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.

I just started Gomorrah based on recommendations from this sub. I'm into it so far but have a question for watching it. Do you all watch the English dubbed version with shows like this or the original language? I can't do the dubbed version but the subtitles are difficult to read when watching in Italian. Is there some trick on HBO Max to getting a black box outlining the words? They blend into the background in all sorts of different scenes and its tough to read half the time.

I watched in English subtitles. I tried but couldn't adjust to the dubbed version. Maybe if I'd of started with it dubbed it would've worked for me, but halfway through a season and it ruined the characters for me so I switched back to subtitles. YMMV.

Its been a bit but I don't remember the subtitles being difficult to read or having/not having a black box around them.

I'd never done dubbed before until this. I didn't think I could watch multiple seasons closely enough with subtitles to catch everything. I actually found it completely fine but others here were turned off and I totally understand that.

I did dubbed. It didn’t bother me at all. If you ever watch Suburra: Blood on Rome ( which I highly recommend if you like Gomorra.) Also watched the dubbed version of that and didn’t bother me. But maybe, I mean definitely I’m weird.

Boy you werenít kidding, itís still an engaging show though. I mean you canít expect Barry to have a happy ending right? Once you enter that life there is no getting out, you will always be sucked back in.

Did any of you watch Marianne (English dubbed) (French Horror series) on Netflix? Episode one is the weakest - it just keeps getting better.

Pretty damn good. Might be the most engrossing series i've watched this year.
I'm about 3 episodes into this and its really well done.

There was a fucked up moment for me in episode one where there is a sticker on a car and a wall hanging in a home that I immediately recognized as a faith based marriage counseling type of thing.

I'm sure they get more into it in future episodes but I recognized it straight away from when I was a kid. My parents had that sticker on their car.

I hadn't seen or thought about it in 35 years and immediately identified it. Nothing like the conjuring of your parents marital issues while watching Sunday night TV. Very well done research for the time period.

Anyway, this and Under the Banner of Heaven have been really solid Hulu programming.

Depending on your taste, I'd estimate it's well superior to Yellowstone.

Yellowstone is pulpy and soapy and about present day power and politics with all that skin and violence. It's decent enough.

But if you like beautiful vistas and hardscrabble toil to traverse a frontier, 1883 is better visually and narratively.

It's a contained narrative fully told from beginning to end in 10 episodes. It doesn't have to worry about stringing you along to the next episode or next season.

And there are some great thespian performances.

I don't want to spoil it with overexplaining or oversharing, but it's beautiful and gritty and violent and uplifting and nostalgic, . . . if those are things you're looking for in a limited series.

I meant to add, you can pick your way through the Yellowstone thread in this subforum for some contemporary reactions. Whether pre-viewing on contemporaneous with your own viewing.

It kind of got adopted as 'the 1883 thread' while it was airing.
