Favorite TV Shows

  1. I saw a topic on movies and thought that really what we watch on TV says a lot.

    I don't watch a lot of TV but there is a couple of shows I really like.

    FarScape - I am addicted

    Xena - swords, violence, women in leather (need I say more)

    HBO's Bothers in Arms - hard to watch sometimes but a great show

    History/Discovery/National Geo. Channel


    College Football - Oklahoma football Fan

    Travel Channel - I still have wander lust bad

    and yes Mtv2

    The shows I hate are like 911 and such.

    So what do you like and why?

    Don't have cable. My absolute faves are Nova and Scientific American Frontiers. What can I say? I'm a nerd, okay?

    For lighter stuff I like the Simpsons. And Jeopardy (nerdy again.)

    I do kind of like Xena and Hercules too. Guys in skimpy amounts of leather. Uh-huh. Plots are stupid, but they keep your interest occupied on other levels, right?
    I don't watch a great deal of TV, but the only thing I NEVER miss is ER.

    If we're puttering around the house, Animal Planet or The Learning Channel are usually on.

    But my favorite shows seem to be the ones I catch in endless reruns. TNT is a rerun favorite of mine lately. ER and NYPD Blue during the day, and Law & Order at night. And I can always count on Lifetime to have my beloved Golden Girls!

    I like Friends, Will & Grace & Everybody Loves Raymond, like ER, Maternity Ward on Discovery Health, love Matlock reruns, and I'm addicted to COPS. Don't really get into "reality" shows, ie survivor-the whole point of TV is to have a break from reality!! I also have to admit I watch all the 90210 reruns I can catch on FX Also love to watch any Lifetime movie, no matter what the plot, I think it must be a girl thing!

    i dont have cable ..yet...we are moving so i can actually get a decent cable company. so here i only get wb channels and some fox. i dont watch much tv so i dont really care much.

    my fav shows from what i get are:

    seventh heaven (sappy i know but im kinda hooked)
    dawsons creek
    and howard stern tv show (yes i KNOW hes a pig but sometimes he is funny)

    of course i can do without any or all except the simpsons.

    my fav show of all time is St. Elsewhere. i have nearly all the episodes on tape.

    fav cable shows are all the old reruns on nick at night or tv land. (well most of them) ...i find some kind of comfort in those shows. they remind me of simpler times. i find myself longing to live in mayberry...lol

    of course discovery and the learning channel

    I don't really watch much TV....I am more a book reader. If I do watch TV I like Law and Order and Will and Grace - saw a few of their episodes and thought it was pretty funny.

    The shows I totally love are: Fraiser, The Simpsons, ER, and for the moment I really like the show Scrubs(its so stupid I can't help but laugh!). Oh, and my newest little addiction is Felicity even though I won't tell anyone who knows me.
    If none of these shows are on, the tv is almost always on the Discovery Channels, TLC, the History Channel, or the Cartoon Network. Surgery always makes for good background noise when I'm doing homework.
    Other then the shows I listed above, I usually don't end up watching much though - I just leave it when I'm busy with something else or about to go to sleep.

    My absolute favorite TV show is ER, followed by FRIENDS. Last night, I watched Friends and set my VCR to tape ER but I screwed it up and only got the first few minutes of ER on tape! RATS!! But I am sure that it will be rerun at some point during the season.

    I think I might cry the day they stop making new episodes of The Simpsons. Has anyone seen the animated show The Family Guy on Fox? It's an absolute riot. Besides the fact that they poke fun @ my home state of RI, it's just a hilarious little treat whenever it comes on. I really like CSI and am addicted to Survivor. I like Trauma: Life In The ER on TLC. They profiled the hospital where I work a couple of weeks ago.
