The Tudors (2007)


What is it about?

This costume drama features England's splendid Renaissance dynasty under King Henry VIII. Beginning in Season 1 when Henry VIII was growing desperate for an heir and growing distant from his first wife, the series moves quickly to the period when Anne Boelyn became his obsession. During this time Cardinal Wolsey rose to become the power behind his throne, ruling ruthlessly and nearly absolutely while Henry (played by Johnathon Rhyes Meyers) for the most part followed the Cardinal's advice, maneuvering through a series of betrayals and plots against him. When Anne Boelyn plays much harder to get than any woman ever has, Henry begins to search for a way out of his marriage to Katherine of Aragon, so that he can make Anne his wife. Needing a divorce, Henry turns to Wolsey, who promises to help him create waves of backlash from the church, as well as the Spanish Habsburg dynasty and its overseas empire...

Scrubs (2001)


What is it about?

Scrubs focuses on the unique point of view of its main character and narrator, Dr. John Michael "J.D." Dorian (Zach Braff) for the first eight seasons, with season nine being narrated by the new main character Lucy Bennett. Most episodes feature multiple story lines thematically linked via voice-overs done by Braff. According to Bill Lawrence, "What we decided was, rather than have it be a monotone narration, if it's going to be Zach's voice, we're going to do everything through J.D.'s eyes. It opened up a visual medium that those of us as comedy writers were not used to." In every episode J.D. has many comical daydreams as well as many "situation comedy" style lines, which are often a result of improvisation. At the end of most episodes, J.D. summarizes the story's theme in a sequence of shots that show how it has affected each of the characters.

24 (2001)


What is it about?

Federal Agent Jack Bauer can't afford to always play by the rules. As a member of the L.A. Counter Terrorist Unit, Jack must stop bombs, viruses, assassination attempts, and usually save someone he cares about at the same time. Every season of this series has 24 episodes, each unfolding in real time following a consecutive hour in one very bad day.

Note: I'm interested in ONLY the first season which I, as a matter of fact, have on DVD already for more than 1 year but I never take the time to watch it...

My verdict: I thought it was pretty good. As I expected, the concept of real time action is pretty cool and entertaining. However, during a standard 2 hour thriller, you always have a few improbable twists, can you imagine how many improbable twists they manage to fit in in 24 hours?!? Still, Kiefer Sutherland really rocks this performance and it is rather fun to watch.

Will I watch the 2nd season?
Fat chance...

What is it about?

It is centered on Rick Grimes, a small-town police officer from Kentucky, his family, and a number of other survivors who have banded together in order to survive after the world is overrun by zombies (or "roamers"), society collapses, and the remaining humans are forced to live in hiding to survive.

Deputy Rick Grimes, who was shot and ended up in a coma for an indeterminate time. When he awakens, he finds a post-apocalyptic world overrun with the walking dead. He leaves the hospital and discovers his wife and son are missing. Rick arms himself and, after hearing a rumor from a survivor, begins a perilous journey for Atlanta, where the CDC is said to have set up a quarantined safe-zone in the city and where his family may be hiding. During his journey, Rick sees the devastation left by the "walkers" (a nickname given to the zombies). Upon reaching Atlanta, he soon discovers that the city is overrun by the undead and is no longer safe.

My verdict: I'm not sure what to make of this one... Like the giraffe pointed out, the 1st episode was pretty awesome and the whole thing is really well directed, written and acted. However, does it add anything to the whole zombie genre? I'm not so sure... Furthermore, the ending of the 1st season with the doctor was really not convincing. Still, I definitely enjoyed it though. Eventually, I have watched the 2nd season. My god, there is a lot of talking on this one... Nick loved it as much as the 1st season but I thought it was really heavy and emotionally (suicide, people killing each other, executions,...). At the end, I was really drenched emotionally. Still, strong directing, very good acting and some very well rounded characters, absolutely.

Will I watch the following seasons?
I watched it with Nick, my step-son and he absolutely loved the 1st and 2nd season so I'm pretty sure we will watch the rest eventually.

