Hey guys, I have been really busy lately and unable to keep up with any shows on TV. I know it is summer here so I am not inside a bunch until late at night, but I am still looking for some new shows to watch. Any suggestions?

I am still working on collecting some of my son's videos. I found some shorts, but I am now trying to find a few examples of his stand up which is harder to find.

Andy Erickson was on the episode of Last Comic Standing on Wednesday night, but I haven't watched yet to see i she made it to the next round or not. She is now selling an album on iTunes so using the show to her benefit. kinda cool

Our Minnesota girl, Andy Erickson just made it through to the TOP TEN in the Last Comic Standing show! She has a blog and is now cutting albums for sale on iTunes, so she is cashing in on her fame. Have to wait until this Wednesday to see if she goes farther, but what an honor to go from the top 100 to the top ten. Really happy for her. 🙂

That made me think of some TV shows that we've been watching - very superficial and often times cringe worthy but disturbingly compelling to watch. My kids 9 and 5 years of age are right into them as well 😀

Officially Amazing - cheesy take on world records, one that comes to mind is a Japanese guy who can crack the most walnuts with his buttocks, now that's something to be proud of!

If You are the One - this is a Chinese dating game show where one guy comes out and lays it on the line while 24 girls get to decide whether they want to date the guy or not. Pretty brutal at times and oh so embarrassing but just can't stop watching.

Total Wipeout - this is an English show, apparently ended in 2012 (we get all the latest entertainment here Down Under!) where contestants pit themselves against a challenging obstacle course - it's a cross between American Ninja Warriors and Funniest Home Videos!

I love watching uncoordinated slobs get poleaxed on Total Wipeout. It never gets old!

Is anyone out there watching Fargo? It is my new FAVORITE TV show! The finale of Season Two is coming up tonight, I believe, although I won't be able to watch until tomorrow or maybe even Tuesday. The penultimate episode was amazingly crazy and fun, and very violent. It is so Coen-esque - they have FARGO down.

Season One was just so amazing as well. Billy Bob Thornton as Lorne Malvo was one of the best roles ever. In fact, all the actors were just amazing amazing amazing! This season is definitely giving Season One a run for its money, actors included.

Is anyone watching Fargo? (And if so, no not all of us Minnesotans talk like that - haha!).

I just couldn't get past the violence in the first few episodes so had to stop watching. Really wanted to like Fargo but just couldn't....getting intolerant and crotchety in my old age 😉 😨

I guess I am the opposite after watching shows like Banshee, The Americans,The Knick, The Walking Dead, and many more shows that just seem to want to up the violence for the shock value, I have become somewhat desensitized. Plus Fargo, to me, is never "violence for the sake of violence" or the shock value, but just a lot of "dark comedy," and part of the story. It was fun to see the references to the movie, and they kept the Cohen Brother feel (No Country for Old Men, anyone? lol) - the artistic aspects of the show and the smart comedy are amazing. I am absolutely in love with this show.

On the other hand, my sons make fun of me, because I can watch violence when it comes to people, but if a show or movie even hints that there will be a scene where an animal is harmed I have to leave the room until it is over and they tell me it is safe to come back. lol

Billy Bob Thornton played one of the best evil persons ever. And I just loved Colin Hanks and the actress who played Molly, Keith Carradine - the entire crew. And Season Two was different but just as amazing. I can't wait to see what is in store for season two, but I will have to wait a while.

To the person who suggested Peaky Blinders, yes. YAS. I'm waiting anxiously for season 3 to be available on Netflix.
I also like animated shows with dark humor. If you liked Archer, you should try
Bojack Horseman and
F is for Family

If you like suspenseful crime dramas then check out The Fall. It is a show set in Belfast about a serial killer, with the woman from the X-Files the lead investigator trying to track the guy down. It is not your usual crime show where you don't know who the killer is though - you know right from the start and much of the show is set around his life and what he does. Its very interesting though pretty scary as it is all so real.

