Talkin Bout That Television Thread

Post by Shnoork on 11/11/2014, 10:27 pm

Here is the dillema. As of late, I've been watching a show and noticed I have nobody irl to talk to about it. You all know how it is. You really like this show, really connect with it somehow and none of your bros watch it. You say "Bros. Come partake of this program with me." And they never do, under such pretenses as "Im watching whatever series right now, I dont want to get into another" or "It just doesnt sound like something I would watch."

Well, if you've ever been in this boat, fret no longer! I decided to make this thread as a way to share on movies or shows with the community of Oasis. Whether it be a cult classic or a budding new lineup, put it here! Perhaps your recomendation will encourage someone else to get into it? Or maybe someone already is into your show and would love to talk to you about it? You never know!

I would just like to say, right now, some ground rules. For starters, dont go out of your way to trash any one thing in particular, especailly if someone else likes it. Lets not ruin other peoples day, shall we? Having an opinion is one thing, but the internet tends to let these things get out of control quickly. Be cool.

I'll go ahead and start. The show Ive been watching lately is called Mile Tyson Mysteries. It airs on Cartoon Networks Adult Swim, but if you dont have that it is also released on Netflix on a weekly basis. This animated show is about Mike Tyson, who goes on Scooby Doo style adventures acompanied by his adoptive Korean daughter, a ghost, and a talking pigeon. Each episode packs a whole lot of humor into a 10 minute time frame. The opening sequence alone consists of Mike Tyson riding a pterodactyl, wearing a track suit, toting a rocket launcher. Honestly, this cartoon is just plain funny. No gimmicks, no draggy storyline that seems to plague todays cartoons. To be fair, though, it really is on Adult Swim for a reason. Regardless, I would highly recommend watching it. With 3 episodes to date, I eagerly await each coming installment. A great casual show to watch.

Well, Doctor Who recently finished its eighth series since its comeback, and it has been awesome. Peter Capaldi has taken over the lead role and is fast becoming my favourite yet, he is hilarious and serious and dark and dangerous at the same time. As for the finale,
Spoiler:
I loved the final scene but hope this is the last we see of Clara (although I doubt it will be). Those parallels where they were both lying then the Doctor's line about hugs was a fitting ending IMO.

Also been following the Legend of Korra recently. The emo kid is hilarious

Agents of Shield is constantly leaving me screaming at the tv at the end of an episode.

If live NHL hockey counts, there are few things that make me scream, swear and cheer more.  Laughing

Its looking like Netflix is going to be dropping some Arrested Development news on us sometime soon, whether it be a chronological season 4 or a new season 5. I would want a new season, to tell you the truth. Some wierd stuff happened in the last one... Many of which make excellent inside jokes.

 Haven't heard anything about another season, but I like AD. Felt like the last season (Netflix one) didn't really fit in with the rest of the show though.

^I agree, that last season was a bit off. To be expected though, as there was a huge break between seasons.

And as for the possible new season, we really dont know anything about it yet. The only reason it was postulated that there could be an anouncement soon is because Netflix had this little "easter egg" where instead of friends picks, it would recommend picks from the characters in the show (i.e "Watched by Tobias Fünke"). I would say keep your eye out for it.
