It's been a while since we've listed our favorite shows. Also, list what you'd like to check out that's currently on the air.

Favorite Shows
1. Mad Men- so glad it's finally back
2. Dexter- amazing cliffhanger last season
3. Homeland- Best new show on television
4. Revenge- my favorite guilty pleasure
5. The Walking Dead- This show totally climbed my list after an amazing season 2
6. American Horror Story- excited for season 2
7. Modern Family- I adore this show..
8. True Blood- looking forward to Chris Meloni next season
9. Game of Thrones- another show I'm excited for to start again
10. Shameless- just discovered this show a few months ago
11. Grey's Anatomy- still pretty good after all these years
12. Glee- not as into the show as I used to be, but still pretty good
13. Happy Endings- New to my list
14. Parks and Recreations- still a favorite
15. The Office- This show really should of ending when Steve Carrel left.
16. GCB- Only seen 2 episodes, but interested in seeing where they take it

Shows I'm most looking forward to watching:
-Downtown Abbey. I know I'll love this show, just haven't had time. Need to Netflix it.
-Once Upon A Time- I've seen the first 6 episodes and enjoy it. Just don't have time to watch it regularly
Breaking Bad- one day I'll try to watch this show.
-Smash- I have this on my DVR, just haven't had time to catch up.

I'm kind of off tv shows that have plots right now, I think.

1. Vampire Diaries
2. Happy Endings- the best frickin' comedy in the history of time...that's my opinion right now, anyway.
3. Modern Family
4. Archer
5. RuPaul's Drag Race/Untucked
6. Face Off
7. Game of Thrones- marathon'd the last season in 2 days, it's awesome.
8. The Walking Dead- hanging on, two great episodes and a badass-to-OK finale can't overwhelm the season for me.
9. The Killing
10. The River
11. Hoarders
12. Tabatha Takes Over
13. Various crap on Bravo or HGTV- great background noise, all kind of the same thing.
14. American Horror Story
15. Secret Circle (not my choice)
16. Grimm (also not my choice)
17. ANTM, 'til the bitter end.

I wanted to check out:

Once Upon a Time

This is the can't miss list for me. Numbering means nothing - I can't order them, they are all so close...

1. Homeland
2. American Horror Story
3. Game of Thrones
4. The Borgias
5. Community
6. Falling Skies
7. Happy Endings
8. Enlightened
9. The Killing
10. Shameless
11. Boss
12. House of Lies
13. Workaholics
14. Breaking In
15. Smash

The OK

1. 30 Rock
2. Nurse Jackie
3. The Big C
4. Episodes
5. Revenge - Started great, not sure now.
6. The Office - I half agree it should have ended when Steve Carrel left. The last few episodes of the last season were the funniest in years. It was creepy James Spader and the focus on Andy that killed the show. The Office is an ensemble show, with a strong developed ensemble and that was forgotten. Time to kill it, but 8 seasons down I'll watch to the end lol.
7. Damages - One season left and then it's done. Last season was awful, Patty seemed impotent and all the characters felt one dimensional. Such a shame it came to this. Holding out this new season will be better.
8. GCB - Giving it a shot, not 100% sold but its ok


1. Modern Family - same script every week
2. Californication - see above
3. Dexter - uggh, see the Dexter thread lol

Looking Forward

2. Girls
3. Downton Abbey
4. Suburgatory - I saw 6 episodes, still want to come back to it.

Gonna take a look at, but not overly excited:

1. Bent
2. Apartment 23
3. Touch

Its amazing how much more TV one can watch when you stop watching soaps religiously.

The first two are the best choices, but I'd shelve Walking Dead for The Killing.

Make EJ/Abby happen, DAYS!

Has anyone else watched BBC's Sherlock? It's sooooo good! When I originally read the premise - having Holmes and Watson in the 21st century - I was skeptical. Being a huge fan of Arthur Conan Doyle's stories, I felt that this chronological decision was a huge deviation, one that turned me off originally. But I'm pleasantly surprised, they've pulled it really well, not to mention this show's casting consists probably of my all-time favorite on-screen adaptation of the Holmes/Watson duo! These actors make Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law look like horrible casting choices now, and I was a fan of Guy Ritchie's films.

If you haven't watched this, you should really check it out - it's my favorite show at the moment. There's not a lot of episodes to watch either - however each episode is 2 hours (1.5 without commercials), so I suppose that kind of compensates.

Okay, so I finally checked out Game of Thrones, and I am SOOOOO addicted! I had a hard time believing the show would be as good as people went on about... but it's even better if that's even possible! I'm only at the end of season 1 right now, but so far it has not disappointed.

I really want to check out the books now, too!

I actually don't watch much TV any more, so my list is pretty puny:

1. Mad Men (such a smart show, one of few where I actually believe that series decay won't happen)
2. The Good Wife
3. Breaking Bad




4. Game Of Thrones (to totally swim against the tide here, this show really disappoints me despite it's excellent production values; but maybe that's because I read the books first).





5. Once Upon a Time (I watch it because it's on in my house basically; it's fun cheese, and I like Robert Carlyle.

When it's on I also watch Downton Abbey but not sure I'll continue after S2.

To watch:
