    McGyver OG, thumbs up! "NewGyver" just no.

    Des, do you know if they've done a second season of Man in the High Castle?

    The IT Crowd and Mystery Science Theater make me laugh.

    And I knew way before LOST ended that it was going to have a lousy ending... and I stopped watching it after only like 3 seasons because I saw where it was going. Yes, I'm that good!
    When Lost came out, my sister and I watched every episode, we loved it. But the writers changed- left, got fired or whatever after the second or third season and the show never was as good as it was at the beginning. The creators of Lost also created Once Upon a Time, which I was crazy about at first, but stopped watching it after about the fourth season for some unknown reason.

    Yep. Season 2 came out. I binged both seasons at once in December.

    It wrapped everything up well. No cliffhanger.

    But! A season 3 will be out soon.

    That's the typical trouble with those branching, Canterbury Tale.-style stories. They start out stupendously, but unravel a little over half way through.
    I loved the characters too, and I really feel that the second-to-last season would have been by far the absolute perfect ending. It was so incredibly cathartic, including the final episode. I guess they had to do one more season because of contracts or what not.

    The first time I saw Two and a Half Men was when their mom (loved Holland Taylor's character!) was marrying Robert Wagner, and they were spoofing CSI: NY for Wagner's murder following the wedding ceremony in Charlie's house. I did not know they were doing that, because I had never seen CSI: NY before, having lived without TV for so long! It was so frank and ribald and outrageous in its humor, I found it hilarious.


    I tried watching a few modern shows like Modern Family... But I found I do not care for the ploy of having the actors talk to the audience directly all the time, as it spoils the illusion I did watch a bit of The Big Bang Theory, and also plenty of the crime shows, like CSI: NY (loved that they used that Who song for their intro) and also Criminal Minds, but after a while it gets tiring having the darkest aspects of humanity served up as a plot-line to grab your viewing attention.

    Luther (with Idris Elba) really brought that point home for me. I also tried watching Twin Peaks (never saw it when it was originally on TV, though heard lots about it) but could not get through it. I never really got into Cold Case or True Crime, Bones, NCIS, or Law and Order, but I did like the ID TV shows of dramatizing a true story for the retelling as opposed to totally fictional tales...

    Ray Donovan seemed pointless and excessively profane. Never saw the Sopranos!
    Blind Spot started with an interesting premise but it gets tiring having to save the world from eminent destruction every single show, you know? Orange is the new Black also paled to grey over time.

    My daughter and I did watch much of Dexter. I saw about six seasons of The Good Wife, also. The Wire was fabulous! And of course all the Sherlocks, with me liking both Robert Downey Jr and Benedict Cumberbatch... and all the Fargos

    Parenthood was a good show, what happened to it? Do you remember Thirty Something? Me neither LOLOLOL. Oh I really liked the wit of Moonlighting Bob Newhart. They don't make them like that any more...

    Oh yes, Revenge ended a few years ago.. and I can't remember if I liked the ending or not lol. I got a little weary of watching it after that one guy showed up. I think his name was Adrian? Anyway, after he showed up I felt the show wasn't as good anymore but I kept watching because I really liked the main character.

    I'm not perverted either. Sometimes I wonder though if I should admit this.
    lol I watch Naked and Afraid sometimes. I find any kind of "survival" show a bit interesting.

    it was interesting for the first few seasons. i think they over-ran the premise, and that it really should have been only about a two-season special series. we stopped watching it too as the cheese piled up. i haven't checked, but i would guess the overall viewership is down, and that it will be cancelled before much longer.

    it may make me a heathen, but i really enjoyed all the aqua-teen-hunger-force shows ((which went by various aqua-teen-related titles from season to season)).
    the humor was often perverse and pretty much always crude, but it was always really imaginative & off-beat. very few comedies can actually make me laugh, but i found myself in stitches often watching that.

    rick & morty is similarly off-color, and i avoided it, but a friend convinced me to watch some, and i ended up binge-watching all that's available at this point, and enjoyed it too. south park is similarly offensive in many ways, but i appreciate the novelty of the animation style, and its art ((it is all hand-done, not cgi, which is increasingly rare these days)) - and it's often very clever, witty and insightful veiled or not-so-veiled-at-all commentary on modern society.

    the amazing world of gumball is another one of my favorites, and a whole lot more palatable.

    & of course i've loved futurama from start to finish ((?)), though it, like most of the others listed, features a lot of crude language and themes.

    i like cartoons haha, can you tell?

    Something to be said for that kind of living.

    Though I do think tv has gotten less brain-rotting as a medium. Online services are usually commercial free or close to it. You get the show and just the show. Nobody trying to sell you something or scatter your attention.

    For that we have our phones :P

    A commercial every once in a while is nice so you can get up and run a quick errand.
