TV series recommendation thread

Postby MaitreDétective » February 24th, 2013, 12:45 pm

Hi guys,

I was thinking of beginning watching the following series: The Chronicles of Young Indiana Jones, The BigBang Theory and Castle

Any thoughts on these?

Castle is awesome!

There's a thread for it around here somewhere, too.  Don't know anything about the others.

it's not bad, wish there was more zombies though.  And some of the characters make me pull out my hair.  I used to read the comics before the tv adaptation.

"IT Crowd" is awesome, though it doesn't show its full potential until second season. It's quite short, only 4 seasons 6epsx20min each :(, but extremely enjoyable, I had to take extra care not drink while watching.

Breaking Bad would be my recommendation. Pretty sure it's all still on Netflix too.

Castle is good, albeit repetitive. The Big Bang theory is a lot of fun. There are a lotta good shows out there. Many more options will be available to you.......

Black Mirror's good. Very heavy handed with the messages behind it, but still. There's no order to the 'episodes' either because they all have an entirely different cast and plot.

I'll be honest, I watched an episode of Big Bang Theory once, and even as someone whose gotten through some terrible television, I could barely get through it. I was just sinking into the couch, dying...

Don't watch Big Bang Theory. It's like a minstrel show with nerds instead of black people.

Watch IT Crowd instead. It's actually written by people that don't need to do research on the subject and is genuinely funny.

It's the laugh track: *mediocre joke* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA *even worse joke* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA

Plus, I feel like the people writing the show have never met an actual nerd before.  I don't know anyone that acts like that >_>.

Anyway, mini-rant aside, I enjoy Psych a lot.  I probably watch it more for the comedy than the mystery, but it does a good job of showing the relevant clues.  I haven't watched it lately though, so I don't remember how well it lays out the clues and lets you figure it out for yourself.  And even though it's a comedy series, the Yin/Yang episodes were some of my favorites.

Also, if you've never watched Scrubs before, go do it now.

If you still want to see Big Bang Theory because you want a "nerdy show" fix, just watch Futurama. At least that show gets it right.

I'd like to watch a show on tv that isn't Toonami again btw.

Probably Game of Thrones because why not.
