The Watch List: Part VI
A lot has happened in the last month and a half. On the TV / Movie side of life, I stopped watching TED Talks, and got addicted to Breaking Bad, The Wire and The Walking Dead, as well as revisiting one of the best shows ever made—The West Wing. Other than that, things are starting to look a little sparse in my queues.
Luckily, the fall TV season is upon us, so new shows are starting fill in the gaps left by the completion of some of these series. My queue grows at this point only because shows like The West Wing and Connections and Inspector Morse aren’t yet available on Instant Watch. Hopefully that will change soon, as they are all perfect shows to watch on a whim (or as an all day, got nothing better I can do, marathon).
So anyway, listed below are the movies and TV series I’ve been watching since Part V of this series:

The Wire (seasons 1-4) is some of my favorite TV of all time. I was disappointed in the way season 5 dropped off.
Sort of like Babylon 5 after the shadow war was over…
We’re watching Breaking Bad on Netflix too. Every episode, we say something to the effect of, “Holy crap, I cannot BELIEVE how good this show is!”
