    I watch Real TIme, even though I am a Republican I liek Marer because I think he exagerates to get laughs, but some of his guest annoy me.

    BTW once the Dark Tower show starts it will beat everything on every list.

    I like Law and Order SVU too. Some episodes get a bit boring though.
    I've been watching House since it started. I never miss an episode.
    Dexter is very entertaining. Love it.
    Sometimes i watch Castle. But when i look at Nathan Fillion i get Firefly nostalgia :(
    I've seen Shameless (english version) and i wasn't very impressed.

    Dexter is great too, I think if they wanted to they could do a Dune show like they are planning with Dark Tower

    I've always felt like Dune (first book) is almost perfectly mapped out to be done in an hour long episode format. Give maybe 1-2 seasons for the first book, and then a season each for Dune Messiah and Children. Then have a miniseries GEOD to branch into the Heretics/Chapterhouse books.

    I'm going back and catching up on X-files, since I never really watched it religiously. Its so obvious from season 2 that Scully and Mulder are in love. I'd forgotten how many great one-off episodes are in the series.

    I think next on the list might be firefly (again)

    I don't watch much TV, but shows I'll watch if I catch them are:

    House (yes, still. Hugh Laurie is *still* superb).
    Grey's Anatomy (or "House for Chicks", as my wife calls it).
    Bones (or, "House, but with Dead People", as I call it)
    Lie to Me (or "House, except with an English guy doing an English guy instead of an American guy", as I call it).

    I'm still very proud of The Quarry but … let's face it; in the end the real best way to sign off would have been with a great big rollicking Culture novel.

    I've seen House, I keep expecting him to call for Jeeves.
    Not that he's not doing a good job...
    Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.

    Hey, excellent that you know that show, D Pope.

    I'm a fan of Stephen Fry - Jeeves to Laurie's Wooster - I must admit. Mostly via Youtube, tho.

    I agree, that ol' boy needs more work in the states. He did a good job in Vendetta but outside that I think i've only seen him in hairy BBC clips.

    I love House as well, but I don't get to watch it; I have no TV. :(

    I'm watching through Spartacus: Gods of the Arena online though... :shhh: I mean to watch Firefly someday as well. Serenity was great and I want to share in the disappointment (of it being cancelled). Big Bang Theory is another great show I mostly miss.

    When I'm at home on the weekends I watch NCIS as well. I think it's amazing anyone can watch Law & Order; the pretentious moralising drives me insane.

    I mostly gave up on TV quite awhile back, so much of it is just so Bad. I keep my eyes open for anything interesting though.

    I love How i met your mother and Big Bang theory, or The Sheldon Show, as i call it. And i forgot to add Breaking Bad, one of the best things on television right now. Highly recommend it.

    My boy scared himself to death this morning watching a show called "Zombie Crocs" on NatGeo. I woke up hearing, I thought, a cat whining outside. Turned out to be my boy out in the sala, huddled under three blankets and rolled into a ball with only one eye pointing to the TV. I told him to turn it off and he said, "but Dad, zombie crocs aren't undead. They just have no control of their brains, so it's not too bad for kids." So I laughed and let him watch and when it was over he ran into bed with me and the Mouse.
