Thought I'd make a thread for discussing TV shows in general. Ones that aren't currently airing or haven't already got their own dedicated thread.

If you want to discuss a show that you've recently started watching, a show that you're annoyed got cancelled, get suggestions for what shows to watch next or just talk about the random crap you're watching right now then this is the place for it or anything relating to it.

RULES
  • If the show you'd like to discuss already has a dedicated thread, please post there instead.
  • Be careful about spoiling anything and use tags when appropriate.
  • Respect others and no bullying, etc.
  • Creative use of swearing is encouraged.


So, what have you been watching?

Waiting for new season of Wilfred later this month.

You lost me at "Lubricate."

I'm raw, like nature. Nature boy. Big jungle leaves are my cum rags.

Sometimes I fuck a bamboo shoot.

Didn't find anything in my search but if it works then it works and if not then no big loss.

I need more Twin Peaks in my life

I'm on the final episode and I'm gonna be sad when I've finished it in a way. It's been something else from start to finish and I've loved just about every second of it.

Is the movie any good? Because generally speaking, movies from TV shows are pretty piss poor.

The movie isn't bad, but it has a more serious/dark tone than the show. It's a "prequel" sort of, in that it's about Laura Palmers final days (save for one brief mention of an event in the final episode). I'd say it's worth a watch.

Unfortunately, there is almost no Dale Cooper.

Recently started watching White Collar for no particular reason. Had no idea what it was, but I'm now well into the second season and really enjoying it.

Just finished Twin Peaks. What was that? What was any of that? I think I understood it but I'm not even sure. I'd have questions but I'm not even sure what to ask.

Enjoyed it though.

I'll definitely watch it after all that.

You Twin Peaks guys should definitely watch the movie. Doesn't work at all as a stand-alone piece but it compliments the series really nicely. A few things are frustrating, like having a different actress as Donna and a few different filming locations but overall it's definitely worth watching. For sure there's some more disturbing stuff on there that wouldn't have made it onto tv though, it's a lot weirder and more surreal for the most part.

That final episode has some of the best bits of the whole thing I think. Be sure to check back in here when you're done

Ok nvm, just saw your last post

I just finished The Wire, which I'm completely obsessed with and angry that NO ONE ELSE I KNOW HAS SEEN IT OR EVEN HEARD OF IT, and the first season of Homeland, which was not that good and I'm so amazed that it gets sucked off so much by the critics. Right now I'm contemplating either starting Breaking Bad or catching up on the rest of Homeland to see if it gets better before the third season starts.

Also, my guilty pleasure is Franklin and Bash, which I for some reason really like.

Been hooked on Arrested Development lately. Didn't like it much to start with but now it's brilliant. GOB is a great character.

I've been watching this show about Australia's border security.

Very well scripted.

Watch that video below

If this video reaches 1000 views before Christmas, I'll play with my titties on cam.

You can watch Breaking Bad later, as long as you finish it before August 11th.
I don't watch a lot of TV shows TBH. I've actually stopped watching a few without finishing them, like Psych, The Office (after Micheal left), and Arrested Development. Has anyone seen/heard of Kyle XY by any chance?

That one scene at the FBI office with the security cameras and the missing agent always freaks me out

It's nothing compared to...

When they straight lift up the nail. Eyes, teeth, and nails always make me cringe something fierce. The tweezer scene in the first episode was one thing, but there is something about separating a nail from the finger that is just appaling

The last 20 minutes or so were phenomenal. Fantastic visuals and some really creepy stuff.

I do hate when they replace an actor in a movie based on a show. Best worst example I can think of is in the Dead Like Me movie when they changed the actress of Daisy and effectively erased all the character development she had went through. A lot of other things made that movie shit but that sticks out to me.

That said, if the actor is good then I tend to forget fairly quick.
