    OT: What series do you recomend?

    I was wondering if there's someone who is crazy as me when it comes to series?
    I watch several series and these are the ones I recomend:


    - Naruto (started today, kinda a cool, like anime) 200+ ep's
    - Moonlight (who can resist vampire series? not me) 16 ep's
    - Angel (another vampire serie, not as good as Moonlight tho) 5x22 ep's
    - Buffy the Vampire Slayer (hmm bad when it comes to vampire genre, but who can resist Sarah Michelle Gellar :wink3::tongue:) 7x22 ep's
    - Yu-Gi-Oh! (long time since i saw it but was kinda fun, not the best) 250+ ep's IIRC
    - Berserker (good serie but lousy end :angry:) 10+ ep's
    - Street Fighter (funny but thin story)
    - Charmed (another magic/fantasy serie) 8x22 ep's
    - Spellbinder 1 (the first season is really good, australien series) 18 ep's
    - Spellbinder 2 (not as good as the first but later it get's better) 18 ep's
    - Mirror Mirror 1 (the first was really good, a really high class serie) 18 ep's
    - Mirror Mirror 2 (another australian serie, not as good as the first but okey) 18 ep's
    Bones (funny criminal serie) (havent seen all so I dont know number of ep's)
    NCIS (really top class criminal serie) (havent seen all so I dont know number of ep's)
    Ugly Betty (very cool in a anlyze-way of watching) (havent seen all so I dont know number of ep's)

    So which ones are your favorite ep's you wanna recommend?

    Anybody who hasn't watched HUSTLE already, please do. And thank me later.

    BBC production, 4 seasons of 6 hourly epis. Most episodes are better than Ocean's 11 ;)

    The only complete series I have are:

    The World at War (The best documentary series ever made)
    Band of Brothers (One sided view of part of the above, but worth watching)
    The West Wing (If only Martin Sheen could be the real President)
    The League of Gentlemen (Very, very dark British humour)
    Scrubs (No brainer TV, but very funny)
    My Name Is Earl (As above)
    Miami Vice (Watched it originally in my late teens, cracking soundtrack)

    Re: OT: What series do you recomend?

    Lots of nice recommendations here already. =). Let's see...

    >> Cosby Show.
    >> Death Note.
    >> Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
    >> George Lopez.
    >> Hayate no Gotoku.
    >> Kanon 2006.
    >> Lucky Star.
    >> Neon Genesis Evangelion.
    >> Saturday Night Live.
    >> Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu.

    Don't watch Naruto and Yu-Gi-Oh! if you know what's good for you. They aren't that great, and they're super long.

    I love 24. Next is probably The Office. Right now I'm into Top Chef as well, and the usual Simpsons, Family Guy, Futurama, King of the Hill.

    Me, too.
    I like Heroes...

    But,
    I like House, M.D. even better.
    House's humor and wit is enough to cover my entertainment needs. :grin:

    I used to watch Lost, but kinda lost interest along the way. (pun intended)
    Got redundant to the point where you start thinking: "Are they losing interest with it hence the storyline?"

    Grey's Anatomy is decent as well...sorta.

    I also remember watching AeonFlux (cartoons, MTV production) late at night even on a school night when I was in my early teens...that was so long ago. :embarassed:

    and, of course, The Simpsons.
    Haven't watched them all, but I have the complete (I think) DVD collection.

    Re: OT: What series do you recomend?

    -HOUSE
    -Heroes (If it ever comes back from the writers strike :p)
    -Eli Stone
    -Planet Earth
    -Modern Marvels
    -Mythbusters
    -Family Guy
    -Futurama (Needs new seasons)
    -Naruto (tivo for those times when i need noise for diablo at 3am)
    -Lost (Oh right.... shows we like....or make sense....)
    -CSI
    -Numbers (if you like to feel dumb and are bored of CSI where things make sense)
    -Jack_ss (dont know if that will be asterixed)
    -Damn i forgot South Park

    And finally...... i might shoot you if you watch American Idol..... Just saying

    But if you're looking for lots of episodes and somethings that i dont understand why it is so great... Startrek.....(Not a fan nor will i ever be but someone else might be)

    Almost forgot Pokemon... if you're like 12 or are high..... whichever works for you

    P.S. Got to look into some of these other shows you guys mentioned.

    M*A*S*H - Brilliant. Just Brilliant. If you haven't seen this you've missed out on the best show ever!

    The Simpsons - Saxomophone? Obomobo? d'oh! I don't think this need any further explanation

    The PJ's - Thurgood Stubbs!. This show is a must-see

    Top Gear - I'm surprised to see so many people list this show since D2'ers are *almost* as nerdy as Starcrafters. Super cars + "Jackass" = awesomeness.

    @aman: Fawlty Towers?! AHAHAHA!! You rule, automatically.

    Lost, Simpsons, Top Chef, Seinfeld, and the show I'm most ashamed of, Fraiser.

    & the NBA playoffs. Go Celtics! :thumbsup:

    I watched the first season of Heroes and thought it was pretty good, although the beginning was the best, it got realy bad in the middle, and turned decent at the end. In my opinion. Is season 2 decent? I haven't watched any of it, although I might rent it on DVD or something...

    What? No Firefly? Or the follow-up movie Serenity? Great show, awesome movie.

    Futurama (Best show ever! Looking forward to the next three movies (straight to DVD))
    Clone High USA (cancelled MTV cartoon, basically half the cast of Scrubs and MadTV)
    Scrubs
    Heroes (don't worry frooglemon, it'll be back in the fall)
    Veronica Mars
    Grey's Anatomy (season finale last week was really good, though I just started watching it this year)
    CSI: NY
    Jericho (not bad, but got cancelled TWICE)
    House MD (occasionaly)

    Simpsons and Family Guy just because they're both on about 3 times a day each.

    Used to be a big fan of Buffy and Angel, but I haven't watched them in a while... (I've got the first 4 seasons of Buffy though) :rolleyes:

    Other MTV cartoons that only last one season because MTV producers don't know a good thing when they've got it (a lot like FOX) like Undergrads, Spy Groove, etc.
