Television!

I don't believe we've had one of these threads in a long while.

I assume that most swampies watch and enjoy TV. List your favorite programs! Word of mouth had led to me watching all of my current favorite shows.

LOST



What can I say? I'm in it for the long haul to figure out what's going on on that damn island!

Scrubs



Fantastic show, keeps me laughing all the way through!

Psych



Great show with fantastic characters and a fresh private detective concept. I highly recommend this show even if you actually do things on Friday nights. Hulu is a great way to watch it!

Firefly

Although it has been off the air for quite some time, it is a basically against the law to be a swampie and not enjoy it.



Please feel free to add more!

I used to watch Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares whenever I was on, but lately, I haven't.

Really, all I watch is sportscentre, hockey, and UFC.

I don't watch much T.V., but I started watching Lost during the 1st season when it aired and I got my entire family and most of my friends into it. I, too, am in for the long haul

I also really enjoyed Heroes season 1. Chapters 2 and 3 weren't bad, but I think they've been rushed. I wish they would have another full-length season to allow adequate plot and character development.

Psych is hilarious! I haven't seen this new season, but I'll probably get it on dvd when it comes out, or check it out on Hulu.

From G's to Gents. Legitimately entertaining. First season was fantastic (I watched it online). I'm looking forward to the next one.

Just me it seems. It went downhill after Carter left.

Yeah the show has definitely seen it's better days. I watch it simply because of the fact that this season will be it's last. :/

Awesome! Law and Order is also one of my fave "old school" shows. The friday nights of my childhood were usually spent watching it.

House is definitely my favorite show that's on currently. I also watch all 3 CSI shows, I would say that I like the original best, then Miami and lastly NY. A week or two ago I started watching Fringe and Eleventh Hour and am up to episode 7 on both of those, enjoying them pretty well so far.

I've watched most of the shows mentioned. They all seem to be pretty good, but I never watch TV on a regular basis, so I don't keep track of them.

I usually watch [adult swim] on most nights and sometimes the History Channel.
The last show I actually followed was Metalocalypse, but I don't even know when that's on anymore. And I watched about 5 episodes of Chuck.
I thought Death Note was pretty good.

There's my picks.

No, I rewatched Lost before the new season started, so I've been putting everything else off. Plus school.

Oh, I just remembered!

The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack.

I've actually been looking for a good picture of Flapjack to use as a avatar.

Currently, my favorite are the two newest USA Network shows - Psych and Burn Notice. The former for it's wacky off-beat detective humor, the latter for Bruce Campbell.

Other than that, I try to catch Battlestar Galactica(I've only seen a few episodes from each season - I mostly got caught up on a BSG Wiki) which is rather badass on pretty much every level.

Oh man. Death Note is definitely one of my favorite shows of all time, hands down. Same with Gungrave. That show was artistic. I love it.

Shows I have my DVR set to record (in no order):

Burn Notice - Spies are awesome.
Pysch - Hilarious.
Monk
Clone Wars - It's Star Wars.
Battlestar Galactica
FOX sunday evening cartoon block (Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad)
NBC's (Thursday? Wednesday?) evening Line up (The Office, Earl, 30 Rock)
Scrubs - Scrubs is so much better than ERrrrrr.
Terminator Connor Chronicles
Heroes
Lie to Me - Very interesting.
Two and a Half Men - Charlie Sheen is pimp.
Big Bang Theory - Very funny.
Trust Me
Leverage - Pretty awesome show.


You'd think all I do is watch TV... but when you skip commercials, it let's you see more.


Then there's:

Eureka - Great sci-fi show with humor.
Weeds - Pretty effin' crazy.
Dexter - Pretty effed up.
True Blood - Vampires and Anna Paquin.

Shows that aren't on anymore:
Jericho - I couldn't stop watching after the first episode. Thank god for Netflix Streaming.
Jeremiah - Same thing. Had to see what happened next.
Firefly - Sweet show.
Titus - Hilarious. Stacey Keach is awesome.
Dark Angel - The forum vets remember my Jessica Alba phase.
Andromeda
Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis - Can't wait for the DVD movies.
Star Trek Enterprise - My favorite Star Trek series. Suck on it.
Dead Like Me - Great show. They just came out with a movie sequel.

Right now, the only show that exists to me is Scrubs. Every tuesday has been Scrubs day. The new season has been constantly fantastic, and as sad as I am to know this is it's last season, I'm extremely happy that ABC is letting them end the show on their own terms, the way they want it to end, and most importantly the way the fans want to see it end.

Honestly though, I can't remember the last time I honestly just sat down and watched TV (all the new episodes of scrubs I've been downloading 720p rips of it >.> <.<).

I do want to watch Chuck and Psyche though. And I still need to finish watching Penn & Teller.

I don't really watch T.V., but I do watch Smallville (I know, I know) and Two and a Half Men online, regularly.

I do enjoy watching Family Guy, Mythbusters, and The Daily Show, although I don't watch them regularly at all.
