Must Watch Series
 
All this talk about series, how network TV Sucks, and how hard it is to find quality shows, and some excellent shows that fly under the radar, I need a comprehensive review of all the series I need to see.

For good entertainment, I would be willing to buy DVD sets. But I've recently picked up HBOGO by kiping it from my parents, and recently got Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Here is a listing of shows that I currently own or have seen all the episodes of. If it isn't on the list, just assume I haven't seen it.

Here is a listing of shows on my list to watch (mostly due to this thread)

I work a ****ton, so it is hard for me catch a series while it is on to get it on the DVR, but I recognize the entertainment value and am willing to go after the Must See shows. Accordingly, I'm not necessarily looking for anything that is still running. I'm up for watching stuff that has run its course.

So what say you, Planet? Which shows should I see?

UPDATED for the shows I've seen recently.

If you like Chuck, you might enjoy Warehouse 13 and Eureka.

I figured Firefly would suck. I'll see if I can't find the first few episodes. It looks pretty good. Thanks

I'll check out Arrested Development. I've heard good things.

Tell me about Battlestar Galactica. I never looked into it.

I'll get Deadwood.

Friday Night Lights? Really? The promos looked like balls when it came out.

Demonpenz 04-26-2012 01:38 PM

Friday Night Lights pretty much got rave reviews the entire run. Bill Simmons even had an entire podcast on it.

I tried Warehouse 13. Wasn't too impressed.

I might check out Eureka. The promos looked OK.

I mainly like Chuck because of Yvonne Strahovski :D There is some decent comedy in there, but it has been going downhill since the 2nd season. The series isn't my all time favorite, but Yvonne Strahovski is DEFINITELY my favorite.

I'll check it out. I've seen the ads, but missed the first few episodes so never got into it.

I don't think I'll get into Lost. I've heard what happens.

Mad Men is good? I never heard much about it.

What is Parks and Recreation about?

What is Six Feet Under about?

I've been wondering if Game of Thrones is good. I am kind of a sucker for medieval stuff.

No Reservations as in Anthony Bourdain?

Demonpenz 04-26-2012 01:53 PM

i hate my life

Frosty 04-26-2012 02:10 PM

Dead Like Me is another good one.

Sure thing. You're choice. But it's easily one of (if not THE) best network TV dramas out there. Outstanding journey. And I really loved where it went.

Mad Men is amazing. Mad Men or Breaking Bad (take your pick), a case could be made for either being the best show on television right now.

A mocumentary style comedy (from the producers of the US version of The Office). It's about a group of people that work for the Parks and Rec department in Pawnee Indiana. Stars Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman and Aubrey Plaza. Hysterical. It's pretty brilliant.

HBO series about a family that runs a funeral home from their house. Great writing, great acting.

Then watch this immediately! It's outstanding.

Yes. By far, the best "non-scripted" reality based show on TV, I think. It's really the only "reality" show that I watch. Except for Bourdain's The Layover. Which is also pretty sweet.

Suits
That 70's Show
Top Gear

Jesus Christ, what an awful ****ing list. I mean, those aren't all terrible shows, but there's not a single show on there that is worth watching every episode of.
