As title says.

With Friday Night Lights finished, and Dexter kinda losing its lustre, there's not a lot to watch on TV.

I like The Killing but just cant get into Boardwalk Empire or Game of Thrones.

Thoughts?

    Gonna be in the minority here (since I'm assuming most will recommend HBO shows), but I really, really like Modern Family

    Game of thrones.

    I just cant get into the fantasy shows or movies. I still havent seen any of the Lord of the Rings movies.

    I might check out the books for Game of Thrones first. Heard good things about them.

    My girlfriend is a big fan. Kinda like How I Met Your Mother.

    Good Wife is pretty good as well.

    for comedy - Chuck or Psych
    drama - breaking bad

    Currently airing new episodes? Game of thrones. Burn notice is coming back soon too; it's not a great show like game of thrones or treme, but it sure makes an hour go by quickly.

    Overall? 30 Rock and Parks & Rec for comedy, and I would still say Game of Thrones for Drama. The Glades on A&E is fun though. Shark Tank for reality by a country mile.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm and Seinfeld reruns.

    In 1976, James Hunt broke the sound barrier through Eau Rouge only to retire before the event finished... following the race he had sex with three Belgian nurses at the clubhouse near La Source.

    FinancialNoviceII:
    This show looks pretty good

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unSDz8pLMCU[/quote]..., it actually does. Liked the top-rated comment best though. "It looks great, but it's NBC so they'll cancel it before it gets good. They always do."

    For me, I'm a fan of a few USA shows: Burn Notice (easy watching, poor scripting at times but fun TV), White Collar, and Royal Pains. Also like Modern Family, and Archer is hilariously irreverent.

    Most people do things to add days to their life. I do things to add life to my days.

    I'm sure I'll be in the minority but Criminal Minds. I've always liked shows like Law & Order, Cold Case, etc.

  • RussianMonkey's picture

    What I follow when I can...

    Modern Family (Good)
    Community (Good)
    Dexter (Good, but trailing on)
    Entourage (I'm still in my teens so I'm aloud to watch this garbage)
    How I Met Your Mother (Good, until they started teasing the viewer, now it's getting annoying)
    Top Gear (VROOM!)

    Also if you have Netflix you should check out Rescue Me, show has got pretty much every aspect you could look for

  • design's picture

    Justified just wrapped up its 2nd season. Great show. Definitely recommend it to everyone. Rescue Me is currently in its final season. Another awesome show. Denis Leary does a great job.

  • loki276's picture

    Doctor Who, Top Gear, Sherlock, How I met your mother, walking dead

    Kinda into Vampire Diaries. My girl watched it before we broke up and now I'm into it.

    The girls are very hot.

    Same in Pretty Little Liars. The women are gorgeous"!

    I guess favorite" is relative but I'm thinking "best"

    Breaking Bad by far

    Sons of Anarchy is pretty solid
    Mad Men has has peaks and Valleys.

    Comedies are great, love Seinfeld more than life, and parks and rec, modern fam, and office when it was good, but I wouldn't categorize any of them as better than a well done dramatic series.

    Yeah, it's one of my all-time favorites. My favorite scene...

    NSFW: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smciRU0d38U

    I was laughing for about 5 minutes straight after that scene.

    I defninitely recommend you do. It's a show filled with bad-assery. Timothy Olyphant just oozes cool.

    Detest South Park.

    Got to check out Justified I guess.

    Surprised no more Friday night Lights fans.

  • Frank Slaughtery's picture

    Currently airing - breaking bad, game of thrones, mad men, always sunny in philadelphia

    the wire and the sopranos are easily the two best shows of all time though (and the wire is the clear cut #1, watch it immediately if you haven't yet)

    I might have to agree with this entire post. I will add Justified and Archer as good current shows and Dexter season 1 as best season of any tv show ever. I used to hate American Dad, but I find it utterly hilarious now.

    Also, different type of program so not in the running for best, but who has seen the Ross Kemp show? That guy is badass!

  • DontMakeMeShortYou's picture

    No love for Californication?

  • jjcannon's picture

    Weeds was great until the plot got all f'd up and confusing. Can't wait for Breaking Bad and Mad Men to return...

    Not a huge fan of the wire.... cool plot but the eps are too long for me to care...

  • baddebt88's picture

    Check out The Borgias. Its about the Italian family of Cesare Borgia, same guy that inspired some of Machiavelli's writing. There is a good story line, banging boobs, and awesome violence. What more can you want.

  • equity_player's picture

    Sopranos... best TV in the history of TV.

  • APAE's picture

    Guys. Look at the title. Best show on TV now.

    Why is everyone ignoring GEORDIE SHORE, the UK version of JERSEY SHORE??? Unlike Jersey, Geordie has hot girls, boobs, constant hooking up, etc. They've been there for three nights so far, and this one kid has already hooked up with a total of four girls!!! More girls than nights!!!!!

  • SDBall22's picture

    The Killing

    I like The Event also. I heard it's getting cancelled though, so I don't know how they will end the current season.

    Are you serious? Those shows are what's wrong with TV

  • Frank Slaughtery's picture

    entourage and californication have gone downhill, although still worth watching. dexter is solid, first two seasons were the best but last season was good. the season with jimmy smits sucked

    surprised nobody has mentioned shameless - big fan of it.

    Really? I thought with Dexter, the seasons go in reverse order in terms of their strengths and how good they were, with Season 4 being fucking awesome. John Lithgow was great.

    Havent caught up with Season 5 yet but heard bad things. I suppose its hard to follow up with how they left it at the end of 4.

    Entourage has definitely taken a turn for the worse, stopped watching about last season.

    Shameless hasnt gotten much publicity across the pond, weird as how its a copy from the British show so doubt they will show it here but Emmy Rossum is hot.
