Re: Favorite Current TV Shows

I have a DVR so I never watch anything when it airs-except Life On Mars, which is fabulous, IMO.

Heroes-I'm there.
Fringe-stupid but amusing.
Sarah Connor-I WANT to love it but am afraid it will go the way of the dodo-I already got burned on Journeyman and Jericho and I don't want it to happen again.
Bones-gotta have my Bones!
Charlie Jade-has Firefly syndrome-good show, short life
Primeval-if you have BBC America, this one is worth checking out. I let it build up a few episodes then marathon it-its more fun that way
Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives-like a car crash, it horrifies and yet you can't look away.
Cold Case-If you have to watch a police procedural, at least this one has an elf on it!

Did I mention Life On Mars?

Stargate Atlantis-dumb plots but good character interaction. And every once in a while you get an episode like Last Man....

As far as comedies-well, when I want to laugh I watch Sanctuary. What's that? It's supposed to be a drama? My bad.

And when the brain requires rest-House.

I forgot 2. Life, because its quirky, and Eli Stone, because its quirkier.

On occasion, anything poker related.

Nothing else really captures my interest right now...

My List--

Mad Men
Dexter
Supernatural
The Shield


Will be on list when they come back on--

Big Love

I also watch Heroes, but it's become purely (extremely) guilty pleasure. I'd quit watching if Adrian Pasdar ever left.

Battlestar Galactica - My favorite show of all time. Not bothered with much otherwise.

Re: Favorite Current TV Shows

Easy for me to do this night-by-night:

Sunday - Family Guy - the last several seasons have disappointed me, but
I still tune in for the once-an-episode LMAO moment

Monday - Prison Break - pure adrenaline rush each week
- TSCC - back-to-back with Prison Break...
Tuesday - Fringe - I love the Walter-Peter relationship
- L&O:SVU - hooked on Benson/Stabler
Wednesday - Pushing Daisies - very fresh, different from anything I've ever seen on TV
Thurs - CSI - love the team - hope the show won't be too different once Fishburne starts, Grissom gone
Fri - Life - Charlie Crews is one of my favourite TV characters of all time
- Numb3rs - I love the explanations Charlie always gives, good action, plus wrap it up with warm family moments...

Don't know which night - Dexter - friend provides me with taped copies - one of my favourite shows in the last 5 years
- Lost - catching up with the first 3 seasons on Space Network - will pick up new episodes when they air
- Poker after Dark - I'm a poker junky...
- BSG - all I can say is WOW

Re: Favorite Current TV Shows

Right now, only House.

I've pretty much given up on Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, but I'm eagerly awaiting the return of Criminal Intent.

Other than that, nothing until Lost, Dr Who, and Torchwood return.
