Addictive TV Series?

#1 Post by deviltales » Tue Apr 09, 2013 5:50 am

Game of Thrones, man. The Walking Dead. House too, before it ended. Just to name a few...

Anyone like me, or am I the only one?

They are all pretty great! I find If i start watching a series I get hooked pretty quick, which kills all productivity for me so I try not to start watching anything unless I've a lot of time on my hands. I'm a pretty big fan of all the HBO programs.

I was addicted to Young Justice and GL:TAS until they were screwed over.
If Myst has taught me anything, game making is more about story, atmosphere, and thought than fancy mechanics, explosions, and branding.

Back in the day, Heroes was the weekly show that I couldn't get enough of. I had a big white board in my room with a graph of all the characters as nodes, and I'd draw vertices between them once they met in the show. These days I'm a fan of the usual crop: Doctor Who, Walking Dead, Young Justice, but Burn Notice holds my number one slot at the moment.

Right now, it's Criminal Minds, but it used to be Teen Titans. I loved that show.

I used to watch Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes whenever it was on... until Disney XD decided to cancel it and replace it with a show that would fit the continuity and humor of Ultimate Spiderman... was not happy.

On the other side of the spectrum, while I don't like most "reality TV" outside of Mythbusters (because it's just awesome like that) I do tend to marathon and rewatch what I call "creation competition shows". Face Off, Best Ink, Fashion Star, if they are creating something and we watch them and we get to see the final product? I am hooked. Some of the people on these shows are unbelievably talented and it sucks that only one person can win. (In the same vein, I love cooking competitions. I am a Chopped fangirl.) I think I got into these shows because it is much easier to find these on rerun and pick up at a random spot while at work than trying shows with storylines and with my job it can be hard to watch the later sometimes (unless I work night shift).

I am also a fan of Doctor Who and Sherlock and hope that when I start The Walking Dead it won't take over my life. Buffy and Angel with big shows for me as a teenager that I enjoy a rewatch through. I am not watching Game of Thrones right now because I am trying to read the novels... key word: TRYING. Oh man are they looooooong.

I'm a huge fan of both of those!

I'm enjoying GoT... also really enjoyed Sopranos, Weeds (but lost interest around the 4th season), Buffy, Angel, Merlin, House, Futurama (*sniff* the dog episode *sniffle*), Firefly, Babylon 5... well, and a lot of other stuff, really. I tend to prefer TV series over movies.

I watched Avatar: The Last Airbender because it has so many TV Tropes... that one was pretty addictive, too.

I have a major problem with getting unhooked as fast as getting hooked. So, while I have only gotten half way through season two on Dexter, The Walking dead, Burn Notice, Merlin, Heroes, LOST, House, the list go's on. Lucky for me, I have a knack for not spoiling myself on what happens in said shows and I can start again when the mood it there. Comedy's are my achilles heel. With show's like: Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law and Malcolm in the Middle, I would always have them on in the background. There is one thing that has me more hooked then anything. I listen to it every night before I sleep and have been doing so for the last 4 years, but, it is a radio play, so It shall have no mention here :mrgreen:.
