    Showtime has the Tudors. Love it.

    Starz has Spartacs: Blood and Sand. Just started watching this one and truthfully Im still out in the field on this one atm.

    I am a Doctor Who Fan - sorry to see the 10th doctor go, but will give Number 11 a shot. Tom Baker (the 4th Doctor) was always "my" Doctor due to my age, but David Tennant is real close if not tied.

    I am enjoying Survivors on BBC America, but not sure how many they made in the series so it may come to an end real fast.

    I have also been digging Caprica on SyFy. The pilot was OK, but the installments after have been rather good in my opinion. Very edgy.

    I love almost anything on the Science Channel, History Channel, Discovery Channel and the Learning Channel.

    I am also a fan of 24, Survivor and American Idol (the latter two we watch with the kids).

    I've been enjoying Rome and Tudors. I'm far behind on Lost, but I wanted to wait til it came out on Netflix so the commercials and such wouldn't drive me nuts. I also enjoy Leverage and comedy stufff (Venture Brothers, Sea Lab, etc)

    Some past series I'd recommend that are no longer being produced, but remain some of my all-time favorites.

    Firefly, Black Adder, Red Dwarf, Deadwood, Carnivale, Jekyll

    Especially in the last couple of episodes, Hettie > Ziva when it comes to goofy personality - nice to see that they are finally giving her a lighter, more human side - something that Mark Harmon/Gibbs seems to lack all too often.

    But for pure looks, and pure kick your teeth in while looking stylish in the process, it's Ziva, hands down.

    Tuesday is definitely my favorite broadcast TV night. Otherwise, it's Antiques Roadshow, Big Bang Theory, Gangland (History Channel) and Deadliest Catch (Discovery)

    My newest favorite is Tosh.0. I don't have cable anymore because I'm never home but my girlfriend DVRs it so I highjack her tv sometimes.

    On Hulu I try to keep up with my shows. Burn Notice, The Office, House.

    Shows I used to watch. Jersey Shore (Fist pump!) and Kings. I was really disappointed when they canceled Kings, it was one of NBC's better shows.

    I have to watch Dexter.
    I watch True Blood with my wife, but wouldn't keep watching it if she didn't want to watch it. (It's on right before Dexter here)

    I only watch Lost sometimes, since it's on Friday nights here (who thought about setting that program on Friday?!). I have given up on actually following the plots and just watch the interactions between characters.

    Other than that, there are a bunch of programs which I only watch when I'm not doing anything else, thus I haven't seen all of them.

    I kind of preferred her before they started lightning her character, although she's still my favourite in the series by a long way (with LL Cool J coming in second).
    You're right on Ziva though, especially comparing her with Caitlin Todd.

    Spartacus and Pacific are my favorites right now...

    I loved Deadwood and keep hoping that HBO would bring back Carnival...

    But I'm definitely a Spartacus fan now.....

    I have seen (and enjoyed) a lot of episodes of both Rome and The Tudors. But neither one interested me enough to continue paying for their channels so I could watch an entire season.

    The one show that will get me to spring for a premium channel is Dexter. Every August I order showtime for a few months, just so I can watch the new season of Dexter.

    Another great show. I wish they hadn't canceled it though.

    Breaking Bad has got to be one of the best series ever on TV...I HIGHLY recommend it and in fact, am on the PC right now because I watched the first three episodes last night and was so fascinated I was going to post about it on OTNHB Redux.

    For those that haven't heard of it; remember the Dad on "Malcolm in the Middle"? He plays a high school chemistry teacher who decides to cook meth in order to help support his family. It's a little bit dark humor, a little gruesome and a lot bit intriguing. It's the best show you've never heard of, winning all sorts of awards and stuff.
    Good show!

    I like the show on Cartoon channel that has the walking, talking meatball, milk shake that looks like the devil, and a serving of fries that has a lisp. They all live in a house in a run down suburb beside this big white guy that all of us know from somewhere in our life.

    It's really funny.

    Scrubs was one of the best shows on TV until NBC cancelled it. When it came back on ABC it was still decent, but not as great as it once was. That last season they had (I think it was called med school) sucked big time. I hope they just let the series die.

    Oldish thread :O

    I currently watch Covert Affairs (USA Network, 10:00 p.m. ET Tuesdays) and True Blood (HBO, 9:00 p.m. ET Sundays). I'd like to watch Entourage and Mad Men, but I just don't have the time; I catch up with DVDs. Also anticipating Boardwalk Empire :).

    I just finished up the first 2 Seasons of Dark Shadows on Netflix. OMG, horrific acting, ridiculous camera/boom work ( you could see the shadow of the boom guy in most of the early episodes) or you could see the incoming actor in the scene before they were cued to enter, it was hilarious.:thumbup1::thumbup1:. I highly recommend Netflix, I'm in the middle of Season 3 of Lost. If you've seen the entire series, go back and watch it all over again. Good stuff the 2nd time around.
     
  40. What do you think of the 11th doctor? I think they've done a pretty darn good job of keeping his character consistent yet adding a little more flavor.

    This past season was great...I'm curious who Dr. Song is and what the driving force behind the attempted erasure of time is. My theory is that the Dr. himself is at the root of all this somehow or another with his typical good intentions.
