10 Great Television Shows I Still Need To Watch

Over the years I have devoted a lot of my time to television shows. Though I no longer watch 30 shows a week (there was a moment in time where that was the number!), I still spend quite a lot of time on them but I have so far only scratched the surface.

  1. wait wait WAIT – you haven’t seen Hannibal yet? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!!

    As far as the other shows go: hardcore Mad Men fan here, so yeah; I finished Sons of Anarchy! There are highs and lows on that one, but it’s cool overall. I didn’t finish Boardwalk Empire, kinda lost interest towards the end… though I’ll definitely finish it. Someday.

    I haven’t seen The Wire nor Twin Peaks either. I think we really should remedy that.

    1. I wanted to start Hannibal again, as you might know, but I couldn’t AGAIN get passed the first couple of episodes. I just couldn’t. I will try again soon, but I don’t feel like watching it at the moment either.

      I think I want to watch Sons of Anarchy, I did finish the first season so I mean, I’m almost into it.

  2. Lots of good stuff here – Peaky Blinders is so good in season 1 and season 2 has Hardy! πŸ™‚ But watch Twin Peaks first it is classic!

    BTW the site looks awesome!

    1. Hah. I have Twin Peaks at hand.. so I could just watch that. And well, who could say no to Tom Hardy?

      Thanks! I’m happy how it looks as well.

  3. Oh man, Twin Peaks is seriously my favourite tv show in the universe. I hope you get to see it soon! Meanwhile, Mad Men, Hannibal and Fargo are all amazing, and The Wire is actually a work of art. So much great television for you to watch!

  4. So many of these are on my to-watch list too. I’ve watched the pilot to Twin Peaks three times, but I’ve never gotten further than that. I really need to buckle down and actually watch the show!

    1. I have watched the pilot once as well, and I think I will get into it, once I sit down and watch all of it in one day! That’s how I usually watch things, and then it’s two weeks later and I don’t know what I have been doing with my life.
