favorite tv shows......

what are your favorite tv shows that ended before you even began to appreciate them..............or just fav tv shows.



ha..well, for me:

practically every series on HBO besides sex and the city. so:

entourage (especially earlier seasons)
deadwood
the sopranos
THE FUCKING WIRE (best show currently on television)
mr. show

and few that weren't on HBO:

freaks & geeks (only one season long but ridiculously entertaining. do whatever you can to get a copy of this show)
upright citzens brigade
futurama
wondershowzen
pee-wees playhouse
ren & stimpy

that about does 'er.

(of course the simpsons, but they go without mentioning. and south park)

Mr. Show, South Park, Futurama, The Simpsons, The Singing Detective. That last one shits all over every other TV show, ever. Especially your favorite one. I see I forgot Twin Peaks. That ruled too.

I guess I watch some Venture Bros. these days too. Not having a TV makes it hard for me to watch much. I don't mean that logistically, since I could go to any number of peoples' houses and watch their TVs. I mean that, when I do see a TV show, it's immediately apparent how much damage it's going to do to me to watch it. So I don't.

PST, I would agree with you, except there are some television shows worth your time.......THE WIRE. seriously, it is amazing.

twin peaks.......well i was too young to fully appreciate it when the show first came on. i remember it being really fuckin weird, though.

I keep hearing hype for the Wire, but I don't buy it. I'm not too impressed by HBO's programming; it's above-average TV, but since TV has become a very dumb medium, a 'good' TV show is something like a 'gorgeous' gnat; I haven't seen one and wonder at the people who claim to have done so.

There are some exceptions: The Simpsons, Futurama, and South Park were all part of growing up, and Trey and Matt are masters of satire and of spinning a 30-minute narrative. Lynch tried to break through the medium's limitations by making a show that went as far as possible without anything happening, but because TV audiences want simplicity and clarity, and he couldn't really write and direct it all himself, he lost out to the medium. Still a good show.

The Singing Detective is tops because it takes a TV show's great strength - that it can build up hour upon hour of stuff - and actually uses it, here by building new layers of ambiguity with each episode, rather than doing the usual bit of establishing a pattern and then sticking to it, rewarding those who want some more of the familiar. It effectively showed what a TV show could do if the people behind it were smart enough and the money behind it backed off.

So far this hasn't happened again. HBO shows, and now one or two on most network, ape movies without being willing to deliver the same type of complexity. But The Wire has a good idea at core, so I guess I'll check it out.
