EDSBS TV Talk: How are you getting through the Summer Drought?


I've been ripping through a lot of shows lately, some from recommendations of the EDSBS Amalgamation of Awesome Literature, TV, and Movies, and some from my own back catalog. I finally finished off seeing every episode of Full Metal Alchemist, the original series (/anime lawlz). I'm just starting into season 4 of The Wire, which I hear is the best season of possibly the best TV series of all time, so I'm looking forward to that. I actually went back and watched the entire run of The Adventures of Pete and Pete as well (I highly recommend you go back and check it out, it holds up surprisingly well for an adult audience).

Just recently though, I finally got around to watching the final season of Ashes to Ashes, the sequel to it's predecessor Life on Mars (UK, not the awful US version). Let me just say that, it is one of the best single seasons of television I've seen on television, expertly wrapping up standalone stories with the overarching story and mythology of the show. The final episode is also one of if not the best finale I've ever seen of a TV show, I seriously recommend it to everyone here. The soundtrack is a delightful mix of everything good (and bad) about the early 80's (early 70's for Life on Mars). The main character (Phillip Glenister) of the show, a Mr. Gene Hunt, will probably remind everyone around here of a British, middle aged version of our favorite U.S. Marshal, Raylan Givens. Not to mention, his favorite movie is High Noon and actor is Gary Cooper. Trust me on this one EDSBS Commentariat. Oh, and of course I'm in the middle of watching Doctor Who. Probably looking into running through the Sopranos run next after I finish The Wire.

This is the kind of scenes that happen on this show people.

 

So what are y'all watching to get through the summer drought of crap TV? I hear Game of Thrones is good, though no clue how much longer that's lasting as well. Consider this an open discussion on everything and anything Television.
