    Banshee, Justified and The Americans are always shows I recommend to people as most haven't seen them and they deserve everyone to watch them.

    I loved Justified. I bounced off Americans for some reason, but most people rate it it, so might give it another try sometime.

    I'll fight anyone to the death Flash Gordon style that doesn't like the Americans.

    Does that mean we oil up before, after, or during?

    I wouldn't recommend Banshee to *everyone* - it does get extremely violent, and that's not to everyone's taste.

    Definitely agree with Justified and The Americans, though. The Americans is probably the best show I've watched in the last decade.

    The fight scenes have been brutal. The one with the cage fighter made me wince and the least said about the prison one, the better.

    The cage fighter one is pretty up there though, in terms of wincing.

    Only seen the first episode, but The Boys second season is off to a good start. It really takes no prisoners.

    Homelander may be the biggest dick in any tv series ever.

    Yup... might be my favourite show of all time now I think about it.

    No wait, that's Boardwalk Empire.

    Modern Family season1

    We missed these first time around, I was worried it was a knock off of one of the greatest US sitcoms, the sublime MitM.
    Due to waiting until its watch had ended, we have10 seasons to view. As an episode is approx 20 mins long it is perfect for when we are eating our dinner!

    Anyway, really enjoyed it, it is funny (the 2 female leads are hot, this helps of course!) and has a lot of "heart" (as sappy as that might sound) so many great characters (all the cast in fact) with my favs probably being Gloria, Manny and Phil.

    Couple of episodes of Season 2 tonight.

    Excellent.

    Perry Mason - Season One

    A slow burner but quite excellent. Set in the 1930s and quite lavishly designed. Matthew Rhys is fantastic as Mason. The supporting characters are all good too. It's starts slow but is worth sticking with. It's leaving NowTV today but still time for an epic binge.

    Certainly one for me, as I said US ones. I'm not a massive fan of US comedy, accepting that Curb is on another level, can't stand Seinfeld though. A lot of the other American "hits" leave me cold.
    But Bryan Cranston and Jane Kaczmarek are brilliant in Malcolm.

    Banshee is ace but extremely violent without saying too much the car fight scene is BRUTAL.

    @DUFFMAN5 Malcolm really challenged a lot of people. I'm absolutely amazed at how long it lasted, considering the subject matter and the fact that it didn't follow a lot of standard US comedy tropes

    - no laugh track
    - lower income family
    - not much dumbing down of jokes

    I haven't watched it in years and it probably isn't as funny as I remember but, in terms of US comedies, it always did its own thing. Certainly better than Scrubs or Everybody loves Raymond.

    I rewatched a fair bit of MitM a couple years ago, and it was still funny as when it first came out. Can't believe that was 20 years ago now.

    Yeah same. Think its got a weekend slot on 4music now. I watched a few recently, still pretty good. I think it had a dip in quality towards the end, but thats not exactly a surprise with long-running sitcoms.

    At the time, you would not have guessed the only person whod have a significant career afterwards would be Bryan Cranston.

    Didn't the Malcolm actor start a motorsports career afterwards?

    And yeah, I found it weird for a few years how Bryan Cranston became so famous for playing a character than was the complete opposite in tone to all the silly comedy early on in the career. And seeing him as Hal again after BB was also quite jarring!

    He developed some kind of brain condition that fucks with his memory apparently. He can't remember anything from filming the show.

    Scrubs has a lot of surreal humour and also gets more serious than a lot of non comedies. Also no laughter track. Fair play if you don't like it as much (I think it's far better) but it too isn't a typical US comedy, especially for the period.
