The chattybox - anything EXCEPT football

Touch is also amazing, but only a few episodes currently. :( On that note, 24 and Dexter too.

 

24 and Dexter all watched! Great shows. Same as Buffy, Angel and Firefly!

 

Touch is a show I've been keeping an eye on, will be watching when its a full season old! One show thats started recently I am watching is Awake. Now thats an incredible piece of television, really really recommend it!

Ah now Fringe is an idea.. I watched the pilot of it, it was ok, nothing really grabbing to be honest. And I felt the acting was a bit below par too.. Does it get better?

 

Community, HIMYM, Supernatural are all great.

 

Gets a lot better, when John Noble gets more into it becomes hilariously good. Has recently dipped a bit but it's picking up.

 

I also second Welshy and his Buffy and Angel recommendations, I would also suggest Farscape.

 

Also can't believe I left out Dexter :(

Anyone got any decent recommendations for TV series's to watch? Preferably would like something with an arc across a season or seasons rather than episodic? Running low on Veronica Mars (Yes, I know a little girly, but feck it, Kristen Bell is amazing!)

 

24, Fringe, Lie to Me, Lost,

If you prefer British teachers is pretty good on 4OD at the mo. Or get yourself a box set of Waking the Dead - brilliant TV!

Maybe the last season had something to do with that! The incesty storyline at the end made me blank it from my memory..... We dont want incest in our tv programmes!! unless its Arrested Development :D

Strangely find myself addicted to Pawn Stars on History and Bio channels!!!

Also think the following are great.

Touch, Fringe, All CSI's, Hawaii 5-0, Criminal minds, Alcatraz, Grimm, Once upon a time, Mentalist, Chase, Unforgetable plus old school Buffy, Angel and all TREK to name but a few!!!!

Well, it's technically not incest but yeah, was a cringeworthy storyline.

NB4 you should give Ringer a look its getting pretty good.

If you want a mixture of bad acting and good looking women try Lost Girl.

Alcatraz is also pretty decent.

Grimm is ok.

Blue Bloods is excellent.

 

Gonna watch episodes 1/2 now of Game of Thrones if its anything like the first series I will be happy.

 

A few movies to download and watch.

Immortals.

One Day.

The Awakening.

Lady In Black

In Time

Real Steel.

Warrior.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

Dream House.

That should keep you busy. :D

For some classy TV comedy, try the beeb's "Him and Her" and "Outnumbered" and the American series, "The Big C". They've all shown at least two series, with more in the making.

 

I came to "The West Wing" very late in the day, got hooked and watched the whole marathon in a few weeks last year.

 

"Mad Men" is worth a look-in as well. Watch out for January Jones (Don's wife) doing her acting bit. She's genuinely hilarious without meaning to be.

 

"The Wire" might suit you but I gave up on it because I couldn't keep up with the plot(s) - far too much "gangsta rap".

Ringer I'm still undecided on. have been watching since the start cause of two reasons (sarah michelle gellar and sarah michelle gellar. Twins. Dont need to say any more!). I like it in parts, but its a bit too... Soapy at times. But over all its been an intriguing first season if nothing else.

 

I didnt like in time, I thought they wasted a great concept with terrible casting and a brainless good guy vs bad guys plot, with a bitta robin hood thrown in for good measure.

 

Warrior was fantastic. I loved every minute, and particularly liked Kurt Angle as the non speaking Russian killing machine! Epic!

I tried the wire, watched the first episode twice, but each time I had zero desire to watch the next episode. I just dont think it appeals to me. Mad Men I may try at some point, but I'm not a massive fan of periody things (jokes witheld please!).

 

What styles are the two british shows you mentioned? I tend to find modern british humor very unfunny, and although they are responsible for the best (only fools, porridge etc etc), I havent enjoyed a british comedy since Black Books (save for the Gervais shows).

    • Gibbos new estate is looking nice anyway.  Should distract him from this shower of *** club performance
    • The March international break is far too late. We may not quite be relegated yet then from a mathematical point of view, but we will be in practical terms. We only have 6 matches left at that point, some of which are against teams who may well be fighting for a play off spot. If he thinks someone will come in and win all 6 games and save us then he is totally deluded.   (I know you know this anyway... I am just seriously struggling to see any logic in Gibbo's thinking)
    • I've given the board a bit of a break from my rantings so apologies in advance for those of you who'll read this.  I'm so so sick of how amateurish this club is being run right now. Honestly this season is the first where results don't even particularly bother me anymore, honestly id forgotten about the result until my dad told me about it.  This season is absolute car crash. The summer should've been the perfect time and opportunity to bring in a decent manager who can work with low budgets, but instead we've just wasted it on an amateur who's almost been given a blank card to do what he likes with little repercussions from the above because it would mean Steve having to admit he was wrong.  Having to rely on untested youth just simply because successive managers have spunked money on absolutely awful players, and the top brass have refused to intervene, or at worst they've encouraged these signings.  I'm so fed up with this appointment in particular, because I can't see how any other manager who's only produced 4 wins this close to Christmas would stay in a job, with his only main attribute being that he's a Teesside lad.  And that brings me to the Crux of the problem. The parochialism, the whole "local lad, he's a local lad, proper Boro, Boro through and through him" is killing the club. Karanka, an outside appointment was the first time the club seemed to be even vaguely professional, yet after being failed in the Transfer window, he was sacked and replaced with a god awful manager in Steve Agnew.  The club's transfer policy refuses to look further than the south coast for players, yet some of our best value players were overseas.  Club is an absolute shambles from top to bottom at this moment and nothing at all will change. Well just plod on from loss to loss to draw to unconvincing win. 
    • 4 wins all season is a joke.  Any other manager that wasnt Woodgate would be long gone by now.  In the summer, fair enough, give a rookie a chance. But by christmas time more damage will be done by not getting rid of him.  It is a results business. Repeat. It is a results business.  Woodgate should do the best thing for our CLUB and walk away. Admit defeat and that he was out of his depth.  Gibson should have done this weeks ago. But alas. Here we are.  4 wins all season. 5 points off rock bottom. With the squad we have???? Just when will the tipping point be?
    • It's becoming quite comical now isn't it seeing Woody come up with the same excuses and then the player doing the player reaction more or less saying the same thing lol
