Showtime picked up three of its hit series for new seasons (

Shameless, House of Lies and Californication are not discussed very much around here, but surely some watch these shows. I watch Shameless, myself, which I do enjoy, but not a show I feel the need to discuss for some reason.

Showtime's new crown jewel, Golden Globe winner Homeland, is already renewed for season 2.

I loved the first season of Shameless, but the new episodes are sitting unwatched on my DVR. This is likely due to all my love and attention going to Downton Abbey at the moment. (Another show that really should be talked about around here. Perhaps I'll start a thread.)

Is it too late too start a Downton Abbey thread, I wonder? It's just that we're halfway through season 2 already. But if you wanted to take on Downton Abbey chores, I'd gladly join in. We'd get a handful of new episodes in plus the Christmas special, which I hope PBS is airing.

Back to Showtime, I only saw the first episode of House of Lies but I didn't care for it, despite the presence of Kristen Bell and Ben Schwartz. I hear it got better, though.

I watched Californication all of last season but the novelty of it wore off pretty fast for me.

Should I try to make the time to get through Season 1 of Homeland in one go? (Or two?) I'm worried I may have to, like, pay attention and stuff.

Yes, Homeland's great, and it's not so twisty-turny that you get lost if you look away from the screen for a couple minutes. The early episodes have a little too much "Look! We're on premium cable! Have some GRATUITOUS TITS and CURSING!" but they get it out of their system after a while.

Homeland is well worth the effort of watching it. The hot alien chick from V shows her boobs a few times, and that isn't even the best thing about the show.

How is Shameless? I like Emmy Rossum and I like the idea of her naked, but she kinda has the body of a 12 year old. What's it about? Is it a comedy?

Forget it Josh... it's Cerebustown.

Solid, entertaining legal thriller with Matthew McConaughey doing his leading man best work (that I've seen, I've skipped all of his romantic comedies) since A Time To Kill. It's not gonna win any Oscars, but it's a well-made Hollywood movie.
