I watched two episodes of Patriot and stopped. It seemed good enough that if I watched it without my wife I might be in trouble.Other than Patriot, which is the best show in the past X years, Endeavour is my favorite TV show. And Shetland.
I don't recall seeing it mentioned here, but PEN15 on HULU is also an excellent show. One of the two main characters is drummer extraordinaire Peter Erskine's daughter and that comes into play a lot in the show.