Is anyone watching American Crime Story - The People vs. O.J. Simpson that is based on a book? I started watching, and besides trying to get over the fact that O.J. is played by Cuba Gooding Junior, which doesn't doesn't work for a lot of people, including me. I really like Sara Paulsen's performance as Marcia Clark. I think she is perfect in this part.

Just curious if anyone else is watching.

Hahha no that is no more than you would find out by watching the first episode!

I saw an ad for the O.J. show but I can't say I have watched it. I think it might annoy me to see an obviously guilty guy literally getting away with murder.

Too funny. Good old Southpark, lol.

We do all know the story, but it is interesting to see how it all unfolded. Back then, I didn't pay attention to many details or understand who all the players were. I have really been into true crime documentaries, and although this is dramatized, much of what they are showing truly did happen.

I feel so bad for Nicole's family and especially Ron Goldman's family, because with all the nation's attention on O.J., the victims received little no attention. And I know the show is probably dredging up the same (and the book before it). With all the sensationalism "they" say the O.J. trial being televised, beginning with the Bronco chase down the freeway was the start of reality television.

At least he is in prison, but he should be in prison for two murders, IMO.

I am an absolute geek of tv shows so I loved to find out about this thread. Recently I've been obsessed with Mob Wives, it has everything- drama, passion, humour, a good time is guaranteed. Also I love Girls, Game of Thrones, Mad Men, The Walking Dead, I was totally obsessed with House of Cards show. An old goodie is Six Feet Under and Dexter. Those are my favorites.

Lately we've been obsessed with good reality tv shows, we were really sad when we finished Mob wives and now we are at 3rd season of Breaking Amish, so interesting, so much drama.

Haven't seen Mob wives or Breaking Amish....will have to look them up.

I've seen some Asian TV shows in my time, especially ones out of HK. They are so melodramatic but definitely suck you in. They are very much like the western soap operas but slightly better and more gritty storylines.

I've always been a sucker for MasterChef Australia, I think it would be classified as reality TV or possibly more game show? But I love the drama of it all and the pressure these people willingly put themselves under just to win some cash and get into the food industry....they all claim they want to run their own restaurants but in the end most winners go on to some role in the media.

The things the contestants produce with in a 30 minute or an hour challenge is just incredible, especially as they are just home cooks with no professional experience.

I have been always fascinated by a show called "ancient aliens". Got me always thinking sometimes. I have been an alien fan since 4 years old. Maybe thats why . 🤷

You definitely should try them, we just finished them and they were full of unexpected drama, really great shows.

I absolutely loved the first season! The actors were great and yes it was creepy but sooo good! Loved the music too. But I stopped watching second season, I don't know but some of the actors really bothered me.

I know what you mean. I was super keen and I watched the first 2 episodes but that was the beginning of last week and I have not been back yet. It just hasn't grabbed me like the first season. I'll still give it a chance though and see where it goes.

Has anyone else watched Bloodline on Netflix? It is a made for Netflix Crime/Drama that I really enjoy! I wasn't sure how they could top Season One, but Season Two was recently released, and I have already watched and it just gets better. Season Two moves way faster than Season One, and it is one of those shows that cries out for binge watching, because you just have to see what happens in the next episode. I tried to take my time with it, but before I knew it, it was over. I simply could not help myself. lol If you need a good show for rainy summer days or extra time at the cabin, this one is awesome!

A few other notes is that the acting is stellar, and I love the setting, which is the Florida Keys.

Another Netflix show that comes to mind is a British show called Happy Valley. This is another crime story, and I really like the female lead detective/actress.

If you are a TV addict like I am, and you enjoy suspense, check out these two shows! 🙂

I have heard many things about the Bloodline show but never actually tried it. Maybe I will.

Also we recently finished watching The Path. It is a really interesting show about a cult and how the ubelievers are treated, really fascinating.
