I don’t really watch a whole ton of TV, instead I  watch it all on the internet and on dvd. haha. Most of the shows I like have had only one season runs, so I tend to watch them over again dreaming what could have been…

Jpod: Only one season produced based on the book by Douglas Coupland, A group of video game developers/artists working in a basement in Vancouver and all the crazy stuff they get upto.

This Hour Has 22 Minutes: this series features satirical sketches of the weekly news and Canadian political events. Hilarious stuff.

The Rick Mercer Report: Basically a camera follows comedian Rick Mercer around as he does weird and hilarious things across canada. Also features the “famous” rants he is known to do.

Kids in the Hall/Death Comes to Town: I am a huge Kids in the Hall fan and own 2 out of the 5 dvds of their show they put out (I would have more but they are so damn expensive) and when I found out they were making a new show “Death Comes to Town” well….how could I not love it!

Futurama: Love, love, love. So happy they finally are getting a new season going.

Simpsons (pre-1999): Classic Simpsons. Enough said.

The Black Adder: Such a good show. The series follows the exploits of Richard IV’s unfavoured second son Edmund (who calls himself “The Black Adder”) in his various attempts to increase his standing with his father and in the final episode his quest to overthrow him. *and yes, I totally stole that from wiki*

Robson Arms: Set in Vancouver, this show follows the lives of everyone who lives in the apartment building called Robson Arms. This show has made me laugh, cry, terrified and sick to my stomach. Such a work of art.

Freaks and Geeks: If you have never heard of this show, go and watch it now. Cannot believe it only got one season (well I can, because it was just TOO good).

Cake Boss: Screaming Italians and cake. What isn’t there to love.

Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations: Traveling, Food and a misanthropic host. Really, can’t go wrong.

Hahaha, and the food network. The entire network.

 

This got wayyy longer than I expected. I am such a nerd. hahah.

I don’t watch a whole lot of tv, I prefer to read. However, I love NCIS, The Office, House, and Judge Judy (that show is such entertaining entertainment :-P)

@vicarswifeintraining: Very interesting!  I have never heard of the shows you mentioned!  Maybe they are on Netflix though.

@sceeder: We watched the entirety of Freaks and Geeks in about 2 weeks this winter! It was really good.

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy: GG and Friends are old favorites for me. I’ve been a little obsessed with SVU lately since we got Netflix again and they’re all on Instant Watch! I love Elliot and Olivia. I’m convinced they’re secretly in love. 😀

@vicarswifeintraining: I was just talking with a friend today who was telling me about her favorite UK shows, especially game shows. She was saying they’re hilarious. I might try to youtube some!

 

ETA: Oh, and the only other show I watch that’s current is 30 Rock. So funny.

I love 3 shows that are from the UK, which I watched on Youtube or Hulu:

Spaced!!!! I can’t believe there are only 2 seasons! I was so sad when I finished the 2nd one.

Peep Show: I love this show too! I relate to Mark Corrigan. I have spent many hours laughing over this show.

The Book Group:  Somehow I got really into this show, and was sad to see that it only had two seasons! It wasn’t as funny as the other two but I liked the characters and format.

And the shows I like from my home country are:

Mad Men

Party Down

Arrested Development

30 Rock

Parks & Recreation

Parenthood

I don’t have cable so I have watched some of these on DVD and on the internet. I have a very boring desk job so I actually watch more TV at work than at home!

@chocolatemalt: Arrested Development is awesome. I still hold out hope for a movie, even though I know it is never going to happen 🙁
