Lost is the only TV show where I remembered every character's full name by the end of first season. The character arcs and personal stories in that show are still untouched. Just ignore the silly overarching plot.

Characters and all their stories are unmatched. Finale doesn't change nor ruin LOST journey. 

 

Agree 100%. LOST is amazing.

The character arcs started out very well, especially the first two seasons.  But later you start to wonder where exactly were they headed ? The fat guy's number game didn't even make sense towards the end.  Same goes for John lock, Shepard , the Korean couple, Jamie and Kate.  They all start out well, reach a peak after which the story writers ran out of ideas to further them.  

 

Remember that scene where 'the others' are talked about and shown in the beginning seasons ? Towards the season finale they become as inconsequential as the plot itself ! 

 

As I remember, the last good episode was 'the incident', where I thought the show was finally getting it's act together, but, damn, I was disappointed !!

As for list of shows, there are really thousands of shows worth watching. It comes down to what genre you want to watch. These days I only watch comedy shows or re-run older shows.

 

Oh man so much nostalgia in one post 😍

Lost ,smallville, supernatural,heroes season 1 😍

 

Better off Ted and IT crowd are really good ones!

 

11.22.63 is indeed an awesome mini series.

Dirk Gently ....oh man....so good ....why did they cancel it BC :'(

 

Also recently finished a series of unfortunate events.....was really critical about season 1 .....but damn it got so interesting....an amazing narrative series :D

No one watched "The Night Manager" here? So many recommendations - and yet no one even mentioned it's name over here. It was such an amazing show. It's on Amazon Prime Video, and I highly recommend you guys watch it.

 

 

C'mon guys, it has Loki and Dr House plus 8.1 IMDB and 91% RT (89% Audience Score). At least give it a chance.

We did back 2016. Despite very good casting and acting from everyone, it felt rushed. Only 6 episodes and so much happened in last 3 without any proper development. 

 

Heard they are making season 2 but no update on it.

I did and loved it. Because Hugh Laurie is my favorite. Watched it long before it was on Prime Video

Completed a few shows in the past couple of weeks.

 

Mandalorian - Started well and ended well but the whole mid section was just meh. I'm usually fine with filler episodes but pretty much all of these had the same plot structure, which just made them boring and utterly predictable.

 

Witcher - Was quite disappointed with this. I loved the first few episodes but I thought the quality took a bit of a nosedive as the show went along. I guess it was still fairly entertaining though :\

 

Watchmen - Pretty f**king fantastic! Can't believe how quickly I finished this because of how engaging it was. Some really good performances in there too.

 

Also started watching Servant and it's pretty good so far. The premise is quite intriguing and the suspense is making me come back for more.

Mandalorian indeed started and ended good. The middle portion 4-5 episodes sucked. 6 was okay but picked up and episode 7-8 ended very nicely. I hope Favreau is working on season 2 and not someone else. Filoni was terrible. 

 

Witcher was okay (lot of hype from gaming communities as expected). Only watched it for Cavill. Can't stand Yennefer and all her scenes. 🤢🤮 

 

Watchmen - guess I'll watch it this week. Everyone I know said good stuff about it.
