Recommend me some TV shows

JDawg's picture
Rank: Gorilla | 591

Ideally the show I'm looking for contains most of these attributes:
(1) draws me in within the first 5 minutes of the first episode (I have a low attention span).
(2) mentally stimulating
(3) good sense of humor (eg. Arrested Development is good, How I Met Your Mother and The Office are extremely fucking lame and I hate anyone who enjoys those shows)

A good example of what I'm talking about is House of Lies. It's both smart and hilarious. Suits is also good (mainly b/c of Harvey, the main character is kind of a faggot although I admire his intelligence).

Here are my opinions on other shows that I've watched or attempted to watch:
* Dexter - first season was incredible. 2nd and 3rd were good. I got bored once he got married
* Burn Notice - good although I stopped watching it a while ago
* Sherlock - decent
* Game of Thrones, watched 4 episodes but couldn't get into it
* Mad Men - watched 1.5 episodes and couldn't get into it
* White Collar - I hate that old guy and don't give a fuck about his relationship with his fat wife
* Breaking Bad - wasted 30 mins before saying "fuck this" (should've seen it coming though b/c I didn't find the premise even remotely interesting)
* Californication - gave it like 20 minutes I think
* Workaholics - stupid and not funny
* Seinfeld - Classic

Also I don't watch anime anymore but my high school self enjoyed the hell out of Death Note and Elfen Lied.

Ok given what I just said, recommend me some shows. Actually you can go ahead and recommend me movies too. Non-fiction is ok too.

Private Practice, The Mentalist, The Big Bang Theory, Suits

Second Suits suggestion. Like BBT too,

Jul 14, 2012

you have an awful taste in shows. maybe watch the hills or the bachelor?

Jul 14, 2012

Agree with ai215. Maybe try watching the Kardashians or something.....?

I always recommend The Wire to people, but since you did not like Sherlock, GofT, or MM I guess you would hate it, too. Even though it is the best thing ever put on television.......

You might like The Family Guy or The Cleveland Show.

30 rock

Curb Your Enthusiasm is the funniest show I've ever seen.

Here to learn and hopefully pass on some knowledge as well. SB if I helped.

Jul 14, 2012

While I'm glad to see you enjoy Seinfeld, I have to say, if you dont find the Office hilarious, you're hopeless.

Jul 14, 2012

my favorites are:

i also like some of the ones you rejected like mad men and game of thrones.

Jul 14, 2012

Rugrats.

Jul 14, 2012

how many eps of workaholics did you watch? The first season is weak compared to the second and third. Skip the 1st, try watching the 2nd.

Jul 14, 2012

Stop recommending me Suits I already said it was good (second paragraph of my original post). I've seen a couple episodes of Community and thought it was funny. I'm looking for something a little more "smart" though rather than just a pure comedy.

Sorry didn't realize so many of you would be butthurt over me dissing The Office. Wait, on second thought, no I'm not sorry.

How I Met Your Mother

Dora the Explorer - but stop watching after season 4 it really goes downhill after that.

Reruns of Jerry Springer. Midgets are always funny.

I forgot about Justified, badass show.

Here to learn and hopefully pass on some knowledge as well. SB if I helped.

Jul 16, 2012

Louie is a good recommendation, as is Curb.

Jul 16, 2012

House of Lies is the biggest pos ever put on TV, you clearly have terrible taste in television

there's more drama in one episode of this show than like a whole season of any other tv show. fuckin epic.

For those of us fortunate enough not to have finals, or done with school all together, the Jersey Shore drinking game seems like a great way to spend an hour. Just don't drink yourself to the death, which could very well happen here.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unSDz8pLMCU

Yeah, 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.

Jul 16, 2012

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.

Is Treme good? I was planning on watching it just based on the fact that David Simon made the Wire but I heard it was a bunch of crap. Might give it a look

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.

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

Jul 16, 2012

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.

Jul 16, 2012

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.

Jul 16, 2012

Breaking Bad and Mad Men.

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!

Check the season-7 of weeds. Nancy gets out of prison, the kids are all grown up and independent. I think the new season is better than ever.
Agreed season 6 got a lil bit fucked up!!

Jul 16, 2012

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.

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

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.

I got into Southland when it was still airing. Different from the traditional police bullshit shows, i.e. Blue Bloods. If I have to watch another one of those stupid scenes at the dinner table, I'd go crazy.

Most of my favorites have been mentioned already. Fringe on FOX is a show that I've recently gotten into.

Jul 16, 2012

On the other hand, Psych is great.

Jul 16, 2012

Top Gear, Archer

Top Gear, Archer

My response as well. Everyone should watch Archer - I don't find a lot of shows funny (I cannot believe anyone voluntarily watches Big Bang Theory and HIMYM, for example) but Archer is all sorts of awesome. Give it a try.

And Top Gear is great, probably won't find it as entertaining if you don't care at all about cars, but the hosts are hilarious regardless.

I really like Steve Buscemi, but I can't get into Boardwalk. The greatest HBO shows are still the The Wire with the Sopranos coming in a close 2nd.

Shows on TV right now - 30 Rock is great. Doesn't get much better than Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin and Tracy Morgan. Plus Tina Fey is a complete smoke show.

South Park still has it. I'm waiting for them to do an episode on Wall St. The royal Canadian Wedding was fucking hilarious.

