Guys, seriously, if the show is on NBC, CBS, or ABC it's probably garbage.

Only old ladies watch CBS.

I know because my mother, grandmother, and both my aunts watch every show on CBS.

shit i forgot true detective which got picked up for season 2


Tell me the preview for that doesn't look like complete garbage.

It's like "hey, let's take the skin of successful show, and drape it over this vegetable, like some creepy taxidermist, and parade it around."

Like some mugen game.

Utopia on Channel 4 is pretty good Rot. I think it's the second series has finished, eagerly awaiting the next!

Seriously, watch Hannibal. It will make you question what can be done on network television. It's intelligent, brutally violent and the second season finale is the best 60 minutes of TV I've seen since Breaking Bad ended.

Also,

Game of Thrones (obviously) - people who don't watch it because they think it's fantasy bullshit, just do it. It's nowhere near as douchey as LotR and, even if the thought of dragons and shit makes your blood curdle, there's nonstop violence, political intrigue and boobs to distract you from the occasional dragon.

Banshee
- Relatively under-the-radar action show on Cinemax that I've thoroughly enjoyed thus far. It gets ridiculous at times but the action scenes are pretty bad-ass for a relatively low-budget show.

Daredevil - Unless you really hate comic book stuff, watch the first season of Daredevil. It succeeds where all of the other stupid superhero shows from the last few years fail miserably (read: corny CW bullshit).

House of Cards - I thought Season 3 was meh but the first two seasons are definitely worth a watch.

Hannibal: awesome sociopath situations, lots of suspense, drama and creepy murders

Vikings: great battles, interesting characters, less drama and backstabbing than game of thrones

Better Call Saul:

Louie: he does awesome stand up bits inside the episodes and they are extremely funny

I've been enjoying the 10 part mini-series Dig on USA. Really good if you like mystery/ suspense.

Banshee gets really good! Last season was just too good!

Another manly film i recommend would be Spartacus! Lots of gore, fucking, & male frontal nudity! It was glorious! The first 3 episodes seem like a 300 ripoff but it really gets good! "Once again gods spread cheeks & ram cock into fucking ass " Love that quote haha

I wanna make fun of you Rot but I kinda get it. Some of the violence in that show can make even the most seasoned gorehound... uncomfortable.

My wife likes that show. Kat Dennings is the only reason I don't leave the room.

I used to think the same thing until that blonde chick danced in that amish episode where she was grinding on someone.

Right now the only shows I enjoy:

Counting Cars
Grimm
Hawaii Five-O (Fun to see the ridiculous "actual" routes they takes that don't make sense, more of a local thing)
Bizarre Foods (New season just started)
Gold Rush (When it's on, just ended)
American Restoration
Sunny
Last Man on Earth
Louie

If I had the premium channels then I'd be watching a lot of the shows others have mentioned.

I really suggest Vikings if you like violence and medieval politics...though the religion stuff is getting to be a bit too much, though then again, maybe it was prevalent at those times. The women in this show are quite lovely too. And watching it in HD really captures how bleak medieval life might have been.

Also, Bates Motel. It is cooky at times, but visually it is a nice show to watch. The setting has a bit of a Twin Peaks vibe to it. And the actress that plays Emma is lovely.

Those are my only two must watch shows really. Other than that watch some reality TV, Survivor maybe.

corny CW bullshit? Arrow in its first season was excellent. It got worse. Give Daredevil time. Comic book heroes, by their very nature, come with a lot of filler.

If you want a comic book hero to transition to TV and not get corny, then you would need to have a set plan from the start, and not to try and squeeze more out of it. If Arrow was only 12 episodes, it would have been a lot tighter.

Arrow's first season was mediocre at best, season two was actually good, and season 3 is borderline terrible.

It's currently the third best DC comics show on the network. iZombie is better, and Flash is so much better it's not even funny.

At least Arrow is better than Gotham, SHIELD, or Agent Carter. Still haven't seen Powers and Constantine is dead.
