TV: what have you been watching?

I think The Walking Dead may be the best drama thats currently airing/in production.

There, I said it.

Ohhhh youuuuu

Also, olympics on all the time when Im home, BBC coverage is fantastic. Michael Jordan is a truly great pundit/commentator.

The only suck is I'm working 12 hour days at the mo, so missing a lot. On the plus side, theyve installed great big TVs in all working areas for the duration of the olympics, so you kind of casually watch all day, albeit no sound.

Re: TV: what have you been watching?

finished watching first four seasons of breaking bad;the show is obv not as good as everyone says it is, but it is still plenty entertaining. All the family drama and skylar's character feel very forced, but the meth part of the story is very good. They also could have told the story at a much slower pace. I'd give it a B++

Just finished watching the Firefly series. Shame that it was cancelled, it is hilariously delightful.

MLB.TV

That's the one. Sam Axe is awesome and I eagerly await the spinoff prequel.

Currently in the middle of Arrested Development. Shame it was cancelled after only three seasons.

You're right! Just read this on Wikipedia. Great news!

Six years after the series had been cancelled by Fox, filming for a revived fourth season began on August 7, 2012. The season will consist of ten new episodes with all ten debuting at the same time on Netflix in early 2013.

Re: TV: what have you been watching?

I read somewhere that each episode is going to revolve around a different character. Should be pretty interesting and we'll see if the writers have the same spark they had years ago.

Loving the Newsroom. Anyone who liked The West Wing (same creator) you gotta watch this. Same cadance, same diversity of characters and just as addictive. My favourite show on TV right now.

That does sound pretty interesting. Can't wait to watch. Anyone have ETA on release date? Wikipedia says early 2013 but anyone know anything more specific?
