Re: Favorite Current TV Shows

Shows Currently on Air I Watch in Approximate Ranking Order:

1. Battlestar Galactica - One of my favorite shows ever. I still wish it had gotten a fifth season but at least it's getting another TV movie, extended lengths for the last 10/11 episodes and another series of webisodes. I think this is a show people either love or hate (like Enterprise) and I love it. The only thing I am worried about is the ending. It will either make or break the show.
2. Dexter - Great show. Hopefully they will call it quits after Season 5 instead of milking it.
3. Heroes - Season 1 was awesome, Season 2 pretty good, Season 3 great so far. It feels like there are too many storylines going on to fit in a 42 minute show though.
4. House MD - Great show and characters.
5. True Blood - Pretty good so far but I don't think the premise has a lot of depth in it so the show should only go a few seasons. They rely a bit too much on titillation of the audience.
6. The Office - Usually pretty good but I feel like it will go on far too long. Plus I think I am remembering a few times they talked to the camera guy which takes me out of the story. Dwight is a bit annoying these days, just completely stupid sometimes.
7. Family Guy - It was Good/Great for the first four seasons but nowadays is either great or horrible. This season has had two awful episodes and one almost excellent one. I love the characters except Cleveland so that makes up for some of the less than great scripts. Honestly, if it doesn't have some great episodes this season I might make it my last.
8. Pushing Daisies - I like the characters but I feel the show isn't going anywhere plot wise and it's becoming a bit too fluffy.
9. American Dad! - Consistently better than Family Guy but I just don't care about the characters or even like any of them that much.
10. Reno 911! - Only occasionally funny these days. Not even sure if it's coming back for a sixth season but it hasn't been cancelled yet so it's likely. I wouldn't miss it if it ended now though. I would actually be glad it couldn't get any worse. Plus I HATE it when they talk to the cameraman -- takes me right out of the episode.
11. Degrassi: The Next Generation - I seriously might stop watching this soon. Should have ended after season 7 or done a college spinoff with the original characters instead of sidelining them.

My problem is I keep watching TV shows even when their quality goes to crap. I just can't stand not knowing how the story ends.

Life on Mars, definitely. Awesome, awesome show. Harvey Keitel and Jason O'Mara both rock.

I would have also said all three Law & Order shows but SVU is the only one that's on at the moment, and it's been unimpressive so far.

Currently? Brothers & Sisters, Big Bang Theory, Pushing Daisies, CSI, ER and Numb3rs. But I'm trying out Life on Mars, Eleventh Hour and Sanctuary. And if I had showtime I'd be watching Dexter season three.

Re: Favorite Current TV Shows

The only shows that I go out of my way to watch are:
How I Met Your Mother
Stargate Atlantis
The Office
The Amazing Race

I'm also really enjoying Z Rock, but the acting needs some work. I really want to like Life on Mars, but I'm just not feeling it yet.

The Office- Instant Classic.

South Park- It's dropped a bit quality wise, but it still amuses me enough to keep watching.

Jon Stewart - actually one of the better political shows out there, and really funny.

Bones -this is a fav of my girlfriend, I like it alright

Supernatural -another girlfriend fav, also good.

Pushing daises - this is one of the more interesting shows around. really quirky and fun.

Re: Favorite Current TV Shows

Currently in production / will return sooner or later / not cancelled: Only Heroes, Pushing Daisies and Lost. I'm undecided about Fringe and Sarah Connor Chronicles, both of which have been dropped by the channel that screens them here (to the surprise of absolutely no one ). There's nothing else out there that's of any interest whatsoever to me.
