Default TV Series

Hi everyone!
I’m a huge fan of tv series, I really love watching series and as summer is approaching and I have extra time on my hands I want suggestions. My taste is pretty broad, I watch (or watched) things like Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl, Veronica Mars (really old but my favorite), Gilmore Girls (even older), House, etc.
I’d really appreciate suggestions!

True Blood?... Although you'd have to start from the beginning and the new season just started on the 16th.

You've already listed a lot of what I would so no new suggestions other than TB, lol. Sorry!

During the summer, different TV series air than the other more popular ones. Right now, I'm enjoying watching Longmire. I wasn't an avid watcher of the Dr. Who series but I'm now on Season 1 Episode 3 and I'm enjoying it thus far. I guess I have all summer to catch up before the premier. I also started watching Mad Man. I LOVE Game of Thrones - gonna be a long wait for that premier. My fall series are Criminal Minds, Big Bang Theory, Heartland (altho I need to catch up on BBT and Heartland as I wasn't avidly watching last season - another summer to do).

Anyways my husband and I also love Burn Notice, Big Bang Theory, Once Upon a Time, and Grimm! To name a few.

Firefly, House of Cards (Netflix only), White Collar, Psych, Luther (BBC), Walking Dead are a few of our favorites. We only watch shows on Netflix or Amazon so basically we run through a series once we decide we like it. Except for Psych, which we own the DVDs.

Kristen Bell already had her baby. I forget the baby's name...but it had to do with a car. Lincoln?

You might like Bunheads if you liked Gilmore Girls. Same creators, and quite a few Gilmore Girls characters made appearances. (Kirk, Gypsy, Emily Gilmore, Paris)
