Just a few of my own opinions on suggestions already made:
Veronica Mars: I loved it. I still love it. Plus, Kristen Bell is just about the most awesome woman ever, and not just cos she is super hot and a great actress. She's a total geek and seems just as smart and witty as Veronica herself. I'm still upset that the network a) ruined the format with the 3rd season and b) STILL cancelled it.
Lost: I loved the first season and liked the second season (even bought the DVDs) but the third season was so bad. What's funny is that the only argument even die hard Lost fans have is that there was a good season finale. I'm sorry, but a good season finale does NOT make up for a horrible season. Not even in the slightest.
Brian K. Vaughan: Loved Y: The Last Man. I bought the first two volumes of Ex Machina. Good but not really keeping me buying (though I do plan on continuing to read the series).
Fables: I read the first two issues and wasn't really sucked in. Does it get better as you go along?
Harry Potter: Loved it. Read the last book within 24 hours of its release date.
My favorite character is definately Luna, who should have been the star of her own book, if you ask me.
, who writes Elsewhere so I can list it?
, you should DEFINATELY read A Confederacy of Dunces. I've tried explaining to people why they should read it, but I can never find the words. It's simply, in my opinion, the best single novel ever written in almost if not every way.
, I don't think I've heard of The Wire before, but I'll definately check it out. Has it already been released on DVD? I have Blockbuster online--that's usually where I get my movies and TV on DVD from when I'm too broke to buy.
And I don't see it mentioned here, but what about Heroes? I, of course, loved the first season. The finale fell short--but we all knew that. The second season was a step down, but that could just be cos the writer's strike. What do you guys think of it?
