    The TV enquiry thread - no spoilers allowed

    After my faux-pas in the admittedly heavily spoilered TV show thread I figure there should be a thread where one can enquire about TV shows they've never seen to figure out whether or not they're worth watching, and for general spoiler-free reviews to gauge how good something is.

    Kicking things off: My personal top 5 TV dramas I've watched in the last 5 years.

    1. The Wire
    2. Boardwalk Empire
    3. Fargo (would be higher but it's only had 1 season)
    4. Breaking Bad
    5. True Detective

    Top 5 Comedies:
    1. Community
    2. Parks & Recs
    3. Arrested Development
    4. Bob's Burgers
    5. IT Crowd

    Dude Community has been trash since season 3 what is wrong with you.

    I thought Boardwalk became tedious after a few seasons.

    Eh, 4 was all right. Show definitely peaked in season 2 though. There was a 9-10 episode streak that season which is one of my favourite stretches of an any comedy I've seen.

    Yeah I think for me personally seasons 2 and 3 are very comparable in terms of quality. Certain episodes in season 4 (and a few in 5) hit that quality IMO but the overall quality wasn't as good. Similarly, the first season felt kinda lame for the first few episodes in the standard 'we're establishing characters and the sense of humour we'll employ but we still need to throw in a few standard sitcom hooks to try and draw a crowd' way, but the latter half improved massively.

    Probably the funniest show on TV atm. ****s all over Family Guy, new Simpsons and South Park in terms of animated ones, too.

    Yes! It's really the only comedy show the wife and I agree on.

    Thought the second season was pretty damn good as well. Personally I love the show.

    Haven't seen it yet, but yeah, when I was watching Series 1 on Foxtel, haven't been that excited about watching a show in ages.

    Upto Season 3 with Boardwalk, and struggling, for the same reason I've got to S4 of Mad Men and left it to one side - there's no characters that are likeable. Find it very hard to sit through an hour when all I'm thinking is 'WAC'


    Only shows I've been keeping on top of at the mo are
    Suits - just insanely good IMO, think in hindsight S1 is the weakest, so stick with it if you try it
    Agents of Shield - Its cheesy, but in a decent way.
    GoT - Obvz


    Quite enjoyed the BBC version of The Musketeers too, again, rather cheesy, but watchable.



    Parks and Rec is my next show on the list to watch - heard good things.
    "All are lunatics, but he who can analyze his delusions is called a philosopher." - Ambrose Bierce
    Langeveldt: I of course blame their parents.. and unchecked immigration!
    GingerFurball: He's Austrian, they tend to produce the odd ****ed up individual
    Burgey: Be careful dealing with neighbours whose cars don't have wheels but whose houses do.
    Uppercut: Maybe I just need better strippers
