    Thanks, OnlyShawn. I'd been watching it on surfthechannel.com but it seems as though whoever was posting the links gave up partway through the season. :-)

    Lots of basketball, Texas football, pretty much anything on USA Network. Both seasons of 'Life' are on hulu, a cancelled but great show once on NBC - you should watch it if you like crime/police shows that are more intelligent than the typical L&O show!

    Homeland was fantastic, I've been telling any and everyone to watch it. I need to finally finish Mad Men. And I'm excited for the second season of the BBC's Sherlock coming out next month (I actually think there was a feature on Dappered about the first season).


    Also, I used sidereel.com to watch shows online. It provides links to plenty of steaming user uploaded sites like megaupload and more.

    tubeplus.me is what i use, it's more or less the same thing as sidereel. The star of Homeland was the star of Life, for anyone who's curious

    Aw man, as good as Damian Lewis (also from Band of Brothers) and Mandy Patinkin are, how can Clare Danes not be the star of Homeland?

    Yeah, I know Claire Danes and Damian Lewis are basically co-leads, but I really think of Danes as the star. And her character is more interesting to me than Lewis' tortured (literally and figuratively) antihero. She seems more like a person you might actually know (and probably hate) and less like a fictional contrivance.

    Luther on bbc America is pretty good. Idris Alba from the Wire.

    30 Rock. One of my all-time favorites.


    Currently, my shows are on break.


    I love Mad Men, Breaking Bad, 30 Rock, Arrested Development (new reunion season films next year!), Parks and Recreation (Iffy on this one. I watch it for Ron Swanson and would only really miss him if this were cancelled), The Walking Dead, and I pre-ordered Game of Thrones on Blu Ray.


    To the question of if I notice their styles, yes! Don Draper Caravan sunglasses and casual wear are the most eye-catching to me.


    Must admit I am more of a movie guy though. I am currently in the middle of a Matrix BluRay run-through, then I will move on to Lord of the Rings, Casino Royale, and HP and the Deathly Hallows P:I&II. Probably Gangs of New York also. Just saw Layer Cake and loved it.


    I ordered Vanilla Sky to rewatch on DVD since it isn't out on Blu yet.


    I find that most TV dramas can't hold me because their budgets are too low for the quality to be convincing. Some work, and Mad Men took the smart route of going for cinematic camera style as part of its concept and budget. But dang, those CBS crime/cop/investigation shows just don't hold me. I like dry humor and find that I can handle that on a TV style budget and feel.

    I watch mostly comedies. How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory, Parks and Rec. I used to watch The Office but it really hasn't done it for me the past few years so I stopped.


    Now, the writing is no good, the dinosaurs aren't the best, and the show's a bit underwhelming, but...I *love* Terra Nova. DINOSAURS, MAN.
