I honestly think that what we watch on TV says a lot about our personalities (I know, some people don't watch TV). So, I want to know: what are your fave shows, past and present?

I know I am forgetting some, especially British shows (I have a Brit's sense of humor).

Okay, your turns!

I watch almost no television, although on bereaks at work I will go in and turn it on. Through that, I've seen parts of South Park (in edited reruns), The Outer Limits (the original B&W version on a local channel that carries Black and White Overnight), Highway Patrol, Sea Hunt (same channel), Mister Ed (before you say Oh puh-leeze, let me give you my assertion that Alan Young was one of the most talented comic actors anywhere and this is the only way to see him -- you need to look up his filography). Even The Patty Duke Show had some moments.

Usually, I just look at whatever channel is on in the break room. At home I watch very little other than local news, the first two segments of Jay Leno, and the remaining game shows. Jeopardy! is my favorite, along with Wheel of Fortune and The Price Is Right. I also like Millionaire in its new format, especially since Meredith Vieira looks like she truly enjoys hosting it and learning things along with the contestants. It's not at all wrong or unethical for a news personality to host a quiz show (it provided many of the great reporters with a healthy side income in TV's early days), and it gives a sense of authority to the program.

It takes a long time for a show to catch on for me. When I had a girlfriend, we would watch shows on DVD or reruns and enjoy them, but I didn't pick up the habit of watching them in new broadcasts and still haven't. Many of my favorites were picked up when CBS and ABC broadcast late-night reruns of various cop shows. McCloud and the original Hawaii Five-O were my favorites. (The new Five-O isn't half bad, but it's extremely difficult to follow and has made a conscious effort to be much darker than the original.)

And, as far as I know, a Snooki is a very short woman named Nicole Palazzi who is famous for being famous. And I don't even know if I spelled the last name right.

I have just been watching "The Wire" in its full seasons .... what a terrific show! It is an HBO program. There is only 5 seasons (which is sad). The characters and the story line are evolving and captivating. I highly recommend this for your addictive TV viewing!
