1. The Amazing Race, Survivor, Revenge, yup same old same old but wait. What do what we have here? It's Arrow! A testosterone-charged Revenge - he and Emily should compare notes - I was hooked from the get-go, and best of all, I managed to get hubby hooked as well! Not an easy thing to do when his staple TV is sports, sports and more sports. Anyway, I do hope that the second episode won't disappoint. And also, seeing Oliver Queen for the first time, that was exactly how I had hoped Dean would look like, coming out from his Purgatory. Yeah yeah, still a sore point with me, that.

2. Downton Abbey. Finally. Took them long enough *grumbles*

3. Bones, CSI:NY, Once Upon A Time. Anyone watching Bones here? Did anyone else think that FBI Special Agent Olivia Sparling was very much like Daisy? I'm actually quite glad that Lance broke up with Daisy, she's grating, though it *was* kind of sad. Funnily enough, I won't mind if Lance were to hook up with that FBI agent. Even though she's a lot like Daisy, I don't think she'd have the kind of hero-worship that Daisy had on him and I like that.

4. Merlin, Beauty And The Beast, Two And A Half Men.

5. Supernatural. Still very much my regular show even though it has fallen down the list. It's not so much me not being excited about it as much as me dreading each new episode, wondering what else the writers are going to put them through. I like episode 2 well enough, especially *those* scenes. Still waiting for the other shoe to drop though, like Cas being dead, maybe even at the hands of Dean omg *horrors* And that's not a spoiler, I know absolutely nothing about the next episodes. And also, I'm so afraid that Dean is now the Big Bad or something, though I have to say I wouldn't really mind that, because I have absolute faith in Jensen Ackles, that he can carry that off with aplomb and much finesse.

6. Revolution. Not much excitement there anymore but I'm still watching. Anyone slashing Miles/Munroe already? :)

I'm also watching Fringe regularly but since I haven't catched up with the current season ( still somewhere in season 4 ), I'm not including that in my list, but if I were to do so, Fringe would certainly be there at Number One!

I'll be watching Walking Dead as well. My kid insists that I should. Though I've got a good mind not to, the way he's harrasing me to watch it lol.

And just to put it there, if these shows are airing right now, they'd ALL be at the #1 spot - Sherlock, Game of Thrones, Dallas and Suits.

I'm dropping Elementary btw. I'm afraid the second episode is a bit too slow for me. I'll probably pick it up again once Joan Watson shows real interest in Sherlock, platonic or otherwise.

What are you watching?

Okay, this is what I'll watch on my DVR (in order):
1. Revenge
2. Arrow, Alphas, Covert Affairs, and Partners (although Alphas will end next Monday)
3. Person of Interest, Supernatural, NCIS, Revolution, Criminal Minds, Vampire Diaries, and CSI
4. Last Resort, Grimm

I think I'm dropping 666 Park Avenue already, Elementary too. Will give Beauty and the Beast one more week only... just in case. Did you watch Emily Owens? I actually liked it. And I'm still undecided about Chicago Fire after 1 week.

If Leverage and Justified were on, they'd be at #1 too because I can never wait to watch those!

I lost interest in Leverage two seasons ago. I'm not sure why I just can't drum up the desire to watch it.

I like Beauty and the Beast a lot more now that Catherine and Vincent have come to some sort of an understanding with each other. And I like JT the side kick :) And I probably will pick up Elementary again once Joan and Sherlock begin to like each other more. As it is, I thought Joan can't wait to get away from him, and when one lead character seems bored, the show doesn't work for me.

You're the second person to mention Emily Owens. I'll give it a try!

My shows in terms of level on what I'm watching only. :P

Can't say I'm too excitied anymore but have been at one time or another, so I'm still fond of them and there are actors I still love on some of these shows so I'm being a loyal fan and watch no matter what. :)

Shows in order on what day of the week it airs here.

1. CSI
2. House (We're on last season finally)
3. Revenge (Still excites me for sure!)
4. Merlin
5. The Mentalist

Shows I watch but that are on a break at the moment.

Sherlock, Game of Thrones (very excited for these two!)
Bones-(We just finished SE6), NCIS LA, Hawaii-five-0, Amazing Race, Downton Abbey-(only watched SE1 and missed SE2 on TV but hope they air it again)

Sometimes I also see Criminal minds, CSI NY, Suits... can't think of more at the moment but I'm sure there are more. Right, I skipped all comedy series. I do see a few.

I have all of the Dallas episodes recorded and will get to see it soon I hope. So I'm not sure I will like it or not yet.

Hmmm, I wonder where 24 would be if it were still airing.


And love, you're the only here who mentioned TAR and I adore you for that ♥

I hope you'll like Dallas because I want to squee about it with you!!

