Third Time's a Charm

It took a couple of false starts, but I am now officially hooked on "Game of Thrones." The first attempt was made by renting the discs from Netflix. Either I fell asleep during the 1st episode or it just didn't click, but I couldn't keep the characters straight. I never bothered to get the second disc. Then my cable company offered HBO for free one weekend. I tried again. I think this time I tried to jump back in at episode 3 which was where I had left off. Things still didn't make sense, so I gave it up. Now we have HBO full time thanks to Kitty and myself bitching at the cable company for them playing "bait and switch" with the bill. I went back to episode one and started over. Now everything clicked. The story finally grabbed me and the hook was set. The only downside is that I can't watch the show on demand through my t.v. I have to use the online site. *shrugs*

I'm finding out that there is actually quite a bit of good t.v. out there. Of course almost none of it is on the networks. The one exception has been "Under the Dome" which I have found to be quite addicting. We're also hooked on "Orange is the New Black" which was specifically produced for Netflix. So outside of "Breaking Bad" and "Dexter" what should I be watching? Any shows have you hooked?
