Cult TV : Best current show?

Best current show?

Go on then.

For moi it's definately Battlestar Galactica.

It's fun to ruffle feathers

Re: Best current show?

Supernatural and the current season of Dr Who.

I warn you. I'm armed to the teeth with a deadly arsenal of crap one-liners

Re: Best current show?


Supernatural and the current season of Dr Who.


Yes!! Supernatural is absolutely excellent. The new Dr.Who is pretty good too, but still a bit inconsistant. The next season should be much better since Russell "hand of sh!t" T.Davies won't be writing it any more. Watched the season finale last night and enjoyed it immensely.

Opinions are like ar$eholes... Everyones got one and some of them stink.

Re: Best current show?

There were some good ones on, but most have been cancelled.

I like The Big Bang Theory

Burn Notice

Re: Best current show?

To answer your question I'll have to submit a top five, since I can't pick just one:

'Dexter' - the best... they actually make you root for a serial killer
'30 Rock' - continues to be the funniest show on t.v.
'Ugly Betty' - brilliantly cheesy soap opera. Fun to watch.
'Damages' - incredible first season! Can they do it again??
'Mad Men' - very well done... can't wait to see where the story goes from here.

Honorable Mention:
Heroes (sophomore blues)
Boston Legal (guilty pleasure)
Pushing Daisies (very well done)
Weeds (funny, but drags)
In Treatment (me likey... interesting)


I don't watch 'The Office' because the U.K. version was much better and I couldn't get over the comparisons in season 1 (I might make more of an effort today).

'Two and a Half Men' is sophomoric, only funny as H.S. locker-room humor.

Enjoying 'Californication' and, of course, 'Entourage'.
Missing like mad.. "Deadwood", "Rome", "The Wire" and "Sopranos" (HBO found it necessary to break my heart and then cut it out and stump it into the dust and then set the dust on fire.)
Hoping good things for "Swingtown", "Fear Itself", "Breaking Bad"
NBC Execs FUBAR'd on "Life" & "Journey Man" -- should've let them find an audience.
Can't wait for the return of "Big Love" and the final season of "The Shield".

Re: Best current show?

i think hbo has slowly lost it's *beep* mind over the last 3 years...cancel "deadwood" for "john from cincinnati", which i refused to watch on prinicple. i loved the "sopranos" but can't really fault them after 7 seasons, however that should of freed up enough money to pay "the wire" whatever it took to keep it going. and where are the 3 two-hour movies we were promised to wrap up "deadwood"??
and they cancel "inside the nfl"?
i hate them.
and i hope the don't *beep* up "entourage" and "big love". although both are good they hardly make up for what we've lost on hbo.

Re: Best current show?

Well, its been almost two yrs since my original post on this thread and it was interesting reading my own take on these series-- at that time.

"Dexter" seemed to drag in the 4th season even with the great acting of John Lithgow. IMO it's missing the drama of discovery from inside the police department that was written so beautifully in seasons 1 & 2 when "Sgt. Dokes" was breathing down Dexter's neck.

"30 Rock" still the best comedy on TV!

I still enjoy "Ugly Betty" but it seems as if I'm the only one (LOL). It's certainly not as good/fresh as the first seasons but it still has some truly funny moments. They've lost a huge portion of their audience and are being canceled.

"Mad Men" going through ups and downs these past two seasons... it drags, then gets to pace, then drags again. But I'm still a fan.

"Damages" still going strong and is one of -- if not THE -- best drama on tv as of now (in mid-third season).

I wait anxiously for yet another season of "In Treatment"! Great stories and acting. Easily one of the top five dramas on TV today.

"Big Love" took a huge dive in story quality in season 4 and has become a joke IMO (hopefully, only temporarily).

"Breaking Bad" has done nothing but improve and "Californication" is still very good -- two of my favorite series.

"Heroes" never pulled out of sophomore blues -- truly disappointing how bad it became considering how many interesting characters and storylines that could have been created. I don't bother to watch it anymore.

"Swingtown" and "Fear Itself" were canceled (too) quickly.

The final season of "the Shield" didn't disappoint (well, not too much) and had a conclusion that I wouldn't have chosen myself, but was somewhat satisfying nonetheless.

