    Me and my girl were talking about how I have the kiss of death when it comes to T.V. shows. If I watch it, it's likely to get axed no matter how good it is. She's not into sci-fi but she did enjoy watching Jericho with me. Axed. I thought I was going to be able to get her into SGU but ah... Too late. Axed. Flash Forward was great and I had her on that from day one because it was sort of like a cop drama in some ways. Guess what? Axed. Ah damn it...
    flash forward was ill. but, it started to get fucked up after season one. i mean it ws when it started but...

    Wait, there was a season two? Last I seen, Mark Benford was about to jump out of a tower because the place was about to blow. Then the place blew and they cancelled the series. Like what the hell? They could have at least released an webisode where he pops up and says, "I'm cool" or something...

    i'm pretty sure their was a season two. but, i just checked and apparently not although I swear I was watching an episode and they said it was season two.

    maybe it went away for a while and then came back. like some of those series do.

    or maybe i just hadn't seen an episode since 09 and then watched one in 10 and asumed it was season two.

    Alright, I've only got time for one series at a time so I'm hoping you guys can help me out. I downloaded episodes 1 and 2 of American Horror Story after I read what you guys were talking about. The beginning of episode 1 had me like "Ok, this might be watchable", but then most of the episode was a little lame to up until the last bit. Does ep. 2 get a lot better? If not I plan on going back to SOA.

    I've been trying to watch Sons for over a year and I finally got the chance to download season 2 a few weeks back. At least I know I'm getting a great show in SOA!

    every episode of American Horror Story delves more into the history of the house and the people who lived there.. plus whatever is happening with the family in the present... and slowly giving the impression that they're putting the pieces to the puzzle together.

    i'm all-in on American Horror Story.. i love it... but if you didnt like the first episode, im not sure you'll like the rest

    I'm halfway through season 2 of Sons... amazing season, except for Henry Rollins.... love the dude, but man is he a horrible actor..

    Season 2 is a lot better than season one. It would be a good choice.

    True but he makes it easy for you to hate him in the show so even though he's rough around the edges he accomplishes something at least.

    sadly, the best performance on the show is the most under-utilized character... Juice

    Juice is your favorite? You'll be happy to know that he gets his own storyline in season 4.

    Hey, did you know that Happy is a real deal Hell's Angel? He offers up input for the show too.

    oh for sure man... he's the most multifaceted character on the show... everyone else is sort of one dimensional... not nescessarily in a bad way... but like, Jax or Clay arent really going to surprise you with their personality... you know what their deal is, you know where its going.. possibly because its pretty much hamlet, so their characters are pre-defined

    Yeah, I keep getting the feeling that by the end of the series Jax will be the show's tragic hero. You'll understand him a lot more by season 4. They open him up very, very slowly.

    I really like both these shows. I'm the only one I know who watches Community. I think it is brilliant. The last episode I watched with the 6 parallel story-lines had me peeing myself. Excellent show.

    I just finished watching Season 3 of Breaking Bad. Very good stuff. Can't wait until next season.

    I haven't watched game of thrones or archer yet. I'll put them on my list.

    I'm trying to get into Camelot but I'm finding it a bit hard. I'm going to give it a few more weeks. Is game of thrones similar at all to Camelot?
    well, what are you waiting for season 4 just ended like a week before TWD started up again.

    so much has happened in season 1 of spartacus I question what they will have left for the season finale never mind season 2.

    seems more like a miniseries to me because I think they've set the bar too high that it will come crashing down.

    man, just finished the first season of spartacus. That was fuckin ridiculous. So fuckin awesome.

    It was like the first episode was like eh then it really got good then i think the 6th episode was a drag then the next couple were awesome episode 10 or 11 was like meh and then it had a very awesome and strong finish.

    Some of the details that they fill in there were a bit much at somepoints. I mean I love titties, but sometimes it was a bit much, there was way too much of naked cocks in one episode.
    It almost got to a point where I burst into laughter everytime there was nudity, man or woman.

    Here we've been naming a bunch of great series, while forgetting about all the other types of genres or brands there are:

    Swamp People-History Channel-Might just be the best "reality" series out there. It follows several groups of Aligator fisherman in Louisana.
    http://www.history.com/shows/swamp-people

    Billy The Exterminator-A&E-Follows a family run exterminator business, specifically a groovy fella named Billy, based out of Louisana.
    http://www.aetv.com/billy-the-exterminator/

    Dirty Jobs-Discovery Channel-I'd be shocked if someone has never watched this show. Follows a guy named Mike Rowe(Ford and Lee Jeans Commercials) who sets out across America to discover how dirty some jobs really are.
    http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/dirty-jobs/

    Hillbilly Handfishin'-Animal Planet-Collects a group of every day people and takes them down to Oklahoma. Where they are taught how to "noodle", which in lamens terms is catching Catfish using nothing but hand or foot.
    http://animal.discovery.com/tv/hillbilly-handfishin/

    River Monsters-Discovery-Follows veteran fisherman Jeremy Wade as he travels across the world to it's deppest,darkest rivers to find the most grueling beasts the world's rivers have to offer.
    http://animal.discovery.com/tv/river-monsters/

    Tosh.O-Comedy Network-Watch host/comedian Daniel Tosh as he scours the net for the funniest and sometimes grossest videos that have ever been posted.

    i dont have cable.. so think about all the time that's spent watching filler TV... game shows, seinfeld reruns, court tv, the news.... replace it with shows you actually do want to watch... plus, you can just throw them onto your smartphone... i have an hour commute to work.. i can usually kill two hour long network shows... or three 30min shows... just on my way to work

    and then every once in awhile i find a show i really dig... and the world is dead to me for a few days, the cellphone goes untouched for awhile (except to jump onto imdb)..

    I don't watch much reality T.V. but I do record "Dual Survival" with Cody Lundin. I read one of Cody's books and then one late night I'm scanning the guide and see this show on Discovery or National Geographic with him in it. It was a no brainer for me. It's something like Survivorman.

    All valid explanations. Duly noted... Speaking of filler TV, I'm hooked on TMZ and I don't know why. I really don't give a shit about anyone they talk about.

    One show I really got into was Two and a Half Men, and then old Charlie boy went off the rails! Or wait... he was on rails most of the time I guess, wasn't he? I tried watching one or two episodes of the new one with Ashton Kutcher but it's god awful. They should just cancel it now.

    Anyone watch Curb? That show has been great since Leon came to it, haven't caught any of the new season though.

    Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations .... how could i forget about my absolute favourite show on TV

    On the surface, it's just a show about a dude going around the world eating and getting drunk (and stoned from time to time... but we're not supposed to notice that)... but it's so much more... it's an exploration of the global cultural divide...
