    Thoughts?
    My recommendation for House over Grey's Anatomy is as automatic as a recommendation of cake over death.

    I couldn't have put it better myself.

    I'm a little dumbfounded that anyone could think House "soapy bullshit" but Madmen "great". Takes all sorts, I guess...

    Good effort (especially 'Twelve Monkeys'), but I have seen them all, and, apart from 'The American', none really fit the profile. Perhaps, to forestall frustration, I should add that my request might not have a valid answer.

    It doesn't think Zodiac is either... It's right.
    I guess it all depends how you get your thrills...

    I also recommend Capote, if you haven't seen it yet.

    Some thrillers you might like

    The Game, Tell No One-this one's French, so the English title is a translation, and Three Days of the Condor
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I already know 'The Game' and 'Three Days of the Condor', but the trailer for 'Tell No One' looks interesting enough.

    Thanks.
