Anyone have any good recommendations for a good tv series to download? I'm starting to run out of ideas. My taste generally runs in comedy, but I wouldn't mind some other suggestions as well.
Currently I'm watching (in no particular order) :
outsourced
top gear
how I met your mother
modern family
family guy
futurama
american dad

I am watching "Criminal Minds" - based on the police use of profiling. Sort of thinking mans CSI  mmmmmmmmmm so it sure is not comedy.

No TV where I am so it is helping while away the hours.

One show I got into just before I got here was Better off Ted. It's a very underrated comedy series, and kind of has an Arrested Development tone to it. It centers around the personalities who work for an evil American defense contractor a la Raytheon, or General Dynamics. If you like Adult Swim type stuff you should check out Venture Bros. and Frisky Dingo, those are my personal favorites.  For drama I strongly second the suggestion of Breaking Bad and The Wire. Prepare to waste some serious time if you start watching those shows.

...top gear...

If you like Top Gear then you might like the work of Charlie Brooker, because Brooker is to television what Jeremy Clarkson is to cars.

Take a look at his recent series How TV Ruined Your Life (which is a kind of compilation of his best rants wrapped up and presented as a new series).  If you like that you can search for his older work Screenwipe and Newswipe.  All brilliant stuff in my opinion.

In a movie class, I chose to show Kyle XY. It helped with everyday conversation and social interaction. Interesting program.

I also like Weeds, eerily funny

Everything else I could name just sounds too obvious. Old Simpsons and Futurama. Trailer Park Boys has a certain appeal if you have a warped sense of humor. Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job, Archer (by the folks who brought you Frisky Dingo). I don't really watch drama besides The Wire and Breaking Bad.

Oh maybe The Walking Dead. That was a really good AMC series. Only 6 episodes of it but it rulz.  bfbfbfbfbf

Honestly sounds like you should be telling us TV shows.  bibibibibi
