Steve | 957 comments MAD MEN regularly; it's simply the best show on television. Just getting started on RUBICON. I'm a huge fan of Louis CK, so I've really enjoyed his new show, LOUIE, a lot; the episode with Ricky Gervais as his doctor had me rolling on the floor. I'm a sucker for interesting "reality shows," such as PAWN STARS on History Channel (a kind of amped-up, reality-show spin on ANTIQUES ROADSHOW) and reality shows that require contestants to have some level of creativity, such as PROJECT RUNWAY or TOP CHEF, neither of which I watch all the way through; I usually skip to the runway/food presentation portions, just to see what the contestants have made.

I really love the hilarious, irreverent FX shows IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA and THE LEAGUE. As for the major networks, I have a soft spot for the goofy fun of THE BIG BANG THEORY and HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, not to mention most episodes of THE OFFICE and 30 ROCK.

Robin *loves sexy books* | 6 comments i can't wait for 'it's always sunny in philadelphia' to start again.

just got caught up on 'true blood' last night.

and 'wipeout', i'm embarrassed to say is a guily pleasure of mine!

my husband loves 'justified'. i haven't seen all of those though.

Tom | 5315 comments TRUE BLOOD really leaves me cold, I'm sick to death of that vampire stuff. We tend to watch it because it is on before MAD MEN, and makes absolutely no demands on our attention, and the guys are hot, especially that Alcide guy.

MAD MEN, well, what is there to say? An entirely admirable show in pretty much every way.

Robin *loves sexy books* | 6 comments i think i might be the only person on here that hasn't watched mad men yet.

i'm thinking i need to get the first season on dvd. what season is just about to start?

message 6: by Steve (new)

Steve | 957 comments TRUE BLOOD is as far as I have gone with the vampires (haven't seen any of the TWILIGHT movies or read the source material). I enjoy it, as far as pulpy plot-driven shows go. I do really like Lafayette, though.

Robin, Season 4 of MAD MEN just started; it's four or five episodes in so far.

message 7: by Kellyflower (new)

Kellyflower | 20 comments True Blood (of course) LOVE Lafayette, they should have a little handbook of "Lafayette-isms"
Spartacus Blood and Sand
Pillars Of The Earth
I'm embarrassed to say this ..
Gossip Girl
and I'm trying to catch up on Justified and Hot In Cleavland.

Robin I haven't watched Mad Men either.

message 8: by Steve (new)

Steve | 957 comments Oh, jeez. How could I forget MODERN FAMILY, which may well be the funniest show on television.

message 9: by Baxter (last edited Aug 19, 2010 01:23PM) (new)

Baxter (julietrocksmysocks) | 589 comments Right now the only thing I'm keeping up to date on is Rubicon, which is just brilliantly engaging, and the occasional cartoon on Cartoon Network. But I'm also trying to go through Starz's short lived comedy show Party Down, an extremely funny show with the ever great Jane Lynch in it, and I'm trying to catch up on HBO's In Treatment.

Still haven't gotten around to watching Mad Men, which is killing me on the inside.

message 10: by Tom (new)

Tom | 5315 comments Gotta admit, I'm really just incredibly over Jane Lynch. I'll burn for it, I know, but I don't care if I never see her again.

message 11: by Steve (new)

Steve | 957 comments Heh, surprised no one mentioned GLEE yet. I can't stand the show, myself.

I somehow missed PARTY DOWN.

message 12: by Kellyflower (new)

Kellyflower | 20 comments I thought we were only posting shows on cable networks.
(even though I did mention Gossip Girl which is a non cable station)

message 13: by Tom (new)

Tom | 5315 comments GLEE turns my stomach. There. I said it.

message 14: by Tammy (new)

Tammy (tammymerlot) | 6 comments Loved Party Down!

I'm out of the loop on True Blood. I've only seen season 1 and part of season 2.

Got a kick out of seeing Lizzy Caplan in both True Blood and Party Down.

Not a fan of Glee - I don't understand it's popularity.

But I have watched Gossip Girl. (I have a teenage daughter in the house - she is also a fan of Pretty Little Liars.)

I'm off to check out Madmen. Sounds pretty good so far ...

no, i have lived without cable my entire adult life (and i'm almost as old as television itself) so you are definitely not alone.

nah, i started this thread (not sure why, i don't watch television) and it is clearly entitled television and cable...

message 17: by Kellyflower (new)

Kellyflower | 20 comments Phillip

We don't have cable either. I watch a lot of shows online or thru netflix. I find this almost better since I can watch a whole season of a show in a couple of days and not weeks.

This is how we watched Battlestar Galactica and got family members to do the same.

message 18: by Mawgojzeta (new)

Mawgojzeta I watch Weeds, Dexter, and The Tudors as they come out on dvd.

