    Lightbulb General TV Discussion

    A discussion thread for all-things Television.

    Whether it be Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Sons of Anarchy, or My Little Pony (seriously ).

    So Breaking Bad won loads of Emmys this week. I watched BB from pilot to finale expecting it to get better, but it never did. Can't see why it's so popular.

    Re: General TV Discussion

    Im anti drugs and was hesitant about watching it. I was expecting some very depressing and bleak thing all the way through (as in the place where the parents and the 'cash machine' are). Im glad it wasn't. I thought it was extremely well written and very entertaining with some very dramatic scenes and darker stuff mixed with comedic moments. A lot of the characters were likeable even though they had flaws and I really enjoyed it.

    Im looking forward to the new Walking Dead and GoT when they start again. Gotham is also on my Radar

    Re: General TV Discussion

    With BB I watched the pilot and just couldn't get into it, dunno why tbh.
    I had watched the first couple of episodes of 'The Following' but starting from the beginning again with my other half and forgot how good that show is and it has some good jump scares, specially in the first episode have never seen my fiancé jump so high. I'm also looking forward to 'Gotham' when that comes out.
    Anyone else watch 'Sleepy Hollow'?

    I'm vaguely interested in Gotham but am very wary.

    Currently catching up with GOT (on Season 2 now) I can see why everyone likes it. Also catching up with Musketeers (BBC series) has some great production values.

    Finally i'm watching Bojack Horseman on Netflix, absolutely great series, very quirky and amusing.

    Donal Logue is what interests me in Gotham. But when it comes to comic-book TV this year, can't wait for Constantine and Arrow season 3.

    Watching Guillermo Del Toro's The Strain now, it's excellent. Bringing back monstrous vamps to our screens.

    Chomping my way through Burn Notice on Netflix currently (midway through season 3) and liking it very much.

    Also enjoying Copper, trying to like The Walking Dead (I think I may be over grim, bleak post-apocalyptics, however), and just finished the very short-running The Chicago Code.

    Re: General TV Discussion

    The Swedish election is coming up, so my limited TV time goes to that stuff.

    Otherwise there's absolutely nothing of worth on TV, except Seinfeld reruns.

    I used to love Frasier when it was on TV. Are there any shiws that are similar around now?

    I'm re-watching The Shield again. 3rd run-through. Now that's a quality piece of TV...

    Everyone knows that The Wire is the greatest TV show ever put to film.

    I could only manage season one of The Walking Dead. After that it was just, meh.

    I've started watching Fringe. When it was on originally I only watched through season 4. Catching a lot that I missed or had forgotten from the first time through.

    Fringe is a great series, my mate bears a resemblance to Walter which is kind of funny because he introduced me to the series

    Re: General TV Discussion

    Just finished season 2 of Defiance. It's not phenomenal, but it's entertaining and has quite a lot of interesting social commentary regarding relationships in a new world (a prominent politician has two husbands and same-sex relationships are old news).

    Liking the Strain as well. Finished Perception season whatever. Like it.

    Watched most of Masters of Sex. Forgot about it. It's interesting but over dramatised.

    Legend of Korra season 3. Downer ending. Always loved the Avatar setting though.

    Teen Wolf - Watched the first two seasons a while ago and wasn't sure. Season 3 was good and am enjoying season 4. It's similar to Buffy with a bit more teen drama (although Buffy had it's fair share) but follows quite a few story lines at once rather than Buffy's fairly standalone monster of the week. It's also quite violent.

    It hasn't aired over here yet but I was disappointed somewhat to find out it's vampires, I thought it was some kind of killer virus (hence the name) I'll give it a watch when it's on though.

    Just be prepared for a very Blade-esque aesthetic. Very comic-bookish and gothic.

    Oh yes, and Corey Stoll wears a wig for reasons unknown to all except stupid studio execs...

    Never got into Frasier myself really. Maybe I should. It's said to be good but I find sitting through prolonged sitcoms to be depressing, no matter how good they are. Well, except for Seinfeld. That I'll watch any day.

    A few months ago I found out that a friend of mine is able to quote Friends at pretty much any situation which I find rather impressive. So I decided to watch Friends but for some reason all it did was make me want to watch Mad About You. Watched two seasons of that and I'm not sure if I'm man enough to go on. It's cute though and rather clever with the jokes.

    Frasier is hilarious, I found it to be extremely well written and just a joy to watch
