RE: OT: Best show nobody is watching, pimp away
I'm a bit of a tv slut. I'll watch anything for three episodes. Some of my not semwell known favs.

Horseman - I can't even begin to explain it. It's so funny, so creative, the wordplay, the sight gags and then it get's reaper than any cartoon should. I don't want to finish season four because I won't see any new ones for a year.

IZomie - fantastic. From the people who brought you Veronica Mars

Veronica Mars - made Kristen Bell a star. The first season is as good a tv show as anything I've ever seen.

Orphan Black and IRobot are kind,of trippy fun shows.

If we are saying some well known shows.

I love AMC's "Turn". About spy networks in the revolutionary war.

BBC America's "The Last Kingdom" is also a highly underrated show in my opinion.

"Vikings" is also another solid one.

And keeping with a semi viking or European knight theme. “The Bastard Executioner” comes from “Sons of Anarchy” creator Kurt Sutter

Friday nights are tough for any shows lots of outside options, network execs in their infinite wisdom canceled two good shows.

Bojack is in a class of its own really. The universe that it creates -- "Hollywoo" just brilliant. JD Salinger is a major character, what?!

Honestly I didn't think last season was very good, but this one made up for it.

Whatever you do, don't Google "Alf's Autopsy". It's one of the creepiest damned things on the Internet. And that includes the conference realignment board.

To my mind The Americans is one of the top, if not the top drama/suspense series on TV today. Enjoy it immensely.

I just binge watched the first 2 seasons of The Strain on Netflix. Not sure if it’s been listed as I haven’t read this thread yet.

I tried to get into that one because very much in my wheelhouse but a lot of syfy shows have great premises but idk maybe i expect a little too much? Like that miniseries about the people in that deepspace project a couple years ago...

It took me three episodes to get into it because it's so complex, but I'm glad I did. There's also a lot of hidden science in it like scenes showing the coriolis effect as they have experts on hand to try to make it look as plausible as possible. I've only watched season one so far side Amazon Prime doesn't have the second yet, but it looks to be right up there with the Battlestar Galactica reboot.

Firefly is rather popular though with a cult following.

For this scene alone:

I have no idea if nobody is watching this but I never knew it existed until Monday.

Ozark on netflix. The series has a Breaking Bad feel to it. One season so far and I am half way through that first season. It is very interesting. Some a lot of points to build the plot from. Best thing I have seen in a while.





Hope you enjoy!

There aren't enough lifetimes to watch all the "Netflix Originals" and most of them are crap. But I'll check that one out. Currently watching "The Mist" as it's one of my favorite Stephen King stories from when I was a kid and I enjoyed the movie even if it was kind of cheesy. Seems to be pretty good so far as a longer adaptation that is quite a bit different than the story.

The better Originals seem to be the shows that were network shows that got dropped and then subsequent seasons were produced by Netflix, like Longmire and The Killing. And I like their Marvel stuff.

I saw they cancelled House of Cards the other day. That was one of their bread and butter shows. Got a lot of subscribers. Curious to see if that affects their viewership more than keeping the show but having Kevin Spacey still there as an accused pedophile. I'm all for anything that exposes the Hollywood hypocrites, anyway. Telling us how we should live from their podiums while they do whatever they want behind close doors. Buh-bye

Ozarks is one of my shows that I watch. Very well done. Highly recommend.

Also, while not a show, WWII in Colour is a great documentary on Netflix if you are in to that kind of stuff.

Mindhunter is fantastic IMO. It's produced/directed by David Fincher of Se7en(and others) fame. I would highly recommend it. I just finished watching it and can't wait for season 2

Indeed. And Ozark isn't great. It's okay. We stopped watching about 9 episodes in.

The Bridge is fantastic. One of the most underrated shows ever. Two seasons and done on FX.
