    The Wire
    Californication
    That show that ha all the actors on it playing themselves.
    House of Cards
    The Newsroom or whatever that show was that Piwanoi thought was real.


    Lots of others that I don't know about because I haven't seen them.



    How could you have gone through life not ever once seeing Seinfeld, even by accident?

    I also have never seen an episode of Seinfeld...or Friends...or any of the other American prime time drivel where all the "men" are metrosexual, whining faggots and the "women" are strident shrews. I'm quite sure it's a fairly accurate portrayal of today's America, I simply see no reason to subject myself to it.

    ^^^ Taxi, now that was a fucking show!

    The two most talked about ones I'm yet to watch are Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad.

    Breaking Bad, i can't count the number of times i have downloaded it and then just had something better to do.

    I'll try again in the Winter, when even the thought of going out will freeze off the balls i don't have.

    Friends was comedy gold IMO. It didn't stand the test of time though, very dated and unfunny if you watch it now. Shows like Taxi will be funny forever.

    Seen no tv shows from the last 13 years.

    A tv is for nailing up the jacksy or watching football on.
