Well, I just realized we don't have a bit in our profiles for TV shows, so I was wondering, what shows are you a regular watcher of? I watch 24, American Idol, Lost, Survivor, The Office and sadly both Wife Swap shows (They're very entertaining though)

Just discovered how good Battlestar Galactica is, so playing catch-up.

I keep hearing about Arrested Development, but I've never seen an episode. What kind of comedy is it? Is it similar to any other shows?

If you like Scrubs, then you'll more than likely enjoy Arrested Development. Doesn't work the other way around though.

Survivor, Smallville, Family Guy, The Simpsons (not so much any more cause they've gone down the tubes since like season 8 ), and some others. I really don't watch all that much TV any more though. I've gotten really into smallville lately though. I want to get into Lost, but I need to catch up on all of them somehow.

I want to see Firefly as well. Also, when you say "Pet and Pete", are you referring to the old live action show on Nickelodeon from the mid 90's? If so, that show rocked.

I left out: X3i (thanks for reminding me CX3 smile), and my friend recently introduced me to Sealab 2021 (I believe) <<Awesome show right there. I also left out the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Curb your Enthusiasm, and I want to catch up with Rome, but I am busy lately. I used to watch the Simpsons and King of the Hill. I watch Wife Swap and a few other cliched reality shows once in a while as well, but not regularly.

Sorry to leave out so much. smile

EDIT: And the Amazing Race.

In a day, I usually don't watch more than 1 hour of TV, DVR is the greatest invention for me because I used to not want to watch TV because it took up so much time. Now I can do it in my free time, on my own schedule.

I'll buy family guy on DVD once the season comes out, but I don't watch it because it airs the same time Desperate Houswive's airs, and I'll only watch that once, I also watch 2 1/2 Men, and Will and Grace, I watch South Park, and Survivor, and The Amazing race, and some of American Idol.

In order of how much I anticipate the next episode after having finished watching the episode of that week:
The Office and Scrubs (tied)
Lost
The Colbert Report
American Idol Auditions (Just started watching)
My Name is Earl (seen only a few episodes, but funny)
Desperate Housewives
Grey's Anatomy (people say I look like George O'Malley off of there, so now I pretty much HAVE to watch it, to keep up with certain insults I may field)

Only things I'm watching at the moment are:

Battlestar Galactica (seems to get better with every episode, after a slightly shaky start)

Lost (started brilliantly, but is rapidly becoming a bit poor now, unfortunately)

Life on Mars (UK show, one of the few that actually has a similar production quality to US shows)

ER (old, but still a good'un)

Also recently watched a BBC adaptation of Bleak House that was absolutely superb, and I'm also watching Frasier for the first time on DVD. Funny stuff.

What!? Soon to be canceled? That's really sad, as that show was one of the best shows with "situation " humour (as me and Sollthar calls it razz)

A damn great show, and heres the list of what I watch.

Family Guy (seriously, this is the best show I've ever seen)
Arrested Development (one of my favorites)
South Park (I don't care what anyone say, I love it)
My Name Is Earl (real fun)
Scrubs (allways loved it)
Simpsons (though it's getting rather boring compared to Family Guy, I still watch it sometimes.)
That 70's show (can be fun sometimes)
Seinfeld (when ever it's on the Norwegian channels razz)
Everybody Loves Raymond (when the other shows aren't on smile)

Indeed. Don't watch Serenity until you've seen all of Firefly, if possible - while the movie is still very entertaining without knowledge of the show, it is vastly, vastly better if you already know the characters and universe.

I highly recommend both - Firefly is probably my all-time favourite show ever, and Serenity is a damn good scifi flick.

As you're a Battlestar viewer, you may be interested that the same guys did the Firefly and Serenity effects.

How many series and episodes is there of firefly just out of interest, if it's only a small amount i may buy them.

As you're a Battlestar viewer, you may be interested that the same guys did the Firefly and Serenity effects.
Now that is very cool, im sure i won't be disappointed.

