Has anyone noticed how much better Showtime has gotten and simultaneously how HBO has gone downhill? The Showtime shows like Dexter and Brotherhood are excellent! Only a few years ago Showtime was nothing but the same rotation of movies as everyone else mixed in with soft core porn and low budget original shows aimed at select small groups of people like "The L Word". HBO used to have a bunch of great shows, but other than "Entourage", they don't have anything going on now.
I'm liking the Showtime shows too. I watched "weeds" last night for the first time and I liked that one too. Dexter isn't bad, but I'm really liking Brotherhood too. Scummy characters, but done well. It's very similar to the Sopranos in that respect.
