Just as it says, do we watch any particular shows? Crappy tv, dramas, series', documentary, cartoon network? I glanced around and saw we don't really have a good old TV thread, so here it is.

I myself am waiting patiently for new seasons of Spartacus, Game of Thrones, and whatever else Triskele decides to make me watch until I decide to like it inbetween now and then.

I watch a lot of stuff. I'll try and narrow it down to a short list. The following are shows that are still in production.
  • Boardwalk Empire
  • Breaking Bad
  • Californication
  • Community
  • Dexter
  • Fringe
  • Game of Thrones
  • Happy Endings
  • Hell On Wheels
  • Homeland
  • Mad Men
  • Parks and Recreation
  • Shameless
  • Sons of Anarchy
  • The Good Wife
  • The Killing
  • The Walking Dead

I try and watch the stuff that's considered to be good quality series. I've also seen all of Spartacus, but after the sad fate of Andy Whitfield, the show really went downhill.

Mad Men and Breaking Bad are things that I've always been interested in. Are they any good? What's the premise?

Also god, for a minute there I thought you meant the british Shameless, oh dear.

Haha, does that mean the British Shameless is bad? I assumed it would be pretty good, since there is a US remake. Sort of like The Office.

Mad Men was honestly BORING when I first started watching it. It's definitely a niche drama. I essentially forced myself through, and around the 3rd season I really started to get into it. It's now near the top of my list. Basically, it's about the "Mad Men", or rather Ad Men that work in an advertising agency on Madison Avenue in New York in the 60s. The show has a lot of themes such as adultery, racism and so on. If you're into dramas, I do recommend giving it a few episodes to see if you'd like it.

Breaking Bad, on the other hand, is awesome the entire way through. It's about a high school chemistry teacher that "breaks bad" and starts making Meth. I don't want to give any spoilers, so all I'll say is that this show is probably one of the best shows that is currently running.

Game of Thrones (\o/), Spartacus (it's my guilty pleasure, no one can know), True Blood (same story <.<) and Magic City. Those four are my usual couch-material. I also have a habit of rewatching Firefly at least once every six months.

True Blood is honestly great as soon as you learn to ignore the idiocy that is Sookie Stackhouse. Erik, Pam, Tara, Jason, Lafayette... They will all have you laughing, I promise. Sookie's just an idiot :D

And you know what, Pam believes so too!

Dang, I remember watching Breaking Bad when it first aired. Best writing I'd ever seen on TV. Hasn't changed since.

That aside, several shows from UK and US televsion. Nothing on German TV worth watching except cabaret and football (soccer).
The Daily Show, Game of Thrones, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Louie, Warehouse 13, QI, 10 o'clock Live, Doctor Who, Torchwood (please continue!) ...

oh man dexter. a buddy of mine has alot of sleepless nights cause of that seires (because he was watching it instead of you know.. sleeping)

as for breaking bad: you can pretty much guess that that one is pretty popular amongst chemistry students, the whole "open a meth lab" thing is a running gag with us.

as for true blood: i tried watching it, quite a bit. But i just came to the conclusion that i only liked the title music, all the characters are tools (tho i figured that was intentional, at least i hoped so) and im just not into vampires.

I honestly had only heard about it, a former friend of mine used to love it, and last night Tecca recommended it and I'm out of stuff to watch, so I'll see if I like it xD
