    So our cable has been on an express-class one-way journey to oblivion, and thus, I'm having to resort to switching to watching shows online. My connection is not all that good, but at least this way I make the show schedules and I can watch anything as long as I know where to look.

    Anyway, I want to ask you guys what shows you suggest I watch. So far, I'm only watching House MD like 2 episodes a day. Please, no trolling or flaming or judging what others watch, I just really need good entertainment. Thanks!

    Bones it good IMO, as is Castle, and CSI.
    I don't really watch many non-anime shows, as we don't really have TV :3

    I gather scrubs is a medical show, so is it more drama, comedy or medicine itself? I grew up watching ER, and now switched to House MD, so I might need some comedy relief.

    Plenty of comedy with drama here and there but mostly comedy and a good one too, also Community is kinda like that but only its in collage.

    Heres a List of things i personally think would suit your entertainment needs.
    Not that these are all torrent-able.

    The Inbetweeners (Comedy) I found every episode of this to be funny.
    Family Guy (Comedy) Some episodes are pretty shoddy but some are quite funny.
    Futurama (Comedy) We all know Futurama..
    South Park (Comedy) Has its absolutely epic episodes, and it's not so funny ones. Best google some form of "Best of" list.
    Skins (Drama) i found that only season 1 and 2 were good, the rest was a waste of my life.
    An Idiot Abroad (Comedy/World) It's a Ricky Gervais classic where one of his producers who's a complete tard gets sent around the world.

    These are just series' that are mostly ongoing (apart from Skins) that have very recent episodes and seemed to top off watching the T.V for me.

    Ugh, Family Guy, that show totally blows... I'm sorry.

    I'd much rather watch King of the Hill [I miss that show], and Futurama.

    For shows to recommend, FlashForward. Great Sci-Fi show.
    For comedy, Eh, the first 5 seasons of The Office.

    Also, use torrents. They're amazing. You can literally find anyshow, and download seasons within.. hours, days.

    I also agree to watch The Walking Dead.

    ATM I'm watching:

    - The Big Bang Theory: a must watch if you love comedy (.torrent)
    - Fringe: I love it, Sci-Fi (.torrent)
    - Caprica: quite good, but it got cancelled and thanks to a Canadian channel I'm watching the final eps (that will air in USA in 2011) (.torrent)
    - Scrubs: almost at the end of it, last 3 episodes (I'm waiting for the Italian dub)
    - The Walking Dead: I don't find it so great even if I love zombies, but it's ok (.torrent)
    - Dexter: it's great, nothing to add (.torrent)
    - Smallville: sooo boring, I don't recommend it but I must see the ending after 10 seasons (.torrent)
    - The Event: quite good, Sci-Fi (.torrent)
    - V: another quite good show, waiting for Season 2 to start in January (.torrent)
    - South Park: it was epic some series ago, now just some eps are decent (Italian dub)
    - Star Trek The Original Series (!!!): it's great, but I just started to watch the WHOLE Star Trek from the beginning, it will be a looooooong way. XD (Italian Dub)

    I mainly use .torrent for the fact that I find them as soon as they air in USA, plus Italian subbers from Itasa are VERY fast (a manner of 4-5 hours for mainstream shows, and their subtitles are perfect) in the creation/translation of the subtitles to Italian. ^^
    I usually prefer original dub + italian subs, but in rare cases (watch list) I prefer the italian version. [​IMG]

    The problem with "The Event".. 8 episodes in I think, and we still have no idea what's happening. Like we still don't know "what" the Event is.

    What you mean to tell me you didn't realise what they meant when they marketed it as the new 'Lost'?!

    Except with Lost, in the first episode, I called it that they were dead, and I didn't think anything else.

    But with The Event

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Wish it didn't become the new Lost because.. I hated Lost.
