best show on televsion right now
« on: Mon Nov 17, 2008 - 09:31:07 »
  What do you think it is.

  I ask this because I have a huge crush on a woman- and both of us have a favorite show on the exact same night- at the exact same time. it's not really an issue because of tivo- but for both of us each show is appointment television.

So what show is a must see for you?

By the way mine is the office and hers is Grays

Mine is "House", and "The Soup".  But I'm outnumbered one girl to four boys, so what's on TV is usually involves lots of hand to hand combat and robots.  And Spongebob is now king of the weekend mornings.

love,

Sopranette

I have a lot of favorites--especially Sci-Fi. I also love Law and Order, CSI, NCIS, and others I can't think of at this time.

Hence my avatar.

My favorite show is The Simpsons. Outwardly low class but it has so many layers of meaning and so many cultural references that it is like playing Trivial Pursuits. There are so many reruns of it on at different times that if my wife and I eat out after Sunday PM services and we get home too late to watch it I take it like a man and don't whine.

My must sees are: Unit; NCIS; Fringe; Pushing Daisies; Office/30 Rock; Life on Mars; Life; and Earl (when my wife allows me to watch it).

Usually the top of the list would be Boston Legal, but being in its last season, it is using "the shark" as a jump-rope.  If there was any question of the political leanings of its producers, or any attempt at balance, that is all in the past. 

On the night before the elections, they even had the resident "demented" hardcore Republican, Denny Crane, vote for Obama, "for the good of the country."

And last night, for the first time in recent memory, Alan Shore lost a case because he couldn't win his client's job back, even though her employer admitted he fired her because she was "stupid." 

The "incontrovertible" proof of his claim? 

She voted for McCain because she thought Sarah Palin "was spunky"!

[Oh yeah, in case they missed anyone, they also said that anyone who switched allegance from Hillary Clinton to McCain/Palin was not only stupid, but "sexist."]

I will miss the characters, but not the politics.

The best show is probably The Office. Funny and very creative.

I like The Office, Smallville, Little People, Big World, House, and Big Bang Theory.

Kind of strange, since I wasn't a fanatic about the movies and didn't make it all the way through the third, but The Terminator series has me hooked right now.  That and Smallville are the only things I'm watching regularly at the moment (at least partly because I go to bed early these days because of my job).

The CSI series.  Sports, too.  The news. 

For sheer silliness it is the kiddies' show The Backyardigans.

Yes, it's SciFi and Crime Drama for me too. Drives the wife up the wall.  I despise re-runs, so when no new episodes are on, I like to watch the Discovery Channel; Cities of the Underground, Modern Marvels, etc.

Heroes & Bing Bang Theory (I can't argue if they are the best, there just the only 2 I watch)  ::eatingpopcorn:

I occasionally watch a Tivo-ed Bizarre Foods, Dirty Jobs, or How They Make It.

I watch all the crime drama and all the SciFi starting at 7pm. I record shows with conflicting times, then watch them starting at 10pm. These days, I am a serious evening couch potato. :)

Lost is back on, and they're answering more questions than they're asking.

24 is definitely the best show.

I also like Fringe, The Unit, and NCIS. NCIS is the only one of 40 or so mortician shows on TV that I like.

24 hasn't given me a good reason to keep watching this season.  I keep watching anyway, but soon that may change unless the show picks things up a bit.

I agree .... I love Monk.  His character is so funny.  And I don't worry about the content of the program either.

God Bless.

What's the deal with the goofball David Caruso look-alike (and similar bad acting) on the new show Burn Notice. I can't stnd to look at the guy.

24 did lose me.  Terminator's back on now, on Fridays, so there are three shows I'm watching (with Lost and Smallville).  That's enough.  More than I have time for.

Spurly, I think your best and worst somehow got mixed up. The Gaither Specials are undoubtedly the best, but some how you made a mistake and typed American Idol and NASCAR.  ???

With Lost gone, I'll go for Leverage, Bones, and Chuck. NCIS is still good as well, and White Collar has grown on me. Good scripts.
