Let's Talk TV

I was wondering what all you guys like to watch on TV?

Do you have favourite shows that you must watch religiously, what are your favourite shows?

Lets talk TV

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

I'll watch The Big Bang Theory whenever I happen to run across it while surfing. I enjoy even the ones I've seen a time or two before. Bazinga!

Oh, and Downton Abbey. The only thing I watch for certain is the noon news, while I have lunch. Well, now that I think about it, I watch Washington Week with Gwen Ifill if I don't forget on Friday nights.

I know these aren't particularly interesting answers for an Aussie's question, Kylie, and I hope the others' answers are better.

No matter how simple it seems, it's complicated.

Doc Martin. DA, Nova, Nature, mostly PBS shows. If nothing interesting is on, I put the game channel on. Don't listen or watch it, just have it on for background noise. Sometimes it gets to be too much and I will put on a movie. I watched the remake of Stagecoach today. It was okay.

When I'm not watching movies (or that addictive English mini-series ) my TV is usually on one of the sports channels (except baseball season) or one of the science type channels... History channel, Military channel, that kind of stuff. Background TV is always sports, since I've probably already heard what they are saying half a dozen times already.

NCIS (the original) is about the only show I regularly catch. I also The O'Reilly Factor and Downton Abbey. There are lots of shows that I enjoy when they come on if I'm tuned in but don't always go looking for them.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Another Big Bang fan, and I'm perfectly happy with repeats. NCIS, Criminal Minds, CSI, SVU, Bones. Food Network and Cooking Channel on weekends. Survivor and Amazing Race when they're in season.

There are several weekly TV shows that I enjoy. Downton Abbey tops the list but there are more.

Blue Bloods. I've had a crush on Tom Selleck since we were both young.

CSI, CSI New York, Criminal Minds, The Good Wife, Law and Order SVU, Antiques Road Show, History Detectives, Doctor Pol, Pawn Stars, American Pickers

We record everything we like so we can watch it when we choose.

Lately I've been watching the series Brothers and Sisters on Netflix which was canceled after five seasons. I love it and missed it when it ran on ABC.
Another series I've watched on Netflix is Damages with Glen Close.......WOW!

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.
