I don't know what Game of Thrones or Walking Dead is about, but I hate all those other shows. Maybe Dr Who might be the best I have seen.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Alf
Sabrina Teenage Witch

Now those are some sick shows.

Now you have Now I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory, and Three and what men? Terrible.

Now those were some great shows. I never watched Alf wasn't it more in the 80's time?

HIMYM was good in the earlier seasons but honestly, it became unwatchable after season 5 but I fully stopped on season 6. TBBT is a great show up until season 5ish. Never liked 2 and a half men, Scheen is just too unlikeable for me.

Well like I said I heard they're similar.

You want to know what's some great shows are? Sopranos I just started season 5 and it's fantastic. Madmen as well but haven't started same goes for Breakingbad. All great shows.

Yeah Alf was more 80s, but good nonetheless. Also can't forget Keenan & Kel, now that was a beast of a show. Can't believe I forgot The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, now that is a classic.

I just got done with The Office and it is actually pretty damn awesome. I LOVED Chuck, but I think The Office is a bit better. Now I am watching the first couple seasons in Top Gear I haven't watched yet.

Fresh prince goes without saying Uncle Phil and Jeffery have to be the best supporting characters of all time.

The office is friggen awesome, I have yet to finish it cuz I like milking shows.

Top Gear? Another 80's show?

Are we talking the British Office or the American Office? The American Office is still a pretty funny show but in my opinion it has gotten a lot worse since Michael Scott left. Also I don't really find the current season to be all that good.

Speaking of good shows, anybody watch Sons of Anarchy? That is by far my favourite show. I like that show more than any other show or movie that is out there. I just started watching last year as season 5 was about to end and I have fallen in love with that show.

Shows I watch and really like (not necessarily in order)

Sons of Anarchy
Game of Thrones
Spartacus
The Walking Dead
Breaking Bad
The Americans
Vikings
The Following
Cult

Shows I'm looking forward to checking out

Bates Motel
Hannibal
Defiance


EDIT: Forgot to mention, I'm seriously thinking of buying "Rome" seasons 1 & 2, just to see if they're as good as I've heard.

Agree with Frenchy that the 3D is probably a fad and won't be around long.
Plasma screens are better for sports because of the higher refresh rate (600 hz was not a typo). I live on the East Coast, no altitude problems. The bigger problem with Plasma is the burn-in effect if you pause them and they don't just break, they die.

I don't care about 3D, but most good TVs being produced have 3D included these days. I don't think you will be able to buy a tv without it soon.

$760 is a decent enough price on a 50" TV, and I've had a Plasma before and thoroughly enjoyed it, mostly because of the high refresh rate made watching live sports/movies/playing games a real blast.

But I don't think that 3D is something that should be considered, the 3D market, for both Home Video (Blu Ray) and TV is so barren (and pretty much non-existent when it comes to TV shows).

Depending on the size of your living quarters, 50" might be too large, and you might find a better deal w/ a smaller TV potentially.

And on the subject of "Burn-In" on Plasma's, it's still an issue, but it's something that's gotten better over the last couple of years. Most Plasma's have something called "Anti-Image Retention" where if you pause something, the Pixels will refresh and that helps keep it from Burning in, but it's not fool-proof.

Top Gear?! It's like the greatest British show in the universe?

American office, because you can't understand British Office probably 90% of the time. Anyone who thought the show would've been just as good with Steve leaving is fooling themselves. Nobody could've replaced Steve, but I think they have done a fantastic job with Andy and Dwight is still there.

Top Gear has been almost completely intolerable since 2009.

Lol, wrong

Season 15 was great
Season 16 was fantastic
Season 17 is underrated
Season 18 was bad
Season 19 so far has been awesome.

No, correct

2009 was when they stopped appearing to be earnest in what they did, doing vaguely silly stuff but still being able to do it with an off the cuff attitude that actually made them identifiable... you could see yourself and your friends in that same position doing the same stuff, and it was fun to watch.

It's not now though. Now it's just tragic.

It became like a bad sitcom after 2009 (and how fitting that How I Met Your Mother was mentioned, which I've given up on because I want to see everyone in it die), each of them became parodies of themselves and became completely unlikeable.

But hey, there seems to be a market for it.
