My girlfriend is coming over to my place and I am cooking dinner and desert for her. After that, we'll probably watch a movie or something more insidious....

Hey Duders! Long time, no see!! I'll get to my recent years-long whereabouts in a blog post soon, but now I have an inquiry and need the help of the still best community on the interwebs!
I have been in the market for a new TV for a while but now I actually have the money saved up and I should be getting at least a little tax refund this month.
I have never been the most up-to-date on the TV industry, so I will need some help choosing a good one. I know the best manufactures seem to be Panasonic, Samsung and Sony. Other than that, I am kind of a novice as far as what Hz is best (60/120/240/..), whether to go with LCD/LED/Plasma or whether to get a Smart TV or just use those features in a PS4 or Xbox One, either of which I plan on getting later in the year when they get more games or the prices drop.
As for size, I was looking for around 44-46" range. For my studio apartment, anything over 50 would be kind of overkill.
Thanks in advance for the help. Let me know if you need any more info from me to give best recommendations.
Feels good to be back on a regular basis.
On a technical/visual level and just on a pure "the art of film making" standpoint, it would have to be 2001: A Space Odyssey. The movie is so well crafted, that it borders on a series of meticulously crafted paintings. 99.999% of all other directors would go mad trying to set up those set pieces.
But on an enjoyment standpoint, it would be Dr. Strangelove. The satirical writing and acting is so perfect that it holds up today just as much as it did when it was released.
I was looking for a job for 6 months before I finally found one. I am the Technology Coordinator or a charter school here in New Orleans. It pays well enough, plus it gives 100% medical, dental and vision. Not to mention that it is in a field that I enjoy and want to have experience in. I definitely got lucky with it.
Just hang in there and keep trying. You should get something temporarily to support while you look for a job you like. It will help put money in your pocket to support your real job search and it keeps you busy. I was a barback/security guard at a bar on Bourbon Street or a couple of months while looking for a job.
I work for a school, so I have the normal "9-5" type job. My hours are usually Monday-Friday 8-4. Sometimes I will go to 5 if I have to get something done ASAP. My hours aren't concrete since my job is salary based. I never work on the weekends, which is really nice.
In order of recommendation:
- Game of Thrones
- Boardwalk Empire
- Mad Men
2 & 3 are interchangble, but I would very strongly suggest Game of Thrones over everything else currently airing on TV. If you are looking for a past series, I would use the same recommendation level for The Wire. It might sound cliche, but it will change how you view TV shows.
