For me, Doctor Who (the best show on the planet) is wrapping it up for this year and we'll have to wait for more.

Smallville is gone and so I need a replacement. I'm picking up X-Factor, because I like a good singing competion. And tonight is the premeire of Terra-Nova, which I hope turns out to be a decent show.

So, what's on your TV lately?

Warehouse 13 has been fun to watch. I have also liked Eureka, but this year - a little too much "making out" and sexual innuendo. :(

I watched the first two episode of season 1 but i thought it's about magic, so i stop watching. :(

I'm watching Harry's Law and Big Bang theory. :)

Very little that is clean...even X Factor, just when you think it was safe, a man auditioning exposed himself, even one of the Judges had to leave the stage it was so disgusting! (without any provocation) and then all the demonized people trying out...:eek:

so far The Amazing Race is not too bad.:wave:

No, it has to do with hunting down "artifacts". They are pretty intelligent in how these works - like binoculars used by someone on the Enola Gay (the plane that dropped one of the atomic bombs). When someone looked through them it caused the person they were looking at to by nuked. They had to get the binoculars to stop some one from using them and "nuking" people he didn't like. X(

I don't remember how it goes, but maybe I should reconsider watching it. :S

I said, "Bye, bye", to cable tv.

#1. Because of the excessive cost (be content with sustenance and covering, etc.)

#2. Constant stream of filth (leave the room and instantly there's something with demonic content on the screen -- had this happen to me more than once)

Now I get the news from my internet connection (okay, I admit it: I'm addicted to this thingy here). For entertainment, I can watch HULU on the web or check out movies and DVD's from the public library which also enables me to more carefully screen the content of what I watch.

Breaking the addiction to cable tv was hard at first, but it's do-able.

Besides, chances are we won't have CNN or HBO in the new system, so need to start letting go now of some of these electronic conveniences/annoyances. Also, I do find I am sleeping better at night with not having watched all the bad news on TV..

My wife and I watch very little TV. We like "University Challenge" - a quiz between teams from British universities - and we count how many answers we know (!) and certain cookery programmes interest us. Little else.

Now that the baseball season is winding up, I've been getting some dvds lined up for long winter evenings - The Charles Dickens collection 2 came through my door yesterday, and I got the Intelligent design collection. We also have our Kindles (I have just finished Dickens' Barnaby Rudge, Defoe's Robinson Crusoe and am now in The Brothers Karamazov by Dostoievsky. I love 19th century novels.

Much of the modern drama output on TV I find uninteresting.

We have been enjoying Reel History of Britain:http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00yw2wc http://beta.bfi.org.uk/reelhistory/ Melvyn Bragg has been criss-crossing the country in one of the unlikeliest vehicles ever to congest Britain’s roads. It is a mobile cinema, commissioned by 1960's Prime Minister Harold Wilson.“Wilson commissioned six of these cinemas in the 1960s,” Bragg explains. “They were converted Bedford vans – with up to 30 seats inside and an aisle down the middle – and they were designed to go round the country to show educational films to young working people to demonstrate how the factories they were working in could be improved.” Fifty years on, Bragg has commandeered one of Wilson’s restored cinemas-on-wheels for an educational crusade of his own. He has used it to make Reel History of Britain, an ambitious new 20-part documentary series which starts on Monday on BBC Two. The series – like the mobile cinema – is fuelled by all manner of archive footage, dusted down from the endless subterranean shelves of the British Film Institute and other national and regional film archives.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/tvandradio/8738022/Melvyn-Bragg-on-his-Reel-History-of-Britain-interview.html

You must be talking about those 2 girls and the one started screaming something. :scared:

The man who exposed himself should have gotten arrested. You could see parents getting up and rushing their kids away. It was sad.

I almost don't see the point in paying for television anymore at all. You can watch almost anything on the net. I have the most basic Dish subscription ($9.99) just to get local channels in clearly. I also have Netflix streaming (and plan to ditch the DVD service). And even then, I am on the laptop or phone more than the Television.

Besides, chances are we won't have CNN or HBO in the new system, so need to start letting go now of some of these electronic conveniences/annoyances. Also, I do find I am sleeping better at night with not having watched all the bad news on TV..

We had a sister who got cable, got addicted to the news, and found herself watching the news all the time and having trouble sleeping. She finally cut the cable and went back to reading books and renting an occasional movie.

Doctor Who. I grew up on that from the Third Doctor onwards. Last episode of the series this Saturday. I took my daughter to the Doctor Who Experience, in London in June. It was great. We both loved it.

That must have been nice! I can only watch the recordings of the concerts that usually are bundled with the DVD box sets that come out.

I started with the same Doctor. When I was in 3rd grade (circa 1983) I stumbled across Doctor Who on PBS over here in the states, and was instantly addicted ;)
