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.

I decided to watch some Brooklyn 99 reruns.

“One Flan.”

Wasn't really in the mood for this, but Dennis Lehane and positive reviews drew me in . . . It's pretty engrossing so far

It's probably already been mentioned but the Bigfoot show on Hulu was excellent.

Keep in mind it's not actually about Bigfoot as much as that's just the name of the show. That's the starting point of a journalist's questioning of what happened to him years ago.

The final truth of what happens ends up being much different and about something entirely different...

I watched Warrior on HBO.

It is about Chinatown in SanFran in the 1800s. I didn't expect much, but found myself caring a lot about the outcome. There is only 2 seasons and seems to end in the middle probably, but it was worth the watch.

The fight scenes were way better than I expected. And the bro banter was really good in some places. It was far from perfect, but I found myself caring a lot about the characters.

Sidenote: I loved the Hong character. Particularly in the Mexico episode. I laughed every time he was on the screen.

Ah Sahm is the fucking shit.

The actor also was Storm Shadow in the Snake Eyes movie and was tight AF in that.

Basically, an update of the story of . . . incidental . . . parents, navigating modern problems [social media, juggling work and home life, . . . kids these days, etc].

Particularly interesting is the character played by the wife, because it's played by Daisy Haggard who is mostly known for a one-note but brilliant and hilarious character in Episodes. Again, a much different and altogether enjoyable performance.
Quoted this from a reference in an old Fargo thread because Breeders just had its season 3 finale.

I know the type of show might not be for everyone, but for the type of show it is, it's pretty brilliant in its execution.

I'm a sucker for shows about conflict that put the effort in to make sure everyone has a bit of a point and everyone is a bit of an ass, so it's not simply good guys versus bad guys, but explores the little fulcrums in interpersonal interactions that can bend the entire narrative in one direction or another.

And Breeders does a great job of showing how bonkers maintaining family can be with modern mores and sensitivities without letting the bonkers slip totally into caricature.

You'll find yourself musing long after episodes are over regarding who's right and who's wrong, how right or wrong they are, or what you would or wouldn't put up with in given situations, and often your own perspective will shift over time, . . . all of which seems an important task to occasionally tackle if you expect familial drama to remain compelling.

All that to say, if nuanced semi-comedic modern family [non-soapy] drama is a genre you seek out, Breeders does it better than most everything else out there.

Just watched the first episode of The Bear. I see great potential for this one. A show about a guy who inherits his dead brother's restaurant, both apparently very talented chefs. The kitchen interactions are very raw and intense. Great acting, barely feels like you're watching actors. Has that voyeuristic quality that Succession possesses.

Moving a prior post over to here, because, dummy me, it's a series not a movie. . .

Anyway, saw episode one, and it's every bit of a piece of his prior work.

The best way to put it, particularly to avoid spoiling the experience, is that you won't know what you're watching, but you know you can't look away.

I'm not entirely sure I can say universally that it's not off-putting, because it meanders into realms that are going to spark response from some. And that's not saying it's like gross or perverted or weird, except in the broadest senses of those concepts.

The best word I can conjure is transgressive . . . It takes so many things about social interaction and subjects it to new scrutiny and off-kilter re-examination. You'll wonder what's real and what's not, and you'll wonder how someone comes up with the subtle and small details, let alone the grand plan that goes into an undertaking like this.

I highly recommend off what I've seen of the first episode, because if nothing else it won't be quite like anything else you've seen, and it's worth it just for the creativity and nuance.

A lot of this probably sounds like talking around the show instead of talking about the show, and that's fair and it's also innate to the show itself. I think the remarks, as well as the circumspection, will make more sense when you've seen it yourself.

Finally watched Bosch Legacy, not bad, seemed about the same production level.

Nah, they went cheap a couple places that was noticeable, but I was all in on the story. Welliver owns that role.

Bear.

Crazy unique show. Raw. Gritty. Heartfelt. Amazing acting. As real as a restaurant show will get.

Very, very cool. First few episodes and it's easy to see the potential but maybe harder to envision the payoff. But it hits.

Yup, FX/Hulu. Good luck.
