Fabulous is a state of being. For me, anyways.

I'm surprised there hasn't been any talk about this new series.  From the series' USA website:

Quote
GRACELAND is a place where nothing is what it seems and everyone has a secret. From the outside, this idyllic beachfront property is inhabited by a group of young, diverse roommates. Inside, a vastly different world is exposed: one that sustains itself through a complex web of lies. USA's new original series Graceland delves into the lives of an elusive group of undercover agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and US Customs, who live and operate under one roof (the house got its name because the drug lord from whom the authorities seized the property was known to be an obsessed Elvis Presley fan). When forced to give up any shred of normalcy and the question of trust is a matter of life or death, the house becomes their sanctuary, their "Graceland."

Graduating at the top of his class, FBI rookie, Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit) anticipates a traditional DC desk job when he's unexpectedly shipped to "Graceland." Immediately thrown into his first undercover assignment, he relies heavily on the guidance of legendary FBI agent and mentor Paul Briggs (Daniel Sunjata). Briggs is an unusually Zen senior agent who notoriously hates the rule book and will go to any length to protect "Graceland" from the outside world.

The show is based on true events and is fairly consistent in maintaining a level of anxiety and tension while the featured agents push the boundaries of their undercover personas.  Not to mention no shortage of "omg" moments.  The pilot grabbed me right from the start and since then Graceland has been a rare TV series I make it a point to keep up with.  It airs on Thursday nights, when I typically have softball, but Cox Cable's free On Demand service allows me to catch up with missed episodes at my leisure.  

I definitely recommend it.

It caught my eye, but I've been very lax with watching all of the summer TV shows I usually watch this year.  Maybe it was me taking classes in the summer semester, but my DVR is full of shows that I'm 4 or more episodes behind on.

I'll definitely check out the first season when it hits Netflix though.

Because I can,
also because I don't care what you want.
