    I didn't like that one because it sought to make conservatives and patriots look like assholes.

    It was ahead of its time. Now everything on TV -- news and entertainment -- tries to do the same thing.

    The amount of crazy theorizing made True Detective season 1 a unique experience along with some of the best work Matthew Mcconaughey and Woody Harrelson have ever done. I tried Breaking Bad a couple times, but never could stay interested. I really need to finish The Wire.

    I finished a rewatching of “The Wire” series just last night and put it in the top tier with “Sopranos” and “Breaking Bad.”

    The Wire was excellent. However the acting in the Sopranos puts it in a class by itself.

    Firefly was dope. Too bad it only got one season and a movie. It was better than Star Trek or Star Wars

    Family Matters and Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Can’t beat real life stories that made you laugh, cry, think, and change.

    Best of the 1950s - The Rifleman or Perry Mason. Maybe Have Gun - Will Travel or the half hour early episodes of Gunsmoke or Rocky and Bullwinkle. or the Red Skelton Show.

    Best of the 1960s - Hard to argue with the Twilight Zone or StarTrek. Maybe, the Andy Griffith Show or Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color. Maybe The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Or how about Mission: Impossible, or The Wide World of Sports, or Rowan and Martin's Laugh In or The Outer Limits or Wild Kingdom or Password or The Saint?

    Best of the 1970s - The Bob Newhart Show or Mary Tyler Moore. Maybe Kung Fu. or Monty Python or The Midnight Special. There was a lot of drek in the '70's, and a lot that wasn't, but that doesn't hold up very well (including MASH and even All in the Family, to a degree)
