best TV shows?

This maybe has been asked before..

Let's say I'd been living under a rock or on another planet for the last, oh, 3 years or so (not too unbelievable, lol) and I haven't been watching much if any TV at all (save CSI: Miami, the Daily Show and basketball/hockey games)

What shows are 'must sees' for me to torrent and watch? I've started on the first 6 episodes of The Terminator, can't wait to watch those...

about Battlestar Galactica, cause I know ppl will likely mention it: if I disliked the more recent Star Trek series, ie, most anything after Picard, will also I dislike BSG? or is it completelydifferent?


thanks if you can help..

BSG is different than the recent Star Treks. Darker. Each season has an arc to it. It's well done.

The Wire is a show I think you should take a peek at. Slow start, but, once you see a few episodes, you're usually hooked. Each episode is like a chapter to a novel. I highly recommend it. They are on their 5th and final season on HBO currently.

I'll also recommend Mad Men on AMC. Just catching up with this one, but it is extremely well written and the lead actor is fantastic.

If you haven't seen it already: Arrested Development.

Failure to watch could cause a seal to bite off your hand.

Oh shit, if we did that, American Idol would be the best TV show right now.

The only reasons I watch Idol are to make fun of the people auditioning in the first few weeks or to make fun of Paula Abdul who constantly looks like she's on drugs.

Warning: Don't watch Paula in HD! Her face is like 4 different colors. Yuck!

Ah yes The Wire. Heard alot about it, people who know me well say I'd enjoy it alot..but I havent seen even one episode...holy crap, 5 seasons, that's gonna be a huge undertaking, downloading 5 seasons worth of episodes...unless I can get them 'whole' so to speak..

Thanks for the recommendation!

No, you're right, that's Malcolm In The Middle. AR is about the most incredibly dysfunctional family and all the hilarity that goes along with it...

Each season is only 13 episodes, and season 5 will be just 10.

And, yes, stupid me for assuming you'd seen Arrested Development. It's the best comedy since Seinfeld, possibly better. INMYOPINIONALLCAPSVERSION

The Office is also a great comedy. Specifically the second season.

"Desperate Housewives" is another favorite of mine. It's much better if you rent/buy the DVDs and watch it from the beginning. I suppose that's true for every show here, but it's necessary for this one. Don't believe the hype that it's only for women. I know quite a few guys who watch and enjoy it.

I'm sortof forced to watch bits and pieces of it..I don't like it, to be honest. There is another one (pretty sure its not the same one) where they all have some 'cancel lunch - meet now' text message thing going and I find that one super annoying too..
