So I'm just curious about the kinds of shows people like. It doesn't really have to be current shows (I don't have television... everything I watch is Netflix or Hulu), either.

So, the shows I've been watching recently:
Just finished Babylon 5 and what's available of Mythbusters on DVD, one of my all-time favorites.

I'm now watching Battlestar Galactica the original series (on Hulu) and the more recent ones (Netflix). Which should keep me occupied for some time.

The only show I keep up with regularly (a friend tapes it) is Dexter, which I can't get enough of and is a seriously awesome show.

The only thing I watch is House, MD. I don't have a TV here in Ghent, so I barely watch anything else.

I'd like to watch Dexter and Pushing Daisies, though. (I've seen the first few episodes of both)

The only show I currently watch with any regularity is The Office. I'm a little embarrassed to admit this, but I will also be watching Lost when the new season starts up again.

Oh, and I've been recording Top Chef.

Sports mainly, but I need to see the conclusion to Battlestar Galactica. I'm also breathlessly anticipating the new series of Flight Of The Conchords.

I get the feeling I'd love Madmen, too, but I've never caught any of it. I might just get the dvds.

Oh, and I was just watching this bbc drama about Stan Laurel, and the guy playing Laurel was the guy who played Bishop Brennan in Father Ted.

No-one kicked him up the arse, though. Sad

I stopped watching heroes when it turned into a clownboat-wreck and I haven't bothered watching anything on television since.

When we get InDemand back, though, I'm sure I'll spend some nights queuing up things I want to watch in binge fashion. Television on prescribed schedules is so passť, and if I like something, there's a 90% chance I'm watching it off of InDemand or released DVD seasons, going through seven or more eps in a single day.

Pretty much exactly how I watch. I regularly go through 6 Netflix dvds of shows a week.... that is _so_ not something to be proud of >_<

i really loved babylon 5 - i tried to tape the whole thing, they are all probably rotting away now....i should save my pennies and see about getting it on dvd.

i've gotten into a lot of the hbo series - sopranos got me to actually subscribe, and things like the wire, deadwood and carnivale have kept me watching. doesn't seem to be too much else on, though. i like eureka, so hopefully that will have another season. i've been watching sanctuary as part of my friday-night sci-fi fix, but i haven't made up my mind about it.

what else? some odd things on the history channel - cities of the underworld, ancient discoveries(although that seems to be the same few shows all the time lately)...but it seems like everything is being overtaken by "reality" shows.

Oh but Sam everyone lost their powers now because of an eclipse even though most of the people had their powers before the eclipse so it makes no sense, and now they've taken away basically the one thing that was still interesting in the series, and it looks like there's a good chance that they won't have any powers for basically the rest of the season and Sam oh Sam why wouldn't you want to watch that?

Beyond Heroes, I've been watching House, The Office, and Boston Legal, along with the usual L&O and CSI randomly because they're both on at all times forever, which is pretty awesome.

I moved about six weeks ago and no longer have a television. Back when I did watch TV it was mostly Good Eats, the History Channel, and Battlestar Galactica.

I haven't watched TV with any kind of frequency since about February. Days go by without me seeing what's on. But today I was tuning in to PBS in HDTV, and they had a special on the Osh Kosh air show. Makes me realize how much I miss the Discovery Wings channel. Stupid military takeover!
Also I realize I need a better antenna to keep th signal longer.
