    Television shows you enjoy(ed)

    Post  Tezcatlipoca on Tue Oct 04, 2011 8:52 am

    I've never been a big TV guy but there are certain series I really liked. Specifically Seinfeld, which is to my taste the only sitcom that was actually, you know...funny. I wanted to like Curb Your Enthusiasm but only actually got through like 15 minutes of the one episode I checked out. That was in 2001 or so, so it's possible it got better over time.

    At a friend's suggestion, I downloaded a torrent of Dirty Sexy Money a while back. Season 1 was really good. Season 2 was awful; completely soap operatic. It got canceled after the season ended on a cliffhanger too which is always so lame. bleh:

    How about y'all? Many people have told me to check out The Wire, and that is the best show ever. Which actually kind of ruins it for me since now there is no way it could ever live up to my expectations. Sad:

    I was an Arrested Development fan, and I hear it's coming back in a year or so for a final season and a movie. I also loved Mr. Show. Apparently shows with David Cross float my boat.

    Cartoons-- Rocko's Modern Life, Ren & Stimpy, and Adult Swim stuff like Aqua Teen and Sealab 2021.

    I used to watch Curb Your Enthusiasm, but then I moved and didn't get the channel it was on. Now it's on every damn channel. I haven't caught up, but it was fairly amusing. Not nearly as awesome as Seinfeld.

    Currently, I watch Castle, The Daily Show on occasion, Conan and Craig Ferguson once in a while, and Project Runway. I'm really bad at watching TV. I'm not a person who says, "My shows are on tonight."

    I saw 2 episodes of Modern Family and it was pretty fucking hilarious. I'm going to probably rent that and start from the beginning.

    Flibfuck doesn't like The Wire. I think this is because he lived in or around Baltimore for a good long while and doesn't feel it's representative as everyone says it is. I dunno. All my friends liked it. I downloaded it and saved it to my external hard drive. I watched one episode before it crashed.
