I think that there's no finer show on American television right now than NBC's Dateline news magazine spin-off, <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HpIuQrhcC0&search=Dateline%20TO%20Catch%20a%20Predator" target="_blank">To Catch a Predator</a>.

It's more or less the only current program I still watch anymore.

However, I sometimes enjoy:
LOST
Battlestar Galactica
24 (the first few seasons)
Arrested Development
The Tick (Live Action)
Family Guy (first few seasons)

Old Saturday Morning Cartoons:
Batman: The Animated Series
Superman: The Animated Series
X-Men
Spider-Man
The Tick

Old Toonami/Adult Swim Fare:
Outlaw Star
G Gundam
Ronin Warriors
Cowboy Bebop
Trigun
Ghost in the Shell
Sealab 2021
Harvey Birdman
Venture Bros
Stroker & Hoop

Yes, I'm quite a geek on off-days.

It's a great show, anyone see Harry Hill on Stars in their Eyes? "Tonight Matthew, I am going to be.......Morrissey!". He played this charming man, it was pretty funny.

Personally I love The Office! The UK version that is, not the American one…

I don’t watch TV that often, I used to watch Hotel Cæsar (A Norwegian series), but not anymore.

I’ve downloaded some series as well, like:
Curb Your Enthusiasm,
Little Britain
So on…

But I was wondering, I’ve heard about this series called “People Like Us” and I’ve seen some clips from it, anyone who knows anything about it, worth buying?

Ditto. Curb Your Enthusiasm is the most hillarious sitcom since Seinfeld, Larry David is the best... Well I also like Saturday Night Live (any season), Huff :ph34r: , The Sopranos, Extras... ETC.

A lot of new tv is rubbish, some of my OLD favourites are:

Red Dwarf, Goodnight Sweetheart, Quantum Leap, Absoloutely Fabulous, The Vicar Of Dibley, Open All Hours, Birds Of A Feather, Hi-De-Hi, Are you being served!, Only fools and horses. I love classic british comedies.

it's a long time since i've posted in this thread. i just wanted to say that lately i've been getting into "QI," "spaced," "extras" and "the IT crowd," and i'm really really getting into "black books," i think i may be slightly addicted... i seem get into shows way after everyone else on earth has discovered them, must be cos i don't have my own TV. :(

I recently downloaded Heroes Season One via torrent. I have to say it's a pretty good show, but they speak terrible Japanese. I don't understand why they hire non-Japanese actors to play Japanese parts. It's really annoying.

As for the Daily Show I thought it was 10000000000x better when it was hosted by Craig Kilbourne. I can't stand Jon Stewart.

Another show I really like is Ainori, it's a reality show about young people traveling the world trying to find true love, it's a little sappy but very cute and the innocence of the show is very refreshing.
