Living in Punxsy is fun except for these 2 days.

I'm glad it's a small town.

another Netflix series coming in April based in western pa, looks pretty good

Hemlock Grove from Pittsburgh author and director Eli Roth

The body of a young girl is found mangled and murdered in the woods of Hemlock Grove, Pennsylvania, in the shadow of the abandoned Godfrey Steel mill. A manhunt ensues—though the authorities aren’t sure if it’s a man they should be looking for. Some suspect an escapee from the White Tower, a foreboding biotech facility owned by the Godfrey family—their personal fortune and the local economy having moved on from Pittsburgh steel—where, if rumors are true, biological experiments of the most unethical kind take place. Others turn to Peter Rumancek, a Gypsy trailer-trash kid who has told impressionable high school classmates that he’s a werewolf. Or perhaps it’s Roman, the son of the late JR Godfrey, who rules the adolescent social scene with the casual arrogance of a cold-blooded aristocrat, his superior status unquestioned despite his decidedly freakish sister, Shelley, whose monstrous medical conditions belie a sweet intelligence, and his otherworldly control freak of a mother, Olivia.

PA needs to work on their road signs. the letters that are missing make the phrase "please drive carefully" deviously into something else.

This is awesome, they dropped $100 mil on house of cards, they are not joking around, outbid hbo and am currently. Arrested development is going to benefit big time from this

So I just finished powering through the 2.5 seasons of The Walking Dead in the last 3-4 weeks and was trying to decide what I thought about it. This led to me thinking about where it stood in comparison to other current shows I watch and like. Here are my thoughts on how I would rank these current shows, for whatever little it's worth...

Tier 1: Very good all the way around, no serious flaws
Mad Men
Breaking Bad

Tier 2: Still very good, but with a couple flaws (in my mind) that detract from my viewing pleasure
Game of Thrones
Homeland
Boardwalk Empire

Tier 3: Cool premise and central characters, totally awesome in parts, and still highly enjoyable, but containing serious flaws that require real suspension of disbelief/charity to get past
The Walking Dead
Spartacus
Dexter

I like your tier approach...though tier 3 looks like it was born to be boredwalk empire's soulmate. I'm surprised its missing from that one.
