dollhouse got way better after joss whedon started writing episodes himself
(about episode 6 or 7 in season 1, i think)

added a nice story arc and more depth to the characters.

it's still no masterpiece like firefly (also whedon) but good entertainment.

unfortunately, the series finale feeled way too rushed due to the cancellation :/

Breaking Bad is hands down the best show on television at the moment. The acting on the part of the two male leads is exceptional, and as fantastic a job as Bryan Cranston does, Aaron Paul sometimes outshines him as the hapless cook/ sometimes-addict Jesse Pinkman. His execution of the highschool dropout turned small-time dealer is picture perfect... I've had friends who went in that direction of whom he's a near mirror image.

Some people have a hard time getting into this show, the only excuse I can give them being some kind of fever of the brain. The show's pilot is absolutely stellar, and though it takes an episode or two to get back up to that pace, for three seasons the show has consistently gotten darker, funnier, more suspenseful/intense, and all the while keeping you invested in the characters, even if you start hating those you were rooting for at the start. Basically the show has gotten better in near every possible way... and where season three ended, I can't see season four breaking that trend.

Boardwalk Empire is also very good, though its definitely a slow paced show... and I liked how Walking Dead was looking, though the last episode of the pilot season pissed me off with its ridiculous computer imagery of neurons flaring, which they try to imply is an extreme closeup of an actual recorded brain scan.

Not much else has seemed all that worth watching lately.

Yeah, fringe definitely got better the second season.
Ignorance and callousness are not virtues

A bleeding heart is a symbol of holiness, a symbol of compassion, not an epithet

When our discourse sinks to the level of meaningless, pejorative labels and personal name-calling rather than honest reflection and reasoned dialogue, we are no longer a people, but a mob

I have been reliving my childhood and watching Boy Meets World again. I am loving it just as much now as I did then.

I just finished watching the 2 seasons of Community. I originally had no interest in this show but saw a commercial for it, they lured me in with the hilarity of Chevy Chase, and the good looking gal didnt hurt either.

I am ready for weeds to start its final season next week. I loved the first 3 seasons but I sure hope that they don't mess this season up because last season was bad. It needs to rediscover its roots and get back to a show that was based around a pot dealing soccer mom.
