I've finally gotten to see DEADWOOD via this channel. I can see what all the hype is about. I'm also able to catch OZ, and frankly, I don't see what the hype is/was, I guess it's one of those "had to be there" things.
But tonight they premiered UNDERBELLY, an Australian series about the Heroin trade in Australia in the 70s and 80s. First show was fantastic, and I can't wait for more.
Plus, starting in a week or so, they are going to run BROTHERHOOD, the former Showtime drama. It was GREAT when it was on, but Showtime didn't renew it this season. If you've never seen it, check it out!
They also show Sleeper Cell, Friday Night Lights (new shows), and a few other dramas that I've not been able to catch yet. So, is anybody else getting addicted to the 101?
Don't forget the opportunity to watch new episodes of Friday Night Lights MONTHS before cable subscribers get it on NBC. That's really the only time I watch The 101, but I have to admit I'd like to find the time to watch Oz and see what the fuss was all about.
OK, I can't sit here and let you say that about The West Wing. The West Wing only won the big awards when Sorkin was still writing it, and while the last season he wrote wasn't quite as good as the earlier ones, it was still great, great television.
