You guys ever seen the bounty hunter show called Dog? I've only seen an episode or two. Pretty interesting to me.

My favorite show on right now is probably Arrested Development. You guys ever see Wonderfalls? That was a fantastic show on Fox for 4 weeks, but the DVD was recently released. It's great.

Isn't Wonderfalls with Brad Pitt? I remember it is really old. Maybe I'm thinking of another movie.

Dog looks interesting. Right now on my Tivo I got "The Amazing Race", "American Chopper", "The Simpsons" (of course), "Battlestar Galactica", "American Casino", "CSI", "The Apprentice", "Lost", "Star Trek: Enterprise", "Arrest Development" and a few other random items.

Damn, I need to catch up on those quick!

Battlestar Galactica is terrific. And Ron Moore is releasing podcast commentaries of each episode on scifi.com.

I spend more time on my PC then infront of the box however I am currently watching a re run of Stargate from the beggining and Star Trek TNG (for the umpteenth time). I have also got hooked on Desperate Housewives though being in England I am ofcourse way behind most of you when it comes to these shows.

Wow your from England? How is the crime out there? I only ask because I'm considering moving out there for a year or two.

 Here is a website on Crime Reduction, with statistics on Crime in the UK if you're really interested, from what I see though in my area. Crime isn't that bad even though according to the rest of the country all Scousers (people from Liverpool) are theives and major criminals. I've never been beaten up by thugs nor has my house been robbed.
 England is a safe place, but if you start reading all the government adverts that are being put up you'ld believe otherwise. The government are a bunch of old, dying fat targ's, who's ridges are fainter than a vulcan who has just had ridge reduction surgery.
 Want to know anything else about this amazing country of ours simply ask again, but if I where you I would think about moving to Liverpool where all the really nice people live.

Depends, do you want to commit it, prevent it or try to avoid it?

I love Star Trek. Only TNG and Enterprise though.

 I love Star Trek as well, didn't you like Voyager. I thought that to be better than Enterprise (although Season 4 has been the best so far and is sadly the last). TNG is obviously the best, unless you where a child when the original was created then your more likely to be inclinded to choose that. TNG has it all, battles, the future and Jean Luc Picard the greatest Star Fleet Captain ever who also enjoys classical litrature. Whatta Guy.

Well I'm a good guy so I want to prevent it when possible and aviod it also. Here in America though it is not funny. Just a few months ago some guy broke into my house and lunged at me. Sent me flying back into a chair and knocked me out. Fortainatly the dude ran after that. Then my neighbor was held at gun point a few days ago. I was just curious if it was as bad out there as it is here.

 No England's isn't that bad, yet. There seems to be a culture lag between the US and here. Whatever your crime levels are 10 years ago it seems to happen here. Gun Crime isn't that rapent though, although if you do mix with the wrong people you have a good chance of being shot. I think Gun Crime in the UK is low maybe 100 gun murders a year roughly, the real danger is clubbers after drinking. That's where a lot of the murders in the UK occur, people getting the **** kicked out of them by a mob of drunken scum. As I say mix with the right people and your okay, apart from that it's probably on par with countrys like Canada.
 Anyway this shouldn't be in this topic anyway, if you really want to know more move it into another topic. Or we could find our bottoms quite sore.

My favorite shows are, in no particular order, as follows: Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, Smallville, Mythbusters, Monty Python's Flying Circus, and 24.

Wow, that crime is crazy. I have lived in New York state and around New York City my entire life and I have never had anything criminal happen to me. Well, I have had friends pick pocketed, but nothing violent or anything.

In fact, I feel 100% completely safe in New York City. People here are smart enough to know that you do not want to go to a NYC jail ... even for a single night! Everyone is pretty well behaved I would say ... or perhaps I'm just a "tough" New Yorker and I don't notice it anymore. Probably a bit of both...

If I ever watch TV, I usually watch "The Local News," "A Random Special on the History Channel," "Smallville," or "Mythbusters."

Scrubs and Arrested Development are my favourite shows right now all though I don't watch a lot of tv these days.  The British version of the Office is also very cool.  I also enjoy South Park for the educational content.  Other than that, I watch Adult Swim like a good male college student and Food Network when it's Alton Brown or Iron Chef.  -leeman

I can't believe I forgot one of my favorite shows of all time... I also watch "The Cosby Show" when the mood suits me (or when it doesn't). I heart Bill Cosby.

Heh..
Star Trek is just the best!
I think that the best series are TNG and DS9, don't really like Enterprise that much...
Maybe because it isn't on TV in Norway, therefore I have only watched a few episodes.

Smallville and CSI are also nice series ;D
