The Americans (2013)
Centers on Russian deep-cover spies operating in the United States in the 1980s.


So far I like that the timeline deals with factual events in the 80's. This was a great era to set the show in as America was gripped with cold war paranoia and anti-Russian politics. The show centers on the two Russian agents and so far seems to be rather balanced with the ideologies. I like a good spy show and having the political and personal relationship conflicts between the two agents adds to the tension.

Cracked (2013)
Follows teams of cops and psychiatric professionals who make up the Psych Crimes and Crisis unit.


Update - Season Two ~ Bah, so aside from the 'we can replace one blonde actress with another random actress, Detective Aidan Black manages to turn into a complete ass by season two. I guess the show was too emotional and needed to 'butch up' for season two. Well, you officially lost my interest :P

Do No Harm (2013)
Dr. Jason Cole is a highly respected neurosurgeon who has it all - a lucrative career, confident charm, and the gift of compassion. But he also has a deep, dark secret. One morning, when he wakes up disoriented in a wrecked hotel room amidst several near-naked women he's never seen before, he knows one thing: it's happening again.

Basically a modern version of "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde". Might be interesting.

Canceled after only airing two episodes! Gah, and networks wonder why people are watching less network tv.

Revenge (2011)
Season one was pure revenge filled enjoyment. Season two is far more of a soap opera but I'm hooked now and make an effort to never miss an episode.

Sherlock (2010)
If there were any complaints about this show is that it has sort of ruined any other Arthur Conan Doyle adaptation. I would prefer if this isn't me being a snob but just another over zealous fan.

I do think that series three is going to be rather hard to pull off and might end my fan boy delusions.

I wait for the full season to come out on DVD then watch then rent the series. I hate cliff-hanger episodes.

Grimm (2011)
Love the show, hate the season end cliff hangers!!! Why when we typically never know if a show is even going to be aired for another season?

This is one of the few shows filmed in Portland, OR where 'spotting locations I know' isn't a distraction but an extra enjoyment.

ReGenesis (2004)
Streaming on Hulu
ReGenesis is the highly-acclaimed procedural drama about NorBAC, the North American Biotechnology Advisory Committee. Headed by the brilliant but unpredictable biologist Dr. David Sandstrom and CIA Executive Director Caroline Morrison, they are the first responders to bio-terror attacks, rapid epidemic outbreaks and potential mass killers that are all around us, but virtually unseen.

I have no idea how I found this tv show but I fell in love with the first episode. One worth re-watching IMO.

I actually liked this show and it was up for several awards. So, in the proud tradition of dumping any show with potential ABC canceled the show... something they are well known for doing.

Meh, there really isn't anything new to this show. Which surprised me considering all the high praise. I found it to be another boring British Aristocracy tv show. If it weren't for Maggie Smith I doubt I would have watch more then two episodes.

For the most part the TV I watch is just 'brain candy' and something to watch so I don't get totally burnt out on watching films. I'm also finding any sort of diary rather difficult as I find show to watch streaming or a friend lends me the dvd's and I watch a bunch of episodes all at once and then never again.
