I'm so susceptible to getting addicted to anything, it's ridiculous. I've already finished Justified 1st series (seen all the episodes in just a few days) and I'm already starting the 2nd series now.
For another good straight through watch on Netflix, I recommend Friday Night Lights. Great ensemble cast. I also want to start watching Breaking Bad, but I'm scared of becoming addicted to ANOTHER show
Started watching Friday Night Lights as well, I'm on the 6th episode of the 1st series. It's almost too dramatic for me, but the acting is really good, and the football background makes it very enjoyable.
downloading Justified right now.Looks good in the promo,need a new show to get addicted to
Good idea for a thread, I've always wanted to talk about shows without having to start a separate thread. I don't really watch TV that much but I do watch a lot of boxsets and shows on the computer.Totally agree with you on The Walking Dead, Diego. The first season was great and the pilot was one of the best things I have ever seen, but it is going drastically downhill. Watching it reminds me an awful lot of Lost, especially the survival and philosophical aspects it tries to incorporate. Lost did it a million times better though with characters you cared about. Couldn't give a sh*t about any of them on The Walking Dead. The zombies are the only reason I keep watching, and even they've taken a backseat cos they don't eat anybody! And how come mindless, brain dead zombies have the wit to always sneak up and ambush the survivors? They spend most of their time arguing over stupid things and making stupid decisions that its cringeworthy to watch.I'm watching about 10 different shows at the same time currently so it gets fairly confusing. Boardwalk Empire season two is fantastic at the minute, much better than season one which was also great.The Walking Dead season two is very mediocre so far IMO.Dexter season six is still pretty good. A bit of a repetitive formula but I love itAmerican Horror Story season one is really impressive. Didn't think I would like it as it seemed a mish mash of every horror cliche under the sun. But its creepy, dark and actually has a decent storyline coming along.Supernatural season seven is okay. Probably should have ended after five amazing seasons. But the occasional brilliant episode does it make it worth ploughing through the ordinary ones.The Vampire Diaries season three - people may laugh at this one but this show is so entertaining. At this moment in time, definitely better than Supernatural. And better than True Blood!In boxsets I am on Fringe season two, as well as Justified season two and Breaking Bad season three.The best of all though is Six Feet Under. I'm only on the third season but that show is incredible. The characters are the most believable I have ever seen and its so emotional that you can relate to all of them, even the ones you hate. A show about a dysfunctional family of funeral directors shouldn't appeal to me but it is one of the best I have ever seen.Of course there are others like Deadwood, The Wire, Carnivale, Spartacus, Firefly, Rome that everybody should watch. And btw Twin Peaks is fantastic. Special Agent Dale Cooper being one of the best characters ever created. A great mix of tension and dark atmosphere with wacky humour. Couldn't recommend it enough...couldn't recommend any of the shows I have mentioned enough. I do have a life outside of TV shows though...there's quite a lot I haven't even mentioned haha.Sh*t I nearly forgot to mention Game of Thrones. As a big fan of the books and having had the privilege of meeting some of the cast, crew and the author of the books, I may be a little biased - but this show is currently the best on TV at the minute, barring none.Here's an insight into season two for anyone interested:Game of Thrones: Season 2 In Production
Keep going with FNL, Diego. It gets better and better. They do a fantastic job developing characters. By the time it ended, I was so emotionally attached to Coach Taylor that I checked in to couple's therapy by myself
I really liked the original Friday Night Lights movie with Billy Bob Thornton. I never really started on the series because the promos made it look like one of those teen dramas.
I've been meaning to watch It's Always Sunny. If you're in to that, I hope you watched Arrested Development. That show was absolutely brilliant.
Yes! Shame the show only lasted 3 seasons as it was one of the best show on TV during 03-05, there is always talk about a movie coming out but nothing been finalized yet.
I just started watching the new Ricky Gervais show Lifes Too Short. I already liked Gervais I like all his stuff..Radio, Podcasts, Extra's.This new show is hilarious. I actually cried I was laughing so hard.
I'm not sure if you have seen it yet but the third episode where Warren goes to view an apartment is the funniest yet.Brilliant show.
If you're a boxing fan Steve it isn't really what you want to see, it was the last thing Nigel Benn wanted to witness.Didn't realise it was that long ago - 16 years is a long time not least of all for the lad who was injured. Often wonder how he's geeting on had heard that he was improving but that was some years ago.
I read your post before you edited it and thought that you thought you were in the song thread with the Telly Savalas song 'IF' !