I nearly went off you!

I kept watching Revenge because of you and they Nolan got attacked!??!???!????

I looked it up and I know he's okay but really? Noland? He's the only one I like!

A lot of people love Nolan so I don't think they'd get rid of him. I, for one, would be very upset if they did!

Did you see that episode when he introduced, or tried to introduce, Emily to Padma? That was quite funny! Poor Nolan. He's gay ( bi? But I don't think so ) so I don't think he's in love with Emily, but I do think that he's very fond of her, and I think it's adorable the way he ships Emily/Jack.

That new guy is quite hot, isn't he? As Nolan would have said, lucky Ems :))

I for two would be very upset if they got rid of Noland!

I also don't want him paired off. He's too good at looking sadly through the window at everyone else's happiness.

I regularly watch American Pickers, Hoarders, Project Runway, Top Chef, Survivor, Gold Rush: Alaska, Big Bang Theory, old episodes of M*A*S*H, Pit Bulls and Parolees, 60 Minutes, and any documentaries about archaeology.

I watched American Pickers and Project Runaway occasionally. And of course, Survivor. Speaking of, I'm so glad that Denise and Malcolm aren't on the chopping blocks, since they're new to their tribes and all. I guess since they've been to the tribal council for so many times already, I feel like I know them better than I do the others!

About the only "must see" new fall show on my list is Arrow. I have some Elementary on the DVR but haven't had time to watch any of them besides the pilot, which was "eh" for me. But my other "must see" new (or at least new-to-me) shows from the summer are Hell on Wheels (oh my goodness, Anson Mount... *swoon*) and Copper. I saw the pilot for Last Resort and while it didn't make me squee it was good enough to add to the DVR for dead-of-winter-nothing-else-on watching.

Still DVRing my standby shows like Person of Interest, Castle, White Collar (though it's ended for the season), Grimm, Leverage, umm... probably a bunch of others but I can't think of them right now. But at the moment, most TV watching is on hold because my baseball team is in the playoffs, so I'm pretty much wall-to-wall St. Louis Cardinals at the moment.

I agree with you on Anson Mount. He reminds me a bit of Aragorn in Hell On Wheels.

He most definitely could have played Aragorn (if he can lose his Tennessee accent, which I bet he could). I like to imagine him as Halbarad. :)

Yay another Arrow fan!!

I really like that show now. After all, there aren't that many non spandex-wearing superheroes around heheh. Though hubby and I wondered how he managed to keep that hood up. Safety pins? :DD

Can't wait to see who his mentor on the island was.

I hope your team will do well in the playoffs!

Magical sticky tape he brought back from the island, maybe? *g*

I hope your team will do well in the playoffs!

They kind of are... I mean, they're 1 game away from getting to the World Series, but then again, they were one game away 2 games ago and have lost both, so I don't know what to think! Tonight is the do-or-die game; they win they get to the World Series, but if they lose, they get to go home and watch it on TV like the rest of us. *prepares nails for biting*

I watch Major Crimes, Sons of Anarchy, Arrow, Last Resort, The Walking Dead and Beauty and The Beast. Still watching SPN, but I'm like you, I'm cringing, waiting to see what the writers are going to do to the brother dynamic that's been the heart of the show for me. Person of Interest is pretty good, and so is Alphas. The only shows I watch on the major networks are Last Resort, Person of Interest, and Elementary. Most of my regular viewing is done on cable networks now.

I'm waiting for Leverage and Southland to return on TNT and Justified on FX.

I watch shows on Science channel and The Learning Channel sometimes too.

I've started watching The Walking Dead ( much to my kid's delight ), saw season 3 premier couple of nights ago, and all I can say is WOW. Lol, no wonder he wanted me to watch it so badly!!

Seeing Lauren Cohen there was a wonderful surprise. i liked Bela Talbot so it's good to have her as a regular in TWD.

I'm so glad you started watching the show. It's so much more than just a zombie show, and that's why I'm hooked on it. The characters are all so interesting and different. I really like Lauren too, and her character, Maggie, is awesome. She had a very powerful scene last night.

I've got several that I love and just one I think that I'll be dropping.

Monday - Revolution, Castle
Tuesday - Face Off, Hot Set
Wednesday - Arrow, Supernatural
Thursday - Person of Interest
Friday - nada
Saturday - nada
Sunday - Football

I'm dropping Elementary, it's too slow and I just can't get into it. I do try to catch Alpha's on replays and as soon as I get caught up on Mentalist and Criminal Minds they'll be added to my online viewing. :)

Carver said that no one is a bigger Dean and Cas fan than he is, so I don't think you have anything to worry about with their storyline.

He is? I didn't know that!

