I really need a new show. I have now watched quite a bit.

Supernatural
Breaking Bad
Justified (my favorite)
Game of Thrones
Misfits
Lost
Heroes (only Season 1)
Person of Interest
The Walking Dead
Spartacus

Might be forgetting one or two. Whats important for me is a good story but still quite of bit of "get you off your seat action", with great character chemistry being one of the most important things, hence Justified and Game of Thrones being my favorites.

I have tried the Pilots of:

Arrow - A bit too corny. Usual I like corny, but to me it just seems like theres no plot, that it relies TOO MUCH on action.
Sons of Anarchy - Simply uninteresting to me, no drama at all, seems like mindless running around.
The Americans - Pretty good but didnt have that IT FACTOR that drew me in.
The Following - Too hard to believe, kinda dumb story.
True Detective - BORINGGGGG.
Vikings - Not a fan of the acting.

But none have really drawn me in all that much. Should I stick with one or more of them? Im also thinking of trying Penny Dreadful, has anyone seen that?

You found True Detective boring? Shame on you :coffee:

Anyway you can try

Fargo
House Of Cards
The Wire
Hannibal
The Sopranos
Mad Men
Sherlock
Luther
Entourage

Seeing your list, I personally recommend you to watch Fargo first.

Well to be fair, when my favorite shows are Justified and Game of Thrones that sets the bar pretty high. So usually I have to be at least quite a bit interesting with some action in the first episode. I probably should start giving shows more of a chance.

Thanks for the recommendations. I have also tried House of Cards but it seems to me like theres no action. And I refuse to watch the Sopranos. Im Italian from NJ. I hate that stereotype. I will try Fargo and let you know though.

I think you gave up way too early on some of those shows Laughing

Just about all of those you named turn out to be excellent shows. Some will just take longer than others to find their groove.

And yes GOT and Justified have set the par extremely high. You may need to temper your expectations on a few of these.

Yeh try Fargo. Lots of action, simple storyline, not dialogue driven and also has suspense. Similar to BB.
