I have only finished this show recently enough, but I knew as soon as I had started watching that it would be in my top 5. It follows a piemaker who can bring anything dead back to life by touching it once, and make it dead again by touching it twice. If something stays alive for more than a minute then something else will die in its place. He ends up working with a private detective as well as running his pie business. It all starts when he brings back his childhood sweetheart(who is the same age as him having only died recently). Everything about the story and characters is perfect. The character relationships are second to none, Ned and Chuck's relationship is my favourite one ever.
It is about a particular police unit investigating a large drug organisation in Baltimore. There is nothing else like it, as it is actually a very good cop show. It is incredibly realistic which actually adds to the suspense and drama. The police have to argue to get warrants they need, they don't work out what is going on based on weirdly accurate guesses with no evidence, it takes ages to get a wiretap on phones they need etc. . The acting is first class, and once again the character relationships are incredibly well done. Omar is possibly one of the best characters ever made
It is definitely the best sci-fi series I have ever seen. It takes place on a firefly-class spaceship called Serenity, and is set in a world where humanity has terraformed quite a few planets. The superpowers of the world (mainly China and America) combined to form the Alliance which is now effectively a world government. Before the series begins there is a war between the Alliance who want all planets under one rule, and the Independents who think each planet should be free to choose. Naturally the Alliance win. The crew of Serenity are all amazing, particularly how they grow and go on to interact with each other. They all have intriguing secrets and pasts that are only brushed upon. Also Mal and Inara are the second best couple ever, no other show managed such brilliant sexual tension without overplaying it for ages.
It is definitely the strangest show in the entire world, well the strangest that is any good. The first episode sets up this idyllic, soporific, stifling town called Twin Peaks that is rocked by the murder of Laura Palmer. Laura was the prom queen, helped out with the meals on wheels, tutored the disabled, was well known and loved. So naturally her murder shocks the town. The pilot plays like a soap albeit with some subtly off-putting aspects that appealed to me, particularly the scene at the train car. It really picks up in episode 2 shifting the focus from town to murder and starts to become a bit more surreal, by now I was really warming to the series. The third episode was amazing, a strong episode and I really felt like I was on top of all the strangeness. Then the end of the episode was just....there is nothing else like it. Well except for that scene in The Simpsons that parodies it
Sarah & Steve
It was a very short show, maybe ten episodes long and each episode was about ten minutes. It was about a couple (Sarah and Steve obviously), filmed in a kind of documentary style. They would each record a video diary discussing the events of the last few days and each episode flicks between the two. So you would see two different interpretations of the same events back to back. It generally focused on their fights or falling outs, that kind of thing. Despite being quite humorous for the most part it actually deals with a quite an emotionally complex relationship. You really feel for these characters and how in love they are, despite them never being onscreen at the same time. I tried to show it to a few pals here, but the accents were too thick for them to understand
Game of Thrones
This show is so amazing - so amazing in fact that I don't even want to read the books. Which is a shocker because I've done that with many shows I liked(PLL being an example). I can find no faults with the show what soever. The gore the action the drama and the stories of the characters are all just so entertaining. I really can't wait for the rest of season two to be over. I really hate getting so connected to characters and seeing them killed off though. That's happened a lot with this show.
The only thing I could add to that is... LONG LIVE TYRION LANNISTER. -ahem-
I'm a huge fan of law, and I've seen a lot of criminal justice shows on television. But I can easily say that I don't think anything tops this show. I'm more of a person who loves what goes on behind the scene (going to school to be a paralegal), so seeing everything that the lawyers do to make sure that a problem DOESN'T go to court really gets me hooked. Not to mention that the writing for the show is amazing, and I love the chemistry between the characters. They all mesh so well.
To be honest, those are the only two shows I follow religiously, but a few other shows that I'm a fan of are The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural and White Collar.
P.S - I'm a big fan of the USA Network in general. Haha.
i tried watching the pilot of suits, and i found it really dull. it seemed to be trying to be a modern day version of mad men, without the interesting characters. i also thought they tried to force far too much character set up into the pilot, and too much back story for it to be of any interest. which is a shame, because i really wanted to like it.
i watched a couple of old episodes of red dwarf the other day, it reminded me of how totally amazing it was, well, before Kochansky came along... or however you spell her name
Doctor Who, probably borerline obsession with that one, went to the convention this year and I got Matt Smiths autograph I vaguely remember watching it as a kid and being terrified of the daleks, they dont really hold the same fear with me anymore, well, at all really, theyve got a bit stale, the Weeping angels are scary as shit though <_< Ecclestone will always be my favourite
Oh my god Lost!!! Id never seen it before, and the boy bought the box set and made me sit and watch the whole lot of it, we had a proper lostathon, and I had to begrudgingly admit it was absolutely amazing. Alot of people seemed to slate the ending, and until I watched it, from what id heard and thought it was, it was nothing like I imagined and thought the whole series bar a few shaky episodes in season 4 was absolutely amazing. I think the first 3 series were the best for me - though I wouldnt really say any of it was bad
Il always have a lasting love of Buffy the vampire slayer I got all the VHS boxsets then replaced them with DVD
Really enjoyed A Game of Thrones aswell, ive had to invest in the first book I enjoyed it that much
why the fuck
can they send men into space
but they cant stop hangover
bastards are wasting our time
Fairy Tales have always fascinated me, so this TV Series was definitely on the top of my list. I love how they combine all of the fairy tales and mix it up so that it still follows the same sort of path but not how it usually went in the book. It is awesome. Every episode amazes Steve and I. <3
This is just too good! It gets better every episode. Everything is just so sneaky and well thought out. I love how Emily is always five steps ahead all the time. It always leaves Steve and I sitting on the edge of our seat.
