if anyone is looking to add a guilty pleasure (sex and violence) show to their list of things to watch, you might want to check out Banshee.

INSIDER would probably like it...

i'm watching it. i enjoy it, but it's hard to make it thru an episode without shaking your head at least five times. the mma fight was excellent violence.

Yup, it's a guilty pleasure.

Been watching a lot of Archer lately, one of the funniest shows I've seen in a while.

I saw a commercial the other day and it looked pretty funny, definitely my sense of humor. I'll check it out.

I think along with your assessment that age might be a requirement, i think it needs to be recognized that it comes from a very female–centric point of view. Which is pretty cool, but it's so uncommon that it can get you off-balance at times.
I finished the first season last weekend and loved it. I love that all the characters are flawed and the show assumes you've got a pretty healthy sense of compassion.

More power to Mike White and Laura Dern.

Quite riveting.
first 3 or 4 seasons are really good. I find it went downhill after that. Funny there was suppose to be a movie after the series was over I guess that never panned out

yep, don't understand the hype at all. and the dialogue is cringeworthy - they're always insanely witty and finishing each others' sentences. it's gilmore girls but with dudes in the big city wearing suits.

Sarah Shahi was in Person of Interest (only show I watch on network TV). I hope she stays on

Suits is done. nothing resolved. feel like they add drama for the sake of adding drama.

I havent watched the finale yet but Suits is pretty bad imo. First season was good, I just watch for the hell of it now. Arrow is better than Suits and that's a network tv show.

Spartacus is airing tonight I believe

sex and violence?
you had me at sex.

looks like i'll be doing a little downloading this weekend.
Banshee is in the queue now, and i think Archer is on netflix so i'll watch a few eps of that too.
my buddy at work was telling me about suits, but after the reviews of some of you guys, i dont think i'll waste my time there.

Suits is hit or miss, depending on what kind of TV you enjoy. I agree with Windex that the first season was decent and then it gets crappier and crappier. I just hate when shows can't make up their minds about whether they are going to be dramas or soap operas. And, if it's going to be a drama, I prefer it be somewhat realistic. Even when it tried to be a drama, there was stuff that was just totally ridiculous going on, that would never come close to happening in real life. If I'm going to have to suspend all notions of reality 100%, I'd rather watch a guilty pleasure, like Banshee.

For a while, Suits was super pretentious and trying to be a drama but had the stupidest, just completely unrealistic scenarios. Based on the last few episodes, it's starting to look more and more like a soap opera. I LMAO at the Gilmore Girls comparison by 'thought. I haven't seen many episodes of GG so I don't know if it's accurate, but Suits is definitely getting more like a soap opera.
