    I love Las Vegas, Vanessa Marcil.....mmmmmm :)

    How about Burn Notice?

    Friday Night Lights is also great, even if you aren't particularly into American Football.

    You've listed my favourites (apart from Dexter) but I also like Sarah Conner Chronicles, Hustle and Shameless.

    Didn't like BSG...

    I've been meaning to get round to The Wire for ages but haven't yet!

    im with you, i love prisonbreak, lost and heroes, dexter as well but i prefer the first 3 more, would die if i missed one, but if you are looking for other good shows i think 24 is really good, as well as dr who or its spin off torchwood (if you like sci fi) but nothin will ever be as good as lost or prisonbreak if u ask me

    ps i see that other people are suggesting hustle and shameless, they are very good shows as well, if u like shameless, skins might also be worth a watch

    I'd recommend Psych as it's great, however you need to be able to get the humour in it to enjoy it.

    Another vote for 24 and you can buy the DVD boxsets pretty cheap now which is really the only way to watch it.
    also My name is Earl is good fun

    Has to be Chuck if you like a mix of comedy, action and romance with a really really hot female lead actress. Its essentially a show about a very very reluctant spy that gets himself co-opted in to the shadowy underworld due to a series of events earlier in his life. There is an underlying story arc to the show that comes more and more into focus as it continues. Chuck is'nt an all action hero and normally has to use his brain to outwit his enemies.

    This is the promo for S1

    This is the promo for S2 on Virgin as it gives you a decent feel as to how Chuck himself is and his struggles to become a better spy.

    Bravo has just started reshowing season 1 (just missed ep 1 unfortunately) at the moment at 8:00 GMT every day during the week at the moment, annoyingly that will only cover cable and satellite viewers. It is available very cheap on DVD at the moment and also at ITunes. Virgin 1 will start showing season 2 very soon (9th June at 9pm apparently) and that is accessible on freeview so the whole country has access. Season 3 starts in the US in Feb/March next year.

    I'd also look into Burn Notice (very very good S1 discs are out and S2 comes out in June I think while S3 starts in the US in June again) and probably also Pysch.

    Oh yes and Eureka is also well worth looking at if you enjoy Chuck. That is waiting for the second half of season 3 to start in July at the moment.