Steve and I love this too. It's good we love watching the same things. >.< It's basically just a really funny highschool show about a girl who is stuck in the middle of a love triangle. Her councillor is really wierd but funny too.
Just a funny Aussie TV Show about what it's like to be a Houso. XD I love the way it portrays them. It's so effing true!
5. True Blood
One of my favourite Vampire TV Shows. The storyline is really intriguing and very addictive.
ღSnow White: You. You found me.ღ
ღPrince Charming: Did you ever doubt I would?ღ
ღThe prettiest SnowxCharming set ever! Made by Micciღ
The Young Ones.
Clearly the greatest TV show ever made. That is because comedies are the best kind of TV shows, and The Young Ones is the best comedy. The show is about 4 university students who never go to university and it's just about the ridiculous and extremely contrived things that happen to them. In one an Atomic bomb lands in front of their fridge and one of the people keeps trying to make it explode by hitting it with a sledge hammer and then a demolition ball etc etc. Another guy uses it to blackmail the government, someone else tries to sell it, and the other guy builds a shelter consisting of a table with a bit of cloth over it right in front of the bomb.
And the jokes are amazing.
2) The Sopranos.
It's been described by its creator as a morality play, about how the main character, the head of the New Jersey Mob, Tony Soprano has the opportunity to make the right decision morally, and how he continually fails. That being said he doesn't always make the wrong decision, but he certainly doesn't become a better person over the course of the series. I really like it because at the heart of the show it's about characters, not about the Mob. So there's Carmela Soprano who is this incredibly classless mob wife, who is obsessed by conspicuous consumption, expensive Gucci bags etc, and never hesitates to tell people how much a piece of art she owns costs etc. However, at the same time she's incredibly frustrated. She just wants to do the best she can for her family, which often means staying with Tony even though he has multiple affairs, and she ends up resenting her daughter's education, even though she wanted her to be well educated. It's brilliantly written as no character is two dimensional. It's also quite funny, there are certain events that are played for laughs, like when one character kills a dog, not normally very funny, but it is in the Sopranos. There are also other moments which are funny, but less straight forward, at the end of season 2 which is funny, but what you are laughing at is also the disintegration of someone's life and their sanity.
It'll probably disappoint you if you want something like The Godfather or Goodfellas. It's far less violent and less about organised crime than those movies, but it's also much better.
3) The Wire.
It's about the drug trade and the resulting violence in Baltimore. It's also about how the system is failing everyone. The police are not equipped, and not really that interested in putting a stop to the drug trade. What's more important is that they are seen to be trying, drugs on the table is what somebody says. It's an indictment of the way American society and government has failed its people, in particular its poor. It also has some beautiful scenes. Avon and Stringer in the penthouse apartment at the end of series 3. The Bunk and Omar talking about the loss of community. It's great, but also quite depressing.
4) A Very Peculiar Practice.
It's a black surreal comedy set in a GP practice in an English University during the 80s. It's very funny, but also quite hard to describe. Anyone who does not like it is a 888888******
Seinfeld is quite easy to describe, as it's a show about nothing. It has four characters, all of whom are cunts, but also very funny. Especially George and Kramer.
5) Mad Men.
I love Mad Men. It is probably the most beautiful looking TV show ever, which is ironic, given how ugly many of the characters are. It's about an Advertising company in the early to mid 60s, and the people who are part of the company. There are no killings, though there is a slightly Spinal Tap-ish Lawnmower incident. It's a drama about people and their relationships with one another.

This is fucking impossible. Hmm I'll try to leave out WWE shows and kids show, since some would consider that unfair.
House has always been a bit of a secret show I've liked very much. Not many people know that I like it. I've been watching it for at least 6 years now. There's just something about it I really like. It's kept me hooked all these years.
This show is pretty damn funny. I like to watch it sometimes. I originally only watched it to see John Cena on the episode he did but after that, I stuck around.
Okay, I'm gonna break my own rules right now.
3) Zoey 101
This show was completely awesome. It's definitely a contender for my favorite show of all time. The characters were awesome and all that. Every episode was just.... Cool. This show was everything I wanted out of teenhood.
4) That's So Raven
Hehe.... Good times. I think I have like, every episode of this show ever on VHS. That's how awesome this show was. It lasted a pretty long time too. Another hilarious show.
5) Drake & Josh
Another awesome one. I'm glad they still show re runs of this show. It was just too awesome. The Christmas movie/TV special is one of my favorite movies ever.
I am a wrestling fan.
I am proud to say that.
I don't care what anybody thinks of me because of that.
