    My Tivo is pretty empty these days, or it's filled with nothing I want to watch.

    Reccomend some shows to me- comedy, drama, specials, I don't care.

    Something that's in the guide now, that I can record.

    What's good on TV these days?

    Couple interesting shows I have come across:

    "Random 1" I believe A&E -- follows two guys that try and make a difference in someones life they meet on the street

    "Icons" on G4 --- short 1/2 hour shows on different Icons of the computer and video game industry

    I have started recording the "24" series since they re-aired them but have not gotten to them yet.

    Thats really all I can think of now... I have a hard time around this time once all my normal season shows come to an end.

    Here's something I noticed the other day - not sure whether it's a new feature but it was new to me.

    On the Now Playing list, bring up the Program screen for a program you like, and press Info on the remote. At the bottom of the Program Details window is a category titled "Similar Programs." You could review those lists if you're feeling lucky.

    I don't think I get G4.

    I like finding things out of the ordinary. My recommendation would be Seconds from Disaster on National Geographic Channel. One hour show that disects the secquence of events that leads to bad things happening.

    We recently started on that one too. Pretty cool show, especially when they talk about disasters you haven't heard of before.

    How I Met Your Mother is by far my new favorite this year. All my others have fallen by the wayside.

    I'm pretty aware of shows like Lost and the Daily Show.

    Dirtypacman and Keithjmc had the right idea. I am looking for something I might not have heard of.

    Cleavage? Now that's a reccomendation! :)

    Actually, I just set to record all three. Can't get seconds from disaster. Don't seemto have that channel.

    How can I tell if you've heard of them or not unless I say what I'm watching?

    My must-watch list:
    • Grey's Anatomy
    • NCIS
    • Gilmore Girls (catching up with the repeats on ABCFAM)

    Other stuff:
    I see a Firefly marathon is coming up on Sci-Fi Channel.

    We're enjoying E-Force (probably not as much interest to you since you are down that way and see Florida all the time ;) )

    Also watching:
    CSI (the original) -- can't wait for the new 'Lady Heather' episode
    The West Wing
    other stuff hardly worth mentioning (CSI:NY, Desperate Housewives, Bones)

    If every episosde has a thread here, or if it's on Network TV, or if it's in the Neilsen top 20, or there are articles in Entertainment Weekly, I've heard of it.

    If you have DirecTV, the current FreeView offerings are pretty good. U2 on the Vertigo tour and Collective Soul with The Atlanta Youth Symphony Orchestra.
