Now what??

I've seen Six Feet Under, Arrested Development, The Sopranos, Dexter (as it progresses), NewsRadio and several other great television series.

Have I come to television's precipice?

i just watched the first episode of the wire. is it not the best place to start? it was great, but not 'best show ever' great. like law and order when it doesnt suck + menace 2 society.

generation kill was kinda shit, but kinda good in a gunfights and explosions and a make-me-want-to-punch-someone sort of way.

since people have mentioned carnivale and freaks and geeks, another great show that was cut off at the knees is Firefly.

Thanks for the suggestions. Oz and 30 Rock look like good possibilities.

Freaks and Geeks - love it! *leg kick*
Weeds - great during the first two seasons, but has declined over the last two
Harvey Birdman - ha ha ha!

yeah if you want funny peep show is decent, although i personally would recommend brass eye, and if you like that get nathan barley and possibly dead set

i love the mighty boosh too, but it's quite random. flight of the conchords was good as well.

i'm gonna get caught up on Dexter pretty soon. then i'm thinking about Deadwood, Carnivale, and The Tudors. and Mad Men.

am i missing anything?

(i'll probably just end up rewatching six feet under seven times instead)

i haven't seen the wire, but i think it would be hard to top season 2 and 3 of the shield. all the shit with money train was insane.

Of course The Wire is a very different kind of cop show, but the Shield is much more entertaining. I loved the fifth season. Waiting for season 7 to come out on DVD now... It's gonna be a loooong wait. :(

And yes, I know I can download it, but I have stopped doing that.