There's only half a series, I'm afraid, as it got cancelled by the (insert rude words) at Fox halfway through. Universal, being cool and intelligent, then picked it up to make a movie from it. The series boxset, which has pretty cool extras too, can be bought for pretty cheap these days.

I don't watch too much television actually, I tend to spend more time reading.... but...

Star Trek: The Next Generation. It's really the only show I watch semi-consistantly, even though it's only reruns these days. Such a classic.

I've also started watching Lost. A friend of mine turned me on to it after showing me a couple episodes from the Season 1 DVD.

Smallville

Lost
Beauty and the Geek

Desperate Housewives
Threshold
The Apprentice
The Office (US)

The US Office is pretty awesome actually, they've made the Gareth character (Dwight) a lot funnier, if that's possible, and just generally taken it in new directions, so in the end it's not worth saying the UK or US version is better than the other.

Threshold's now been cancelled and I'm not surprised. It was good but amazingly bad at the same time. Brent Spiner was laughably bad.

-Arrested Development (the BEST sitcom on TV)
-Scrubs (The other BEST sitcom on TV)
-The Office (tied with Scrubs)
-Lost
-24
-Family Guy
-Smallville (A completely underrated show, very cool)

Those are the best. Period. If you haven't seen Arrested Development yet, you need to, before it's cancelled.

Well FireFly had 3/4ths a Season. I believe Mr. Whedon had two ore three more episodes for the season. I oh so Hate Fox over that one. And Serenity is an excellent movie. I saw it 7 times in the theatres (First time about 4 months before it came out a shiney Prescreening) and I own it on DVD... Making my viewing total of it somewhere around 20.

Yeah, I'm a geek... Well I'm a Browncoat.

Anyway, Here is my TV list (When I have a chance to watch TV):

Battle Star (Excellent Acting, Writing, everything. Was happy to see Zoic doing the SFX. If you look in the mini series and a few times on the series you can see a FireFly class vessel in the BG)

Family Guy (I'm from Rhode Island, it's kinda a requirement and funny as hell)

Drawn Together (Ahh... True Reality)

Stargate SG-1

FireFly

That 70's Show

The Daily Show

Aqua Teen Hunger Force

Inuyusha

Cowboy BEEBOP

The Venture Brothers

Full Metal Alchemist

My Name is Earl

Scrubs

South Park

Seinfeld

Vernonica Mars

Six Feet Under

Of course I'm lucky if I watch TV about 4 hours a week. Two Jobs and School. Not enough time.

So I often am playing catch up on break or getting the DVDs from work.

The only shows I've ever gone out of my way to watch are:
-Monk (OMFG!!! I love this show!!!!)
-Prison Break (See above note.)
-Johnny Zero (hehe...this was cancelled by Fox a while back, but I liked it. Good action, but little or no acting/story)

I've been wanting to get into Lost, but I don't want to spend upwards of $50 on DVDs and/or iTunes downloads just to play catchup...I did buy the first episode and that was awesome. So I'm still wondering what that beast-thing was that tore apart the airplane.... biggrin

Other Shows I Enjoy:
-Arrested Development (Maybe it will pull a Family Guy, and Fox will pick up the contract again....)
-Beauty and the Geek (God, that's hilarious stuff...)
-24
-Simpsons
-Family Guy
-American Idol Tryouts
-The Dead Zone
-My Name is Earl
-Law and Order: SVU or CI
-Does baseball/football count?

It was cancelled after the second season, then came back because of how much after first-air audiences loved it. Same happened with Scrubs. I call it the "3rd Season of Family Guy Complex". It's almost definate that this is the last season, or at least so I have heard on E! and in some magazines interviewing Ron Howard. Sad, I hope it gets a repreive due to an overbearing audience, and stays on an extra season.

