So I thought I would start this topic of with a few shows that I have been enjoying recently.

Suits
Person of Interest
Castle
Big Bang Theory
White Collar
The Mentalist

Hopefully these are now open to discussion

I loved Castle, I watched a few seasons a while back on Netflix. And have been waiting for them to add the new seasons. Think it's about time I just buy the DVDs.

Ever watch Firefly? I was a huge fan of that and I think most of the reason I enjoy Castle so much is because of the way Nathan Fillion plays Rick and the similarities to Mal Reynolds.

I love Person of Interest and the original CSI, and recently I have been catching up on Big Bang Theory with the latest season that was released on DVD...

Firefly is a permanent fixture on my Netflix queue, and never shall it depart from there. I haven't watched Castle though. Since I recently watched the entirety of Firefly again, I actually decided to give Farscape a try and it's actually pretty decent.

I don't often watch a lot of live TV (basically PoI and CSI), but I sometimes run some Netflix in the background while I work.

House MD is quite possibly my favourite show of all time. It is in a tie with Chuck and Scrubs. Newer stuff anyway- not counting some of the English classics like Blackadder, Fawlty Towers and Only Fools and Horses which to be honest I am not sure many here would have seen!

No I have not watched Firefly. I have deliberately kept away from it to avoid the rage of it only having one season. I do like Nathan Fillion as an actor though- very charismatic!

AHHHHHH!

Too many opinions on so many great shows. Don't know where to start.

Firstly some great classic British shows. Blackadder is absolute class, could quote 'Goes Forth' all day. And Fawlty Towers, the machines at work were programmed by foreign contractors and so the spelling on the control page is hilariously bad. Every time we put a robot in 'Manuel' mode results in all sorts quotes being thrown around. One of my favourites:

"I know nothing about the horse." - https://www.youtube.com/w ... atch?v=s6EaoPMANQM

House MD is on my watchlist. Very excited to see that at some point.

Archer is hilarious. "Paging Dr Loggins"

And I couldn't advise Boardwalk Empire anymore. Steve Buscemi nails every scene and Chalky White has to be one of my favorite characters of all time.

I'm currently watching Supernatural. which is great but not as amazing as everyone else has had me belive. That said I'm only in Season 1 so it might pick up.

And soon have to re-watch Sons Of Anarchy. I've watched Seasons 1 & 2 and loved them but it was along time ago so I may hit them again so I can go on to the rest in my box set.

A lot of friends suggested Supernatural to me in the past. I ended up buying Season 1 and while I liked it, I wasn't really eagerly awaiting the next episode.

A-Team, Knight Rider, Airwolf, Magnum P.I., The Dukes of Hazard, MacGyver... ah, the good old days. Although, I think with Airwolf, I mostly just watched for the sweet theme music and awesome helicopter; I don't recall much of a plot line with that one.

Lately, I actually probably spend what little evening free-time I do have either playing games or watching the few shows I still care about:
Person of Interest
CSI
Elementary
Cut-Throat Kitchen

I thought I might try to reinvigorate some of these discussions about movies, sports etc. I saw a mention of Sons of Anarchy earlier in this discussion. I have just made it to early season 3 over the last few weeks and want to highly recommend it as it is a superb, hard hitting show!

**Edit - and it is on netflix too**
