    I have to admit, growing up and even know I rarely watched TV since I have no spare time, so nowadays if I find anything worth watching I am more prone to downloading/buying the DVD... but I was keen to get an idea of what kind of shows people on here are watching, or might have favoured in the past. Hell I enjoy a good conversation about my interests:

    Current favourites
    True Blood (Anna Paquin definitely fits into my 20%)
    The Office (US - Took a while to grow on me, but the biggest compliment I can bestow upon it, is that I actually enjoy it a little more than the UK one)
    Battlestar Galactica (I didn't start watching until about 3 months ago, and I almost put my life on hold to watch the entire series).
    Lost (Almost lost me with the start of Season 3, but I stuck it out, glad I did too!)

    Old Favourites
    Buffy the Vampire Slayer
    The Office (UK)
    Simpsons in it's prime
    Fawlty Towers

    As a single man, housebound at the moment and a temporarily impaired social life:

    True Blood (The Sookie Stackhouse novels are a hoot)
    Battle Star (soon to watch Caprica)
    Paranormal Activity
    Desperate Housewives
    Heroes
    Lost
    Housewives of: (All of them, each has their own brand of insanity to be enjoyed)
    Dexter
    Rome
    The Tutors (A friend of mine is a cast member)
    Dress My Nest
    Bravo: Tabitha's Salon Take over (OMG she is such a bitch, love her)
    Launch my line
    Millionaire Matchmaker (some people have more money than common sense)

    I am primarily tuned into the Discovery and Science channels in between the rest of these shows. My two absolute faves.

    I'm a True Blood fanatic! Heroes, Dexter, Lost, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Two and a Half Men, Desperate Housewives, Sex in the City, Friends (box set), Six Feet Under, Alias, Extra's, much rather prefer the UK version of The Office and Queer As Folk.

    Used to love watching Charmed - Piper was my favourite and they had to deal with some sexy demons sometimes...

    I fucking love Japanese Iron Chef! Here is a website with all Japanese episodes that aired on the Food Network (plus a number that didn't in their original Japanese, though those are of no use to me). You have to make an account for it, but I don't think email verification is required or anything, so you can just enter a fake email.

    OMG, Glee? Anybody?? and South Park (when they're on their game, which admittedly is spotty).

    not to mention the hot little football studs on Friday Night Lights, which I think is still on cable, but I don't have that package, drat!

    Desperate Housewives except when it's opposite Drop Dead Diva!
    I've been watching quite a bit of HGTV
    Dirty Jobs (mostly because I have a man crush on Mike Rowe)
    I mostly watch TCM!

    Yeah, I just thought it went without saying - think we're all down with those wacky suburbanites. Anybody who's not takes themselves way too seriously. And Mike Rowe, wuf! I want to see the home videos of him w/Mike the Plumber (or dead Carl). Pleeese? :frown1:

    or a 3way, oh my god, my libido just went into overdrive, i seriously need to get laid.

    Okay, I didn't know we were digging into the archives, that would take forever.
    However, Dynasty, yes the one that started it all.
    And Amy Sedaris rules! I would drink from her boots. Perhaps a lovely Vouvray. :cool:
