  1. I watched the first 3 episodes. It's pretty good but there are so many other shows that are as good or better that I'm not sure if I'll keep watching.
  2. It seems like a lot of older stuff on HBO and Showtime that seemed so great back in the day doesn't really hold up now because long running story arcs have become common on TV shows and Breaking Bad set a new standard for writing that other shows are having to live up to. I recently tried to get into the L Word, but a show about lesbians that has long running story arcs just doesn't seem as edgy as it probably did 10 years ago. I got bored quickly, even with all of the softcore lesbian sex.

    Also tried to get into The Wire, but just found that Breaking Bad tackles the same subject matter much more effectively.
  3. Orange is the New Black is almost a complete rip off of Oz but because it's newer it's a bit more interesting.
  4. Yeah also I'd much rather watch a bunch of women have sex in prison than a bunch of men.
