Um... Hart of Dixie is good fluff. Covert Affairs is CIA but also good fun. Are you into supernatural stuff at all? Because there are some cracking shows out there.

Devious Maids -- which is made by the creator of Desperate Housewives and is supposedly in the same style.

Devious maids is made by the same guy so looking forward to that. Was looking at revenge - any good?

Well, speaking as someone who liked Desperate Housewives, I hated Revenge (the first two episodes anyway, as I quit after that). I would recommend Nashville, though.

Its like were waiting for the next big thing to come out of the US, as in all the hype of lost and housewives, but nothing has recently.
I am looking forward to dracula though.

The Good Wife and Suits are good for lawyerly stuff with good back stories of the characters involved.

Pushing Daisies is very quirky and unusual.

Arrested Development is hilarious, but there are various encounters with police officers and prison officers..

Ray donovan and orange is the new black are both brilliant. By far 2 of the best shows to come out of the states in years

Newsroom: not as good as The West Wing but a bit less deluded and self-important than Studio 60.
