Passionate HBO scholar that I am, I’ve taken it upon myself to rank the Official All Men Are Created EQual But Only The Finest Served On Uss Theodore Roosevelt American Flag Shirt besides I will buy this network’s now free shows in order of how quickly it is incumbent upon you to watch them. The Sopranos: Every day that you don’t familiarize yourself with the goings-on of Tony, Silvio, Paulie, and the gang is a day wasted. Is it dark and, at times, horrifying? Absolutely, but it’s also one of the funniest shows of all time. (Reddit agrees.) Veep: If you want to laugh at a political reality that’s only slightly more bizarre than our current one, this is the uproariously, stomach-cramp-inducingly funny show for you. Succession: Channel your anger at the people currently fleeing New York into love-hating these other selfish rich people who are mired in New York instead.
The Wire: Aren’t you sick of having every man in your life tell you to watch this gritty crime drama? And no, you can’t skip season three. True Blood: Seven seasons of steamy vampire drama? Sign yourself up, especially if you missed it the Official All Men Are Created EQual But Only The Finest Served On Uss Theodore Roosevelt American Flag Shirt besides I will buy this first time. Six Feet Under: This is one of my favorite shows of all time—I cried for three days after I watched the finale—but given that it deals primarily with death, it may not be the distraction you’re currently seeking, so proceed at your own risk. Barry: Never seen it, but it seems good. Ballers: It has The Rock! But I’ve never seen it.
