Baltimore drug scene, seen through the eyes of drug dealers and law enforcement. (59 mins.)
“ Still the best TV series ever made. It has the hardest (no pun intended (why would that be a pun!? Oh never mind...)) homosexual character of all time - Omar. Who also happens to be my favourite character of all time. When Omar comes, its best to give it all up... (No pun intended) ” - sosvovenon

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X  
The Kingdom is the most technologically advanced hospital in Denmark, a gleaming bastion of medical science... (286 mins.)
“ A strange mixture of horror, comedy and absurdity from Denmark. Its not for everyone, but I love it. Von Trier may not be a good film-maker, but he knew how to make TV back then... ” - sosvovenon
 
3.
Southland (2009 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.5/10 X  
The lives of Police Officers working for the Los Angeles Police Department. (42 mins.)
“ The only cop series that comes close to contending with The Wire, in my opinion. The cast, the characters, the story, the surprises are all great. I just wish they could add some more social commentary. ” - sosvovenon
 
4.
Extras (2005 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X

“ It doesn't have the darkness and awkwardness of The Office, but it still has a similar style. I never laughed so hard at anything on TV before this. Its very honest. ” - sosvovenon
 
5.
Parks and Recreation (2009 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X  
The absurd antics of an Indiana town's public officials as they pursue sundry projects to make their city a better place. (22 mins.)
“ This is one of the most amusing American TV-shows right now. Perhaps the most funny, even. It has an outstanding cast of characters - every one of them my favourite, almost... The only thing I don't get are the strange deviations from the "mockumentary" point of view. Is it a sitcom, or a mockumentary? Make up your minds, please... ” - sosvovenon

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.1/10 X  
Percy Nilegaard has gone insane and goes to a shrink called Dr J. Tull. He tells the doctor the story of how he took over another mans life... (171 mins.)
“ The second part of the epic series of TV-shows produced by the "Killing Gang" in Sweden. It is slightly better than the first series, known as "Nilecity 105,6" Basically the whole series feels like a commentary on what it meant to be alive in Sweden in the nineties. ” - sosvovenon
 
7.
The Sopranos (1999 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.2/10 X

“ The show that started it - american TV-shows with script, characters and production that beats most films made for the movie theatre. Some of the characters may feel a little cliché in hindsight, but I watched this entire series once on TV, and then once again on DVD... It was a worthwile experience both times. ” - sosvovenon
 
8.

Nine noble families fight for control over the mythical lands of Westeros, while a forgotten race returns after being dormant for thousands of years. (56 mins.)
“ I disliked the books that this series is based on. The story and the characters are good, but the writing is very poor. I especially dislike how the dialogue is written. Imagine my surprise when it all turned out to be one hell of a TV-series! ” - sosvovenon
 
9.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X  
Percy Nilegaard collects Swedish single men and embarks on a bus trip to Tallinn with a so-called "highly-experienced driver". (59 mins.)

“ I'm just kidding... One friend of mine said "when I see this on TV I feel like vomiting"
A reasonable reaction to this Series... A retarded jellyfish with a camera attached to it would probably have produced something better and more fun than this. And that is an insult to retarded jellyfish. ” - sosvovenon
