Besides Lost, I have to say that my two favorite new shows right now are The United States of Tara and Breaking Bad. Toni Collette and John Corbett are are very enjoyable and entertaining in Tara, the new dark comedy about multiple personalities on Showtime. And I am catching up with the first season of Breaking Bad before Season 2 begins in March; I highly recommend that you do the same because the series completely deserves the critical acclaim. Bryan Cranston is nothing short of fantastic.
