    Default Cable tv show battle vol. 1 [dramas]

    yeah since Lost major network's serious dramas stepped up they game but thats perhaps for a different thread.

    what is/was your fav drama series on cable ? [HBO/SHO/STARZ/FX/AMC etc.]

    for me i would still have to go with THE WIRE although BREAKING BAD gives it a good run for its money.. both neck to neck quality wise but i guess i can relate more to The Wire since BODYMORE is helluva lot closer to NYC than ALBAKURKEE, NEW MEXICO lol.

    whats your illest show that can say FUCK on TV ?

    I was torn between Dexter and Spartacus but I gotta roll with Spartacus...show is just too crazy man. the fight scenes are off the meter.

    damn, tough choice.

    went with the Wire, not just because it hits close to home half my fam coming from there, but because it;'s fucking superb all around. production, direction, acting, story, etc.

    but goddamn, tough choice.

    sopranos, breaking bad, dexter, walking dead, boardwalk empire, sons notwithstanding (and the only ones i've seen tbh) all excellent series' though, that get major props, but yeah THE WIRE all day every day

    Homeland has gone down hill, and I don't know if they have much decent material left. On a side note, The Hitchhiker intro always creeped me out when I was younger, and still does.

    Got to mention The Prisoner too, one of my favourite ever shows! It's from the 60's but was way ahead of it's time and paved the way for lots of shows that would follow. There was a US remake in 2009 but doesn't compare to the original!
