Ok, so I'm big on downloading TV shows and watching them without ads and stuff. I'm currently watching Futurama, True Blood and Breaking Bad but I want something else. So please recommend your favourite show and give a brief run-down of it. I want to add one more show to the roster.

Death Note is the best anime.
Its about making you question who the good guy is and other stuff. Makes you think a little.

Also house is good about a sarcasticly awesome doctor.

Scrubs is a funny doctor show, more about social then being a doctor.

Also like South Park, and Family guy, but everyone knows them.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly.

Of those three you NEED to watch Buffy and Firefly.

Of those two you NEED to watch Firefly.

Ask me anything about these shows.

Yes, pretty freaking awesome. Too bad Spartacus (the actor) has cancer.

24 is about a b@d@ss counter terrorist agent Jack Bauer, played by Kiefer Sutherland (who has won several emmys for his role, and the show has won a bunch more). Each season is 24 episodes covering the events of 1 day. Each episode is an hour long (with ads) and events occur in real time.

If you like Glee, I definitely recommend Nip/Tuck, which Ryan Murphy also created and wrote.

It's not a ha-ha show, but it's not corny or cheesy either... it's dark but genuine.

There is Sliders. A tv show about these four people sliding to different worlds with different realities. I would stay away from season 5, I hear it is awful.

This is semi-serious btw. It's something that seems strange to me. You'd think that entire species would cease to exist if other ones evolved from them."

While I only caught the season finale of last season while perusing the channels one time, I would agree. It was pretty freaking awesome. Hot chicks and boobs are aplenty as well. I think I'll try to watch it this season. I'm not a big TV guy though, so I will probably fail after the first or second episode. Anyone know when the new season starts?

Ask me anything about these shows.

I recently watch all seven seasons of Buffy over the course of a few months. Season 4 was a bit sh!t, but otherwise it was pretty good. How they brought Dawn into it was actually cleverer than I thought it would be.
Number 1 LOL moment: Buffy is invisible in season 6.
Xander goes looking for Spike and finds him 'doing pushups' naked in his bed.
"What are you doing?"
"What does it look like I'm doing? I'm exercising you idiot."

I've decided to download Sparticus episode one, two and three and see if it captures my interest.
Keep the suggestions coming people.

Currently, i am enjoying watching Eureka, which is a great series, damn funny and great story. Its about a town built specifically for Geniuses. Warehouse 13 is also okay, but not as great.

V, Visitors, is actually a pretty damn good series too, although a bit slow to start. Used to watch House, but lately the storyline is getting a tad bit boring. Im watching Flashpoint, too, but its a hit or miss for that show for most people.

For the older shows, i would DEFINATELy recommend the following:
X-files, the first few seasons.
Just Shoot me, pretty damn funny comedy show.
The Sopranos
Heroes, but it gets a bit boring after the first 2 seasons
Frasier, damn funny, i still watch it from time to time.
Battlestar Galactica, all 4 seasons were pretty amazing
Star trek DS9, by far my fav of all the star trek shows.
Used to watch Regenesis, it is good, but its a hit or miss for people who dont like Science shows.
Law and order, law and order SVU, both are damn good, but i liked Law and Order better when Jerry Orbach was still alive and Sam Waterston was still a District attorney
Dexter. Goddamn good.

I have every single episode ever made of every single series i posted. But yeah.

These two are good, I'm also not a huge fan of 13 but it's decent.

V, Visitors, is actually a pretty damn good series too,

Yes, I would also reccomend watching the original MINISERIES. The original show sucked.

Just Shoot me, pretty damn funny comedy show.

Agreed

Heroes, but it gets a bit boring after the first 2 seasons

Season 2 wasn't all that great. It's the reason that the show got bad. Stupid writer's strike.

Frasier, damn funny, i still watch it from time to time.

Agreed

Battlestar Galactica, all 4 seasons were pretty amazing

If you get any on the list get this one or Dexter.

Dexter. Goddamn good.

Yes.

I liked House better when they had the original team. I suppose it cant be helped, but the witty jokes of House are starting to become a bit tale.

I never watched the original. The first episode i watched was actually the 12th and last one, and although i didnt understand much of it, it was still pretty good, specially the scene where Joshua and Chad confront each other behind the force field.

Season 2 wasn't all that great. It's the reason that the show got bad. Stupid writer's strike.
Well, i could still sorta keep up during season 2, but then they started some really stupid plot sequences, and i sort lost interest.

If you get any on the list get this one or Dexter.
Quite a few people are hit or miss on BSG, though. Not to mention, theres alot of sexual inuendo, which is why i could never watch it with a straight face. But it was funny when Baltar was jacking off and Starbuck waked in on him xD
