For off-topic and non-football related topics such as life, TV, movies, women, video games, etc. If you want to talk other sports, such as MLB, NBA, soccer, etc. this is also the right place.

Favorite TV Shows

Postby Pudge » Sat May 17, 2014 12:12 am

I don't know about you guys, but I watch quite a bit of TV. What are some of your favorite shows to watch?

Here's some of my faves over the years in no particularly order.

Game of Thrones
Breaking Bad
Sons of Anarchy
The Americans

I need to watch the Wire (thinking that might be a pet project for the summer). I don't watch the Walking Dead, just couldn't stick with it after 2 seasons.

Also anything you're currently watching?

I liked the new show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and how they found their groove in the 2nd half of the season. Looking forward to how its weaved into Marvel Cinematic Universe after Captain America 2 this past season.Avengers 2 comes out next summer, so I expect the end of Season 2 to be huge.

Fav TV shows oh man that is a hard one. Since I've been working on cruise ships since 2011 I don't really get a lot of time to watch tv shows and it's hard for me to like a show. I guess hands down for me it's Big Bang Theory. I never used to watch it but being on a ship you had little selection. There was a 24 hour a day Wizard of Oz channel so I got tired of that pretty quickly. I started watching Big Bang Theory because it was really the only think on besides cricket and rugby. I tape a lot of old old shows and watch them. I'll have to expand the fairly new stuff and go with my all time favorites.

1.Star Trek (original series)
2. One Step Beyond
3. Psi Factor
4.Big Bang Theory
5.Friday the 13th TV series
6.Lois and Clark
7.Voyage To The Bottom of the Sea
8.The Munsters
9.Twilight Zone
10.The Outer Limits
11.The Night Stalker
12.Wild Wild West
13.In Search Of
14.Arthur C Clarke

As you can see I like weird stuff. I particularly like weird stuff that it actually could be true (so the narrator claims it is like Psi Factor.One Step Beyond). I like shows that have a bit of super powers to them which is why I like the comic book character movies. I sometimes buy the complete sets of these TV shows burn them on my hard drive and watch them on the ship. I'm sure I could think of a few more. My list is no particular order except I would go with Star Trek being my all time fav show.

Disappointed that you have yet to check out The Wire, probably one of the best shows ever. Eastbound and Down is hilarious.

Don't watch much. The Wire is great, Pudge. We watched it corner to corner a while back via Netflix. What I do watch is a result of my daughter who is 21 going on 14. Murder porn (ID channel, Law and Order SVU) and Dr. Phil. She admits she only likes horrible TV. I agree. I do watch Madmen and, of course, some football and baseball. If it were never turned on again I wouldn't complain.
