    i am in love with girls.

    i'm watching game of thrones and enjoy it, but i fully admit i can't take in all the character names and kingdom references. it's like a war of clothing styles and outdoor lighting for me.

    also, the conversation with hannah and her mom after putting her dad to bed felt like a conversation with my mom sort of, and i'm sure you all know what i mean since you know my mom.

    Does Girls get better? The first episode felt very rich-white-girl-problems. Veep is hilarious, though. Love the supporting cast. Just realized the actress who plays Selena's chief of staff was the star of My Girl.

    I love Veep so much. I wasn't sure how well Iannuci's tone would translate to something starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, but the show is just gloriously bitter. The VIP for me is probably Matt Walsh, whose every line is drop-dead funny. Anyway, probably my favorite show right now.

    i like veep. it's funny, i don't know about hilarious. but that my girl reference TOTALLY makes sense; she looked familiar.

    I'd give Girls a chance, but after the eight dozen or so cultural think pieces I've already read about it, I feel as though I've already seen it.

    Anna Chlumsky. And she has grown up quite well!
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    Girls gets much, much worse as time goes on. It began as an interesting, honest and thoughtful character study and has quickly devolved into a middling sitcom.

    the only thing that has seemed like a middling sitcom was hannah's parents in the shower, and what happened after

    and, it seems more like girls in their 20's problems, more than anything else to me

    The male characters are terribly drawn. I thought all the Sex in the City talk was just bluster, but that really seems to be what she's going for.

    The male characters seem idiotic, insecure, immature, self-absorbed, etc., because just like the female characters in their 20's, some males are like that in their 20's, obviously not all. The James LeGros character seems like he has a better grasp on life, since he's older, but of course he has his flaws, which is one the points of the show, no?

    They're idiotic insecure and self-absorbed at a comical level. They're not fully realized characters, which the women do seem to be. To me. How stupid was that "concert" where the diary got read? Nobody would watch that. Zero people.

    Yes, i agree it was silly. And, maybe some of the male characters aren't fully realized because it is written solely, for the most part, by the lead character who is also in her 20's, and may also contribute to some of that silliness. It's far from perfect, however i still enjoy the show.

    So I decided to dive into Boardwalk Empire last night and I just spent the past six hours straight watching the first half of season one.

    What a fantastic show

    Have to say, that 30 Rock season finale was great. If only the rest of the season had been so sharp. It's probably for the best that they're bowing out after next season.

    I have just watched just about all 4 seasons of Sons of Anarchy this last weekend. Unf.

    Definitely a must watch series.

    I think Girls is pretty great. I've watched all 8 episodes and wait anxiously for it on Sunday nights.

    I also am generally liking anything on tv since most shows are over for the summer and im on break.

    You were so right. Decided to give it another shot after the shaky pilot and it really does get better; much better. Definitely going to have to check out Tiny Furniture now.

    I desperately wanted this show to be good. Series 1 of Thick of It was incredible, once they got rid of Hugh the show was a let down. I suppose there was almost no hope that VEEP could be better than either but it's getting annoying. The rhythm of the show is way more forced. Each line seems shoehorned in. I know "POTUS" is a real term that some folks use, but it's pretty blatant that Iannuci is overusing it to create the faceless, dehumanized "PM" equivalent. We get it already. And for FUCKS SAKE why does every American adaptation of a British show have to have the love interest rammed down our throats?

    [VEEP SPOILER AHEAD]:

    I dunno, I think I actually prefer Veep to Thick of It - and I almost always prefer the Brit originals. Loved In the Loop, though. Veep is definitely... shinier, punchier and even slightly more sitcomy than Thick of It, but it's surprisingly dark beneath that veneer. That last ep in which Selena made her chief of staff take the fall for the pregnancy story? Yikes.

    It makes me irrationally angry when I watch reality television show contestants freak out about having to "act." The logical loophole of it drives me fucking nuts.

    Just watched the first "episode" of Sherlock and really dug it. The fact that I stuck with it though the end says it all as I can sometimes have serious ADD especially with netflix. So many options!

    Also, "Jem and The Holograms" is fucking terrific

    Accidentally tried an episode of 'Redneck Island' (survivor type, team challenge based voting off deal) on CMT. The first speed task was finding keys to unlock portipotties. I'm half neck and still can't really recommend it.
