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.

Watch Banshee.

Don't get me wrong, there are a TON of tits. I am a fan of tits. That is public record, but I made it through like 3 seasons, and I just....couldn't. I'm a cold hearted son of a bitch, but even I have limits of how much... I don't know.... losing, maybe, one story can tell. No redemption, very little character moments that aren't ruined by ****ery, and generally, no ****ing happiness.

I dunno. Maybe I missed it.

Your other entries though, first class. I'm a total schlub for Bosch - I'm bordering on groupie.
I watched the entire series over again as nothing else I could find was as good. As luck would have it, the next day after I finished season 10, season 11 was released on NetFlix. Good times.

Finished it.

The dialogue was so long-winded and felt totally unnecessary for the most part. To make it worse, it's that damn whisper dialogue where every conversation is being had in a library. So damn boring. There were moments where i straight up fast forwarded through the dialogue. Some people think long dialogue scenes = quality story telling. Maybe those folks will like that shit.

I thought the last two episodes were pretty good. I felt like if they condensed episodes 1-5 into 30mins followed by episodes 6-7 they woulda had a decent movie.

Main monster dude was creepy to look at. And when preacher-man discovered his "craving" was a pretty dang good scene, if you know what i mean.

I know many don't like Dr. Who, but I'm still looking forward to the coming season.

Watching it now. It's great. Funny and sad.

My girl Daddario showing off some acting skills, too. She's really good in it.

If you don't mind foreign shows, The Chestnut Man on Netflix was a decent binge. Only 6 episodes, in a James Patterson murder mystery vein.

Nothing new by any means but a good filler.

I started watching Ted Lasso last night, completely confident that I would not even make it through the pilot before I decided I hated it.

Fast forward to midnight when I had stayed up two extra hours to finish streaming season 1.

Pretty much my experience.

Season 1 is so pure. There is barely an ounce of fat on that magnificent season of TV. I don't personally feel the same about season 2 (though the finale is really good).
