Recently started watching Futurama again from the beginning, never really went through it chronologically before.

I fucking love that show.

Finished watching season 1 of Once Upon A Time - pretty solid show and neat direction. Mystery show focused primarily on fairy tale characters - the majority of which don't remember who they really are due to a curse the Queen cast upon their realm that sent them into 'our' world.

Starting up Grimm next.

Even though I've seen all the seasons, I still watch "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" every few days.

Other than that, Sons of Anarchy has been pretty good so far. (I'm up to season 2)

So yeah.... Second season of Game of Thrones was pretty much the best thing ever. I'd say it surpassed the first. Gonna be a long wait for the next season.

Ye i cant wait until next season. Best HBO series since Deadwood and Rome, and might even surpass those when it's all said and done ... which im guessing will be 5+ seasons at the least.

What makes Game of Thrones so amazing to you guys? I'm up to episode 9 on the second season and I pretty much fall asleep at least once per episode, waiting for it to get good.

Hold on .... did you fall asleep during episode 9? Season 2 started off a bit slow but boy did it go out with a bang.

The show flows smoothly, has a great story along with some top notch acting. What is there not to like about it?

I'v never read the books, but im loving the series so far.

No offense, but why the fuck do you keep watching it then? It's an HBO series, not a Tarkovsky flick; you're not really going to get something deeper or more meaningful out of it. If you don't like it, then quit watching. Unless, secretly, you do like it and you just enjoy being difficult...

It's not terrible I just don't see how it's amazing or deserves a 9.4 on IMDB. I mean, I gave True Blood 3 full seasons and countless seasons of Entourage so I have a high tolerance

Wow, dont know how you even sat through a single season of either of those ... i'v only seen an episode or two of true blood, and i can say it was one of the worst shows i'v had the misfortune of watching in recent years.

I enjoy Game of Thrones (having not read the books), but it is certainly not at all without its flaws. I do think the second season finished strong with the last two episodes. For a show that, in my views, has struggled with pacing and flow, the finale handled that aspect fairly expertly while darting across about a dozen different storylines. I have to say though that the strongest element of the series is its surprisingly good acting. I can't even think of a performance that I can recall that stuck out as incongruous with the nature of the show (although the kid playing Catelyn Stark's nephew is weird).

Having read the first three books of ASoIaF, and watched the first season of GoT, I can't decide if I should keep reading the books or just follow the series. On one hand, I find GRRM's writing crude and vulgar (and his use of onomatopoeia makes me cringe, but that's just nitpicking) whereas GoT, like every HBO series I've seen, has impeccable execution. But what I did like about the books most of all, was the characterization, and GoT seems a bit hit-and-miss in adapting that. I love the guy they got to play Bronn, but others like the Hound I like nowhere near as much as in the books. And then there's the level of detail just being lower overall.

EDIT: Not to mention the spoiler risk if I don't keep up with the books, a problem that wouldn't exist if people just weren't such jackasses :/

Can someone recommend me a good comedy series for me to watch while I'm travelling? I hardly ever watch or hear about TV so don't be shy to state the obvious.

This. Other comedy shows really worth watching are Arrested Development, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Louie for more recent stuff. If you haven't checked out Fawlty Towers or Blackadder, I'd suggest doing so.

I delved into Mad Men recently. I'm through the first season and 9 episodes into the second. I'm still not sure how I feel about it, perhaps is one of those kind of shows.

I'm watching Homicide on DVD. The first 3 seasons are really good, but that's somewhat a misleading statement, since season two is only four episodes. I just started on S4, but they dumped some of the good characters, so I'm already skeptical about it.

The show is really quite good at following David Simon's book. Almost every case in the book is in the show. I can't really think of a better book to TV adaptation.

Just watched the first season of Deadwood for the second time. I had trouble getting into it the first time since I didn't really know what to expect. Definitely enjoyed it more the second time around and will probably begin the second season soon.

It's very slow and dialogue heavy. More so than probably any show I've ever seen. That's probably why I wasn't able to get into it at first.
