Futurama and The Simpsons
BONES
Cold Case
Law and Order: SVU
Lie to me

h20: Just Add Water and W.I.T.C.H. are my two fav non-animes. Followed by Avatar: The Last Airbender and Teen Titans.

I also like...:
Kenan and Kel (Who loves Orange soda? KEL Loves Orange Soda~!)
The Amanda Show (Bring in the Dancing Lobsters!)
Rugrats
Rocko's Modern Life
AHH! Real Monsters.
Doug
Dexter's Laboratory
Powerpuff Girls
Gullah Gullah Island (don't judge me!)
Allegra's Window (Again, no judging me xD)
Blue's Clues [Steve era] (...okay, you can judge me a little.)
Clarissa Explains It All
The Secret World of Alex Mack
ALL THAT!
...

Pretty much I like a lot of old cartoons and old shows, and some new cartoons and some new stuff. Mostly I like kids stuff I guess, but that's because... I dunno, all the 'adult' stuff never interests me. Like, I can watch CSI and stuff, but it's a vague interest to me. I prefer... well, fantasy to a... I dunno. But stuff like h2o: Just Add Water and The Secret World of Alex Mack tend to be my preference over other things.

Bones is awesome, I love her non-existential humor which makes everything funny Wink

she's like Dr. House in female and still amusing.

(I quit watching Dr. House after he got his new team. It wasn't the same anymore...)

i know i'm a bit slow here (only just realised this thread was here) but i loved Dollhouse!! it was a great show! they only showed i think 4 episodes here, then cancelled it. which really disappointed me. i was glad there was something good on tv again :S

current TV shows i enjoy:
- Futurama, Family Guy, American Dad (seen almost all of em, but when i am channel surfing and find it i usually watch it)
- Avatar: The Last Airbender (seen it all several times, always stop if i find it on when channel surfing though)
- WCG Ultimate Gamer (been recording and watching the 2nd series. i watched all the first series too)
- Around The World For Free (i have it all recorded, but only watched about 1/4 of it)
- Tornado Chasers (i follow this show religiously when it airs lol. i'm excitedly awaiting the next season... if it airs...)
- D1GP and D1 Street Legal (drifting in japan. i think they stopped airing them here though unfortunately >.<)
- Most things on Discovery channel or Nat Geo, especially anything relating to Japan.
- and Spongebob Squarepants (when i see it on, cause it's awesome)

i think that about covers it for now.

TROLOLOL.
Glee can go fu c k itself ^__^ (which doesn't mean I won't be watching season 5 and 6 -__-)
PPL got really, really better last season and I am actually looking forward to the next one X3
It's been ages since I watched Body of Proof, which is sad. It's not like I can remember why I stopped though : X I really need to get back into it.
I haven't watched any How I Met Your Mother either, but that's because it's just isn't as good as it was in earlier seasons. I still want to get around at some point *shrugs*

Currently I am only watching two series, because all the others are on hiatus (well, three with Buffel). There is Defiance which is a alien kind of thing, but pretty good so far and it has Mia Kirshner and Julie Benz and other lovely ladies, so : P The other is Orphan Black which is just so good so far. I don't want to say anything else to it except: sdfghjklökjhjkll!

What I want to watch in the future is Intelligence which doesn't look too good to me, but it has Meghan Ory, so ._.

When there are new seasons, I will go back to (PLL, Glee), Grey's Anatomy, Once Upon A Time and! Lost Girl. I also need to get back on the Chicago Fire train, but... D:

I also have to come around to finally start watching Games of Thrones but that will be so time comsuming ö.ö

I am not watching many series, nonono Akira Okuzaki

Oh, and when I feel like it I always go watch some Xena.

Oh Glee. Why must you torture yourself so, Kino, my dear. *facepalm* (as in my palm, your face)

I too need to start re-watching Chicago Fire. I just hate the situations the characters are in. Same with Once Upon a Time, but I managed to watch that till the end of the season *sigh*

Game of Thrones is EPIC! There was no episode this week :( It's the kind of show where you can't help but love all the characters. I especially love Emelia Clarke's character though. KHALEESI!



Whoops, wrong picture...



I'm also watching Nikita (which has gone to shit), Russle Howard's Good News and Mork and Mindy (Nanu Nanu!). I'm patiently waiting for Lost Girl to come back and will be starting Orphan Black and Defiance soon...



Look at how young Robin was. Robin, can I be you? Your career is perfect ;__;

Was watching Once Upon a Time and after so many plot holes, infantilizing the evil queen ruined it for me.

Was watching Lost Girl and Lauren got thrown to the wolves! (No pun intended!) I'll trust the show will get back on track next season!! So I'm keeping this one.

Was watching warehouse 13 and HG Wells suddenly decided to play desperate housewives forgetting completely about her already committed relationship with Myka! Say byebye warehouse, just cuz you didn't get renewed there was no need to piss all over it!!!

Was watching Game of Thrones and I finally like it! Too many characters, too little time though! Kill them all is my new motto! Also keeping this one, at least until they kill Daenerys or Aria.

Dropped Defiance after 1 ep but alas, HG Wells shagged Jenny Shecter in it and so I'm now watching it again!! Fastforwarding it to the interesting parts though.

Aside form Family Guy, Simpsons and the like... I don't hold much hope for television! They are replaying old shows though... So I can always hope to see something good!

Jesus Christ, MTV introduced the Geordie Shore to me... WTF is wrong with you people?! One wasn't enough????

