    You're really missing out.
    The creators of The Wire have started a new show called Treme based in New Orleans and how music is helping people get their lives back to normal.

    I am young! But I dont know anyone else my age that has seen, let alone likes Yes, Minister.

    It's a cracker. Some of the monologues show how intricate the English language is. Plus, the things that happen in Yes, Minister happy every day in Australia's government.

    The Wire is correctly acknowledged as the best TV series there has ever been.

    You could always do Generation Kill (what they did after the Wire) and then go back when you realise what a chump you've been

    The wire is awesome, best show I've seen since Deadwood.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm, West Wing, Mad Men, Extras

    My fave shows are:

    - Frontline
    - The Games
    - the Micallef Show
    - Blackadder
    - Fawlty Towers
    - Arrest Development
    - D Gen LAte Show

    - Have most the Entourage series on DVD but am a bit over it. Although I still think this is may be my fave tv moment:

    Of current shows? Gee Breaking Bad is unique and very watchable. If you want something different, that's pretty damn good.

    Entourage is all about Ari Gold, he's fucking brilliant. Got a bit softer in the later series but I watched some of the early stuff and he's ruthless

    I love Entourage, but only for Ari. Grade A lunatic, and funny as hell. And probably not 100 miles from reality.

    Big fan of Entourage. Looking forward to the new season, a shame the later ones don't involve a little more Ari.

    The Good Wife is a decent new show if you haven't seen it, has some good story lines. Law & Order SVU is another good one. Nip Tuck too is good, although has some story lines which probably shouldn't have been touched on.

    Try Lead Balloon from BBC Entertainment. It's kinda like Extras.
