Ya The Simpsons is not what it used to be. Still had an amazing run, though.

I think this is one of the worst comedies on tv (that some people find funny):



The show is so contrived and the acting is terrible.

I don't watch anything that airs on network TV anymore. Cable has all the best shows...

but but...it's just such an obvious and planned attempt to appeal to average guys. None of the jokes are novel or the slightest bit original. And the notion that these girls would want to hang out with the guys on the show is ludicrous.

It's like every joke has to do with them being socially awkward...we get it! It just seems like they are trying way too hard. And the forced laugh track...one of the worst. You can tell I have been forced to watch a few episodes.

/end rant

I just think it is the definition of a contrived show, but hey, to each his own.

Until MXC starts to air regularly again, I'll continue to watch TUF, CSI, It's Always Sunny......, The League etc. If MXC ever comes back on TV, I'll be lucky to leave my house.

Impact replays just aren't the same on the computer screen.

I think I already explained my username pages and pages back.

I always read it as "sweep the leg"...but i may have just read yer explanation.

CSI is one of those shows that is just so bad its good. I still can't watch it though.

My faverite shows are by far Mythbusters and pretty much any of the good cartoons: old simpsons, futurama, king of the hill, and south park.

I also think Important Things with Demetri Martin and The Sarah Silverman program are freaking hilarious.

Discuss.

Sorry if this is a little confusing but I didn't want the username thread to turn into tv thread when we can have a perfectly good separate tv thread

^^^Me too. I don't find it quite as thrilling as it was early on but it's still too good to give up.

Basically these are the currently active shows I'm watching (i.e. im not including old shows that i might be watching for the first time):

Dexter
TUF
Caprica
The Walking Dead
Eastbound And Down
Always Sunny

Id recommend all of the above.

I am also watching a few others:

The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret
Bored To Death
Titan Maximum

And I'm on the fence about whether they are worth sticking with for much longer.
