    What are your favorite shows on TV?
    What's your favorite all-time?

    I have to put shows on my tablet to able to watch them all. There are just too many.


    My faves right now:

    Banshee
    Breaking Bad
    Game Of Thrones
    American Horror Story
    The Walking Dead
    CSI
    Justified
    Person Of Interest
    Sons Of Anarchy
    Dexter
    Elementary
    Supernatural
    The Mentalist
    and, I can't believe it but.....Arrow


    Favorite all-time - The Wire

    There are some shows I have to check out like Cult and Zero Hour but I like to record one show's full season (or close to it) and run through it as the only thing I watch.

    I still have to watch 2 seasons of Homeland, a season of Shameless, House Of Lies, 2 seasons of Boss, etc. I don't watch much reality TV besides Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, Man Vs. Food (both for finding my undiscovered spots), Restaurant Stakeout, and a few others.

    I find most reality TV...garbage.

    edit: I forgot to add

    Being Human!

    You might like the t.v. show "Revenge" because it is about a young single gal
    that is taking her revenge on people responsible for putting her dad in jail when she was a little girl.
    The best part is that they never find out that it was her that ruined people's careers who took part in not helping her dad to get out of jail eventhough there was no evidence against her father. Those people were just interested in climbing their career ladder and her father got killed in jail because someone ordered the hit.

    Have you ever taken your revenge on someone and that person didn't know that it was you that paid them back and they never knew it was you?

    That is why it is always important to be nice to everybody because you never know who knows someone important that can take their revenge on you and you will never know who did it.lol. That happens a lot in Hollywood for reals.
    I hear about it all the time. LucyR.

    Actually I watched the first season. It was surprisingly good and I didn't think I'd like such a soap "opery" type show.

    I'm waiting for the 2nd season to finish to start it.

    Sadly, Breaking Bad has only 8 episodes left (this year).

    I was sad when The Shield finished too.

    my 4 year olds friend from school mom works on Chicago Fire. I guess Lady Gaga is dating someone from this show so they see her there occasionally.

    Yet I never got into that show. My wife is watching it which is basically the death knell for any show so I"ve been berating her for putting her poor friend out of work. :evillaugh:Þ:poke::Þ:evillaugh

    Anyway, here is my DVR current ranking:

    #1 The American's
    #2 Vikings
    #3 Vegas
    #4 Zero Hour
    #5 Dual Survival
    #6 Bering Sea Gold
    #7 Rules of Engagement
    #8 Law & Order SVU
    #9 The Layover
    #10 Meet The Press
    #11 PGA Tour Golf
    #12 The Bible

    Yeah, pretty lame I know. My wife calls my lineup "The snoozers"

    CSI and not just for the Vegas "connection" though, that doesn't hurt. I just like the show... have since it's inception, even with the changing cast. Never warmed up to the NY or Miami versions however.

    Oops... Zamboni's post below reminded me I totally spaced Modern Family... it IS the best show on TV right now IMHO.

    I like the new show Vegas, but prefer sit-coms:

    Modern Family (watched it since night one, and it's still great)

    Raising Hope (Greg Garcia is awesome- Yes, Dear and My Name is Earl were his other shows)

    Big Bang Theory (Sheldon, that is all that needs to be said)

    Mike and Molly (entire cast is great, but Vince is my fave)

    We don't watch alot of TV but there are a few we always DVR, twomainly reality series Duck Dynasty, Survivor, America Unearthed, The Taste and DW has to watch the Biggest Loser for some reason LOL.
    Series:
    Big Bang Theory
    Vegas
    Last man Standing
    Modern Family
    Reba
    The latest is the new show Vikings, my family traces back to the Vikings who settled the Orkney and Shetland regions of Scotland before the Clan split and part of it moved to Zurich in the 1300s. I am really hoping this gives a truer view than was written down by the Christian Monks who most history on the Vikings is based on.

    Wow no one watches Game Of Thrones?

    That's like the hottest show on TV!

    I was late to it and had to watch almost 2 seasons in a row.
