I'm never able to talk to people... and I finally figured out why. I have nothing to talk about. When I listen to people, they often talk about a few things - School, sports, movies, and shows. I can sometimes carry out conversations about school, but not when they're a completely different age group than me. So I figured shows would be both enjoyable for me and useful for socializing.

So, what shows do you watch? I'm making a list for myself.

I recently started on the Twilight Zone (Seasons 1-4), none of the newer stuff, just what Rod Sterling threw out in the 50s, 60s.

Pretty great...they have a different way of doing it in the past.

@Crickster

but other than that most shows i watch has already been said.

Please! Say them again. I want to see which ones are popular and which ones are not.

...and I'm now addicted to Game of Thrones. Pretty great show. Finished the first season already.

You could watch Blackadder. Top Gear as well (UK version only, the American hosts are horrible).

Given that the UK hosts are racist misogynists, what are the US hosts like?

Last I watched, boring, lame, almost completely scripted, bad actors and usually the best things they do the British came up with (the BMW 10series).

Boring, lifeless dullards. Bah, I don't think Hammond or James are twats, just Clarkson. James is nice.

Breaking Bad was fantastic, and I'm looking forward to Better Call Saul, but I don't actually do a whole lot of couch surfing myself. I do watch a whoooooole lot of anime online, though.

Among my favorites are:

Cowboy Bebop
Fooly Cooly
Eureka Seven
Dennou Coil
The Big-O
Psycho-Pass
Serial Experiments Lain
Ergo Proxy
Another
Kanatagatari
Paranoia Agent
Paprika
Ghost in the Shell / Innocence / associated episodic AUs
and of course pretty much everything Ghibli, though I haven't been through all of it yet

No no no. Although I have never seen any of the listed shows, I assure you that Castle sucks like absolutely nothing else. It is #1 on the list of shows I hate the most, it's a list of 1 (or 2 depending on certain things) because nothing compares to the extreme stupidity of it.

Currently I'm watching Black Butler and Attack on Titan. Not sure how I feel about Black Butler yet. I have sorta stopped Attack on Titan for the time being but it seems ok.

It's worth mentioning that I recently watched Death Note and it has become my absolute favorite show of all time. Everyone needs to watch it!

To hate a show and the show being sux is three different things.
You might lub a bad show and you might hate a good show, but being suxxxor can actually be measured by the storytelling and technical specifics, acting and money spent.

#1 suxxxor is by any measure currently GoT for its nowhere-going story, papermaché characters, lack of focus, lack of continuity, sudden changes of mind, bad acting of the main characters (the side-characters are surprisingly good), lack of atmosphere, and practically being Twilight-saga for males.

On DeathNote: it was good until the mid of the story, when L dies. That's the point the series should have ended. But for money they wrote it further, what makes it a disappointment.

You might want to get that last part of the post about Death Note removed or changed by a mod, there are a couple of people on here who have mentioned that they are watching it and it would be a shame if they saw the same spoiler I did.

Anywho, Castle is just awful in all ways imaginable. It started off okay but it turned into the most predictable and cliche show ever.

The story kind of went downhill from there, but it is based on the manga which was done for artistic reasons. If you don't like [SPOILER], there is an alternate version.
