Jericho is a solid watch. Catch up on the canceled TV series to prep for the upcoming film!

If you're looking for weird fun I'm going to suggest Pushing Daisies. It's the most I've enjoyed a murder mystery show in a long time.

I've heard good things about this. I've got to learn to stick to my que - I get so easily distracted.

Speaking of good TV, check out Carnivale. Despite its rushed final season (they were canceled after 2, I think) it was worth it.

I loved Carnivale. I hate HBO and their tendency to create great period shows only to realize that period shows are expensive and kill them within a few seasons. I feel like this is going to happen to Game of Thrones.

You're totally spot on with this. I think what creators have to do is have a limited story arc going into production with HBO and stick to it. When I saw all the location shooting they did with an actual forum for Rome I thought to myself, "Man, this can't last." Sure enough, they only did 2 seasons of that amazing show. Band of Brothers is something that plays to what HBO does best: limited series with a definite ending - no "seasons" to pursue.

I think Rome ended at a good point, personally. But yeah, that shit kills them.

Boardwalk Empire seems good. I finished the first episode the other day... looks like it'll be money.

Rome did end at a good point, but it middled on fast forward. The second half of the season 2 was so rushed, with so much shit happening, you knew that they were planning for it to go on longer. Probably, a whole season for the first triumvirate and season 3 as the war between Anthony and Octavian. I hope Boardwalk Empire doesn't go the same way. Also, has anyone been watching Treme? It's not The Wire but I'm enjoying it.

Haven't really heard of that show yet. Is it a police drama like The Wire?

No, it's about New Orleans six months after the flood. It's produced by the same people though.
