    I like Lost, Justified and Castle. (for this season)

    There is a BBC sitcom "Last of the Summer Wine" that I really enjoy.

    I have the box set

    I have to catch up on Stargate Universe as I have 4 episodes sitting on the DVR.

    I myself watch a lot of TV but I watch a lot of History, Discovery, National Geographic and the Science channel but of course I also enjoy the below TV shows.

    The Simpsons, Family Guy, Cleveland Show, 24, Survivor, American Idol, Amazing Race, Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis, Stargate Universe, South Park and COPS.

    I tend to watch more shows about science, religion, space, technology and I love a good documentary. I enjoyed watching Sniper: Inside the Crosshair yesterday.

    I like Nova, Discovery, et cetera. I might consider watching Breaking Bad if I could start from the first episode. I am a fan of Bryan Cranston so I might check it out.

    It is, however, harder for me to watch fiction than non-fiction. It's the same with books.

    I find it hardest of all to watch the travesty of 'reporting' that is passed off as unbiased, or 'documentaries' ostensibly teaching some sort of non-fiction, when they are painfully obvious as propaganda. Equally offensive is a show that panders to a part of society that wants to hear their ridiculous spin (the show on aliens a couple of nights ago comes to mind: "NASA has said that the moon is hollow", etc.).

    No need to flame: we may be in different parts of society and may honestly enjoy hearing spin which matches our presuppositions. But regardless of whether it's my side or your side, let's call it 'cheerleading' rather than an unbiased presentation.

    I usually watch the History Channel, Discovery, Tru, local news, Jeopardy, and others I cant really think of. One of my favorites that I still record on the DVR and is old but still good is M*A*S*H. I have seen every episode, but just cant get enough.

    Star Trek, Justified, ummm..., Americas Worst Driver (to make me feel superior), Pawn Stars, American Pickers, Deadliest Catch, Two and a Half Men, How it Made, the list goes on. I record many of the shows so I can watch them at my leisure when I have the time to do so.

    Always watch: 24, V

    Used to always watch (until it ended): Battlestar Galactica

    Sometimes watch: Survivor, The Office

    Occasionally watch: Gun Night on the Outdoor Channel (Wednesday nights), 30 Rock, Community, The Apprentice, Myth Busters

    When 24 goes away for good, after this season, I don't know what I'll do.

    The last TV miniseries I watched was "Spartacus", mainly because my Wife was really enthusiastic about it; I will not go into any details, but many of my Wifes' friends were quite positive in their reviews of the show, especially in their treatment of the male anatomical structure.......
