For better or for worse, I've watched a lot of television through rthe years. In days gone by it was something to do to pass the rtimes and in recent times, it helps keep me grounded as I have rthe ability to dissolve into a screen and throw my brain on a rmantle for a while. As much as it's difficult to recommend you rthrow away hours upon hours of your life just to live inside a rtelevised box for a little while, here's 28 places I've been that rhave helped me relate to those around me and made me smile ralong the way rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
|1|| ||The Troggs|
Wild Thing (song)
30 Rock - Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey have incredible chemistry here.
Working for NBC Universal makes me imagine deeper I'm involved in the
shenanigans of this televised series
The Best of Chuck Berry
3rd Rock from the Sun - Recently jumped back in and what's great is how
uncomplicated and naive the characters are. Never being left on a
cliffhanger, this was a time when television wasn't about getting you
hooked on the next episode but was just for enjoying the simplicity of
what's in front of us.
|3||Mumford & Sons|
Sigh No More
Arrested Development - lol gob lol buster lol tobias lol show
Battlestar Galactica - as much as i smile when i see the poster in the
hallways at work (it was a good series), it isn't the be all and end all of
shows. it's very specific and paints some
Breaking Bad - This only really clicked for me when I realized how intense
things were. I have thankfully lived a sheltered enough existence to not
have gotten to know any meth heads, but i can't help but part of this
|6||Red Hot Chili Peppers|
Blood Sugar Sex Magik
Californication - a chill laid back show with all the right chemicals. light
hearted and simple but intelligent (ps bssm > californication)
Community - A show that makes you go aww so many times per episode
it's incredible. Very strong and different characters balance these incredible
half hour television shows
The Number Of the Beast
*Daria - I just finished the final episode of the 5th and final season and can
say that this is one of the greatest series I've ever watched. A high
schooler moves through development as an incredibly intelligent outsider,
an observer of all that goes on in high school as it's actually happening. It
is advanced in that it isn't suspended in time like most cartoons but helps
make you live or relive the pains of growing up.
Madman Across the Water
Dexter - twisted. And we can all relate
|10|| ||The Trashmen|
Family Guy - maybe a bit of a Simpsons rip off but also pretty awesome
|11|| ||The Rembrandts|
I'll Be There for You (song)
Friends - Was surpirsed this show was popular in Germany as well as the
states. More people should try this simple formula -- put 6 genuinely
lovable 20 somethings together and you got yourselves a show.
In The Wee Small Hours
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - hilarious satire on the modern american
group of friends.
Lost - dragged a bit at times, but when it's on oh my god it's on. Providing
some of the best (as well as sometimes the most boring) telivision I've ever
Let It Be
Modern Family - cutesy family style gimmick. and i'm still addicted
Prison Break - very little momentum at the end, but seasons 1 and 2
present a fascinating look inside the face of selfless desperation and an
incredible person in Michael Scofield and a barrage of brilliant criminals.
|16||The Lonely Island|
Seinfeld - it just tickles your funny bone and you don't quite realize how or
South Park - incredible telivision. very intelligent and incredibly vulgar. win
Random Album Title
Summer Heights High - Australian miniseries that is so ridiculous that it's
Led Zeppelin IV
That '70s Show - hehe. they smoke pot. hehe
That '80s Show - yea, i just watched all 10 of them recently and they're
actually rather funny. Dennis from Always Sunny is the lead.
The Big Bang Theory - I don't know why, but I weirdly look forward to this
as much if not more than any other show all week. Yea, I'm a huge nerd irl.
|22|| ||Red Hot Chili Peppers|
The League - After watching this, i started paying attention to my fantasy
teams. Loose connections sometimes mean a whole heck of a lot. Reminds
us to always enjoy the little things
The Office - simple, subtle, funny, offensive. Good for all environments, and
Andy Bernard (Ed Helms) has really come into his own as a result of this
The Simpsons - one of the most innovative and consistently poignant and
interesting, yet with such a simple surface. An old favorite
|25||The Future Sound of London|
*The Wire - Incredibly realistic, intense and containing a whole lot of
restraint. This is the most well executed show I've ever seen.
Twin Peaks - Crazy director, crazy series. Agent Dale Cooper likes coffee,
David Lynch is a genius, etc etc
|27||The Flaming Lips|
Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
Weeds - Lost it's mojo a bit after a while, but the first few seasons were
incredible portrayals of suburban life gone amok that asks you whether you
are better off as a suburbanite or an outsider.
