Tv


Alright guys so like any good American I love tv shows. Here is a list of some of my current favorite shows. They range from old to new. I personally go through cycles of what I like to watch and right now these are the ones that I'm really into.

1. Parks and Recreation- Starring Amy Poehler this show is in the same style of the office as a mockumentary. The reason I feel its stronger is that it can be more varied and open because its not contained to a small workplace. As well it has Rashida Jones :) oh and Aziz Ansari. Thursdays NBC

2. The IT crowd- This is probably my favorite show at the moment. Its about a small IT department in a large corporation with a boss who knows nothing about computers. It has a lot of geeky humor and is full of fresh comedic situations, which is hard to find in television these days. If your looking for a good workplace show to replace the office once Steve Carrell leaves this show might just be your cup of tea. Channel4 UK

3. Curb your Enthusiasm- Do you like Seinfeld? Do you have HBO? If you answered yes to both of these questions then you should be watching this show. Larry David ( the creator of Seinfeld) stars in this show as himself and the show is about his wacky life. One of the great things about  Curb your Enthusiasm is that it is basically unscripted. Basically Larry David and the other writers have a central narrative and at each scene dialogue is made up. It has the effect of making the show seem real and lends to the comedy as sometimes the characters cant help but laugh on the show. HBO

4. Spaced- Although this show is about 10 years old I just cant get enough of it and I felt it deserved a shout out. Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) stars in this show about two friends who pretend to be a couple so they can rent a flat. This might sound kind of boring but honestly this show rules. It has such nerdy jokes and references to so many things I love, like Star Wars and Battle Bots, that I think I would have to really try not to like it. Give it a shot if you thought Shaun of the Dead was any good. BBC

5. Eastbound and Down- Danny Mcbride stars as Kenny motherfucking Powers, a washed up foul talking ex-professional pitcher. The show chronicles his ride back to stardom and all the sex, drugs and ridiculousness along the way. This is one of those shows that makes you laugh out loud every episode, seriously give it a chance. HBO

6. Dexter- My absolute favorite drama on television right now. In a nutshell Dexter is about a serial killer that kills serial killers. The show is dark, the writing and acting are good and oh did I mention the show has a ton of hot actresses. Yeah thats right you need to watch this. Showtime


Honorable mentions: Its always Sunny in Philadelphia, the Office, American Pickers

Cheers

  36. Oh shit, I remember I saw Curb your Enthusiasm once and I really liked it, I didn't even know what it was called until now. My friend kept asking me to watch it but I never did, because let's be honest, it doesn't sound good.

    I'm gonna have to start watching it, thanks for this!