"Boston Legal" was guilty pleasure to the end
So long, "Pushing Daisies", it was nice while it lasted.
"Weeds" is now a guilty pleasure, not as good as it once was, but I still like it -- kinda.

And finally, "Two and a Half Men" is still sophomoric humor, but I've grown to enjoy it in syndication.

Re: Best current show?

The only show that I watch that isn't reality, is DEXTER. love that show, Julie Benz is smokin'.

I watch a lot of reality-like shows though, like Unsolved Mysteries, Supernanny, Wife Swap, the Girls next Door, Chelsea Lately..etc.

what would Buffy do?

Re: Best current show?

I am renting Supernatural from Netflix and I really like it.

Re: Best current show?

I feel reality TV is a curse put upon mankind.
If you watch it, then you are feeding the evil
beast. I won't talk to people that watch it.

1. OP, Battlestar Galactica is numero 1.
2. Lost
3. Simpsons
4. Family Guy
5. South Park.
6. The Shield.
7. The Office

That's it, I can't think of anything else. The
rest sucks as far as I'm concerned.

Re: Best current show?

Battlestar Galactica. Most definitely. There are no Kate's or Charlie's on BSG. All the main characters are good, well-acted, well-written, and serve a purpose.

The stiffening of your penis is of no consequence!

Re: Best current show?

I would have said Lost if it wasn't for that dreadful 4th season.

Instead I'll go with Bones closely followed by Boston Legal and Special Victims unit.

~Someone should stab you in the eye with a really hot french fry ~

Re: Best current show?

BSG, easily, followed by Damages (the trailers for the second season are phenomenal), Lost, and Supernatural.

I still watch Heroes too, but that's more the "stopping to watch a train wreck" type of show than anything else at this point.

Good morning, good morning, everybody, in the news this morning, good morning.

Re: Best current show?

Battlestar Galactica by an enormous margin. Enormous margin!
Runners up?
Charlie Brooker's Screen Burn
True Blood
And the Holy Trinity of cartoons: Family Guy, Simpsons, South Park.

Re: Best current show?

Re: Best current show?

One word:

SUPERNATURAL

This is by far, the best "cult" TV show on broadcast channels right now, due mostly to the acting of the two leads, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki. These two guys can run the gamut of emotions, sometimes in a single episode, and take you right along for the ride. Their acting talent is nothing short of phenomenal, and it irritates the *beep* out of me that they,and others like them, are consistantly ignored by "awards" shows like the Emmys!

Ok, I'll get down off my soapbox now.....


Non timebo mala

Re: Best current show?

Lost
Dexter
Mad Men
Battlestar Galactica
30 Rock

And if it counts, even though ABC has announced they won't be ordering more episodes, Pushing Daisies.

The quick and witty dialog of "Pushing Daisies" was so much fun. I'll miss it.

Re: Best current show?

1. Always Sunny (trying to be patient for the next season)

2. Reaper
3. 30 Rock
4. Supernatural

SN is number four cause I'm not really into the myth-arc lately, but that last episode (Winchester books!) was even funnier than anything the other three shows have done in a while.

Lost
Law & Order

Re: Best current show?

Community. That show is pure genius and will be forever remembered by the Abeds of the future as the television gem is it. I don't know what is the definition of a cult or successful or popular TV show, but when it makes a claymation-animated Christmas episode, a zombie apocalypse episode and a trilogy of FÃœCKING PAINTBALL WAR episodes, for me it automatically enters every definition possible, and even some definitions still not invented !! It's the best thing since sliced bread. And Arrested Development.

I am also a fan of The Big Bang Theory, Doctor Who and Criminal Minds.

Re: Best current show?

Have to agree with you about Community and Doctor Who. I believe its the best comedy in the last 10 years without question.

In the kingdom of the blind, you're the village idiot.

Re: Best current show?

I say Eastbound And Down And Breaking Bad and lastly The Walking Dead

Re: Best current show?

Up to date (December 27th 2011) it's Game of Thrones, no doubt.

(But I agree with the OP about the best TV show when this thread started - go BSG!)

Re: Best current show?

My favorite comedies are Community, Futurama Venture Bros. and Bob's Burgers. Dramas would be Breaking Bad and Shameless (US). South Park has been pretty good, though some of the recent stuff hasn't been so great.

Re: Best current show?

Game of Thrones
