Just a fun post for everyone. I'd like to know your favourite tv series and why, that's all I'm personally torn between The Walking Dead and Prison Break, although I think PB takes the spot but only just.
I just realized I haven't watched a tv series in quite a while. But when I did, I was hooked on "Lost". It was a show full of surprises, mystery, an intriguing plot, and an attractive cast! The setting was pretty, too (an island).
AHh, you need to find something to watch and get hooked, it's awesome! I'm hooked on breaking bad and walking dead at the moment. I started to watch Lost but couldn't get into it for some reason so I might give it another go.
There are some shows that are pretty cool, and yet I still don't always get into them, so I can understand why you couldn't get into "Lost". My cousin is into at least one of the two shows you mentioned.
I've recently started watching Nashville, My mad fat diary and Utopia all highly addictive and great viewing. I used to enjoy Lost too, I didn't get to see it after it went to Sky though, so I have absolutely no idea what happened.
Awesome idea! I forgot about Netflix. There are some shows that play on certain online sites for free, and in times past I have watched that way. But once I get really behind, it's nice to ave a DVD to watch.
Ah, I watched the first 2 seasons of Spartacus and found it very good. I'm also very much into ancient history such as the romans and the spartans. I've not seen Game of Thrones yet but that looks awesome too!
It follows Simcha Jacobovici as he bops around the Holy Land looking for archaeological evidence of Biblical stories, clues as to who ancient peoples were, and insights into how people lived in those days.
It's a bunch of half-hour documentaries with a comedic tone. He uses footage from old movies or humorous illustrations to make the points presented easier to visualize, and perhaps just to make it more entertaining, too.
Easily The Shield, probably followed by The Wire. But The Shield was just something else. It really got me going. Great performances for great characters, lots of layers to each character, such dark tones, very raw approach. Loved it.
As for The Wire, it has such a broad scope, such great ambition. It's something that I can always relate to anything that's happening in society.
well, the OP didn't specify new or old, so I'm going to have to go with old. (I don't really watch TV anymore, nothing of interest to watch) and I can't choose just one!
In no particular order:
M*A*S*H Northern Exposure Picket Fences ER The Waltons The Partridge Family (okay, okay, sheesh!! I'll admit I only watched to see David Cassidy! ...and to listen to the music ) 21 Jump Street Smallville 7th Heaven Party of Five The Twilight Zone (original)
One thing all of these shows have in common (except the Partridge Family) is a level of philosophy inherent to the plot. All of these shows dug deep into the questions and meanings of life without being preachy.
I don't watch soapies anymore, I might catch a few minutes of "Days of our Lives" when seeing what else is on though - just to see if the whole Bo, Hope, Billie love triangle is still happening. More...
Maybe it is an old-fashioned topic after its ten years' popularity,but I wanna see how come it was so successful,and adored by so many people? Please come in and share your wonderful memories about Friends.
I enjoy poetic quotes and phrases, but some are confusing. I remember a quote some guy said on the TV show Walking Dead. I watched the particular episode again and could not help wonder what this man meant when he said...
