I don't watch TV live, if there's a show I want to see I DL it.
Notable stuff people should watch within the last year:
Game of Thrones
HBO is killer for TV that engages you.
Also for movies, some oldies but goodies:
Snatch/Lock Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels
Prince of the City (if you love cop dramas)
R.I.P. PRIDE FC
Jon Jones . Travis Browne . Demian Maia. Cain Velasquez. Fabricio Werdum
