Justified-not sure if on Hulu but not on Netflix

Louie

Orange is the new Black

BSG

House of Cards

the Killing is a fave of mine but people hate the slow somber pacing of it. It is well done with great actors. Sad to see it is cancelled..season 3 was good.

I wouldn't recommend people to watch Dexter, past season 4 it's a shade of its former self.

 

season 5 was incredible

If you want to watch something with a lot of seasons to watch then based on what you left off your list it is not even close, watch The Sopranos.

 

If you are cool with watching a newer series with only one season under its belt then watch House of Cards.

I forgot Shameless on Showtime. William H. Macy is great and this is some dark, hilarious poo. I think they're thru 3 seasons and 4 starts later this year or January.

 

Highly recommend.

 

I love that show.  Plus, it is on at the perfect time of year for me.  If is a great break between my two favorite, Boardwalk Empire in the Fall and Game of Thrones in the Spring.

Yeah Shameless (american version) is good, but I agree it's really best since it comes out at a time of the year where only a few things are on.   I will say last season of Shameless was much better than season 2, so that's good.

Can't go wrong with Sopranos.

 

For comedies, go watch the British version of the office. It's only two seasons but a classic.

 

Always Sunny is the best comedy ever I think.

 

I also liked entourage. It will not win any awards but it was fun.

Most everything is covered already, but depeding on how you get your shows, watch the first couple seasons of Misfits.  It's a UK show and Season 1 and 2 are both pretty fun.   3 and 4 aren't bad, just not as good.

The Walking Dead. just in time for you to catch up before the new season starts up in roughly a month. 

 

Orange is the new black on Netflix was surprisingly pretty damn good. I thought it was gonna be some stupid chick show, but it was great. You can also "binge" on it because the entire 1st season is on Netflix.

 

Homeland, IMHOis the best show on TV that doesn't come on AMC. We just got season 2 and there's a good chance we finish it up tonight. Plus, it's filmed exclusively in Charlotte. There is a long scene filmed in a church in the first season, I attended a wedding in that very church a few years ago. It's cool seeing stuff like that. 

 

 Also, I was a huge fan of Extras with Ricky Gervais. My type of dry humor. The entire series is 2 seasons + a TV movie finale, so you can blow through it quickly. It is a British comedy though so you have to not mind an accent and British humor. 

 

I am a big fan of My Name is Earl. Criminally underrated. 

 

EDIT:

 

Just to add a few things...

 

My girlfriend right now is hooked on Scandal starring Kerry Washington. It comes on ABC and is available on Netflix or Hulu Plus. I tried watching a few episodes and it doesn't really do it for me but it may be one of those shows I have to start from the beginning. 

 

House of Cards is good, as it centers around a politician from Gaffney SC, but it did lose me a little bit. It never truly "hooked" me, but I still think it's a watchable show. My GF fell asleep several times watching it with me, and I think that's why we don't watch it anymore. I liked it (didn't love it), she didn't care for the show. It did get boring a few times and Kevin Spacey's southern accent is insulting. But it's still better than a lot of stuff that's out. 

 

The Sopranos is obviously one of the best shows ever made and you are doing yourself a disservice if you've never watched it. The last 3 seasons aren't as good but the first two seasons alone is some of the best TV you will ever see.
