Default Television

This is a thread to discuss anything you want about television shows. Anything from House of Cards to CNN. There is a thread for your TV lineup, but nothing where you can talk more about what you are watching.

Some random thoughts --

A friend got me to watch House of Cards. I am in Season 1, and I am so annoyed by the innacuracy and improbability re education legislation and the teachers' union that I am having a hard time enjoying it. But I am not going to stop. There's something about it. (How's that for some deep discussion.)

I saw this in a review of HoC. I think it's true -- "It’s a typical product of our current golden age of television—dark, expertly directed and acted, and about five times better than the average Hollywood film."

I agree. Good TV is so much better right now than most of the films I see. It encourages me (a little) to know that Big Bang Theory is one of the most popular shows on TV. It is smart. It does not insult its audience. It is not hostile toward any group. It's a delight.

I am like many people. I don't think there has been better TV than The Wire although it is a sad and disturbing watch.

I have not watched Downton Abbey yet. Not even one episode.

I understand what you mean about House of Cards but...still compelling TV and good to see Wright and Spacey.

See Downton and suspend commentary on class...another show that is better than film

YOu know, I am embarrassed to say: never saw The Wire, might have to binge about it

I loved house of cards. Loved it. The original UK version was good but for the first time ever, I think I like an American version of something better!
I love the relationship dynamics and the dark interactions. It turned me the hell on and I love Kevin spacey.

Downton is a fave of mine.

I don't watch tv, but I do have BBCiplayer and netflix. Most of the stuff I watch is on BBCiplayer so I would likely be a conversation of one for me lol

I love QI, Nevermind the buzzcocks and Mock the Week. Have I got news for you is good too.

I go nuts for well done period drama on the beeb like bleak house or great expectstions
They also did and amazing show last year around the war of the roses.

I love any of the science history series presented by professor Jim kahlili Everything and Nothing rocked my word and my favourite investigative programs are Panorama and Horizon.

For those who want to get the beeb out of country it's 8.99 a month and you get bbci player global.

well, season 2 is just as sexy, love Spacey but also love Robin Wright. watching it now as I write this, great chemistry

Does Netflix put the shows up in Canada at the same time. If so,take some down time and suggest you watch it

Stop being embarrassed and binge it. It's so good and appropriate for the current police brutality. I'm thinking of rewatching it. Or perhaps Mad Men - to gear up for the final season.

The Wire -- I caught it somewhere in the middle of it's run, went back and caught up; and then binge watched it again earlier this year!

At this very moment I am watching last night's ep of, Pretty Little Liars.
I do love awful and I do mean AWFUL teenage dramas.
After Pretty Little Liars I might watch, Girls or I have an ep or two of General Hospital to watch.
Oh the life of a bored housewife is very boring!

Not sure of how my list of recent past and present will come off.

I love shows with great writing but also present with a really diverse 'strong' cast.
I find shows that illustrate dysfunction, entertaining while at the same time sadly more ways realistic.
Plus some quirky drama, light fun, aside from history or science shows.

Anyways here goes;
Dexter - I will definitely miss.
Breaking Bad - I will miss.
Ray Donovan
Sherlock (UK version)
Mentalist
The Walking Dead (I need to catch up)

Sleepy Hallow
Rizzoli and Ilses
Grimm
Once Upon a Time
My Cat From Hell (Mentioned earlier. Great to see something for the felines).

I heard about Spacey and Macy shows. For whatever reason - I haven't gather the interest, but I love to watch both of these guys act. Maybe later.
