    Personally, I'm starting to watch Family Guy (not appropriate for the kids.) Never watched it.

    The Mrs. and I have so many shows we want to binge watch we don't know where to start: Walking Dead, Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey....where should we start?
    I love Downton Abbey, but it can be dry if you try and binge watch it - just the Britishness of it. I really enjoy it, but usually do two episodes a weekend, tops.

    Which sucks because a lot of times networks won't give them more than a season to prove themselves. Seems like the weaker comedies that are more typical family shows are given more time, while other ones suffer.

    I'm thinking The B in Apartment 23 and Trophy Wife. I know there are a few other recent ones but I'm blanking.

    You're talking about Happy Endings, right? Absolute tragedy that was cancelled, I wish someone with a longer leash than ABC like FX or Netflix would pick it up. FX could easily pair it with either 'Married' or 'You're the Worst' on Thursday nights, both of which are excellent new shows if you guys haven't checked them out.

    Re: Friday OT - Binge Entertainment

    Went through House of Cards and OITNB pretty quickly. Kinda meh on OITNB, but LOVED house of cards and I dislike politics a lot.

    Also rewatched all of the New Girls in a few days.
    Not binge watching, but real excited for AHS to come out in October.

    TV - BB, GoT, The Walking Dead, Deadwood
    Movies - LotR, Star Wars (ALL OF THEM!!)
    Books - Harry Potter, if I have a long weekend and nothing to do I might plow through the whole series.


    ďUrgency,Ē Rhoads said. ďThatís exactly what I told our staff. Itís exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē

    Parks and Rec was almost a casualty. It took the writers and cast almost a full two seasons to really get it right. Season one borders on awful. You could see the potential, though.

    Re: Friday OT - Binge Entertainment

    Arrested Development - I will find myself wanting to watch one episode, and end up watching about 6 more before finally caving and watching the show all over again. I do this about twice a year.

    I need to get back to watching Always Sunny. This thread may have inspired me.
