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.

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 film is about National Lampoon magazine, and how the magazine and its empire of spin-offs changed the course of comedy and humor. It's a great story of the magazine was founded with interviews writers, editors artists.

It also has some incredible footage and audio with most of the SNL cast of the 70's and 80's who got their really big breaks when they came over from Second City comedy to NL radio.

For me, it was a tremendous trip down memory lane, learning a great deal about the magazine, its triumphs and its ultimate demise.
Can't recall where I saw it, think it was on HBO or Showtime last year. It was good.

Completely agree. I had to stop. Freeze. Rewind. Freeze. I think it took me 2+ hours to watch it all.

Review is coming back to conclude on Comedy Central.
One of the best, least watched, dry dark comedies around.

As a bonus for Mickhead, it's a remake/reinvention of an Aussie series.

The concept is simple genius. Forrest McNeil hosts a review show, except instead of reviewing movies or music, he reviews life experiences submitted by viewers.

It starts out innocent enough. 'Steal something' 'take up smoking.' And plunges into dark areas 'get divorced' 'become a racist.'

McNeil experiences these things in his real life and reports back with a summation and rating. He tackles them with innocent enthusiasm oblivious to the toll they take on his real life.

This is a very funny, but sedate challenge. Eat 15 pancakes [the amount recommended by the recipe on the back of the batter mix].



This is another show where people who've seen are are bursting to discuss it, but most of the joy is in discovering it for yourself. So you also don't want to spoil it for the uninitiated.

This clip gives a good hint at how funny it can be without spoiling how truly insane it gets over time.

We have been watching Mad Men. We are almost through season 2. It's really just okay. I just started Boardwalk Empire though. I like the first two episodes so far.

So I finally binged Sneaky Pete this weekend. Really dug it.

Started Bosch for no reason at all that I can think of. Just clicked through Amazon originals until I found something else to watch. Like it so far through six or seven eps. I guess season three is about to hit.

I've been so sick man...just laying around doing nothing....but watching the tube. I REALLY dug Sneaky Pete. was sad when it was over.

So....a friend told me to check out Vikings. I'm blew thru season 1 and half of season 2 this weekend. I'm pathetic. :-) I'm liking it though.

I had to give up on Vikings. It will string together 4 or 5 great episodes then spend the next 4 completely fucking lost, accomplishing nothing!

I got a different DVR and forgot to set that one up and haven't gone back.
