S5 is the last season they're doing of BB, right?
Yes, S5 is the last, but it's not like any traditional "season" of TV. It's 16 total episodes, split into two groups of 8. And the two groups were not written and filmed at the same time, as some cable split seasons are. They're entirely separate. The production of the first 8 is complete, while the writing of the second 8 is just beginning. In other words, the final 8 episodes of the show won't air until next summer.

You're opinion, but I find 2 or 3 shows that I watch during the summer better than either of those 2. I would rather spend an hour watching Royal Pains or Burn Notice or The Newsroom than either of them. Not saying they aren't good shows, but neither is as good as you all make them out to be. That's my opinion which of course I'm entitled to.

Even if it's wrong.

I agree with you. It's your opinion, your time and your decision. You may watch one or the other of these shows and not enjoy them. They are not your "lottery ticket" as it were. I have a hard time following more than a few good drama/action/comedy shows at time. Breaking Bad, Suits, White Collar, Alphas, Warehouse 13 and Royal Pains are my focus this summer. Along with some throwaways like Project Runway and Top Chef that are watch while doing other stuff shows. It's all in what floats your boat, as it were.

Hahahaha, I forgot about Suits and White Collar, which I'd rather watch than either of those. Plus the wife / kids have no interest in BB or MM, and we like to watch our shows together. When my DVR is clear again, I'll probably watch a few more episodes of those two along with the 40 or 50 movies I have saved up.

I think I need about 2 weeks to do nothing but watch TV
