TV show recommendations?
« on: May 24, 2010, 01:03:56 am »
It's not like I need to waste more time watching tv, but if I do, I want to waste it on something good.

So, which tv shows do you prefer, and why?

Dr. Who. Funny, interesting, and great for passing time.

Glee (funny)
Pushing Daisies (cute and funny)
Antiques Roadshow (um, I'm secretly old)
House (who can resist Laurie?)
The Office (funny!)

That show about Tucson. It's okay, even if it isn't the real deal it gives a good feel for non-natives.

Also, wrestling, and um, Chowder, Ugly Americans, Adventure Time With Finn and Jake (fucking kick ass highly recommended), Um.
Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial increases in corpse production.

Hmm, Supernatural is pretty cool, the first season's good, but it gets great after that. pretty much, and action/comedy with demons, werewolves and the like.

Burn Notice is good too, plus you may learn something (about explosives, torture, espionage, that kinda stuff). I'm not sure if everything they say is true, but the most of the stuff I know about they seemed to know how it works.

Also, Dr Who was good, but I haven't seen the new series yet, so I can't comment on the new Dr.
It's not trolling, it's just satire.

Fringe is good.  It's the X-Files of the 21st century.
The Jerk On Bike rolled his eyes and tossed the waffle back over his shoulder--before it struck the ground, a stout, disconcertingly monkey-like dog sprang into the air and snatched it, and began to masticate it--literally--for the sound it made was like a homonculus squatting on the floor muttering "masticate masticate masticate".

And Castle is pretty fun, though some of the episodes make me want to slit my wrists they're so bad.

I haven't actually gotten a chance to watch it, but it's Nathan Fillion and it HASN'T been cancelled yet, so that's a plus.

almost any HBO series....like, six feet under, the sopranos, deadwood, true blood, rome

been digging the tudors, and just finish lost.

I wouldn't really bother with lost though tbh. the whole series is just one moment of "WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON!?!?!?" after another. They did wrap it up at the end, but a lot of people are pissed at the finale tonight.
