which isnt to say Aqua Teen, South Park and a few others arent worth my time, but i dont catch them regularly; i usually go see them when they're linked or someone tells me i missed something awesome.

Second season of True Blood (HBO) just started a few days ago. And a new season of Dexter (Showtime) will start up in September if I'm not mistaken. I miss having cable, lol.




(PS I know this a thread for shows you like and have seen, not up-and-coming, but I loooooove those two shows so much! lol)

TVB is one of the greatest animated series in the history of ever. Just ask Molotov Dr. Girlfriend.

In Treatment S2

Rescue Me S5

Royal Pains (first 2 episodes have been great so far)

Southland S1

Spaced S1

yeah, go ahead and add cartoons, i'm sure we all have some favorites there. i didn't include them cause it might overflow into animation forum territory. please add some kind of rating scale as to how much you liked each season for stuff you watched. and thanks for those that replied! Oh, need to add rome to that list...

i dont really stick with the episodic stuff, myself.


behind on Rescue Me and the first ep of True Blood season 2. glad a new Dexter's up, last season was good - ray-ray, you dont just torrent the shows like us?


oh, and since spiffy wanted ratings to some stuff:


Rescue Me - 4/5 on seasons 1-3, 2/5 on season 4, 5/5 right now.

Penn & Teller: Bullshit! - 5/5, enjoyable whilst you learn shit.

Deadwood - 4/5 only cause it needed another season/movie

The Wire - 5/5, prolly the best show on HBO and that's saying something

24 -4/5 for the first 2 or so seasons, i liked season 5 as well. 2-3/5 for all others.

The Shield - 5/5, best thing FX did.

Def Poetry Jam - 4/5 for most seasons, show's hit or miss by nature but what i saw of season 4 in particular, i loved

The Daily Show - 4/5, Colbert gets lumped in here too

Arrested Development - 5/5, best syndicated comedy

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - 4/5, first few seasons knocked it out of the park, last one dragged sadly.

Firefly - 5/5, set a new bar for sci-fi for me.

Heroes S1 = 4/5

Heroes S2 = 3.5/5

Six Feet Under (S1-S5) = 4/5

Spaced S1 = 4/5

Star Trek: The Next Generation (S1-S7) = 5/5 (Technically the series surpasses all ratings and really lives somewhere in the realm of geek crack or nerd nirvana)

The Office (US) (S1-S5) = 5/5

The Shield (S1-S5) = 5/5

  • 3 weeks later...
Just recently got done with both seasons of breaking bad. 5/5


Will put more in when i get around to it.


Caught a few episodes of that yeah. Pretty cool. Wierd hearing Hal curse and make crystal meth though heh.


Right now the only thing I'm watching religiously is new eps of Family Guy every wednesday. Prison Break season 3 is being re-run on Fox8 soon so I'll have to catch that, didn't see the end of that season but I hear season 4 isn't great. One show that definitely should have ended after season 2. Such a pity though, I used to be fucking fanatical about that show. I had a look at one of the new eps that are on and I have no idea whats going on.