As far as shows I watch as they are running:

Trueblood - they are just all too pretty to stop watching (yet) but this season felt like a bit of a downward slope for me. Oh, and I am so sick of that Tara crying all the time!

Dr. Who

Stargate Universe

I love all those shows. Dexter, Weeds and The Tudors. The Tudors doesn't get much love but I love it. Can't wait for The Borgias too. True Blood is one of my shows but it isn't much this season except business, blood and special effects. The jokes are good. Right now I'm impressed with Hung. Wonderful show.

St[♥]r Pr!nc:$$ N[♥]wsheen pictures, pictures, pictures ||| ♥ Zin Uru ♥ |||| | 482 comments I like to watch Gossip Girl, which is always fun and I do it like several shows at one time since I don't get time to watch it episode by episode.

I am also trying to watch a few of those cooking shows, so far it seems like an awful lot of work but the food turns out amazing at the end of the show.

Steve O mentioned Project Runway, I used to love that one but don't hae time for it now. Oh Boy! I was quite mad about all the lifestyle reality shows including the ones where they do home makeovers.

Waiting for the new season of Dr Who, got bored waiting so did a few other shows on BBC like Torchwood (boring, but Jack is cute) Waterloo Road (don't know what happened to it) and something about dinosaurs called Primeval (hehe!)

Watched a whole season of Courtney Cox in Cougar Town, she looks fantastic, better than she did in Friends.

Lee (EL_Postal) | 15 comments Eureka is currently the only show I'm watching at the moment. I am watching The Wire on dvd though. Up to season three on that show. I heard Rubicon is really good, have to check that out.

message 22: by Mawgojzeta (new)

Mawgojzeta I am a bit excited about the new HBO series, "Boardwalk Empire". It has some really good (to me) actors in it!

Robin *loves sexy books* | 6 comments i'm also excited about 'boardwalk empire'. and 'eastbound and down' is coming back on. love kenny powers!!

message 24: by Lynn (new)

Lynn (lynnellingwood) | 167 comments I hope it is very good. I am just amazed at how good Hung is week after week. The Big C wasn't bad but since my mother died of cancer recently I am bothered by the Laura Lindley character chooses not to have treatment because she'll have to be taken care of. Believe me, people who don't choose treatment need care too and go much more rapidly. I think it might be more denial and the lack of bothersome symptoms at the current time.

Mary JL (maryjl) | 16 comments Just discovered HOT IN CLEVELAND. Betty White gets some great lines there.

DR. WhO--I've been a fan since the 1980's of the original show; I like the new series also.

Don't ask me how I missed it, but I only discovered THE BIG BANG THEORY about two months ago. I LOVE it.

And still a fan of LAW AND ORDER:SVU.

message 26: by Steve (new)

Steve | 957 comments Yeah, I really like The Big Bang Theory. It's silly and all, but Sheldon is great.

message 27: by Kellyflower (new)

Kellyflower | 20 comments Mary,
my family and I are currently watching season 2 of the Big Bang Theory. Sheldon is hilarious.
Now when ever there is a dispute we joke about "“Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock”

Hot In Cleveland is funny. Did you happen to catch the episode when she was talking about "He doesn't like to go down town" LOL

message 28: by Vanora (last edited Aug 25, 2010 09:24PM) (new)

Vanora | 10 comments Currently watching Dexter on DVD. I AM ADDICTED. Just started season 3 -- so don't tell me ANYTHING!!!

I've watched True Blood - season 1 & 2 - on DVD. Was disappointed with season 2. Have read almost all the books.

I do like Hot in Cleveland - Betty White is amazing. I did see the 'downtown' episode. Funny!

And am a fan of Warehouse 13.

I haven't watched Mad Men either, may have to check it out on DVD.

message 29: by Mawgojzeta (new)

Mawgojzeta After the comments of Mary JL, Steve-O, and Kellyflower, I reserved "The Big Bang Theory" season 1. It looks fun!

message 30: by Steve (new)

Steve | 957 comments Mawgojzeta, S1 is OK, but it really picks up speed in S2 and S3. I always give shows a chance to improve from S1.

message 31: by Mawgojzeta (new)

Mawgojzeta Steve-O, thank you for the heads-up.

message 32: by Kellyflower (last edited Aug 27, 2010 10:12AM) (new)

Kellyflower | 20 comments We actually started watching it from season 2. after we've catch up on all the seasons we're going back and watching season 1.

I actually had to watch about 4 episodes of Spartacus before I could really get into it.

