    Earnest TV that doesn't short change women

    Recently, I just caught up with Mad Men. I find it fantastic in the same way I found Six Feet Under revelatory when I first watched it: not only do both series take themselves seriously, providing meaningful insights without overdoing the schmaltz factor, but they both feature strong (well-developed, not necessarily strong personality-wise) female characters. They also feel distinctly earnest, because the shows are never so campy or cloaked in irony that the emotional appeal gets distorted. I really value the ability of television to develop characters so thoroughly, and I believe that television is really well suited - moreso than other forms of media - to provide insight on human relationships. SFU and Mad Men do this in spades. I don't watch comedies that often, but I really enjoy Parks and Recreation because it manages to be funny without squandering that power.

    Unfortunately, I've found that a lot of other acclaimed series who achieve that earnestness are centered around men to the point of silencing the female perspective. If a show is going to explore the complexities of human relationships and society, I need for it not to ignore or trivialize women. The Wire was a great series, but the ratio of male characters to female characters is about ten to one. I've only watched a little bit of Breaking Bad, which is similarly a sausage fest. On the other hand, I can't stand what's offered as the quintessential feminist show: the acting on Buffy makes me cringe, and the show is way too campy to have any sort of impact anyway. Comedies seem to be a little more equal-opportunity, but I really can't stand when something is built up to be emotional and then trivialized by a joke. (Community, I'm looking at you.)

    I realize this is a little long-winded, but I until I saw Mad Men I forgot how much I could be wowed by a TV series. I'd like to feel that again.

    How is the public transportation in Los Angeles?
    Me and my husband are planning for a long weekend trip to Los angeles for sightseeing. Please tell me how effective is the public transportation in los angeles.
    Is it better to hire a cab or to depend on the public transport? (Budget will be a constraint but not a compromise)
    Also tell me the places that we shouldnt miss to see.

I joined to learn the real ins and outs of the game. I think its an interesting, entertaining sport. A big fan of the new orleans saints, and the pittsburgh steelers. Hoping to learn from individuals in this group. Plus sports are good convo starters(ladies)

    Im guessing Payton goes to Denver. Good defense and some capable WRs in a weak division...could mean playoff runs...
