What are your interesting/favorite tv shows, Present and past?

Watched Californication, all four seasons in one month. Caught up with SG:U in the second season. I like Mythbusters. Southland is decent, the cop show in the LAPD. Robot Chicken is good for some laughs. "coupling" from the UK was pretty funny.

What's a favorite of yours that others might not know of?

I liked Wings and Northern Exposure. Taxi was pretty good. Barney Miller.

Those were some off the top of my head.

I really need to watch "Californication". I've heard it's excellent and that David Duchovny really showed that he could leave his X-Files past behind him and do a role that is very different from that of Fox Mulder.

As for present shows, the only one I'm watching is Fringe but I'm behind since I'm currently watching the dvd's for season 2 and season 3 is almost over. However, I do plan on watching season 4 live.

As for past shows, I'll just give you my all-time top 10 list. smile

1. Battlestar Galactica (new one of course)
2. Babylon 5
3. X-Files
4. Star Trek: TOS
5. Rome
6. Firefly
7. Monty Python's Flying Circus
8. Mystery Science Theater 3000
9. Caprica
10. Twin Peaks

Current shows I like are Justified, No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain, and most of what is on Nat Geo, Smithsonian, Science and the History channels.

FX did not renew what I though was a decent boxing show in Lights Out but it dealt with the main character starting to show signs of brain damage due to too many hits...how far can you go with that? It was very good while it lasted out it's one season. FX also has a show called Archer which is illustrated and is definitely good adult humor.

I watch a lot of shows at On Demand on Optimum cable. Reruns of Sopranos, Deadwood, Entourage on HBO and past episodes of Dexter, Californication, Weeds and a few others on Showtime plus a ton of movies.

The On Demand stuff is the best ten bucks extra per month I ever spent on cable.

I forgot to pay homage to my man Al Bundy in Married With Children which being an early riser I catch a double dose of at 6 AM...in my opinion one of the funniest shows ever made...loved by everyone but shoe salesman biggrin

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the universe is for it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

We love "The Mentalist" in our home. It's one of those great shows where the entire ensemble is a terrific cast. Plus, the protagonist is one of those characters who sees through pretenders and tells people exactly what he thinks. It's a trait I have always admired in some folks that I've encountered.


"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." -- Ephesians 6: 12-13 KJV
