What show should I watch next?

I'm a sci fi, action, fantasy type guy, and I need a show to watch when working out. Here's what I've gone through so far:
Firefly & Serenity
Harry Potter
Lord of the Rings Extended Editions
Star Wars
Doctor Who
The Walking Dead.

I'm contemplating the following, but it would be rewatching:
Batman, the Animated Series
Buffy

I tried True Blood, but it has nudity, and this is showing on my iPad while I'm at the Y. So whatever I watch can't have nudity.

Suggestions?

Forgot to mention, I've also done Battlestar, as well as Arrested Development. Being Human it is!

Is action exclusive to the others, or does it have to be sci-if?

24 is a great show to work-out to and you'll have a lot to watch. It has a lot of action, but no sci-fi/fantasy.

What about:
The X-Files
The Dead Zone
Supernatural
Seaquest
Fringe

Please get the original BBC version as opposed to the SyFy drivel. The original is ten times better.

The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.: The Complete Series (2006)

http://www.amazon.com/The-Adventures...omplete+series

Quote:
A science fiction-Western and comedy-drama with echoes of The Wild Wild West and Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.: The Complete Series is uniquely entertaining. Anchored by the comically heroic style of likable B-movie actor Bruce Campbell, Adventures lasted one television season in 1993-94. But it left behind a full 27 episodes (including two two-part stories) full of classic TV Western production values and a running storyline that resembles The X-Files after awhile.

Campbell plays Brisco County Jr., a bounty hunter and son of a legendary U.S. marshal (R. Lee Ermey) gunned down by the villainous John Bly (Billy Drago) and his band of misfits. The younger Brisco is hired by a consortium of businessmen to protect their interests from the likes of Bly, and while he's dedicated to that cause, Brisco is also determined to avenge his father's murder. Helping him do a little of both is a fussy attorney, Socrates Poole (Christian Clemenson); a rival bounty hunter, Lord Bowler (Julius Carry); a wacky inventor, Professor Wickwire (John Astin); and a sultry saloon singer, Dixie (Kelly Rutherford). Rockets, mysterious orbs, and superhuman strength are some of the delightfully out-of-their-element phenomena that find themselves alongside more conventional cowpoke ingredients, including a horse so smart he can chew the ropes binding Brisco's hands. For the most part, the stories stand alone. But as the season progresses, a lot of things get weirder, albeit in a good way: the truth about Bly and his connection to a golden orb everyone wants, for example, are certainly unexpected. But the show is always dazzling, often satiric ("Oy!" Dixie exclaims when Brisco outlines the steps involved in stopping a runaway wagon they're trapped within), yet heartening in an old-fashioned way. Special features include Campbell's reading of a chapter about the series in his autobiography. --Tom Keogh

Product Description
The world's favorite western/sci-fi/comedy/action cult hit rides again! Here on 8 discs is the complete series about Brisco (Bruce Campbell), a tough-as-rawhide cowpoke, debonair ladies' man and Harvard-educated smarty-britches who roams from Frisco to Jalisco in pursuit of outlaws who killed his father...and in search of a mysterious orb possessing out-of-this world powers. Hot lead and cool anachronisms await Brisco as he and his sidekicks - including Comet, the intellectual equine who doesn't know he's a horse - fight for justice in the way, way, way-out West. Put your boots in your stirrups, your tongue in your cheek and join the fun. Let's play cowboys and aliens.

While reading the OP, what came to my mind was Farscape, which Amnesia has mentioned.

OK, I have a problem with Misfits. Nudity. I'm not a prude, but I'm watching this on the elliptical at the Y, and the episode with the old lady that turned young was pretty graphic. Can I expect more of the same?

It definitely can get raunchy - that's part of its charm.

The Finder
Eureka
Alphas
Life on Mars
Life
West Wing

Obviously these are not all Science Fiction, but some have twinges of it in there.
The Finder and Eureka are fun. Alphas is sort of Heroes-like, Life and West Wing are just two that I have seen recently and really enjoyed - not having seen them the first time around.

Season-to-Season, though, the British version is miles and miles and miles higher on the quality scale. I have no doubt by season 5 of the US version if it even makes it that far, based on SyFy's past performance, the same will hold true.

Id also say Xena although I havent watched it since it aired so Im not sure how its stood the test of time.

I gave up on Being Human. It got too dark and the misses didnt like it so we quit watching it.

Briscoe County would be a good one too as would Angel. Angel really picked up speed after the first season.
