Thread: What TV shows are you watching?
09-04-2013, 03:29 PM #1201
I just finished devouring That Mitchell and Webb Look, as well as TM&W Situation... and I crave more British comedies. Do you good blokes have any suggestions of other shows in the same vein?

I also thought the direwolves looked really good in this Ep, much better than Greywind's appearance in S1
Yeah I really dont like Jojen, I might still be convinced by Meera, but I'm not hopeful as she was one of my favourite characters in the books and I'm not sure the actress has the right look
I really like many of the additions the show has made, or can at least see why they've done certain things, but while I liked the Margaery/Joffrey stuff, I'm not sure I like the Petyr Baelish changes.
Edit: Incidentally I was slightly disappointed with the S2 commentaries didnt go into as much detail about why they made certain changes / editions, unlike S1 where (unless I imagined it) they pretty much justified all the main changes from the book - which I found interesting to understand even if I didnt agree with
Peep Show - Mitchell and Webb are both in this although its a different kind of comedy - much closer to what you might term cringe comedy although unlike say the Office, I can actually bring myself to watch it
For some other sketch shows you could check out things like Not The Nine O'clock News, the Fast Show or the Peter Serafinowicz Show
For panel / topical shows you can't go wrong with the likes of QI, mock the week, have I got news for you, Charlie Brookers Weekly Wipe, 8 out of 10 Cats
For somewhat more story driven stuff then there's loads to choose from but Blackadder, Red Dwarf, Young Ones, Bottom and Max & Paddy's road to nowhere would get my recommendation
For somewhat lesser known shows you could check out stuff like The Detectives, Waiting for God, The Thin Blue Line, One Foot in the Grave

Hoping podcast of ice and fire get their review up soon. I look forward to seeing whether any tables are flipped: -

I still think its pretty faithful to the book its general plotting and actions is gotten fro mthe book its only its edges here and there thats changed and adding a bit more colour to some characters that were off screen but are important to some plots then and in the future. One of the things I definitly love is that how smooth they have become in knowing how much screen time to give to a character and where to go with it, and als what to use to bridge the various chaarcters. Season 1 struggled with this and did feel a little clunky(my god remember how many times they had the same speech about how Winter was a terrible thing?) but they seemed to have fixed it in season 2 and beyond.
Shame I can't actually watch the latest episode because my girlfriend isn't here.
Gotten to season 2 of Farscape, the second half of season 1 was a lot weaker on the one in done storylines, and season 2 seems to be mixed where there are some great ones and there are some where your just like what. An episode about falling down a rock with underground surfer like dudes has got to be a lowpoint I have to say.
So many cult cartoons coming out now really hard to choose between them...

Not to mention after that you have a great three-parter, followed not too long after with Won't Get Fooled Again, three episodes after of which is A Clockwork Nebari which, well, I hope you like gore. Then, because the good wasn't quite good enough, you essentially get a 4 parter to finish the season, with the main 3 parter highlighting all the best parts of Farscape and the finale of the season being incredible.
I think I need to watch some more Farscape again.

I love the multiple episodes which have John walk into a room full of bad guys (who want to torture, dissect, & kill him), dance on the table, shit in their dinner, and generally get by with a half-assed plan nobody else would use, against odds noone in their right mind would go up against. Thankfully there seems to be at a set of these episodes per season.

We. Are going. To die.
Of course with the best part being that they don't usually work. I was with some friends last week and we were talking about some sci-fi shows and what would happen if they were turned into RPGs. I commented that, when playing as Crichton, I'd want the option to always walk into a hostile discussion with [s4 finale spoiler]a nuclear bomb attached to his waist[/spoiler]. For those times when you anticipate arguments getting a bit heated.

I've been doing a Ren & Stimpy marathon. The Rubber Nipple Salesmen episode is just delightfully creepy.

Started watching The Shield, now that's a cop show I like. Corruption and flawed characters everywhere, lovely! I totally missed this one when it first came out. Never even heard of it before a couple of days ago.

[spoiler]I love that over 4 years, they'd utterly broken the man. It wasn't quite enough that in the penultimate episode they had to give him one more thing to contend with, but the brilliant twist that for once it was something he did. Not that he wasn't pressured into it, but this originally intelligent and quick-thinking individual was reduced to the same measures that those against him employed.[/spoiler]
Such an amazing show.

The pedophile episode has got to be one of the most funniest episodes i've seen in awhile and it also shows that people in Britain do not have a sense of humour.

The Cake episode is amazing. "One kiddie on this stuff cried all the water out of his body. Just imagine how his mother must have felt. What a fucking disgrace."

The first few episodes of House of Cards. Haven't seen a show that breaks the fourth wall like this in ages. The little popups that show you whats going on on a person's cellphone are pretty cool too.

Marking the end of my HBO subscription by re-watching Mr. Show, which makes me laugh like an complete idiot. I love the marriage of absurdity, surreal elements (e.g Bob and David talking to themselves in the audience while on-stage) and the completely threadbare transitions between segments. Definitely my favorite sketch show.

Is the 3rd season of GoT worth watching or is it like the second season?
