    Whatever

    Green Arrow is a great character but they crapped on him in typical cheesy WB style.

    Heard Deadwood is the old west version of The Wire.

    Wow what a tough choice.

    I would immediately cut Skins, The Pacific, and Rome (although I was still a pretty big fan).

    If I had to name ONE out of those, Deadwood.

    But all the rest are must watch shows. I'd say you've got plenty of tv hours ahead of you.

    Try Meerkat Manor. Full of drama.Tosca, the rebellious daughter of the dominant female Flower, evicts her mother and becomes leader. Drama ensues.

    Sigh...Spartacus was a great show before Andy Whitfield died(lead actor).

    The first season was awesome. The second season was without Whitfield because of his illness, so it ended up being a prequel season but it was still really good. The third season was crap until the last two or three episodes. The fourth season is currently in progress and it's being slow-played severely. This is the last season, which is probably for the best.

    Liam McIntyre sucks ass as Spartacus. HOWEVER, there are lots of boobies throughout the show...

    And just my two cents on American Horror Story. It sucks. The first season was really boring. I found the characters totally uninteresting and stopped watching four or five episodes in. I watched the second season because the girlfriend likes it and I don't have anything else better to do. The characters were more interesting but the finale was REALLY anticlimactic. I honestly don't know why people go ape **** over this show, it's not about anything. It's just hell bent on being weird.
