I haven't seen any of them.

Or any other TV shows this year. Well, I watched a Blackadder DVD a while back.

Hopefully not the first series. If so, I can understand why you you would avoid TV.

I don't really avoid TV...I just never really sit down and watch it. Honestly, I spend more time on CC than watching TV.

But yes, I saw the first series of Blackadder only after some of the later episodes, and it was quite a shocking transition. Even so, it's very interesting how the characters develop/ed.

Any on my list are worth a a look, bar Community, which has a first season problem (not as bad as Blackadder, but it definitely finds its ground in the 2nd season).

Nah, not necessarily - just your top 5. Pick your 5, post 'em. Obviously not posting Breaking Bad will kind of signal you as a dunce though, or possibly someone who hasn't watched Breaking Bad, which is only slightly better.

I would say, ignoring sporting events:

1. Pardon the Interruption
2. Spartacus
3. Boardwalk Empire
4. South Park
5. Archer

Good call on Boardwalk Empire. I went off it a bit last season, then someone told me to give it another go. The last few episodes of the season were just great.

Boardwalk Empire- Richard Harrow:

Richard's my favorite character.

There's some Guinness Black Lager commercial and I knew right away it was the same actor in it that played Richard Harrow. Sort of weird.

You are the reason why the Discovery Channel and History Channel suck. I hope you're trolling.

This most recent season of Sunny was one of my favorites for sure.

1. NCIS (been my favorite for about 7 years now)
2. Law & Order SVU (still not the same without Stabler)
3. Mythbusters (always a good show)
4. MASH (classic series, pretty funny throughout)
5. Avatar the Last Airbender (f*ck you M. Knight Shyamalan, you made a great TV series into a shitty movie)
I am what I am.


What, you expected something deep or flashy?

Not sure I have 5, don't watch much TV really.
The Last Resort stands out as great tv.
Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution was wonderful.
Dr Who was in fine form this year, especially the final episode of the last series.
Game of Thrones, enough said.
Not sure if it was a new series, but I liked the Kids cartoon "Young Justice".

Oh look, there's 5. So I'll stop.
666 Park Avenue should get an honorable mention, though not anywhere like as good as it could have been.
Falling Skies is also very nearly good.
And remember what the poet said – “in booty there is loot, and in loot booty.” Or sump’n like that.
