No... Terra Nova's live-action, Andy. It has loads of CGI usage, but it's definitely a live-action show.

Well, I just watched two episodes and so far nothing remotely interesting to keep me from watching it. A good plot with poor executions.

I am watching CSI: Miami which is one of the best crime shows I have ever watched. And I watch a lot of crime shows.

Adventure Time is based in a post-apocalyptic world where Finn is the only human left and Jake is made 'magic' by radioactive waste.

And here I thought Scarf was just randomly advertising haha, there was a reason behind linking me here!

Well, cartoons can get expensive to make depending on the style and quality and whether you outsource it or make it in-country.

I like Adventure Time ...
Anyways, I'd rather keep away from some Fox shows
The only ones I really like are Simpsons, Family Guy and Wilfred. Mainly because I think they're very funny, and I like the plot.

I watched a bit of Wilfred a while back. It was very weird and I didn't understand the ending, but it was really hilarious at points. I hope they make another series or something like that, although I doubt it. Just doesn't seem like they can go anywhere from here, unfortunately.

Emeralds are kinda awesome. More specifically, Does It Look Like I'm Here? is very good and streaming on Spotify. It's very chilled (so chilled that it's completely instrumental) but very electronic at the same time.

Well, they are making a second season, to be announced July next year.
Wilfred has something I like in other shows, like South Park for example, the carelessness about choosing the right words (sometimes);

Terra Nova's going on here, I don't really think it sucks, but I don't particularly like it ...

Terra Nova and Person of Interest were two shows I check out this fall. I saw two episodes of Terra Nova, but thought it was boring. I love Person of Interest though.

I haven't actually checked out PoI yet, might see it sometime
But I don't think I'll like it too much, I like comedy shows better

Boards of Canada is pretty relaxing and I'd also recommend Ulrich Schnauss for the same reason. I think the music speaks for itself. Hope it's what you're looking for.

What channel does Person of Interest come on? Is it CBS? I was recommended to this show by a friend.

Anyone have any recommendations for bands like Gorillaz? Not in the way they sound. I pretty much have a majority of their similar artists in my library. I mean bands that are formed the same way that feature made up characters, but use real people? I don't really know how to explain it. Virtual bands, of sorts?

The only shows I've only really been watching this season is Criminal Minds and Psych, which are both crime shows, and my two favorite ones. It's nice, because since the new episodes air on the same day back to back, I can watch the suspenseful Criminal Minds, and then afterwards watch the more lighthearted and comedic Psych.

Oh, and then there's My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, but that one is more passive than the other two so to speak.

I've heard of Person of Interest though, and I've heard a few good things about it. Not sure which channel it's on.

At the moment I'm listening Skrillex. Skrillex's music is just perfect. All songs are great so just pick one of his songs - I'm sure you like it.

So I recommend Skrillex to everyone.

The Sound of Arrows, if you would consider them electronic. Some group them as dance.

Oh and there is Neon Indian.

CBS on Thursdays. But the season's over now. It's in repeats until it starts up again :(

It's written by Jonathon Nolan, who wrote The Dark Knight. So, if you like that kind of noir, crime feeling... that's basically what the show is. It's like Batman, minus the suit, and with a gun.

LMAO. OK I might have skimmed Melves' post and missed the part where he changed the subject to Terra Nova. I thought we were still talking about Adventure Time :P

Is there any bands that someone can recommend that are like Within Temptation. I know Nightwish and Evanescence are considered to be similar to the band, but I want to know if there are any more. Something more like their older style, and less like they're new style, but something that is similar to their new style would work as well, I suppose. I'm curious to know if there is any similar bands, that have a deep lyrics as Within Temptation.

Also, I'm trying to listen to more English music in general, so if anyone can mention some of their favorite bands/songs that I could check out would be wonderful.

One Brittish band what comes to my mind is Gorillaz. You should try it Binary. Or are you looking for band which music is similiar to Within Temptation?

I'm looking for music that is similar to Within Temptation in specific, but since I'm looking into more English Artists in general, I'll give Gorillaz a shot.

I figured as much, haha. no need for apologizing for just skimming MY post! x( lol >.<

Anyways, there is something I have been wondering. Does anyone watch series such as 90210, One Tree Hill, The O.C, Gossip Girl and other relevant shows -- shows beginning with a high school, romance theme, and stuff like that? I feel I am the only one here who does >.<
