Oh shit...I didnt know the new season started. I know this is the last. The creator only wanted to do an 8 episode final season but the network made him do more
i think its still only 8.
in all honesty. no particular order:
im trying to think of my top five shows.
I think there's an 8 season run during the summer, and then if we survive 2012, later in the fall or maybe it's early 2013 the remainder 8 episodes of the final season (season 5) plays.
Sopranos season 2
IMHO they justify themselves!
As for my top 5 shows:
Heh, only 2 of my top 5 are from the US. The rest are UK shows.
I dig Dexter
, but I don't know if it'd make my top 5. Six Feet Under
(also starring Michael C. Hall) probably would, however...
seems like it is really contrived/manipulated and more
like everything else post 9-11/NWO conspiracy wake-up. HBO and Showtime have some quality programming, though, and have ever since The Sopranos
really hit the stage and blew everybody away when that first aired (and on through its run).
will always hold a special place in my television program fondness, as will All in the Family
& the X-Files
, too, were shows I really enjoyed when growing up (or early syndication, such as with Seinfeld
). Arrested Development
was a classic (that'd be great if Ron Howard ever directed the film).
Right now, I'm enjoying/still enjoying Weeds, Nurse Jackie, Californication, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Shameless
and True Blood.
.. The Borgias
and The Tudors
were/are well done period dramas, imo.
was pretty good; The Wire
was excellent and a must-watch (Treme
also very good [same creator as The Wire
and some of the same cast])... House
were some post-4077
medical drama/sitcoms I've enjoyed.
is right up there: maybe even right up there with I Love Lucy
I liked Dave Letterman, too, but he seems a little too pervy and elitist to me now, so I haven't seen him in a while. Talk shows are epic shill-fests, anyhow.
I almost forgot Mr. Show
has potential, too...SNL
hit & miss over the years
& FX's Louie
!...and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia
!! [I guess I should add The Office, 30 Rock
and The League
while I'm mentioning every other television program ever produced])!
Enjoy the show!
(Sorry, Brits-I don't really know your shows. My mom likes Doc Martin
and Are You Being Served
I haven't seen much of them, but I did enjoy a few episodes of Absoultely Fabulous, Black Adder
and Faulty Towers
when I was younger [maybe because I was high]. Oh, and you have the original Office
and Gervais' Extras
! [and, yes-Flying Circus
or anything Monty Python produced was genius. Benny Hill
, not so much...)
