The T.V. Show Thread

Recommended Posts

Talk about T.V. Shows, latest episodes, what to watch, what to binge on.

Like the film thread but with T.V.

Currently watching Sherlock, starting season two tomorrow. Then will start watching Breaking Bad.

You're in for a treat when you start Breaking Bad. The first season is a bit slow, but if you stick with it the payoff is huge.

I'm working on The Office. Never enjoyed when I'd just see an episode here and there, but I'm loving now that I'm really watching it. Just about to start season 6.

Get ready to be disappointed. I stopped watching during Season 6. It fell off from there.

Also there used to be a TV show thread. I don't feel like looking for it, though.

When Steve Carrell leaves... the show dies. I couldn't bring myself to watch the new seasons.

Rick and Morty is the best new show I've seen in a bit. It's absolutely hilarious.

Also Archer returned tonight.

That's what I've been reading. But once I start a show, I stick with it unless it loses my interest real early on. Weeds lost me somewhere in season 5 and I stuck it out...that was painful.

Curb is still pretty funny, except now it's more hit and miss. Larry David is a genius.

I am wildly enamored with Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but also pretty sure that I should be somewhat embarrassed about this.

I watched a few eps of Dads. Seemed a bit wonky, like they hadn't really worked out what they are doing. Brooklyn Nine I'm interested in seeing too.

Homeland 3. I know everyone hates it but I like the main character.

I actually watched two reasonably new tv shows actually, Derek with Ricky Gervais and the one Stephen Merchant made over in America, it's actually quite funny y'know, i think it's the first time in a very very long time that i found some American sitcom funny.

Thing about American telly is, by my reckoning, the stuff thats meant to be funny is like, not funny but the stuff that ain't meant to be is fucking fabulous. As in like, comedy gold. Like I was watching this reality show thing and it's all about these brides to be and them getting all done up for their weddings and...basically the whole things based around this shop that does girls up for their wedding and they've got their obligatory tape measure poof and the obligatory strong minded professional woman and then the soft skinny one that gushes over everybody and like...the fuckin' results of this show are hilairious, it's funnier than any American comedy I ever saw.

Like this fat black bird comes up and she's like 'ooooh I always wanted to be Princess Diana and have a massive wedding and have this huge dress and, i dunno, all the bollocks girls want out of a wedding. And at the end of the show she comes out and she's like, gushing and everyone around hers going 'ohmigod, you look just like her, you look just like her!' and it's like, no you don't!!! Princess Diana, closest to royalty you're getting darling is Queen Latifah and you need to lose about 70 pounds even to get there :lol:

I seen loads of em too and i think it's fabulous, these weird shows like...there was this one show about this bird that was like the biggest tight arse ever and she lives off like, cutting out 5,000 coupons a week so she can do her shopping for a fiver and food thrown out of restaurants.

I think American TV entails getting these proper mental internally damaged fundamentally fucked up people, sticking a camera on em, poking em with a stick and seeing what happens, i love it, it's hilairious :lol: I love reality TV, it's the lowest cheapest most unjustifiably mishandled cultural experiment ever. There is a fundamental prurience and immorality to it that just make it the best TV ever, it is totally fake as shit and exploitative and it does so with a really glee, it's great :lol:

Season 8 and 9 were a travesty. Watching that was like watching and old friend get raped right in front of me and not being able to stop it.

I saw an episode of Airplane Repo the other day, looked alright.

It reminds me of Big Rig Bounty Hunters but with jets instead.

The second half of season 3 more than makes up fir the first half. It gets good!

I love Archer. It kind of hit a slump but Benjamin said the next season might be the best.

Not nearly as good as it should have continued to be.

I remember when they realized they dropped the ball when they kill off Godric in season two when he turned out to be more interesting than any of the characters on the show.

It's the Charlie Sheen show.

S8 was okay, Spader was very funny. I agree that 9 was utter junk.

Yeah if you bear through the first half of S3, you are rewarded with the second half, which was excellent.

Just finished second episode of the new Sherlock series, really great, just terrific.

Going to start the second series of Sherlock tonight.

I would love to watch Mad Men but it is not a priority. Would love to catch up on House. Someday watch all the Star Treks.

Homeland is the only show I found to replace 24. That kind of quasi serious show that is still kind of trashy.
