I've ripped through Breaking Bad in the last week. I only have two episodes until I'm caught up. If you aren't watching this show you should start.

Finally got caught up Justified.....really like that show, but then again, I really like Tim Olyphant.....especially in a jeans and a cowboy hat....HEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK maybe not, but either way, the show is really good.

And still loving Modern Family....shit cracks me up every week....Phil and Cameron might be the funniest characters on TV right now.

Now that Lost is over, I'm watching Firefly via the magic of Netflix streaming. Breaking Bad is probably up after that.

Did anybody stick with V? I watched the first 5 episodes and didn't watch when it picked back up earlier this year. Is it worth catching up on?

Any other suggestions? Outside of Lost, Mad Men and The Office (I gave up on that somewhere mid-Season 5), I haven't watched a ton of scripted television in the past several years.

What about The Shield?

Did you ever watch The Wire?

Damages is the first and most obvious that comes to mind.......Dexter as well......those might be my favorite two shows on TV.

Kev... V is okay, but I still haven't watched the final two eps.

I would add Big Love to the list of shows mentioned, but it can be very hit or miss.

Negative to both. I seriously doubt The Wire could live up to my expectations given all of the BEST! SHOW! EVAR!!!! talk I've heard about it.

I already somehow know too much about what goes on on Dexter to make it worth watching.

Will investigate Damages.

Also, I guess I should go back and watch the second half of the final season of The Sopranos at some point even though I know how it ends.

We watched every episode of "V". It's so bad. Just awful on so many levels.

With that said, if it fired up again tomorrow night I'd be watching every minute.

I watched the first episode of Breaking Bad last night. Very tense/uncomfortable, but I will watch more.

The first few episodes are excruciating.

Still haven't checked out SoA yet. My wife ran through season 1&2 of Chuck and now she wants me to catch up before season 3 comes out on DVD and season 4 airs. We also just started the Battlestar Galactica miniseries that spawned the series.

Holmes on Homes (HGTV) this guy is smart as hell and good at what he does. I learn stuff watching this show
Top Shot
Income Property (HGTV) interesting show to watch them remodel stuff
Pawn Stars (really entertaining show to watch)
American Pickers
Billy the Exterminator (white trash family fun and entertainment)
Bridezillas (I hate to admit it, but these bitches are hilarious. Karen from Staten Island was the best. I feel sorry for any guy that marries these cunts.

Just watched the second episode. I think this show might be a little too grim for me.

I would really encourage you to stay with it. I felt the exact same way after the first 2-3 episodes. That really is the worst of it.

The new Louis C.K. show on FX is pure greatness.

He's admittedly by far and away my favorite comedian, but I hope some of y'all caught this on FX this week.....if not, I'm sure they'll replay the first two episodes over the weekend and next week, but as expected, it's hilarious......try and catch it if you can.

Yeah, they're replaying the first 2 sunday night, then showing all 3 episodes Tuesday.

Liked the first one a lot, meh on the 2nd one.

I liked both episodes a lot. As a whole, the first episode was stronger, but the poker scene in the second episode is legitimately one of the best scenes I've seen on TV in ages.

FWIW, this scene will be WAAAAAAY too gay for many around these parts, but I agree with you Atl....absolutely classic television scene. Hilarious....thought provoking....well directed.....and a conversation that could happen around a poker table with just about any of us....good stuff.

Thought the first one was greatness. Laughed out loud several times. The second one was funny, but not as good as the first. And then there was this weeks. I was very underwhelmed by this weeks. Seemed like they tried to take a serious turn. Only funny part was the black people tipping thing and that was really only funny to me because they talk about that on BaD radio a lot.

Holy crap. I stumbled upon the Louis CK show on Netflix streaming last night. I watched the first three episodes and can't remember the last time anything on TV/in a movie made me laugh out loud this much. It's only up on the streaming site for a few more days, but I'll be watching the rest on DVD. Fucking greatness.
