Media Center>Must Watch Series
Buehler445 08:54 AM 04-26-2012
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.

I work a fuckton, 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.

Is the show Devs worth checking out?? The trailer made it seem pretty cool/mysterious (from the director of Ex Machina & Annihilation ) but I don't have HULU.

So the actor who played the former commie spy is going to be the very American Perry Mason. Somehow, I can't see him being Perry, but I'll give it a shot.

I've been watching that Epstein series Filthy Rich but fell asleep during it last night. I'll have to replay some of that episode from last night.

I'm binging Boardwalk Empire and I don't remember enjoying Soprano's as much as this. Great moments, great subtle humor, great deaths, great twists.

I was literally yelling "Fuck you! Fuck you! Fuck you!" when he killed Jimmy's wife and lover. I liked her a lot. Fuck!

Season 1 & season 2 of Boardwalk Empire are flat out masterpieces. (imo)

With references like these, looks like a Sunday binge watch. Beats Nascar

I just watched the scene where Nucky and his wife were having a quiet conversation alone soon after she returned. Then the music started for the next scene and it startled Nucky and he looked to his right looking for the source. I lost it. :-) Had to rewind to make sure that's what I saw. Comedy genius. And I just love Capone's portrayal here. Lucky is great too but not as exciting as Capone. And young Steve Buscemi has his mannerisms down pat.

Spoiler!


Edit: Finished it. The end was a surprise, but cliche.

I am almost done with season one of Lillyhammer. It is hilarious in my opinion. The way they portray the Norwegians reminds me of how they portrayed the locals in Fargo.

I keep waiting for Steven VanZant's wig to fall off. :-) It has to be a wig, right?

Gotham is really good. Redhead guy from Shameless is a great Joker. Other characters are great too.

Erin Richards is drop dead gorgeous. Yikes.

No spoilers please.

Gotham started to drag so I moved to The 100 (Netflix). It's got it all. Walking Dead, Lord of the Flies, Elyseum, BSG. Loving it so far (S1,E10)

I watched the 100 (it's actually from CW, not netflix) for maybe the first five seasons. It was really good, just stopped watching for some random reason.

One show that just ended that I lean towards a recommend, and one just starting that is very promising.

Never been so conflicted as with 'I Know This Much is True,' it is a very well acted and nuanced mini-series that is almost preternaturally ill-suited to the times. At times it verges on torture porn, and can leave you a little hollowed out. But overall it is so well acted and so well crafted that, if you think you have the constitution to do so, it is worth a close watch.

It's basically a story of how family, history, fate, etc. can trap us in our own self-destruction, and the things one has to come to terms with in order to continue on. That probably doesn't make it sound appealing, but perhaps better is to characterize it as a contemporary riff on the parable of Job.

The trailer below is decent, but it frames it as some wacky hijinks drama just about twin brothers, but it's wider and more expansive, and if you had to encapsulate it, it makes a realistic picture of the things that coalesce over a lifetime to foment resentment and despair, and how hard they can be to let go, and how important it is to let them go anyway.



Less heavy in some ways, but looking to be more heavy in others, 'I May Destroy You' looks very promising. It looks to be a very different look at dealing with sexual assault, where the conclusions become clear but the roadway there is messy and confusing. I've only seen the first ep, but it's a different approach from anything I've seen before. Very subtle and nuanced, almost so you don't even register. Looking forward to seeing how it plays out, could fall apart, could triumph, we'll see. And the lead is very compelling in her own right.
