Spartacus- exceptional tv
Orange is the new Black- tick
Modern Family- excellent writing and we all know similar people.
Strike back- season 3-4 excellent, season 1-2 was like that tame ITV drama 'soldiers'
Walking Dead, great idea and storyline, totally ruined by OTT scenes of zombie body parts for he sake of it.
Another vote for 'When the boat comes in' old telly but a real goody, might look really dated now though.
I also gave up on Boardwalk Empire, been done better by many others previously.
Massive Sherlock fan...so tried Elementary but didn't enjoy the pilot much, thought it was a bit naff and didn't like the Sherlock character....not a huge fan of a female Watson either.....
So for anyone that's watched it all...does it get better or is it all like the first one?
I really like elementary, much prefer it to Sherlock. Don't remember too much about the pilot but the series generally features on the development of Sherlock and watson's characters and their relationship. Albeit through the prism of criminal investigation.
Probably not much help to you, I'd say give it a chance but you need to just go with their conceit of making Watson female which changes the traditional dynamic somewhat although there's nothing sexual between them. In fact, there's more sexual tension between Holmes and Watson in the bbc's Sherlock.....
