My favourite at the moment:

Game of Thrones
Mad Men
Doctor Who (although I'm very far behind in it, still on season 6)
Downton Abbey

I also like rewatching an occasional Star Trek episode now and then (I used to watch it all the time a few years ago).

I'm currently re-watching The Cosby Show and Roseanne on Youtube... memories, oh memories...

I once dreamt of Sara Gilbert and fell in love with her, for months. Until the dream used to fade away. And now I learnt that she is married to a former 4 non Blonde... My luck. Just when I was about to become beautiful and butch :-( .

I have a new favourite comedy- The Big Bang Theory. Only started watching it about a month or so ago- already bought seasons 1-5 on DVD. It's the only American comedy that can actually make me laugh out loud.

#1 on my top 5.

I haven't had tv since January, and am often gone fishing on the Saturday nights it's on repeat here, so I've missed a season.

My bf doesn't really care for the program, he's got the nerd potential of Penny so most of the comical references go right over his head. :roll:

I've a short attention span these days, which is reflected in my other top 5:

Two and a Half Men (preferably the older shows)
Just about anything on Adult Swim, but especially American Dad or Robot Chicken. Family Guy isn't very funny anymore IMO.
House Hunters International
Chopped
.It is my uppermost hope that even histories' genius's lost their minds as they aged. I'd hate to think that I really am an idiot. sjm

Someone suggested I should watch that and it coincided with one of the channels showing the whole series from episode one at an episode a night. Managed to watch every episode including the latest series in a space of about 6 weeks. Pure brilliance.

Also got into Breaking Bad recently. Decided I wanted to try it out so I went to the shops to buy season 1 for a tenner and found a box set of the first three seasons for £20. That was 3 or 4 weeks ago and I'm off to get season 4 in a little while. If you don't see me on here for a few days...

Recently, eventually finished Fringe (Season 5), and got through Game Of Thrones (S1) over two days.

Waiting for :- Homeland (S2), and the second half of the final season of Breaking Bad, I assume there's more than the eight episodes that came out a few months back.

They're about 3 episodes from the end on Netflix (each episode is available a couple of days after it's shown in America). The DVD is released on Nov 25.

The Big Bang Theory is indeed Pure Brilliance in my opinion!

The first five series in particular are so good. The best and funniest stuff on TV for years I reckon.
Hot Space is actually only my 6th favourite Queen album.
(But is a very underrated album in my opinion).

If you really liked Band Of Brothers, then Pacific isn't too far off it. I think some of the people involved did both.

Yeah, I'm fairly sure the technical crew was the same on both productions.

The trouble with The Pacific is that it came after Band of Brothers. It's very, very good... but it's nowhere near as good as Band of Brothers.

A top five, you say?

Ever, you say?

Gawd, that's a toughie... missing out so much magnificence with just five.

1. Doctor Who
2. The Mighty Boosh
3. Bottom
4. The X-Files
5. Spaced

Honourable mentions must go to 24, Life On Mars, Red Dwarf, Mongrels, The Day Today, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace and The League Of Gentlemen.
