    I'd say right now, Breaking Bad is my favorite show on television, and I personally think it is one of, if not the best drama on TV right now.

    I'm slowly but surely getting hooked on Mad Men now. I like it how all sorts of intrigues and emotions are bubbling barely under the surface, but kept in check nearly all the time, because that's what society demanded of people back then. To me, it has elements of David Lynch combined with what I remember from Fifties' movies, in that they all had to use subtle ways to hint at what couldn't be said out loud. A lot like this movie Far From Heaven, reassessing that era and its mores from today's perspective.

    It's also fascinating how they recreated a time that you don't often get to see, it's the all-too familiar Fifties on the surface, but with elements of the Sixties creeping in, without going for the more eye-catching late Sixties' clichés of free love, hippies, drugs, teen rebellion, rock music and all that.

    All the people are so happy now, their heads are caving in.
    I'm glad they are a snowman with protective rubber skin.

    I just finished watching the first season of 'Mad Men'. Wow, what a series. Magnificent casting and art direction that makes the late Fifties - early Sixties almost palpable, clever writing that addresses the extremely awkward situations and relations on the job that I recognize from my own diverse career, and fine, nuanced and subtle acting. Kudos to all involved.

    It's also ironic that leading actor Jon Hamm should be nominated for an Emmy twice along with Bryan Cranston - and lose to him twice!

    I've already said that "Everybody Hates Chris" was my fave, but really the chosen one is Dexter, it makes me alive, happy seeing what he does, it's really unique and poweful.

    Don't get the wrong idea, but some people deserve it.

    Showtime show bigtime.

    House is a very close contender with MitM for me.

    Not quite as good but still my favourites - Monk, The Simpsons, Avatar: the Last Airbender.

    Not storylined shows but I still enjoy: The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Mythbusters, No Reservations (Anthony Bourdain)

    Getting into Futurama.

    For me personally I love The Wonder Years a truly phenomenal show and one that I watched and now like quite a bit better than MITM. TWY is so true to life even though I wasn’t even alive when the show aired. I relate quite a bit more to TWY than to MITM (though there are exceptions) Breaking bad used to be my #1but is now #2 and MITM is #3. That’s just me but something about the wonder years really got me and it’s just sooooo freakin good, I think part of it also has to do with the fact that it is similar to Malcolm in several cases.
