    Here's a thread for all our TV recommendations.

    And questions about what's worth watching.

    I was browsing the TV series available through Amazon Prime Instant Video, and there's lots there that I'm kinda interested in, but don't know what's worth it.

    For example, is "America: The Story of Us" from the History channel worth watching?

    I liked America... It was a bit pop-culture, but was interesting.

    This thread will turn into an argument about if a show or shows is/are any good, especially controversial ones.

    For me anything I watch regularly is worth watching!! That's about 55 shows on my SP List :)

    If you haven't already seen it, I HIGHLY recommend a show called Day Break starring Taye Diggs. It's only 13 episodes, so it's not a huge commitment. Trust me, you'll love it!
    Another show I'd recommend is The Booth at the End. It's very cool in a Twilight Zone sort of way. There are two seasons with five episodes each.

    At least six of these are not available for free Amazon streaming, but you get a 5 for effort!

    House of Cards is Netflix only (unless you meant the British version).

    The OP never specifically stated that he was only looking for shows on Amazon Prime. If this is the case, then the thread title should be changed to "TV Worth Watching via Amazon Streaming".

    Yeah, as far as I'm concerned It doesn't matter if they're current series, Netflix, Amazon Prime Streaming or whatnot. I just want to know what's worth watching (or not).

    Just a thought - Without any kind of guidelines on what you like and what you've already seen and disliked, this just threatens to turn into a list of every TV show ever.

    Have you ever seen Avatar: The Last Airbender? If not, it should be high on your list. Brilliant show!

    Except for 'Hello, Larry'. Nobody ever thought that was worth watching.

    There are some Hello, Larrys on YouTube. They're really not the worst thing ever. :)

    I think the OP should watch EVERY cat video on You Tube. That should keep you busy for awhile :) Some are actually worth watching!

    Seriously, your one show you mentioned was a historical documentary. Is that something you are generally interested in? If so, some of those worth watching would be:

    World At War
    The War
    Ken Burns The Civil War
    Ken Burns Baseball
    How the States Got their Names (I've only seen a few of these, but many of them are interesting)
    The Presidents

    Obviously not enough people did, but due to my radio background and liking the star I tried to catch what few episodes made it to air.

    Before I watch the rest of it I've got to make sure it doesn't result in a single penny going to ABC.

    I'm not interested in rewarding them for only showing me the first half of the season.

    To be fair, they did make all the episodes available to stream from their website.

    high desert...

    Wait, someone was in that show besides Moon Bloodgood? I never noticed. :D

    It was a very enjoyable show. I never did
    understand the bit around the old guy. Was that supposed to be a hook for possible future episodes?

    Ellicott...
    Downton Abbey
    Luther
    Battlestar Galactica (the latest version, not the original schlock show)
    Seinfeld
    Game of Thrones


    Wasn't Day Break a Groundhog Day ripoff? I can't recall if I stuck with it for the entire season. Each episode was a repeat of the previous week with a few new scenes thrown in as the main character started putting the pieces together.
