I don't know if you're into this type of show, but Sleepy Hollow is a really good show. It has some horror elements, but the dynamic between the main characters is great and fun to watch. Give it a try, you won't be dissapointed.

I have heard of Sleepy Hollow before but have not taken the time to watch. I get so wrapped up in my silly reality shows I forget there are some legit series to see!
Show's I'm watching/watched: Misfits (U.K) Scandal Orange Is the New Black House of Cards (I need to catch up) The Newsroom (disappointed that it's ending soon) Real World The Challenge Elementary (Need to catch up on this season, which is sad. I was obsessed with this show) Bob's Burgers (Idk why, when I was out of the country this show would play all the time and I fell in love with Tina) Big Brother (watching this season but rarely, and it will probably go back to 'rarely' with this season) Freaks & Geeks (and oldie, but I re-watched it a while back and loved it) Workaholics (I haven't seen this current season except for the first episode) Broad City (I watched it online at night sometimes and became obsessed) The Mole (and old tv show, but I recommend it if you enjoy shows like "Whodunnit", it's about how one person in the group is a mole and tries to hold the group back from earning money and the rest of the cast tries to figure who is the mole. Each week they get a test, and whoever gets the most incorrect gets eliminated. The shows are youtube (Season 1 was my favorite), there was even a celebrity mole season.) all I can think of right now. *How can I forget the great, Shameless

I watched OITNB back in season 1 out of curiosity, and I became obsessed with it, definitely in my top 3 tv shows right one. Is House of Cards good? I have been tempted to watch it, but i haven't had the opportunity. Elementary is absolutely amazing, I loved that in this version Watson is a woman. Have you watched the british show Sherlock? If you haven't, you should try it. Freaks and Geeks is one of my favorite shows ever. I have rewatched it like a million times. I feel nostalgic now
[QUOTE=JamieFire;442682]All I have to say is BOBS BURGERS! :love_heart: and I could never deny my undying love for South Park :)[/QUOTE] Bob Burgers season 1 was great. This season has been a struggle to continue. Aww, South Park I don't remember the last time I've saw it but it feels like a decade.

Same here, all my friends and cousins pushed me into watching it and I kept hearing about. But I'm upset that I'm gonna have to wait a year for the next season. House of Cards, it's tough in the beginning. I remember it took me like a week to get through the first few episodes but once I got through them I was hooked. I still havent finished season 2 but I'm almost done. I need to get on that, because it's been a while. Some crazy stuff happens though. Elementary was just had a flawless season 1 and I adore Johnny Lee Miller as an actor but season 2 doesn't compare. But I know I'll marathon it soon. The whole love thing going on with Watson, idk I'm not into it. So I think that's what been pushing me away. I have not seen the British verison, but I've heard a lot of good things about it. I'll try it though. Freaks and Geeks is just a classic. No one can hate it. I cant believe I forgot to add Shameless, I'm gonna have to edit that on my original post. That show is one of my all time favorites.
Just some of my favorites. Orange is the New Black Six Feet Under Orphan Black (all of you go watch immediately) Shameless Dexter Girls Revenge MasterChef (not scripted, but I'm a sucker for cooking shows) Harpers Island Nikita Psych American Horror Story All I can think of off the top go my head.

American Horror Story is another great one. My favorite has to be Asylun by a mile. Coven started great, but it went downhill fast. Now, Freakshow looks absolutely insane, it has the potential to be the best season yet.
Off the top of my head... o boy here we go! American Horror Story Bates Motel Hannibal (VERY RECOMMEDED) The Killing Scandal Grey's Anatomy (soon to be a HTGAWM fan... damn you Shonda and your addictive shows) OITNB House of Cards Mad Men Shameless Skins Big Brother CAN/UK/UKCeleb/AUS The Amazing Race US/CAN The Real World The Challenge Are You The One? True Blood The Leftovers Looking The Blacklist Fargo HIMYM (so sad its over) Friends (classic) Rookie Blue Downton Abbey Suits The Big Bang Theory Once Upon A Time Breaking Bad probably a few more... haha

It's definitely one of my favorites.
I left off: Grey's Anatomy Lost (I could rematch this any day of the week) Big Bang Theory The Lying Game (here's where you can make fun....loved every minute of the abc family show) People's Couch Homeland New Girl How I Met Your Mother

Ive been hooked since the pilot.

I cannot stand Aria on the show nor in the books and I hate that she's just the main attention on the show (it should be Queen Hanna obv). I read the first book of the lying game, and wasn't into it.

