Must See TV

Recommended Posts

Just curious what you guys are watching that you must watch every week.

 

 

Here's my list, in no particular order:

 

1. Survivor- Have watched every season. Like it because they are always finding ways to tweak it to make it new.

 

2. American Idol- My wife roped me into this one and I hate to admit I'm hooked. A guilty pleasure

 

3. "24" Well done action/drama. Kiefer Sutherland is great in it. His daughter annoys the hell out of me though( she always gets herself in predicaments)

 

4. Forensic Files- Love the "whodunnit" murder mystery stuff and how forensics have revolutionized solving murders. I like it better than CSI.

The Apprentice, even though I'm not the biggest realilty show person.

 

The Real Worl, pretty much cause the blond on there right now may be the hottest girl ever on the show...WOW :shock:

 

But I can miss those above shows and not fret about it.

 

Can't miss for me are:

 

Simpson, just look at my sig and the little milhouse guy over there!!!!

 

Smallville. I don't know why I like this so much since 80% of the episodes is Clark saving Lana, but I'm a sucker for it!!!! and her!!!!!

 

Scrubs...just damn funny!!!

 

American Chopper. Paul Tuttle Sr. funniest damn guy on TV!!!!

 

Oh yeah and pretty much anything on the History Channel

Just Survivor for me, I have also seen every season; they do indeed do a good job tweaking it every season, which does a great deal to keep it fresh. This season is one of the best in years, and only Africa was really mediocre in my mind.

 

I watch a lot of tv on DVD though, mostly BBC programs. I'm a big fan of MI-5, The Office, Doctor Who, Futurama, and Mystery Science Theater 3000.

 

If I had cable I'd happily indulge myself in CSI and every crime show on A&E. I have great love for American Justice, Cold Case Files, and City Confidential.

If not for tivo I would never catch anything but the few things I watch are:

 

Simpsons

Myth Busters

Aqua Teen Hunger Force

and the occasional South Park

 

 

One thing to keep an eye out for on Comedy Central is when they replay episodes of the very short lived series Gerhad Reinke's Wanderlust Very very funny stuff.

Monday evening I'm tuned into Discovery Channel for the must see threesome of Monster House, Monster Garage and American Chopper. Dunno why but I find it fascinating watching these guys build cool things. The great thing about those shows is if I miss them when they start @ 8:00PST they rerun them from 11pm to 2:00am. Other than that I dont really watch anything religiously. My most watched channels are History, Discovery, ESPN, Speed, and Animal Planet. I've never been a big fan of prime time tv on the big three (ABC, CBS, NBC). I hate all the damn reality shows, dont care for the police dramas (been there done that) and most of the comedies dont appeal to me (the exception being Scrubs...great show). I miss the glory days of the Simpsons. I used to watch that religiously but I dont watch it anymore. The writing just isn't nearly as good as it used to be. I find the humor has lost some of its innocences and charming appeal. Seems to be alot more in your face forced humor and physical comedy than witty writing these days. Anyway I cant wait for all the seasons to be released on dvd.

Let's see, I'm a TV junkie:

 

Alias, 24, CSI, CSI: Miami, NCIS, Crossing Jordan (can you tell I like procedural shows?), That 70's Show, The Sopranos, X-Play, Mythbusters, MXC, Star Trek: Enterprise, Survivor, Tru Calling, NHL Centre Ice (Let's go Pens!)

 

Well, I record all that stuff. Most of it gets watched, but occasionally something gets missed (Not Alias or 24, though)...

 

Edited to add a couple of things I forgot earlier...

CSI and now the Sopranos are the only shows I really make an effort to catch "live". I like to catch an episode or two of the Simpsons in syndication here and there, and there are several shows I like on Comedy Central: The Daily Show, Chapelle's Show, Insomniac, and even South Park once in a while. Other than that, it's football or basketball, depending on the season. The next three weeks will be all college hoops all the time, hooray!

 

Oh, and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" when I can find it, as well. :)

 

Good call on Alton Brown, Jay. I really like his show, and I even have his cookbook, although I've yet to make anything from either.

1. The Shield (FX Channel) - A great gritty police drama. HBO quality show, not on HBO.

 

2. Tru-Calling - Hot chick with super-natural powers, :tu:

 

3. American Idol & Nashville Star (see Bruce's explanation above) -Both of these shows have stronger talent bases than past years shows.

 

4. The Real World (also add Real World Road Rules Challenge to this)

-----from above - Thillho,

the blond on there right now may be the hottest girl ever on the show

-----I first thought she was cute, but her personality has changed my opinion. The Asian girl, now she is pretty fine! She seems like a kind and innocent person yet still very strong, ... a rare combination for a Real World cast member indeed.

 

5. Trading Spaces - My girlfriend is fine with my crush on Paige Davis because she likes the show, and because I let her crush on Tom Brady. :green:

 

6. Newlyweds, Nick and Jessica, (see # 3. for explanation) -They do make me laugh too, but if my GF didn't watch neither would I. (Sacrifices, sacrifices!)

 

7. Pimp My Ride -has caught my attention. Although the presentation is very bland it's fun to see what they do to the cars. A MADE for Tivo type show! I might as well throw Extreme Makeover and Extreme Makeover Home Edition in here as well, ... as shows I Tivo and just watch the beginning and end of.

 

8. Sportscenter. 8)

 

9. Car and Driver Television (syndicated)

 

10. Oh, and E.R. too

Joel- I also like this show, not as much this year, but do you really think someone can actually be that dumb? I guess you cant have it all because she is a remarkably attractive young lady.

 

Also I found I liked the "Til Death do us part" with Dave Navarro and Carmen Electra. I found him to be quite witty and smart and Carmen to be quite down to earth and not a bimbo. I was pleasantly surprised.

I know what your saying,... but think of this,... I think she's very intelligent. You know she plays dumb more often than she is actually dumb, but more importantly, she has been able to revitalize her career through this simple little show. I'm convinced she's not nearly as dumb as she comes across,... although she's sure to pull a few boneheads from time to time (don't we all). Anyone who can sings as well as she does has to have a good amount of intelligence. Of couse, she could always be an idiot-savant! ;)

Not much for me either.

 

Angel, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Sopranos (and Carnivale when it was on). Plan to add the new HBO series Deadwood to that too.

 

Problem is with TV on DVD becoming so prevelant I don't really care to watch television in a normal capacity unless the show really warrants my attention. (ie waiting to see how the storylines end etc..) Most of the times I'm more than happy waiting for the DVD release where I can take in the show at my own pace.

 

Kind of why I refused to watch the last 2 Seasons of Buffy on TV. I started watching the show in DVD and I swore to myself I would be patient and wait on the DVD releases so I wouldn't be all over the place storyline wise.
