What is the last Television series you watched?

Halfway through the penultimate season of The Office, the one which the fan consensus seems to agree was where the whole thing nosedived. But we are still loving it. Michael is long gone but this is still just so eminently watchable and often hilarious. Michael Scott WAS Dunder Mifflin, but the the rest of this wonderful and sprawling cast altogether assuredly very much still make up The Office. I'm going to be absolutely gutted once it's finished.

 

Out of interest, are there any US members here who don't actually like this show? Just curious.

Hello, IT.  Have you tried turning it off and back on again?

The good place, final episode. Well, as I once said to John Williams when I was teaching him to write film music, I’m glad it’s over. It really lasted too long. I can’t exactly say when it should have ended for me, but a turning point was Michael suddenly becoming a good guy. The Janets quickly started to irritate me too and Shawn had been great if they hadn’t overused him. I was kind of hoping for a final twist at the very end that the whole thing was the ultimate test and that everyone could finally go to the good place, but it was not to be. Time for another series.

If Michael was a villain the whole time that would have been a terrible show!

The original is so much better!

 

I've seen it twice and I'm sure a third time will follow. My son didn't like it though, not the UK or the US edition. Then again, he likes Friends, so that explains it all. ;)

The Plot Against America

 

Zzzzzz!

 

Hmm, maybe I should check it out now! You fall asleep with all my favorite things.

Binged War of the Worlds. Its a European construct. Still have 2 episodes to go but it is dismal and bleak. I wish I could tell the writer how stupid he is. Really Aliens in doggie automatons filled with alien flesh similar to bacon

I'm taking advantage of the free month CBS All Access is giving to watch Picard.  I watched the first episode tonight, gotta listen to some podcasts about it before I move on.

Rick and Morty.  It's... weird.  I'm not sure why it's so polarizing...  It's not bad; it's not ground-breaking or great.  It's just an above-average Adult Swim-style show that has mostly stupid humor but fairly clever storytelling.  I have to say I'm looking forward to the future of the show, though.  Being guaranteed 70 additional episodes could give them a lot of flexibility that other (probably more deserving) shows never got.  Now if only Brockmire got that long a rope.

So I've been watching The Walking Dead lately and finished Season 1 and just started Season 2. Now, big question, does a real story/plot ever emerge on this show or is it just survival stuff? Because if it's the latter, I'm going to lose my patience really quick.

Yes, it is pretty universally agreed that the show gets worse and worse as the years go on.  Also it's been renewed through season 12 so you have a long road ahead if you want to slog through it all

Everyone has different tastes in what they want out of a television show

Yeesh. My friend who pressured me into watching it insists it's mind-bogglingly unparalleled prestige TV. Maybe I need new friends?

 

You mean he said it's up there with The Wire, The Sopranos, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Deadwood, etc? If so, tell him you can't be friends anymore.

Neh fuck it, I flicked it off and now I'm watching The Golden Girls instead.

Oh sure, but jeez, talk about overselling something.

 

People really put it up there in its early seasons. Was a very trendy thing to do at the time, but even time, I never understood the hype.

 

I'm surprised the show is still going on. I thought they wrapped it up some time ago.

Not only is it still going, but there are like 3 spin-off shows too.
