Never again will I pre-order an album. Wish I had heard this before I paid good money for it.

I used to watch it. Stopped watching after a couple of episodes into the 2nd season, no idea why or for whatever reason. Now I'm so far behind though so I can't be bothered to start watching it again. So many episodes. Has it been any good since the start of the 2nd season?

I've loved it. This season though I think will be one of their lasts. Storyline is so random than when it first started.

Couldn't slow down anymore than I did.

There are a couple other shows I've been interested in watching, Park and Recreation, Modern Family, and/or The Office.Any other suggestions?
Parks and Recreation is the best comedy on TV at the moment, IMO. The first season is offputting (they seemed to be trying to be a total Office spinoff in the first season, which luckily they aborted) but stick with it, from season 2 on is GOLD.

Modern Family has been quite funny from the handful of episodes I've seen.

The first few seasons of The Office were really, really funny but the last few haven't been interesting to me, so I stopped watching.


And if you want an amazing, possibly THE BEST drama ever, watch The Wire.

I started watching this about a month ago and I completely agree. Season 1 is pretty bad, but its only 6 episodes and explains the main relationships in the show. I basically forced myself through the 1st season. But Season 2 is great, and once they added Adam Scott and Rob Lowe at the end of season 2, it was even better.

Adam Scott related note: if you havent watched Party Down, I recommend that you do.

I actually watch it, I've seen seasons 1-3. Waiting for the DVD for S4. I like it, not great, but entertaining.

From what I've seen of P&R it seems like a good show, it's first on my list.

The other two I'll likely download the first season, check em out.

The Wire, amazing show. Bought the series last summer.

Another show I wanted to check out is Showtime's Shameless with William H Macey. Look intriguing.

Well catching up on SoA. Almost got through season 2, got the last two left I think. Awesome show, probably one of my favourites along with BB, BE and GoT.

For those talking about The Wire. Gave it a try for a couple of episodes but never thought it was that great. I know it's supposed to be one of the most acclaimed series ever but I just don't see it. Maybe I've not given it enough of a chance, just seems so damn slow to me.

10 episodes into season 3 of Weeds. Love this show. It's always changing so it doesn't get stale or boring and the 30 minute episodes really make it fly by. Pretty darn good cast too. I wish I had a hot "separated" female neighbor like MLP living next to me when I was single

The scope of The Wire is huge, and the first half of the first season is very much about setting up the environment - the Baltimore drug scene (both the "businessmen" and the street level pawns), the Police department (Homicide unit, Major Crimes unit, the Bureaucracy), the local Judiciary system, and the uninvolved people impacted by all "sides" are all introduced early on. It's deliberate and could be faster paced but the character development right from the get-go is really solid. I'm re-watching the entire series now, even though I finished it for the first time about 3 days ago. It's a gritty and realistic series, so not every episode has a huge plot booster that keeps the story driving at 100 mph but I can't think of an episode in the entire series that wasn't good.


Also, I loved fun.'s "Aim and Ignite" album. I'll have to check out the new one. I'm not a big fan of autotune but like most aspects of art, the use of a good thing can sometimes be bad and the use of a bad thing can sometimes be good.

Here's an example of a great song (IMO) that is SLATHERED in autotune.

That's what is so great about the movie. It gets pretty absurd, but its just funny here and there with how it plays out. I love a nice mindless comedy. I usually lose my **** laughing at anything involving the Manchester United fan club in that movie.
