Watch out for Banshee on Cinemax. It's Amish Mafia meets Pulp Fiction meets Alan Ball (of American Beauty, Six Feet Under and True Blood).

Maybe not, but who cares about believability? Pulp Fiction wasn't exactly a PBS documentary itself

@farmerman,
On a tangent, Farmerman, when are you going to blow up your next mountain? I'd still like to see how it's done.

@dlowan,
True Blood - True Blood - True Blood
I used to hate that show till season 2 but it is not that crappy after all, well that's if you are in the bloody-fantasy series and if you have no problem with nudity or sex. You will totaly enjoy it and it has 6 seasons, 7th is coming out on June and it's gonna be the last one.
xoxo have fun:]

My current addiction is to the CBS series The Good Wife. It centers around Alicia Florick, a middle-aged lawyer, mother of two teenagers, and wife of a somewhat sleazy but charismatic politician who cheats on her, but whom she stays together with for career reasons. I like this series because the lawyer side of it is very good at keeping up with contemorary problems around technology, police-state overreach, and so forth. At the same time, the teenager- and marriage trouble keeps it grounded. It's definitely on par with the series on HBO and Showtime these days.

@Thomas,
I've seen a couple of episodes but never been able to stay awake! I keep hearing how good it is. Must try again.

I'm enjoying Master of None on Netflix. Yes, I have Netflix. Blush. Also enjoying rewatching Mad Men and some other stuff.

@Lash,
Most of those are not HBO. Wallander and Luther are BBC, Broadchurch is ITV, and The Killing is a cheap knock off of a Danish classic.

@Lash,
The thread above mine was mentioning what she watched on Netflix, so I mentioned what I watched on Netflix.

@Lash,
Or you were doing what you usually do, crediting Americans for other countries' output.

@izzythepush,
LOL. You had to reach really far for that. What a miserable, pinched-off little man you must be to troll about so desperately for something to argue about.

Live alone, don't you.
