Lost, 24, Family Guy, and South Park. But the greatest of these is Lost.

-Family Guy
-The Simpsons
-King of the Hill
-American Dad
-South Park (On occasion).

I gotta say, Family Guy and King of the Hill are probably the best to me, though South Park has the BEST overall messages with regards to society and politics.

What's Lost about?

Law and Order (all varieties), The Boondocks, Minoriteam, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Family Guy, local news and a few other shows. I don't watch them on a regular basis, but when I do watch TV, this is usually what is on. I <3 Tivo.

Monday Night Football /\

9:00PM EST Snoop Dogg just did an intro for "Are you ready for some football?" - that was pretty funny beacause he was giving a pep talk to a bunch of kids and none of them could understand him.

Lost, Prison Break, House, Reunion

I concur with Clive...the greatest is "Lost"! :tup:

I'm addicted to Nip Tuck (nandy, you rented yet?) I really like house, 24, CSI, DH, Six feet under & Curb your Enthusiasm.
Although, we are in the playoffs for fantasy football this year!

TV? What's that? I know I must be way out of the loop, because I don't even know most of the shows you guys are talking about.

I don't get to watch much TV. When I do, it's usually a movie or a football game.

Lately, my husband has been addicted to National Geographic and The Learning Channel. (I can't begin to tell you what a relief that is from his normal line up.) We were watching Dirty Jobs (or something like that) last night. That show was cool. I don't know many Prime Time shows where you can watch a guy whack off a boy big and impregnate a girl pig all in one show and have it NOT be some kind of disgusting fetish porn you have to pay to see.

We also like the Most Extreme...series on National Geo. Any show about the mysteries of the world, informative shows on different cultures, is pretty interesting. I catch a couple minutes here and there. But mostly, I spend my free time....here.

And what's that show on Spike TV that is some kind of Asian challenge show with English voice overs? That's pretty entertaining.

The only show I ever watch (and do so almost religiously) is Nip/Tuck; occasionally I watch a few shows on HGTV. Any other time, my TV is on ESPN or Noggin for the kiddies.

I keep hearing Lost is the bomb, but have yet to watch. I figure I'll rent the first season and try to catch up some weekend after the holidays...

Currently watch:

-House
-UFC on Monday nights. (Screw the NFL. Real men do it in Octagons!) (Watching it as I type this!)
-M*A*S*H (I still like it.)
-Mythbusters
-South Park
-Drawn Together/Family Guy/Futurama on occassion.

That's about it aside from the occasional Discovery/History/NGC special or movie.

Vin Diesel doesn't need an octagon.

Sure he does. I'd take Matt Helm over Vin any day.

I like the comedy cartoons listed such as South Park and Family Guy and the Simpsons, but I don't watch them regularly. South Park can be plain stupid but is often hilarious, Family Guy is probably the most intelligent, and the Simpsons is the first social/political satire cartoon TV series. King of the Hill isn't quite as good in my opinion, but still good. I don't watch much TV, though. The only shows I watch regularly are the S.A. Spurs' games ('99, '03 & '05 Champions), and the WWE (even though that hasn't been cool since the '90s).

I've never gotten into UFC/MMA, I find it less entertaining than wrestling, although the ones who actually use martial arts are impressive. When I'm just randomly watching TV, I usually end up on Comedy Central. That one guy who used to be on the Daily Show, Steven Colbert, who always keeps a straight face while asking really dumb interview questions, has his own show now. And once in a while there will be a hilarious stand-up comic on Premium Blend. Rich Williams is one I remember recently, he had a lot of offensive and racist jokes.

I can't really stand TV news, the only one I can tolerate is FOX. I hate how they will speculate endlessly about something before there is confirmation of anything. It's not "news" if it's not true, so just address a different topic instead of saying 2-3 times a minute, "There is no confirmation yet, but it may be the case that blah blah blah may have happened, we will keep you informed as we learn information..."

I haven't seen Lost yet, but my grandpa has been telling me to watch it for the longest time. When is that anyway, Wednesdays? Now that school's over I'm going to try to remember, someone remind me. I've seen 24 only once I think, good show, but I forgot when it's on.

