Question Stupid Questions about Dumb TV Shows

PLEASE, Recommend some TV shows !

What are your favorites ?

I can recommend these -

Sons of Anarchy
Breaking Bad
The Closer
Bones
Dexter (terrible ending)

They all have a cops & robbers element, except Bones is more about forensics.

My question about Sons of Anarchy - a motorcycle club with members in California, Oregon & Nevada is importing firearms from Ireland, to California ?!

Why wouldn't they simply smuggle American firearms across state lines ? That seems more logical. But maybe the writers had to sit down with the ATF and get their blessing.

And admittedly, the firearms they were getting from Ireland were Full Auto, worth more to their customers in Oakland than a semi-auto made from American parts.

Also, since Sons of Anarchy was always looking for "ways to earn" - why didn't they grow pot ? They existed before the major price drops that would have made that, less of a good idea.


Anyway, TV shows, despite their flaws, can still be a great way to escape.

I actually laughed at a scene in 'Mom' recently

God, I hate TV....

But I have to admit I watch it about 2 hours or less each night. (Mainly because my wife enjoys it sometimes)

If I lived by myself I wouldn't have a TV in my house..

One of my favorite old songs by Frank Zappa is, "I'm the Slime"... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-sREpqDiUo

but here's a detective show that's OK.... "Bosch", on Amazon TV...

I recommend not watching TV, at all. Have sex, go fishing, or restore an Impala - these are my recommendations.

But after reading some of the serious leaning threads on ICMag everybody is up for some mindless entertainment.

My TV comes via Netflix DVD's.

When I do go to a house that has normal TV, I notice that I am fascinated by the ads. Most of them I've never seen before.

Same- Don't own a TV but I've been sitting in on Westworld with my roommates. If they weren't around, lack of TV wouldn't phase me too much. Gotta give it up for Westworld and Barry, though. Pretty entertaining.

Re: Zappa- Live in New York w/ Don Pardo singing the verse on Slime? Awesome!

Is this a thing? stoners don't watch TV? It would explain a lot. TV is the most important means of propaganda and mind control they have. In fact, it would be enough on its own to explain the ban.

Michael Connelly is a great writer.

He manages to make LA seem like a nice place.

Aside from all the murders that occur there in his books.

Netflix does not seem to be playing nice with Amazon.

Can't get "Bosch" on Netflix yet.

I cut the TV chord atleast 10 years ago.

in that time there have been all of 2 series that have held my attention for more than 15-20 mins. even those i couldn't watch until conclusion, got way too boring for me.

so If you feel like laughing at exaggerated idiocy, Gold rush (gold rush alaska) {aka gold rush parker wins and todd fails}

I can't remember the name of the other show, it was a food network thing.. Anthony bourdain maybe?

Been over 20 years now. Best thing I ever did for myself in life.

Over-Nite Sensation was my favorite Zappa album.
