Television Watch List
I've certainly seen more than this, but I figured I'd update this list with some of my thoughts for the TV series I've watched and am currently watching.
Star Trek: The Next Generation
The quintessential Star Trek. It was an amazing series that I constantly get more out of everytime I re-watch it
Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey were amazing in this.
I’m really not happy how this ended up in terms of the book versus the series. It was doing so well, but unfortunately it did not end well.
I loved the way the show's creators brought about Sherlock Holmes meets New York City.
This was a fantastic series. Did a pretty good job with matching the books, but sadly it ended too soon.
Enjoyed the character interaction between everyone.
Game of Thrones
I really wish I could separate this between what was written and what was made up. The first several seasons were amazing. The last few...not so much.
I enjoyed the show. John Krasinski, Wendell Pierce, & Michael Kelly were a great trio. Ryan’s character felt a bit more action-y than the books, but it still hit a lot of the intrigue you expect from Clancy writing and adaptations.
While I'm not quite sure I understood the ending, this was a fun series to watch.
Meltdown: Three Mile Island
While I'm sure there's truth to parts of this, it sometimes felt a little bit more on the conspiracy theory side.
A great mix of humanity and humor with a good cast.
This was a great way to bridge Revenge of the Sith with A New Hope. It was nice to see Ewan McGregor back as Obi-Wan.
The first seasons were definitely the best, but it was a fantastic series with a great mix of humor.
Parks and Recreation
Nick Offerman and Amy Poehler really made this. Would highly recommend as it's a great mix of humor and good story telling
Person of Interest
The cast for this was amazing and the story was always keeping things interesting.
This was a phenomenal documentary series on Teddy, FDR & Eleanor. I learned quite a bit about their lives, what they went through, and some of the “why” they did what they did.
Salt Fat Acid Heat
This was an interesting documentary on some of the foundations of cooking. I wish there was a little more info on the recipes she cooked for the show, but that might be related towards buying the book.
I loved this show. Was funny and probably gave a better idea of how the health system works.
This was a fantastic interpretation of Sherlock Holmes. Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Martin Freeman are amazing.
The series where it all began and what got me into Star Trek. Some of the effects are corny for today's standards, but the series still holds up
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
This by far is my favorite Star Trek series. The way the characters are developed is amazing and there are so many great stories within the series. It was also the first Star Trek series to have a full storyline.
Star Trek: Enterprise
I recently watched this again with my wife. It reminded me how much it sucked that it was cancelled after only 4 seasons. They could've done so much more. The first two seasons were shaky, but it finished strong and was still a good series.
Star Trek: Picard
The 3rd season was definitely the best. So much nostalgia with a good story. I enjoyed the first 2 seasons, but they didn't match what season 3 brought to the screen.
Star Trek: Voyager
I enjoyed this series. They could have done more with the stranded part making it a little more rough, but the cast and series worked well.
