    I've narrowed it down to these shows, which would you recommend the most?

    Deadwood
    Rome
    The Pacific
    Spartacus
    Boardwalk Empire
    Skins (British version)
    American Horror Story
    Shameless
    Californication

    Cool, I am a big Band of Brothers fan, so might go with The Pacific first.

    Have you seen Deadwood? A lot of people rave about this show and I watched the first episode and it was kinda boring to be honest. Now I don't expect every good show to get you hooked from the start and I know you need to be patient with some shows, but every show I've ever gotten into, I was never bored by the first episode.

    I actually haven't seen any of these (other than American Horror Story).

    AHS is pretty hardcore at times. I liked the way it started in the pilot episode, but I never cared much for it. I did finish the first season... not much interest in starting up the 2nd.

    Boardwalk Empire
    The Pacific
    Shameless

    Those are the ones from that list I've been wanting to see the most.

    I have Showtime, so as soon as I wrap up some other shows, I'll start Shameless.

    Ever read the book?

    Freaking amazing. The stuff thats left out is nuts. (Like Dick Winters breaking someones back in a friendly wrestling match)


    Highly suggest it if you like to read.
