so what's everyone got on their radars for 2013?

I've got some Arrow, Last Resort, and Elementary. And of course waiting on old favs to restart like BB, GoT, Walking Dead, etc

but is there anything totally new not happening in Aus yet worth looking at?

I'm not sold on any of the 'new' stuff, but aside from Game Of Thrones, I've got Californication (which is a little bit like flogging a dead horse) and Sons of Anarchy on my radar for '13.

I've just finished watching Walking Dead S2... man it was much s***tier than S1 was. and I hope 3 picks up quite a bit.

Last Resort got cancelled so you won't be watching it for long. I'm looking forward to seeing the final seasons of Breaking Bad and Dexter.

I'm not sure on Elementary, will give it a look to see what the yanks can do, just don't think it will be as good as Sherlock.

Banshee starts in a week or two, might be worth a look, its from the guys who made True Blood and Six Feet Under

I've just finished watching Walking Dead S2... man it was much s***tier than S1 was. and I hope 3 picks up quite a bit.


just skip to season 3 if you're not liking season 2. season 3 is f*****g awesome.

also the following and cult look kind of cool

Ooh Bates Motel looks great, like Smallville but about the villain. And the guy playing Norman Bates looks like the Sandy Hook school shooter.

Andre Braugher is a great Actor.

Breaking Bad jumped the shark after Gus got killed.

oh right. i only watched EP1 so far anyway. wasn't totally taken but was prepared to give it a few more eps to see.

i started SoA but it didn't grab me either. but from what i've heard it really gets going so i may revisit this one.

Others I've started and not followed through on are, Fringe, Boardwalk Empire, Warehouse 13. not because of interest just slackness. oh and another i liked was The Tudors, it's also in the not followed up cat but looked good the eps i did watch.

i really like Person of Interest, Homeland, WD 3, Dex, all up to date so will definitely be following the new seasons of these.

an oldy on our radar is The Sopranos. never really watched it in full so me and the wife have this scheduled in for 2013.

oh an Grimm gets an honourable mention, we enjoy it.

Theres already about six or seven episodes of it out if you want to check it out. Its not as good as Sherlock, but I still liked it. It probably took a couple of episodes for the characters to grow on me a bit and for me to stop comparing it to the Benedict Cumberbatch Sherlock Holmes, but after that I enjoyed it, I'm keen to see more of it. Has a completely different feel to the british one though, its more like a police procedural type show with Sherlock Holmes solving the cases.

Game of Thrones is probably top of my list, along with Arrow (which turned out so much better than I was expecting), and the final episodes of Breaking Bad and Fringe. Sons of Anarchy I'm a bit on the fence about, I thought the last season was a bit hit and miss. Had some really good bits, but other parts of the show are just starting to get stale, so hopefully they really mix it up a bit and keep it fresh next season. Also was disappointed they never found an excuse to have Pope scream out "WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLTTTTTTTTT"

Oh and I'm kinda curious to see how that Sci-fi show with the MMO tie-in works too, Defiance I think its called?

Other shows I'm currently watching:

Community (heartily recommend, greatest comedy ever (besides Arrested Development))

First ep was great and not exactly what I was expecting, but still very entertaining.

It doesn't capture the tension of pyscho but it's looking to still be a decent origin story.

I was going to say, hadn't seen Community mentioned much but it came up towards the end, I heartily recommend it. One of the funniest shows on TV.

Other then that, Walking Dead, Homeland, HIMYM, Futurama - I haven't had time to get into anything else.

I still need to watch Breaking Bad, Broadwalk Empire, Bored to Death, then get into the rest.

@Mantorok Yes! I have been watching Archer, totally forgot it. It's awesome, I need to start on S4.

I also left out Party Down which I thought was pretty funny, only 2 seasons.

talking about community?

how about it completely lost its way and the funny?

the first season was awesome, some of the best sitcom ive watched.

season two started out strong, finished completely wtf.

season three was s***, it barely survived being cancelled.

season 4 has been ok, it wont be back for season 5 unless they can pick it up though is my prediction.

been briefly mentioned by a couple of people in this thread but the new history channel show, vikings, is pretty rad. rape and pillage a plenty.

very loosely based on the viking hero Ragnar Lothbrok who was pretty boss, he actually raided and captured Paris in 845.

my first thoughts were "vikings and history channel, ugh," but it's actually quite good. main guy is australian too.

I enjoyed Hell on Wheels.

We met Colin Ferguson (Eureka) in the Virgin Lounge in Adelaide on Monday. Cool dude we had a good chat.

I told him we'd "bought" the series and were only up to Season 3, he reckons 4 & 5 were their best.

He was heading back to LA for a casting call. Also told us the guys from Warehouse 13 were there doing some promo.

Was a fun experience except not many friends or rellies know who he is so the story falls flat. Heathens!
