Looking for the best show on tv?

Look no further than the Shield on FX, Tuesdays at 10 pm.

I will have more in depth thoughts on this landmark season after it ends next week, but it has already earned itself a spot in the "top tv shows of all time" list just due to its achievement in the field of excellence. The show refuses to sit on its laurels and just coast. It gets better with each episode.

For the uninitiated out there, pick up season 1 on DVD right now. If you aren't hooked by the end of episode 1, I will give you 5 dollars.*

I do think that so far this is the best season of The Shield, which is certainly saying something. Pretty much every episode has been better than the one before it, which is pretty damn amazing.

However, counting all 20 episodes of the season I believe Battlestar Galactica was better. Have you started watching it yet, Faze? It's truly incredible. What they did in the last 3 episodes, particularly near the end of the season finale, is one of the ballsiest things I've ever seen.

I absolutely love Forest Whitaker. He has amazing acting chops and I watch largely to see him (season-6) perform.

From his appearance in fast times at ridgemont high as "big black guy on football team" to his role as "guy chasing frank dux through hong kong and threatining donald gibbs with a taser", I knew whitaker as a keeper.

Oh and kyle, unfortunately I haven't been able to catch up yet with BSG, but I am looking forward to it.