Never read the books! I actually rarely get my reading fill from books.
In my experience though... The books are always better than the movies/shows! Which is why you should watch them first and then read, else you'll always be disappointed!

Game of thrones was an acquired taste. The plot is good, the characters interesting and it always leaves you wanting to know more. The thing I had an hard time swallowing was the quantity of main characters!! So many people... So many towns... So many settings!!! Everytime I get into one story they switch it to another one! Every character has up to 10 mins, sometimes none.

Even having read the spoilers for the last episode I wasn't prepared for the graphic raw violence. This show doesn't pull back! You need to watch at least one episode!! Be acquainted with the awesomeness that is Lord Tyrion!!

I'll give it a watch, Cap. Only because raw violence tickles my fancy. Just as long as the series doesn't just focus on that, otherwise it'd be another Spartacus clone. :)

As for upcoming TV shows, my attention will be focused on Rizzoli & Isles when it makes it's season 4 return on June 25th. setsuna

Shagging is nice as long as it's a very lovely actress. I usually watch shows with a lot of shagging on Showtime like Shameless and Californication; didn't expect Game of Thrones to have some too. It's more like Spartacus every time I hear about it! XD Only Spartacus had the advantage of parading around naked Lucy Lawless from time to time. Dance

I know it sounds similar, but one show has nothing to do with the other. At all. Even the cinematography is completely different. Spartacus CGI pissed me off to no end. Also I really only enjoyed the second season (the pre-spartacus ordeal).
Game of thrones is clever. The rotten is showed together with the pretty. The only flaw is every time you get into a story it changes to another character in another land. I'd say try one episode but I myself only got into it after almost a whole season because of the marathon episodes at the weekends.

PEOPLE!!!! Orphan Black is the SHAITE!!!
Brilliant plot! Brilliant acting (except you boring boy whose name i don't remember, impressive with shirt off though). Actually scratch brilliant acting, GENIUS ACTING.

The sets are Lost Girl recycled, but what show filmed in Toronto isn't? Lost Girl is recycled from something else as well. But the mood... Those people know what they are doing!!

I get bored very fast and I was hooked until I watched all of the first season yesterday! BRILLIANT acting!! Such a compelling well constructed plot! I didn't fastforward even 2 seconds of the show!!! Can't wait for the next season!! It promises to be as good as the first!!

Quite liked A-Team when the TV station down here saw fit to show it. Otherwise, How I Met Your Mother was another show I kinda liked (I find Barney Stinson really funny, and I think I would go so far as to say that whenever someone says 'Barney', I prefer to think of exquisite suits/playbook/bro-code regardless of who the person actually meant. Legen- wait for it- dary!).

Otherwise, that is more or less it, unless an english-dubbed anime that I take an interest in is appearing on TV (especially if it has an abridged series online).

I finally started going through my TV series DVDs I got from Bali last year. All I watched from the pile before was The Real L Word and didn't get a chance to watch the others. The show I started with first is a now-cancelled ABC Family show, Jane By Design. Imagine if The Devil Wears Prada and Hannah Montana had a child...XD Now bear with me, it's actually pretty good in a fun way.

Basically the show is about the very attractive Jane Quimby (played by Erica Dasher), a high school student who is mistaken for an adult when she applies for a job in a famous fashion business. Throughout the series, she juggles High School life and her fashion business job. Each episode consists of how she's going to pass exams, deal with the guy she likes at school, etc. WHILE making a perfect impression in the fashion world at the same time. This series even has it's own "Miranda Priestly" in Andie Macdowell, who plays Gray Chandler Murray. Gray is strict, brutually honest and sarcastic. A Head Bitch In Charge, woman hear me roar type. Unlike Meryl Streep's character in The Devil Wears Prada, Andie's Gray can be reasonable, but only when Jane uses her own smarts to turn things around in her favor. Very clever! Makes her more on-the-ball than Anne Hathaway.

We get some sub-plots too with Jane's guy best friend, her brother who is hitting on the Asian guidance counselor who once went to High School with him, her high school hater who falls for her best friend, the goofy British coworker and Jane's fashion colleague, India, who can be considered the main antagonist of the series. India is always trying to get Jane fired from her job, only to fail every time like a dimwitted 80s villain from Ninja Turtles and G.I. Joe.

The show is kinda girly yeah, but I kind of enjoy it for being so well written. I prefer to think of these shows as "campy good fun".  It's a shame it only lasted a season. ;_; Oh well, gonna watch the next DVD tonight. 8)

*facepalms herself*
Here are some more series I watched / started watching.....

The Fosters, the first season finished last week. I can get why people love the show so much and I also get why it's that important but that doesn't change that I still don't really like most of the storylines and keep facepalming because of the kids' mistakes, but I still love Stef and Lena so very much so I kept watching ~.~ I am not sure if I will continue watching when the next season comes around (I prob will......)

Wentworth ._. All the feelings. Bea ;___; The music is fantastic btw. : P

Dates I enjoyed this way way more than I thought I would. Looking forward to more :3

Orange is the new Black Enjoyed this so very much. But lately I have been tired of seeing stuff from it ~.~ And another long wait til a next season, whoop whoop.

Dollhouse Something which isn't from this year, yay! Created by Joss Whedon :3 with Eliza Dushku :3² Sadely it got cancelled after two seasons : X I am still in season one and it's been really really good so far.

Pretty Little Liars has been pretty good so far.
Spoiler:
wtf are you doing, Mona though. Also Paige ;__;

And I still haven't started watching Games of Thrones :'D

So next year I will have way too many series to watch X__X
