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.

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

A once 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 and also about how things should end way earlier than this did.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I would like to give this show five stars but the second season is a severe drop in quality with about 3-4 episodes matching the quality of the first one.

EDIT after S3: S3 is the best season but the ending doesn't land in particular despite being a somewhat satisfying emotional end. I really hope this isn't the series finale. Which is odd for me to say since I kinda hoped this would be a single-season show.

EDIT after S4: Best show. This show became disturbingly topical in my life during S3 and it continued to S4 and it really helped me through some shit.

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.

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.

The first three seasons of this show are terrific and you need to see them and I've written about them here in Finnish: www.laajakuva.com/kaavamaisuus-vs-luottamus-eli-kuinka-paljon-rakastan-bansheeta/

The fourth season shouldn't exist and doesn't work despite individual cool touches. It's too restrained by the budget and format of only 8 episodes when the story told needed 20.

watching insecure characters be insecure and occasionally acknowledge that makes for a super insecure experience watching it. You can see the seeds of future discord so clearly and it hurts. But it's still really funny so it doesn't feel like a pity party.

Too much of a pastiche to be terribly enjoyable. You can see every story beat coming a mile away. Good acting and the nailed 80s-look helps to some extent. The score ain't bad either.

Update after S2:
This just overcame it's nostalgic trappings to become a show about childhood. Also, this is like if Phantasm 1 was a bad movie but Phantasm 2 was still Phantasm 2. Just wow. Upping to 4 stars.

Update after S3:
S3 of Stranger Things was good. About as good as S2. I didn't like the first one. Glad to see it keeping up the pace of being more about fun character bits and gory horror comedy than "oh look we had this in the 80s". On that particular note though, the ending is probably the best written thing in the entirety of that series and gives a promise that I really hope they keep because damn they kinda have a mid-credits scene that already fucks it up a bit.

I really wish I wouldn't have waited this long to watch this because now when S2 hits in April I might feel inclined to watch it but I know there is no way I will be emotionally OK with it this soon after this first one. A powerful show to say the very least.

EDIT AFTER S2: Gee this show sure fell down a drain pipe huh

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.
