Not sure exactly where to put this but this is awesome.  

You would think a movie with a few hints of incest would be right up Ben's alley.

Now taking bets on which EWB favorite show Will is going to shit on next!

Just finished up the second and third seasons of Californication. David Duchovny is awesome, the women are hot and its only a half hour. Thats pretty much about it. It's one of those shows that you aren't really bothered by if you miss, but when you start watching you remember how fun it is, then completely forget again after its over. I'll most likely watch this again when the fourth season is done.

Really? Californication is one of the highlights of my week when it's on and I can't wait for the next series. Love, love, love it. Especially the series 3 finale. Hank Moody is one of those characters I watch and hate when anything bad happens to him.

I've been watching Leverage which is just awesome. Christian Kane back on my television is fantastic & the stories never cease to entertain me. Though I have a horrible time buying Gina Bellman in a serious role after the character she played on Coupling. I'm also starting to work on Burn Notice, which was okay. I've been told to stick with it for a few episodes, so I'm trying not to judge it until I've watched a bit more.

Also watching Black Books all the way through again. God, I love Dylan Moran.

They don't work for me, really. I seem to get them and they just stay red all the time. It's pretty depressing, really. They sometimes worked on my old PC, but they took hours upon hours to get a 40 minute episode. Sky Plus is awesome and all, but for the shows that don't come to the UK and stay in the US, I seem to miss out. Because fuck off am I paying some of the prices for TV DVD's.

There are better options. Check your PM box.

Anyways, I just started watching Gossip Girl and I have to say, even though I feel like a big ol' gay for watching it, I'm kinda digging it. It's like an east coast version of the OC and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that in my book.

Gossip Girl is fucking awesome. I'm still slowly trundling my way through Series 2 after keeping relatively up to speed with Series 1, but I'm not sure my uni housemates would understand me watching if they saw, so I have to pick and choose my moments like a ninja :shifty:

It's not even that gay though. A lot is down to the name. If Lost was called Fairy Island, I probably wouldn't be too open about watching that either.

Gossip Girl is glorious.

My Unemployment has meant I have delivered to myself the joys of Gossip Girl, the Delights of 30 rock and the down right sexiness of How I Met Your Mother, all fantabulous.

I finally caught up with 'House' on my DVR and am thoroughly underwhelmed this season. The show just hasn't been as good as it used to be for a while now. I might give up on it, but part of me doesn't want to with the thinking that the show only has a season or two left in it and am curious as to how it all will end.

It just started to click for me at around episode 7, the Halloween episode. Just an awesome, awesome show. I love the entire cast. Easy favourites have to be Abed, Pierce and Troy. I also have much love for Annie. wub.gif

Tonights episode was possibly the best yet. It's the kiss at the end that just made it. And god, I loved the 'this is a different Abed. He's possibly a Vampire!'

Any other shows you'd suggest Livid? I'm about to check out Better off Ted, but I'll need something to get through after I finish Burn Notice and if I like Better Off Ted, that too.

I'd suggest The Wire, The Sheild, The Sopranos and Curb Your Enthusiasm as shows to watch that aren't on that list. (Basically check out HBO's back catalogue).

And Garth Marenghi's Darkplace is awesome. (Y)

I've started watching The Sapranos. Got a few episodes left on the second season and the show is so totally awesome. I am truly in love with it. I can't recommend it enough.

I would suggest Mad Men (Alison Brie who plays Annie in Community is in a fair bit of episodes), Sons of Anarchy (Ron Perlman being a badass, as always) and White Collar (Matt Bomer who played Bryce Larkin in Chuck is the lead).

How is Lost by the way? I missed the beginning and just haven't bothered with it.

I'd go with the Mentalist. It sort of reminds me of Psych for some reason, but much darker. Maybe Burn Notice too? I'm in agreeance with everything Livid said though. Sons of Anarchy is fantastic, White Collar is a really fun show and I've heard really good things about Mad Man, but I've been putting off watching it for some reason that I cannot explain.

Lost was great for the first three series, started to take a turn for the worse halfway through the third, but it started returning to being great in about series 4/5. It'll probably be easier to get into if you watch it all in one go as well. I'd definitely try it, but if by the time Henry Gale is introduced you're still not digging it, then maybe it's just not for you. I love the show myself, but it defintly had a hard time when it started to transition from 'people on a deserted island' to all the more mysterious stuff surrounding the Dharma Initiative and the others, which I think threw a lot of people off. If you can get into the show though, you won't regret it.

I'll probably be Mad Men I try next, just for Alison Brie and Julie McNiven (who was Anna in Supernatural). I've gone through the first episode of Sons of Anarchy, and it was good - but Christ, it is fucking depressing. I usually bulk watch TV shows and I'm not sure I'd make it through S01 of SOA without offing myself halfway through. shifty.gif For shows like that I like to have a more light hearted comedy to watch in between episodes.

edit: @Serj, I may try The Sopranos at some point, but I've heard that the ending is terrible which has put me off it for a while. I'm also kind of tired of cop shows/private i/spy, so I don't know how far I'd get into The Shield.

Watch The Sopranos, it is one of the best shows in TV history and is quite worth it, even if the ending of it is a bit disappointing.

And Sons of Anarchy gets less depressing and more badass as it progresses.

Just finished the first season of Leverage. I'm a fan of heist movies and this follows in its tradition. Although I like Hustle better, this is some good stuff. Also caught up to present on Gossip Girl. Really feels like an east coast version of the O.C., which I love. Unlike most shows, most of the characters exist in a grey area, which is interesting because of the sheer number of things that you can do with them. Chuck and Dan are the best characters though by far.

I'd call The Mentalist "like Psych", "but much more shitty and unsatisfying".

It's like if you took Psych and stripped all of the fun out of it.
