I recently purchased the first season of Friday Night Lights on DVD and have watched two episodes so far. The first episode didn’t 100% grab me, but I started to get into it more during the second episode. I always hear great things about this show, so hopefully I’ll finish the season within the next month or so.
Treme. I want to like Treme. I should like Treme. But that first episode is SO LONG. It’s over an hour long, guys. It’s like a movie. I started watching it, and I will finish it. But I’m not dying to watch it. I think the problem is that I’m not a huge fan of Steve Zahn. He rubs me the wrong way. But I’m not giving up. Season two doesn’t start until Spring 2011, so I’ll try and finish the episodes and if I don’t get hooked then I won’t tune in.
Planet Earth. I was really liking Planet Earth, and then I got bored. I’m fixin’ to get back on the wagon there, though, so expect something soon.
I know everyone says Band of Brothers is really good. But I haven’t heard a compelling argument for it yet. So here’s the challenge – convince me it deserves a place in my busy TV-viewing schedule.
Now here’s the other thing: I want to know what you’re watching. Did you watch all of True Blood this summer? Are you a fan of Cougar Town? Are you singing the praises of Breaking Bad? Then write a post for me. The very exclusive reward is my friendship, which also happens to be priceless. So get to it! (If you want to do this, contact me on Facebook or Twitter.)
