Hey all,

Congrats to those who just submitted their ROLs! I can't believe I will be doing all that next year!

Thought we could see what all the pathologists of the world watch on TV. Here's my list: :laugh:

1) Lost
2) Alias (big JJ Abrams fan)
3) Amazing Race
4) Desperate Housewives
5) Boston Legal
6) West Wing
7) ER

Looks like I need to get out more between all the time I spend watching TV and cruising SDN forums. :D

I don't know what are my favorites...but I am following these shows:

1) 24
2) Lost (catching up though...)
3) Committed (stopped watching when it ceased being funny)
4) Battlestar galactica (kinda disappointing but there are only 6 more episodes left)

I started to watch some of the early Lost episodes last night...damn I been missing out. Pretty good show. Great performance especially from that scraggly idiot who played a hobbit in that one movie by that one dude.

"Where aaare we?"

Like another member of SDN, I too love The OC. And you can't beat an evening of brainless teen-centered soaps on the WB. HBO programming is inspired-- Six Feet Under, Deadwood, Da Ali G Show, etc. And when the options are particularly dreary nothing beats the trusty stand-by's, ESPN or a good ol' sci-fi channel B-movie.

By the way, "HI ALL". I have decided to lurk no more.

Ah ha! Another lurker steps into the light! Welcome, PuGanDoo.

I do like Scrubs. It seems wildly outrageous, but it's actually so true to life...which makes it even more outrageously funny. I'm also a "Cops" fan, myself. Nothing like juicy white trash entertainment. Seriously though, I don't watch much TV. It's because I'm addicted to this silly forum. ;)

I used to be a big fan of Politically Incorrect, but I'm not such a huge fan of the format of Real Time with Bill Maher. And I think the show is filled too much of Bill Maher's propoganda rather than being a debate format like PI.

Half way caught up in the Lost season. If you haven't been watching this, I suggest you download the episodes somehow and catch up. At this point in time you are 17 episodes behind.

Well, Brit Hume is a much much better choice than Larry King or Bill OReilly. He probably only talks about Michael Jackson for half of his show.

Well what is your deadline (i.e., your defense) and are these experiments crucial for the final thesis? If not, there is a point where the experiments must halt for a bit so that the thesis can be completed and you can submit it to your committee so that they have ample time to read it. It is tough to resist the temptation to do more and more experiments though.

Brit Hume hsa the best newscast, handsdown. I don't think he ever has mentioned Michael Jackson that I've seen.

As for the bo-staff... how do you think that guy in the step 2 BS got all beaten up with a dropped lung? It's regretable that Andy has chosen to reveal part of my secret identity - now he must be eliminated, old school.

Yes, apparently my numchuck skillz are no match for your bo-hunting skillz. I mean gangs tried to get you to join because you were pretty good with the bo-staff. Nobody tried to recruit me for my numchuck skillz. Not even ninjas.

I realized for the first time how little TV I ever really watch, when on the 3rd and final evening of my stay in San Antonio I decided to go looking for the remote control.

(This being a hotel room it wasn't hard to find.)

my roommate pretty much owns the TV now. he also got TiVo which helps him watch TV for hours and hours after he gets back from his busy day at work. i just download the episodes of the shows that i find good and then i will watch several episodes at a time on the weekends.

Beary, I totally lurv your avatar - we actually saw Kevin Weisman (sp?) while we were in LA for interviews. Luckily, I played it cool and suppressed my inner squee-age. Not that he's terribly good-looking or anything, of course - Marshall is just da bomb. J.J. Abrams is a genius (did you watch Felicity, too? Not nearly as good, but then it's hard to make the life of an undergrad seem interesting).

Sigh. I love television. We're thinking of leaving ours behind when we move, though - is that crazy? It's just such a tempting distraction from doing semi-important things, such as feeding the pets, paying bills, etc.

My favorites (we don't have cable, so don't fault me for leaving out Sopranos and such):

1. Alias
2. Simpsons
3. Gilmore Girls
4. King of the Hill
5. Arrested Development (watch this, people! It's so funny, but its ratings apparently stink)
6. Scrubs
7. The O.C.
8. Bernie Mac
9. E.R.

I'm resisting Lost, because I already watch an hour on Wednesday night.

Thank you very much! I am so jealous that you got to see Marshall in real life - I definitely agree that he is da bomb!! I actually never watched Felicity.

You must watch Lost!! It is even better than Alias this season, IMHO. I definitely admire your dedication to the important things in life - pretty much the most important thing in my life anymore is watching TV. :D

I've seen every episode of Arrested Development; it is indeed hilarious. That, Desperate Housewives, Scrubs and Deadwood (second season starting soon) are my main shows right now. I've spent some time watching Alias and Lost too but they didn't have near the same quality (though Lost may be getting better from what I've heard).

Don't worry, Andy, I probably will end up watching Lost, too - I've caught the last five minutes a couple of times while waiting for Alias, and was intrigued (don't read if you missed last week's ep: is that large dude really a multi-millionaire, or was he joking?).

Beary, we can't blame newcomers for not loving Alias, IMO. Last season and this one (so far), while still good, aren't quite up to the standards of seasons one and two (bring back Will and Francie, JJ!). Still, Stormjen, I'm afraid the Desperate Housewives will need to take up martial arts and start kicking bad-guy arse before I rank them above Alias (jk, DH rocks too). What is Deadwood? Don't think I've heard of it.

P.S. In case you're curious, we saw Marshall at the Grove (shopping / entertainment complex) talking on his cell at an outdoor cafe.

The difference in cash value between a canadian nickel and a US nickel is vanishingly small, isn't it?

I definitely agree that this season has been extremely sub-par. I read somewhere that they were trying to make it easier for new viewers to start watching it but making the story lines shorter and less complicated, and it seems to me that all they did was make the show less interesting. :(

I'm a fan too, and I dunno, I kinda like how they're going back to the old-school spy thing. Like in the season premier this year, there was a classic fight-on-a-moving-train-going-over-a-bridge scene that I found satisfying.

Ugh...I been hearing a lot about other shows that I'm not watching at the present moment such as Alias. Now there's this talk about Gilmore Girls. Bah screw it. I'm only following three shows at the moment. Can't follow anymore.
