    Also, Scandal on ABC is another great show, particularly for the ensemble. Also, watch for a show called Suits on USA network which comes on during the summer and is a terrific show.

    I am eager to see what changes Aaron Sorkin will make on the HBO show Newsroom, a show with lots of potential, but had a tendency to be quite wordy in typical Sorkin fashion.

      Really enjoyed Downton Abbey, but it's first season was far better than the following.

      Suits is a great/fun summer show; in the category with things like Burn Notice.. great blast of old school entertainment... definitely good for a hot Saturday off the DVR.

      Newsroom had such potential.. but outside of being wordy, it too often puts people into situations that seem ridiculous or just too happenstance.. "oh, by miracle circumstance, I know someone who knows the real story"..
