Television General Discussion

If a thread like this exists already please point me to it - a forum search yielded nothing.

Thread is mainly to discuss shows that probably aren't popular enough to have their own thread - at least right now.

Ground Rules
  • Keep spoilers to a minimum - try to be considerate, this is general discussion. No spoilers for future episodes though.
  • If a show already has it's own thread, talk about it there (Dexter, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, etc)
  • If a show is taking up too much of the thread, create a thread just for that show.

    So anybody plan on catching the Criminal Minds or Revenge premieres?

    No, but then again I hate most dramatic television.

    About all I have been doing is catching up on Haven and Supernatural, finally caved in and bought the first two seasons and I enjoy it immensely.

    Overall I mainly watch sci-fi ( <3 Fringe), but I'll watch dramas as long as they have something unique about them. I like Criminal Minds, NCIS, and SVU - but the guiltiest pleasure of all is Leverage. Not the best actors, not the best writing and the plots can jump the shark more often than not - but the characters just work. It's one of those rare shows where the plot can be the last thing on your mind, you just want to watch the characters interact with each other.

    I really liked Supernatural for a while, but it got to the point where it went a little far for me (I got deeper into religion around the time, Muslim btw) and stopped watching - I think around S4 or S5. Really well written though and from what I remember the acting just got better every season.

    Haven't tried Haven, though I've been tempted since Edge has been making guest appearances. I remember hoping SyFy would pick up Heroes. Tried to watch Alphas but didn't get through the first episode due to company. Perhaps I'll try again at some point.

    Let me also add that I was pleasantly surprised by Falling Skies. That's a friggin' good show.

    Season seven of Supernatural I think premiered a few weeks ago. Still a fantastic show from what I hear, trying to quickly catch up.

    @CTG: Haven is great. It's like CSI meets Twin Peaks if that helps at all. A little more light hearted and focused on character development but it's good. Hope it survives after Season 2.

    Have only seen a couple episodes of BBT and enjoyed them - I just can't get into sitcoms anymore for some reason. I think it'll end up being one of those shows that I'll randomly binge on here and there while I work.

    I randomly watched the second half of a PR episode a few weeks ago when I stumbled on it and caught a whiff of nostalgia. I don't think I could do that again. It was mind-numbing.

    Don't know if you've seen the promos yet, but
    Prentiss coming back so soon is kinda surprising. I figured they'd wait a few episodes. Guess this means they'll be tying up that arc in the first or second episode.

    I'm hyped up for a lot of shows coming up. NCIS season premiere was pretty good, as well as NCIS LA. Revenge looks like it might be interesting...going to watch the premiere tonight. Dexter, House and Criminal Minds I'm definitely not going to miss.

    One show I really liked was Lie to Me, what happened with it?

    I really enjoyed Revenge last night. I'm hoping they really go through with everything and not have her have some grand change of heart by the end of the season/series.

    Criminal Minds was of course - awesome.
  • FOBioFOBio Whaddup!? Joined: Posts: 4,342 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    I watch a lot of TV for a guy who should be studying. A lot of shows I like aren't the best ones on TV. Simple plots, not great acting, etc. But I like them for one reason or the other.

    Psych - no idea when it starts up again.
    Leverage - can't watch because no TV, but I do like.
    Dexter - obvious.
    Office - falling off, but it should end soon.
    Chuck - ending this season coming up.
    Eureka - the plot (especially this last season) is really bizarre. I don't know where they're taking this series. But for some reason, I can't stop watching.
    How I Met Your Mother - some people say the jokes get repetitive, but I still enjoy it. Rather that than bitching about a show changing so much.
    Enterprise - ended awhile ago, but never got around to watching until now.
    Castle - is this show gaining in popularity? No idea.
    Why bring logic to a discussion?

    I'm actually looking forward to this show............it's the only new show on NBC I'm looking forward to.
    Probably on any channel.
    Police detective Michael Britten (Jason Isaacs) regains consciousness following a car accident involving his wife Hannah (Laura Allen) and his son Rex (Dylan Minnette). Michael moves back and forth between two realities: in one, Rex survived while Hannah is dead; in the other, Hannah survived but Rex did not. Trying to keep both his loved ones alive, Michael starts living a "double life," moving back and forth between the two realities, dealing with different personal conflicts and police partners. He also starts noticing strange links between the two realities.

    And again.............BD Wong plays a shrink.

    Then again............there is Fox's New Girl cause I have this thing about Zooey.

    I like Zooey, but this show could ruin her for me. She's too over the top, just like everything else about the show. It feels like a multi-camera comedy shot in the single camera format...you almost expect a laugh track...

    edit: What shows do you guys watch on DVD? Do you enjoy commentary tracks and deleted scenes? I'm a huge TV on DVD fan. Ever since Arrested Development, I like getting good comedies on DVD.

    Jesus Christ how do you keep up with all that?

    I can't even keep up with like 3-4 shows. I usually catch everything later on demand, but even that sometimes I say fuck it. Just wait until the season is completed and knock it out on a free day.
    On the third day of our expedition we came across a large rubber plant, but unfortunately we cannot cut it down. For as we know, money can't buy knives. I went into a store one time and I said, "Here's a hundred thousand dollars, can I buy a knife?" And he said, "no money can't buy knives."

    I will watch the commentary on anything. Movies, TV shows, Music, I don't care, I love hearing about all that kinda shit. I don't own many shows on DVD yet tho. Just Big Bang Theory and Life and the BBT DVDs are rather devoid...Just some short featurettes an shit. Kinda disappointing. Life has commentary stuff on em but I haven't gotten to watch them yet. Will at some point soon tho.

    New episode of Castle was better then the Premier. I was happy.

    Parks and Office have great extras. The way single camera comedies are shot work well with DVD sales because there is always tons of material they had to cut for time, so the deleted scenes are great.

    Caught the two hour prem of Terra Nova. There's an intriguing implication on what Terra Nova "really" is between some characters dialougues and set pieces. I've got my fingers crossed in hoping it gets really strange.
