Non-Anime TV Programs You Follow

Recommended Posts

STVO   

I know almost everyone here watches anime here (or try and watch it here and there like myself), but out of curiosity, what are you watching on television on the live action or American animation front?

 

I primarily watch stuff on Netflix but have started a few programs on TV as they premiere. Here they are:

 

Netflix:

 

Louie

The League

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Ultimate Spider-Man

 

 

Currently Watching Regularly (Or Somewhat):

WWE Raw

TNA Impact

The Following

American Horror Story (Can't Wait For Season 3)

Regular Show

Adventure Time

Animation Domination (For Cases of Simpsons and Family Guy, to me it's kind of Becoming an Out of Boredom Thing)

Shark Tank (Not a Big Reality Show Fan But This is Entertaining)

 

Want To Start or Watch More:

 

Walking Dead (Finished Season 1, It's ok but heard it Gets Better)

Breaking Bad

The New TMNT Show

Young Justice

 

And several hundred other shows I'm missing out on.

The only ones I actually attempt to keep up with are:

 

Doctor Who

The Amazing Race

So You Think You Can Dance

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

 

I've seen Sherlock and am interested in seeing more, but it's more "when I get around to it" than "as it airs". Also watched The Legend of Korra but frankly didn't enjoy it very much, so I'm pretty iffy on season 2. And that's about it. Unless "Football Season" counts.

 

EDIT: Oh yeah, and How I Met Your Mother. I'm a little behind so I forgot to add it. :P

uh, do you want shows we watch every episode of, or shows that we casually watch, or both?

i watch sherlock and louie, too! ..but those shows aren't even close to airing right now, and i watch them at my leisure, so..

 

new girl - i've been watching this, and it's slightly smarter than the average goofball situation comedy, and the characters all seem modeled well after the actors playing them; you really get a sense of 'quirky fun' that feels natural and organic. also, i was completely ambivalent to zooey deschanel before this tv show, but now, i totes dig her.

 

the rachel maddow show - one of the few political pundits i find to be both incredibly incisive as well as likable and entertaining.

 

peep show - it's my favorite show. it's, like, a dark comedy about modern life set in london, and it's shot in this weird avant garde way, plus you can hear the lead characters' thoughts. probably the smartest and edgiest sitcom in the last two decades.

 

meet the press - i don't think i'm the most political person, but i am kind of into watching serious political television.

 

the big bang theory - i started out hating this show (mostly because of leonard's characters), and although i still sort of hate him half the time, it's grown on me. a friend who said i reminded them of sheldon, and i watched it, and kept watching it because i just found his character alone really endearing. it's definitely silly and cheesy and not the most brilliant sitcom ever, but it's a guilty pleasure i've found myself watching consistently recently.

 

girls - it's one of those hbo dramas, mostly about a group of young women in their early to mid-twenties and pretty relateable stuff when it comes to dating, sex, roommates, whatever, etc. sometimes the drama can get a little ham-fisted, but the comedy is reliably amusing.

i'm probably gonna try out game of thrones soon, and i was really into adventure time during the last season, but i've been too lazy to keep up with it, and a couple of episodes i saw recently were disappointing. gonna try and get back into it, though.

 

all the stuff around when the flame princess was introduced was SO GOOD.

the apocalyptic finale was good, too, but i dunno..has there been a new season? did the show just reset??

I am totally with you on those two programs. Peep Show is probably my favorite television comedy of all time (it's a toss-up between Peep Show and Arrested Development).

Peep Show

Arrested Development

Right now I'm really into Korean Dramas so I have mainly been watching that. So much so that I feel I really fell behind on the new animes that may have come out or gotten big in the past 2 years.

 

Korean Dramas (that I recommend):

- My girlfriend is a nine-tailed fox: A young high school male accidentally releases a powerful nine tailed fox from her painting prison. When he flees in fear and becomes fatally wounded, she saves his life and he becomes her slave.

- The Great Queen Seondeok: A historical drama that chronicles the path to queendom for the first female queen of Shilla(an old kingdom of Korea) and the romance and struggles that accompany her journey.

- Rooftop Prince: A prince from the Joseon era (the last era before modern government in Korea) and his entourage are transported suddenly to the modern era in the midst of trying to learn what caused the sudden death of his wife. Through his journeys in the modern world he learns not only the truth of her death but also a lesson in humility and love.

 

Other Korean Dramas:

- Wild Romance

- Shining Inheritance

- My princess

- You are my destiny

- Cinderella man

- Third Hospital

- Fashion King

 

American TV shows (that I follow currently):

- Bones

- Grimm

- Being Human

- Supernatural(follow but am behind on)

- Young Justice (follow but am behind on)

- Winx club

- Adventure Time

 

American TV shows that I want to follow:

- Once Upon a Time

- Arrow

(and I am sure there are others but I have forgotten them)

Outside of anime I watch mostly crime dramas (CBS likes me, apparently) so...just gonna list these in order of what airs when:

 

NCIS

NCIS: Los Angeles

Person of Interest

Elementary

Grimm.

 

I also watch the Daily show and Colbert report, and I've been marathoning Bones on Netflix because I've always liked it but usually just caught reruns of it or the occasional new episode when I felt like it and I decided it was time to get caught up.

 

As much as I still love NCIS, though, Grimm has become my favorite. ><

I also watched the first episode, and I must say that it is delightfully campy.
