suggest a show for DH! - Page 2

post #21 of 37
Californication

I also suggest House! It's my favorite show.

Might also try:
West Wing
Modern Family (it's a sit-com, I guess, but no laugh-track and very well written)
Sports Night (same as above)
Arrested Development

Ok, I'm coming from WAY out there now.... but is DH what some might consider......ahem....'a nerd?'

How about Xena? Star Trek? Battlestar Galactica?

I think Burn Notice would be good. It's about a CIA agent who has been "burned" or forced out. He doesn't know why but, while he's trying to figure it out, he's working as sort of a private detective. Well, not really a private detective but, a guy who know how to get stuff done. So, he's involved in a lot of difficult situations. It's pretty action packed, good, interesting stories, great characters. I really enjoy it.

he might be.. he loves anime and video games. i bet he'd like xena.
the catch is it has to be something I'D watch too, so battlestar galactica and star trek are right out!

It did mess me up though...now if characters only talk when standing still it really bothers me.

It's in my all-time Top 10 for sure. Did you watch Sports Night, abimommy? Same thing, just set in a Sports TV channel office. But all that walking-while-talking.

Okay, this one is violent, which I usually can't handle, but the acting, writing, and directing are so excellent that I make an exception--The Wire. DH and I both love it--many critics consider it the best television series of all time, with good reason. We also both loved Six Feet Under. I'm fairly certain that both have Spanish subtitles available on the DVDs.

Northern Exposure. tons of episodes, really focused on characters and subtle, yet funny and wacky.

Parks and Recreation is cute. I watch it on Hulu.

My DH really likes 24, Fringe, Flight of the Conchords (which I totally can't get into, male humor), Lost, Heroes, ER
post #33 of 37
Castle - comedy/drama where a novelist works with the police to solve murder cases. I didn't think I'd like it but I'm hooked!

FlashForward, Lie to Me (sometimes the guy mumbles and talks too fast)

Modern Family

Those are the shows I like watching too. Otherwise DH loves Numb3rs, the Mentalist, NCIS, Heroes, and a billion sci-fi shows.

I think you can check most of them out online to see if you like them.

These may have been mentioned, but DH and I like to watch these shows together:

Californication
Mad Men
Breaking Bad
House
The Big Bang Theory

His favorite is Animation Domination (The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad, and The Cleveland Show) on Sunday nights.

Life Unexpected.

It's a new series so not out on dvd yet. But you can just choose subtitles on your tv.
