What to watch?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
We haven't had cable since 1998 or so (still don't have it). When we want to watch something we get the dvd.

Recently we watched Firefly (awesome,awesome, awesome!), Freaks and Geeks (awesome) and Undeclared (ok).

Dh is watching Farscape, but I can't get into it. He also watched BSG, so don't suggest that.

We like comedies and scifi.

Anything really good out there? I was never sad about ditching cable because there was just so much junk on tv anyway but it seems we missed a couple of great shows.

Right now I am watching the first Season of Big Bang Theory and I am loving it.

What about "Lost"?

I really enjoyed Weeds-it's a Showtime series.

to both Dh and I also love How I Met Your Mother. It's not a science fiction show, but it is really funny.

Yeah, I don't like Lost.

I'm going to try Big Bang Theory, also trying to get my hands on Blackpool (BBC).

I love How I Met Your Mother. It's still funny!

I'm assuming if you've done Firefly, that you've done Buffy and Angel
Dr Who
Torchwood
Carnivale (its only two season)
Dead Like Me (only two seasons)

Oh, I almost forgot! Have you guys tried Heroes? The first season was excellent, then the quality dropped off a bit, but season 4 was really good, so it's worth sticking with.

Mad Men.
Gilmore Girls

Oooh, you guys have mentioned some of my favorites. So I'll "second" Gilmore Girls, Weeds, How I Met Your Mother, and Big Bang Theory.

I'll add a vote for The Office, as well.

how about Fringe? The 1st season started a little slow but is awesome by the end and we have really enjoyed the 2nd season!

Big Love is great.

Dexter (a little gory)

I just added Rome to the queu.

Weeds.

Californication (David Duchoveny is HOT!)

Bullsh!t by Penn & Teller

I've always wanted to watch Nip/Tuck.

Keep trying with Farscape. Dh tried to get me too watch it for a few years. It wasn't until we were without cable for a couple of months until I finally did; I started to follow (not having to ask questions ever other minute) and like it in the second season.

The relationship between Aeryn and Crichton gets intense! One day I'll get around to watching Babylon 5.

Also, Dr. Who and Torchwood. I would watch the Dr. through the "Martha" season before starting Torchwood as the latter is a spin-off. Also, Torchwood is a lot darker and more "adult."

I loved "Dead Like Me"; there is a follow-up TV-movie for this show.

Haven't done Buffy or Angel, not really into the vampire thing. I'm done with Dr. Who now that Tennant is gone... We watched some earlier episodes of Torchwood and didn't like. We did like the last mini series they did "Children of Earth" I think it was called. I'll have to look up the last two.

I've heard the same thing but haven't checked it out yet.

I may try these (Mad Men being the likelier one) but dramas just don't do it for me.

HIMYM we are already watching and I'm working on getting Big Bang Theory.

I can't do it. The original office was brilliant and can't bring myself to watch the Americanized version.

Fringe sounds good, but IMDB says it's horror? Don't know if I could handle that.

I've seen couple of Bullsh!t episodes on youtube. Love them. Used to be a big X Files Fan so might have to check out Californication. Can't do gory.

Thanks for all the replies. I'm going to make a list!

I wouldn't call Fringe horror, more sci-fi than anything... though I haven't seen the whole first season, and have yet to see any of the second season.

I've been trying to get into FlashForward, but haven't been able to commit. I watched the first episode and liked it, I just need to sit aside some time to watch the rest. I guess I'll have time in nine weeks when LOST ends

Gilmore Girls is a drama, I guess, but it's such a funny and witty drama that I think it fits in a category of its own!

Modern Family is a really funny comedy! I don't watch too much tv, but that's my favorite show.
post #19 of 22
Fringe is more X-Files-ish with a lot of mad scientist mixed in.

I don't think I would call it "horror"

Dh and I watch it.

I probably found a lot of X-Files scarier but parasites freak me out

It has a lot of dark humor

I second Modern Family! Cougar Town has it moments too.
