Watching Anger Management nowadays.
Charlie is back but not with a bang!

The show is not something which cannot be missed (at least until now). Also the plot is not really justified to the title. I mean apart from Charlie being a therapist himself and few therapy sessions I don't see much of Anger Management. May be my expectations were high after 2.5 Men.

Homeland is wrapped up and boy what a final episode. Surely hooked for the next season.

Finished watching How I Met Your Mother, Sherlock and Walking Dead on Netflix. Now on to House of Cards. Four different shows and four different genres. House of Cards looks pretty interesting from first 2 episodes, will update once I complete the season.

Another animated series.
"young justice".
Its mostly about a new justice league,of young ones,taking care of business that the jla is too tied up to. So you have robin,miss martian,superboy,aqualad,speedy,kid flash operating out of mount justice, with red tornado taking care of the missions, and the older guys coming in quite often.
very well animated,with crisp episodes.

Anybody interested in watching edge of the seat, dark political thriller, check out House of Cards


Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright are the lead they have acted fabulous.

Ratings: 4/5

Absolutely. Spacey, one of the more underrated actors of our time, is fabulous in the House of Cards.

Also, in case you haven't, see Kelsey Grammer play the mayor of Chicago in "Boss". He is fantastic.

Wow I came here to announce and looks like you beat me to it.

House of cards is very engaging. Brilliant acting by Kevin spacey to say the least. That man feels perfect for the role.

Finished first season of 'House of Cards' on Netflix. Amazing politico-drama thriller. Loved the acting of all the main leads, especially Spacey and Wright.

Now hooked on to 'Monk'.
Anyone who liked and appreciated Karamchand, Byomkesh Bakshi, Tehkikaat from good old DD Metro days will fall in love with this series. Give it a try!

Didn't know you guys were discussing serials here, thought this was for shows. I stopped watching shows a long time ago. Yes, they make people shout at each other at the top of their lungs (watch "We the people", more like we, the loud throats).

Tried watching Anger Management, nothing excited me. 2.5 men has really increased the bar! AM felt like done in revenge of Charlie Sheen being thrown out of 2.5 Men.

Also tried watching 2 Broken Girls, which is on similar lines of 2.5 Men, after few episodes its boring again!

Definitely one of the best Medieval Fantasy - Dramas of this decade. Was also hooked to Spartacus: Blood and Sand and Spartacus: Gods of the Arena. Have to lay hands on Spartacus: Vengeance and Spartacus: War of the Damned.

Apart from that: Rome, True Blood, Dexter, The Mentalist, Grimm, Arrow are real good edge of the seat shows you can be hooked to!

Started watching following shows

- Heroes: Very exciting and gripping. Love it.
- The suite life of zack and cody: A good, funny, time pass show. Good laughs at all times.
- Happy Endings: A good show that reminds me a lot of Friends. I like Elisha Cuthbert so i will continue watching for ever.
- The Good Wife: Not many popular characters in this but its a great show. After completing White Collar and Suits this is another interesting tv show i liked related to law. A must watch.

I was really disappointed with Walking Dead Season 3 finale yesterday. I was hoping for some gripping action but it turned out to be a boring episode with few highlight scenes. My hopes for season 4 are still high for this unique show.

I think The Good Wife is much better than WC and Suits. My all time fav legal show. Once I watched 10 episodes non-stop. Waiting for the season finale of the current season so that I can download all the episodes at one go.

Watch Boston Legal. You will like it too.
