Image via Wikipedialets stay in the shallow end of my brain pool this time around shall we..lets talk t.v. & some shows you may not be watching but should ..now some of these are doing the summer vacation thing right now but the reruns will give you time to catch up..lets start with my favorite thing right away anime & some of the best are on the funimation network so if you have fios in the d.c.area its ch.257..now the best of these are "basilisk" & "corpse princess" both are tremendously gory & have great story lines great characters & as with most really good animes the main characters are flawed & subject to get whacked because unlike their american counsins & even with flesh & bone shows like law & order they realize in trying to be authentic good people can die as well as the bad..now thats the A+ list the A list is as follows "birdie the mighty decode" & "mushi-shi" which is slow moving but complex with beautifully done backdrops..now im not going to explain any of these shows just take 30mins reward yourself & check them out..on the A- minus list is just one show & thats on cartoon networks adult swim saturday line up "full metal alchemist brotherhood" this is one that you definitely have to start at episode 1. or youll never ever get whats going on..B list contains one show as well "bleach" also on that same saturday night line up & with this show if you start somewhere between episodes 1-10 you should be ok..honorable mention "futurama" which isnt anime but its really funny & on comedy central & "squidbillies" which is on sunday cartoon networks adult swim is a RIOT!!..now i love "american dad" etc but these other shows have probably gone under your radar but are awesome shows..now really quick the funny noncartoon shows are "its always sunny in philidelphia" which is the funniest show on t.v. period & is on comedy central followed by "childrens hospital" which is on cartoon networks adult swim thursday night..abcs "the middle" & "modern family" im sure you alreday know about..so until "boardwalk empire" & or "spartacus" fires up again this is the must watch list & the majority if not all should be on hulu.com which is free so you have no excuse not to watch other than you have a life..
