I’m not being pompous or anything, I’ve been on the website for a few years, it’s time I shared with you something. Feel free to comment what you think. Here’re the series I like:

- Numb3rs (for the scifi and math)
– Southland (for its realism)
– Baywatch (for the fanservice, but most of all, because it looks like you’re serving the greater good, well, just watch it)
– Without a Trace (more emotional than other procedurals)
– Medium (it’s a bit long, but has his moments)
– One Tree Hill (famous at the time, it had a good chemistry between characters)
– Silent Witness (like CSI, but better, long too).

Numbers – the first year – was pretty good. The program went WAY downhill after that, to the point where it wasn’t worth watching.

No opinion on the others.

I’m glad you enjoy them but have no opinion as I’ve never seen any of them.

I liked Numb3rs but didn’t watch it for that long, maybe due to @elbanditoroso‘s comment. Liked Medium, which reminds me I also liked The Mentalist. Didn’t take a lot of thought but was fun.

Out of your list, I’ve NOT seen most for various reasons.I enjoyed the original Baywatch but never really got into the remake. I’m a HUGE fan of Without A Trace & enjoy binge watching whenever possible. If I find Numb3rs available to binge on, I’ll probably try it.

I’m out of it. Never even heard of any of those TV shows. I just watch old movies on the Ruko streamer.

I enjoyed Numb3rs. It’s pretty unrealistic, but when you suspend your disbelief, it’s great geeky fun. Never got into the other shows.

I liked Numbers and Medium. I didn’t watch any of the other ones. I have seen maybe 10 minutes of a Baywatch episode a few times.

My favorites would be Fringe, Counterpart, Big Bang Theory, MASH, just to name a few.

I don’t watch enough TV to have favorites or to judge yours.

I am sure they are fabulous!

What defines a TV show nowadays? The line is so blurred.

Forever_Free's avatar

^^ anything on that “Boob Tube”

cookieman's avatar

^^ Anything that is not released initially in a theater. Cable, streaming service, YouTube — all television.

Viewed on an actual television, phone, tablet, or computer — all television.

@Forever_Free I watch movies on my “boob tube” all the time. Does that make it TV?

@cookieman I’ve seen plenty of movies that were not released in theater. For example “The Tragedy of Macbeth” by Ethan Coen was not released but is clearly a movie. Netflix and Prime release direct to streaming movies all the time.

cookieman's avatar

^^ Oh sure. I guess I think of those as made for Tav movies, but you are correct.

I think I understand liking Without A Trace – I haven’t watched it in a about 20 years, but I enjoyed it.

I’ve never heard of One Tree Hill, Southland, or Silent Witness.

Numb3rs I couldn’t watch more than a few minutes without complaining about how impossibly improbable it seemed. I like the concept well enough, but the writers of whichever episode I tried seemed to have no sense of implausibility. Numbers can’t help solve mysteries, unless the person also has a serious understanding of the subject, and the writers in that episode did not. So it struck me as a betrayal of what I liked about that concept.

I’ve watched a few episodes of Medium. It wasn’t great, but it wasn’t bad. The rest, I haven’t ever seen.

Good point about what a TV show is now. I get confused about it, too. What I think of as movies are often considered TV shows now. I guess in my mind, I will always think of a TV show as a weekly episodic thing, like All in the Family or Baretta or Columbo or ER.
