DOWNTON ABBEY is fun. HOMELAND was pretty good. Season 1 of Walking Dead was fun too.
If you have never seen The Sopranos the first 3 seasons were great. Critics rave about The Wire- I could not get into it. Too many characters and not enough Baltimore accents. Mad Men Season 1 was good but I did not care enough to keep with it. I rejoined it this season and could easily follow it and enjoyed it.

TV is for winter when it's too cold to stay outside...and even then there's little worth watching.
Ummm, it's the opposite in south TX LOL!
Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!

It's hot in New Orleans too, but for some reason I seem to be able to think of lots to do. I am continually amazed at the fact that for me, retirement is so full and not boring at all.

We watched the first two new Dallases (Dalli?) last night when TNT re-ran them. Classic night-time soap drama with contemporary themes--not bad.

For TV we have limited interests:

PBS - Masterpiece Theatre, Masterpiece Mystery (or whatever the new name is), Nova, Nature, sometimes documentaries on Frontline

AMC - Mad Men, am totally hooked. You can see the past years on Netflix.
The Pitch, a reality series that shows 2 ad agencies designing a campaign in 1 week to show the client. The winner gets the client contract. This was 1st season, really fascinating. Our son just got a job with an ad agency.

Seinfeld - occasionally watch reruns and sometimes find one we missed
Judge Judy - watch this if you need to see what stupid things some people get up to. Not to be taken seriously.

I have taken to watching programs that I like on my iPad and am considering ditching cable TV since I hardly ever turn it on any more. I had a great deal for the first year (phone, Internet and cable for $29.99 per month) but now it's back to full price and I don't think it's worth it.

Two of my favourite iPad apps are BBC iPlayer and the Knowledge Network.
