I spend a great deal of time and energy trashing television. Most of what emits from the boob tube sucks. There are so few shows I can actually stomach. If the networks launch 20 new programs, it's most likely I'll reject all 20. Maybe, just maybe, one will capture my interest and should that one be something special I'll add it to my short list of must-see television shows.
Last night I watched the pilot for a new drama starring Denis Leary called "Rescue Me" and it was great. Here in Canada, Showcase is carrying it Tuesday nights @ 22:00. I'll be tuning in for the second episode next Tuesday and I love the promise this series is showing thus far. It feels like another great HBO drama but it actually airs in the States on the FX network.
Below are the shows I actually make an effort to watch. Damn I'm going to miss NHL hockey.
- Six Feet Under
- The Sopranos
- The Simpsons
- Arrested Development
- Curb Your Enthusiasm
- Rescue Me
