If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Watch Community. Funniest thing on TV right now. Period. There are jokes that you need to be a nerd to get that are so hilarious and so meta. It about 7 friends who are stuck in a study group at a community college, The main character is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) who is a disbarred lawyer who faked a college degree and desperately wants to be a lawyer again along with his friends who are all quirky and amazing in different ways (especially Abed). The cast is brilliant and the writing is amazing.
Mad Men is one of televisions greatest series. It’s not really about anything at all - except characters at a very specific time. It’s a very literary television show and I can’t take my eyes off of it.
I have a bit of a soft spot for High School/College comedy dramas. I easily identify with them and most of all, I just enjoy watching characters take those journeys and GREEK is a very well-constructed tale in that formula along with Clark Duke who steals the scene as Dale, the slightly racist, overbearing evangelical Christian roommate.
I know that the plots are very soap opera but Glee has wicked funny sense of humor and awesome characters that are at heart, your typical self-involved, deceitful, brainless, vindictive, and highly flawed teenagers. But Glee goes out of its way to make every one sympathetic even its most despicable villain. In that way, Glee succeeds by giving you authentic feelings for very grounded characters who you can connect with. It’s a very funny, abrasive, and altogether adorable. And while I’m not a big fan of the songs or of musicals in general, they manage rock out the song and then move on with the story. It’s a fun little show that I dig quite a bit.
I absolutely adore Dexter. It’s one of the most twisted, inventive, brilliant and funniest shows on TV. It’s sort of a reverse of the classic vampire story as the show begins with a character who has accepted that he is a monster, and then it proceeds to show him learning his humanity. One of the other things that I love is that the absolute smartest character is Dexter. Now once you think about it, how many shows have the smartest character be the main character? Not many.
