Mostly I watch anything. I suppose my list of favorite shows would be:

House
Criminal Minds
The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
Project Runway

I like T.V. dramas, like Law and Order, most crime shows except CSI, and most cartoons. I watch a lot of anime too. Recently I've been watching reality T.V. because it's on. Project Runway, America's Next Top Model, and things like that. Also all of those stupid VH1 count down things and stuff, like Reality T.V. Stars: Where are they now? and 50 Least Metal Moments. Stupid stuff really. Partly I wish they would put something interesting on television, and partly I wish I could separate myself from the allure of the glowing box.

What do you watch?

When I don't have any academic projects hanging over my head...

Colbert Report
Family Guy
Heroes
Daily Show
Torchwood
Scrubs

Pretty much in that order. Most via my computer while I'm cycling or on the treadmill.

I don't watch a lot of T.V. cause of the lack of interest i have for commercials as they seem to all get worse and worse every day. Some shows i watch though before i go to sleep or to class are:

Family Guy
Drawn Together
Scrubs
House
Daily Show

And on some occasions if i happen to stay up late i will watch some anime like:

Dragon Ball (Regular, Z, GT)
Inuyasha
Ghost in the Shell
One Piece

I watch movies more often than i watch shows though, mostly because HBO and Starz don't run commercials.

When I'm bored I watch

America's/Australia Next Top Model
Tyra Banks

Don't watch alot of Aussie shows but alway watch the Aussie Big Brother for a little while anyway, I've usually lost interest by the time they get down to about 5 people although I like watching the Friday Night Games

I love Casualty. It's basically a UK version of ER, which demonstrates nicely the problems with our NHS.

As for transatlantic imports - South Park is pretty fucking hilarious. It can be quite insightful too at times.
I loved the movie Bigger, Longer and Uncut (released back in '99 so a bit dated now) - I still count it high up on my list of all-time favorites. It really turned swearing into an art... \:D

T.V.?

That's that ugly screen in the living room yea?

The one that old people and kids sit around drooling at?

Never got into it. .

Although Australia has a few unique shows i used to dig.

CNNNN (A parody of CNN - fucking funny too, if a little soft, but meh, they've got to stay on air)

It's spin off, Chasers War On Everything. (These are the guys that got passed the security perimeter during the recent AIPAC meeting in Oz, dressed as Osama Bin Laden - you might have heard about it).

And way before that there was a show called John Saffran's Musical Jamboree. Hilariously subversive show pitched as a behind the scenes music program.

I used to watch Rowan Atkinson's Blackadder too.

And The Office as well. That was really good. The American version is terrible. The British original was great.

Well worth punching in the first three into You Tube for those non Aussies; CNNNN, Chasers War On Everything and Musical Jamboree or just John Saffran.

Pretty crazy TV.

You know it's terribly funny how many people start with, TV don't watch it, yet go on to list many a program.

Apparantly it's uncool to watch TV. Meh, like undeadridinghood I'm a bit of a pop culture whore, it's a bit of people watching without having to leave the house.

Atkinson was pretty funny in Mr Bean.

I enjoy British comedy as well as the transatlantic kind.
'Bottom' is/was a hilarious show - very crude too. Lots of 'nut cracking' slapstick. A live show of theirs was based around a plan to seduce the Queen \:D

The movie version of Bottom, 'Guest House Paradiso', featured a very un-PC comment about the late Princess Diana.

Caused quite an uproar I believe ;\)

Seems like House is pretty high on most people's lists. I was skeptical about this season, losing the old team and all, but so far it's pretty good, which is exciting. Of course, I think they're going to bring everyone back to their old positions, they're already back on the show and I've heard rumors to that affect on the internet, but I like some of the new guys too.

Dexter

Curb your enthusiasm
South Park
America's next top model(my wife makes me watch it and has brainwashed me)

Have started to detest the simpsons over the last few years and the movie sickened me.

bring back arrested development and shoot seth green straight between the balls for killing robot chicken and tainting every thing he touches with his slimey cock fingered claws.
