Breaking Bad (waiting, still waiting!)

Deadwood (don't watch the last episode)

Spartacus: Blood And Sand (violence, blood, and nudity)

The Wire (still great)

Curb Your Enthusiasm (funny)

Arrested Development (funny)

Can't believe Rescue Me hasn't been mentioned! That's the best show I have ever seen.

Samcro was good but remember someone here bad-mouthing it - I thought it was good though.

Finished season 1 of Walking Dead this week which wasn't bad. THe lead guy is a United supporter too.

Game of Thrones is worth a watch for the head-chopping and naked wench action. It's doing wonders for the employment opportunities of Brit-actors if nothing else...

game of thrones first episode was true to the books, more or less, and also has bean in it, so that's cool...can't vouch for the series, though.

Unnecessarily harsh. Spartacus is tits and violence, it is what it is. Rome was ok, but they pulled the plug, instead of the planned 5 seasons there is only two with the story for the 3rd and 4th crammed into the last few episodes of season two. Shame as this award winning project ended up a hurried mess, there was a lot of disappointment because of this over here. Why not watch both eh?

Californication. (Loosely) Based on a weird combination of the lives of Hank Chinaski (from Bukowski's Factotum) and Warren Zevon, with a healthy dose of modern hipster (can't believe I just used that term, never again) humor. Should incite much laughter, or disgust, depending on what you're looking for in a show. But if diggum Samcro, may well diggum Californication.

Reruns of "The Rifleman" (1958-1963) and "Combat!" (1962-1967).

Oh...and anytime a PBS (Public Broadcasting Service/USA) affiliate puts Brit-coms, such as "Fawlty Towers (John Cleese) and "Black Adder" (Rowan Atkinson), into heavy rotation.

We've recently taken on a boarder who happens to be a 21 yr old female. This has tipped the voting balance in the house to the estrogen side and I now get to watch such thrilling shows as "The Batchlorette", and "The Kardashians", as well as the Enews! channel and anything with a red carpet in it. If I didn't have beer I would hang myself from the satellite dish to mess up the signal.
