TV Shows: What are you watching?

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Halt & Catch Fire is off to a pretty good start...AMC's new Breaking Bad. Like a Bill Gates meets Mad Men 80's criminal drama :thumbs:

I'n enjoying this season of Louis.

Nothing like relaxing on the cot with a Hell's Gate after three gruelling reps of pullups, turning on the ole telly and there's Louis.

I can't believe I didn't watch The Shield before now on Netflix. Halfway through season 3 and the show is outstanding. It has been off the air for 6 years. :wow:

I've been rewatching The Thick of It lately, great show. Anyone watch the US version, Veep? On HBO I think. Is it worth the time?

I like Veep a lot.

But I'm a huge Louis-Dreyfuss fan.

Real solid comedic actress.

Then there's the billions she has coming to her when Daddy kicks it.

Thats when lever makes his move.

Look out Brad Hall.

Just finished the first 2 season of "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret" - one of the better comedies I've watched in a while. (Netflix streaming)

My sides...

I also love the episode they did with "Clovis" in California.

Personally my favorite new comedy is Silicon Valley (from Mike Judge). That's a must watch for anyone in software development. It's no surprise that it came from the same guy responsible for "Office Space".

It's a little old, and relatively unheard of, but I recently started watching "Whites" which was a 6 episode series put out in 2010 on the BBC.

Every time I look out my window, same three dogs looking back at me.

White may be the closest I've seen to a real kitchen. too bad it never lasted.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Silicon Valley is truly a blast. Best thing since The IT Crowd.

I quite like Orphan Black. Only seen the first season though.

I felt the same way.

I found it hard to believe that Christopher Evan Welch didn't actually have a spectrum disorder of some sort, he played it so well.
