    Anybody else watching this HBO series? It's been decent so far. I've never really understood how the networks get their stories so fast. It is a nice blend of research/information and drama. Well written monologues also.

    I love it.

    My new favorite show really. By far one of the better shows HBO has put out.

    I give it a 3 out of 5 stars. We have so many bad shows on tv now that when a decent one comes on...we think its awesome. I thinks shows are put together like that on purpose.

    All I know is it will hold me off until the return of Game of Thrones and Veep.

    Also catching up on Boardwalk Empire.

    I've only seen the "We're not" (greatest country) clip and it was enough for me to want to watch it.

    That was a great monologue.

    My only knock on the show is that they often go rapid with the dialogue- kind of like Dragnet in the 60's. It is distracting to me sometimes because people just don't put together that caliber of witty banter that fast.

    I have really wanted to watch this, the commercials make it look great.
