With the exception of true blood these shows are why I got rid of my tv programming provider and went back to antenna tv. It is free, in HD for the most part and I don't get these and other crap programming on the idiot box. Now I understand the true meaning of idiot box. Thank the heavens I also do not get the other drivel such as, so you think you can dance, sing and the other reality shows that are a waste of air time and to you sponsors of this crap, I have also cleared out your products and stopped purchasing them because you support this kind of ****.

Even in true blood the acting, if this is what you call it is over kill and poor at best. Trying to convince your audience of the show, plot and outcome are for the most part sub par. Most of the lines related o the subject mater are mute points and I find hard to kept interested in the story line.

Wat ever happened to shows with thought out plots, comedies, sitcoms like from the 60's &70's.

Antenna ty programming by far much better.

The do****entaries on History, Geography and even Military are more entertaining than 95% of the programming on tv today, at least you learn something and are entertained at te same time.

So the crap that happens in shows like Big Brother and Glee is more realistic? that's why it's TV dude.  Nurse Jackie is head and shoulders above most of the garbage shows that are on TV today.  I have a feeling that if this show was on NBC instead of Showtime you would have said it was "gripping" maybe you should focus your gripes on shows that deserve negative reviews instead of picking apart one episode of a fantastic series.

There is no free TV anymore; you have basic cable or digital.

Not very observant are you Mario. Should investigate more on antenna TV before you spew off and you will find out there is still FREE ANTENNA TV available and it is in Digital and HD and again it is FREE. I have it, many of  my friends have it. And Richard you are either a girl or french as someone who watches shows like Glee, Big Brother, so you can dance, AGT, C thinks it HT and so on lives in a fantasy world and has no concept of entertainment......................
