    We'll have to disagree on that. As much as I loved True Detective, Breaking Bad was one of the most original, most consistent, best written, and best acted shows I've ever seen. Further, it nailed the landing, IMO. That is insanely hard to do. Just ask Dexter.

    Man, this year, several of my favorite shows are coming to an end, or have already. It started with Dexter's godawful ending (literally one of the worst I've ever seen), Breaking Bad's fantastic ending (his scene with his wife in the end was one of the best scene's in TV history, IMO), True Blood (the best most can hope for: a mediocre, kinda boring ending), Mad Men is coming up, and Parks & Rec, Sons of Anarchy, and Boardwalk Empire are entering their final season.

    Luckily, there are some great shows that just got started: Blacklist, Sleepy Hollow, TD, and Fargo to go along with the staples: GoT, Louie, Veep, Arrested Development getting another season, and Community being picked up by Yahoo (though I hope they improve their godawful player). Oh, and Better Call Saul.

    I may watch too much TV.

    Actually some of the non primetime shows have been pretty well done and compelling also: namely The Bridge, Tyrant, Motive, Gang Related, Longmire, Murder In The First and Hell On Wheels to name several. I'm on the recumbent early most mornings for an hour to 1:15 and it's great to be able to queue up these shows On Demand

    I tried Gang Related, Longmire, and Hell on Wheels, but just couldn't get into them. I especially liked Hell on Wheels premise, but was really bored by the first few episodes, so never stuck with it. Did it get better? Kind of the same with Longmire. I do want to give Tyrant and the Bridge a try though. Just need to find the time to fit them all in.

    I also want to try Orange is the New Black and The Knick, a lot of which was filmed around my neighborhood. It was pretty cool walking through the period sets.

    Hell on Wheels can be trite at times and stretch a premise, but there's sufficient atmosphere, cinemetogrpahy, gratuitious violence and "what comes next-ism" to keep me checking in. I am a Craig Johnson fan so I enjoy Longmire the same way I do Justified as the late great Elmore Leonard is my all time favorite author. Tyrant is very atmospheric and somewhat predictable but it's pretty riveting. The Bridge for me has been great.. a lot darker than last season with a good continuing edge of your seat story line. It also reminds me of an Elmore Leonard type book where even the bad guys have some human sides and humanity. Check it out. Murder in the First just wound down... filmed in SF and a pretty good story line.

    FWIW,I forget the name of the movie, but the one starring Melissa McCarthy and Bill Murray was filmed around Marine Park and Sheepshead Bay. Will be released next year I think.

    That's a bummer especially with the cliffhanger they set up but I read that the producers are trying to shop the show elsewhere. Who knows, maybe it'll show up on Netflix like The Killing

    FWIW, I was getting ready to start Ray Donovan and stumbled onto an old HBO British limited series that I somehow missed in '07, Five Days, which is pretty compelling so Ray will wait awhile longer.

    I watch most of the shows you listed. Just finished my Sons of Anarchy marathon. Game of Thrones is still my #1 currently running show.

    That True Detective season is one of the single best seasons of any show I've watched and I've watched all the classics. If they can keep it up, I could definitely see it passing Breaking Bad, although that will be pretty hard to to with out Matt and Woody.

    Colin Farrell Officially Joins On For 'True Detective' Season 2

    We officially have one half of #TrueDetectiveSeason2. Colin Farrell has confirmed his role in the show in an interview with The Sunday World.

    “I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot," he said, "I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids.”

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/0...n_5857590.html

    As stated it wont be the same without Woody and McConaughey but let's see what they come up with.

    It would be really cool if they stuck a few easter eggs here and there in reference to season 1. I just hope it's somewhere near the quality of that one. HBO is kind of pissing me off with the way they've kind of screwed the pooch with Boardwalk Empire.
