Favorite TV Show(s) - Page 39

post #685 of 1134
I saw the whole uk series! It was good for about 4 - 5 seasons, it was just something fresh & original, a bit dark and daring yet always with a comedic touch throughout, after the 5th series the comedy fell away and it started to lose it's appeal and viewers, did run for 11 seasons though, so must have kept a large following!

So this makes seasons 1,2, and 4 as the three good seasons in the series IMO. I was nervous they were spiraling downhill after season 3, which seemed kind of like a rehash of the previous two seasons, but they won me back with S4... and you know, looking back on three now after having seen four, I can actually appreciate it a bit more.

I really don't know too many people who watch this show. The subject matter is pretty crazy sometimes, but overall, I've enjoyed it a lot. 

PS- Seen a bit of the original UK series... I definitely like this more. Same people who made the original, so it's cool to see them do the story with money this time (the original is pretty budget). 

Definately one of my favorite shows the finale was awesome an i loved how they through that surprise at the end cant wait for next season

Nonetheless, Prison Break S1-2 were very well thought out and very intriguing to say the least. Certainly worth a watch if you can stomach the occaisional networky-like blunder.

I know this is an old post, but I've been watching Prison Break on Netflix, and I think @tuffluck nailed it. Really cool premise for a show, but some of the parts are barely watchable as a network show. They try very hard to build suspense going into every commercial break, yada-yada the important parts, and beg you to suspend disbelief. Characters are great though, despicable as they may be.

My wife has been slowly making her way through the first season of LOST, and nearly a month later she's down to the last two episodes of season one.

I can't wait to see/hear her reaction to what awaits Arnzt.

It's been pretty entertaining watching her jump at least once during most episodes.  She scares pretty easy.

Mad Men just started up again tonight. I was lucky enough to get the privilege of covering it for the website I work for. 

 

Anyone else watch the premiere tonight?

Weddings in the Game Of Thrones world totally suck!

I don't know, I was kind of pleased at how that episode of GOT played out. That guy was a royal dickhead.

Gonna give "Fargo" a shot tonight. Looks real interesting and I like Billy Bob.

Honestly, one of my all time favorites - the only problem was that they had to finish due to being cancelled so there is a 2 hour movie (that really sucked) that should have been played before the last 10 minutes of the finale.

 

The first couple of seasons, they really caught me off guard - the wife gets a little pissed off when it becomes my go to bed show again since she does not believe in watching shows more than once.

Good show!

 

 

Vikings is ridiculous good.     Last episode when Ragnar finally took care of Yar Borg was epic ... he took it like a man - gotta give him that.   INtroduction of the new Earl Lagatha is a nice twist - I think Ragnar still has a thing for her ...

Agree with you on all points. This show is huge in China. On par with LOST (popularity) here.

All I can say is, wow. They put a lot on the plate for a first episode. Worth sticking with it. I understand that it will be just a ten-episode series, a la True Detective.
