Allow me to be the contrarian and say don't watch The Shield. Or at least, just watch seasons 1-4 and leave it at that.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

I just didn't get down with the turn the series took in season 5 and it ruined the show for me. The direction they decided to take did not conform with the reasons why I watched the show. This prob sounds way childish, I know. I also realize I'm in a small minority here. Possibly just me.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

I'm currently rewatching...ER. Halfway through season 3 and I'm into the swing of it. Loved it as a teenager but was kinda shocked how soppy and whimsical the first season was. Obviously I'm a big girly man for persevering.

So...question to the floor: series you watched / loved years ago but would hate / never watch now?

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

I used to watch ER several years ago. Enjoyed it until right around the time that Noah Wyle became the main character, although I think that had a lot more to do with the writers running out of ideas than Wyle. The multiple run-ins Paul McCrane had with helicopters was just wtf, and his character in particular went from hard-assed and believable to completely cartoonish in about two seasons.

The most logical answer to your question is most sitcoms. They just aren't that funny. If I watched an episode of say Diff'rent Strokes or Gimme A Break now I wonder if I'd enjoy it at all, but I was growing up and probably pretty easily amused.

D104,

I think the things you are bothered by are places the series intended to go all along.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

Both helicopter incidents on ER were major LOL. The second on especially. I half expected a metal cyborg to arise from the ashes like the Terminator.

The UK Shameless was amazing early on but it went down hill so fast. I think its still going but not sure how the viewing figures are. I gave up years ago.

I agree. For whatever reason, I just wasn't remotely prepared for it and sapped the enjoyment of watching the show for me.

One more thing:

Aggressively incorrect. The Shield has a GOAT ending. Lost's ending is so bad I would never suggest anybody watch even the good parts. Even if Lost maintained it's S1 level of quality, it still wouldn't be as good as The Shield.

I find very little difference between Bud/Miller/Coors Light. If I'm drinking one of them, I'm just drinking fast to get drunk and the differences in taste aren't enough to matter.

As mention- Lost is #1 with a bullet here. The early parts of the show raised some many interesting questions and had so much potential- nearly all of which was wasted.

Sons of Anarchy is another show that I'd avoid watching even though it's good in parts. Just incredibly frustrating and inconsistent.

I think Green Wing is a worthy watch if you have run out of american programs to watch.
