Default Best Shows on TV?

I don't get to watch shows weekly so I get the DVD or download

I'm watching 'Dexter' and have 'Damages' on Blue Ray, plans to also watch 'Mad Men'.

are there any other good shows that I should watch?

Real Time with Bill Maher? more like Colbert and Stewart than a scripted TV show. I don't get HBO and isn't the show based on current events? so by the time I watch it won't be as relevant
I'll see what True Blood is about

are 'Breaking Bad', 'Rescue Me', 'In Treatment' any good?

Oh you have comedy central.

Quote:
Flight of the Conchords is a Grammy Award-winning New Zealand comedy duo composed of Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement. Billing themselves as "Formerly New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo",[1] the group uses a combination of witty observation, characterisation and acoustic folk guitars. The duo's comedy and music became the basis of a BBC radio series and then an American television series, which premiered in 2007, also called Flight of the Conchords.

They were named Best Alternative Comedy Act at the 2005 US Comedy Arts Festival and Best Newcomer at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and they received a nomination for the Perrier Comedy Award at the 2003 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The duo's live performances have gained them a worldwide cult following.[2]

This is their stand up:


The one before is their show.

This is what the show is about:

Quote:
The fictional series revolves around the pair as they try to achieve success as a band in New York City and try to develop an American fan base. The regular cast includes fellow comedians Rhys Darby as Murray, Arj Barker as Dave, Kristen Schaal as their excessively devoted and obsessed fan Mel, David Costabile as Doug, Mel's tolerant husband, and Eugene Mirman as Eugene, their landlord. This show also features many other comedians in guest starring roles. Their songs are woven into the plot of each episode. The first season consisted of 12 episodes.

The second season of Flight of the Conchords started on HBO on January 18, 2009. The first episode of the second season premiered online on Funny or Die a few weeks early on December 17, 2008.[16] On December 21, the first episode of Flight of the Conchords, season two, became available for online viewing on a variety of additional platforms including HBO.com, iTunes and HBO's YouTube channel.[17] The second season consisted of 10 episodes.

Surprisingly, given their success outside of New Zealand, Bret and Jemaine are rumoured to have had project proposals continually denied funding by New Zealand public television. As Brannavan Gnanalingam notes in The Lumiere Reader, rumour has it that NZ TV3 denied funding because Bret and Jemaine's humour was deemed "too Wellington", meaning their humour would not work with the average New Zealander outside the nation's capital.[18]

Flight of the Concords is a very funny show. The Office, at least its earlier episodes, was comedic gold. Top Gear is a pretty neat show too.

looks like 'True Blood' and 'Flight of the Concord' are popular

I tend to not watch network TV shows
seen some episodes of The Office
does Heroes have a good storyline or is just another popular teen show with a poor plot?

Entourage, Dexter, and breaking bad are my top 3 right now, you gotta check out breaking bad when u get the chance, great acting, great story and great directing. I used to watch a lot of curb your enthusiasm back when I had HBO on fta but now that I don't, I download a few episodes sometimes, can't wait for the Seinfeld reunion on the show.

I'm loving the True Blood. I like Big Love and Dexter as well. And Claudius' picks minus lost are about it for me.

The Wire

Battlestar Gallactica


Best written shows that I've ever seen. Period.

Both series are done and available on DVD.
