    What are some good shows to watch?

    I don't watch too much tv, but when I do I like to watch something intelligent and I usually stream it from the internet.

    I started watching a couple of episodes of Breaking Bad last week, but the standard "finding your authentic self by breaking rules" bores me.

    Any one have any other suggestions?

    I don't know what you like, but Hulu has 5 episodes of the British version (i.e., the original) of Shameless. Since I only got to see one season of the American version, I'm having a hoot watching it. It sure does put the fun in dysfunctional.

    So, I've watched an episode of Shameless - the us version - and William Macy (my son calls him Ned Flanders) is great in it. Thanks for the tip, I intend on watching more of them.

    I'm hooked on a lot of the Masterpiece Mystery shows lately. Guilty pleasure is still The Soup, though.

    It's not on every PBS station (we only get it on the digital TV upstairs) and it's not really primal (or intended to be), but Primal Grill has some pretty amazing meat-based recipes for cooking on just about every kind of grill imagineable from all over the world. He even cooked Shovel Lamb one day, which is exactly what it sounds like - lamb cooked on a shovel over a hot open pit.

    Believe it or not, that's pretty typical for something he would make. It's a really cool show.

    Yeah, Primal Grill's good, haven't caught it in a while, though.

    What's your problem with Breaking Bad? It's a good show, and I don't see anything "standard" about it. He's not shrugging off all responsibilities, he's trying to fulfill his responsibilities in the only way he knows how. Simultaneously, it's not "finding his true self"- changes in his character are a result of the situations he's in, not an inner discover.

    That said, there's Walking Dead, Shameless, Dexter, Memphis Blues, Sons of Anarchy, Justified... Plenty of shows out there. There's also the possibility of catching sports online, too. If you're not a sports person, learn a bit about the strategy involved and you might have a better opinion of what's on the field- endless entertainment and intellectual stimulation, taken from the right perspective.

    He's having sex with his wife in the car and she asks a question about why the sex is so good, and he says it's because it's illegal.

    But thanks for the other suggestions. Because I don't watch tv much it is hard for me to stay current about what is out there to watch since I'm not watching commercials. I don't even know what titles to look for. So thanks for the suggestions!
