Ive been watching a lot of TV shows lately, partly because I uploaded a load onto my ipod which means that I can easily watch a half hour show over my lunch.
I figured I’d let you know some of the shows that I like and dont like that Ive watched recently.
The Great – Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Jesus Christ – how have I missed this show? I knew of it, but never felt inclined to watch. However Ricky Gervais has been banging on about it for a while on his blog, and has filmed a guest slot for next season so I figured I’d try it. Possibly one of the funniest shows I have ever seen. I’m halfway through season two and its terrific. Larry David plays a version of himself who always says what he thinks. Its a programme where sometimes you can anticipate the mishaps that are about to happen, and makes you cringe sometimes, but that doesnt make it any less funny as usually its even worse than you imagine.
The Bad – Shit My Dad Says
A show based on a twitter feed? Great! Theres a twitter where a guy posts the weird and funny shit that his dad says and it got commissioned into a TV show with William Shatnar as the titular dad. One episode in and its fucking terrible, the kind of absolute dross that Scotsman would watch. Avoid at all costs
The Amazing – Community
Season 2 started this week and holy shit have I missed it. From the opening 17 seconds I was laughing and it didnt stop till the end. Such a absolutely fantastic show that has created its own reality bubble. Its hilarious, with Chevy Chase on top form, and every character holding their own in the episode. Abed is probably my favourite, relating everything that happens to a tv show or film. I cant do this show justice, its probably my favourite show at the moment, I even watched the 1st series 3 times in the last 12 months.
The Good – Sons of Anarchy
Theres been a hole in my life ever since the Shield finished, and Sons has gone some way to filling that gap. The third season is starting a little slow, but this is still a must watch for me and Rach every week now.
More later probably. I got bored of writing
