I've been behind the times myself...
Recently watched 3 seasons of Breaking Bad - Awesome. Hooked from the first episode. Still watching here and there but feel a little burned out after 3 straight seasons, so maybe an episode or 2 a week now to keep my interest.
Also, haven't seen it mentioned in the pages I read and still late to watching it, Prison Break. Here's my breakdown if anyone wants to know:
Season 1 - Awesome, kept me wanting to know what happens next in each episode.
Season 2 (first 3/4's) - Good flow from season 1, still kept me interested.
Season 2 (last 1/2) - Felt like the script was drawn out by now to make for a longer show.
Season 3 - Awesome, but not to the caliber of the first season. Kept me interested again.
Season 4 (first half) - Didn't care for it much, didn't keep my interest, seemed too drawn out again. Lost interest and haven't felt the need to finish it.
Also just started watching Heroes. About 6 or so episodes in. It's kept my interest so far, but it doesn't have that "gotta keep watching continously" feeling. It's about a handful of people that are 'special' (have powers) and over some episodes their stories meet up with each other. Has the occasional chuckle from a couple of Japanese actors!
The wife likes Angel, vampire tv series I guess. She's a huge fan of Twilight...
We don't really dabble into each others action/vampire tv affixiations, but together we enjoy the comedy tv series like Everyone Loves Raymond, 'Til Death, etc...
