What to watch on TV

Some people say the world revolves around more than fantasy baseball. If you feel like discussing anything else, post it here.

I admit that a couple of their shows are way out there, the DNA one comes to mind, but overall its been a decent series.

I've watched some but it is so far out there I can't take a whole episode.

I'll get in a mood and watch 4 or 5 in a row and then forget about it for a few months. Bourdain is very entertaining.

I've given up on the office. If has been getting worst the last few seasons and after the first episode this year I made the cut.

I haven't seen every single episode of the US version of The Office to give a perfect assessment, a few episodes here and there of each season. I find it as enjoyable as the original UK version of The Office for different reasons. Judging from the more recent episodes I've seen, the quality doesn't seem quite as good from the first 4 seasons.

Watching The Office (US) from start to finish is on my TV to-do list. I'm more familiar with the original Office and deem it to be superior.

The two shows definitely took different paths. While I liked the UK version, there were way too many times that I found myself trying hard just to decipher the accents. Its not that big of a deal for Benny Hill comedy, but certainly takes away from the type of humor The Office had.

Making out the accents or the pronunciation? If the latter, I usually just turn up my TV. Deciphering between the different English accents is fun but involves exposure and time to figure it out. Getting used to British colloquialisms is more of a challenge than the accents IMO, but I don't find The Office particularly challenging in that aspect either.

I don't think the accents detract from the humor, really. Then again, I'm probably more accustomed to English accents and the slang than some, but even I have trouble understanding Northeast and some Manchester/Liverpool accents.

The Office is terrible this season. I'll probably abandon it, which is hard to do after investing so much time with the same characters, but it's really not funny at all anymore. I still like going back and watching the first 3 seasons. I might start watching Parks & Rec again. I stopped after the first season or two since I wasn't that impressed, but have heard a lot of good things about it.

Anybody a fan of The Wire?
Heard great things about it so I have season 1. Haven't watched it yet, someone told my wife that it would be too violent for her.

I've yet to watch The Wire. It's high on my watch list, but haven't gotten the chance to see it.

I've heard good things as well. Aside from Modern Family and Community, I don't watch much broadcast TV, unless there are rave reviews to make it a must-watch.
