Deadwood, followed closely by Entourage.

I like the Sopranos but basically after season 1 it's just been getting worse. It's tough to follow up season 1 since it was so ridiculously good.

**** Dirt, you beat me to it. I was going to put up an Ari avatar. That guy is ****ing classic. I dont think the show would survive without him.

I've been a fan of Jeremy Piven before most people knew who he was. PCU was one of my favorite movies of '94.

That's how it'd go, but it'd follow up with me saying:

http://www.bittorrent.com/index.html

After getting bittorrent then go to www.isohunt.com and www.mininova.org for all of your downloading needs.

Oh, and sucks to be you, for sure.

I cant decide between The Wire or Deadwood. Hmmm probably deadwood as that seems to just be getting better whereas I didnt like the 3rd series of the wire as much as the second.

The Sopranos has steadily been getting worse for the last few series. They seem to be running out of ideas which for me was proved by them spending almost an entire episode on abstract dream sequences...which they've done a couple of times in the last two series if i remember right.

I really like Oz and Da Ali G Show, but the current crop of HBO shows aren't that good IMO. I just can't get into Big Love, Enterouge, or Deadwood. Sopranos and Larry David are also good shows.

Im really surprised by people saying the sopranos is or has been getting worse. I disagrre, but thats me.

Plus i love the dream sequences, they have been done better than almost every other dream sequence ive seen in any film or show.

BTW, The sopranos is brilliant to watch wen stoned, dreams or no dreams. There is so much going on under 'the surface'.

Entourage is my favorite show on TV. Ari Gold is one of the funniest tv characters ever.

Man Deadwood just keeps getting better.

Bullock is the biggest badass ever.

Looks like Doc Cochoran isn't going to make it much longer.

Meanwhile I'm looking forward to the standoff between Dan and the Captain.

I have to agree. I cannot remember the last time I was hooked by a TV show like I was hooked by Carnivale.

Sounds like I need to start watching Deadwood. I have had HBO for years but have never watched that show. Im not sure why it doesnt appeal to me even though I like westerns.

Did anyone see Lucky Louie last night? I thought it was the funniest episode so far.

I have not watched Deadwood either but have heard it was good.Some shows I start and if they don't catch me right away I never even try them again.......I guess sometimes thats my loss.

Lucky Louie...that's the funniest show in a long time...I think I releate well to the characters...my sense of humor is a lot like them and I think most guys will love this show...although my wife who hates most of the things I love, loves this show...go figure...

Lucky Louie is a good show. I've only seen a few episodes but it is funny. Plus the wife on that show is easy to look at. I remember her from a lot of late '80s and early '90s shows and B-movies such as The Gate 2.

The best was Curb Your Enthusiasm, they have a new season coming out! YAY..

But Sex and the City, Big Love, and Carnivale were ones I never wanted to miss :)

Also I didn't see on your list "Mind of the Married man" which was also good but lasted only 1 season :(

The Wire hands down, Oz second but other than the Sopranos there was no realer show than The Wire, even still The Sopranos wasn't better because The Wire was based on the streets, real **** based on real people and it was more believeable cuz they casted real street people with no prior acting skills, thats what made it vivid, wait till late 07/ early 08 for season 5 and you will see why The Wire is not just the best show on HBO but on TV period..

HBO on demand is great. The werid thing is almost every HBO series i watch i like. But i dont watch but a few. Without a doubt the Wire is #1. Curb Your Enthusiasm is as funny as it gets. Entourage is tight as **** but i think the show is kinda going down. I should try to follow a few more. like maybe deadwood, i hear nothing but good things about it.