I just pray that Ali doesn't have a twin but I want to start reading the books!

The books are better and aren't exactly the same with the tv show, it has different stories/drama along with it (Which I find better). But I really do hope someone puts Aria in her place, the most obnoxious character.
Tough to think of all the scripted shows I've watched over the last year. These come to mind: Revenge True Blood Covert Affairs - Piper PeraYES! The Walking Dead Halt and Catch Fire - Computers and sexiness FTW. The Bridge Hell on Wheels Orphan Black - Yup, as good as Fab says! The Emmy statue should be a bust of Tatiana Maslany. Doctor Who Homeland HIMYM The Good Wife - Probably the best show on network TV right now. True Detective - The best series of the year, hands down. It was awesome. Downton Abbey - Hmm...I really don't have anything I can say to defend this one, heh. Sherlock - Benedict Cumberbatch. Need I say more? The Americans Modern Family - I'm up to mid season 2 and it's a great 22 minute time burner when I need something to watch. Justified - Raylan is a badass! Grey's Anatomy - I've stuck with it and it has gotten better. House of Cards - Season 1 was great. Still waiting on season 2. The Leftovers Veep - Much funnier than I thought it was going to be. I marathoned. Newsroom - They hit their stride in season 2. Sucks there will be no season 4.
My favorites: Parks and Recreation - this show is truly the best comedy I have ever seen, the cast is phenomenal. Anyone that haven't watched it should definitely start, you won't be disappointed. Orange is the New Black The Americans Hannibal Mad Men Elementary Freaks and Geeks Revenge Game of Thrones Masters of Sex - this show really caught me by surprise, very good show Sons of Anarchy American Horror Story Hannibal Sleepy Hollow Arrow Scandal Bates Motel True Detective Fargo
B, I knew you'd like Orphan Black!!!

Season one was great and I'm waiting on season two. Fargo is still on my DVR. I need to watch it! Glad to see there is at least one other fan of The Americans. ;)

Modern familyyyy!!! You are right, definitely if you're in need of something to watch. Caught it randomly while I was doing my hair and couldn't waste time flipping through channels. It's cute and funny, I like it. And LOVE Sofia Vergara.

Glad to see there is at least one other fan of The Americans. ;)[/QUOTE] Masters of Sex is amazing, I love period pieces based on that era. Fargo is my favorite new show of the year hands down, with True Detective a close second. The cast was truly terrific. I have only seen season 1 of The Americans, but so far it has been a crazy rollercoaster, plus my love for Keri Russell is endless. Is The Bridge any good? I don't know if you watch Hannibal, but it's truly one of the best shows on broadcast tv right now, you should definitely give it a tru, I have a feeling you'll like it.
[QUOTE=fabulous788;442931]B, I knew you'd like Orphan Black!!![/QUOTE] I'm totally into that show! I have a big crush on [strike]Beth[/strike]Sarah, but I'd hang with Alison if the mood was right...as long as she's not being overly paranoid and packing. ;) [spoiler]That said, I think Cosima and Helena are easily the most interesting clones - although Rachel's story should get enhanced next season with Kira![/spoiler]

This conversation is reminding me of one of my favorite lines from the sometimes panned but also loved movie, High Fidelity: [video=youtube;yBUOhFs7t2s]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBUOhFs7t2s[/video] And it's true. At least to some extent.

The season 2 plot is much weaker than season 1, but it's a good marathoning type show. I can't give it a recommend, but I'm invested so I'm watching. The Bridge is True Detective, before True Detective. Not HBO cool, but still gritty with lots of crazy **** happening and twists. Major twists. I think season 1 is worth viewing although I can see it being hit or miss with some people. It's at least worth two episodes of your time. This Fargo thing is bothering me as I put if off after viewing a pilot I liked (but didn't love) and now I just need to push play on episode two. It's high on my list, behind Orange is the New Black. When I think of Hannibal I think of the movie that did not live up to Silence of the Lambs. Maybe I need to rethink that. It's one of those weird biases that stick with a person.

Mads Mikkelsen is perfect as Dr. Hannibal Lecter. If you are not put off by some gory scenes, give it a try.

Finally someone who watches the Newsroom, I was sad to hear that season 3 will be the final. Modern Family is another one I forgot to add to my list earlier, love that show. Someone else mentioned Sherlock, I really do need to start watching that. But I'm too attached to Elementary.
