I'm eagerly awaiting the return of Louie and Willfred in a few weeks! Two of the most hilariously depressing shows on television.

Is it old tv shows or the more recent? If it's old:

1. Monty Python
2. Twin peaks
3. Only fools and horses (predictably enugh)
4. You rang m'lord

And if it's more recent:

1. Community
2. The mighty boosh
3. Jamie at home
4. How i met your mother (well old episodes at least)
5. Mythbusters
6. House

Don't even get me started on animated shows.

So Wilfred is good? First time I saw ads for it I was kinda doubtful.

I love it, but it's definitely an acquired taste. It's very bizarre and the characters all walk a very fine line of likability. It is very funny though and it keeps you guessing.

That said it's the sort of show that will likely wear out it's welcome pretty fast if the writers aren't careful. You can only watch Ryan fall for Wilfred's bullshit so many times before you start to wonder why he even bothers. So far they've managed by always keeping things ambiguous, but that's going to start waring thin too eventually.

Game of Thrones is ridiculously addictive. Anyone else watching?

Most of the way through Season One. I wanted to read the book before I saw the show. I'll probably do the same for Season Two since I buy my shows on iTunes and it gets cheaper when the season is over.

Attended a Twin Peaks marathon this weekend. Not sure how I functioned without it in my life.

I guess you missed the opportunity to be fatally affected by it as a kid, and to grow up a weird person. Like um one friend of mine.

My favorite show, Rescue Me, finished up last year. It ended really well so I can't actually complain.

I don't have a lot of shows I make sure to watch on a regular basis, I mostly just stick to those scary Discovery Health shows and silly paranormal ghost shows.

And Matlock.
I fucking love Matlock.

I still think most of Buffy holds up as a really great show.

Mostly I watch awful documentaries though, since they're easy to draw to. My favourites are the ones where police drive really fast, and the one where people had pet monkeys as child substitutes.

Oh, I always get a lot of tv that's not too interesting to draw to... I drew through a lot of Andy Griffith show and Gilligan's Island that way.
Wanted to draw through Weird Science series too, but boobs distracted me.

Yeah, there's this fine line of interesting but not TOO interesting. Find something that skirts that and you're golden.

Read that as "find something that has skirts in it and you're golden."
