For Mancave Dwellers Who Need Something to Watch During Cuffing Season When the NBA was Enuf

The sound you heard around 3pm on Monday, millions of jaws of cuffing season aficionados, who saw their down payment for NBA Season Pass morph into an evening at Chilis with their lady friend, hitting the ground.  That gasp…millions of women who now can claim victory over the remote control cause they know damn well that their male friend is not going to be interested watching Baylor-Texas Tech college basketball on a Tuesday night.  Winter is coming my friends, and thanks to the clown up above, we won’t be prepared.

Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

That quote “Winter is Coming” comes from a great book and TV show, Game of Thrones, which came on HBO during the summer.  This got me to thinking, men we don’t need to be afraid of a non-NBA winter season.  Sure our excuses to stay in the house of taken a hit, but now we just need to be more creative.  We can still hang with our ladies and still enjoy our TVs at the same time.  How is this possible without the sight of Basketball Wives, Baseball Wives, Bid Whist Wives, etc on the television?  Simple, we watch better shows; shows that we can share with our women and enjoy and everyone can go to sleep happy.  So fellas, keep reaching for that remote (inside joke there) and know that all is not last this season thanks to our Cuffing Season TV Guide: or The Wire All-Stars as I like to call them.

I call it The Wire All-Stars after the TV show The Wire.  Folks, not only is The Wire, in my opinion, the most meticulously crafted, rigorously acted, beautifully shot, and easily the greatest TV drama of all time (and I am not the only one that believes it – yes all of those are different links), it maybe the most gangsta program that you can watch with your woman and she’ll enjoy it.  I literally got a new lady friend off of our love for The Wire, and she had more opinions on it than I did.  Fellas, I’m telling you that this show could save your relationship.  She’ll beg for you to come home, just so y’all can watch the next episode.  Even the show’s weaker seasons (2 and 5) easily trumps the best seasons of other police dramas.  The show is so good, the main character, if you can call him that, is a non-factor in season 5, and the show still is awesome.  

Reach For That Remote With Confidence, Fellas

So all winter we at the Mancave are going to give recommendations for shows to catch up on, that your loved one should enjoy with you as well.  Because what is a mancave without a queen in the kitchen by your side in the cave.  From current masterpieces (Boardwalk Empire, Dexter, Mad Men), old classics (24 – which LBC will handle, Lost, Sopranos) and surprises (Friday Night Lights might be the best show nobody watched), we will have you covered all cuffing season.  And if you have recommendations yourself, feel free to comment on the page.   To leave you, here are the best quotes from the entire 5 seasons of The Wire.  If you have never watched the show, DO NOT WATCH THIS VIDEO!  If you have, sit back and reminisce on the greatness that was.

    Son great post, I been moving very slow on The Wire but it is good, and yes I agree Season 2 is much slower!!! than season 1 so far which probably why it is taking me so long to finish it, but other than that great. 2 still pretty good though. *will send my ignorant comments via text*.

    LOL to all those who thought the remote was theirs because no NBA hahahahaha #TheManCave06Swindle

    Well I for one am one who searches for the remote! lol

    I must be the first to say that outside of the NFL games and the occassional good matchup on Saturday nights, my cave is feeling quite depressing. More times than others, I’m giving up the remote to my wife! There really just anything of interest on these days. I don’t even feel a need to turn on SportsCenter and see them doing ANOTHER story on Tebow. Something has to give! Is there an AA group we can start?
