What should my parents watch next?


My parents aren't big TV-watchers. They don't really watch any traditional once-a-week shows, except for maybe Dancing with the Stars. But I've gotten them hooked on TV on DVD. They've gone through Bones and just finished The West Wing. They liked the former well enough, but they LOVED the latter. What should I have them watch next? I have a few ideas but I'm curious to see what you all think.

Mad Men!!! Mad Men!!!

The Tudors is great but pretty risque. We loved it. Rome is good but really violent. Breaking Bad is *FANTASTIC*. Some seasons of Dexter are very good. Arrested Development is one of the best comedy series in the history of television. Peep Show (BBC) is very adult but absolutely hilarious. Some more BBC: State of Play miniseries (don't get the US movie version), Life on Mars, cop show+some almost sci-fi elements, great stuff, but DO NOT get the US remake. Foyle's War is really excellent WWII-era police drama.

Hope that helps :)

Forgot to say -- we love Dancing with the Stars and can't wait for the new season! :)
