I really like your “cancelled too soon” list. There’s a lot of those hidden gems out there, Huff was just awesome. Here’s another one, dig it up, its old but was way ahead of its time.January 29, 2013 1:49 pm at 1:49 pm #531215
Yeah, you really do. Everyone does. But start at the beginning, don’t jump in…
The original British version of Shameless is awesome! It’s on Hulu and Netflix. I haven’t had a chance to watch the American version yet.January 29, 2013 2:20 pm at 2:20 pm #531216
Couple new ones to keep an eye on are The Following and Banshee.
The Following is Kevin Bacon’s new show, very Silence of the Lambs style. Super smart, charismatic serial killer escapes prison, Kevin Bacon was the agent who caught him originally. The twist is, the killer had built a network of serial killers via his visits to the law library, and has put a pretty ambitious plan in motion for revenge.
Watched this last night. I don’t get too wrapped up in any TV shows, but this one was legit fucking creepy. when they found that cult house…yikes. I honestly thought the gore and scare factor would have given this an R-rating were it on the big screen. Pity to any 6 year old kid that happens to be hiding behind the couch when mom and dad are watching this. I mean, Dr. Who and Twilight Zone were enough to traumatize me in that scenario.January 29, 2013 2:25 pm at 2:25 pm #531217
Yep GR, and you get the “anyone can die” feel on the show too. Maggie Grace was in the pilot, playing the sole survivor of the dude’s killing rampage when Bacon caught him. Typically, at least on TV, that’s a character who will live (plus played by a somewhat major star). Yep, not so much.January 29, 2013 3:46 pm at 3:46 pm #531218
Going to check out the pilot of The Following tonight.January 29, 2013 7:30 pm at 7:30 pm #531219
Just watched the first episode of The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret last night. So far, so good.January 29, 2013 7:31 pm at 7:31 pm #531220
Just watched the first episode of The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret last night. So far, so good.
It gets a lot quirkier as it moves along, maybe a little too contrived. Arrested Develoopment walked the line much better.January 29, 2013 7:43 pm at 7:43 pm #531221
I watched the whole first season of Todd Margaret. Fun concept, and David Cross is great, but I agree that it did feel a bit contrived in points. It was also borderline cringeworthy in parts where I could barely stand to watch him dig himself deeper into holes. Sort of like Curb your Enthusiasm, but a little more surreal?January 30, 2013 4:01 am at 4:01 am #531222
Just finished episode 1 of The Following.
I’m sold. Quality stuff.
Glad I glanced over the big spoilers above. :)January 30, 2013 4:19 am at 4:19 am #531223
LOL! Yeah, I thought about that after posting it.
Am I right though? TOTALLY expected her to be a main character in the show. Only reason I had any doubt is she’s a regular on Californication this season too.January 30, 2013 12:59 pm at 12:59 pm #531224
OK, so here’s my list. Bear in mind, because I watch almost everything online I watch a lot (already watched White Collar, Justified, and TUF this morning LOL)
Sons of Anarchy
American Horror Story
Always Sunny in Philadelphia
The Ultimate Fighter
None now that Last Resort is cancelled.
Hell on Wheels
Game of Thrones
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Eastbound and Down
Up and coming shows I’m interested in:
DaVinci’s Demons: Starz
The Americans: FX
House of Cards: NetflixJanuary 30, 2013 1:01 pm at 1:01 pm #531225
OH…almost forgot…apparently Josh Whedon is doing TV again in the form of an Avengers spinoff, S.H.I.E.L.D and that would be the thing I’m most interested in for 2013.January 30, 2013 1:05 pm at 1:05 pm #531226
The new seasons of Shameless and House of Lies have been amazing so far.January 30, 2013 2:01 pm at 2:01 pm #531227

Gilbert Smith Jr
Really didn’t expect to see him homesick/crying 10 minutes into the 2nd episode…January 30, 2013 2:44 pm at 2:44 pm #531228
I really like An Idiot Abroad, but it’s coming to an end.
