    I plan on rewatching every episode about a week before it returns.

    If you're looking for a show to get hooked on...

    Breaking Bad all the way. Two summers ago, I watched the first three seasons in like a week, and I'm usually not one to sit down and watch TV for more than an hour at a time - which is why I rarely watch movies anymore.

    There were times I just couldn't stop watching. I'd start at like 8pm, and next thing I knew it was 2am. Even if I needed to be up at 8am, I'd keep watching until 4am sometimes.

    Acceptable. Still, I think your criticism of Spartacus and American Horror Story are too harsh.

    How can you not like the new villain in Spartacus? He has a great on screen presence.

    And American Horror Story, Cromwell was fantastic last season. As was the actress that played the possessed nun.


    Maybe the better question is why aren't you watching BoardWalk Empire, Shamelss, Californication, and most importantly Game of Thrones?

    If you consider yourself a sci-fi nerd at all, or enjoy sci-fi in general... Firefly (and the follow up movie Serenity) are must watches.

    I don't watch too much TV, but I def hear what your saying.

    As for BB, its at the top of the list for sure. A while ago (er quite a while ago) saw like two random episodes in the middle of IDN what season, looks epic. I also remember alotta ppl saying the exact same thing bout stayin up all night when they first started watching it.

    I know whats going to happen if I start it, could be dangerous... I've actually avoided downloading it or taking it from anybody, from strait fear. That show has ma addiction written all over it.

    I definitely intended to watch Shameless when it first started, but I forgot to set the DVR and just haven't gotten around to watching it since.

    I'm going to start watching The Sopranos and The Wire before anything new. My parents wouldn't let me watch those when they were running because I was too young. Stupid good parenting...

    Probably not, both Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica were a snoozefest for me lol.
