You know, besides Mythbusters.


Personally, I can't get enough of Pawn Stars. American Pickers on the other hand, would be much better without Chubs and The Tool cruising around the Mystery Machine tearing up your barn and making campy jokes about how awesome they think they are. I bet the skinny one beats his wife. What the hell ever happened to Deadliest Warrior?

How I met your mother is about the only thing I make a point to watch, otherwise the news or whatever catches my interest.
And Ewok season 2 is more anticipated for me than season 6 of Dexter, however 2 things worry me. The firing of the writing staff and going to freelancers for each episode and the fact they want to try and cut the budget to make more profit. The fact its only 13 episodes sucks as well

These are the shows I actively watch (that are still on, not syndicated):

Dexter, Game of Thrones, Weeds, United States of Tara, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Entourage, Boardwalk Empire, Walking Dead, Mad Men, Parks & Rec, Always Sunny, and The Office.

There are a few more that I'm a casual watcher of, but that's about the only ones I keep up with as they release new episodes, although I'm a season behind on Always Sunny, and I think a season or two on Curb. I also watch True Blood, but I have no idea why. That's about the only show I watch that I could say I'm slightly ashamed of watching, but it's like a train wreck... I can't turn away.

The shows that I frequently have to watch, that I am a captive audience for because my girlfriend has the worst taste in television:

Anything on Bravo. Anything reality-show based. Anything that's a competition. Especially any competition "reality" show on Bravo. If there are gay men or stupid cu**s involved, she's watching it. And I'm loathing it. I really despise reality television and competition-based shows.

Shows I still need to catch and I'm ashamed that I haven't watched them: The Wire, Sopranos (Got the entire series for Christmas!), Breaking Bad. I tried watching The Killing on AMC, but I got behind when OnDemand episodes expired and I just lost interest.

I watch a few of the USA original series, as well as the SciFi ones when they're on.

Deadliest Warrior is supposed to be back July, but i doubt i'll watch. The tough talk (read: flirting) between the opposing sides, implausible match-ups and outcomes get on my nerves.

I'm a huge HBO tool, so I watch a lot of their original programming. True Blood, Entourage, Boardwalk Empire, Treme, Game of Thrones, Hung, Eastbound and Down, Curb Your Enthusiasm. My DVR is constantly recording something from HBO. Outside of that, I'm a huge NFL (stupid, god-damn lockout :mad:), NBA, and MLB fan. So I'm pretty much always watching and/or recording something.

I didnt watch the whole thing just a few minutes. So it was that bad Goldbug?
i've been meaning to mention how awful the new Voltron was...soooooooooooooooo bad...i mean, if you're a child with mild retardation, you'd probably like it, but aside from that...*shudders*...i wanted to like it, i truely did, as i'm a big Voltron fan, but it was just bad....it was like from the 90's..the opening theme is all rappy, the diolooooo...

ya know what, forget it...its a kid show, aimed at YOUNG kids i guess, so of course i wouldnt like it...

Oh yeah. I forgot about Modern Family. Initially, I just watched it for Sofia Vergara (she's is so fucking fine). But now I actually love the show. I think it's hilarious.

Yep, everything you mentioned plus more. The absolute worst is the Kardashian spinoffs and shit like "Million Dollar Listing" and "Millionaire Matchmaker" and the "Housewives of ________" series... Just a bunch of despicable c*nts who shouldn't be alive wasting money. And boy, do they waste it.

The Office, Parks and Recreation, Outsourced are the main ones that I make a point to watch whenever a new episode is airing. I used to watch 24 and Lost until both series ended.

Other than those, I watch whatever is on if I don't have anything better to do.

I wondered if they'd lop his hand off or keep it whole considering they have enough special effects to deal with, with it being a zombie show and all. In a comic it's easy to deform a main character and keep it consistent... Hell, it's less to draw!

But either shooting it from trick angles or CGIing it out would be a hassle, not even counting what they have in store for the adventure. I like that they steer from the source, that way we get some surprises.

What?! Crap! I forgot about that one, since they haven't shown a new episode since February. I really liked that show. I take it that it wasn't pulling the numbers they wanted then. That sucks.

That reminds me, I watch Bones too.

The filming is terrible and the acting is awful but I still love it. My girlfriend absolutely hates it.

I'm several seasons behind, but I actually own Seasons 1-5 or 6 and need to pick back up. I've seen most of the earlier seasons, but need to marathon a few seasons to get back up to the newer one. A lot has gone on in the last few seasons, and that year/2-year hiatus didn't help me keeping up with the show.
