What's good on tv?

My only wish is that TBS becomes the "Roadhouse" channel... then the circle will be complete

The problem with "Arrested Development" was that you have to have seen the prior episodes to get all of the jokes. I can't recommend renting this show and watching it in marathon enough.

The Apprentice is always worth watching. They show both the US and UK version over here. The US one is worth watching for the sheer WTFness of Trump's persona. The British one is kind of better all round, with more compelling contestants.

Comedy:

Peep Show
Green Wing
Family Guy (they're showing season 4 on TV here now)
of course South Park

THREADSURRECTION

Here's what I watch now......


Game of Thrones
The Walking Dead
Big Bang Theory


that's pretty much it for me these days. Breaking Bad is gone, Dexter is gone (been shitty for years) and True Blood is supposed to be coming up in it's final season (much like Dexter, it has sucked dick for years so who cares about the last season). There's just not much worth keeping up with. I did watch the first episode of Arrow, it was pretty good, just don't know if I can really get into it. Also, tried to watch some of the Agents of Shield and it looked shitty.

There is some new horrible reality show on, it came on after Raw last night. Some family called The Crispety's or Crispeys or some shit. The main dude is the show is like a gay deep southern Christian Cage. OMG IS THAT SHIT HORRID.

Mad Men
Game of Thrones
The Walking Dead
House of Cards (Netflix only)
Orange is the New Black (Netflix only)

I've been watching Resurrection but am now convinced that despite good efforts from a few actors (Red Foreman, Black House), this show sucks. I think the 24 special event looks great. "The Following" was a guilty pleasure but is bad to the point of unwatchable now.

For comedies:
South Park
Modern Family
Always Sunny
Archer

that's it.

Shows currently on that I watch:
Mad Men
Archer
Community
Arrow
Agents of SHIELD (sometimes)
The Americans (this show is awesome, by the way)
SNL (sometimes)
Veep
Daily Show
Colbert (sometimes)

And The Walking Dead and It's Always Sunny when they're on.

I think they fucked up by not putting the Americans on Netflix. Or Amazon Prime needs to make free shipping a seperate annual price and offer a per month price for their streaming service.

I watch SNL quite a bit. I never watch it when it airs, but I wind on catching up on it later on Netflix or XBMC.

Small note: Netflix edits SNL quite heavily...no musical performances and they edit out alot of scenes or mistakes. Usually, you can catch the unedited commercial free versions on xbmx via 1channel (which is the way to go).

Yeah...another example would be the episode Mick Jagger hosted a couple of years ago got completely butchered down to like 35 minutes or something by all the online sites that carry SNL because of copyright issues, even though the guy who helped right the songs in the first place was on the show. Stoopid media lawyers. I always DVR the show when I want to watch it instead of relying on Hulu for that reason.

I've heard good things about the Americans - I'm not sure why I haven't dug in because Keri Russell does it for me and word is she gets fucked regularly there.

Agents of SHIELD fucking sucks. That is a miserably terrible abortion of a show.

I've had a few people telling me I should check out the Hannibal series.

Also, I have never watched a single episode of Sons of Anarchy or Mad Men. I've been kinda hesitant to start up a new series.

I am pretty sure I was one of the people telling you about Hannibal.

It's the darkest show I've seen on network TV in a very long time; some really gruesome violence. I still think the acting for the Hannibal character (dude who played Le Chiffre in Casino Royale) is really good, but the main character (Will Starling) is pretty weak and the overarching plot line is mediocre. It's not BAD, it's just not great.
