    Default TV Shows!

    I'm getting to the point where I'm watching the same TV shows over and over instead of discovering new ones. I currently like and own seasons for:

    Arrested Development
    Community (Might make some levels based on it)
    The Office
    Parks & Recreation
    House
    Veronica Mars
    Breaking Bad
    30 Rock
    possibly some other shows I'm forgetting

    I'm also really into Conan (might do a level)
    One Piece
    Avatar/Legend of Korra

    I'm currently starting Dr. Who just so I can get all the Inspector Spacetime jokes on Community.

    Any suggestions for me?

  2. Thanks!

    My top 10:

    Special mention: Friends (as it's a great show, but not quite worthy of being up there).

    10) Simpsons
    9) Breaking Bad
    Deadwood
    7) Dexter
    6) South Park
    5) Big Bang Theory (Because it's so appealing to me!)
    4) Walking Dead
    3) Sherlock - BBC
    2) Doctor Who
    1) How I met your mother

    Friends would've been in place of Simpsons, but as How I met your mother is the number one, it would've seemed in vain.

    Great list! All my comedy is 30 Rock, Community, Office, Parks & Rec.

    Put Mad Men (AMC) on your list. Every single hour is fantastic. Hits just the right balance of serious and melodrama. And then there are a slew of great HBO shows, if you can get them.

    Like you I watch Arrested Development over and over and over. Gearing up for another run of all 3 seasons (I tend to watch about 4-5 episodes every night, when I start watching any of it) in anticipation of the Netflix season coming this spring.

    I like to watch Ghibli animations over and over, too. I have the complete library and get into a nightly thing, watching the same movie every night for sometimes weeks and weeks, falling asleep to it halfway. It's like soothing white noise. This has been a thing for me since about 2003.

    I've liked what I've seen of Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother, but all the one-liners have made me less inclined to actually watch them in order. I might give Mad Men another shot. I only saw a season 4 episode without any story context.

    @arbiekko - is Ghibli the studio behind Totoro and Spirited Away? If so, I've been wanting to watch those movies. Very imaginative. I'm gonna activate the free month of Netflix on my PS3 the same month Arrested Development comes out. All the episodes are gonna get released at once!

    All I watch is Adventure Time, and a ton of old-ish Nickelodeon cartoons.

    Community and Conan are fantastic shows, I'd imagine in level form they'd be equally as great.
    Dexter the game, that'd be just magnificent.

    More iron than man.

    My favorites right now are Sherlock and Game of Thrones, whose third seasons are taking their sweet time to arrive. Boardwalk Empire, Breaking Bad and Mad Men are also great.

    The Walking Dead became really boring from the middle of the first season (when they started to deviate from the story of the comics) but really recovered in the latter episodes of the second. I used to watch Fringe, but I haven't since its third season or so. Recently I have started to watch Doctor Who and it seems to deserve the cult following it has acquired.

    In terms of comedy shows, I like How I Met Your Mother. It never achieved the greatness of the first seasons of Friends, but it also hasn't lost quality as Friends did in its latter seasons. Big Bang Theory has really gone downhill since the first two or three seasons but I still watch it, I don't really know why.

    In the genre of animation, I liked The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra way more than I thought I would. The only japanese anime I can stand is Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

    I should start watching Community and Arrested Development. Everyone tells me they're great.

  14. Thanks!

    "Adventure Time", "Regular Show", "The Legend of Korra", "Gravity Falls", and "Young Justice" (why, Cartoon Network, why), are my favorite current cartoons. "The Looney Tunes Show", "The Amazing World of Gumball", the CGI adaption of "TMNT", "Phineas and Ferb", and "Transformers: Prime" are good current cartoons to watch, too. "Motorcity", "Tron: Uprising", "Sym-Bionic Titan" and "Thundercats (2011)" should have get season 2 instead of getting canceled, but the legacy of these great quality action cartoons live on. At least both Titan and Cats are on Toonami, and Cats amazingly get a million views in some episodes for an 1am eastern time slot. "Avatar: The Last Airbender", "Transformers: Generation One", "Looney Tunes", "Darkwing Duck", "Batman: The Animated Series", "Gurren Lagann", "Oban Star Racers", and "Beast Wars" are my favorite classic cartoons/anime, while "Pokemon", "Digimon", "Yugioh", "Spongebob Squarepants" and "The Simpsons" are the shows I wouldn't mind watching newer ones, but I prefer the earlier ones.

    As in comedy shows, "The Middle" "Modern Family", "Last Man Standing", and "The Big Bang Theory" are the current best ones. "Everybody Loves Raymond", "Home Improvement", "Seinfeld", and "Friends" are the great classic comedies, too.

    I don't watch drama shows that often, but the best one I can think of is "Heroes".

    Netflix just blew me away this weekend with its House of Cards series (also all released at once) starring Kevin Spacey. Not a consistently amazing experience but nicely mature (as in dramatically mature), interesting and the first two episodes are basically a miniseries or a movie, directed by David Fincher. When you sign up for Arrested Development, check out at least the first two episodes of House of Cards!

