    Recently I tired to watch Game of Thrones, overrated. no many characters that I couldn't understand what was going on,. The only people I knew who they were was the midget , the albino girl and her arab husband.

    Couldn't get into Breaking Bad either, watched several episodes, meh, the finale was good.

    Tried to watch Dexter, some shows were good, but didn't get into it.

    The Wire was good, but then when it got into one year with the gangs I lost interest.

    Daredevil. Maybe I'm too anal, but the artsy dark filming style is still too distracting.

    Scrubs. Horrible.

    Big Bang Theory. Terrible.

    Every reality show. Awful.

    Big Bang Theory, wouldn't watch.

    Scrubs was good, it was the last sitcom that I watched. haven't watched one since them. and I love reality TV.

    Last year's True Detective seemed ponderous, fucking ponderious. Did watch the one with Alexandra Daddario in all of her goodness and the one with M.M. running through the neighborhood at night filmed in real time.

    Tried to get into Aquarius but its so fucking boring. Maybe its because the story is before my time but that shouldn't matter. I don't know.

    The Wire, Mad Men, and Boardwalk Empire. Might give the last one another try.

    The Wire
    was pretty well-made, but still felt like reheated Hill Street Blues leftovers.

    Breaking Bad. Maybe it did get better, but if a show doesn't grab me in the first episode, I'm out.

    I'm just now binge watching Orange is the New Black. I like it well enough (I'm now in the second season), but it really doesn't have any "Holy shit!" moments like The Sopranos and The Walking Dead. I like my "Holy shit!" moments.

    That last season of Boardwalk Empire was rushed (HBO pulled the plug early) and not near as good as the previous seasons, but, all in all, it was pretty damn good.

    Has The Knick started up again?
