That story's actually better than almost anything on television. I'd love to hear the details but I have no idea what thread that would fall under.

I don't really watch much tv nowadays. I'm a big fan of nature shows and real physical sports like Boxing and MMA, besides that I don't really find much that interesting as see a lot of television as nauseating.

I also watch C-SPAN once in a blue moon if someone interesting is on just because I like hearing people discuss idea.s

Supernatural, The History Channel, True Blood, A & E.I read more than I watch TV. If I watch 1 hour a day I am lucky.

What do you watch?


I only watch TV shows on DVD. But I spend a lot of time doing that. I love TV when it's my kind of show.

These are favorite shows of mine in no particular order, except that the first is my very favorite show of all time, and the second gets my vote for the most ambitious:

1. Bones
2. Battlestar Galactica (the remake)
3. Dollhouse
4. Six Feet Under
5. True Blood
6. Tru Calling
7. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
8. Angel
9. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
10. Rome
11. Stargate: SG-1
12. Xena
13. Carnivale

And yes, I'm hokey - or maybe OCD? - enough that if I can't list six things, then I list thirteen.

I'm all over the place. I watch way more tv than I should. Among the shows I watch:

Anything poker related. High Stakes Poker, WPT, Poker Stars Invitational, WSOP, Learn From the Pros, and Poker After Dark.


I also love poker but most of it screened in Australia is on digital or pay TV, and I have neither.

I love the clips I've seen of High Stakes Poker. As well as the big stacks of chips going back and forth there are guys throwing huge wads of cash on the table! Very cool.

My all-time top ten would go something like this. It's in no particular order (except for the first one.) I've decided to keep the music-related shows seperate. I may get to them later.

1. Monty Python's Flying Circus
2. Get Smart
3. X-files (First 3 seasons- awesome. 4th season- very good. 8th and 9th season- the non-conspiracy episodes were good. 5th, 6th and 7th seasons- execrable.)
4. Odysseus: The Greatest Hero Of Them All (Tony Robbins re-tells the great stories from The Iliad and The Odyssey. This show was one of the things that fuelled my childhood love of mythology. I still adore it!)
5. Astro Boy (thank bloody goodness I didn't forget this!)
6. Neon Genesis Evangelion (the first anime series I fell in love with when I could understand the culture behind anime.)
7. Cowboy Bebop (my favourite anime series)
8. Buffy The Vampire Slayer
9. Angel (I know it was SUPPOSED to be silly, but it got too much so after a while.)
10. WWF Superstars ( I watched it in the late 90s, when hardcore elements began to be introduced. I don't like what the WWE offers today much at all- too much fucking furniture.)

I watch TV way too much. My favorites are:
Monty Python
Family Guy
X-Files
Monk
Bones
House
Cold Case
The Simpsons
American Dad
The Cleveland Show
The Honeymooners
Beverly Hillbilies
Get Smart
MASH
Hogan's Heroes
Fresh Prince of Bel Air

I usually don't go a month without watching either of those at least once, but lately I've been favoring the first six.
I used to watch Wheel of Fortune every day hoping that my number would appear.

Anything about the universe. And I watch comedy central almost religiously. Love the skewering they do on the news. And I enjoy watching the oil come into the gulf. But mostly I am online writing something.

You do?

And why is that? I have a feeling that this comment, like many of your others, is a cheap ploy to elicit a response, but I'll play this time. What do you enjoy about "watching the oil come into the gulf" and why?

I think Lost was one of the best series ever done. I really like JJ Abrams and I think the way he weaves stories together is masterful.

I don't know if you ever watch TED TV, but the talk he gave there sort of re-framed how I looked at Lost (The Mystery Box).

You can watch it HERE if you're interested.

To the thread in general:
I tend not to watch tv on a regular basis. I really love Discovery ID though and find that when I do have a tv turned on it's mostly on that channel. Of the shows on ID, I like Main Street Mysteries, Unusual Suspects, Solved, Most Evil, etc.

They have a new one now called LA - City of Demons (James Ellroy) that I haven't yet had a chance to watch.

I like several old tv shows as well that I revisit on DVD from time to time. I loved Columbo, Kung-Fu, Beretta, Firefly and a few others.

I don't watch TV any longer but when I did, CSI, House and Criminal Minds were favorites and a whole lot of NGC.

NCIS too but I think Abby was to blame for that.
