I failed to mention that we've been watching some of the Showtime shows on DVD. Namely, Dexter, Weeds, and Californication.
Our neighbors turned us on to Dexter and Weeds a few years ago. Both shows are great. We enjoy Dexter slightly more than Weeds, though. Weeds started off as more of a comedy, but has gotten darker as the seasons have progressed. I kind of liked it more when it was funny, but it's still good. To summarize the plot, the show is about a young widow who becomes a pot dealer in order to support her family. Dexter is a pretty interesting show and is getting more interesting as the seasons progress. In short, it is about a serial killer who only kills those who have "escaped justice". Good stuff.
Californication, on the other hand, stars David Duchovny. If you read the tabloids, the show may very well reflect his real life. We're nearing the end of the 1st season and we've been enjoying it more than I thought we would (at least more than I thought I would). I've heard the second season isn't as good, but it's probably still worth checking out.
When we had HBO, we really enjoyed the original programming on that channel, so I guess it's no surprise that we like the Showtime stuff as well.
