    Does Deadwood take a little patience? I watched the first episode and it was pretty boring to be honest.

    Have you seen the season 3 promo for Game of Thrones? March 31st needs to be here!

    Yeah, I heard Asylum is much better, but really? I heard everyone here talking about how insane the finale was.

    I completely disagree about Spartacus. If there is any reason that season 3 and 4 (counting prequel as season 2) has a decline it is the lack of John Hannah (Batiatus) and Viva Bianca (Ilithyia).


    American Horror Story is great "American" horror. It's different and appeals to fans of horror and "weird".


    I'd love to hear all these great shows I'm missing if you think the above two are garbage or turned into garbage.

    Deadwood is not for everyone. I really enjoyed the pilot. It may be that time period or style isn't your thing.

    Ian McShane as Al Sweearengen really makes the shows.

    I don't really watch much TV. Pretty much just the Walking Dead, Dexter(also turned to crap, but I've invested so much time I might as well finish), Breaking Bad and Spartacus.

    The girlfriend has been trying to get me to watch Sons of Anarchy, just haven't had the time to start it.

    I won't say anything to give it away, but I thought it ended really abruptly without any build up through the episode.

    BBC's Sherlock is about the only TV series that holds my interest.

    Only gripe is that the episodes are too long. 90 minutes is a bit much for a tv show... but they do keep them interesting.

    GeronimoJackson,

    Just make sure you are caught up on the first two seasons of Game of Thrones.

    March 31st it will be back and you will be as addicted as the rest of us.

    From that list, all i've heard about is Spartacus and Californication. I've heard good things about both of them, plan to start em. Lol, they say Spartacus is like a hybrid fighting and porn show, can't be all that bad eh? I might start 'cation soon as its already got a lotta seasons out.

    Personally, I recently watched this show called Suits, I found the couple seasons to be pretty good but i'm pissed b/c i defied my own rule of 'never start a show till 4 or 5 seasons are out.'

    If you looking for a show you can get hooked to, its best to find something that has a lotta seasons out already so you don't have to wait, or is over. Entourage I found pretty funny and fits the bill.
