HBO has provided me with yet another sweet addiction. This time around they've got me hooked on a show called K Street, and it's oh so good. At first I couldn't tell if it was real or not, and I was leaning toward the former. However, after this past weekend's episode, I realized that a lot of the backstabbing that was going on just wouldn't be possible given the fact that a show would be airing the following weekend thus spilling the beans. Then I noticed in the credits that while a good deal of the characters were playing themselves, there were a few exceptions.

The thing I like most about the show, though, is how good it is at making you believe it's real. You see these big-time politicians (like Howard Dean and Orrin Hatch) mingling with the main characters in tense, sometimes unbelievable situations. Then you've got these really complex and mysterious characters that slowly unravel before your eyes as you take in each episode (e.g. Francisco Dupre) and only leave you wanting more. Thanks to Steven Soderbergh and George Clooney I can add 'K Street' to the likes of 'The Sopranos,' 'Six Feet Under' and the Seahawks in terms of the what makes me crave Sundays.
