Re: [urbanvita] Re: How about TV?
Since I don't have proper cable, my television is limited to networks and the odd channels.
I loved "Sherlock", but I haven't watched it in eons. I also really like the Americanized "Elementary" and they had the first contact with Moriarty a few weeks back... YAY! Best Villian Ever! (I'm guessing they'll hold off on his first appearance for a while.)
I also enjoy "The Good Wife", however it's getting "overpopulated" with too many supporting characters. I miss Mary Beth Peel.
My favorites are a toss up between "Modern Family" and "The Big Bang Theory". Lily kills me and Sheldon's girlfriend Amy delivery is the best. Oh, yeah, I like the silliness of "Miranda".
I buy the previous season's "South Park" every year and it still works... for the most part. "Bob's Burgers" is my current favorite "adult" cartoon.
I enjoy "Downton Abby" quite a bit, but anything that deals directly with Mary bores be to tears. (Except for Mr. Pamook's demise... "Mary's Deadly Vajayjay" is a running gag in the family... Poor Mathew, I hope her next victim fares better.)
I'm starting to like SNL again and the occassional "60 Minutes". I like "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" - Geoffrey Peterson is a riot.
We have three "retro" channels that I watch a lot. "Maude", "Sanford and Son", "WKRP", "MTM", and "Barney Miller" are great and I've rediscoved "Night Gallery" (a big hit or miss show) and I have found the joys of a show completely new to me: "Burns and Allen".
