    Hey!

    I watch most of the shows you watch! And did you see the latest episodes of DC and flash??

    I'm shocked that you haven't watched Supernatural. Having watched over 30 shows or so, i Can honestly say that It is by far the best! It's ratings on IMDB speak for itself but it is just amazing. Like the plot is always changing and intense and imaginative. the characters are absolutely AMAZING! Before you start watching though, be prepared for alot of tears. Oh and there is 11 seasons but trust me its worth it. Sometimes you have to stick with it like during the 6/7 season, but PLEASE just give it a try.

    I would also recommend grimm-similar to supernatural but it is just fantastic. I could talk about all the shows i'm recommending all day, but you just to the research.

    Other shows :
    Greys anatomy - don;t even get me started! If i do , i would probably start getting emotional but ughhh this shows takes you on an emotional rollercoaster.
    Teen wolf- Great plot and stiles is just adorable.Each epsiode is packed with mystery,drama,suspense...
    Limitless-sunny, interesting and unique
    Blindspot
    agents of shield
    izombie
    Once upon a time-Sooo clever
    Switched at birth-Drama and so unpredictable, oh you can also learn a bit of sign language

    Also need some recommendations! So if you've got any please tell em !

    Damn, you have all the good shows still ahead of you. This is a partial list of the canon of the Golden Age of Television. Start with Breaking Bad, that can pop your cherry in terms of being inducted into more sophisticated and more stimulating (and addictive) TV shows

    The Americans
    Mr Robot
    Breaking Bad
    Master of None
    Game of Thrones
    The Outs
    Halt and Catch Fire
    The Sopranos
    The Wire

    I don't want to sound too pretentious, but these are the kind of shows that people who love television as a medium and have broadly sophisticated tastes watch, and having seen them is a marker (a shibboleth, as such) between such people that you know you're with a like-minded person.

    They work both on the level of being addictive and interesting in terms of plotting, but also work on a much higher literary level of complex and fascinating characterisation as well so they appeal to both low-brow and high-brow viewers

    Peaky Blinders - Season 3s currently on atm
    Daredevil - Because you seem to like superhero themed shows and this is a really good one especially season 2
    Sens8 - Its a really original concept and they've portrayed the idea really well
    Vikings
    ArrestedDevelopment (for a sitcom)
    Breaking Bad
    Luther - Based on a Sherlock Holmes type character
    Heroes (You can catch up in time for the new reboot series)
    Mr Robot - It has one hell of a plot twist

    How is Breaking Bad sophisticated? There's no complex writing or anything literary. For my "high brow" tv I look at Downton Abbey and Penny Dreadful. Amazing acting, storylines and cast with the full literary works.

    GOT - I don't like it
    Sopranos - doesn't seem that great

    I've never seen any of the others.

    Okay. Others I'd recommend are American Horror Story, Grey's Anatomy, House, Lie To Me, Misfits, Skins and The Inbetweeners.

    Yeah I'm annoyed that I have to wait until October to see any new episodes with any of them. It's ashame they stop in the summer. Flash, Arrow, legends :zomg:

    Supernatural isn't bad but I feel like it doesn't take itself seriously and I don't like that. It's the style of show I like. I rather Sleepy Hollow to Supernatural, it's a lot scarier too.

    As for teen wolf, I can't stand these high school shows.
    I think agents of shield is boring. Did you mention Daredevil? I think it's boring along with Jessica Jones.
    Greys is not my type of show either. It's good but it wouldn't captivate me.
    I watched switched at birth already, it's too high school but it isn't bad either.

    Never seen iZombie, limitless or blindspot, I'll check it out.

    You seem to be confusing the fact Downton Abbey is about aristocrats with it being high-brow. :lol:

    Downton Abbey is a soap opera, it's just filmed with a single-camera set-up with decent equipment giving the appearance of quality drama; that says little about its artistic value.

    And unfortunately like most UK "prestige" dramas, it is years behind prestige US productions from the likes of AMC, HBO and FX in the quality of the writing and even the technical accomplishment and cinematography (single exception to that perhaps being Wolf Hall)

    The fact it's not a multi-cam production like Eastenders doesn't mean it's not, at its base, based on the same breathless, cliffhanger-esque soap opera principles that appeal to less sophisticated minds.

    Re Game of Thrones, Sopranos and Downton, I think you've made the quality of your aesthetic and artistic discernment quite clear

    Oh and also Being Human (the UK version) its been a long time since i=I've watched it but I remember it being enjoyable, and also The Office (US Version) for a Mockumentary type series
