    Though two more seasons would have been nice, the fans deserved at least one more round just for being faithful to the show..
    HBO is paying the piper now for such stupid mistakes.

    HBO was once a three to four hour Sunday night staple. Now I occasionally glance at a minute or two of Girls or whatever offering is running and loose interest quickly..

    Right now I'm following Vikings and The Americans and wrapping up the preposterous Banshee.

    The non-finale to Deadwood is definitely near the top of my pissed off TV moments. It really needed a lot more but damn, they could've at least hooked up a movie. Damn shame they didn't end that show right.

    I loved Al's inspiring talks with Merrick, almost as much as his talks with Farnham..

    How is Vikings? I missed the premiere at the start of the month, but would gladly play catch-up if it's a quality show.

    If the folks that make Sons of Anarchy remade Valhalla Rising it would look a lot like this.
    Leaning more towards the "a fight in every episode" angle rather than true drama but I like the characters so far. It's been three episodes..

    I watched all three episodes tonight, and your description is perfect. Even the character dynamics are really similar so far.
