Lost is decent
Sopranos is good

But is there anything good from the last 4 years excluding comedy?
I can't seem to get even through the pilot of the most series I try...
cliche's and bad acting being the main factors I guess

Try Office. I like it because its realistic, about situations that could happen in real life and how people react to them.

This is from the 90s but if you like british humour try the Jeeves and Wooster TV series.

Ok, im understating Lost a little bit, i mean im really looking forward to the ending.
But the point is, watching stuff doesnt really do it for me anymore lately, unlike just listening to music :)
So, if there is anything great out there im missing let me know.

Dexter i have tried, maybe should retry.
Office UK is pretty good, have seen that one. (US version is really crap i think)

Lately I've become completely addicted to Six Feet Under. Good dark comedy slash drama, real characters and development, sometimes a bit dark and cynical, but I have to admit liking it A LOT!

Otherwise, my number 1 series of all time is the unbeatable Twin Peaks. Nothing short of brilliant.

Also agree on The Office. I'm sorry for American fans of this series, but the only really funny one is the original, British version.

Current stuff I watch on maketunes-break: Fringe, Supernatural, The Big Bang Theory (a must if you're a geek like me), Californication, Flashforward, the remake of V, Sanctuary (pass on the webisodes, they tell all that story on the first real episodes).

Older stuff: Twin Peaks, the remake of Battlestar Galactica (awesome), Doctor Who, Torchwood, Jericho (continued now as a comic book series), The Pretender, X-Files, Nowhere Man.

Eagerly awaiting for the comeback of Lost.

Big Bang is very funny, and not declining yet to my surprise.

Battlestar G... what a trainwreck! I mean, it had its great moments, but if you look back at the story it's so random and plain dumb :(

Lost has its cheese, plotholes and cheap patches thereof.

This guy seems to have some taste, so leave him alone :)

There's no plotholes in Lost. Everything makes sense.
And considering how complicated the story is it leaves you speechless.

Not after the patches :) If those patches make sense and so are not really patches is subjective probably.
But whatever, its the most enjoyable running series!

You're dealing with the biggest Lost fanboy here. Don't except to say anything bad! :D

On topic:
Ppl at my work love Boston Legal. I never watched it, but I'd like to give it a try.
