    I'm wondering what are some good scripted TV shows to watch.

    I realize that this is subjective, but here are some that I have already tried:

    Watching/Completed
    The Shield
    Dexter
    Weeds
    Burn Notice
    The Office (UK)

    Sliding interest
    Lost (dragging on and too many filler episodes)
    Heroes (plot line changes every two episodes and lacks a consistent direction/character development)

    Tried but didn't like (cheesy or not my taste)
    Dr. Who
    Torchwood
    Dead Like Me
    24 (after season 2, gave up)

    The Office is a great show.
    If you are considering a comedy show, I definitely recommend it.

    I've watched the British version, guessing you are talking about the US "The Office" show. I'll check it out. Thanks and keep the suggestions coming.

    Try watching Pushing Daisies, even though they stopped doing episodes, I still recommend to watch. [​IMG]
    And try watching the early episodes of House. (The latest ones are really mucked up and dead) .
    Yeh, my suggestions. [​IMG]

    I am either on Nick @ Nite or Discovery. Would reccomend George Lopez, Fresh Prince, and Home Improvement for Nick @ Nite, and for discovery, I can't really pick out shows, as it would be pretty long. I can turn their and watch pretty much any show that is on.

    Kenny Vs. Spenny - one of my favourites, and all the episodes can be found online.

    If you can't lower yourself to enjoy the fundamentals, then I'd be ashamed to call you human.

    I'd recommend HBO's True Blood.

    Oh yeah! Futurama is awesome! Also, The Big Bang Theory is pretty good... my dad got me hooked on it.

    This season I only watched Californication and True Blood, both were soso, but not bad. Stopped watching Heroes after it became clear in episode two of season three that they'll never manage to bring this clusterfuck of a show back to season one levels.

    Heard good things about Sons of Anarchy and Generation Kill (a mini series by the makers of "the wire"), but didn't have time to watch them yet.

    I wouldn't recommend Futurama, Bender's Game (the DVD from this year), here's what I wrote about it on another board:
