Oh, and for those who don't know it yet, Legend of Korra is back!

For those who don't know what I'm talking about, LoK is the spin-off of Avatar: the Last Airbender. If you've accidentally watched the movie, go scrub your eyes with bleach and watch the series, like you should.
The Last Airbender is a fairly childish series, especially in the beginning. However, it gets heavier and more serious as you advance into the later series. Plus bonus Mark Hamill as evil overlord!

Legend of Korra is a bit more... adult. Sure, it still has some funny moments and comic reliefs almost every 20 seconds, but the plot is more advanced, the scenes are darker, and the ending of the first season? Jeez, not exactly child friendly.

Just go watch it, it's one of the best cartoons I've seen.

You should watch Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

Start watching Workaholics if you want to watch a recent Comedy series, it's great. Big thanks to Panki for getting me to give it a shot.


A single-camera comedy featuring three friends who work together as telemarketers from 9 to 5 and live together from 5 to 9.

The ending makes... sense if you look at the series as a whole. The guy is (apparently) telling his kids how he met their mother, but keeps whining about Robin. Makes sense that's it's all a ruse to explain why he wants to get back together with her.
Still agree with you though. A lot of hoopla for eventually about 5 minutes of climax, that ends in sadness.

~10 episodes of build-up to the wedding, then it's divorce+death+robin again in ~1 episode? C'mon..



Giving 'Sherlock' a try right now.

I know, the last season is one major anti-climax, but the story makes sort of sense.

And Sherlock? Boy, you are in for a wild ride. Only 9 episodes so far (or 10, I forgot), and now it's waiting for 2016 for new episodes.

Whatever you do, don't start Elementary. It's like a cheaper rip off.

Almost done with catching up on Grimm. It's a surprisingly nice series to watch, even though it can get a bit dull sometimes. Definitely recommend this one.

It'll be at the end of the series I guess. Everyone is anticipating that episode, makes sense to keep it for the ending.

Damn I'm jealous. I will never experience the first thrill of watching a new series with Breaking Bad again.

Watched 3 episodes so far, still not really fond of Mad Men. Hope it gets better soon.
