What are you currently watching?
« on: August 31, 2012, 09:59:45 AM »
Doesn't have to be fantasy, and I know this isn't the correct section, but I saw no other place remotely fit for a topic like this. Basically, post what show you're currently watching, or movie series, or just movie.

Mine:

Season 2 of Grimm
Newest episodes of White Collar
Royal Pains
Suits
Community (Actually just finished, but only recently)
30 Rock (I had the first three seasons on CD, and only decided now to watch the rest)
Breaking Bad
The Wire
The Sopranos
Futurama
Re-watching Big Bang Theory
And I say this rather shame faced, but I'm also watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians... I was forced to do it, I swear!


Alright, your turn. Oh, wait, I'm going to add in the movie list as well.

Fight Club
Road to Perdition
Cast Away


Okay, now it really is your turn.
Oh, I have a blog. http://dullboredom.wordpress.com/

Check it out, if you've got the time. Much appreciated.

I watched Avengers for the 4th time last night. First time on DVD, though.

I've not really been watching anything except my weekly lovefilm DVD. (This week it's The Princess Bride, as I've never seen it!) I used to be a fiend for watching stuff but now there are only really 3 shows which I will actively try and watch:

-Breaking Bad
-Sons of Anarchy
-Game of Thrones

And I will be waiting with excitement (and a little apprehension), like most others, for the new Arrested Development.

Oh, is Sons of Anarchy good? I've been meaning to give it a try, but I don't really know of anyone that watches it, so I don't know if it's good or not.

SoA is AWESOME! In fact I can't watch it week by week because it does my head in waiting for the next episode so I wait until the series/season has finished and then watch it all in one weekend  ;D

I'm so unbelievably picky about TV shows, it sucks. Most stuff just makes me tune out. I just finished watching DS9 for the first time (every time I tried to watch it in the past, the trippiness of the first episode made me tune out). Right now I'm watching The Avengers for the first time, downloading Buffy to watch again for the third time (saw it first time at the start of this year, can't believe I always thought it'd be crap!) and then not sure what to watch.

From what I've seen on TVtropes, Supernatural looks like it could get awesome, but the first episodes were meh and too creepy for me (I can't do horror, creepy, disturbing or unsettling - Pet Sematary broke me). I might give one of the many vampire shows a shot, True Blood/Being Human/Vampire Diaries. Yet to see any of the Grimm show, might try the first episode. I've got season 1 of Farscape downloaded, and it's a great show, but this is like the fourth time I've started watching and gotten bored partway through season 1, but again, what I've seen on TVtropes seems like it gets awesome later on. Oh, and I've got Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere ready to torrent.

Any suggestions? I like scifi and fantasy, but I don't watch book adaptations (so no Sword of Truth or Game of Thrones). I love Buffy, Dead Like Me, Dexter (the ONLY realistic/crime show I like), Doctor Who, Reaper (cancelled too soon), Star Trek TNG, VOY and DS9, The Twilight Zone.

I've seen Smallville which was kinda meh, but it's the TYPE of show I like. Has plot arcs as well as just interesting "monster/problem of the week" episodes.

Being Human is pretty good. True Blood was really dry for me after the first few episodes. I liked Vampire Diaries, though it's rather difficult to get past the first few episodes, to be honest. There aren't a lot of sci-fi and fantasy shows, but you could try some of the Stargate shows. I haven't watched any of them myself. Chuck could be considered sci-fi enough, though. It was really great, though it lost a lot of its quality during its last season. Lost was pretty awesome, so I'd suggest that. The Wire would be a good show for you if you like Dexter. Another good sci-fi show that I loved was Misfits. Give it a shot. It's still ongoing.

Oh, derp, can't believe I forgot Stargate. I LOVE SG1 (joint favourite show), Atlantis was okay, Universe meh. Misfits was okay for the first season. I watched Lost up to season 4 or something and... meh, I just lost track around some point. And I tried the first episode of the Wire but hated it. Dexter is literally the ONLY crime drama style show I've ever not hated.

Actually I have. I watched it this afternoon! Hilarious film - Inigo Montaya is a brilliant character.

Oh, is Sons of Anarchy good? I've been meaning to give it a try, but I don't really know of anyone that watches it, so I don't know if it's good or not.

It's great - I would say so far it's one of the few shows (alongside Breaking Bad) that just gets better and better with each season. Amazing characters in it too. But it's definitely one to sit and watch in full - I'd hate to have to wait a week between each episode.

Doctor Who was just on, the first of the new season, and it had made me angry by the first ten minutes. I wish someone would drop a house on Matt Smith and Steve Moffat.

Just started watching Sons of Anarchy. Looking great. Anyone else notice that the actress that plays Jax's ex-wife pretty much plays every single junkie girlfriend or stereotypical Italian women in every Tv show that requires 'em? Seven, watch Fringe. Great show.

I watched the first episode of Dr. Who, but didn't really like it that much.

Can't wait for Doctor Who to air here in the states. Waiting with baited breath. I also plan on starting Battlestar Galactica soon, and am tentatively looking forward to more Arrested Development. Still not sure it's really going to happen.

In movies, really just waiting for Avengers and Dark Knight Rises to come out on DVD (I don't watch things in the theater that much, though I did see the Avengers and can't wait to see it again.)

EDIT: I can't believe I forgot the Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. I'm not terribly happy about it being three movies, but still, THE HOBBIT. DIRECTED BY PETER JACKSON. My excitement is near to bursting. I may actually explode before December.
