All-time favorite:
Jeopardy!

Currently Airing Favorites:
The Office (US)
How I Met Your Mother
Lost

Cancelled/Run Their Course:
Firefly
Mr. Show with Bob & David
The Kids in the Hall
Futurama

Former Favorites - What Happened?
Seinfeld - seems to get less and less funny every time I see it. I don't know why.

The Simpsons - The last 10 seasons have been mediocre-to-good (with the exception of the amazing episode "24 Minutes").

Family Guy - Still funny, but they rely on jokes that repeat or go on for way too long more and more these days.

X-Files - The anthology episodes got worse and worse and besides, does anyone care now that we know what happened? I fear this will happen with Lost, although, to Lost's credit, they're purposefully ending the show next season to avoid the downward spiral to awfulness that happened to the X-Files in its final seasons.

Favorite Saturday Morning Show:
Pee-Wee's Playhouse. It's still great today, though best in small doses.

No particular order (and a lot like others'):

Star Trek (though I really can't rewatch it much more, if that makes sense)
Star Trek: DS9
Battlestar Galactica remake (the whole frakkin' thing!)
Babylon 5
Seinfeld
Doctor Who (both)
Mad Men
early House
Twin Peaks (mostly the first season, though)

I'll probably think of one later.

Bad timing, you're missing a bit of a golden age of TV drama - Oz, the Wire, the Sopranos, Mad Men, Weeds, Entourage, Lost, BSG, lots and lots of deep, intelligent television in the last decade. Surprisingly large amounts in fact.


It'll be on whatever disc we'll be using when my boys are grown. I go to bed pretty early, so the only TV we watch as a family is Andy Griffith on DVD.
