    I need something new to watch. I'm almost through with second season of Homeland. I'm looking for something else that's kinda fast-paced and tense.

    I tried to watch "24" and "Southland", but I couldn't get into those shows. I already saw Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy and Dexter all the way through. So don't bother with those.

    HIT AND MISS, from Paul Abbott, creator of Shameless and State of Play, is a high concept and ambitious new series that follows Chloë Sevigny as Mia, a contract killer with a secret: shes a transgender woman. Mias life is sent into a tailspin when she receives a letter from an ex-girlfriend dying from cancer revealing that Mia fathered a son eleven years ago. Faced with a difficult decision, Mia becomes the guardian to a new family forcing her to mix her killer instincts with her newly developing maternal instincts. HIT AND MISS tells the story of a lethal killer at the heart of a troubled family and how all of their lives will be dramatically changed forever.

    Already watching Justified, love it.

    I don't like horror shit. It fucks with my head. I'm also not into fantasy/vampire horse shit.

    That looks weird as fuck. Is there a lot of drama in that show? I like the premise of a contract killer but the whole complicated story about cancer and transgender shit turns me off kinda.


    Any of you watch The Wire? I heard a lot of good stuff about that as well.

    Agreed. I think I've watched all of them at least 5 times. Never gets old.
