I haven't watch any of the pirate movies, but I don't watch any of the promising tv shows either so I guess one thing cancels the other out.
Did anyone catch the Hour? I missed it and am wondering if its worth watching.

"The Hour" Review: It's Not Exactly "Mad Men." In Fact, It May Be Better | Pajiba: Reviews, News, Quotes & Cultural Commentary
“The Hour,” like “Mad Men,” is a slow burn, but in just six episodes, pulls in more social, cultural and political threads than a full season of “Mad Men.” That’s not to say it’s a better show, but it is perhaps more dense and ambitious than Weiner’s program. But it’s also aligned with its BBC cousins, “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” and “State of Play,” in that it’s as interested in exploring the relationships between authoritarian institutions as it is in exploring sexual ones. It’s a fantastic show, brilliantly acted, deftly written, and easily the summer’s next best thing to “Breaking Bad.”
I'll add a show with a shelf life less than 6 weeks...."Whitney", I have seen 10 promos for it during Sunday Night Football this evening (including a clip that insults football fans). She isn't funny.
