I've watched some of the original Shameless (UK) and didn't care too much for it.
With so many plots and subplots, Game of Thrones isn't really an action-oriented fantasy series. I have a strong preference towards the books. The TV series is more streamlined in comparison but misses the nuances of the books.
I'm waiting on the new season or half-season of Breaking Bad. Until then, I've been re-watching a few episodes of The Sopranos every now and then. I wanted to re-watch the show before James Gandolfini's death, but safe to say, his passing just accelerated my rediscovery of this fantastic show.
