Br Ba is always pepic. i would suggest starting from season 1 though.
walking dead was ok, i watched a few but would always forget when it would come on so i sort of fell out of it.
if you own a netflix account, check out Party Down. ended show, has two seasons, but is probably some of the best stuff to ever come out of fred savage. (you read correctly)
stay away from the new Two and 1/2 men, the show has lost it and is nothing without the sheen.
i know you dont have HBO, but i show i have sort of fell into lately is How To Make It In America. decent so far, has potential.
it all sort of depends on what you are into. there is some good stuff out there. just have to find it, and when you do, you have to endure the commercials.