Jul 16, 2012

I watch a lot of TV, and if you are looking for good reviews on TV check out hitfix.com and Alan Sepinwall, he does a really good job. With that said--

Best Dramas are by far Breaking Bad and Justified

If you want an older show that a lot of people probably haven't watched, but is according to many the best TV show ever created, check out The Wire from HBO

As far as comedy's go Parks and Recreation and Community are both really good, Community kind of goes out on a limb with a lot of things, where as Parks and Rec is more of a solid show week to week.

Weeds is coming back in a few weeks, but to be honest Nancy Botwin just sucks now, and the show went very downhill after season 4.

Jul 16, 2012

You like pizza, I like tacos. To each his own. Different strokes for different folks.

BUT any young guy who doesn't like at least one of 30 Rock, The Office, and/or It's Always Sunny is probably weird and boring.

Forgot about Spartacus. From what I heard it got interrupted due to the main actor getting cancer, but it's supposed to come back on and continue with the first season's plot. Great, great show, though wasn't as big a fan of the second "season" (if you can call it a season given its brevity).

Jul 16, 2012

Have you guys read the books behind Game of Thrones? They're definitely very solid, would recommend them to anyone with a fair amount of spare time.

Definitely a fan of Breaking Bad / Dexter / Community / Modern Family. The strongest season of Dexter was either the second (with Doakes) or the ..fourth? with Trinity. The most recent one was shit comparatively. For those of you who watch Community, I'm really hoping that Chevy Chase hasn't been written out of the show. Thoughts?

I'm pretty sure Chevy Chase is out, either completely or a least as a regular. Him and Chang were legitimately unsettling at some points in the season which was weird considering how hysterical they were in the first.

I'm afraid the show is Chang-ing too much.

That's a funny story. I especially like the comments about how "fake and ugly" the girl is, as if any of them could land anything marginally approaching her.

Patrick Bateman would eat Eddie Morra's lunch (and probably his brains).

Does anyone else watch Sherlock? It's a modern take on the Sherlock Holmes adventures by BBC, with rights to air it in the US owned by PBS. It's only had one season so far, with ~3 episodes per season (few episodes but each one is about 90min uninterrupted).

If you like the stories and/or mystery shows, check it out.

Speaking of BBC-type shows, the second season of Luther started the other night. Definitely a great show.

Game of Thrones got better and better as the season progressed. Episode 4 was the only bad one. Last half of the season was EPIC.

It'll be interesting to see how the war plays out (no spoilers please from the book readers), how they show the battles and stuff...war scenes could require a massive set and cast/crew.

Just got into Justified. Olyphant is a badass.

Anybody here watch the new show Suits on USA Network? Just finished watching the 2nd episode and it's pretty good so far.

Jul 16, 2012

Dexter was great up until this past season, hopefully they bring it back around for season 6. Modern family still takes the cake for me though

Jul 16, 2012

Suits looks like it'll be a good summer series. Pilot made me happy, catching the 2nd episode online this weekend.

Just started watching this one and I like it. It's pretty cheesy but entertaining as hell. Acting isn't bad either.

As for HBO- True Blood has gotten weird but I'm not going to abandon it. I'll stick it out with Entourage for the last 8 episodes. Game of Thrones is awesome, and I might start the books this summer if I get time. I couldn't really get into Treme or Boardwalk Empire (I tried desperately to get hooked but it just didn't do it for me).

Whoever pointed out Sherlock was spot on. I saw the first 3 on my Dad's recommendation.

I watch Castle with the girlfriend.

I'm gonna be orginal here: Suits!

Its a new series following a college drop-out turned lawyer.. well almost. Only 2 episodes out so far, worth watching

Jul 16, 2012

dexter and entourage for me...
i still love them and i dont think i would miss out on any epi, no matter what...:)

Jul 16, 2012

Any HBO series is clearly the best, but they just figured out a winning formula.

BLUE MOUNTAIN STATE (BMS) is a great show that will never be recognized.

Jul 16, 2012

First of all, how was no one mentioned The League? Great show.

Second for Blue Mountain State, and Archer is also not getting enough love.

Anyone watch Secret Girlfriend on Comedy Central last year? Not sure if it's coming back but that was also one of my favorite comedies while it lasted.

Jul 16, 2012

Wilfred.

Jul 16, 2012

I've seen Blue Mountain State. Its OK.

I watched a few episodes of the Hard Times of RJ Berger recently. Its pretty funny, and the girl in it is smoking hot.

Loved the Killing in the end. Moved a little slowly to begin with but was pretty great.

Will have to check out Suits.

Jul 16, 2012

USA has definitely up'd its game this summer.

loving Suits, Royal Pains is decent if nothing else is on, Necessary Roughness is great, Covert Affairs makes me want to re-evaluate my career.

Jul 16, 2012

This week's episode of Suits was great. The character development is excellent.

Oh, and Meghan Markle is a slampiece.

This. Especially about Meghan Markle. Dime

Agree with design on everything.

I'm addicted to the First 48 and Criminal Minds

Entourage and Curb once they get back on the air for the summer

Jul 16, 2012

Suits is pretty awesome, no doubt.

Anyone seen Franklin and Bash? Its starting here in the UK, might give it a watch..

Makes me laugh, so pretty worthwhile.

Jul 16, 2012

Hmm, Covert Affairs turned out decent? I got through the pilot and half of the second episode and shut it off. Lost my interest, seemed too phony and not engaging enough.

Love USA shows in general though. Is it worth looking at?

Also, just got into Sons of Anarchy over the holiday weekend and watched the entire first season in a marathon. Addicting, which is weird because I have almost nothing in common with any of the characters. Riveting show though. Starting Game of Thrones when I get up to date on SOA.
