Where did the time go, eh? These days, most likely it was invested in watching a box set. Clive James - a man whose illness has meant he's "run so short of time that time no longer matters" - has immersed himself in several and offers his thoughts on them here.
Of those he features, I've only seen Breaking Bad, and even then only the first four seasons of the six. The West Wing and the US adaptation of House Of Cards starring Kevin Spacey are all high on my "must watch" list (if I ever manage to find/make the time), and James does a good job of selling Weeds and the Scandinavian dramas too.