Dexter (2006)


What is it about?
Meet Dexter Morgan. By day he's a blood spatter pattern expert for the Miami Metro police department. But by night - he takes on an entirely different persona: serial killer. But Dexter isn't your average serial killer as he only kills people who fit a very prolific and precise "moral code" taught to him by his late father Harry (he didn't kill Harry, honest), and developed very thoroughly throughout each kill. While dealing with his daily activities and his boss, Sgt. Doakes, the one man who may or may not know the truth about his after-hours activities, he is given a friendly message by a guy referred to only as "The Ice Truck Killer" - a crime scene where there is no blood. This shocking discovery turns Dexter's world completely upside down. The Ice Truck Killer wants Dexter to play his game and Dexter is very eager to take on this cat-and-mouse chase throughout Miami.

My verdict: my wife and I both thought that it was pretty good. Indeed, Dexter is a great character and Michael C. Hall (who was already great in 'Six Feet Under') is just awesome here. I'm afraid the show won't be so good after 8 seasons but we'll see and, right now, it is just really fun.

Will I watch the following seasons?
To be honest, even though we both enjoyed it, we were not completely sure to continue after the 1st season after all. Indeed, apparently, it was a little too gory for my wife. In my case, even though I loved the character and Micheal C. Hall's amazing performance, even though the makers tried really hard to convince me that it was really edgy, at the end of the day, it is pretty much a really basic police procedural drama. Sure, the main character is great but everything else is rather generic. However, since my wife bought a Netflix subscription for me, we ended up watching the whole thing after all which was pretty neat.

What is it about?
Majority House Whip Francis Underwood takes you on a long journey as he exacts his vengeance on those he feels wronged him - that is, his own cabinet members including the President of the United States himself. Dashing, cunning, methodical and vicious, Frank Underwood along with his equally manipulative yet ambiguous wife, Claire take Washington by storm through climbing the hierarchical ladder to power in this Americanized recreation of the BBC series of the same name.

My verdict: For some reasons, my wife thought it would be a good idea to offer me Netflix for Sinterklaas (some kind of Dutch Santa Claus). Anyway, the first thing I decided to watch on the streaming service was this show and I was seriously impressed. To be honest, I still have to watch a lot of episodes but, so far, I thought it was quite spellbinding and, to be honest, much better than big hits like 'The Walking Dead' or 'Game of Thrones'. Indeed, I think that politics is a fascinating subject and there might never be a better show dealing with this ever again. Furthermore, the cast, especially Kevin Spacey, is really good here.

Will I watch the following seasons?
I was not so sure at first. I mean, I really liked it a lot but we had a 1 month free trial period for Netflix and, while the TV-show selection is pretty impressive, on the other hand, the movie selection is seriously disappointing so I wasn't sure I would keep Netflix then since I mostly watch movies. Eventually, since we also watch 'Dexter' on Netflix and since my daughter uses it a lot to watch some kid stuff, we decided to keep it and, by now, I'm finished with season 3.

What did the world look like as it was transforming into the horrifying apocalypse depicted in "The Walking Dead"? This spin-off set in Los Angeles, following new characters as they face the beginning of the end of the world, will answer that question.

My verdict: Since my step-son is a huge fan of 'The Walking Dead', of course, we had to watch this spin-off at some point. Well, even though it might not be really groundbreaking compared to the original show, at least, it kept the same quality level which made the whole thing really neat to watch.

What is it about?
According to Bryan Cranston, the term 'breaking bad' is a southern colloquialism and it means when someone who has taken a turn off the path of the straight and narrow, when they've gone wrong. And that could be for that day or for a lifetime.

My verdict: About 4 or 5 years ago, my brother-in-law showed me a couple of episodes and even though it seemed interesting, somehow, I didn't care much for the whole thing. Well, after all these years, I have decided to give a 2nd chance, this time, I was much more able to enjoy it.

