I love how TV is awesome nowadays, it's over-taken films really.
def and for 75% of the time its far more interesting and dosen't stoop to stupid levels of intellgience to get it to the big screen. The wire, mad men, soproanos, broadwalk, treme, GOT etc are really indepth explorations of certain themes. its fantastic.
The fact that big actors are flocking to do them. Its a cross between theatre and film. it sits in the middle. Gives actors a chance to act, but also the series give a chance to entertain on a film level.
another one i havn't seen yet is friday night lights, i got them stacked up on my sky box so shall get into them hopefully soon.
