Totally agree on Rome. A great show.....took a few weeks to get me into it, but I watched it religiously on Sunday nights from Day 1. I thought that Octavian takes over...or is that later? Some power struggle or something between he and Marc Antony.
Next. I would like to start a boycott of the new Sopranos. I mean when was the last year of the Sopranos?? I think it was the year after I graduated from high school, but I can't remember!!:) What a joke!!
The layoff has been unreal. I believe it has been two years since Season 5. Season 5 started around this time in 2004. The layoffs since season 3 have been ridiculous. Really killed a lot of the momentum after the first 2 seasons.
Didn't get into Deadwood, but I may try to catch up on it by watching it on DVD (I would think its on DVD.)
Do yourself a favor, and WATCH Deadwood. I had absolutely NO interest in the show when it first came out. Through a family member I was told it was great.....I have no love for Westerns.....so one day when going through my On Demand stuff I saw the first 6 episodes of Deadwood available....so I watched the first episode and loved it so much I watched the next 5 right in a row without stopping.
Al Swarengen is clearly one of the best TV villians/bad guys of all time. Guy is great. The writing is great. And, the production is great. Powers Boothe as CY Tolliver is another great baddie as well.....
