Fiction, top picks in recent times

  • Dexter (superb)
  • Breaking Bad (crystal meth (not crystal MEF))
  • Terriers (much better than expected and great vibe)
  • 24 (great suspense, with absurd decision-making)
  • The Mentalist (light but good entertainment)
  • The Walking Dead (prettty cool; gotta love zombies)
  • House M.D. (one radical, but ingenious, doc)
  • Futurama (funny, extremely funny)
  • Weeds (drugs and family, pretty good)
  • Sons of Anarchy (bikers, corruption, gun trades, drugs, IRA, ...)
  • Medical Investigation (a new twist on medic shows)
  • Testees (low-level Canadian humor; too bad it was cancelled after just one season; jack-* on steroids: two friends set out to take part in a new experiment every week, with disastrous consequences)
  • Rubicon (paper-based intelligence puzzle - midly entertaining)

Gotta love US TV series.

Science & Documentary

  • The Universe (a must-see)
  • Sci Fi Science w/ the brilliant Dr. Michio Kaku (equally a must-see)
