I just started watching Treme, and so far I love it. But a quick look over on Previously.TV pulls up a forum thread dedicated to the show called, "Not A Homework Show". Is this a show that is considered a show it takes a little effort to get into?
On that topic, what other entertaining things have you been avoiding because the idea of consuming it feels like a chore? I will probably watch The Wire after I finish Treme, it's been on my homework list for years now.
