    Truth, Devil.

    My DVR list right now contains...
    Shameless
    House of Lies
    Girls
    The Walking Dead
    Justified
    The Americans
    Parks and Recreation
    The Office
    Big Bang Theory
    It's Always Sunny
    The League
    Louie
    Game of Thrones
    Mad Men
    Breaking Bad
    Californication

    I realize I never watch movies any more because I watch so much damn TV on DVR.

    Of the ones I've seen:

    1. Twin Peaks: It's one of the most unique shows ever, and it's occasionally completely mesmerizing, especially the first half of the run.
    2. The Americans: I still am wary about sustainability, but it's been the best thing on TV so far this year.
    3. Battlestar Galactica: The first two seasons were outstanding, the third season was very good and the fourth season had huge holes.
    4. House of Cards: It's not bad, but the writing really should be better for a show with a strong premise and cast.

    I have a tendency to wait until a show is done airing to go back and catch up with it. I'll do that with Justified and Breaking Bad, the two shows currently airing that I most want to watch .

    I'm trying to slowly withdraw from watching television altogether. It's a multi-year process. I've whittled down to Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Parks & Rec, Louie and Archer.

    And then once MM and BB end on AMC, I'm planning on ditching dramas from my life.

    You don't have interest in catching up with Breaking Bad before the final eight episodes air this summer?

    Is there a place to stream the first half of this season?

    I'm glad "Justified" and "Breaking Bad" are in your future plans. They're both shows I wasn't that interested in watching but got hooked on pretty quick. As to your original 3 choices, they're all good but I highly recommend "Deadwood". Yes, it's a Western but don't go in expecting something traditional. It has a seriously Shakespearean flavour to it IMO and is eminently rewatchable. Great writing, great performances - highly recommended.

    What's your reasoning for doing so?

    Strongly seconded.

    I second the plug for Sherlock. Both seasons (series) are streaming on Netflix. Three 90-minute episodes each season.

    I still haven't seen one episode of Breaking Bad, and I consider it my greatest character flaw.

    Is it on Netflix? I have a one-month free trial waiting, maybe I'll just knock it out that way.

    It is, all five seasons.
