Back to Forum: Coffeehouse
  • Beetlejuice

    Hello programms! Big Smile

    Last 4 years i watching "The Pretender".
    its about genius (Jarod) who can be everyone he wants to be... he was escape from "Center" and now he fight for truth and justice. He like a big child, he square shooter, and always in a advance.

    "Nash Bridges" - about cops, very good team.

    "The X Files" - a saw it all 3 times... but now i not be delighted.

    What your favourite TV - show and why?

    Star Trek - The Next Generation
    The first 3 seasons were good, but after the fourth it started to get really good, then in the last few seasons you got episodes like "Tapestry" which were wonderfully done.

    Star Trek - DS9
    Not a fan of all of the episodes, but after the short-lived Klingon/Federation war it started to pick up. Once the Dominion War started the show really started to gain speed. The Dominion War started out a bit lame, then that gritty hand-to-hand combat episode in which Nog lost his leg in battle, the show started to get good. And the big space battles of the 6th and 7th season were nicely done.

    BattleStar Galactica
    Best Drama on TV. All you got to say about it. I knew it was going to be extra special when:
    1) The Pegasus arrived and they didn't copy the original series and blow it up when it first arrived. What happens when you put Lloyd Bridges in charge I guess.
    2) They actually did "1 year later" at the end of season 2. You know the show has incredible writers.

    And House, Hell's Kitchen, Holmes on Homes Cool

    Simpsons and Family Guy, because they're among the funniest and most intelligent shows ever.

    Two shows I loved but which got a bit dated are Soap and Night Court.

    Lately I've started following Scrubs, which is also great.

    I'm not much of a TV junkie, though. I don't even have one at home, and either see DVDs/downloads or catch something at my parents' once in a while.

    The Simpsons - because it's funny
    Futurama - because it's Fururama
    Everybody Loves Raymond - because it's on TBS all the time
    Invader Zim - Because Zim is awsome
    The Pretender (I just remembered about it.  I used to LOVE that show!)
    Myth Busters - because it's interesting to watch

    Battlestar Galactica, one of the best SF's ever.
    Star Trek: Enterprise, sometimes as good as BG.
    Regenesis, very original show.
    And LOST, of course.
    Sometimes i watch Alias too.

    I can't believe no one's mentioned one of the best comedies in recent memory (and my all-time favorite show) --

    Arrested Development.  This is a comedy with exceptional writing, where you can watch an episode repeatedly and find something new every time.  Even though it only lasted for three abbreviated seasons, every episode was exceptional.  The cast was brilliant, and made even the small things -- reaction shots, dramatic pauses -- laugh-out-loud funny.  Its been said that the downfall of the show was that the Bluths came off as cold and unlikable, but once you get to know them, you'll find the exact opposite is true.  This is dry, off-the-wall, quirky humor at its finest.

    Runners up:

    Curb your Enthusiasm
    The Office (US)
    Boston Legal
