It's time to unwind, you've had a long day and you just want to sit back with your last cup of coffee for the night, and watch something entertaining, interesting, informative or simply something mindless on the telly... What TV program do you put on, or wish you could be watching? Have a favorite series that you never miss? What's got you hooked and why?
I was late to get on the bandwagon, but I'm hooked on watching the award winning series MAD MEN on AMC. The originator of the show also wrote The Sopranos, so that clues you in that this series was worth looking into. Mad Men was recommended to me by a friend, so I ordered the first season from Netflix and was immediately transfixed, watching one episode after the other for hours on end. Had to hurry and order the rest, and luckily just finished watching seasons two and three before season four started last week. I can't recommend this show high enough, so if you have not yet watched it, you must!
“I hate to break it to you, but there is no big lie, there is no system, the universe is indifferent.”

NPR REVIEW: 'Mad Men': Behaving Badly, And Loving Every Minute
by David Bianculli
Mad Men is a class act all the way. It's the best TV series to probe and dramatize the New Frontier of the early 1960s since Call to Glory, a wonderful ABC drama from the mid-'80s.
And Mad Men has more on its mind than just reveling in the differences between now and then. It's also serving up a complicated mystery or two, and some first-rate plot twists and shockers, and so many intriguing characters and situations that the show quickly becomes addictive. Watching episodes on DVD, at your own pace, is a great way to burn through them.

This is fun! I absolutely love the daily show! I watch it everyday too. And when I miss it I watch it online the next day. I really like cartoons. I always have cartoon network on and I watch adult swim at night. My favorite show is definitely moral orel which is basically a statement about christian hypocrisy done in claymation. You can watch it here: http://video.adultswim.com/moral-orel/index.html It used to be on adult swim but it was canceled. Thats pretty much it. I like the history channel. My bf and I watch a lot of movies. We just watched the informant with matt damon a few hours ago.
