I don’t watch a lot of TV but there are two TV shows I love to watch.

Dragon Ball Super for childhood nostalgia reasons and MTV’s The Challenge.

What are yours?

The only guilty pleasure o have is a show called the flash, that all I watch on TV which is 1 hour a week tops, I hate the shit! Makes you so unproductive and TV brainwashes you.

I only watch 30 minutes in the morning. Movies are more my thing. In fact, I'm trying to become a filmmaker.

Pre FTE I was a massive TV buff. My colleagues used to be amazed at how I could keep up with so many shows. These days I watch maybe 2 episodes of something per week. Right now it's Luke Cage and also Doomsday Preppers, which is a netflix documentary about prepping. Love it!

When I get home from the race track on Friday & Saturday nights, after a shower I watch Live PD. I do record The Profit and watch it at some point but I don't usually watch tv so I just squeeze The Profit in at some point. My wife watches a lot of those House Hunter shows so if I'm passing through I will sometimes pause for a few minutes and then move on. That's about the extent of my tv time.

Mine are all reruns.
I can't resist Curb Your Enthusiasm and South Park.
Also Midsomer Murders and Death in Paradise, British who-done-its, which are rarely on tv anyway.
Nothing presently showing grabs me.

Ancient Aliens, LivePD (a great validation into how you aren't FREE) and a periodic binge watching of whatever's recommended when I'm laid up in bed not feeling well.

but I love The Expanse.

Really enjoyed that too, they "kinda" kept it real with space physics, unlike that Star Wars crap with bombs dropping in space.

I will tell you what I do much more than tv, I either listen to OTR or Stitcher. OTR is an app with hundreds of Old Time Radio shows.... I love those. Stitcher is an app with lots of podcasts. I listen to everything from Todd & Tyler (really funny talk radio show) to scary stories. You have to give the podcasts on Stitcher a good 10 minutes before you decide you don't like it. Sometimes it starts out sucking and then turns in to one of my favorites.

MJ, since you like Live PD, go to Youtube and watch a little of Everett Tweakers. I sometimes watch city happenings LIVE (lots of live stuff on Youtube) on Youtube and this came up on the feed one day. lol

True Detective, Season 1. It was basically a 12-part movie. My favorite scene was when they ask the ex-cop what happened when he and his partner approached an old house, they show a flashback of what happened, and he just says, "No one was home." Season 2 was terrible.

Manhattan (about the Manhattan Project), because its hard to make a good drama about scientists. The only weakness was that the show was about a period of time leading up to an event, and had nowhere to go after the event. S1 was fantastic, and S2 was good.

Wayward Pines, Season 1, for the "WTF" plot-twists. If you haven't seen Wayward Pines, see S1 before anyone tells you too much about it. Season 2 was weak and ended weaker.

I just got around to watching the latest Star Wars movie... I'm glad someone else mentioned the bombs dropping scene. What the hell was that all about?! And also what was with the crap jokes?

The Expanse is awesome! Anyone watching Killjoys?

I don't watch much TV since I don't have cable anymore. I would say NFL Football is a staple. I watch whenever I can (while working of course) I also tend to turn on Star Trek reruns on Netflix, or old Pro Wrestling late at night when I'm just done with working. I've been know to get lost in Youtube on occasion.

Ozark on Netflix atm, not sure if that's a guilty pleasure though but Ramsey's kitchen nightmares and who wants to be a millionaire re-runs definitely are.

Used to watch a lot (too many) tv series once. The classics I liked the most are:

- The Sopranos
- Breaking Bad
- Twin Peaks
- Friends
- Boardwalk Empire
- The Killing

More recent ones:

- Sherlock
- House of Cards
- Peaky Blinders
- Narcos
- Gomorra
- Westworld

Lately finished ''Dark'' (German Netflix production) - really good.

Nowadays I restricted myself to one episode tops per day, since I don't want to lose as much time to it as before.

Currently watching ''El Chapo'' - not as good as Narcos - but still really interesting.
