    I tried watching the Wire years ago, but couldn't get into it. Guess I will have to give it another try.

    Saw today that Walking Dead in on antenna TV! Too bad they are showing season 3, the season I just got finished watching from the library! http://www.ktvd.com/schedule.html

    I had kinda forgot how good Seinfeld was, but by accident tuned into a show just after watching Big Bang Theory. I was was really shocked how they managed to have 4 excellent story lines that all stood alone for that show, but also tied into the ongoing story lines for all four characters. I can see how a every second has to be managed to get all that into 20 minutes! Each Seinfeld character is a masterpiece of craft so easy to love. Even occasional or single episode characters have a life of their own. A friend of mine and I relate every day events to particular Seinfeld episodes, and we immediately understand what the other person is talking about.

    I really do like BBT references to nerdy things like comic books and space movies and TV series, and technical info like string theory. And the different costoms that they have worn over the years have been great.

    Something that was special for me with Breaking Bad was the references to the desert south west including the stark desert, border areas and the related drug lord homes in Mexico.

    The location was a character in itself by the end, and from what I've heard it was serendipitous as it was supposed to be based in So Cal, but high costs and taxes necessitated the move.

    For those planning to watch The Wire based on recommendations on this site, I'd take the hyperbole with a grain of salt. Go in thinking it will be good, not the greatest show ever. I was disappointed in it even though I liked it because of the anticipation of overwhelming greatness. I can think of 20+ shows I liked better, but it may very well make your top ten. i just think it's better to be pleasantly surprised that it surpasses expectations than not living up to too lofty expectations.

    You're in for a treat. BCS is a worthy spinoff.

    I recently watched the Mythbusters episode where they did the M-60 machine gun mounted in the trunk. That was awesome.
