Sensational television. The acting is incredible, the suspense is amazing, and there's just enough humor to take the edge off.
I'm in the process of catching up on Justified
, but so far I'm really enjoying it. It's somewhere between a serious network show and a rednecky version of Dolemite.
Have to admit, even though they're just clones of Top Gear
, which is still an awesome show, I'm enjoying both Top Gear US
(really improved in the second season--it's like night and day) and The Car Show
(Adam Carolla does a good enough job). Both shows are a little rough around the edges, but since the original Top Gear comes out with maybe twelve new episodes a year it's nice to have some backup.
My favorite personality on television right now is Karl Pilkington. The Ricky Gervais Show
is excellent (even if Ricky Gervais' laughing can be a little much), and I can't wait for new episodes of An Idiot Abroad.
The new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm
is great, but I keep making the mistake of saving them up to watch a bunch of episodes in a row. Can't really do that with Curb--after about three episodes you become uncomfortable watching it. Which is probably a testament to the amazing humor that makes the show what it is.
