If it's crap ... We'll tell you
I know this site is about movies but I'm pretty sure there are many people here who watch TV shows and play video games as well. I'm currently watching Fringe and I'm liking it so far, but I don't know what to watch after that. I want something to watch while I wait for The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad to come back on. Any type of show is fine, something that you find addictive is what I'm looking for! :D
Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, Homeland, Justified, Archer etc I would keep going but those are a good start
If it's on, Last Resort. Others: Modern Family, Arrow, Game of Thrones, Homeland etc
Gravity Falls, Reaper, Sons of Anarchy
Sons of Anarchy, Game of Thrones , Boardwalk Empire, or Parks and Rec. All those are pretty addicting shows with really engaging character driven stories.
Just to bump in with 2 cool sitcoms I am watching, try out The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men, both ongoing series with the first being at it's 6th season while the latter at it's 10th. Other than what everyone else mentioned you could give American Horror Story a try.
Two and a Half Men doesn't "suck" now that Charlie Sheen left. Of course the show is a lot worse than it used to be, I mean a lot. But still, it can't be cataloged as a "shit show". Why? Because the writers are the same and they still come up with awesome screenplays. And although Ashton Kutcher isn't filling the shoes of Charlie Sheen, he does have an interesting comedic take on the role.
And why the hell do you say that The Big Bang Theory sucks? I can understand what you said about Two and a Half Men, but about The Big Bang Theory, I can't.
I personally do not like TBBT because of how it treats geek culture, people with high I.Q.s and women. Sorry, but most scientists are NOT geeks, nor do they spend one day a week at the local comic book store. Yes some can be awkward, but some can be quite urbane and charming. You even have some that people would never consider a scientist.

If only one or two of the characters were awkward and nerdy, that would be fine. If they had SOMEONE that was both smart AND well-adjusted, it might be ok. But the entire cast are charactertures of stereotypes. It's worse with the female cast, as they exist solely for sexually-based themes or storylines. Penny is the worst of the bunch, as there is very little about her save for acting, shoes, fashion...and either sex jokes or fucking a cast member.
Unfortunately, the writer is notorious for this...look at the women and characters in Two and a Half Men...when it comes to women or non-drinking, non-womanizing characters, they hit all the stereotypes and none of the benefits. So no, I do not like the show. At all.
I like TBBT for exactly that reason...it's the whole bad stereotypical highschool trope joke for people in their 30's. The whole joke is "We're socially stunted and repel women right now, but when we grow up, we'll have important jobs and be awesome" and then they grew up and were just as awkward.
The whole show is an exaggeration. It's just like watching Married With Children.
Well I get your point and everything you said is perfectly valid. But it just works for me. I can't say it's the best sitcom out there or if they represent the types of people in a truthful way... I just watch it to get some laughs and don't get involved with it as mush as other shows like Game of Thrones, for example.
Looking After Jojo
American Horror Story season 1 ~ (season2 fell off, to quote UltraKiD...)
Ah man, that's disappointing to hear. I have just one episode left of season 1 and I was really looking forward to season 2.
It started off pretty promising but it's getting a tad convoluted by trying incorporate every possible horror mythos imaginable. For a while it was fine since the finale before the holidays, it got a little oversaturated. Plus Ryan Murphy really likes to remind people that he hates patriarchy, which I wouldn't mind but his writing is so self-indulgent it makes Aaron Sorkin look humble.
I'd still recommend both season though. They are beautiful shot and acted. Probably the most original series on TV right now.
