Reccomendations for TV Show's Thread

Big Grin I need to brush up and spend a little time with my Analrapist before the CDP. I tried Philadelphia and just didn't get into it. But, probably didn't give it enough time.

I've lately been hooked on The Wire. Started last month, and am midway through season Four now. Best drama I've ever seen. When I finish Season Five, I'm cueing it right back up at 1/1 again.
I love Arrested Development as well. I have them all on DVD and have been thinking of watching them all again as of late.

Right now we are finishing up season 1 of Mad Men and waiting for season 2 to come out on DVD next week. We hope to be caught up in time for the season 3 premier next month. The show is fantastic for anyone who has not seen it.

Agreed. I like the show, my wife LOVES it.
I wish The West Wing was still on the air. Brilliant writing and acting - the cast really had chemistry. The same writing team sure flopped with Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, though.

I'm all about Mad Men now (wait, that didn't sound right...) and still love Top Chef.

Has anyone heard the latest on this? There have been rumors back and forth about it for years and I have been hoping it would work out. But, I have somewhat thought that it might be best to leave that show as the treasure that it is and just move on, though, too.

As funny as anything ever put on tv

You clearly have never seen Family Guy.


Oh, have you not heard? It was my understanding that everyone had heard...

(I said "as funny as"...not "funnier")
I don’t watch a ton of non sports TV, but these are on my current must watch list:

Lost (I can’t give up now!)
Entourage
Brotherhood
Damages (My current favorite show hands down)

I also watch Californication, Kitchen Nightmares (good call danny) and Top Gear when I catch them. I tried Breaking Bad and Mad Men but neither hooked me. I used to watch 24, but gave up during this season. Same story over and over and the worst cast of actors ever.

All time favorite shows are not very surprising, The Wire and Seinfeld. I watched the entire series of The Wire over the span of 3 weeks. I couldn’t stop. I think I’ll enjoy watching Seinfeld reruns forever.
Strongly agree on Mad Men & Arrested Developement.
As far as cancelled shows, the network suits are just as clueless as ever. To AD, add Pushing Daisies and Eli Stone this year. While not on the same level, they were different enough to be interesting, and something I could watch with the family.
God knows, we need room for more dancing and "reality" shows... Roll Eyes

What's currently on that I like besides Mad Men?
Saving Grace
Damages
Eureka

Yes. Best joke of the night "Your plastic surgeon is worse than Kanye West's mom's."

I thought that Giraldo was great, and Gilbert Gottfried was hilarious. Don Rickles always makes me laugh as well.

I too was a huge fan of The West Wing. Really awesome scripts and acting. You had to actually pay attention to the show to keep up with the plots. Last year when Hillary and Barack were dueling in the primaries I watched all 7 seasons on DVDs. It's very interesting to see how similar the Santos presidential campaigns of the West Wing was to real life.

I just started Mad Men, season 1. Enjoyable.

My friend is a Joss Weedon nut and turned me onto Dollhouse. The show is fantastic. It just got picked up for its 2nd season.

Another show that got cut that I loved was Boomtown. It only lasted 1+ Season. Frown


My co-worker thinks Weedon is a goldenboy, too. I've never understood the appeal. I've been a sci-fi nut ever since I was a kid, but neither Firefly nor Dollhouse could hold my interest. Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-Long Blog was pretty good, though.

Adding True Blood to my list. They just started showing the first season in London and we are hooked. Was not an Anna Paquin fan before this show, but she is perfect for this role. Been staying away from the True Blood thread so I don’t find out what happens….
I love Arrested Development. That was a great show and I hate that it never caught on. Easily the funniest thing on TV at the time.

I am a huge Simpson's fan. The new stuff isn't that great, but the first 9 seasons or so were glorious.

My wife and have really been enjoying Flight of the Conchords. I also enjoy Top Chef and Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which is hilarious. I hate to admit it, but I enjoy How I Met Your Mother. Without Barney though, that show would suck.
