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.

Not yet, but on the agenda. Thanks.

EDIT - actually I saw the BFQoE clear back last January. I thought you had somehow already found the one soon to air for THIS year. So yeah, seen it, enjoyed it, fell a LITTLE infatuated with Oti Mabuse [if you haven't had the chance to see her on the British version of those dancing shows, that's her thing, she's the pro dancer who coaches the celebs, basically GBs version of Julianne Hough].

EDIT EDIT - here you go [I swear at :25 in, even SHAKIRA grabbed a notepad and started scribbling].

If you're a fan of Carr, his new show is I Literally Just Told You

There's just 3 eps out, but watch them in order, so you get acclimatized to the format in Ep1. Won't say more at the moment

Episodes streamed on youtube behind spoiler

Taskmaster is also a good Brit show. Would I lie to you is hilarious. Cw is doing an American version but since it's cw it'll probably be crap.

Just finished season 2 of Gomorrah, it was great. Great show but I think I'm pretty much done with the show, it's just too intense, dark, and violent. 2 seasons is enough for me.

I recommend it if you are into that stuff, it's the real deal.

I tried an episode of Gomorrah dubbed in English and just couldn't make it through. I really wanted to with 3.5 more seasons left to go, but it turned into an immediate TNT level show with those English voiceovers.

Going to power through with the subtitles because its that good of a show thus far.

Yeah I tried it too. I'm going to give it a go, but it's not something I can have on in the background.

Subtitles is definitely the way to go.

I might try the next 3 seasons in a bit, I just need a break from the constant violence and cutthroat nature of the show.

Speaking of, I re-watched the Punisher series on Netflix. I absolutely love that shit. Bernthal is so goddamned good and the fight choreography is excellent. It's not perfect, but I love it. I've probably been through the series 10 times, and it never gets old.

Just finished season 4 of Gomorrah. Wowwwwwwww............

The first two seasons are super dark and fairly linear. The third season takes it on a slightly different path that's still intense. And then season 4 involves a very different arc and is a bit more complex (and relaxed) but concludes brilliantly.

What a show. Excited so many of you are giving it a try. I can't really stack it up against things like The Wire, Sopranos, and Boardwalk Empire in an apples-to-apples way given the language/subtitles/dubbing. but it's as enjoyable as anything I've ever watched aside from maybe Game of Thrones.

Season 5 is already out in Italy in its entirety and just premiered in the UK. Coming to HBO Max some time early next year.

So there's a personal connection as he seeks out the truth, often times doubting the work of his own father and idol growing up.

Its not Steven Avery gripping, but its a good story and well made. Took like 10 years in the making. Every person featured in the documentary is a true character.

Fun fact, I had never heard of these murders until scrolling through HBO Max last night but during the pandemic the wife and I would drive down to Starved Rock every so often just to get out of the city for a day. We took a selfie in the canyon where the womens bodies were found. I'm sure there's a gazillion selfies taken there a year but its kind of ominous to look at the pic now.

Heh - about 9-10 years, we bought property right outside Starved Rock State Park and tried to get it permitted to mine for Frac Sand. HOLY SHIT! You would have thought we were putting up a coal fired power plant INSIDE the park. It was a lot of work, and a lot of shit slinging that we had to take, but we got it done. :-)

I plan to watch that series soon. Thanks!

Judging just on how everyone from that area who was portrayed in the documentary had their own special sauce of eccentricity, that doesn't surprise me.
