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.

Anyone watching Vikings: Valhalla on Netflix? Pretty decent 3 episodes in.

So was looking for something to watch on Amazon and came across Pandora. Knew nothing about it, but it had a second season recently and it's sci-fi so gave it a try. Holy crap is it bad, CW bad. How on earth did it get a second season?

Stumbled on to "Pieces of Her" today on Netflix. Riviting, highly recommend it. Not a boring moment so far and I am about half way through it.

I remember when Stranger Things season 1 dropped (originally) - I was in the middle of watching a bunch of things. I was able to get through 2 episodes yesterday. No surprise that I really like it so far.

I’ve still never seen Stranger Things. Not sure I ever will.

I made it through the first season and found it mildly interesting; after a couple of episodes into season 2, I just never watched another one.

Wish I had done that on the Lost In Space series... UGH.

Caught S5 of The Last Kingdom.

I rewatched the series because I forgot what happened. On the rewatch, it was a lot better than I remembered. I distinctly remember being put off by some of the dialogue and the acting of the lead actor. It wasn't at all like I remembered. In fact, I thought the acting was really good and there was some really good dialogue. I'm guessing I was put off by his accent, which was dumb in my part.

There wasn't much that I didn't like on the rewatch. Beocca was my guy. I loved that dude. Finan was awesome in every scene. Sihtric and Osferth was really good too. Pyrlig banter was great also.

Looking objectively, Aldhelm was really the only guy making even decent decisions. That's just a sidenote, but he's really the only politician worth following. Save, maybe Aethylflead. But she does a bunch of dumb shit too. I found myself glad that dude made it to the end.

I laughed for a week when Uhtred let Sihtric shack up with a chick.

"Thank you Lord! I will name my first child Uhtred!"

"You will NOT."

"Right. I will not."

:-)

If this is the end of the series, I'm glad I binged the whole thing. There is a lot of connective tissue and continuity that gets lost in the time between seasons that I thought I was getting, but I apparently was not. It really is a lot better show than I gave it credit for.

1883 is fantastic. Someone here recommended it, and I wanted to say thanks.

I can't be the only one here enjoying The Dropout about Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos (on Hulu). I didn't have much background information on the real-life events (not much into tech or Silicon Valley stuff), and it's tempting to spoil it by looking up the real-life persons (particularly the good guys, like Kevin Hunter and the first inventor of the box who challenged Holmes) after each episode.

I haven't went that direction because I read (well listened to) Bad Blood by John Carreyrou. It was pretty definitive. I also listened to Thicker Than Water by Tyler Schultz, who was one of the whistleblowers. His grandpa, former SOS George Schultz was a major investor, and the family dynamics were interesting as hell. And it was pretty amazing to see the story from the perspective from a green 20 year old kid.

As interesting as the story is, I'd recommend getting the entire story from the book.

Same thing with We Crashed. This spring I listened to The Cult of We by Eliot Brown and Maureen Farrell. It is also pretty definitive.

I can't imagine a few hours of heavily dramatized dialogue will take the place of 30 hour books.

I'm a total nerd for business. And the frauds these guys manage to pull off for a shocking amount of time never ceases to amaze. I always feel like I need a shower when I'm done, but I can't help myself. I just have to listen to the books.

I just finished Ted Lasso - which was truly a joy - and am deciding between Super Pumped (uber), The Drop Out (Theranos), and WeCrashed (WeWork).

So much corporate misbehavior, so little time.
