What television series would you recommend to someone to start from scratch?

For instance, I’ve never watched Lost but I don’t think I could handle 7+ years or whatever it was of shows mainly because I heard the show ended up like X-Files where the creators were kind of winging it.

Any suggestions?

Dead like Me - both comedy and serious, starring Mandy Patinkin... i think its fairly highly rated on IMDB too and its really worthy to watch - i think it has more than entertainment value.

The Event, Surface, Flash Forward, Invasion, Odyssey 5, Threshold - all 6 sci-fi, all 6 great IMHO and all 6 canned after the first season. That can be a positive too, at least they stopped at their best and you dont have to watch following seasons most likely full of mediocrity and recycled ideas

not quite a TV series, but. awesomes.

 

Here is what Dante Basco (TV and movie actor, writer, producer), has to say about it:

"I truly find this whole “Homestuck” amazing… It’s something I’ve never seen before. It’s like a book or a comic, only it’s not a book or a comic… it’s something new. It’s like an entirely new way of telling a story. I’m reading this story on the internet, learning what’s going on through pictures of these characters and their “IM” conversations… There is no other time in history that a story like this could be told and in this way, except for now… That’s kind of amazing."

I'd recommend FringeJohn Noble is brilliant.

Also Heroes. Season 1 was one of the best sci-fi/fantasy tv series I've ever seen. Don't watch other seasons, it's a waste of time (at least was for me).

I would recommend the latest adaption of Sherlock Holmes. Its a Miniserie with 3x90min episodes per season. Absolutly brilliant. Cumberbatch (Holmes) and Freeman (Watson) are fantastic.

Agreed, GREAT series. It's Holmes in all the good ways, and modern in all the good ways.

Thats true. First i was very sceptical. I´m a big Holmes-Fan since my teenage years, when i read the books. It was like "Holmes with iphone and internet? wtf! That can´t be good" But it works perfect. And Cumberbatch is one of the best Holmes i´ve ever seen.

Firefly for sure.

 

Babylon 5 (have to watch the first 5-6 episodes before it starts to get better. A lot is building for the 5 season series and it really is worth it.

 

Fringe is a good show as described above.

 

Jericho (another show that was canceled after a year or so that was good).

 

Cowboy Bebop is excellent (1 season)

 

Farscape is very excellent (4 seasons)

 

All sorts of neat stuff out there!!!

 

yeah farscape wasn't to shabby,you don't mention the peace keeper wars that part was made two years later to end the story as season 4 was ended incomplete.
