Default Looking for recommendations on what to watch next

Ok, just a little bit of background before I ask my question. I work half my day from appointments and half from home. My work takes a long time, but doesnt require masses of my attention, and thus I have gone through a heck of a lot of TV series and films to keep me occupied.

Therefore, I am looking for recommendations as to my next watch. I mainly like Scifi and fantasy series, but I do also like procedural police shows as well. Below is a list of the series I have watched (and liked) from start to finish, plus also a list of shows I dont like.

And I would love someone to recommend a fantastic programme to keep me occupied for a few weeks:


Scifi
Star trek (all series)
Stargate SG1
Andromeda
Ghost in the shell
Fringe
X-files
Futurama
Star Wars clone wars (both)

Fantasy
Buffy
Angel
Xena
Hercules
Merlin
Robin Hood

Procedural
Bones
NCIS Los angeles
House

Shows I dont like
24
Heroes
Lost
Stargate universe
Stargate atlantis
Firefly
Band of brothers


So - fire away - +rep for someone who finds something I love.

To prevent any 'misunderstandings' if I post IN ORANGE then I am joking.
Thank you

Star Wars The Clone Wars? Dont judge it by reviews (prequel haters?) or by just watching a few episodes. Watch all the three seasons thus far and you will love it! (Or at least find a few episodes you do, I damn hated all the politics that half of season three was all about. )

Perhaps you could watch any of the CSI shows for procedural. Would have recommended Bones if it wasn't already up there. One show I think is pretty good is Supernatural. There is a new sci-fi series called Falling Skies. The 2 hour pilot aired on Sunday. It was pretty good. Not sure what channel it comes on though. I think it's on channel 40? Not sure, i'll have to check up on it.

I see you have Fringe and the X-Files up there. Me and my mom enjoy both. Ghost in the Shell is also excellent. Was into House for a time, then I watched other shows. Same went for Stargate SG-1. Buffy I watched a lot. Still watch Futurama. Great shows you have up there.

Terminator TSCC Haven't seen it. Might have to check up on this.
Game of Thrones Another good one. Too bad Season one was 10 episodes and the next season doesn't come on until next spring.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

R.I.P. Uncle Lee. You will be greatly missed by us all. We will see each other again some day.

Also, a really random sci-fi show would be "The Event".

-NCIS (the original one; I personally like it better than the LA one, but both are good)
-Dresden Files (books are better, but read them after you watch the series)
-Sanctuary
-Ghost Whisperer (kind of watches like Buffy, but without the action, so not as fun)
-CSI
-CSI: New York
-White Collar
-Burn Notice
-In Plain Sight
-Monk
-The Walking Dead (if you like zombies and the comic book series)

Sci-fi-ish and or Fantasy-ish Animes
-Tokyo Majin (I just started it myself and it's proving interesting)
-Gurren Lagan (AMAZING AMAZING anime)
-Cowboy Bebop
-Scrapped Princess
-FLCL (aka. Fooly Cooly...more of a mind fuck and trip than anything with great animation)

I can't think of anything else right now...I might come back and edit.

Edit: Almost forgot
-Eureka (really really good)
-Warehouse 13 (watched the first 2 episode and thought it was pretty funny and good)

Looking for work....

Current project(s) with plog(s): None ATM
Upcoming project(s): Plague Hulk

Recently finished project(s): Warboss 2, Lord Hector Rex

-CSI Very good show.
-CSI: New York Enjoyed it. Still enjoy it.
-White Collar
-Burn Notice Heard good things about this one as well.
-In Plain Sight
-Monk Heard good things about it.
-The Walking Dead (if you like zombies and the comic book series) The family tried getting into it. We saw about half or over half of the first season, then we stopped watching it for some reason. It was pretty good.

Sci-fi-ish and or Fantasy-ish Animes
-Tokyo Majin (I just started it myself and it's proving interesting)
-Gurren Lagan (AMAZING AMAZING anime)
-Cowboy Bebop
-Scrapped Princess
-FLCL (aka. Fooly Cooly...more of a mind fuck and trip than anything with great animation) Another mind fuck anime is Higurashi no naku koro ni. Anyone here who watches anime should watch it. Very bloody also.

I can't think of anything else right now...I might come back and edit.
I knew I forgot something. Sanctuary is a pretty good sci fi series. Good choices in that list.
Hmm. Other good choices... I see you don't have LoTR up there. Epic series. Loved every movie. If you've watched it, good. If not, I think you should watch it.
Two other things I can recommend are A Haunting, and The Simpsons if you haven't seen it.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

Definitely Burn Notice,

For humour,
South Park
American Dad
Family Guy

If your into anime, "death note" is very addictive
