Invisibility Let's talk Television!

What are your favorite TV shows? What shows are you currently watching? What shows do you wish were never canceled?

I really love Fringe, Doctor Who, Firefly, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Venture Brothers and Archer. Those are my favorites.

I also really enjoy/enjoyed Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Chuck, the Daily Show, Colbert Report, Heroes, Lost, The X-Files, Workaholics, Supernatural, South Park, Futurama, Dragonball Z, Naruto Shippuden, Tosh.0, Smallville, Monk and Psych.

I also enjoy most of the comic book cartoons, Justice League Unlimited was my favorite.

I also like science and pseudoscience shows like Mythbusters, Sci-Fi Science, Destination Truth, Ancient Aliens and Fact or Faked Paranormal Files.

Currently I am following Torchwood (the new version on Starz), Falling Skies (TNT's alien invasion drama), The Deadliest Warrior (the new season), Alphas (Syfy's new superhero hourlong), Through the Wormhole (the current season) and Battlestar Galactica (being re-aired on BBC America currently).

What say you?

Whenever I get a chance to watch TV it's Archer these days.

My girlfriend likes to watch, and therefore I watch, Ghost Hunters, Destination Truth, Fact or Faked.

I saw a couple of the Ancient Aliens. Some of it I think is legit, others are a little far fetched.

Oh, there is a show that comes on... I don't know what channel, most shows I watch are from On Demand, but it's called Oddities. It's basically one of the pawn shop shows but they deal in really bizarre stuff. Each episode usually has someone having a bizarre request for an item and the people trying to find it.

I'm just starting on Battlestar.

Yes, shut up, I'm just starting it.

Also just got Game of Thrones. Keen as fuck to start watching that, everyone I know has said absolutely amazing things about it.

In terms of TV shows I like: favorites include Dexter, Doctor Who, West Wing, and Scrubs. Haven't been watching too much else lately.

Can anyone give me links to watch Game of Thrones online? Would be epic.

I've also been watching This series. Basically my interest in Assassins Creed drew me to it.

uTorrent and bittorrent is the same except uTorrent gets the updates before bittorrent and the DL file is smaller.

Also don't be surprised if I actually like Joffery, through in a love to hate manner. That is because he reminds me of................well me, and you shouldn't take fiction too seriously.

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!

Possibly because she's poorly written?

And while I can understand why a character who acts like me is meant to be hated, there is one character whose hate I can't understand. I can't understand why people hate Helen from Primeval for one, since from a misanthropic point of view, she's right, also simular villains, such as Char from well Gundam has similar motivations and have done similar things have a large fandom.

Did you see John Woo's "Red Cliffs" film? What did you think of it?

Also I heard China banned time travel on TV, so doesn't that mean no more terminator or Doctor Who there?

Not really. She is just so naive, that is just who she is. She annoys me so much because she reminds me of all the retarded girls I've met in real life.

I love The Big Bang Theory and I wish they would start with Scrubs again, it's the show that actually made me consider going to med school at first.

Of currently airing shows:

Daily Show, Colbert Report, Doctor Who, Good Eats

I half-watch Chuck, kinda.

Of past shows:

Tons of anime dubs (Dragonball, Sailor Moon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Pokémon's first season, Digimon Adventure/02, Monster Rancher, etc), Heroes (until they screwed it up. Got better the last season), Lost (until the last episode), more that aren't coming to me at the moment.

When Heroes became the Petrelli show, that's when it went downhill.

The second season started off well but by the end of it became a total crapshoot. I liked the last season more than any of the others except the first. Except for the stupid Sylar redemption plot thing.

That's the flaw of most of the American TV series, they never write the whole story script before they make the first season, just write the script season after season until they don't have any good ideas.
