Catching up on resolutions

Happy 2011! Hard to believe we’re halfway through January already, isn’t it?

So this is the time of year where people make resolutions for the new year. (Well, a few weeks ago anyway. But between moving, getting sick, and getting snowed in, I haven’t had a lot of free time.) Last year, instead of making a “best of the decade” list, I made a list of shows I wanted to watch in 2010.  So how did I do? Let’s see:

Freaks and Geeks
Sons of Anarchy
The Wire
Mad Men

Not watched:
Battlestar Galactica
Breaking Bad
The Sopranos

4/10. Not great as a goal, but as a general statistic, completing (or catching up on) 4 shows in a year is pretty good. Of course, I did get sidetracked by other shows – Community and Cougar Town both had one season under their belts when I got around to catching up.

So this year, I resolve to watch at least 4 more of these “best of the decade” shows. After all, if watching Mad Men gave me the beauty (in more ways than one) of Jon Hamm, and The Wire gave me Bubbles and Omar and Cuddy, who knows what Breaking Bad and Oz will bring? (Probably a lot of grief and angst.)

Any suggestions on other shows I should catch up on? They don’t have to be currently airing; in fact that might be better in the long run. There are only so many hours in the day, after all.

Video of the Day: Favorite TV relationship of 2010: Don and Peggy, y’all. Don and Peggy. Also, if Jon Hamm doesn’t get an Emmy for his work on season 4, there is no justice in the world.
