Life without cable is both good and bad. Good in that I just watch the stuff I want, and bad in that once I have watched everything I want I have nothing left and I cant just flip channels cause i don't have any channels. Availability on netflix is a plus.

I feel like I have seen every good show there is but I know that isn't true. Please help me brain storm some new show ideas.

List of recent stuff I have seen. (will update if someone suggests something that I have already seen as well) :

  • Everything on HBOGO(my dad gave me his HBOGO Password, Ive pretty much exhausted all of its offerings.)
  • Breaking Bad
  • Wilfred US
  • Workaholics
  • Bobs Burgers
  • Community
  • The Office
  • Mad Men
  • Louie
  • Arrested Development
  • Psych
  • Twin Peaks(but I have not seen the whole series, I should revisit it.)
  • Firefly
  • Dr Horrible (more of a movie if you ask me but I loved it)
  • Full Metal Alchemist (Watched it back in the day on adult swim)
  • The IT Crowd
  • 30 Rock
  • The Twilight Zone(classic!)
  • Dexter(I'm watching it with my girlfriend)
  • X-Files (come on, I'm not a little kid I grew up on that show!)
  • BSG
  • Top Gear (one of my favorite shows of all time ever on the earth until I die!)
  • Misfits
  • The Simpsons (really that was a suggestion, Ive seen the golden seasons many times.)
  • Its always sunny in philidelphia
  • Hey Arnold (childhood classic)
  • Archer
  • Adventure TIme
  • Justified
  • Party Down
  • Frisky Dingo
  • Every Kind of Startrek
  • Weeds
  • American Horror Story

Shows I will look into based on y'alls suggestions:

  • Parks and Recreation
  • Sons of Anarchy
  • Dr Who
  • Trailer Park Boys
  • Sherlock
  • Pushing Daisies
  • The Guild
  • Skins UK
  • Luther
  • Jeckyl
  • Heroes
  • Fringe
  • Regular show
  • Seinfeld (I have an irrational hatred of this show which is probably unfounded. I guess I will check it out.)
  • Wilfred AUS (I stayed away cause it only has a few episodes but I suppose its worth a look since its the same actor plays wilfred)
  • Happy Endings
  • Better off Ted
  • The League
  • Freaks and Geeks

Community is pretty good. Also, The Office is an overall great series despite how bland season 8 was.

Parks and Recreation is pretty funny.

#8 Posted by cp3rockon (26 posts) -

Mad Men. It takes a few episodes to get into but stick with it.

#9 Posted by natetodamax (19206 posts) -

Louie and Arrested Development are excellent shows. Very funny.

I would also recommend Trailer Park Boys. It's one of my favorite shows of all time but you kinda need an appreciation of the mockumentary style of show to be able to really enjoy it.

Parks and Recreation

30 Rock

Secret Garden (A pretty awesome Korean TV show available on netflix)

Battlestar Galactica

#12 Posted by MistaSparkle (2148 posts) -

Dexter!!!

Mad Men is pretty good too, but not super ACTION-PACKED!

The original British version of Skins (first two seasons) and the Inbetweeners are fun, and while you're there check out the IT Crowd as well.

Louie is hilarious in its own weird sad way.

#13 Posted by JeanLuc (3584 posts) -

Go watch X-files. It's all on Netlifx!

#14 Posted by Chaser324 (6546 posts) -

  • Archer
  • Louie
  • Sons of Anarchy
  • Mad Men
  • Battlestar Galactica
  • Firefly
  • Arrested Development
  • Luther
  • Jeckyl
  • Sherlock
  • Top Gear
  • Pushing Daisies

The first season is good and it sets up a lot of the story.

#23 Posted by Devil240Z (3366 posts) -

Ok I'm caught up. Please check OP before making suggestions.

My dad has all of six feet under on DVD, so Ive stayed away. FUCK, the theme song haunts me.

#32 Edited by thebunnyhunter (1421 posts) -

I'll put forward Weeds, with the first 6 seasons being on Netflix

Here is a summary from that one site that giantbomb used to know:

"Following the life of Nancy Botwin, Weeds is an award-winning dark comedy. The plot centers around Botwin and her attempt to deal with the sudden death of her husband by supporting herself financially by selling marijuana. The series has showcases Botwin's progressively dangerous lifestyle and escalating crime."

edit*

also want to throw out "The Whitest Kids You Know", a great sketch comedy show available on Netflix

#33 Posted by SlightConfuse (3963 posts) -
MAD MEN
#34 Posted by Antikythera (55 posts) -

"Are you Afraid of the Dark?"

#35 Posted by YI_Orange (1148 posts) -

Watch Buffy The Vampire Slayer. It's long, but all on Netflix instant. The first season is not very good(only 12 episodes), but the rest is fantastic and it quickly became one of my favorite shows. The spinoff Angel is pretty good too, season 5 is incredible.

  • The Simpsons (really that was a suggestion, Ive seen the golden seasons many times.)

Wait, how is that even possible? They never air the good episodes anymore.

I watched them when I was a kid... They were on for multiple hours every day.

@Devil240Z:

I see that FOX's attempts to systematically erase your memory of the better episodes has failed.

#41 Posted by CaptainTightPants (2834 posts) -

I have been watching Buffy The Vampire Slayer recently and that show is a lot better than I remember it being. There is my suggestion.

Has anyone suggested The Wire? Watch that as well.

I havent seen a legit television broadcast in years so I wouldn't know. But when I do see TV is scares me.

#43 Posted by benpicko (2008 posts) -

Peep Show.

Doctor Who.

Sherlock.

Twin Peaks.

#44 Posted by Ghost_Cat (1439 posts) -

Party Down, Twilight Zone, Tales from the Crypt, and King of the Hill (of course).

#45 Posted by beepmachine (618 posts) -

I've been watching Hell on Wheels. Liking it a lot.

#46 Posted by DarthOrange (3864 posts) -

Dan Vs is the greatest show currently on television, with Regular Show behind it.

American Horror Story is also pretty fantastic.

#47 Posted by Hunter5024 (5686 posts) -

King of The Hill dude. Also if you watch that Freaks and Geeks show, maybe check out Undeclared afterwards too. They're both by Judd Apatow, and have some talent that ended up getting pretty big in recent years. Also Eastbound & Down has some great moments.

#48 Posted by edwardt (62 posts) -

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Peep Show. Just finished my bi-annual re-watch of both.

#49 Posted by meaninoflife42 (512 posts) -

I've been enjoying Joss Whedon's other Fox show Dollhouse.

#50 Edited by Vinny_Says (5709 posts) -

I don't see It's always sunny in Philadelphia on that list or Bored to death. Give them a try.

edit: never mind I see it now, and I assume Bored to death is on HBO Go. I don't know what to suggest now.....go play borderlands 2 when that comes out I guess?