St[♥]r Pr!nc:$$ N[♥]wsheen pictures, pictures, pictures ||| ♥ Zin Uru ♥ |||| | 482 comments I almost watched 5 mins of Till death or some thing but gave up in disgust, not!!!!!!!!!

message 34: by Tom (new)

Tom | 5315 comments I somehow managed to stay awake through the first godforsaken 20 minutes of HBO's BOARDWALK EMPIRE, and can't imagine giving it any more time.

message 35: by Robin (new)

Robin (goodreadscomtriviagoddessl) do not have t.v. cable only for dvd,etc.

message 36: by Lee (new)

Lee (EL_Postal) | 15 comments Currently watching Chuck, Fringe and The Event at the moment. Catching up watching The Wire and Breaking Bad on DVD. Finish watching the 4th season of Eureka.

message 37: by Cindy (new)

Cindy (Webalina) | 583 comments I guess there's something wrong with me. I don't watch ANY of the popular shows. I'm a fan of Ghost Hunters, Dirty Jobs, Ice Road Truckers and Mythbusters.

message 38: by Robin (new)

Robin (goodreadscomtriviagoddessl) I used to watch Myth Busters, Dirty Jobs until it got too dirty,Ice-road truckers just to see where they drive, whhooee.

message 39: by Robin (new)

Robin (goodreadscomtriviagoddessl) i used to be hooked on them.

message 41: by Bill (new)

Bill (kernos) | 141 comments On DVD: Just finished all the Star Treks and Spartacus. No doing the Stargates from the beginning, Supernatural and I, Claudius. ANd, we're watching Leave it to Beaver to end the day.

message 42: by Jim (new)

Jim (jim_) I've been watching the original C.S.I. for the longest time. I missed Peterson when he left, but Lawrence Fishborne took over where he left off.

message 43: by Robin (new)

Robin (goodreadscomtriviagoddessl) Don't watch television, Killed the cable before the summer started.

message 44: by Robert (new)

Robert Beveridge (xterminal) So, okay, to say the reviews of The Walking Dead are mixed would be quite an understatement. What say you?

Hypothesis: can divide the mixers into two camps, those who have read the books (or even knew they existed) and those who haven't. Discuss.

Me, I liked it.

(Since I don't think I've ever actually weighed in on this thread--I only have basic cable anyway--the only series I really make an attempt to follow that are first-run are Sons of Anarchy and now The Walking Dead. Everything else is either regular TV [House, Chuck, Bones, Fringe] or long in syndication [I'm a really, really big fan of certain britcoms].)

message 45: by Tom (new)

Tom | 5315 comments I've been watching and enjoying SHERLOCK, the new series based on the classic Conan Doyle stories, updated to 21st Century London. Good fun, I think, with an able cast, especially Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and the great Martin Freeman as Watson.

The stories are updated, but not dumbed down. There haven't been any by the numbers adaptations so far. The first episode is entitled A STUDY IN PINK, and hasn't very much at all to do with the Doyle STUDY IN SCARLET aside from some basic bits. The killer in STUDY IN PINK, in fact, seems more derived from PRINCESS BRIDE and NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN than anything else. The series seems to be taking great delight in subverting the Holmes conventions while honoring them at the same time. The Mrs. Hudson in this series isn't quite like the Mrs. Hudson from earlier adaptations, you'll know what I mean.

The best part of the show is the chemistry between the leads, Cumberbatch and Freeman. I've never seen Cumberbatch before, but Freeman is an old favorite, having been delightful in the original BBC version of THE OFFICE. He was also one of exactly two people in the unfortunate film of THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY who seemed to Get It.

I like this series. They've only done three so far, apparently I'll have to wait until next year for more, or even longer, as Freeman has been cast (brilliantly, I might add) as Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson's film of THE HOBBIT.

Myra | 123 comments I've been enjoying THE WALKING DEAD. And I'm one of those who never read the comics.

message 47: by Gigi (new)

Gigi | 44 comments I'm addicted to Supernatural, True Blood and the Tudors

message 48: by [deleted user] (new)

Working my way through the second season of GILMORE GIRLS. I like the literary references, though the constant back and forth chatter can occasionally be tiring. Overall I like the show.

message 49: by Cindy (new)

Cindy (Webalina) | 583 comments If life is fair, and I've been a good girl, when I die I'll go to heaven. And in that heaven will be a "Restaurant Row" featuring every establishment and dish featured on Food Network's "Best Thing I Ever Ate." I love to eat, and that show is like porn to me!

(In reality, I know that life is NOT fair, and none of the above will ever happen. But a girl can dream...)

message 50: by ???!!! (new)

???!!! | 11 comments Hey! You all. I've been reading your posts for the longest time and having a great time LOL! Finally I gathered enough courage to write this post. It's really because I totally agree with what Cindy wrote. I love "The Food Network". I'm not sure I'm a good cook but I'm trying. With "Best Thing I Ever Ate" I actually took notes so if I ever do go there I know where to go.
