Speaking of Justified, you should post your thoughts in its thread on the most recent episode since I felt it was one of the best of the series. Also, Stephen King reference.

Still haven't seen the latest episode yet actually. Working strange hours this month.

I have it on my DVR and I will watch it when I get home in the morning.

Fuck man...It is going to blow you away. You're probably avoiding the thread but a lot of us are saying it might be our favorite episode of the series.

Awesome. Wouldn't expect anything different from the show though - the build up has been so good, so I'm expecting a great payoff.

I'll let everybody know what I think at some point tomorrow.

I feel the complete opposite. I enjoy it, but I think it's pretty overrated as a series.

The acting is great (Claire Danes especially), but the writing was inconsistent and just flat out bad at times in the second season.

For some reason Justified and Breaking Bad are still underrated.

Breaking Bad is underrated?

Aside from The Wire I can't think of another show more frequently mentioned as the best series to ever air.

People that watch it say that. But it is perennially passed over during awards season.

Cranston and Paul have won, but the writing and the series as a whole has been overlooked and beaten out by inferior television.

Well if we're talking awards then The Wire is the most underrated show of all time.

1. Homeland's decline in quality from season 1 to 2 is one of the biggest I've ever witnessed. But even season 1 is only top-tier television in the Showtime spectrum, i.e. it can't compete with a mid-level HBO drama.

2. I don't think I've ever heard someone say something negative about Breaking Bad, which is a bit scary—makes it feel like a cult.

3. I would take The Wire any day, and yeah, even though I don't care about awards, The Wire never got what it deserved.

The Wire is one of my favorite shows ever, but it's not currently airing so I didn't bring it up.

I brought up Justified and Breaking Bad because they're better than Homeland, yet Homeland gets more pub and more recognition.

My roommate could definitely ruin #2 for you.

Homeland gets the award love for one year, but it's hardly a critical darling like Breaking Bad or Mad Men. The first season, yeah, it got it's fair share of praise. The second? Not so much.
