Might as well try and see if this works out.
I recently got around to starting Monster,at current speed I might even finish it by the next decade.So,what are you guys watching these days?

Monster, while having some slow parts, is pretty fantastic. I remember loving it.
Paranoia Agent is another great one that I don't hear enough said about...

But if you just want to have wild fun, watch FLCL or even better Dead Leaves. That one's under an hour of hyper kinetic fun.

Actually I did see Paranoia Agent quite a few years ago and I quite liked that one. A strange series to be sure, but ended on a fairly satisfying note. I ended up watching it specifically because someone recommended it to people who were dissatisfied with Lost's failure to resolve its various mysteries.

Im getting a weird urge to rewatch Gundam Wing.
Great everything...except the story.

I've got something of a soft spot for Gundam Wing because it was the first Gundam series I ever saw (I'd never even heard of Gundam until it was announced it would be airing on tv). I've rewatched it once since, but I found it hard to follow the story because it's politics and exposition kinda caused me to zone out.

Compare that to Gundam Seed and Unicorn, those seemed to hold my attention no matter what's going on or what the characters are talking about.

Wing might have been the first Gundam Series I watched, but Seed was the one that I got most attached to. I'm glad they're making a lot of new Gundam material these days, but I find it difficult to keep up (case in point: Unicorn came out in 2014 or so and I still haven't finished it)

Wow. Before Wing they made Gundam, Zeta, Double Zeta, Char's Counterattack, F-91, War in the Pocket, Stardust Memory, Victory, And G Gundam. So they made a LOT of Gundam before they got to Wing, and not counting G and the OVAs, the only one that wasn't Tomino was Wing. So was the problem that they haven't figured out how to do a Gundam tv series without Tomino yet?

Problem was more that they tried to cram the entire original trilogy (MSG,Zeta,CCA) into one series.And lets face it,Wing is melodramatic even by the standards of this franchise.

You forgot ZZ. Though I'm pretty sure Wing did too.
