1. Frasier (1993)
Complete

Episodes: 264
Seasons: 11

One of the funniest sitcoms I've ever seen. 11 seasons of consistent, hilarious quality. It is filled with characters unpolished in output and neurotic in nature, and always retains an utmost human element to it's tone.

Complete

Cheap, crappy fluff used to fill air-time. Uses lots of cheap jokes, but they make you laugh so it's ok.

3. South Park (1997)

Episodes: 209

A great television show that will be remembered in history as a fantastic enterprise and example of how you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover.

Complete

Episodes: 105
Seasons: 5

The great return of the TV-serial. Jennifer Garner gives a very good, human and believable action performance, and the show is riddled with awesome actors from every corner. The plot twists during season 3 are crap, but overall the show is a very strong showcase of how you do a show that spans five seasons to come full circle.

6. Lost (2004)

Fun and entertaining, but a far cry from being as thoughtful as it wants to be. Still need to finish it.

7. Dexter (2006)


Episodes: 96
Seasons: 8

Eh. This is a show full of great ideas but it crams itself so far up it's own ass that it consistently thwarts said ideas. Then, while retconning it's mistakes it crams those new things even further up it's ass, causing a cycle where the first half of every season is interesting build-up and the rest is... well, crap. The fourth season is consistently great though.

Fun, witty and not that annoying in 30-minute portions.

9. Seinfeld (1989)
Episodes: 86
Seasons: 5

A sitcom that differentiates itself from practically all it's peers with intelligent and incredibly mean humour. The main characters are all assholes with no direction in life and we can't help but love them for this.

11. Entourage (2004)
Episodes: 66
Seasons: 5

A show that is funny when Jeremy Piven mocks the cultural zeitgeist but sucks when anything else is happening. The plot lines become repetitive and boring around season 3, with only the occasional glimmer of hope thanks to a rather solid cast.

12. Spider-Man: The Animated Series (1994)
Complete

Episodes: 65
Seasons: 5

A pretty damn good saturday morning cartoon show. More action packed than the Die Hard-movies and about three times more entertaining. Recycled animation and the occasional crap episode prevent it from being among the greats though.

This show has a really, really good first season. As with the Highlander-movies, there should've been only one.

15. Prison Break (2005)
Episodes: 57
Seasons: 3

A retarded show with retarded actors that never, ever stops moving. It's like a freight train out of control and you can't avert your eyes until you see it wreck. At least if you can afford season 4 that is, something I have not been able to do for quite a while now.

Oz is as fun to watch as it is intelligent and thought-provoking. A source of many things memorable, this is one of the shows that just keeps on giving.

19. Burn Notice (2007)

Great fun. Charismatic lead actor and the writing is witty and clever enough to get a positive James Bond-feel to this Miami-based actioner. Bruce Campbell never hurts either.

22. Twin Peaks (1990)


Episodes: 30

The first season of Twin Peaks is some of the finest damn tv ever. The second season is still good, but starts dragging with the absurd overtones taking over the entire show.

This show is better than any of the non-Michael Mann-Lecter films and better than the books it's based on. Beyond impressive.

29. Sherlock (2010)
Episodes: 9
Seasons: 3

This is a really popular show. Amidst S3 it was all Twitter was talking to me about. And yeah, this is, along with Christopher Nolan -movies, exactly the type of pseudo intellectual mainstream action that fanboys and -girls love fawning over. Which I don't directly take issue with, because I happen to enjoy the show as well. It can get very tiresome, as especially Moffat, one of the two writers working on the show, relies far too heavily on chronological mix-ups in order to maintain tension and he always, undoubtedly, fails at this, causing only annoyance as he cuts away from pivotal scenes only to focus on something else for like three minutes, then return.

That being said, it's a show filled with texture. The characters and their very mixed up relationships are fascinating to follow, and even Sherlock, despite being a sociopathic dick, is written very well. The acting is top-notch throughout and Andrew Scott's... well, unique, portrayal of Moriarty is one of my favorite villains, period, just due to the unorthodox nature he uses to portray to the character.

It's also a show that gets away with a ridiculous amount of bullshit just because of all the writing gimmicks it uses. No other show could kill of it's main character this many times and have him live, but Moffat&Gatiss manage well enough by applying so much mascara, glitz and glamour over everything that all these small things, flaws one might say, seem to be elevated out of the greater whole. It's a show that's more than the sum of it's parts. And the less you know about writing things, the better that whole seems. For me, I'm somewhere in the middle, because I can see the seams at all times, and oh brother, they are bursting.

Haistakaa nyt vittu


 

Listing episodes and seasons of my watched TV series, according to the amount of watched episodes only (despite their different running times). Updating only entire seasons. Usually counting regular episodes of seasons and following IMDb, for example separating different Jeremy Brett's Sherlock Holmes series and not including separate TV films even if they are sequels/prequels/in between the standard episodes.

Idea and description copied shamelessly from Wendel.

i'd like to know your impressions on dexter's seventh season, did u enjoy it?
Posted: 1 year, 3 months ago at Jan 21 18:12
Dexter's 7th season.. well, it's better than the sixth. I honestly think they should've gone with this Dex VS Deb-setting instead of what they did, now the ending of S6 felt like it was brushed under the rug way too fast. I appreciated that they tried to make some thematic context to the season, which is rare for that show since it's understanding of themes seems to mostly be throwing single sentences here and there. The relationship with Dex and Hannah was also well-realized although I'm getting tired of hearing him go "Maybe THIS woman will teach me to be different!" every season.
