I did not want to start a new topic but this refers to television (actually cable tv).  Has anyone who reads this ever seen the HBO show "Oz" or the Showtime series, "Homeland"?  I am thinking about buying the complete series of both of the shows but want to read any + or - feedback first.  Are these two shows were investing time in?  Anyone?  Thanks in advance for any responses. 

You should like OZ. As a Breaking Bad and Sopranos fan, you will appreciate the myriad ingenious ways OZ had of killing people. Never got around to watching Homeland, so I can't help you there.

Fargo just gets better and better !

I had my doubts when this show initially aired but it's proven to be a winner.

Now....what about the new Twin Peaks? Anybody check it out yet? I've been too busy. I loved the first season or two of the original Twin Peaks. But I'm skeptical if Lynch can catch lightning in a bottle again.

I'm also curious about the new Twin Peaks - I wish I could see it (my TV package doesn't include Showtime, and I refuse to pay the extortionate extra fees involved to get Showtime).

There were only two series originally - the first series was phenomenal (the original pilot was as well); the second series started great (up to the revelation of who killed Laura) and ended great (with the surreal extraterrestrial storyline) - however, the middle of the second series was the ultimate in 'WTF?'.

I hope this third series imitates the first and not the second...

I haven't seen the new Twin Peaks yet, hopefuly Lynch can capture what he once had.

Thank, Strider.  I ended up buying both OZ and Homeland at the same time.  I watched the first two episodes of both to try and get a feel for each show and l liked both but I went ahead and continued to watch Homeland first.  Homeland is actually really good.  I watched the first two seasons in about a week and just started season three today.  I will start watching OZ the day I finish Homeland.

Homeland is the one with Claire Danes, right? Man, I thought she was so cute in "My So-Called Life".

I actually stayed in on a Saturday night for a change and watched the Angels game...and Pujols hit a grand slam for his 600th home run. Angels win!

Yes.  She is actually very good on this show.  I never watched "My So-Called Life" but I do think that she is attractive.  It's worth checking out if you have the time.
