    TV Series Recommendation

    Just interested in what series you are following or what you've finished watching and what you think is worth the time.
    I know there is a lot of good stuff out there, so maybe we just share our absolute favorites. Feel free to add.

    ---

    I just finished TRUE DETECTIVE. And it was awesome!
    It's a dark-noir crime HBO drama. First Season consist of 8 Episodes with a finished story arc.
    Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson hunting a serial killer. Story is told in multiple timelines across 17 years.
    It's dark, brilliantly witty and in some of it's dialogs almost philosophical. Watch it!

    Re: TV Series Recommendation

    Star Trek remains my all time favorite TV show really :P But I also like:
    Homeland
    Alias (but only the first couple of seasons, it took a really strange path from there on and got ... peculiar ... to say the least)
    Scrubs
    Community (same with alias, only first couple seasons)

    I'm quite into cartoons too and can recommend: Star Wars the Clone Wars, Futurama

    Re: TV Series Recommendation

    A few more I can heartly recommend, that were not yet mentioned.

    Science-Fiction: Firefly, Babylon 5, Continuum

    Crime: True Detective, Sherlock, Breaking Bad, Luther

    Comedy: The Big Bang Theory, Doctor Who

    Anime/Cartoons: Cowboy Bebop, The Pinguins of Madagascar

    History: Rome

    Fantasy: Pushing Daisies


    Also i of course love Star Trek, Spongebob, Futurama ...
    ... and watching (as retro does) elementary and almost human. Although I believe the latter are entertaining, but not exceptional.
    And I just met Jack Bauer for the first time. Watched the first 13 Episodes of season 1. Frenzy. But not sure, if it will mesmerize me over the long run. Got me exhausted somehow - can't explain.

    Retro, btw, is Fargo good? I did not give it a go yet.

    Yeah, really dark humour, not fast paced but keeps you interested as to what will happen next. I really like it.

    There's also a crime drama set in the Shetland Isles called....wait for it....Shetland. I find it a bit disturbing, psychologically.

    Re: TV Series Recommendation

    I don't really watch that much TV as there rarely seems to be time for it but Battlestar Galactica (First two seasons especially), Game of Thrones (only seen 1,5 seasons due to time constraints) and the Simpsons I've liked. In addition to those I would recommend the first season of Heroes. The second season wasn't as good and I haven't seen any of the rest.

    Re: TV Series Recommendation

    Shows I've been into the last few years:

    True Detective (the best television series I've ever witnessed x10)
    Boardwalk Empire
    The Pacific
    Breaking Bad
    Dexter
    Falling Skies
    Homeland
    The Pacific
    Battlestar Galactica
    Dual Survival (although that will probably end with a recent cast change)

    I use file sharing to grab all the above, and otherwise, don't have tele.

    Small update on my TV schedule

    24 lost me after season 2 ... too sterotypical and a bit over the top and not in a good way (takes itself too serious imo).

    Watched the BBC drama The Musketeers in the meanwhile: entertaining, but not outstanding. I allways was into swashbuckler (hope it's the right word) films. Just love the genre as a whole, so I am looking forward for season 2.

    Game of thrones of course. Just stunning. Can't wait for 2015.

    Last week I started with Arrested Development - ... oh the laughter.
    Will definitly get one of my top 5 comedy shows, if it keeps that level hilariousity (does this word even exist?).
