Series on the Interwebs: What have you watched? Tips for people?

Post by Auli » Tue Sep 19, 2017 3:38 pm

I'm looking for a neat series to watch. I'm into sci-fi, adventure or some thriller stuff.

Contemplating Dark Matter, since they have the writers that worked on Stargate; SG-1 (which was awesome).

You can even come out of the "I actually watch a lot of anime"-closer ;) Death Note is neat, so is Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. I haven't really found anything else that I SUPER-liked :/

So... tips or tell us what you've watched!

Quantum Leap.

Not even joking.

Me and my dad used to watch it and it always gave a grin.
This thread is loaded with bullshit about me and has literally zero proof.

Fuck series, go watch the furry episode of CSI and have yourself many keks.
Spoiler!
although if its sci-fi you're looking for, you could always look up classic Doctor Who (the Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker eras specifically)

Every time you bring up Columbo I think of this: :lol:

"Recognize humanity for what it is and play the game."

I'll try to come up with some less-known series/tv miniseries.

Sci-fi: The Prisoner (one of the greatest series of all time, nuff said), Firefly (OK attempt to merge western with sci-fi)

Adventure: Shogun (acceptable adaptation of great source material, full of 80s corny charm)

Thriller: Riget (merges all genres flawlessly together, could still be considered as a thriller), Das Boot (nothing today still rivals the claustrophobic intensity of this masterpiece)

And Bergman's Scenes from a Marriage (marriage is a thriller, adventure and sci-fi)

I don't get it. You want any series to watch, or only streaming online series, or series about the internet? Make sense, bro!

Just a thread to tell people what series they've watched and give tips about what to watch.

Learn to read. Bro.

stuff
Seen Firefly. Sad it was only one season. Movie was also good, so it kinda got an ending.

Das Boot we watched in school when we were... uh, 14 or something? At that age, it was pretty boring. Didn't really pay attention. I've heard it's actually good, though.
I'll read up on some of the ones yuou mentioned. TY

Mini-series:

Rainer Werner Fassbinder's World on a Wire from 1973; I'd like to think this inspired The Matrix, but, as usual, I'm probably way off base. Cerebral, highly-stylized, and detached, all in the best way possible.

Robert Altman's Tanner '88; a scathing mockumentary that follows a fictional presidential candidate against the backdrop of the real presidential election of 1988. A great look at the bread and circuses that is American politics.

As for comedies, most of my favorites are British: Snuff Box, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, Red Dwarf, and That Mitchell and Web Look.
I forgot what I was talking about, but I'm sure it was interesting.

Give it a try. Your matured brain will probably react more positively.

And speaking of war stuff: Al Quiet on the Western Front. The really old one from 1920ish. It's a bit like Full Metal Jacket in that the beginning is mostly fun and camp, but then shit gets real.
