R. Martin’s fictional fantasy novels, A Song of Ice and Fire and is approaching its 4th season.

Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad on AMCAh, drugs and science!  This amazing AMC series is currently in its last season.  If you haven’t kept up with Breaking Bad, you can check out previous episodes in a Marathon viewing.  It’s a story of desperation, of inner turmoil all done with a decent amount of action and dark humor.  We see a chemistry teacher end up in the seedy and often disturbing world of crystal meth.

What he will like: It’s a smart show.  Breaking Bad moves along at a great pace and did I mention the action and the drugs?  Oh yea I did.  The science is solid and as accurate as it can be without becoming a DIY guide to meth.

What she will like:  There’s real depth here in the relationships between the characters.  While some of the episodes can get a little crazy, she’ll enjoy it none the less.  It’s a show that despite its content has an underlying theme of family values, devotion and moral consequences.

Orange is the New Black

Orange is the New Black on NetflixOrange is the New Black is a Netflix original series about life in a woman’s prison.  Sounds hot, I know.  It’s not exactly like those 70’s B-movies about wild women behind bars, but there is a heck of a lot of lesbian talk.  This is a character driven series, about to enter its 2nd season is undeniably written with women in mind.  It focuses on the turmoil, relationships and back stories of the women, how they were incarcerated and how they deal with their current situation.  There’s humor and more light moments than you might expect from a prison show.  Oz with girls this is not, but you know a group of women locked up together won’t exactly get along.

What he will like:   Even if it’s written for women first and foremost, there are many genuinely funny scenes and characters.   Lesbian love is a consistent theme in every episode…there will be some mention of it, a good lesbo joke or some girl-on-girl fun in the showers or other common areas.  It’s not overloaded with nudity but there’s enough to keep him interested. Oh and Donna from “That 70’s show” is there with hot hipster glasses and dark hair. Ya that’s right!  Nerds will also notice Capt. Catherine Janeway working not on “Voyager” but in the Prison Kitchen, engage!

What she will like:  While Orange is the New Black is set in not your typical location, the relationships and the issues faced by the characters seem realistic.  It features solid side-stories and the characters are believable.  It also features an alt-rock theme song that will stick in her head, believe me.
