Toxy’s Top 5 TV shows

In the last few years I seem to have gone back to watching a fair amount of Television shows. Prior to that, I really had no interest in anything but news, current affairs and sports. Here’s a quick run down of my favorite TV shows:

 

  1. Nip Tuck – Despite a very poor 3rd Season, the two prior seasons of Nip Tuck were fantastic which earns the show my accolade of best overall TV picture. Raw, nervy and definitely not for the feint hearted, Nip Tuck is a show which constantly pushes the boundaries of comfortable, acceptable television viewing. During the course of it’s 3 seasons, the stories have tackled everything from the obscene to the obscure to the downright taboo. Look out for season 4 debuting this September 5th.
  2. Prison Break – No surprises here. This show is just a thrill a minute…. Enough said.
  3. The Apprentice – Donald Trump’s enormously successful Reality TV Show based on 2 Teams competing against each other in a series of Business Orientated Tasks. One unlucky loser will of course get to hear Donald’s now infamous line ” you’re fired.”

  4. Entourage – A throwaway, testosterone orientated dramedy which always ends way sooner than I would like. It’s about the trials and tribulations of a bunch of best friends living in L.A – one of whom happens to be a huge Hollywood actor. After an episode of this show, I always questioned why I never ventured into Hollywood!
  5. The Shield – An ultra gritty crime show about a group of highly corrupt L.A. Cops. A very eerie, very powerful and ultimately very disturbing look at the grey areas of being an L.A. Cop.

    Hate to say it, but Desperate Housewives has to be one of the best shows I’ve seen in years. Tried to get season 3 of Nip/Tuck in Bangkok last week but the copies aren’t out yet…. disappointed to hear you think it’s not great. And where’s LITTLE BRITAIN or THE OFFICE? They rock.

    Although I was a huge fan of 24 when it first started, after last season, I am wondering whether I should watch this coming season or not…
