I don't watch TV anymore, but back then I often watched The X-Files. I heard that they're rebooting it, right?

I no longer watch TV either, but there's a few shows I enjoy watching, mainly cartoons and anime, but also the one man and stand-up comic shows they sometimes air on TV. I used to have a ton of channels with this numeric receptor or something like that, but turns out we're alright with those 3 free over-the-air channels we get from the antenna.

If you want a list, I'd say the shows I enjoy watching are My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Dans une galaxie près de chez vous, The Simpsons, Family Guy, Adventure Time, Regular Show, some other stuff along these lines, and I should probably look at Gravity Falls, Star vs. The Forces of Evil and catch up on Doctor Who. And for anime, I just finished watching Nijichou, it's pretty funny. The random kind of funny. I should probably find something else to watch now.

By the way on which channel does Adventure Time air? I don't have cable because I don't want to spend $30 a month just to watch 30 minutes of TV every 3 month but I am curious if it's on VRAK or Teletoon. I only have 5 over the air channels right now (unless some became cable-only recently) and they were TVA, V, Radio-Canada, Global and T-Qc. I might actually have two TVA channels, but I'm unsure.
Title: Re: What series do you watch?
Post by: Juju on January 30, 2015, 05:44:48 am
It's on Teletoon. Vrak became more and more uninteresting over the years. Maybe because I grew up and became an adult now, but I guess that might only be part of the answer. Or not at all. They still have SpongeBob SquarePants, though, last time I checked.

Well when Astral bought Canal Famille they pretty much ran it into the ground by replacing every classic made in Quebec with reruns and American stuff, to the point where some months they would only play 1 style of TV show, such as horror, then comedy, etc. One day, the channel suddenly got replaced with VRAK.tv and people miss Canal Famille. Even back then VRAK was sub-par compared to Canal Famille. However, at least VRAK.tv isn't a paid channel like Teletoon.


V, back when it was called TQS, also had interesting TV shows, but most cartoon-based ones were re-runs that looped for decades.
Title: Re: What series do you watch?
Post by: Juju on January 30, 2015, 07:14:58 am
Vrak TV is now aimed for those teens who like One Direction and stuff. It's kind of weird and totally diverged from Canal Famille and to a lesser extent the first years of Vrak. They had programming for pre-school kids once but I think they stopped. They also aired reruns of Dans une Galaxie and Radio Enfer for the longest time, I think they also recently stopped and it's now aired on Prise 2. And I think it's paid now, at least on satellite/numerical TV.

TVA airs Road Runner and Bugs Bunny (the recent ones), and I think it's pretty much the only cartoons they air.
Title: Re: What series do you watch?
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on January 30, 2015, 07:21:57 am
Wait what?? Did they sink that low? Back then it was for kids and the shows for older people were family-oriented. It reminds me back when Pokémon was aired at TQS and every commercial break had Baby Spice (former band that was like Spice Girls/Britney Spears but more annoying) DVD/VHS ads like if they wanted to convert every kid to crappy pop music and hypersexualisation. >.<


Also I didn't know they still made new Bugs Bunny cartoons. I thought they stopped in the early 70's or so. Also TVA used to air Sailor Moon during morning and Beetlejuice cartoons in the mid 90's.
Title: Re: What series do you watch?
Post by: Juju on January 30, 2015, 07:49:55 am
Yeah, been a while I watched Vrak but I think it's pretty much the lowest they can sink.

And yeah, they made a new Looney Tunes show back in 2011 in glorious High Definition called, well, The Looney Tunes Show and it was pretty good. It's more a sitcom taking place in a modern setting than the funny stuff of the early 70's, but still it's pretty good. And funny.

Earlier I watched Roadrunner cartoons from 2010. They were quite funny, but the 2000 ones were crap IMHO. The 2011 ones seemed to not be too bad.

How It's Made and MythBusters are about the only things I follow now.

Commercial TV is mostly too unpleasant for me to deal with nowadays, and having to use a cable box/DVR programmed by "developers" who couldn't write a Hello World program in BASIC correctly, even more so.

If I want to watch something, I usually just browse YouTube or something. Or wait until bedtime and see what kind of awesome dreams my mind comes up with; they're always good. :P

I just watch Discovery for these two shows. The most of time I get away with Top Gear (the GB version, because I love british humour and the presentators) on RMC Decouverte/Nat Geo(?) or Face Off on Numero 31 (one of the new frnach national channels. Something almost never watched around there...)

Yeah the main issue over here is that nowadays it's about 20 minutes of TV shows and 10 of commercials, if not 15. Plus a lot of new TV shows are low quality and often just dubs of other crappy American shows because they lack the budget to make Quebec-based shows anymore.

Also it's possible that in a few years they will terminate over-the-air TV (which is what I have) and force everyone to spend $35 per month on basic cable TV. I don't want to spend $35 a month just to watch TV one hour per month right now. If I want a TV show that only airs on cable TV I'll just buy the DVDs when they go on sale, and in my case, the only TV show DVD package I bought in the last 5 years or so was The Mysterious Cities of Gold Season 2.

