I haven’t written in a long time about what I’ve been watching on TV and such.
I finally saw the last several episodes of The Sopranos. I had been dreading it because I heard that it ended very noncommittally. What were all those critics talking about?! There was blood (a lot of blood), tension, permanent change, temporary change, forshadowing, and certainly a sense of completion for the writers. Heck, in the second to last episode there was a TV show playing in the background talking all about writing for television; the authors didn’t let that play in the background for so long for nothin’! I found the last episodes quite fulfilling. Thank you.
Slings and Arrows. I’ve been swept off my feet with this show. I’m about 1/2 way through the 3 season run. I’m afraid to see it end because I’m such in love with it. (And I still haven’t gotten Megan hooked on it… I want her to catch up and have us watch it together)
Dr Who from 2008 has some very enjoyable episodes, and some sappy ones.
The IT Crowd. I watched every episode and loved it! A nerdy treasure!
The Dick Van Dyke Show. Yes, the show from 1961 with Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore. Darn good shows. Entertaining and fun, and not nearly as dated as it could be.
House of Cards. Netflix’s entrance into television production. Watching the show is a fascinatingly sadistic experience.
30 Rock. I’ve watched my fare share. I like it. It’s just crazy enough for me.
Eureka is pretty fun.
Modern Family is pretty good television
Burn Notice. I watched a bunch of episodes. It feels like spy edu-tainment :-)
Breaking Bad. Intense. Intense. Intense.
How It’s Made. They show how the coolest stuff in the world is made with awesome factory processes with narration that makes me want to put an ice pick through my ears. Maybe I should just turn the volume down and enjoy.
The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret is a fun one trick pony.
Mad Men. I don’t know, it just doesn’t interest me
I am not watching It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Don’t like it. It’s honestly mean spirited.
The Youtube needs to sneak it’s way onto this list at some point. Epic Rap Battles of History, Cracked.com, Imgur.com Gallery, BestofYoutube.com, 5SecondFilms.com, The Daily Show, Scam School, SMBC Theater, Instructables.com, etc etc etc etc etc!!!
