Damn, I forgot The League and Sunny...good call, those are both worthy efforts.

Game of Thrones
Walking Dead
Mad Men - although this season is failing to grab me for some reason.
The Newsroom


Drop in on Veep when it's on. 

Otherwise my wife has hgtv/DIY/food on a constant loop.

Wish Cable would set up a package with just those five networks.
This sticker is dangerous and inconvenient, but I do love Fig Newtons.

I really don't watch much tv beyond the random shows on the discovery and sci channels. The only shows I'm following are Defiance and Doctor Who. Doctor Who just ended its season last saturday so there isn't much to watch randomly. I do try to get in a B-movie on Netflix every few days.

Anybody watch Falling Skies last night?

Look's like a good season is in the works.  You could tell there is a bigger budget and there have been a ton of off-screen changes.  Looks like the writers may be trying to turn the show into a deeper/darker show with a lot more character development.

I spaced and missed it, but I love the show. Am hoping to catch it On Demand prior to the next episode Sunday night. Bummer we only get 10 again this year, but that seems their norm.

Realize most don't care, but I feel compelled to give a major shout-out for an extremely satisfying season finale from Falling Skies. The really knocked it out of the park, wrapping up some of the key loose ends from previous seasons, laying the groundwork for next year, and most importantly FINALLY killing off $%^* Karen.

Thank you for a job well done! (Can we get some toys out of this property though?)

See you guys next summer...

I caught episodes 2 and 3 of Siberia last night.  Sort of a Survivor meets Lost concept. Its a liitle campy, but enjoying it so far.

I wanted to watch Siberia and did see the first episode, but I have too much going on on Monday nights.  I think I'll wait till it comes out on DVD and watch it.

Anyone unlucky enough to have Charter?  FXX is only available on a Sports Package that costs an additional $10 a month.  Their reasoning is that FXX replaced some lame Soccer channel and that is where it should stay.  It is also not available in HD.  Which means no Sunny, no The League...no happy OCB :-[

Ugh, that sucks. I freaked out for about 10 minutes last night before I finally tracked down the new channel on Comcast. Still no idea why they moved those shows, it's like they want to make it hard for people to watch.

Good to see both of these back. I missed Rafi and Sweet Dee.

Well, they need a place to run the Simpsons twenty four hours a day.
