Treme, season 1

To explain why David Simon makes the best television in recent memory is nigh on impossible. Maybe it’s because that every second of his work values realism — be it in the setting or in the depiction of human beings and their interactions — above all else. Treme impresses in every area that The Wire impressed in some nine years ago.

NY Times on Boardwalk Empire

Screenwriter Terence Winter:

Thank God for HBO. They let you tell intelligent stories in a slow, careful way. You can let them breathe.

"Amazing things will happen"

An inspiring quote by Conan O’Brien:

All I ask is one thing, particularly of young people that watch. Please do not be cynical. I hate cynicism. It’s my least favorite quality. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard, and are kind, amazing things will happen.