As for football, which is basically The Sport here in Texas, I have one word...no. I'll watch the Super Bowl though, but mostly for the commercials ("How little can this commercial pertain to beer?" seems to be the competition).

-King of the Hill


100% awesome. I'd watch it if I had the DVDs.


I gotta say, Family Guy and King of the Hill are probably the best to me, though South Park has the BEST overall messages with regards to society and politics.

I like South Park's humor a bit better than Family Guy, but you're definitely right about political and social messages.


What's Lost about?

"After Oceanic Air flight 815 tore apart in mid-air and crashed on a Pacific island, its survivors were forced to find inner strength they never knew they had in order to survive."

Weird stuff keeps happening on the island. J.J. Abrams (creator of Alias) created Lost, so the show has a lot of mystery to it. It has excellent casting as well. Filmed entirely on location in Hawaii. Definitely my fave.


I'm addicted to Nip Tuck

WAY to much man-ass on that show. Seriously, you'd think that those guys were proctologists instead of plastic surgeons.


When is that [superiorly awesome show that I have sorely neglected] anyway, Wednesdays?

Wednesdays, 9/8c.




Pro Wrestlers are more entertaining to watch (with the bigger-than-life personalities and melodrama), but if you want to see a good, old-fashioned ass-whupping, UFC's the way to go. But Ray Mysterio, Jr., is still the best fighter IN THE WORLD (except for Chuck Norris, of course).

I don't have cable. I own a television and an X-Box that doubles as a DVD player. (I only own three X-Box games and two of them begin with HALO.)

I do, however, own / rent / borrow a handful of television series.

Series I own:

Firefly
Aeon Flux
Family Guy
Neverwhere

Series I've enjoyed renting recently:

Dead Like Me
Deadwood
Carnivale
Sopranos
Farscape
Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Angel

I'm still a reality tv watcher. I enjoy the appentice and survivor. And from time to time Real World is still interesting to me.

24 Hours, Animal Cops, King of the Hill, Discovery channel, Sopranos, House, The Apprentice and Fear Factor

Love the HBO shows that come on seasonally
Carnivale
Six feet under
Deadwood

Of course, I sit at my computer at the same time and watch these so I never really get into JUST watching t.v.

House, Carnivale, and King of the Hill, and Animal Cops are of my favorites though.

I love scrubs..but it's been forever since I've watched it..If we can't rent it and watch it on our own time, then we usually don't find the time. Guess we need Tivo.

Carnivale, Deadwood, and Sopranos are all perfecto. I've never watched Six Feet Under.

Band of Brothers was great when it came on.

The Shield was awesome back when I used to watch it.

And the Wire? NOTHING topped it when I used to watch it.

I don't watch as much TV anymore. In used to watch Discovery Channel, A&E and PBS a lot but PBS got taken over by new age-psychic-Ramtha cultists(Sagan would be SOoo sad...) and all they show now is Andrew Weil & Wayne Dwyer type malarky. Disovery channel/Animal planet etc. seem to be Hell bent on cashing in on the current psychic craze and just insulting my intelligence with Pet Psychic and such.

I watch CSI(even the spin offs which are not as good) because the writers seem to be skeptics/critical thinkers. Episodes often deal with the clash between theology and science in an acceptable if not very well done manner. Mythbusters occasionally. All versions of Law & order are great TV.
I DO watch a lot of NFL football(the road to the Super Bowl goes through SEATTLE!! Go Hawks!) but all other sports bore the hell out of me nowadays(unless you count 9-ball and poker as "sports").

I used to love watching the news but lately I do not like the direction it is heading. Ever since FOX captured the ratings crown, everyone else is jumping on the 'opinionated journalism' bandwagon and they ALL are expressing the SAME opinions. I can decide for myself how I feel about a story. I do not need people with flag lapelles telling me how to think or feel or what my moral evaluation should be. Just report the facts and leave your politics out of it(that goes for ALL news btw...not just FOX).

I want to watch Penn & teller's Bulls#!t but either it got cancelled or I just have bad luck trying to find it on TV.
