Last year, we started marathoning our way through Mad Men in anticipation of season 5. I’ve just started working through Breaking Bad (I’ll have a post up soon with some early impressions) and I also just recently finished the first two season of The Wire. The critical and cultural acclaim of all three of these shows have vastly overshadow their rather modest ratings. If you’re plugged into certain sections of the TV critic blogosphere, it seems like everyone is constantly talking about these shows, so eventually we just had to get around to watching them. There are other critically beloved shows that I need to catch up on too, like Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Deadwood. Netflix, HBOGO, and Hulu all make it easy to see what you’ve missed. Now all we need is more time in the day.
Which popular, critically acclaimed shows do you feel like you’re missing out on? What’s next on your catch-up queue? Let us know in the comments.
