    Californication. My goodness, there's a lot of T&A in that series.

    Ended up being stymied on Whitechapel - Amazon pulled it down off Prime availability with on episode in Series 3 left and all of Series 4. I guess I'll get back to it some day.

    Knocked out The Last Enemy a week or so ago - a good watch for fans of the current BBC Sherlock - it's basically Benedict Cumberbatch's audition tape...

    Recently completed: TurN (about Revolutionary War spy)

    I'm now working my way through Black Mirror, which is like a modern version of Twilight Zone & focused on dystopian technology

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    I'm binging on Game of Thrones season 4 this week (as well as cramming through the audio versions of A Feast for Crows and A Dance With Dragons) in preparation for season 5 of GoT starting up this Sunday.

    The new Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt produced by Tina Fey. Hilarious.

    Recently started "Babylon 5". That show was underrated.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    We started Alpha House on Amazon Prime. Hubby found it and we both love it.

    Borrowed Season 3 of VEEP from the library on Monday and have three episodes left for this evening.

    Love this show. JLD is a goddess.

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Have been watching "Orphan Black" over the past couple of weeks (free if you have Amazon Prime) and I highly recommend, reminds me of the X-Files with the biotech and military conspiracies. My sister apparently binge-watched the entire first season over the weekend (10 episodes). I am so impressed by Tatiana Maslany's ability to convincingly act out all of the distinct "clone" characters.

    My wife and I watched it a couple weeks ago and liked it so much that we started watching it again last night. It's truly great!

    I actually liked it. IT was pretty well done.

    Over the past few days my wife and I watched the first 9 episodes of The Brink on HBO. Jack Black as a low-level diplomat and Tim Robbins as a womanizing Secretary of State trying to handle a coup in Pakistan doesn't sound like a promising premise (and I think HBO's comedies can be hit or miss) but this is pretty good. It's a nice combination of dark humor and just enough drama. I'm sad there's only one episode left, but it looks like it's been picked up for a second season.

    Also, John Larroquette should always be cast as a sleazeball or weirdo.

    I did Walking Dead, I just started Heroes. Never actually watched any of those shows before. Not bad.

    That's next on my list, but otherwise it's Peaky Blinders, Sherlock, and OITNB. I don't have time to binge watch though, maybe an episode here or there every few nights.
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    I just started season 3. Definitely TVMA at times.
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    Currently flying through Dr. Who on Netflix, can't believe I waited so long to give this show a try. It's amazing!

    Before that I was binge watching Bob's Burgers, which in my opinion bears a lot in common with The Simpsons back during their stronger seasons.I think it's awesome that a lot of newer shows with more of a positive and feel-good approach can still be so well written (although I still love darker shows like The Wire, Sopranos, etc.).
    Insanity in individuals is something rare - but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.

    Love Dr. Who. Here's a Bad Wolf picture outside Cadillac Ranch.

    I hate TV. That being said; I can't believe no one has mentioned Wet Hot American Summer. Gold.

    We did go through that one... twice already. I loved the movie when it came out and the show was equally hilarious. Possibly even better than the movie. Paul Rudd and David Wain were great! There's a pretty good interview with WHAS creators David Wain and Michael Showalter on the Podcast "Bullseye" from a couple of weeks ago that's worth checking out.

    On a The State related note, there are rumors that there are scripts for a couple dozen more episodes of Reno 911! that NetFlix wants to produce and is working with Comedy Central to get the rights to. I hope that happens.
