So I find myself at an impasse as to what I should be watching these days. I generally have the same rotation of shows and am running out of stuff to watch and was curious as to what other people watched.

Things i've watched once/more than once;

Breaking Bad - (4-5x)
Sopranos (20+ x)
How I met your mother (3-4x)
King of the Hill (sporadic eps)
House of Cards (once)
Sons of Anarchy (8+ x)
The Office (20+ x)
Star Trek(TNG/DS9) (3-4x)

As you can see, I am pretty comfortable watching the same rotation but I was curious if anyone else had any "must watch TV" as doing the rotations on some of these shows is getting mighty old haha.

So what's some of your favorite shows not mentioned?

Bojack Horseman - if you want to simultaneously want to better yourself but also feel its pointless
Black Mirror - its amazing and super depressing and also crazy
Twin Peaks - its a great show and coming back soon
The Wire - cause everyone says you should
Anthony Bourdains: A cook's tour - at an honest look at the foods of other cultures, i am currently watching this one.
Arrested Development - a show you can watch 10+ times and still notice new funny things.
Cuckoo - its a decently funny show
Planet Earth - the world is a wonderful thing
Departures - it gives you the wanderlust of the world and from the perceptive of 2 canadians
Futurama - I lost track of how many times i re-watched this
Burn Notice - I have only recently started watching and I like it..also Bruce Campbell is in it
Meat Eater - a guy who hunts and eats animals...like from everwhere, he cooks a boar in its own stomach
Californication - boobs and david duchovn, what is not to love

Some good recommendations there. I actually left hte wire off my list by accident, seen that show quite a few times as well, so good.

Watching the colony right now on ep3, so far so good.

As for Marvel shows, the only one I really got into was Luke Cage, everything else was kind of meh for me but i'd be open to giving them a shot. Vikings was a bit too rapey for me, it's not that I am this bleeding heart or anything, it's just like every other scene is a rape scene and it gets old fast lol.

Keep em comin guys!

which season? I'm pretty sure I made it all the way through S1 and a part of S2 and that was enough for me.
