What do you think of this list?  The only ones I watch are Game of Thrones, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and The Walking Dead.  They are all quite good, I think. “Thrones” and “Dead” have great story lines and characters and really know how to throw in drama and twists and turns.  Curbed is just brilliantly funny…irreverent, sarcastic, biting (all my kind of humor), plus it’s all improv!!!!  Oh yeah, Vera loves Vampire Diaries, too.

I may have to get into Homeland, though.  And I have been meaning to get into Breaking Bad, too.  We’ll see, there seems to be little time for TV these days.

NEW YORK, Dec. 12, 2011 — TVGuide.com has named Showtime’s Homeland as its TV Show of the Year. The tense, twisty CIA drama, based on a successful Israeli series, explores the relationship between former POW Marine Sgt. Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) and Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), an ambitious, unorthodox CIA operative who believes that Brody has been “turned” by Al-Qaeda. The show is executive-produced by former 24 producers Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon.

While it was the pursuit of the show’s unfathomable central question — is Brody a terrorist? — that got us hooked, we’re now tuning in for the complicated, surprising performances by Lewis and Danes, who, with every episode, elicit both our sympathy and our scorn. Ultimately, the real question the show isn’t afraid to ask is: Will we, as Americans, ever truly recover from the devastation of 9/11?
