Finished Blake's 7. 4th season was weaker than the rest despite a good first few episodes, and even though I knew how it was going to end that finale still hurt. Incredibly powerful acting from Gareth Thomas and Paul Darrow.
Also finished the third season of Mad Men. I enjoy it while watching, but the lack of any real driving story means I never get hooked and hammer through it like other shows. Will get around to the last 2 seasons soon.
Started Terry Nation's Survivors on the strength of Blake's 7 (his only other show). First series was fantastic. I'd seen the recent remake and thought it was okay, if a little "soft" and unrealistic, but the original is the exact opposite. Grim and unforgiving. In the remake, they have a party to raise their spirits during the first season, and it brings them closer together. In the original, they do the same, and one of their members gets drunk, rapes and murders a young woman, and then blames a mentally disabled man who is put to death in his place.

Seems like every show I attempt to watch is great. I'm watching Boardwalk Empire right now and I love it. Also getting Deadwood, Justified, Sons of Anarchy, The Wire, and The Shield.
All good choices. I've not seen The Shield, but it's on my list, and the rest are great (although I'm only 1 season into Justified, but I've been told it gets even better from there).