Is Top Gear related to the car racing game for the Super Nintendo and Nintendo 64?
Title: Re: What series do you watch?
Post by: Duke "Tape" Eiyeron on February 09, 2015, 05:38:00 pm
I don't know, there is 20 seasons and the oldest of the presentator trio could have played on the magnavox while having a job... I suppose no.
Title: Re: What series do you watch?
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on February 10, 2015, 05:46:53 am
Although if there are 20 seasons, then that pretty much puts the series original season year on-par with Top Gear SNES release. The racing game came out in 1992 and there were two other SNES games afterward, as well as two or three Nintendo 64 games. Maybe the origins were related? After all, it seems to be about cars, according to wikipedia. :P

Not related, the SNES game is a port of Lotus turbo Challenge 2.
Title: Re: What series do you watch?
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on February 11, 2015, 01:32:47 am
Wait it is? O.O Could this be why there is a Top Gear 2 for the Sega Mega Drive, but no Top Gear 1? Also IIRC the Mega Drive version of Top Gear 2 is much lower quality than the SNES one since there is no sound effect and graphics aren't as good. It almost seemed like a pirate game at times. >.<
Title: Re: What series do you watch?
Post by: Duke "Tape" Eiyeron on February 11, 2015, 08:50:49 am
Heh, the Megadrive hadn't as much good games as the SNES. I have the feeling that a lot of them are quite rushed through dev'ment for them. That and their lower-than-average FM musics...
Title: Re: What series do you watch?
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on February 11, 2015, 12:13:43 pm
Erm, it had several many good games actually. I don't know for Europe but at least in USA/Canada there were many. IIRC the console over here outsold the SNES in its early years. A lot of Sega Genesis games have better sounding audio because they made most of the use of the soundchip and sometimes graphics looked more colorful. On the other hand, there were some jobs that got horribly done like Top Gear 2 and arguably the music in Battletoads Double Dragon. It really depended of the game. However, as an RPG fan I much prefered the SNES over the Genesis because there was much more choice.

So my favorite series that I unfrequently watch are:
- The Simpsons (sometimes on TV)
- Star Trek: Voyager (via Amazon Prime Instant Video; and my brother has all episodes on DVDs)
- The Ben Heck Show (Webshow; YouTube)
- Ashens (Webshow; YouTube)
- Tinkernut & EEVBlog (Webshow, YouTube, very unfrequently)

I watched earlier:
- Futurama (still like it quite a lot; but it is no longer on german TV and I don't want to watch illegal streams)
- South Park (I was (and still am inactive) admin of the german South Park wiki; although it sucks)
- SpongeBob (some years ago; with 7 or 8 years)
- Fairily Odd Parents (with 8 or 9 years)
- Some german YouTube channels (german youtube channels really do suck)

Add me to the "don't watch TV anymore" croud, but I am an avid DVD collector.  Some of the series i have so far are the following...

My list also includes some stand-up comics (Brian Regan, Carlos Mencia, Lewis Black, Frank Caliendo) a few anime movies (Street Fighter, Fatal Fury, Battle Arena Toshinden), and all of Homestar Runner's DVDS (Except "Everything Else 3"... which is no longer available on their website store).  Obviously when I have the extra cash I add onto my existing collection (like Archer for example)

Also inb4 "y no NetFlix?" because 1. I don't have an account (nor will I have a need to make one) and 2. I rather have physical copies when it comes to tv shows/movies

I watched it, it's awesome~

I'm not really fond of DVDs and physical copies, and I hardly watch TV anymore either (last time I turned the TV on it was a NHL expansion special on the sports channel, you know, the kind of thing you tweet what's happening at the same time for your followers, and even then it was on my grandma's TV provider's website you can watch the channels on internet, it's pretty nice). All I have is DTV with antenna, Netflix, that one website I watch my anime and cartoons on, oh and YouTube which is an infinite source of interesting content on anything.

So what's I'm currently watching right now, Bananya (cute anime with kittens inside bananas, but it's like 3 minutes/episode), My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and I'm waiting for more of Rick and Morty. I should pick up another show, I don't watch a lot of them right now. Or I should start writing my own, would be nice.

I'd love to get my hands on Homestar Runner DVDs, love that show, and I listened to some Brian Regan the other day (I love stand-up comics, but I don't really check the English-speaking ones), that was pretty funny. (There's a ponified version of course, but it's so great~ (https://youtube.com/watch?v=GXJjZjl6Y_4))

The story of NGNL is as great as the one of SAO but sadly NGNL stoped after a couple of episodes, still waiting for them to release more episodes... :( (same with AttackOnTitan...)
But I'd say these few episodes were definitelsyy worth watching ^^

Just read a summary... Is K-On seriously about a girl struggeling to find her place in a girls band since she cant play any instruments...? Sounds a little bit lame to me...

