Media Center>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 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.

The scene running over the bunny was spot-on.

Anyone hyped for a Perry Mason reboot?

LA Crime, HBO, Matthew Rhys, and the good taste to put Radiohead in their trailer appropriately

I’m down. Rhys was really goddamned good in the Americans.

The last series I really got into, so much so that I've seen every episode (63 of them) five times. It's Six Feet Under, it was on HBO from 2001 to 2005. Look at the cast, Richard Jenkins, Peter Krause, Michael C. Hall, Freddy Rodriguez, Frances Conroy, Lauren Ambrose, Rachel Griffiths, Mathew St. Patrick and Jeremy Sisto. Even guest actors who played a few episodes became or were famous, Rainn Wilson before Dwight Schrute was Arthur, and Ben Foster was the confused friend of Claire, Lili Taylor, Joanna Cassidy, James Cromwell, Kathy Bates, Justin Theroux, Ed Begley Jr. and so many more. I think many actors would request to be on the show. I know the creator of The Office, Greg Daniels was a huge fan and that's how he found his Dwight.

It's about the Fisher family and their business, a funeral home in LA and how they go about their daily lives. I guess it could be considered a soap, but it's beyond whatever you would see on daytime TV, of course it's HBO. The show is available on HBO on-demand. Just watch the first episode, if that doesn't grab you, then don't watch anymore.

Had never heard of this show until I read your post. I'm 3 seasons in and it's some of the dumbest shit I've ever loved. It even has good memes.

Early on it was pretty rough. But his acting has gotten a lot better and the interpersonal stuff is actually compelling regardless of a lot of hand waving crap.


Plus. Iím reminded I need to call people assling more.

Anybody check out Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist?

Pretty quirky show, but good humor, good musical numbers, good cast, and also hits you in the feels pretty good from time to time. Worth a watch if you're looking for something different.

I watch 99.9999% because Jane Levy is one of my onscreen kryptonites.

I'd sit 40 min a week to watch her surf twitter on her phone.

That said, that finale scene with Billy Joel's Lullaby was devastating. Particularly when you know the creator wrote it from personal experience with his own dad passing from the same thing.

Yeah, Jane Levy is awesomely adorable on this show. But that whole last 15 minutes of the finale was so emotional. Not a dry eye in our house after that. But I love that they balance it out with humor and songs, makes for a good combination.

The guy who plays Max (and was Jesse on Pitch Perfect) has a really good voice. I'm hoping they renew for a second season. I think they would have already if it weren't for the coronavirus uncertainties.
