Trailer Park Boys
The only show I regularly tune into is Mad Men. It’s extremely well-written and well acted. Besides that I watch House MD and South Park reruns sometimes and canceled favorites on DVD: Arrested Development, Freaks and Geeks, Six Feet Under and Twin Peaks.
Mostly though I enjoy Bravo, could watch Top Chef all day.
Flight Of The Concords
Curb Your Enthusiasm
The Office (British)
Gavin and Stacey
The Mighty Boosh
Just started watching the re-run of Cranford.
And Battlestar Galactica was superb.
I don’t watch that much TV, but my favorite shows are:
Avatar: The Last Airbender
How i meet your mother
Six Feet under
Aqui no hay quien vivia
Six Feet Under
The Office (both)
Doctor Who (love the new, like the old)
Battlestar Galactica (the newer version)
The L Word (yes, I admit it. I’m a straight man and I watch The L Word and not just for the naked women.)
Flight Of The Concords
Ones I’ve just recently seen on DVD
Coupling (the original and better British version)
I’m Alan Partridge…
Yes, Minister! & Yes, Prime Minister!
Six Feet Under
Homicide: Life on the Street
Doogie Howser M.D.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Freaks & Geeks
Six Feet Under
Flight of the Conchords
The Wire, Arrested Development, and Aqua Teen Hunger Force. I’m good.
Just purchased Deadwood and Rome because they’re currently on sale. Both blind buys.
Recent shows I really enjoy – Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Louie.
Deadwood! Deadwood! Deadwood! Best show ever!
Deadwood’s pretty good but best show ever…you couldn’t compare it to Sopranos could you?
I watch very few TV shows, but the ones that I do watch I absolutely love:
The Twilight Zone
Family Guy (my guilty pleasure)
you must see Breaking Bad!
I have a friend in school who says the exact same thing lol
seriously get on it, season 5 should be starting soon I hope.
It airs in July according to Cranston but there’s no official announcement yet. You should listen to your friend, Scottie!
How has nobody mentioned Friday Night Lights yet?!!!!!! FNL is my favorite drama alongside The Sopranos, not to mention that it is really the only quality drama that actually leaves you with a sense of optimism, instead of ominous existential dread and/or a disgust with humanity. (actually, Deadwood could be fairly goodhearted, even though it was in a rough, frontier way).
Also, have to mention Home Movies as a contender for favorite comedy.
Deadwood or Sopranos? Deadwood, no contest, not close. And I love the Sopranos!
I also found Friday Night Lights compelling enough to watch to the end, but I don’t think it belongs in a discussion alongside many of the other titles people have mentioned.
Well, with Friday Night Lights, I will say that the first time I watched it, I loved it, but probably wouldn’t have called it one of my favorite shows. But it was one of those shows that I came to love more and more the more I watched it, and have no problem putting it at the top of my list. The acting is phenomenal, the characters fully fleshed out, and to me is just about on par with Sopranos, which I think is the best acted TV show. It also really made the most of the cinema verite style it used, which also distanced itself from its television peers and really helped to establish it own unique identity. There are parts of it that aren’t the best, but every show can say that. A lot of people dislike or just try to forget about the second season, and that’s understandable, but I even like that season as sort of like a Bizarro world Dillon.
With Deadwood, I have only watched it once, but loved it, and realize that it definitely warrants repeated viewings.
As far as my own personal list, it goes like this (in order). Not terribly off the beaten path, but TV doesn’t really offer quite the extensive range as film does.
1. The Sopranos
2. Friday Night Lights
3. Mad Men (the way MM’s been going, I am guessing it will remain at the top, unless something crazy happens like Weiner leaving the show or something)
5. The Wire
6. The Shield (man, this is one show I’m not sure i would ever watch again. It was great, but WAY too dark to want to go through it again)
7. Breaking Bad (last season was hit or miss BB, but I think you can make this last one outstanding if you want to. Having Jesse Plemmons from FNL come on is a really good start)
1. The Simpsons
3. Arrested Development
4. Rocky and Bullwinkle
5. Home Movies
6. The Office (w/ Steve Carrell)
7. Flying Circus
8. 30 Rock (OK, first season was only OK, and this last season has not been the best, but seasons 2 through 4 were so freaking good, that I can overlook it, especially if they don’t drop the ball on their last one)
The only show I haven’t seen that I think might make it in is Twin Peaks, based on my love for David Lynch. I’ll get to it one of these days.
Current shows that have potential: Game of Thrones, Veep, Venture Bros if it ever decides to return, Parks and Rec (one more season like the last 3, and I think I would have to put it in a list of favorites), Archer, Bob’s Burgers, Terriers (hey, one can pray)
also love Friday Night Lights – have not been able to watch the end…to say “goodbye”
Having Jesse Plemmons from FNL come on is a really good start) oooh I didn’t know that he was one of the best maybe the best actor on there
The Twilight Zone (original), Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Wire, Epitafios, Daria, Twin Peaks, Beavis and Butt-Head, Batman: The Animated Series in some kind of order..
I just watched the season finale of BBC’s Sherlock and I have to say that it is one of the most incredible shows I’ve ever watched. Amazing television, WATCH IT!
