    Lost, House, PrisonBreak, CSI, but I haven't watched the latter in a while. That's the only TV I watch per week. And PB is over for the season, but what a finale

    I love house. Anyone catch the most recent episode? Oh man, what an episode!!

    24. This season the technical dialogue and explanations are still bad, but the show itself is quite good if you can overlook it.

    Sorry to ask the obvious, but you like MacGyver? I watched the pilot recently, as I think I may have mentioned a while ago, and it's terrible 24 is good too, but I have .. 4 seasons to catch up on! I've heard good things about Heroes too, but I've been too busy to extend my allowable hours of TV per week.

    Lost is the only series I've watched lately. Since I don't have Sky One, I have to wait until the DVD box set of series 3 is out

    House M.D. like everyone else, and Law & Order. I also watch Aqua Teen Hunger Force on occasion. I don't have time to watch anime anymore; most of it is on pretty late and it's not that good.

    I see you have the history channel.

    We have a LOT of Modern Marvels on DVD, they are real neat and even fascinating at times, but they aren't true entertainment. (Might wanna be carfull how you throw around "Dogfights" right now. )

    I really like 24 too, but SG Atlantis is still better.

    The pilot is probably not a good indication of how the show really is, and I dislike many of the aspects of the show, such as its politically liberal spin.

    What I did like about the series was the ingenuity, as well as the battles with Murdoc.

    For 24, I think my favorite season ending would have to be season 2. It has that good "final showdown" feel, with action, good surprises, and lots of action. A very good ending, and yes, it has lots of action.

    I strongly disliked season 3 of 24, and try to sometimes pretend it never occurred. Seasons 4 and 2 are probably the best ones.

    Gene Simmons Family Jewels and 24 [edit]and The Unit[/edit] are about the only TiVo I watch intentionally. Otherwise I see a lot of Dora the Explorer; Blues Clues; Go, Diego, Go!; and Scooby-Doo.

    The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and Corner Gas are the only shows I can think of that I go out of my way to watch. I watch House if it's on. Maybe South Park on occasion. If I see something interesting on the civilization or history channels, or one of the news stations, I'll watch that.

    EDIT: I watched Stella too, before it got canceled.
