    Default What are you watching?

    In the spirit of the "What Are You Doing?" and "What Are You Drinking?" threads, this is a thread to discuss what you are watching (T.V, documentaries, movies, youtube channels, etc.)

    Currently, there are only three scripted television series that I am following: Game Of Thrones on HBO, Veep on HBO (although I haven't watched the current season premier yet,) and Vikings on History Channel. I reccommend them all, they are each good to outstanding. Vikings, I should say, I find a bit weak on the story, but it is still enjoyable and features some very nice scenery. GoT is simply the best acted show on television, IMO. And Veep has Julia Louis Dreyfuss, whom I love.

    My wife is an avid watcher of Project Runway (mainly because she makes some of her own clothes and looks for inspiration) so I end up watching it to appear interested in what she is interested in. I do not enjoy the show, however, and don't reccomend it.

    I used to watch Walking Dead, but for some reason I stopped watching the season that just concluded. I think I am about 8 episodes behind. I have them on the DVR, so I will most likely get to them at some point.

    I am watching Game of Thrones, Parks & Recreation, How I met Your Mother, and The Simpsons. Anything else I watch is sporadic. Oh, and recently I finally saw "The Hunger Games".

    Last night I watched Louis C.K's most recent HBO stand up special.

    Pretty funny. Lagged a bit in the middle, but I laughed out loud several times.

    I'm a movie person and never been into TV shows, but recently I've been watching Ni Hao Kai Lan and Geordie Shore. So, it's either completely naive and innocent or completely filthy (but never violent); that's the way it's got to be. I appreciate these shows for their honesty and purity of approach.

    Just watched the first two parts of National Geographic Channel's six part series on the '80s. The first part was very good, the second Not quite as much. Good enough for me to watch the remaining installments.

    I don't watch TV anymore. I don't have a tv here at dorm, but even when I go home, I just watch what my parents watch, and only sometimes. I only watch TV for movies mostly nowadays. But I watch Downton Abbey when it's in Season, and some Masterpiece Theatre (Mysteries) in the summer.

    Don’t watch much TV these days.
    But I absolutely love surfing youtube for old and obscure movies.
    Black and white British movies from 1940-1960 seem to have a certain magic about them.
    If you have a spare hour and a half check this one out, it’s a good example with the lovely Diana Dors and some very good acting.

    I used to watch Merlin, but then it stopped and I hated the last episode too.

    I stopped watching Doctor Who with the new writer but this series seems better so I might follow it.

    Downton Abbey when it's on; news & local news; and I'm afraid we've got absolutely hooked on the teatime quiz show 'The Chase'. We just love it when the team outwits the Chasers and go home with thousands.

    I just cant watch Dr Who now, it’s got so silly.
    Every episode the characters are in mortal danger of death or the end of the universe and yet they still crack childish jokes about the situation!
