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 don't have all night to describe all the nuances, just check it out if you feel like it...






fuggin' hell... it's even funnier when i rewatch the teasers after watching the show for the first time :-)
Never seen it, but I know it gave Corden his big break. Always mix it up with 'Ned and Stacy' [which I also never watched] in my mind, or at least I have a mental image of them being similar shows.

What would you compare it to, humor-wise?

Also, chuffed to see Adrian Scarborough in the first clip. Loved his character in Blunt Talk [a show I recommend if you missed it].

trying to think, but really, it's quirky like the office and arrested. story lines aren't as nuanced, but the cringe comedy is there throughout.

Spoiler!


it's not pg rated, but not nearly as rough as say shameless.

the only thing i had a hard time getting past is stacey's damned voice. it's like listening to peggy bundy only higher pitched voice :-)

This alone with the communist unrest mixed in.

The 16-part German period drama Babylon Berlin, which starts streaming on Netflix today, is lavish, epic, dizzyingly complex, and (through the four episodes sent to me early) as satisfying as anything I’ve seen in months....

It’s also similarly expensive. One of the immediate pleasures of this sprawling crime story set in 1929 Weimar Republic Berlin—which is full of unknown-to-me, hugely talented German actors and has as thickly braided a plot as a Tolstoy novel—is the millions thrown at the screen (it’s reportedly the most expensive German-language show ever made).
I liked this show a lot.

Plus the lead has great tits.

Why in the world would you watch it dubbed though? Subtitles are so much better.

I don't know about that, but okay if it you think so.

Because that's how Netflix provided it—so no choice.

Plus it didn't even have closed captioning.

I finished the last season with the finale about a half hour ago of The Americans. It was really good, but I was not that happy with the finale. It was sad. Burov didn't deserve what he got or their children.

Sure seemed like they ended it so there would be a spinoff with the daughter continuing in their line of work.

My sister tells me that is excellent. I just don't get Hulu.

My settings are usually always on for captioning, then I use the button on my remote for on/off. Perhaps I should have checked the settings again. Then again, I didn't turn it on, someone else did.

New Kimmy Schmidt is outstanding. New AD is, somehow, off. I hope the second is better.

Anyone catching 'Strange Angel?'

On CBS All Access, started this week.

Has a decent pedigree and dramatizes an already fantastical true story. The story of Jack Parson.



Giving it a chance, but I don't know if a serious treatment over 10 episodes can eclipse the summation from one Drunk History segment.

The Parson story is just insane so I should watch this if itís good. There is a great podcast The Dollop that seems right up your alley and hilariously covered this crazy ass story.

Not so much a series, as whatever you call Adult Swim interstitial content.

Joe Pera Talks With You About . . .



His delivery can be offputting for some. KInd of the developmentally disabled offspring of Jimmy Stewart and Garrison Keillor. But it gets in under your skin in a good way when you get on the same wavelength as him. Joe has one of the funniest bits about NFL fandom, that I think Chiefs fans can relate to.
