Worth Watching TV Shows

posted by Profanity BANNED on - last edited - Viewed by 2.7K users
Hello.

So, you probably know that it's "off-season" for most (all?) of the currently running shows. That's why I want to hear some good shows, that I might not be aware off.

So far my list would be:
LOST
Dexter
X-Files
House
Big Bang Theory
Mad Men
The Office (It's horrible, don't even know why I keep watching it)
Supernatural
Numb3rs

I think that's it, if I'm not forgetting anything.

Enlighten me!

    Also, South Park? Comedy? Good one!
    Yeah, must be pretty shitty to win those Emmys all the time and maintain a huge viewership for almost 15 years, huh?

    I thought it was because they felt bad for the people creating it. The only thing admirable about the show is their intense production schedule which allows them to stay current.

    This particular way of arranging their schedule grants the episodes they produce a big amount of longevity and memorability, comparable of... goddamn evening news bullettin of any channel. Preferably FOX. People surely torrent that newage shit up nonstop.

    That, and creative use of animation style, lack of gratuitous exploitations of special guest stars, and writing. Obviously, you'd disagree, but a lot of people don't.
  • Huh, no love at all for How I Met Your Mother? I know it's a sitcom, but Neil Patrick Harris is amazing.

    I second Arrested Development too and based on this thread, I think I'll be checking out 30 Rock.

    Overhyped.

    Wait, what's wrong with it being a sitcom?

    Little Britain
    I rather liked the first Little Britain season, mainly because it did not cross my limit in terms of fecal and obscene humor. But come season two they introduced no less than four recurring gags/characters/skits which went way over the line. There's the grown engaged man who keeps being breast-fed by his mother and grandmother, there's the elite lady who would vomit exaggerated amounts of her stomach contents precisely on the most gross parts of her surroundings, then there's the overly fat woman who tries to have sex to pay her debts and gets naked whenever she can. It's just not funny.

    Please don't mind that I spoiled about 50% of the gags for you with that comment. :(

    Obv other stuff like the characters all becoming 2D caricatures and the fact it just isn't as funny as it was, but goddamn the product placement/addressing the viewer thing really got grating
    Yeah, it's called Flanderization, and I agree with you, though I never found the product placement thing that bad, and I still think the show had some funny jokes. And I like how, unlike most sitcoms, every moment is dedicated towards comedy. There are very little serious moments, dramatic moments or heartwarming moments in 30 Rock, and the ones that are there has jokes in them. That, and the weirdness.

    Oh, and another show I like is Mr. Show.
