    I learned not to trust AMC anymore after The Killing, which I hung with way too long under the assumption AMC created Mad Men and Breaking Bad, so how could it be so terrible? I'll never watch another AMC show until it's been on a season or two with critical acclaim.

    Unless it's about zombies. I will watch that even if it's terrible (and it kind of is.)

    Here's an article that gets into it.

I had it DVRed so that I could watch it, sat down this weekend, watched it over three nights, and came away wanting so much more. The characters are good, the subject is good. The writing is DEPLORABLE. Cullen Bohanin had a chance, but the continued reinforcement that he is a drunk, does not advance the story and lessens his character. The Irish Brothers McGuiness, need to be shoved in front of the train, they are completely worthless to the plot, yet receive 10% of the screen time each week. Lilly is a fine character, and in fact the only one on the show, that it seems like the writers thought out. I like the Reverend, a little, but just when I come to that realization, the writers decide to throw in an abandoned daughter that he has not seen in 15 years, WTH?
    I actually thought the 1st episode was pretty solid but it's had a hard time keeping my attention frankly. It's a bit too much all over the place.

    Person of Interest. A bit of a slow start, but now that they've been giving more details on the backstory of the characters, it's steadily improving IMO.

    The League. It's growing on me. I've seen 3 episodes thus far and laugh harder in each one.

    I'm trying really hard to like Sons of Anarchy, but I just can't seem to get there. I'm about halfway through season 2 on Netflix and I've about lost interest. There's just something about this "club" and the stories I'm not buying. It just seems so not believable.

    I know you have to suspend disbelief for most shows, but I'm just not buying these guys as smart, savvy organized criminals. And it's not like the Sopranos where the characters are at least likeable. I understand they were still violent mobsters, but in their world you at least rooted for them and they seemed to have redeeming qualities. I liked those guys even though they were criminals. With SoA, I find little about them I like. I want them to lose....

    Hell on Wheels was still being recorded on my DVR. Caught up on it over the last few days. That show has shaped up some. It has been entertaining.

    I tell my wife it is the best show on TV. She disagrees but sometimes she is wrong!

    I remember watching the first few episodes and thinking to my self that the show was funny but I didn't know if it had staying power. It sure has.

    I used to love Big Bang and I still like it, but it isn't a must watch for me anymore.

    Castle and Modern Family are about the only network shows I watch anymore. Toss 30 Rock in there when it comes back on.

    Other than that it's Psych (there was a first season Austin Kearns reference and I've been hooked ever since), White Collar, and South Park.

    There are also Fraiser re-runs on Hallmark Channel in the evenings, which is nice.
