Right now all my major shows are on hiatus or it seems like they might be in their last season come this next seasonal run (or that I might consider leaving if things turn to shit...), and it's kind of sad that I don't have enough to watch these days. So I'm definitely looking for other shows to watch and I've had some on a list already that I've been meaning to check out.
I watched a random episode earlier this year and I really liked what I saw. Fringe has that element of The X-Files which has peaked my interest of having science fiction mysteries and intriguing plot twists and surreal cases. Only from what I've read about it and what I've seen, anyway. I've also heard great things about it from people on my f-list so I'm going to put in some time to download at least the first episode and see how I like the setup from the beginning. I'll let others know when that happens, because I'm sure there's plenty of people that would love to hear my thoughts on the show.
Haven is a new supernatural drama that'll be airing July 9th on the SciFi Channel. It's inspired by one of Stephen King's novels, which if it's anything like it's advertised will definitely be right up my alley of shows. From the previews it is a mixture of Eureka without the comedy element, it has a darker atmosphere with a particular mystery so I can't wait to see what it'll be like.
Since many have recommended it, I've decided to give this show a try. I actually watched the first episode the other day and I thought it was very funny and the setup of the universe was intriguing if anything. Of course, I only know about Avatar: The Last Airbender from what I've read up on it and through the controversy surrounding the live action movie. But from what I've heard the series is quite good, better than some would suspect, and the universe is very well-created from what I've read of the background so, yeah. I'm slowly going to be making my way through the series. I might end up downloading because they rerun the episodes kind of out of order. So far, I'm liking what I'm seeing.
It's interesting because I didn't have the desire to watch this show until most recently, mostly because of what I heard people talking about it (mostly thanks to you, my dear flist). And I have to admit while I didn't watch Stargate extensively I kind of like seeing Amanda Tapping in a different role other than Sam Carter. That, and she looks amazing as a brunette. Also, what I find interesting is that the show has Christopher Heyerdahl who played Alastair in the fourth season of Supernatural! Small world, eh? So yeah, it's kind of gotten my interest recently. I'm definitely planning on checking it out, just to see whether or not I'll like it.
Other shows include: Community, which is a new show that I've seen people rave about, Band of Brothers and Jericho and mostly that's because Richard Speight Jr. is in them, and I plan on watching everything he was in for the sake of it, lol. Nevertheless I've heard great things about both shows, so I'll certainly be looking forward to testing them out. I've also been meaning to watch Deadwood, too. Oh, and Merlin, since post-Legend of the Seeker I need to fill that fantasy-based void, you know?
Wow, that's a lot of shows right there. I didn't realize how much I wanted to see until I wrote it all out, heh. And hey, if anyone else has any other recommendations, feel free to drop them by. I'm willing to give anything a chance if it strikes my interest.
Masterlist of days here.
