    I'm thinking about binging on a tv series

    I'm kind of down to three fairly different from each other series the I've never seen an episode of. I'm between Mad Men, 24 or Dexter. Any reccomendations? Or any other series you may reccomend? I also considered The Wire, but just don't think I can get into it as I'm not into the whole gang thing.

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Loved Lost. My favorite non-comedy series. Can't get into Game of Thrones or Sons of Anarchy plus I'd like a series that is done so I can binge start to finish.

    I have a feeling I'm going to get a lot of suggestions for Breaking Bad. I don't know why I don't have an interest in trying it. It's probably going to end up being one of those shows I'll have to force myself to watch the first few episodes then I'll end up loving.

    Mad Men. I like it more then Breaking Bad. Just don't give up on it during the first 3 episodes.

    Re: I'm thinking about binging on a tv series

    I'm into 24 now. Never watched a second when it aired. It's addicting. The nice thing is that all the seasons are on Amazon Prime Instant. 8 seasons 24 hours each takes a while to get through.

    I've watched most seasons of Dexter, but since Dish doesn't have Showtime on demand I haven't caught the last season.

    Just finished season 5 of Mad Men last night. Too late to catch up on current season. Have to wait until reruns. Breaking Bad beats Mad Men, however.

    Re: I'm thinking about binging on a tv series

    Crap! Just realized Mad Men is still on! I may have to make an exception to keep it on the list though, as I'm a fan of what I've seen of Drapper. I guess it just feels like its been on forever. That doesn't help though, as I was leaning toward it and now it's more evened out.

    Add another vote for Breaking Bad and Dexter is a great show as well.

    Different genre, but wife and I started watching Parenthood a week or two ago. Great show.
