@sydney HBO would probably be considered one of the best. I personally think AMC has had some of the best original programming of the last 10 years (Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Halt & Catch Fire). Netflix is creating some amazing programs. FX is also taking some risks with their shows and I applaud them for keeping a show like The Americans on the air even when ratings haven't been so hot. The 4 major networks (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX) have basically fallen off my radar. I could count the number of network shows I watch on one hand.

@MarkWilson12 I actually didn't know that the networks had different reputations. I guess it shouldn't surprise me. Is HBO the one known for the best?

@sydney the most amazing thing about Mr. Robot (aside from the writing and acting) is the fact that it's on USA Network. That is a serious LOL to me because USA was known for substandard fare. They scored big time with Mr. Robot and I hope it reflects in future programming for the network. The Nazi show is exec produced by Ridley Scott and created by Frank Spotnitz (former X-Files writer) so there is some serious talent there. Speaking of Scorsese, he's involved in an HBO show called Vinyl that just started a few weeks ago. Scorsese even directed the pilot but I wasn't impressed with it at all.

@MarkWilson12 I actually am SO impressed by Mr. Robot's writing. Part of what I love so much is that it makes me think and reflect on our own world. Same with the Nazi one. Even Silicon Valley, so many inside jokes about the valley and tech (the caricature of Silicon Valley life even makes me think about some of my own habits differently). Mr. Robot and the Nazi show almost remind me of Coppola or Scorsese in some sense. Where the symbolism and thought is so deep. It's possible to enjoy the movie or show on the surface, but you can also peel it back and get so much juice

@sydney my wife's the same way about wanting her breaks to be light. We watch The Office a lot because it's light and easy. I used to watch Two and a Half Men all the time when I still had cable but we ditched that 4 years ago so it's either Netflix, Amazon or Hulu for me. It's a golden age of TV. The writing and production values are so much better than they've ever been. We're also seeing a lot of movie stars porting over to TV which was something that was virtually unheard of when I was growing up. Movie stars saw television as the death of their career. Not so much now.

@MarkWilson12 I LOVE Mr. Robot and Silicon Valley but have yet to finish either. Plan on doing that slowly and steadily tho! I think I may finish Silicon Valley first and then go into the others. My favorites were always the old Two and a Half Men episodes and Friends episodes haha. Don't watch anything regularly nowadays, but sometimes Big Bang Theory or Hawaii Five-O if I want to take a break. Usually like my breaks to be light, thus comedies with no substance haha

@sydney what are some of your faves btw?

@sydney I'm a big fan of Silicon Valley. I did prefer the first season over the second though. I'll be interested to see where they take it with the new season. Have you seen Mr. Robot btw? If not, that's another show I think you'd really dig.

@markwilson12 LOL yes i'm excited hahaha. What do you think of Silicon Valley btw? We might have a surprise guest coming soon ;) :D

@sydney - it's really techy and I feel like it would definitely be in your wheelhouse of interests. Imagine the show Silicon Valley as a drama set in 1983 in Texas.
