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.

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.

So I picked up HBOMAX for a few months here, and finally got to watch White Lotus and Mare of Easttown.

White Lotus
White Lotus is some really excellent filmmaking. It doesn't try to get out over it's skis and tell some grandiose story. Nope. It's a bit of a character study on like 8 people over a week in a resort. The acting is all really good. There is a bit of a stretch in is this how these people would really react - but nothing cheesy. And the beginning line of "Oh we heard someone died. Yeah, they're loading the body on our plane" was really fucking excellent. The whole fucking time I was trying to figure out who was going to eat shit, and they did a great job of leaving it open.

Really had my ass hooked for no more than it was.

I listened to some interesting analysis about White Collar vs Blue Collar consequences to what happened that was really interesting, but I totally missed it upon the first watch.

Mare of Easttown
Mare was fucking amazing. I'm probably going to rewatch it before I dump the subscription.

Top to bottom, really fucking good. A little more aggressive in that it was a bigger story, but really, REALLY good.

Anyone that hasn't watched it. Do it.

I've been watching this and really enjoying it. It's Alive meets Lord of the Flies meets Mean Girls meets mid-90s references.

Finished season one of Gomorra on HBO last night. Holy shit, the show is ridiculously intense, the last 2 episodes of season one kept me from going to bed on time. Wanted to watch S2E1 but had to get up for work early. If you’re a fan of The Godfather, SoA, stuff like that it’s incredible so far.

Did I miss the early discussion or has the "Squid Game" being discussed yet?

Hellbound on Netflix is legit.

Squid Games meets the Branch Dividians.

Oh. My. Fucking. God.

I had never heard of this show until this post. And I looked it up and gave it a shot.

There is nothing better in this world than finding a show you’ve never watched that has four amazing seasons and makes its way into your top 10 immediately.

Just finished the first season. This is one of the darkest, most intense shows I’ve ever watched. I’ve been watching the dubbed version and it’s strikingly good.

So thrilled to have three more seasons at my disposal.

For light, pointless shit you can put on in the background while you're doing other things, Ghosts on HBO Max is pretty good.

I tried the CBS version and it's not as good (too Americanized -- loses the dry wit of the British version) but the BBC version is pretty solid and not anything you have to pay real close attention to.

The girl from iZombie stars in the American version. Both are good for light sitcom stuff.
