1. 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.

2. 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

3. 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.


What I tend to watch...

This is listed by what I give priority to watching. Every thing else I sort of watch on and off.

4. 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.

5. 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.

9. 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.

23. 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 really enjoyed the first three seasons but I don't think I'll make the effort to watch season five.

Watched the first two seasons and while enjoyable. They are ether sort of dated or just not for me.


Might watch...

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.

There are still rumors that this might return as a US export but that has typically been the kiss of death on any UK produced tv show.

The sexy supernatural thriller sort of hit a peak with me by season three. I just simply stopped caring about any of the characters.

I think I lost interest around season four, just too depressing and whinny. "I went to Hell" "I lost my soul" "I'm demonic"... bla bla bla...

35. Downton Abbey (2010)
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.

Pure entertainment trash. Which is fine but I would rather watch reruns of old tv shows.

Dr. Who, The Walking Dead and American Horror Story are on streaming so I want to check them out at some point this year and I would also like to watch Dexter - I am still trying to figure out how to best put together a TV log, as the amount of movies I watch curtails any consistent TV watching, there was a time when it was the opposite - but there are a few shows that I always make time for.
Posted: 1 year, 2 months ago at Jan 27 13:24
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.

I like TV as a way of not getting burnt out on movies too, but I don't always make the time for it, maybe I need to set aside one day a week as a 'TV Day'- it will have to wait until March though as February is a big movie month for me - There have been TV shows that I have watched entirely on DVD or streaming and sometimes I enjoy shows more that way rather then having to follow them once a week - the way networks schedule shows with so much time off annoys me and when I do get into a new show, it ends up getting cancelled, that is why most of the shows I watch on the networks now are comedies - dramas take to much effort - but I am looking forward to Do No Harm :)

I am watching season three of Dexter now, I liked the first two, but season three is getting close to jumped the shark territory, but I'll see how it ends.
