I take TV recommendations pretty seriously. After all, if I hadn’t listened to my parents, I would have missed out on both Joan of Arcadia and Gilmore Girls. If I hadn’t listened to friends, I would have missed out on Lost (though perhaps after that finale, I shouldn’t have).
And most recently, I sped through Farscape on recommendation from my brother. (Don’t tell me what happens yet — I’m just about to start The Peacekeeper Wars.) What are you supposed to take from this, other than the fact that I surround myself with people of good tastes? Well, recommendation is key to finding new shows. This makes me ask…
What TV shows do you recommend?
It’s a pretty broad question. It can be something that’s been off the air for years, something that’s been on the air a while and is still succeeding, or maybe something brand-new this year. What shows would you recommend to others?
As I sit here watching Revenge, obviously that comes to mind. And man, Happy Endings is consistently funny and worth watching. What else? Well, certainly my go-to favorites: Buffy, Angel. There are the forgotten sitcoms, News Radio and Sports Night. I’m only scratching the surface and stating the obvious here. These are all shows you already know I’d recommend.
What are some others? Those old favorites — or new addictions — that you think other people would enjoy? Farscape was certainly out of my comfort zone, but I was hooked. And I’d recommend it.
Consider thinking outside the box. What would you recommend others to watch? Let me know in the comments.
