Im looking for a new series to get into, but my problem is my concentration is awful so unless i'm gripped early I give up, I've watched peaky blinders, GOT, The blacklist, Orphan Black (Amazing series for anyone who hasn't watched it), stranger things, all the main stream series that are heavily advertised but I want something new any recommendations?


{Ed001's Note - Lucifer? I love that show.}

ive watched series one of Lucifer, it was more of a programme I could just watch in the background but it was enjoyable, have you watched supernatural ed?

{Ed001's Note - yes and it was crap for pre-pubescent girls to get excited over the leads, imo. Awful stuff.}

Give American Odyssey a try, only made one series unfortunately but an awesome show. Could also give Newsroom a try.

{Ed001's Note - Newsroom is good, I agree on that. What is American Odyssey? Man In The High Castle is an interesting concept, my parents have been watching that recently, I have only seen the pilot though myself, so couldn't tell you how good it is.}

American Odyssey its about soldiers coming across files about the big corporations being corrupt in regards to the war. Very interesting and can't recommend it enough.

I tried MITHC just couldn't get into it.

{Ed001's Note - is MITHC not very good then? Maybe I will leave it at just the pilot then! I have been trying to give Fear Of The Walking Dead a go lately, but I just find I can't stand any of the characters. I don't really care if they turn or not, so it is difficult to enjoy at all.

American Odyssey sounds good, I will have to give that a go.}

It just didn't hold my attention, only watched the first two episodes and gave up. Not seen FOTWD, don't think ill try it by the sound of it either. I'm currently working my way through big bang theory and my list of tv shows is getting bigger by the day!

{Ed001's Note - I detest BBT with a passion. One of the worst things I have ever had the misfortune to see.}

walking dead I've tried the first episode about 6 times and I can't get through it, its to slow for me.

man in the high castle I've heard is good but again I couldn't get into the first episode.

I think ill start Lucifer again because I got into it fairly quick but lost all interest in watching anything. having the concentration of a 5 year old is a nightmare haha!

{Ed001's Note - Fear of the Walking Dead is a little different from Walking Dead. Not really keen on either really though so I can understand you not liking it.}

ED001, big bang is my go to programme when i need something in the background good mindless tv!

Gotham's next on the list, either of you seen it?

{Ed001's Note - Big Bang is just annoying. It is defo mindless though. I am not a fan of Gotham, sat through the first season, but didn't enjoy it at all.}

im a big fan of gotham, and the flash.

gotham is very un-realistic but gritty and with some great characters.

also suits i'd highly recommend if either of you haven't given that a go?

{Ed001's Note - I can't stand the Flash, it is naff. Very old A-Team style trash.}

I think that's what I like about it, its so cheesy but when it all gets into time travel etc. I have no clue what i'm watching!

I may give modern family a go heard good things?

{Ed001's Note - never seen it.}

Would recommend Ray Donavan is a really good show that not many people I know watch. Also is peaky blinders any good? Got the box set for xmas but haven't bothered to start it

{Ed001's Note - Ray Donovan is excellent, I agree. I love Peaky Blinders personally.}

ray Donovan looks worth a go!

peaky blinders is incredible! Cylian Murphy plays his part perfectly can make you hate him and love him in seconds!

{Ed001's Note - RD is very good, starts well and carries on in the same vein.}

Daredevil was pretty awesome. Has just enough realism to it to make you enjoy it, yet still fictional enough to keep it exciting. Hard to go wrong with marvel to be fair.

{Ed001's Note - good thinking, shame they stopped that show after so few episodes.}
