No idea why this thread didn't exist before, but it does now.

Been binging on my Power Rangers 8-12 boxset.
Lightspeed Rescue: 7/10 (Liked most of it, but the villains sucked and the Battilizers were meh)
Time Force: 9/10 (Don't care if Ransik is not sympathetic, he still rocks)
Wild Force: 7/10 (Due largely to CG Zords and Animus)

ok I will bite

 

honestly, I had no idea it would be a good show at all, but Lilyhammer on Netflix is pretty interesting. Maybe I just long for cold, snowy weather and mountains. But, it is good.

 

Last show I saw that I thought would be good but I ended up hating- American Horror Story season 1. That shit got so dumb around episode 6 and by the time it ended I was cursing out loud about why it was so drawn out and lame.

I'm pretty sure we did have a TV thread somewhere.

Either way, I just finished season 1 of Homeland. Very good show if you enjoy CIA stuff.

 

Just got started on season 2 of American Horror Story and Lillyhammer.

Just finished season 4 of the wire. Good show but kinda boring. I don't get why everyone raves about it. I'm now committed to finishing it though since I only have 1 season left.

I totally agree. It's a good show but I also don't understand the huge acclaim. It's worth watching though and sorta plays out like a novel.

How The Universe Works - Pretty good documentary/science fact and astronomy show. It's on Netflix, around 8 episodes and narrated by Mike Rowe. If you never got the opportunity to take Astronomy and Astrophysics in college, this show will pretty much teach all you need to know (and fear) about the universe.

 

Currently watching Mad Men (Season 3) and Lost Girl (season 3).

Arrow - after hearing cheapy and wombat rave about how good season 2 has been I finally bit and have just about made it through season 1. I've been pleasantly surprised so far. Just how I like my comic book heroes, a little on the dark side.

New girl - just started watching this at the end of season 2. Gotta say that I haven't laughed so hard at a tv show since Seinfeld!!! Highly recommend to anyone that loves smart, quirky humor

Revolution - started of with an interesting premise but has now completely run off the tracks. I really have no idea where they are headed with this show, but I'm not going to waste anymore of my time watching. So typical of nbc post 2000

Breaking Bad season 5 - finished episode 2. It's just sooo good but I'm starting to dislike Walt at this stage.

Person of interest season 2 - this show is complete badass.

Wasn't that the whole point of the show?

Up until this point I could understand Walters motivations and to an extent sympathise with him but now its gone past that point and I feel he's lost himself.

Again, I don't think the overall point of the show was to sympathize with Walt. It's a villain story with an origin extending multiple seasons instead of a 2-parter.

The viewer is supposed to sympathize with Skyler and (after Season 1) Jessie. And the brother, who for some reason the name is blanking on me.

You mean Hank. I guess we have differences of opinions on this thing.

All the guys I know see it like I do. We're not too keen on Jessie or Skylar.

Everyone hated Skylar. I think once you watch the rest you'll feel differently.

Which is funny since if Breaking Bad actually happened, Skylar would be on Today and all the morning shows as the victim (at least, through Seasons 1-3) and Walt would be demonized like hell.

The title of this thread is falsely assuming that the last TV show that I saw was good. This is either a deliberate attack on my taste in television or the title should've been something along the lines of "What was the last TV show you watched that made you surprised at the quality of it?"

Well, the movie thread specifies "Didn't Suck" yet people post stuff they dislike all the time.

Meanwhile, finished Ninja Storm. 6/10 Every villain not named Vexacus sucked, not a big fan of the suits or Zords, and pretty much everything with Sensei was bungled. Cam, Shane, and Tori were good, though. Sally Martin could really fill out that ninja outfit.

Doctor Who Christmas Special: 9/10

Didn't like seeing Matt Smith get old and the cop out for the Doctor's name was annoying but it was overall excellent.

Hopefully this season Clara will finally get to do something. She was shunted during both specials and barely had tine to do much of anything in her half-season before.

I think I might be the only person who actually likes Agents of Shield.  Granted, most of that is cause its a great way to see Clark Gregg every week and the rest of the cast is bland but its still not bad to watch.

 

Also, I'm in season 2 of Breaking Bad right now and I cant stand Skylar.

Power Rangers DinoThunder: 9/10

Loved the show. The cast was excellent, the fighting great, and the music catchy. Didn't like he non-White Ranger costumes and Mesagog's final form.

The special features disc was awesome too. Loved seeing the RPM rangers again. Sean Cw Johnson (Carter/Lightspeed Red) has lost a LOT of weight (EDIT: Eh, comparing the footage, Carter is pretty bony too), Alison MacInnis looks nothing like Dana anymore, Jessica Rey has matured a lot since Alyssa, and it was nice to see the VAs for Zedd, Rita, and Goldar. Had no idea Robert Axelrod was so old. Surprised they went after Jennifer Yen since everybody hated her acting. Erin Cahill is still hot.

Shout Factory was OK with the extras, though no DinoThunder retrospective is EXTREMELY disappointing. Especially since it denied us another chance to finally see Mesagog singing Kira's song "Patiently." It gets even stupider since SF used the DinoThunder menus and music for the extras! The Lightspeed, ADR, and Titanium Ranger extras were great, but Time Force, Wild Force, and Ninja Storm combined to be about as long as Lightspeed Rescue. Also, none of them talk about the villains or secondary characters (sans Lightspeed).

Another media thread that uses my bashed thread title from years ago. Thanks for keeping it up! On topic however, I am working my way through season 1 of Hannibal. A very very well shot show with an alright story at this point.

Dave's Old Porn. It's pretty goddamn hilarious. It reminds me how much I loved Dave Attell's Insomniac and how much I enjoy both his stand up and interacting with people with no script.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

I've been watching more movies than TV lately, but I did decide to watch the first season of Louie on Netflix. I thought it was pretty damn funny. It does have a lot of really awkward moments though. I mean the really awkward moments. Sometimes I mute the TV.

That show is awesome, finished season 1 a while ago. I feel the opposite in that I'm opening to a lot more tv shows. Need to finish the last 8 episodes of Breaking Bad, then need to finish up orphan black season 1. Also got season 2 of arrow, season 4 of walking dead, season 3 of Archer to start watching. Then if I have enough time, I wanna check out The Americans and Justified lol.

Only new show I'm keeping up with is Almost Human, watched the pilot and was pleasantly surprised.

 

Spartacus season one, was a little meh until about episode 6 or so. Normally wouldn't hold out so long, but glad I have. Breaking Bad and Homeland are on the Netflix backlog.

I watched Bates Motel S1 and The Killing S3 this week. Bates Motel was really good and I'm looking forward to the second season in March. The Killing, I've loved the show since the beginning, and I liked the third season more than the first two. I'm glad Netflix picked it up to give it a proper final season this year.

 

Also, the second season of Banshee on Cinemax starts this week. If you like good action shows, I highly recommend tracking down the first season.

 

Also,  a new season of Justified starts this week. It may be the best show on TV now that Breaking Bad is finished.