Yeah, I originally watched it in the beginning (when I was like 10-11) just because I thought Superman stuff was cool. Now, in the 5th season, it's become one of the most technically perfect, well-acted, good sfx, themed-show on television. Seen the 100th episode? The ending editing would've put me over one if I was the editor. Awesome show, worth a watch, and not CAMPY for those who disregard it because of the cheesy promos for it.

Scrubs goes there, and that's funny. Degrassi goes there, and it's the stupidest show on TV..............and it's Canadian. wink If you haven't seen Scrubs, watch it ALSO before it gets cancelled, since it too was originally cancelled and came back. I hate how (mostly NBC and FOX) punch-in crappy, underwritten sitcoms and due away with genuinely funny and well-thought-out stuff.

Anybody seen "Inside Schwartz"? It was on NBC for a season, a couple years ago. It was not only incredibly original and funny, but had well-written scenarios, and good characters/actors such as Brekin Meyer. (Road Trip)

The 100th episode was fantastic, as was the one aired a week later. Both were extraordinary. The ending of the 100th episode was the best editing i've seen on a TV show, and was actually very very touching, as was the end of the 101st episode, which, in its own right was as good if not better than the 100th.

The second episode of the fifth season, "Mortal", I believe it was called (where the kid highjacked the missiles), had two great scenes in it. One, where Clark got shot, and two, where Clark was dying and it montaged between him and Lionel Luthor waking up. Simply brilliant. If you haven't seen that episode, I'd highly recommend you did. Same with the premiere of this season, clark trekking through Canada or Nova Scotia or wherever he was was awesome.

Saying it would ruin the episode. But, long story short, Jor-El said at the beginning of the season that a life would be taken from someone Kal-El loved in exchange for his own, no choice. In the 100th episode, a major character dies, and the ending funeral scene is very well shot, edited, and just gives off such a feeling of despair. Plus it's at really high-exposure, done in slow-mo, and its heavily snowing, making it just very poetic and almost a tribute to the character.

If you haven't seen 4th or 5th season Smallville, you haven't seen the "real" Smallville. That being, pertaining mostly to a direct storyline of him becoming Superman and less sidestories about other "meteor freaks". Very good show, worth a watch.

Yeah, it really doesn't carry an incredible amount of emotional weight if you don't know the characters from the 99 episodes before it, but if you're a regular watcher (and I think i've seen all of the episodes except 1 of them), then really, the ends of the 100th and 101st episodes will have you pretty near tears, especially because of how eerily beautiful and masterful the editing and story telling is (especially for a TV show). It's something you just don't get in a 2 hour movie, but if you've lived with the character every thursday night for 5 years, and for basically 100 hours, then... well... you feel for them.

Lately I usually just keep FUSE running all day. I used to get so into tv shows, but now theres only a few that I make sure I watch every time they are on.

-The Daily Show
-The Colbert Report
-Family Guy
-South Park

I've seen episodes of 24 and thought it was amazing, but I can't get myself to care enough to catch all the episodes. Also, the whole rest of my family loves Lost, but I've never even watched an episode of it.

Arrested Development (The King)
Scrubs (is there a better relationship on tv than Turk and J.D.?)
The Office (British or American)
Con-Ob (Conan O'Brien)
Daily Show
Family Guy

And I loved Carnivále (but it got cancelled) and I'm just praying that Showtime picks up A.D because the "Home Builders Organization" won't save our Bluths.

In order of liking:

South Park - They make statements.. and they're hilarious.
The Office - Scrubs on steroids.
That 70's Show - Pickleweasel is not a funny word.
Scrubs - Good show, funny as well.
Monk - An obsessive compulsive as a detective. I love it.
Psyche - A great show, sort of like Monk.

As you can see, I only watch TV for humor. wink

The only show i've been watching on tv recently is hustle. I have been watching a few on DVD which are american dad, scrubs and family guy. I don't watch a whole lot of TV as most of it is crap and I don't have any form of digital television at home.