What is it about?
Seven noble families fight for control of the mythical land of Westeros. Political and sexual intrigue is pervasive. The dominant families are the Houses Stark, Lannister, and Baratheon. Robert Baratheon, King of Westeros, asks his old friend Eddard, Lord Stark, to serve as Hand of the King, or highest official. Secretly warned that the previous Hand was assassinated, Eddard accepts in order to investigate further. Meanwhile the Queen's family, the Lannisters, may be hatching a plot to take power. Across the sea, the last members of the previous and deposed ruling family, the Targaryens, are also scheming to regain the throne. The friction between these clans, and with the remaining great Houses Greyjoy, Tully, Arryn, and Tyrell, leads to full-scale war. All while a very ancient evil awakens in the farthest North.

My verdict:
Once again, my wife at first wasn't really interested by the damned thing. In fact, months ago, we already gave it a try but, after the 1st episode, we thought it was so confusing, so difficult to follow, that both decided to drop it. Eventually, we gave it a 2nd chance and we both got hooked. Indeed, even though it is rather slow and nothing much really happens, the epic scale is just mesmerizing.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure we'll watch the whole damned thing.

What is it about?

Filmed over a 10-year period, Making a Murderer is an unprecedented real-life thriller about Steven Avery, a DNA exoneree who, while in the midst of exposing corruption in local law enforcement, finds himself the prime suspect in a grisly new crime. Set in America's heartland, the series takes viewers inside a high-stakes criminal case where reputation is everything and things are never as they appear.

My verdict:
After hearing some really good things about this documentary, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, it was quite fascinating but also seriously heartbreaking. It pretty much displays that the whole judicial system, at least in the USA, is pretty much a big joke.

Will I watch the following seasons?
Yeah, probably

The Killing (2011)


What is it about?

A police investigation, the saga of a grieving family, and a Seattle mayoral campaign all interlock after the body of 17-year-old Rosie Larsen is found in the trunk of a submerged car.

My verdict:
What I really loved about this show were those 2 great characters Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder, both very well played by Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman. To be honest, the cases they worked on were decent but not really amazing though. Above all, I think it was a poor decision to have their 1st case stretched over 2 seasons and it worked better on the 3rd and 4th season with each with their own case. Still, a pretty cool TV-show nonetheless.

Will I watch the following seasons?
Yeah, probably

As you may know or not, I watch tons of movies and, lately, I don't watch TV shows anymore. It is actually a shame since there are some pretty good shows out there. Anyway, this my wish list.

I try The Office (US version), but it didn´t make me laugh (maybe I should try Uk´s)
About True Blood I just watched the first season, I liked it but I not planning to keep watching it.
I can recommend House, Dexter, Lie to me, The Big bang Theory and 24 (was really adictive!).

you should add Fringe to the list, it's so good :)

@Cintia, I'm not really a fan of Joshua Jackson so I will pass on this one.

The Wire, Dexter, Breaking Bad, and Freaks & Geeks are on my want-to-watch list too. The Walking Dead is worth watching just for the first episode alone, and some others of these (e.g.: Pushing Daisies, Arrested Development, Boardwalk Empire) are definitely worth watching.

Only one here I've seen & dislike is Scrubs, but I seem to be in the minority on that one.

You have some pretty great shows here. I hope you'll get the time to see most of these. From my behalf I would recommend The Walking Dead, Dexter, Game Of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, Freaks and Geeks and even Pushing Daisies...

I'm actually thinking of watching Curb Your Enthusiasm too, seems like a good show.

six feet under. how i met your mother

@Noodles, I have already seen 'Six feet under', the whole thing. Indeed, a great show. 'How I met your mother' doesn't interest me at all.

I like Scrubs (Seasons 1-8, Season 9 sucked) and LOVE Arrested Development. Haven't watched the rest but I probably should.
Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Feb 24 22:12
I dont recommend Dexter,The Walking Dead and The Big Bang Theory.

Highly recommend watching Arrested Development. Some of the funniest TV out there. Shame the network treated it like shit. Mr. Robot is a great choice as well. Think of Fight Club without the fighting and a greater technology theme. Plus, who knew Christen Slater could actually do drama well?
