Is this a good place to ask for a recommendation?

I'm looking for a new TV show to watch

I don't really have something I look for
I just watch a couple of episodes and if I like it I just keep watching

Shows I like:

True Blood
Dexter (I still need to watch season 5)
How I Met Your Mother
Entourage

Breaking Bad is really good if you like dramas.
 
Stargate: Atlantis - Eh, what an shitty show, I'm currently on s2 and I really don't know why I keep on watching this shit. Is there any hope of it getting better or am I just waisting my time ? I got the whole series for 30€ but already I feel like I wasted my money :D The characters are just so annoying and/or boring (especially that one guy who visited the OG series, the genius one).
 
Any recommendations?

I've been watching Mythbusters since it started. Recently discovered Penn&Teller Fool Us and The Buried Life. What other shows fall in the same general category of being...nonfiction...and just having a great central premise that's enough to make me want to watch as many episodes of it as they are going to put out.

There's also Brainiac and Men in White and. There was also a show where people show their inventions to a panel of judges hoping for approval

That kind of show is really hard to define.

:(

Using my netflix one month free membership while theres a lul in my summer before Fall classes start and I watched Seasons 1-3 of Pawn Stars and finished 2-4 of 30 Rock. Both great shows. Started to watch Sons of Anarchy but wasn't very interested.. the English guys bad American accent makes me grind my teeth.
 
God help me, I've started watching Vampire Diaries and I actually like it. All the typical emo teen drama aside it's simply a lot of fun and moves at ridiculously fast pace for a tv show. It feels like they've crammed 3 whole seasons into Season 1.

A lot of the quality of the show comes from Damon. He's simply a pure joy to watch. By far the coolest tv vampire ever. Especially since he didn't get castrated out of everything cool the moment he joined the good guys (which is what happened to poor Spike in Buffy)

Don't be ashamed. It is actually a lot better than True Blood. A lot of people that have seen both shows tend to agree.

Rock on.

is there any reason for me to keep going? So far I find it incredibly cheesy and childish.
If you don't like it now you probably won't like it later, though you are the first person I've ever seen watch it and not enjoy it. The end is a real roller coaster ride of action, but I don't think its that different from the beginning.

I just watched episode 1 so far, but i enjoyed it.
There were some cop-show cliches, but hey.

You have to suspend your disbelief to really enjoy the show, as there are implausibilities and over the top moments galore. A realistic, slow-burn cop thriller it ain't. It isn't ashamed to throw all believability or any semblance of subtlety out the window and that's part of what i love about it.
 
Alright.............I watched an episode of 'Akward' on MTV. Didn't know what it was, just saw the name of the show and saw it was labeled a comedy, so I checked it out.

I actually laughed quite a bit. Reminds me a bit of Mean Girls.

I saw the other two episodes(new series apparently) and they were pretty funny, too.

Been a longtime fan of Ghost Hunters but in the past year or so haven't really enjoyed it much. Decided to record Ghost Adventures on the travel channel. My wife and I both enjoy it much more.

Wow, haven't heard this yet since I've been hearing people give there views on Luther. I guess there's a first for everything...

Such as?
 
Thanks for not raging on me about Luther; I appreciate the calm responses as I wasn't trying to troll. Yes, judging from the first 2 episodes, it definitely does require turning off your mind. I guess I was too hyped because of GAF's praise of it as a psychological thriller. I was expecting a much more serious and preferably realistic analysis of the killers, not wacky characters and crazy stunts. I was probably also swayed by Elba's The Wire pedigree, even if I tried not to be. So if the show continues down the same path, it's not for me. Can't watch everything!

Understandable. But would you mind explaining the parts in bold? Thanks.
 
Blew through the BBC Sherlock while traveling. Amazing. I didn't dislike the recent RDJ/Jude Law film from Ritchie, but I thought it was a different Sherlock than I remember reading and I didn't enjoy it as much. The mystery wasn't as much fun, action was overwrought, and the chemistry between Watson and Holmes was only good. This is quite different.
The modern setting is great, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are magnificent, the stories are fantastic, mood is nailed. Everything about it is excellent. Can't wait for it to return.

I really enjoyed Sherlock. I didn't think the modern setting would work, but it totally did. Sherlock obsessively texting makes total sense if you are at all familiar with his character in the books. Glad to see another fan. ;p

Was hoping it'd be late 2011, but I see the wait will be a touch longer. Really looking forward to it.

Yeah, I'm familiar enough with the books (read one of the short story anthologies and Hound of the Baskervilles about 10 years ago) so I really loved seeing it taken to this new time period. I'm excited that
they're doing Hound this season, should be a ton of fun.
