    Hey, well I'm a big fan of Prison Break, Lost and Heroes. Since all of them have stopped airing for now I wanted to know if there are more shows like these. I really enjoyed watching all of three of them. Give me some suggestions thanks. Also, how is the show Supernatural?

    Well for starters I like your taste in Shows(PB & Lost) But anyway I think you may like Travler & Sleeper Cell if you like those three both are cancelled but was very good. Also as far as Supernatural goes I don't Watch it but I here its pretty good.

    Supernatural is awesome. They have really great storylines, and the leading two characters are amayzing. They're currently going on their fourth season.

    well....if you don't mind a little science fiction you should definetely check out Battlestar Galactica (the new version) its another serialized drama like the ones you mentioned and its amazing (acting,writing,effects are all emmy worthy).

    well i like all them too!!! i can also recommend the 4400, theres 4 seasons of that for you to catch up on. i had nothing to watch and was in the same boat as you. Also 2 seasons of jericho i loved that even though i thought it wasnt my thing but i really enjoyed that . another one you should like is the dresden files, i am just watching the last episode now and have really really enjoyed that . also journeyman theres 1 season of that. if i think of anymore ill let ya know .

    happy watching

    You could try renting Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, since you like Lost and Heroes. Buffy and Angel both are character-centric shows with ongoing storylines. You could also try Battlestar Galactica, and Burn Notice.

    trust me supernatural is a fun show but there are better things out there to see first. Plus after the second season of supernatural I think the story really started to loose it luster.

    Supernatural is good but don't expect something as great as Prison Break or Lost, it's nowhere near as good as those shows.Battlestar galactica is though, but it is a real sci fi show so you have to be open to that.
    More in the line of Prison break I would recommend 24, you can watch the first season and stop after that if it's not your thing, it stands on his own, or you can watch as many seasons as you like.

    If you like Lost, you should probably check out Fringe, Another J.J. Abrams creation. It's not quite up to the creative level of Lost, but it's worth checking out. And you'll be surprised at some of the similarities between the two shows, even composer Michael Giacchino using some of the exact same compositions from Lost in the Fringe pilot episode.

    Agreed, though Weeds has taken a down turn the past two seasons.

    I watched the pilot of "Persons Unknown" today and it looks likes it's going to be awesome.

    Also: Supernatural, Doctor Who (5th series with the new Doctor is awesome),

    I like Lost and Heroes and 24 ; but they are by far not my favorite shows. They are kinda overrated.

    I'd say ; try to watch Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy, The Good Wife or Bones. You wont be dissapointed. Also Veronica Mars.

    Lost Heroes and 24 are not overrated and about the other ones you have mentioned bones is the only good one you got a bad taste in tv shows
