    Spartacus without Andy Whitfield and John Hanna just feels different. In addition I think Season 1 was/is the best (aside from the story line) mainly because the anticipation for the next round of gladiator battles build up excitement. Right now it just feels like its lost a bit of touch.

    Personally, I find Modern Family far funnier than Big Bang Theory, and without the annoying laugh track. Also, Arrested Development was the funniest network sitcom since Seinfeld, and it's also the show that all modern network sitcoms should be measured against.

    The excact same thing happened to Entourage. Started off as a great show, ended up as a shitty one.

    To the History Channels folks: You should check out Rome. Really great show, and the historical accuracy is supposed to be very good. The same thing can be said about John Adams from 2008 as well. That's the best mini-series I've seen since Band of Brothers. It's maybe even better.
    and weeds...and dexter...and himym....and so on.

    who cares about putting out a quality product; it's all about the dollaz yo. which makes gilligan's decision to end breaking bad all the more impressive.

    Just finished watching season 2 of the U.S. version of "Being Human" on Netflix. Highly suggest it for anyone looking for a new show.

    Yes I saw the special and agree about the new companion.

    I also just saw David Tennant will be in a new series called Broadchurch on BBC America sometime this year.

    Community is a fantastic show and is underrated IMO. Smart, witty comedy that you have to watch in order to fully appreciate, a la Arrested Development. The characters really grow on you and Chevy Chase, Donald Glover, Joel McHale, and Ken Jeong all do a fantastic job.

    It took a lot of convincing for me to start it up, but after sticking with it for a couple episodes I was fully hooked. 4th season starts in February. I suggest.

    I'm diggin this new show The Following. Pretty intense violence and gore for a non cable show. Acting is so so, but good story line. Silence of the Lambs for TV.

    Holy shit. That show has me hooked already. If anyone likes psycho serial killer dramas with a good amount of gore this is the show for you. 14 more episodes and an encore showing on Friday night. Highly recommended.

    What network?

    And I agree - Weeds was awesome until like season 5 and Dexter fucking belongs on USA Network.

    Shameless is solid for some ridiculousness, house of lies is ehh. The only shows I'm dying for are breaking bad and mad men.

    I love Community, it strikes me as the same situation as Arrested Development. Witty comedy that isn't really appreciated during its time, it will gain popularity after it's cancelled and on Netflix. It started a little slow, but hit its stride when they stopped trying to make Joel McHale the central character and focus more on the others. He's the most boring of the lot. My favorite is Chevy Chase. I know he's been butting heads the suits behind the scenes, hope he doesn't leave the show before it's cancelled.

    I'm honestly surprised it made it past the filters for reg TV violence and gore. I recorded it too. I'll probably watch it again later this week. I already can't wait for the next episode. Never seen anything like it on reg TV before.

    Love Chase as well. Unfortunately season 4 is only 13 episodes (stupid) and he left after about 10 of them were filmed for bullshit reasons. They weren't filmed in order though so I'm not sure how that'll play out.

    That show is on the way out and it's a damn shame.

    I thought Chase was officially gone from the show? I know he had that whole issue where he dropped the n-word out of anger when he felt they were making his character too racist.

    I'm looking forward to watching The Americans, it looks promising.

    But I've recently started watching The Sopranos, again. I like going back and seeing/understanding what I hadn't the first time around. I find that the really good show (Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empires, Breaking Bad), all need a second viewing, from me.

    True Blood needs to come to a close, and fast. It's just awful, now.
