows (Either UK or US).

    I've recently really enjoyed Forgotten, Luther and Dr Foster (and not even for just Suranne Jones!!) and I'm looking for more. Couldn't really get into Game of Thrones or Vikings, but probably just me on that

    Anyone got any suggestions please

    John

    It isn't to everyone's taste, but I really enjoyed the recent Fargo series. And the series prior to that as well.

    One of the best things I have seen on the box for ages.

    I had tried Fargo, but didn't get on with it, so didn't watch more than 30 minutes of the first episode, turns out I was watching the wrong Fargo from the 70's, found the new Fargo, and love it, onto Season 2 now.

    Its very good, and the characters are seen in the 70's (Waffle Cafe), the cop playing with the string, he's the old ex cop that was in the 80's (with the guy who killed his wife with a hammer) Fargo season 1, the one who sat on the front porch of the house with his shotgun.

    His grand daughter came out to sit with him playing with his piece of rope, and her with her pellet gun, and when he asked what she would do with that, she said, "take their eye out, and you can finish him" lol

    Any good New TV Series worth watching

    Deutschland 83, Spin, both on More4 and available on catch up.

    The first is a spy thriller set in '80s East / West Germany, the second is a French political drama set in modern day.

    Both are gripping, and capture the mood of the time in which they are set.

    They are subtitled though.

    Edit: completely missed the UK / US bit.

    I'm watching archer on Netflix at the minute. Makes me laugh a LOT.
    Press on past the pilot episode because it gets really good after that.

    Also watching making a murderer and blindspot

    Just finished Aquarius season 1 on sky catch up - sky Atlantic I think. Loosely based on Charles Manson, very good. Season 2 has been commissioned but no release date yet.

    Recommend 1st series of True Detective, again on sky. 2nd series not so good but fortunately it's a completely different story with a different cast, series 1 was top draw

    I've been enjoying Follow the Money on BBC 4 http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b072h7rk Now on iPlayer. Lots of plotlines, intrigue etc. A Danish programme with subtitles (don't let those put you off).

    JUST noticed episodes 1 and 2 expire today (in 7 hours' time, so you may want to grab those tonight. Episodes were broadcast in pairs. There's a week left to catch up with parts 3 and 4. This series is not downloadable as far as I know)

    I'll look up Spin, thanks, as I enjoyed Deutschland '83 (esp as I visited the old Berlin secret police offices a couple of years ago so it was great to see them used in the series - more luxurious, for their time, than you might imagine (provided you weren't in a cell!)

    Better call Saul? Not very new but a lot of people I've spoken to have overlooked it.

    If you've never seen Breaking Bad, it's worth watching. It's very easy to binge watch, although for me it felt a bit tired towards the end (I'm sure plenty will disagree).
    Watch Mad Men - all of it.

    I like what I've seen of Deutschland 83 and Spin so far, they're not UK or US, but as has been pointed out they're both subtitled.

    In the 'actors who can really act' thread, Liev Schrieber and Eddie Marsan get mentioned - both are in Ray Donovan, as is Jon Voigt. If you liked The Sopranos, you'll probably like Ray Donovan.

    'All the Way' on HBO has all the elements to become a good 'un, I think. Bryan Cranston is Lyndon B. Johnson.

    Not particularly new, in fact I'm probably the last one to the party, but I've just watched the first two episodes of 'Black Mirror', it's original to the say the least - off the wall even. It gets 8.8 on IMDB.

    I really enjoyed Sense8, one of the most original series ever and with remarkable performances from actors I had never seen before. Anyway, Netflix have just announced there will be a Christmas Special on December 23rd.

    Just watched the first two episodes of Travelers (sic), not bad but I wonder if it will get repetitive.

    Any of you guys started watching, Taboo yet? If so, how does it compare to Peaky Blinders, and Boardwalk Empire? Curious as to know due to them all being period set around Prohibition.

    Finished season 1 of Sneaky Pete, brilliant, ended in such a open manner that a second season is possible.

    Right now, I'm watching Shooter, episode 10, so far so good with only one more episode left, as said, its good, and worthy of your time.

    Currently watching the second season of Fortitude, and its shaping up to be as good, if not better, than the fist season.

    It has a stellar cast too.

    Homeland is really hotting up now, no spoilers though, I think those watching it will realise whats going on, and whats to come, its all very well executed, with great writing.