    I hardly watch any dramatic shows, mostly comedy... i seriously tried watching house but its just not my type of thing... same with dexter and some others... but i enjoyed The Sopranos alot and Twin Peaks + The Wire wasnt that bad and i liked Breaking Bad for a while... (HBO got some amazing shows)

    I like most of those cheesy us comedy shows, which got mentioned here alot allready... but somehow they just got alot of heart and are very enjoyable to watch, allthough they got a reputation for beeing a bit dumb... shows like Big Bang Theory, Two and a half men, the 70's Show, Friends, King of Queens, How i met your Mother, Family matters, Full House, Malcom in the Middle, Prince of Belair, The Wonder Years, Raymond etc. etc. there are alot of them... watching those shows just makes/made me feel good. Really liked Scrubs alot, it has a great "Soundtrack". Seinfelds pretty cool too. There are some UK Shows which are quite fun, but english-uk humor is probably overhyped... i saw some shows and they often repeated themselves with some jokes and plots, but still great tho. Some of the comedy shows i mentioned above, are very moraly and ethnicly orientated... a good example would be "Full House", this Show is so "nice", it would probably bore me to death to watch it now... but those shows were great as a kid, as they teached u somehow, to be a better person.

    Im a major fan of animated comedy series... The Simpsons are a classic ofc, but tbh, i find it rather sad to watch now... newer episodes got no plot at all anymore and are basically one joke after another, and rarely anyone is ever good... it lost all its charme from back in the days... but its still pretty much the grandfather of all modern animated comedy shows. Futurama is still good tho. Love Family Guy + Sideshows, cant wait for the movie. Even like King of the Hill and ofc Beavis and Butthead. What Humor belongs i rarely have any limits, thats why i liked shows like Drawn together and especially The Wonder Showzen (quite extreme humor ^^) too. Allways keeping my eyes for other good quality animated comedy shows... but i dont like kids cartoon too much, i rather enjoy something with more adult appealing content.. allthough Ren and Stimpy is great... (well they made the lost episodes, which is for adults only) and things like spongesbob is silly but just fun. [The Life and Times of Tim is quite fun too, very simple animation but quite good humor = adult]

    My favourite Show of all time by faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar must be Southpark.... im addicted to it... pretty much must have watched every episode over 10 times now... i can watch it over and over and over... it got so much personality, great humor, its made with alot of love and detail and its atleast somehow intelligent with its social criticism and its very relevant with its episodes on whats happening in the (us)society and world. It keeps the balance between silly vulgar or violent humor and still is in one or another way rather intelligent)

    Well, i rarely ever wanna discuss or argue about wether a show is good or not, this is a very personal thing... there are some shows outthere which gets extremely hyped and watched which i cant understand at all, for some shows u would have to pay me to watch it, but it doesnt make any sense to get into an argument, if some shows good or sucks... its very personal, especially what comedy belongs.

    Anyways, some great shows which got mentioned here... some are new to me, and i will look into some of them.

    When you sign up for Arrested Development, check out at least the first two episodes of House of Cards!
    I tried watching Arrested Development as u hear that one alot, but well, i watched the first episode and i couldnt get into it at all.... but House of Cards sounds interesting. Kevin Spacey and David Fincher? Sounds good.

    Well, since i recently heard of Dr. Who having nearly 30 Seasons, i looked up to it, and im wondering if i would like it... sounds weird tbh ^^

    Also, Black Mirror two is worth checking out when it comes out next week (and only watch the killing I and II; III is not worth investing time in).

    By the killing III, do you mean the third season they're about to start up? While I'm glad the show is getting support, I feel mixed about it continuing considering how perfectly it ended imo with the final moments of season 2.

    EDIT:

    I agree with you on Arrested Development. I watched the first few episodes, and while there were some funny parts to it, it didn't feel nearly as masterful as everyone had made it out to be. As for Doctor Who, there was the original show which started back in the 60s (before Star Trek even) and got cancelled in the 90s I believe. The show was then brought back early 2000s, and has been going strong ever since. It's a good show, even if some seasons can follow a hit- or-miss trend due to varying themes/plots and a multitude of writers. (As well as a few guest writers) I'd start by watching the first season of the "new" show that started in the early 2000s. Watching the old series isn't really necessary since they summarize the important stuff quite clearly. It's a fun sci- fi show with some brilliant episodes here, and some mediocre ones there. Still worth watching. As for sitcoms, you might want to try out Frasier.

    Another show I'd recommend would be Harper 's Island. Great little mystery show, and just one season.

    I'll probably watch Black Mirror next week. I saw 2/3 of the first lot. Missed the 2nd one but might try to catch up on 4od before next week.

    At the moment, I'm not watching much. Excluding shows that have finished, or are on hiatus, my list is:

    Utopia
    Justified
    Person of Interest
    Nikia
    Spartacus: War of the ****ed
    Being Human (UK)

  24. Thanks!

    Ye, might give the new show a try, as im kinda turned off by too old tv shows lol, i wanted to watch The Twilight Zone but never really did. Theres a remake of that one too i think, but not as good.. i dunno.

    I agree with you on Arrested Development. I watched the first few episodes, and while there were some funny parts to it, it didn't feel nearly as masterful as everyone had made it out to be.
    I mean there are some shows, u need to watch a few shows to get into it, but if u dont like it at all from start... i guess its not a bad show, but its just not for me.

    As for sitcoms, you might want to try out Frasier...
    Yeah, i know it, it got shown in germany on cable. I watched it randomly, when it was on, i do that with comedy shows too.


    Kinda like this Thread, got pointed out to some great shows here, will give some of them a try.
