Sopranos is my favorite after MV. Mainly the first four seasons. Didn't really care for the last two seasons apart from Steve Buscemi.:p

Mad Men is right there with Miami Vice and The Sopranos for my personal favorites! Just a magnificent drama. Captures the style and music of the era just like MV did for the 80s. Also, it has a great cast. :thumbsup:

Besides going through MV again, I'm currently starting AMC's Mad Men. I had never watched it before...watched a couple episodes on Netflix and really liked it! :thumbsup: So, I got seasons 1&2 pretty cheap on eBay. I'll get the other seasons as I need them. Anyone else watched it...thoughts? It's not a cop/crime show. ;)

Believe it or not...I've never seen The Sopranos.  :o Maybe after MV and Mad Men. ;) But just FYI...from what I've gathered so far from special feature interviews on a Mad Men DVD set, a lot of the people who wrote/produced/worked on The Sopranos also worked on Mad Men--including Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner! Just found that interesting since several here have mentioned both shows recently. :cool:

I feel the same way and I am a huge fan of the show. I thought the first five were some of TV's finest since Michael Mann made his mark with Miami Vice and Crime Story but both parts of Season Six were mostly a bore especially whiny AJ from the second half the season. From what I heard it's probably because the creator David Chase was strongly considering ending the series at Season Four but HBO kept pressing him for more seasons. Buscemi was great in Season Five and he also directed one of the series most acclaimed episodes, "Pine Barrens".

It's a pretty addictive show. If you've seen Goodfellas it's a bit similar to that in tone especially the dark humor but has a deeper, more psychological approach to the traditional mob story. It also shares one thing with Vice in that it's very evocative of the era it was filmed in. The mob guys in it were very chatty about the world's many changes during the late-nineties/early 2000's and makes for an interesting return after living through that era.

Just started watching Starsky & Hutch, the second coolest cop show of all time. Also started rewatching The Soprano's. Just finished Burn Notice, and I thought, since it's winter I shouldn't really be watching my summer shows.

I finally started Mad Men. On episode nine of Season 1. While a little slow at the moment, you can't deny that the show is brilliantly acted and written. And the attention to detail is outstanding. I'm definitely gonna stick to it.

I finally finish Sons of Anarchy tomorrow. I'm gonna miss it. The first four seasons were definitely the best. Seasons 5 and 6 were a little dull but still enjoyable. I've heard bad things about Season 7 but honestly I think it's a huge improvement. Especially the last couple episodes. Intense.

Next show I'm gonna watch is Weeds. Looks kinda funny so I'm looking forward to it.

I started watching The Deuce. Lots of penises. It's the type of show which is best viewed alone, after everybody has gone to bed. There are a lot of sex scenes. It's about Times Square in the 70s. Pimps, prostitutes, pornos, vice. But James Franco's characters (Vinnie and Frankie) are the main plot of the series, twin brothers who get involved with the Mafia. The pimp thing is more a side-plot I think, but they kind of tie in because they hang out at Vinnie's bar.

The writing, story, the way they present the early 70s is great. Shows based in the past usually don't go beyond one season (mostly due to the costs of making it), but I feel like this is going to stick around for a few seasons. 

You might call me weird for this - But I sometimes skip sex scenes in shows if I feel like they add nothing to the plot. They just make me uncomfortable sometimes. Depends how hardcore it is. I'd be lying if I said I didn't skip a few in the first 3 episodes of this show. (I've only watched 3 episodes so far).

Wasn't quite sure about Brooklyn 99 at first, but now I'm hooked! Plenty of moments with great comedic timing and catchphrases that get stuck in your head.