Got to watch Bananya :D

It's not a drama, Yui is not 'struggling' to find her place in the music club. That plot is more like Clannad's :P K-On is really light hearted and humorous and cheesy, very easy to digest. 10/10 recommend.

Also I recently stumbled upon an anime callen Ajin which I can recommend. I only watched the first few episodes yet but it's got a really interesting story:
Some people around the globe are suddenly immortals without anyone knowing why (you cant find out until you die (like in an accident) and suddenly you revive again). So the govs hunt these people to get behind their secrets. ^^
A bit bloody but nice action ^^ 9/10  :thumbsup:

Title: Re: What series do you watch?
Post by: Juju on October 03, 2016, 12:27:53 pm
Japanese animators and mangakas often goes to great lengths to add as much realism as possible, so much the drawn backgrounds look indistinguishable from real life, for example. Or from CG graphics.

Ajin does look weird, though, but I guess it's their stylistic choice.

My Neighbor Totoro is an excellent movie and I should watch more Ghibli movies. Speaking of which, I have a poster hung up on my wall with this scene Totoro waits for the bus with the girl. Except it's a bear. And a friend of the girl in my avatar. In my city. (http://omegadez.deviantart.com/art/Waiting-in-the-Rain-481099660)

I started watching a new anime called Kabaneri Of The Iron Fortress:
It's made by the creators of Atack On Titan so the graphics is just a awesome, too.
But the plot is a bit different as it's zombie-like creatures threatening mankind.
I can REALLY recomend watching it!
A bit bloody but great graphics, super coo story, epic music! 10/10  :thumbsup:

okey I've ben a few more anime and I thought I should share my thoughts with you:

Tokyo Ghoul:
A bit bloody, very interesting story set. there are ghouls with special fighting abilities that have to feed from human flesh and blood. The main character is attaked by one but the attacker gets killed in an acident and hes baldy injured, too. They transplant her inner organs into him in order to save his live, what makes him partially human and partially ghoul.
The graphics isn't too bad, nor the music. Pretty much the average. 8 / 10

Hellsing:
A bit bloody, too, but again something really nice: Vampires exist but it's not just a regular humans VS vampires, its catholics VS hellsing family VS vampires: The Hellsing family has accepted taking in vampires to fight against vampires, while the vatican just wants to kill all vampires and never negotiates with them, so its three partys everyon against everyone. The main character is a girl that was wounded in a vampire hunt by the hellsing family's vampire when she was taken captive by a vampire. In order to save her live she was turned into a vampire, too, fighting for the hellsing family now. The series is from 1996 (iirc) and you can really see that... so the graphics is a bit crappy (like the original dragonball series in case you watched it) but the characters are truely awesome, music is pretty good, too. 8.5 / 10

The Future Diary:
Holy s***, that's a hard one... If you have watched Akame Ga Kill you probably understand what I mean... It's hard to watch it, you permanently have the feeling you should stop watching, but you can't. It's awesome (creepy) characters, twisted plots, bloody messes, and a genious storyline all together in one anime, together with a good bottle of psychic weirdness... Story: a couple of random guys get information about the future on thei phones that updates each time something changes. it's a last-one-standing death match as the winner is going to become the new king about time and space (that sounds weird, but its really done a cool way in the series). So basically a number of psychos trying to kill the main character, relations between characters, psychic unstable people all over the place, ... really nice ^^ 8.5 / 10

God eater:
The world is overrun by monsters and only special weapons made of living cells rom monsters can kill them. awesome endgame-scenario with really nice characters and a lot of fancy weaponry. nice to watch, I like the story. 7.5 / 10

@DJ Omnimaga where am I supposed to put reviews for 18+ animes? ^^ (more pr0n than ecchi as well as intense violent ones)

Yeah, um, reminds me we have no saucy/lewd/nsfw/18+ subforum, shall we?
Title: Re: What series do you watch?

threads with 18+ // nsfw content are marked as such, but I thought it would suck to mark an entire thread nsfw because of one single post... :/ Should we use spoilers with the title NSFW to mark such content...?
(would be cool if they were invisible to anyone <18yo but that'd be hard to do I guess

It'd actually be nice if there's a member group that would be set according to your DOB you set in your profile.

The main issue is that some users might use a fake age or might not be willing to have such content visible and thus, be forced to put in a fake age under 18. That could cause some issues with people getting the site blacklisted at schools and stuff, or worse, on search engines and crawlers (which happened several times to Omni, although we suspect that some people might have flagged it manually). Which is why I was always reluctant about having such board. Such addition would require a public vote. Also I still think that such section should only allow discussing 18+ material (eg how you liked some ecchi animes), not share pictures or videos containing blatant pr0nographic material. There are other sites for that

no I only had ecchi anime in mind nothing too serious. but as there are 18+ ecchis, too, I thought it'd be a good idea not to post anything ecchi related ^^

Yeah, well, I never intend allowing straight out posting pr0n here, ever. But yeah, might be interesting to discuss about those.

and that was my question again: special marked topic? NSFW-spoilers? how to add them? ^^
