    The end of Season 6 of Dexter has had me saying "Oh my God" for over a week now (took me a while to get caught up).

    A man of good taste.

    For me it would probably be Star Trek: The Next Generation, followed by The Original Series. Top Gear (UK) is also up there.

    Comedy: There's the old stuff: Monty Python, Only Fools and Horses, Red Dwarf, Steptoe and Son, most things with Ronnie Barker in them...and the new stuff would be Family Guy mostly.

    The Mad Movies. Done by a group called The L.A. Connection where they put their own words to modified old classic movies, it was so hilarious I would roll on the floor laughing and milk would come out of my nose. But you have to see them to appreciate the comedy, and the group is having difficulty getting them released to dvd. They used to be shown real late at night on a show called "Night Flight" that mostly played music videos but would sometimes show other stuff as well. I have crappy VHS recorded versions of a Sherlock Holmes hunting book pirates and a Ronald Reagan one done from the movie "Santa Fe Trail" but there must have been dozens of them made.

    Haha, not quite- I thought the Anna Gunn (Skyler) character wasn't going anywhere, but she turned out to be a pretty strong identity and plot mover in the show.

    Now, if Jesse adopts Brock, and they move in with Badger and Skinny Pete, would the resulting spinoff be called Three and a Half Men ?!:eek:

    Right now, (for me at least), it's "Person of Interest".

    It has a "fictional machine", that taps into every surveillance camera, every computer, and every email account in the world. (Hey wait a minute, are we sure this isn't an NSA documentary)?

    Anyhow, it's got Amy Acker playing a part, ("Root"), crazy & eccentric enough to be taken over any minute by Summer Glau.

    Me, Acker, is a former lingerie model, and also a former, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer". alumni. As you may know, Ms Acker, Summer Glau, Eliza Dusku, Alison Hannigan, and of course,
    Sarah Michelle Gellar, are all part of a group I've named,"Whedon's Wenches", as Josh was responsible for their "big break(s)". (Plus one other girl whose name escapes me ATM, who played "Anyanka" a former demon in "Buffy". Oh yeah, and Charisma Carpenter.

    Sarah Shahi also joined the cast the season, as a "presumed dead", CIA cast out. Sarah brings a bad attitude, lots of killing expertise, and a great a**, to "round out" the cast.

    If you need a good laugh instead, (or in addition to), check out, "Two Broke Girls", also on CBS. Some of these episodes are the funniest, raunchiest, and most tasteless network TV I've ever seen. As you might expect from me, this show gets two big.......(y) (Y)(y) (Y) ...!

    Game of Thrones is the best one ever! I think if you watched it I shouldn't explain why. I didn't like such stories before but this one changed my opinion forever.

    I have all 7 seasons of GoT, still in their boxes, and ready to watch. This so I can binge watch the entire series and not have to wait to find out what happens next

    As I understand it, they're taking this year off, (??), and it will wind up in 2019.

    If the dragon riding nude blond doesn't get the Iron Throne, I'll probably skip buying Season 8. But yes, I do see the irony in that, since I have to wait til' S8 wraps up, before I watch the other 7 anyway.

    Yes, it has to end in 2019. And you have a great power of will that you wait for so long, especially when there are so many spoilers on the web. I started to watch it when there were about 4 seasons on the net already and now yes, have to wait.

    This is the only "spoiler" I've actually watched: (It's homemade).

    For me, Babylon 5. I've watched and rewatched it many, many times over and it never gets old.

    It's quite old, but still worth to be watching.

    Chuck hands down. It has a wide variety of genres: Comedy (of various kinds), drama (that is often times deep and sometimes tragic), deep love story, and profound character interaction. Even the so-called secondary characters have depth. I could go on and on. Just a great fun series all around.

    Chuck and Doctor Who(newer series). Chuck has a special place in my heart but doctor who is just bloody awesome, constantly changing new actors and actresses to keep the show fresh and it just has an infinite amount of ideas for the show

    Most TV watchers here have a very small sample size to choose from. There is no good TV anymore. It's universally trash
