re: What Shows Are You Watching?

Now that I'm caught up with Breaking Bad I need a new show to get obsessed with, I'm thinking Dexter or The Wire, which way should I go?

God I have tired to like the Wire I really have and I live near B-more. I just don't see why folks get so excited about it.

See Wire streaming anywhere?

I think I may pick the biker one on FX, as my next pour into series.

No, but iTunes has it on sale right now, $11.99 for the first season.

Edit: well they did as of yesterday, looks like it's $19.99 again.

Absolutely The Wire! I watch way too much TV but that was probably my favorite series ever.

I've watched Dexter since the beginning and it's okay. I thought the first season was great, the 2nd & 4th were pretty good, and the rest were just so-so.

I think you might be able to get it on your Roku with HBO To Go.

re: What Shows Are You Watching?

It may have already been mentioned in this thread, but did anyone watch Homeland on Showtime? I just watched the whole 1st season OnDemand last week and it's definitely the best new show I've seen in a long time.
Great cast, really good acting and writing, and Claire Danes' character professes to be a huge Redskins fan (it's about the CIA so it mainly takes place in DC) which is a nice bonus. I highly recommend it.

Just had a friend say the same thing!

re: What Shows Are You Watching?

Just started watching Friday Night Lights with Netflix on a whim mainly because I have a crush on Connie Britton dating back to her days on Spin City. Turns out I may have stumbled onto one of the better shows on TV (the 8.6 user rating on IMDB seems to confirm that).

Also nice to see a portrayal of High School Football using players that actually look like they belong in High School, as opposed to the Hollywood versions where players are all at least 6'1 and growing facial hair.

Some other gems you have missed since moving out of your cave:
Taxi
Cheers
MASH
Cosby Show
Dallas
ETC...

Wait a minute. Why do I get flack for not following a show that aired for 3 seasons on some random DirectTV network because it was facing cancellation and having it's Achilles heel being viewership?

You're in for a treat my friend. One of the better TV Series I've ever had the pleasure of watching. Great television.

AMC is developing a series based on GoodFellas. Can't wait for that one.
