My wife and I are currently watching via NetFlix:

Breaking Bad - about half way through season 1. Really enjoying this so far.

Intelligence - My wife was a borderline psychotic Sopranos fan so she is really enjoying this. Definitely one that you have to pay close attention to with all the different factions constantly changing sides.

Mad Men - Started off real interesting but has taken a back seat to the other shows. Will probably go back to this after we finish Breaking Bad.

I'd probably let Mad Men take a back seat to Breaking Bad too, but Mad Men is a fantastic show. Don't give up on it. Just don't expect a top of action or anything, it's completely character and dialog driven.

I was pleasantly surprised to find Peep Show on Netflix streaming last night.

The first few episodes of the first season are slow going and the camera work is too shifty. Stick with it and the reward is immense, as each season from seasons 2-4 get better and better. Actually, looking back at the first few episodes, they're better in second and third viewings than the first go-round.

So, yes, Peep Show. Definitely in my top 10 of favorite comedies.

I started a thread about it and it hasn't gotten much traffic, but the new show Homeland on Showtime is awesome. The writers/producers come from the likes of 24 and Dexter. It definitely feels more like 24 than Dexter, but it's a great show. It got such great critical acclaim and ratings after just four episodes that it was renewed for another season. There have been 8 episodes so far. The acting and writing are great ;-D

Awesome setup show tonight for the TUF finale. This is the best show on TV and this was a great season. Probably the best fighters ever and I can't wait to see Miller shut Bisping's pie-hole on Saturday.

As annoying as the guy is, Bisping is definitely going to win the fight.

Why would you say that? Miller has gone the distance with GSP (even though it was years ago) Chael Sonnen and Jake Shields. He's faced the same level of competition as Bisping and even though is record is spotty he hasn't been stopped by any of them. Bisping is the favourite at -220 to +170 (Jonny Bones is -500 against Machida!!) but I give Miller a chance. If he gets Bisping down early in the rounds and doesn't get into a slugfest Miller can win a boring fight. He's not going to KO him like Hendo did unfortunately. I'm still pissed at Bisping for knocking Kang out of the UFC.

I downloaded it as it aired in England last fall and it's definitely worth watching. It really is a mix between The Office and Extras.
