BEST TV Show on "Reguar TV"

12 replies • Last post

AND the most well-written show I have ever watched on regular TV is by far.......................The Good Wife!

Surprised?

I know it may not seem special to those of you who don't watch this show, but honestly CL Friends, this show is amazing!

I don't know who the show runner and writers are, but they all have to be top-rate amazing. From the fun guest stars they are able to get onto the show to the awesome regulars and story lines, this show is honestly above the rest on the regular networks! And another amazing factor is it just keeps getting stronger! I am loving the new season so far. I don't know how they do it, but with each episode I admire them more and more.

If you have never seen the show, treat yourself and check it out! Smile

I just had to share. Smile

I have been enjoying this new season. The last episode was just ok with me. I do love Elsbeth though. I enjoy watching her think. So many great actors in that show.

I've watched Lie to Me a few times. It was an interesting show. I rarely watch tv. I catch shows on Netflix or Hulu though or buy the dvd.

Since Breaking Bad finally came to an end, I was addicted by the new seasons of Arrow, Walking Dead and Grimm. I can recommand all of these TV series. My individual award for the most well-written story goes to: Walking Dead. Great actors, great story, great setting. Wink

Marvel's Agents of Shield is one of my favorite new shows out there. I am a big fan and find it funny and it has a lot of cameos/tie ins to the Marvel movies.

I have heard good things about Agents of Shield, but I know little about it. I don't watch Arrow or Grimm, either, but I have a list of shows a mile long that I watch regularly and more that I am waiting for the next season to begin, lol.

I just caught up on an EXCELLENT FX show! If you need something to watch, DO check it out. It is called The Americans. It takes place during the Reagan years, during the "cold war" (and we all know how that went) when Russian spies were living in this country as American couples, spying for their "motherland."

The same person who runs one of my favorite shows, Justified, Graham Yost, Executive produces The Americans. And there are some familiar faces: Margo Martindale from Justified, Keri Russel, Noah (?(can't remember his last name right now, but he played the CDC doctor in The Walking Dead) and Helia from Weeds are familiar stars I have seen so far.

Anyway, I watched Season One WAY too fast, because it was one where when one episode ends I could not wait to watch the next. Season Two begins in February.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2149175/

Has anyone checked out AMC's Low Winter Sun that they put on after BB? I started the first episode one night, but I was just in the mood I guess, then I found The Americans. Viewers on IMDB give VERY mixed reviews. Seems you either love it or hate it. There is another star from TWD in this one (Lennie James, who Rick met at the very beginning of Season One, and he later met up with him again, but he was off his rocker: remember him? ??) He is a really good actor:

You got me hooked on The Americans already. I can't wait to watch the next episode when I can get it to load.

I watched the last episode of The Good Wife! Wow! That was the best episode ever. I was on pins and needles. Can't wait for the next episode of it either.

When will Justified be on again? I enjoyed that one too.

The IMDB ratings seem to mirror my own in the few shows I've decided to watch. I always check their ratings before I watch anything new.

I believe Justified comes back in February. I am really looking forward to the next season, too! Smile

The Americans IS an addicting show, isn't it? lol

Glad you liked the latest Good Wife: the show is really changing, but I believe for the better, because it is not always the "same old, same old." This show has come a long way IMHO. Smile

Remember, IMDB is usually a little stingy with ratings, so I would say anything above a six is good and anything above
a seven has a good chance of being very good. Also, keep in mind it is the average of the user reviews. I always
read the synopsis plus a few of the user reviews.

I like Metacritic, too, and of course I adore my Alan Sepinwall blog on Hitfix (I usually like "what Alan is watching"). I also
heard that Rotten Tomatoes is adding TV shows to their site now, as I believe they formerly reviewed movies
only.

But IMDB is usually my quick "go to" place for TV shows and movies, too. Smile

I am checking out the first episode of a BBC Crime Drama (cuz I LOVE LOVE LOVE Luther) called Broadchurch right now after reading about it on Alan's blog. User reviews on IMDB are amazing, too. Great. Just what I need. Another show. lol

The first episode of Broadchurch was decent. Here is what one IMDB user says about the show:

"I enjoy British crime dramas. I find the pacing and depth of characterization is more engaging than the better American shows and there is often more emphasis on "mystery". Meanwhile I find the Americans are more innovative and the plots seldom have the holes that sometimes mar British crime stories. Broadchurch is a marvel. I have never seen a TV drama that explores the emotions of so many characters so convincingly. Crimes are traumatizing. Broadchurch gets this perfectly. Nor have I have ever seen a crime drama that packs a visual punch in so many scenes. The Dorset coast is a character in Broadchurch. It plays its role as effectively as any of the brilliant actors in this piece. And that brings up the acting. You won't find a weak performance and some are unforgettable. There were times when I was reminded of how exciting it was watch Sopranos for the first time. Broadchurch may even have the same kind of influence on future television filmmakers. It transcends comparisons between the US and the UK. It's a new standard and an instant classic."

Synopsis of the show:

The murder of a young boy in a small coastal town brings a media frenzy, which threatens to tear the community apart.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2249364/

I am definitely going to keep watching. And I certainly agree about the authentic acting and breathtaking setting. Alan Sepinwall (where I first heard about this show when reading his opinion of Low Winter Sun) said he was a bit underwhelmed with the first few episodes, but by the end of the season/show, he was "emotionally drained." It takes good TV to do that to us: perfect example is Breaking Bad. I am not sure if Broadchurch is all told in one season (eight episodes, I believe) or if there will be a season two. I will have to read more about that.
