The Golden Age of Television is now

Forget I LOVE LUCY, Milton Berle and The Twilight Zone. The Golden Age of Television is now. There have never been more high-quality TV shows available as there are now: Homeland, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Battlestar Galactica, Lost, Treme, Friday Night LIghts, Mad Men, The Wire; not only are these shows full of great storylines and characters with good production values, the way we are able to access them has changed the nature of TV dramatically. We no longer have to wait weeks or months for the whims of some TV executive to schedule them. Now, we can download them and watch them in sequence over the course of several days or weeks, an experience making them much more like extended movies than traditional TV shows.
