I strongly urge everyone to watch "An Idiot Abroad" on The Science Channel........Karl Pilkington might be the funniest guy on TV, and hey, it's got Ricky Gervais in it, so it has to be good.....and it is. I didn't even know about until a couple weeks ago, and probably because it's on The Science Channel, but a friend turned me on to it, so I caught a marathon on my DVR and got caught up. The second link below is the upcoming schedule for it.....set your DVR's.

I've seen the commercials for this and it looks interesting. I'll check it out!

It was great. But all the episodes have already aired, so anything coming up is a rerun.

Haven't heard of it but am definitely interested in new tv programming.

Especially now that sports world has been decimated to NBA playoffs and the big golf tournaments.
why don't you run back to the sandbox where the rest of the kids are playing so the adults can have a discussion...it's over there....you see Howie, he's over there with PMS knocking over other kids sandcastles...looks like fun.

Seth, do you watch Justified?
We like it, FX on Wednesday nights. This is the second season.
We're also almost caught up with Breaking Bad, that's probably the show I look forward to the most right now.

+1

Justified is greatness, and not just because I have a total mancrush on Timothy Olyphant....and Breaking Bad is the best show on TV, provided you can handle dark stuff....REALLY dark stuff.

Love Justified.

Been watching Lights Out too. It's really not that great and the wife SUCKS, but I've invested so much time in it now I'm scared to leave.

I finally started rolling through The Walking Dead on my DVR last weekend. I watched the first episode and wasn't really all that impressed. Do I need to stick with it or is the rest of season 1 more of the same?

I finally got around to finishing season 1 of Breaking Bad. Great stuff. I can't wait for the next season of that and Mad Men.

Walking Dead is okay... it's a shame that it's AMC's best-rated show. I enjoyed it for what it was, but it wasn't as good as Rubicon, which didn't last past one season.

Justified kicks ass.

I'm almost caught up with Breaking Bad. Been watching it since January when they started it back up from the beginning with 2 episodes late every Wednesday night. That show is soooo good.

Well Lights Out got cancelled. They are gonna finish out the season, so I guess I'll stick it out.

Of course, just as I'm getting caught up and starting to really get into Lights Out....it gets cancelled. Same thing happened with Rubicon....except that was a much better show, so I cared a little more when it was cancelled.

That is how we're watching Breaking Bad, Peabody.

Rubicon's cancellation bothered me. Great show.

I'm enjoying Game of Thrones so far. They've done a good job of including stuff from the book that matters and leaving out what doesn't.

It's definitely hooked me, and I wasn't sure if I would like it. I'm often hot/cold on fantasy, but the characterizations of it being more Sopranos, less D&D have been accurate through the first two eps.

Finished watching Game of Thrones last night. Good stuff. I'm about a third of a way through the second book. I'm still enjoying the series, but I can't imagine that this thing stays good throughout the 3,000 some-odd pages of stuff that's already been written that I haven't read plus the two or three books that haven't been written yet (assuming Martin lives long enough to write them).

I still need to catch up on Breaking Bad.
