    Since this topic came up in the Netflix thread, I figured I might post my up to date favourite TV shows list:

    1. Veronica Mars: still my favourite. Great cast, great writing, great premise, and beautifully shot. It's always a genuinely sad feeling when you come to the end of it and have to say goodbye to the characters.
    2. The Wire: a proper cop show. No superhuman cops, just people who often fuck things up and feel like real people. It maybe lost a little bit of steam towards the end, and a couple of caricatured elements crept in, but a very powerful telling of what life is like in Baltimore, and why.
    3. Firefly: only Joss Whedon could make a space Western work this well. Helped by a great cast and great writing. Hilarious and serious at the same time. Props for having no sound in vacuum.
    4. Daredevil: the best action you'll see on a TV screen, fantastic cast, and beautifully shot. That they made such an outlandish premise feel so real and gritty is a credit to the writers.
    5. The Expanse: I do love hard sci-fi. Cool and believable premise (no matter how advanced our tech is, humans will always be arseholes lol) and for the most part has a great cast (with a couple of exceptions). I haven't seen season 3 yet (it's not on Netflix yet) but I'm really looking forward to it.

    Rather than my fav all time these shows are my fav lesser known or talked about shows that perhaps are overlooked but still excellent.


    1. Oz (1997)

    The lives (and deaths) of a group of inmates and their overseers in the Oswald State Correctional Facility or Oz.
    This show was way ahead of it's time, contains extreme levels of violence (seriously) language, sex and prejudices an/or racism. It also contains some of the best written characters I have seen in a TV show.

    I will never forget witnessing the journey of Tobias Beecher upon arrival as a gawky pencil pusher pushed into, and further towards, hell.

    And a truly terrifying antagonist in Schillinger.


    2. Wildside (1997)

    A detective now seemingly disgraced via the touch of corruption returns to Sydney in search of his missing teenage son. The seedy underbelly of Sydney is on show as he searches and gets enveloped in the lives of the down and out of society.

    He befriends a doctor at a local drop in centre and helps her, help him.

    It involves issues pertinent to Australia at the time, such as the Royal commission into Police corruption, abuse of youth, paedophile rings, politicians and petty crimes.

    The acting is brilliant, especially in the first series as a man desperately gets closer to either breaking down or finding his son, he uncovers even more than he may want to.


    3. Ash vs Evil dead. (2015)

    This show is just non stop gore and fun, one scene in a sperm bank with a touchy magazine and some use of bodily fluids that Something about Mary would be proud of tipped it over the edge into greatness.


    4. Tales from the crypt. (1989)

    This show may appear cheesy and yeah it can be, there are also many,many terrible episodes, but trust me, the good episode are very good, and the great ones are worth it.

    It is a bit like the X-Files in the monster of the week episodes, it has horror, humour and sometimes even heart...not to mention a kick arse assortment of famous actors.


    5. Dirty Jobs. (2003)

    Mike Rowe goes to a variety of dirty, disgusting or lesser known professions and finds out how to do them, as simple as that, but so good to see occupations I had never known existed and the passionate people who partake in them.

    Oz was a great show. Used to watch it on SBS. Chris Meloni is a brilliant actor. Both comedic and serious roles. I'm still pissed about his last show "Surviving jack" which got cancelled after 8 episodes. Fuck you fox.

    His new TV show "Happy!" is excellent. It's about an ex-cop who teams up with his daughters imaginary friend after she is kidnapped. Weird but funny.

    Also just finished watching the latest season of "The Goldbergs". It's a really funny show and is based in the 80s so has some great nostalgia.

    Man that Happy! show looks great Jackal! Will check that out for sure.


    Also I have not seen it complete yet however it looks like in Who is America? Sacha Baron Cohen is allowing those he interviews to unleash their own stupidity upon the world again.



    Seen some reviews scathing at him, calling him washed up and no longer threatening. Others applauding him for having torn off the veil of the decency façade that the powerful of America hide behind.

    As a TNG fan I wish I could be excited by this but since it is happening on CBS, with at least one of the creators of ST Discovery I will be remaining skeptical. I couldn't stand Discovery, it was a god-awful POS.

    I'll check it out when it drops but if it ruins Picard I will be very very annoyed.

    I'm a big fan of Peaky Blinders. It's the best crime drama I've ever seen. Cillian Murphy did his best in these series.

    So the guy who writes for Rick and Morty has been given the greenlight to do a animated Star Trek comedy series, Below Decks, he is a huge trekkie apparently, his spiel was that he wanted to do a series about the minor characters, like the guy whose job it is is to put the yellow capsule into replicators to make bananas.

    Anyone looking for an interesting new show to watch should check out Mike Judge Presents: Tales From the Tour Bus.

    It is a great comedy/documentary from the creator of Beavis & Butt-head and King of the Hill.

    Season 1 follows Country Music tales.



    Season 2 the Funk era

    Did anyone here watch the TV show Chuck? I’ve never seen it, but recently some scenes popped up in my YouTube feed, and it piqued my interest a bit. Worth checking out?

    It's ok, characters are memorable and likeable, especially the girl whose name I forget but she is amazing.
    I must revisit it as I think I only saw maybe 2 seasons, the first season is certainly worth it, I don't remember the later ones being as good but it was some time ago.
    It's no breaking bad but if you have nothing better to do you won't hate it.

    I know what you meant Stoney, but I had a good chuckle at the above

    The amazing chick is Yvonne Strahovski, an Aussie. Wikipedia tells me she was a fellow Westie who went to the ‘sister’ school of my school. She’s only a couple of years younger than me, so we probably would’ve been catching the same train to and from school every day. Small world.

    On the subject of Chuck, I see that it’s coming to Stan at the end of the month, so I might use the free 3 months of Stan that Playstation just emailed me to check it out.

    After being unable to source a local streaming option for Chuck, I bit the bullet and the ordered the whole series box set on Blu-ray. I’ve already finished the first two seasons and I’m really enjoying it. There are so many ‘gritty’ shows out there these days, so Chuck feels like a nice change of pace as something that is genuinely warm-hearted and optimistic in its outlook, and easy to watch. Stoney summed it up well when he said it was no Breaking Bad but something enjoyable to watch.

    The cast is probably the best thing about the show: they’re all great actors, but their chemistry is what makes the show. In terms of the main cast, their careers still seem to be going strong a good decade later too: Zach Levi is the star of Shazam (which must be coming out any day now?), and Yvonne Strahovski was nominated for an Emmy last year for her work on The Handmaid’s Tale.

    The show is chock full of pop culture references too, many very blatant, but some quite subtle. I’ll be interested to see if the quality of the writing stays strong in the later seasons. I hear that they were perennially threatened with cancellation and never knew if they’d be back, which never helps with the proper planning of story arcs.

    Love, Death & Robots.

    A collection of shorts, presented in a variety of animation styles with a sprinkling of David Fincher.

    Strange, disgusting, beautiful, interesting.
