So... yeah... I like to have the Television on when I'm working. I've become particularly fond of Downton Abbey and Breaking Bad.

Does anyone else watch these shows? What do you like?

I enjoyed Downton Abbey the first 2 or was it 3 seasons? But was not in the mood to watch the latest season due to family events.

Haven't seen Breaking Bad.

Homeland. The first 2 seasons of that show are absolutely gripping. It's some of the best TV that I've ever seen. If you haven't watched it, I would highly recommend it.

I've seen this listed on Amazon Prime and I've thought about watching it because I really liked the books and all related movies. I stayed away because I thought it looked rather dark and I have to be in the right mood to watch that kind of thing.

I've enjoyed house of cards quite thoroughly-the second season quite well lived up to the first.

It is dark but in a good way. Its a tiny bit visually morbid but not overly violent. The darkest part I think is how ridiculously good Mads portrays Hannibal. It really shows you the inner-workings of a sociopathic mind. The relationship he has with the Empath is just phenomenal. Watch it.

As someone that read The Walking Dead comic, the TV show was an enormous disappointment; not only were there drastic changes to the story, content, and characters, but it clearly detracted Kirkman's attentions away from the comic. Readers basically had a few years of delays and pointless content until Fear The Hunters (which was lame) and the Alexandria Safe Zone (which is when I stopped reading).

Also, Big Bang Theory is awful and you all should feel awful.

You all make me feel like I'm actually ten years old. The only television shows I ever watch anymore are cartoons. I used to watch the hell out of the History Channel, but... yeah.

- Amazing World of Gumball
- Space Dandy
- Steven Universe
- Gravity Falls
- Ed, Edd & Eddy
- Flapjack
- Anything with Thurop Van Orman involved
- Anything with Genndy Tartakovsky

I like what I've seen of Downton Abbey, but I don't watch it regularly. I liked Homeland's first season or so but I haven't been following it and it's gotten a little too convoluted for my tastes. There are also a ton of CN Europe shows that I have to pirate to watch.

There are also a myriad of French cartoons and animations that are phenomenal. I could go on about why the French are terrible, but their street food and cartoonists/animators are amazing.
