Don't really watch that much TV. Except for The Clone Wars, I mostly watch reruns of Seinfeld and King of Queens.

I watched Lost for the first couple of seasons, but it didn't interest me. 24's interesting when I can catch it, and so is Bones. I watched the first season of the Sarah Conner Chronicles and loved it, but I haven't been able to start the 2nd season yet.

I haven't watched television in a good while... just nothing that interesting on anymore. I missed the first few seasons of shows like 24 and Lost, so I plan on buying the boxsets and go through them before catching the new episodes. The only prime-time show I have taken interest in is Nip/Tuck. It's great, but the seasons are always rather shorter than other series. Other than that, my new 42-inch HDTV is collecting dust. :P

Eh...pretty much only snips of Chuck, some Flight of the Conchords, and The Colbert Report.
Watched the first Heroes Season, but for some reason I haven't caught up... :?

2nd season is kinda rough because it happened during the writer's strike which jacked things up... And I like Chuck... fun show - but behind on this season (they're on the DVR, however).

Yeah, the writer's strike came at rather an inopportune time...I might end up getting the DVD of the 2nd season, just not sure whether it'll be worth it. (probably not)
So far, I'm still catching up on the first season of Chuck, but I've enjoyed it so far.

Currently some of my favourite tv series are Pushing Daisies (Emerson! is most definately for the win), Battlestar Galactica (current version), Deadwood and Carnivale (sniff, if only they hadn't been cancelled)

I've been enjoying Heroes a great deal, but I have to admit that the first season was my favourite and the rest not as much.

I also really like Ugly Betty. The charcters are so over-the-top they're hilarious. Thankfully, it's supposed to be over-the-top and they don't take themselves too seriously.

Other than that, there isn't a lot I watch. In fact, this is the first year in a few years that I've actually had a TV. Other than the shows above, the occasional movie, and Animal Planet. There isn't much that interests me.

I have been watching heroes as well, this season is not on par with the 1st but if they can get past this overpopulation in each episode ... they're cramming. they need to spilt it up and have them spread out the different storylines a little.

Other than that, Stargate Atlantis, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Sarah Jane Adventures, ... and i need to catch up on the 3 CSIs, i'm way behind with those.

My problem with Heroes is...

Will make font small so ye have to Quote to see it... don't want to spoil it.

They have killed off so many characters, that when Parkman and the Speedster (forgot her name, but love her character) faked their death, I was like, "Big deal." And then when they threw Peter out a window (I knew he wasn't going to die), but the idea of death has been pushed SO much this time - it's like I just don't care. Not to mention they killed characters I actually really liked and wanted to see more of - mainly Adam. So my interest has rapidly been falling. If something happens to Elle - that may be it for me and HEROES.
