So what are your favorite TV shows?

Currently, what gets watched is:
- Rome
- House
- Dexter.

Ashes to Ashes has been missed for two episodes now, after Life on Mars it's just too "thin". :/  Telly isn't much on, as you can see...

Recent favourites:
- Aforementioned  Life on Mars
- Deadwood
- Wire in the Blood
- Californication

Classics:
- Riget (the original, not the US remake!)
- Twin Peaks
- Blackadder
- Monty Python's Flying Circus

I don't watch much TV. I watch the NBC News while cooking/eating dinner. I like "Forensic Files" and "The Investigators" on TruTV. And I watch "Taboo" on the National Geographic Channel and "L.A. Ink" on TLC. I have chronic insomnia so I'll often be watching Food Network at 3am. I used to watch "Miami Ink" on TLC, but it seems to have disappeared from the airwaves.

Hmm...  Currently what I actually see is curtailed by a business dispute between my cable company and the owners of our local CBS affiliate.  But I have more than a hundred channels, there's always something to watch.

Favorite shows, in no particular order:

X Files (I'm still writing fanfic for this one, so it goes on top!)
Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives
The Closer (on TNT)
I Spy (Cosby and Culp, only, please)
Buffy
Angel
Bones
Firefly
Good Eats
Dirty Jobs (I, too, adore Mike Rowe)
Supernatural  (*sigh*)
Numb3rs
all the CSI shows. (I started with Miami; I like David Caruso and despised Petersen and Sinese... but they grew on me, and there's no cure.  And, now that I rather like Grissom, he's leaving the show!  Just my luck...)
Criminal Minds
The Mentalist  (Psych for adults)
NCIS 
Dresden Files  (liked the show; read the books.  OF COURSE the books are better... but the show was pretty good!)
Mythbusters
Fringe  (I like the mad scientist and his kid.  The others I couldn't pick out of a crowd.  I can usually pick out the female lead because the camera's on her so much...)
Babylon 5  (We are grey...)
Sanctuary  (even though the lead guy looks too much like Daniel Radcliffe)
Life on Mars (the British version, even though I'm sure I missed some of the references, never having been to the UK.  I watched the first series, but missed the second if BBC-America brought it over.  The American version I can't find on my local programs)
Beauty and the Beast (Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman)
Highlander: The Series  (Adrian Paul and Peter Wingfield were both better than Christopher Lambert)
Raven: the Series  (Highlander spinoff for Elizabeth Gracen, proving once again that the company did not understand their base demographic; they should have given a spinoff to Peter Wingfield and Jim Byrnes)
F/X: the Series   Cameron Daddo as a f/x tech in NYC, helping the cops out when he can...
The Sentinel  (Richard Burgi as the most sensitive man in the world...)


Yes, I watch too much tv. 


I never heard of Riget.  Did it have another name here in the US?

Oh yes, sorry to not coming back on this earlier! The remake is called "Kingdom Hospital" or "Stephen King's Kingdom Hospital". The original was created by the Danish director Lars von Trier and is available for US / UK audiences as "Kingdom". Sadly, the original story was left unfinished after two seasons,  as although written,  making the third and final seaspm didn't happen, due to three actors in important roles dying.

The original is well worth watching, weird & wonderful.

That's why I didn't watch the remake at all when it was aired.

Oh it really was, I had to stop watching after the first few episodes because I was starting to feel insulted. I have heard the original version was fantastic.

For some reason I kept watching, perhaps in the hope that it would get better.  For me it was the self referencing that annoyed.  There's a scene in which a security guard prominently raises a book he is reading so that we can all see he's reading a Stephen King novel.  In another, where a man has risen from the dead, a news reporter says that is is like 'something out of a Stephen King novel.'

SIGH.

That was what got me about his last Dark Tower book. For God's sake he wrote himself into the book. As himself. I mean really.

Clive Cussler likes to do that with his Dirk Pitt novels, too.

It's bizarre, really.

We have threads dedicated to favorite movies, bands and songs, but I noticed that we have none for favorite TV shows.

So what are your favorite TV shows?

I also love Dirty Jobs.

Are you joking?  Was it a big role?

Then again, the only Stephen King book I read (it turned me off reading King) was Salem's Lot, and the main character in that seemed to me to be Stephen King with a different name.

Yes. Sadly yes. And greatly ill conceived. I know that he's a big time writer, but his editor should have sat him down at the point and had a heart to heart with him.
Salem's Lot was OK, for early King. Most of his characters at that point were him with a different name, so you got that right   Cheesy
