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.

These are the next two new shows that I am 1000% not going to miss...




Always loved Cowboy Bebop and that looks ****īng nuts in the best possible way, but this next trailer is the big one for me...



That show could really be everything that Game of Thrones was for its first 5 years, if it's done well. Although I think the book series is too long to ever finish on TV. But The Eye of the World is a fantastic book that should make for some great viewing.

Yeah, I was super impressed with the production values. Acting, choreography, sets, and there are some really wide shots that cost money. There was one pretty significant continuity error, and there is some superhero type toughness in there, but other than that it was pretty great. By the time it all shook out, the twists were all out and I wanted to see how it played out. Sign of a good show.

Definitely takes you for a ride.

Has anyone sampled 'Guilty Party?' It's a little intriguing, but not for dispositive reasons, so I'm looking for input.

The potential for satire is good, but could easily be butchered [to my tastes]. The prospect of ogling Miss Katie is nearly sufficient in itself, but she's also appearing to try to make a go as a real actress, as opposed to eye-candy. If it works, I'm amenable, but if it sucks, someone warn me.



Obligatory, but spoilered to avoid clutter spoiler removed because it fucks up embeds

Kate Beckinsale

Since everybody is starting to get into KDrama, here's a few I thought were fun (subs, not dubs)...

Trying to decide whether to check out. Tough to tell if it'll be bonkers bad or bonkers good, but the reviews are coming in and seem promising.

This is eminently worth a check out, I thought I had recommended the first season, but I can't find it right now.

It's pretty much what you get a sense of from the trailer. An odd-duck NYer who has an eye for detail narrating some of his observations about city life.

Kind of a cross of Joe Pera Talks with You and Koyaanisqatsi. . .



EDIT - a sample, and yes that is [was?] Paul Atriedes.

I know there aren't a lot of dads in here my age with 6 and unders, but if you are and haven't watched this show, you best do so before I come over and make you do it clockwork orange style. Darn it this show is exceptional. I laugh a ton, sometimes it gets a little misty in the room, but it gives you an appreciation for what an important job parenting is. Sometimes when you are staring at your phone while you aren't engaging with your kids, Bandit (the dad) will really show you up and make you feel terrible. Because as a parent, we could always be doing better.

Wow, that looks really good. Gonna add this to my watchlist. Thanks BL.

Also I’m probably really late to the party on Gomorrah on HBO. We’re about half way through season 1, and holy shit it is really good and intense. It’s like a more serious Sopranos, but takes place in Rome. Been hard to stop at the e d of each episode cuz I wanna see what’s going to happen next.

Gomorrah is one of the best european series of the last decades. Looking forward in December for the last season of the series.