But then, Sera Gamble is supposed to be Sam's girl and look what she put Sam through :/

Date: 2012-10-22 03:32 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I don't know if Sera is really a Samgirl, she's written way more eps that focus on Dean than on Sam. And in S7, even though there was Sam's Lucifer hallucinations storyline, Dean was the one who had the most focus throughout the season. Sam's storyline was dropped in 7.17 and he was pretty much a background character for the rest of the season, while Dean got to kill Dick Roman and end up in Purgatory.

Dean has a great storyline this season, and I like that we're seeing how purgatory changed him. Sam went to hell for hundreds of years and he's no different than he was before, which is a terrible thing to do to his character. So, whatever they put Dean and Cas through, at least Carver is treating it like it matters, cause he cares about them.

Totally with you on the Sherlock, Game of Thrones and Dallas love :D In fact, Dallas is only just being shown right now in the UK and I'm so into watching it and I am loving it very hard!

SPN of course, though like you, I dread each download finishing, and then have to psych myself up to watch it. This last ep was painful.

Mad Men is really the only other show I am fanatical about and must download as soon as it airs, though sadly, it's going to be months again before it comes back on air.

Otherwise... don't tend to watch much current TV, apart from South Park, The Thick of It and Strictly Come Dancing (which is the British version of what you guys call Dancing with the Stars, I think??)

I've read some interesting things about Revenge. Would you say it was worth downloading? I hate procedural shows (like Dean!), but then I read a couple of people comparing it to the old Dallas - which of course is always a good thing.

From: [identity profile]
I watched the last 5 episodes of Dallas back to back, slept at 4am that day lol. Where are you at now? Who was ( were ) you favourite characters in the original show? Your favourite(s) now? I shipped Bobby/Pam very, very hard back then, and now I so badly want John Ross to win Elena. Heh, you would have thought that Christopher would be my favourite character since I love his parents but while I don't dislike him, it's John Ross who has my utmost, hmmm, should I say pity?

Hmmm, I wouldn't say Revenge is a procedural show, not exactly. The main character is more of an anti-heroine, bent on revenge, doing whatever she has to do to avenge her father, skirting the law more often than not. Though IMO, you have to really root for the heroine to like the show, which I do!

I'm watching far too much just now! The ones I try to watch as soon as possible are Bones, Downton Abbey, Grey's Anatomy and The Good Wife. Gossip Girl is also not far behind which surprises me because I've had a love/hate relationship with it from the start. I'm only really watching it for one storyline just now but since it's the last season and it looks like my storyline will have a happy ending (fingers crossed!), I'm quite hooked.

Also watching Merlin, NCIS, Hawaii Five-0 and Castle when I have time.

I'm sure I've missed something out, I just can't think what! Really love everything being back though, it makes up for the lack of shows during the summer.

You've seen the Bones episode with the Siberian tiger? I really love it when Booth likened Temperance to one. That just made me go awwwwwww ....

And I'm glad that Matthew and Mary have come to an understanding of sorts ( I'm only at episode 3 ). Those two are going to be the death of me, they're both so STUBBORN!!! Poor Edith though. Poor, poor girl.

Oh, I'm only watching Merlin at the moment which is yay!!! The last episode was so high up on the gayness and Merthur love. :DDDDD

I'm waiting for Sherlock - desperately! - and I'm not watching Elementary because it's rubbish and no one can convince me otherwise (especially since Hubby and I have started watching the old Granada Sherlock series and once more realising how great Sherlock is and how non-Holmesian Elementary is). :D

I'm also waiting for Downton Abbey - have seen spoilers already but don't mind.

And that's it really. I'm listening to Cabin Pressure at last - it's lovely but from other people's reactions I expected a bit more. Still, it's fun to listen to.

But that's really it. :)

I actually wanted to like Elementary ( taking it as an AU Sherlock and Holmes ) but unfortunately, it was a a no go. It was slow and I thought Joan Watson was bored out of her mind with her job babysitting Sherlock, and the two detectives ( the ones who are supposed to be Lestrade and Anderson (?) ) are quite the idiots. And you know, in a NY setting where you've been fed on CSI:NY and the likes, you know, where you can get the killer just from the DNAs etc, it's hard to swallow that the NYPD needs a consulting detective to help solve their cases.

I hope you'll like Downton Abbey as much as I do!

I've only listened to one episode of Cabin Pressure, the one on Kuala Lumpur. I had a hard time trying to understand what they were saying actually lol.

I don't think anyone can take Elementary as a Sherlock Holmes AU because there's nothing Holmesian about that show. Oh well. Yes, Joan did seem totally bored and yes, considering other New York crime series, this one is rather lame.

I can't wait for DA!!!

I haven't reached the Kuala Lumpur one yet - I think I'll listen to the next CD this evening. :DDDD
