A few disclaimers:
This is a general thread for discussing various TV shows on the fly. Stuff you’d like to see, dislike, recommend, whatever.
If a word or two is said about movies, I won’t mind. It’s not a dictatorship unless I become a leader.
Use “spoiler” or “hide details” tags if you’re discussing any story lines and events in the TV shows. Also it would be helpful to note which TV shows the spoilers mention so as people not click and get a nasty surprise.
Some of the longer running TV shows I watch are NCIS, which has consistently been on an exactly same quality level forever. I know there's more than a few "wtf is this shit" in the show, but it has aged quite well and I've enjoyed watching it since season 3 or 4 onward. The other long running show I'm watching is Family guy. And yes. I agree it stopped being hilarious after season 6 or so, but I still watch it for continuity sake. Why McFarlane doesn't just end it and make proper time for Orville, I have no idea. Haven't seen it yet, but I heard it's quite funny.
Besides that I stopped watching a bunch of shows because I tend to get obsessed and lose precious time. I have since switched to mini series or “few seasons few episodes” type of content. My favorite show by far is Seinfeld, because it’s simple, relatable and funny.
So here’s a list of TV shows I watched that have really impressed me in recent times:
- The Boys
- Chernobyl - Also has a short podcast discussing series vs. reality (fantastic insights by the writer/producer/director of the show)
- Jack Ryan - Tom Clancy
- Man in the High Castle - Final season about to be released on Nov 15th
- Taboo - Spectacular if a bit weird with Tom Hardy
- Carnival Row - About ferries and men and coexisting. A bit of a romance flick but has plenty of gore and action.
Let me know if this topic is obsolete, since we discuss so many things in the Freeland.
