Whole TV series you can or have watched over and over again (not comedies)

Which whole TV series, can you watch over and over again?

They're running Six Feet Under on TV here again and I must have seen the whole thing three times over the years and I'm surprised at myself that I'm considering giving it yet another shot.

Are there whole TV series you've watched all the way through more than say, twice?

(I exclude comedies because lots of people watch them over and over).

{quote]I just rented the first DVD of Rich Man Poor Man...I wonder if it will be good?

Yes, very watchable. I saw it originally and have watched the DVD twice.

OP, here...I wish I'd asked how many times.

If any of the above posters check back in, will you say (roughly) how many times? Especially the real multiples.

I'd like to add Once & Again. Weirdly the second time I watched it I had no recollection of the first time. Maybe because I was a big pot head at the time. I'm also preparing to watch it for the third time after being transfixed by an episode on youtube a few days ago.

& a British '70s TV series called Bouquet Of Barbed Wire, about a father's incestuous obsession with his own daughter. Stunningly re-watchable. I'll post a clip below.

& I've watched Upstairs Downstairs several times over the years and thirtysomething a few times all the way through (skipping the episodes that focused on the main two characters, whose names I can't remember).

by Anonymousreply 6203/18/2013

Another vote for Six Feet Under. Seems like a lot of us love it. For me, it's comfort food. At the end of every semester in college, after my last final exam, I'd stop and get a six-pack of beer, go home, and watch SFU for hours.

Hi, R70 (OP). Like you, I prefer the earlier seasons of Upstairs Downstairs. And Lady Marjorie was one of my favorite characters, so I was REALLY sad to see her written out. (I wonder if Rachel Gurney regretted her decision to leave.)

One example of what made Lady Marjorie's scenes so touching was the scene where she had to fire cranky old Nanny Webster. She served tea, sat beside her, held her hand, and took all the blame for bringing her into a difficult situation. She was so nice!

R54 You're not alone. I'm 28 and my dad got me into The Rockford Files at an early age too. He bought me the whole series on DVD a few years ago and I watch it over and over again. He also got me into another old '70s show called Vegas. It was about a really hot detective (Robert Urich was the actor's name - a hottie). I love that one too.

Of the more modern shows I watch a lot of Walking Dead, Lost and NCIS.

It would be wonderful to have on DVD, especially if they could include a "making the series" documentary, some interviews, maybe commentary on a couple episodes. We can dream, I guess.

I've seen all seasons of SFU so many times. When they used to have all the seasons ONdemand, I would pick a season every few months.

For a while I didn't have cable, or even a television, so I rented a lot of tv shows and marathoned the dvds on my computer. I got a hold of "Breaking Bad" and was so impressed...I rewatched it fourteen times in a row. All four seasons (I had to download S4 from iTunes).

Dexter is another--I love Michael C. Hall. And in the last year, I rewatched Homeland and Enlightened at least a few times.

I tried to rewatch BSG on Netflix recently---I don't think it held up well the second viewing. Some of it came off really cheesy. Same think with old repeats of Buffy.

R102, I love That Girl. Glad you added that.

I remember hearing that Marlo Thomas is a nightmare in real life and that gave me a case of the sads, cause I adored her on that show.

Oh and as far as Newhart and Suzanne Pleshette go, The series finale of the other Newhart show where he wakes up in bed with Suzanne (Emily) and says he just had the weirdest dream, is seriously one of the most brilliant ways to end a series ever, in TV history.

Newhart is wildly funny. If anyone is a fan, they should check out his old Comedy Albums, if they are still available. Youtube might have some of his old stand up clips as well.

I would be ever so sad to learn that Bob Newhart was a dick in real life

I NEVER tire of "The Sopranos." My all time favorite episode is "Mr. and Mrs. John Sacramoni Request..." (it's the wedding of his daughter Allegra). I LOVED Johnny and Ginny Sac. This episode is just chock full of wonderful details: the fat bride, that over the top wedding and reception, Johnny Sac getting carted off in handcuffs, sobbing, Ginny fainting dead away, with her knee highs exposed. And later that night, Vito slips away to the leather bar while his wife is sitting at home watching IMITATION OF LIFE. Say what you want about "Pine Barrens" and "Long Term Parking" but this episode to me is FLAWLESS.

We are truly in the greatest television era, at no time since its inception has television been as great a medium.

The stories being told now, the acting, the directing, the writing, the production values. It's all becoming very high-caliber.

In the past if you copped to being a tv junkie, you were looked upon with disdain, now everyone's a tv junkie, and with good reason.

Even the way we watch television is evolving with the upward evolution of its quality, we are watching them without commercials or in marathon sessions, and these stories are being molded to be told that way.

I thought it was inspired that Netflix released the entire season of House of Cards all at once, they're keeping up with their audience
