I'm mostly watching DVDs recently, the telly's just for news and the odd film. TV shows I watch on DVD are
TORCHWOOD
SPOOKS
NCIS
DS9
SIMPSONS
DOCTOR WHO
VENTURE BROS.
FUTURAMA
MENTALIST
ALIAS
THE AVENGERS
THE PERSUADERS
THE SAINT
SHERLOCK
SOPRANOS

As you can see, I don't watch a lot new stuff. Not because I don't like it, because I'm mostly not yet done with the old stuff.

Doctor Who and Torchwood. That's all I watch on TV really, nothing on Engish TV is that good anymore.

As for American TV Shows though, I'm quite taken to Family Guy, Desperate Housewives and 24. The latter two have ended, though.

Haven't watched the show since. Ed Helms is funny, but he's not THAT funny.

Part of it has to do with the fact that Steve Carrell was hilarious and the show was great with him. He brings a special presence to the show, as do most of the other characters. I've seen a few episodes with Helms, and it just doesn't feel the same. It just feels like something is missing.

I've been thinking and I'm hoping that he'll come back for the last season, I think it would round out the series nicely. I believe his character left the company just before his 20th anniversary with them and it would be so like his character to return just to reach that milestone. Although then they would have to do something about Ed Helms character....

I've just got really into CASTLE simply because Stana Katic from Quantum Of Solace stars in it, there is also a few spin-off/tie-in novels I'm keeping an eye out for.

I just seen the last episode of BREAKING BAD season 3, so I started watching season 4: Not one of my favorite shows but none the less interesting and entertaining.

Last Resort is a new 2012 tv show and the first episode is directed by Martin Campbell.
This trailer has gotten me excited for the show.

Last Resort looks interesting. I won't be able to watch it tomorrow night, but I'll probably give it a viewing over the weekend.

Still haven't caught up on any of the new shows that have debuted so far this week. I keep hearing good things aboutNBC's Revolution, which is near the top of my list of shows to catch up on over the weekend. Also still haven't caught the season premiere of Castle, which the fanbase has been raving about ever since Monday.

Just caught Last Resort on Hulu today. Very strong start for an ABC show. Tom Clancy meets TV is not a bad way to put it. The pilot however is spent mostly setting up the premise and does so at a blistering pace. While this is incredibly intriguing, the only worry is if they run out of steam too quick. However, they've put enough interesting open questions and decent character conflicts in the first hour sprint that I highly recommend tuning in again.

With 'Fables' being a guilty pleasure of me I recently caught the first episodes of ONCE UPON A TIME. Interesting. I'd have preferred if they had given Willingham's comic a try and I'm constantly expecting House to lurch around the corner. But Carlyle already comes across ten times more intimidating and villainous than he did in TWINE. He came aboard the Bond steamer ten years too early methinks...

‘Last Resort’ really got my attention, I`m not all that thrilled about the cast however the plot seems thick enough. Reminds me of the show 'Jericho', perhaps this show will do better. ‘Castle’ was alright too, I would like to think the rest of the season will be focused on Kate’s mothers murder.

Finally caught the premiere of Castle. The show has a bit of the magic back, thanks to several new developments that occur in the premiere episode. Thankfully, a lot of the gloomy nonsense and frustrating back and forth that almost sunk season 4 has been put to bed and, hopefully with the episode that aired last night, things can start heading back in the fun direction that the series was all about in its first two seasons.

Still haven't gotten around to Last Resort or Revolution yet, but they're next up on the Hulu Plus que. Also picked up the first season of American Horror Story, which I wanted to watch last year but never got around to.

Hawaii Five-0...The ONLY show that's worth watching on TV these days... CBS got this reboot 100% right and Season 3 just kicked off in an explosive manner!!...Alex O'Laughlin, Scott Caan, Grace Park and Daniel Dae Kim are just AWESOME!! Funny but in Episode 1 of Season 3, there is a sequence where McGarret's nemesis, Wo Fat (played by Iron Chef host Mark Dacascos) escapes from police custody in a very You Only Live Twice and Licence To Kill manner.. defenitely some Bond references in there!!
