We don't watch a lot of regular T.V. We own plenty of DVDs and have streaming Netflix, so who needs a lot of poorly written, sex in your face shows invading your house and your senses?
Also, it seems that whenever I really like a show, it ends up getting canceled after one or two seasons, so it's better to not get into a series until it has been around a couple of years.
Freaks and Geeks
Pushing Daisies *huge sigh*
No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency
All very high quality shows, and only Pushing Daisies made it past year one, but only just. So right now we actually enjoy The Dick Van Dyke Show in reruns on Netflix, revisit a kinder, gentler past with DVDs of Firefly and Pushing Daisies, and catch the occasional episode of Castle on Monday nights. But only occasionally. I mean really, who has time for T.V.?
