    I really like Burn Notice.

    I'll always like Doctor Who.

    Robin Hood on BBC is pretty entertaining.

    The 4400 has been very good so far.

    Painkiller Jane isn't bad enough to drop the Season Pass. I didn't have high hopes so I'm not disappointed.

    This was my first season of TiVoing The Closer. It's an ok show but every episode is basically the same. There's a crime, they spend the next 30 minutes investigating, Brenda pulls the solution out of her butt, the perp collapses like a house of cards and confesses at the 54 minute mark. Come on. Almost nobody confesses in the real world.

    David Milch ripped HBO off with John From Cincinatti.

    The Closer isn't as much about the case as it is the people in the Department.

    Damages looks good, Rescue Me is great and we are trying to get into Saving Grace. No summer shows on the big Networks, all on cable.

    Unfortunately for me, I find the rest of the people in the department to be more interesting than Brenda.

    How about:
    America's Got Talent
    So You Think You can Dance
    Hell's Kitchen
    Big Brother 8

    Yeah I know alot of people are turned off from Reality shows..
    But during the summer when I should be outside or on vacation, these are great no brainer shows to tivo for those nights that its raining outside. And best thing is, if you miss an ep they spend the first 10 min of the shows just rehashing what happened the week before. I think its great summer TV

    Mine are:

    Mad Men
    Damages
    Big Brother
    Rescue Me
    My Boys
    So you think you can dance
    And David Milch is a genius with John From Cincinnati and I am glad HBO gave an artist some room to do something out there.

    Damages makes the cut for me for sure. After two episodes I am totally hooked and committed to these characters. I have no idea what is gonna happen and I love it!

    The only thing I'm watching is "Rescue Me". I got caught up on the last 15 episodes of "Lost" during June and July. Otherwise, I just have too much other stuff to do during the summer.

    I remember when Summer was a time to catch up on repeats of fall season shows. Not anymore, I think I watch Almost as as many shows during summer as I do during Fall.

    I was planning on catching up with some of the fall shows this summer but I have way too many summer shows to watch too. These are the ones I'm watching now:

    The 4400
    Kyle XY
    Fight Girls
    Big Brother
    Ice Road Truckers
    Hell's Kitchen
    Age of Love
    On the Lot
    Rescue Me
    Top Chef
    Last Comic Standing

    I normally don't watch this much reality TV, I don't know what happened this summer.

    Then there's my list of shows that I have saved up and haven't gotten to yet:

    Big Love Season 2 (never watched Season 1)
    Traveler
    Eureka
    My Boys
    Meadowlands
    John from Cincinatti
    Burn Notice
    Damages
    Mad Men
    The Company
    The Kill Point
    Painkiller Jane

    I dropped So You Think You Can Dance, I just couldn't get into it. I can't stand the singing shows and the game shows that are on in prime time. I'm kind of hoping that some of the shows I have here suck so I can get rid of them and free up some space and time.

    Please explain the genius of JFK. Unless the last episode, which I haven't seen yet, is the greatest episode ever in the history of tv, John From Cincinatti is batting below the Mendoza line.

    Rescue Me is the only thing new scripted show I'm watching this summer. We're watching a bunch of stuff on DVD though, some of which have become "summer shows" to us for the past few years.

    Buffy (just started S7)
    Angel (about to start S4)
    The Closer (S1)
    Deadwood (S3 (a bunch of episodes got deleted from my TiVo last summer))
    Nip/Tuck (S3)
    MI-5 (S4)
    The 4400 (S2)
    Band of Brothers

    I am not going to get into a JFC debate some people get it and some don't it is not for everyone. But seeing that the JFC threads are 2 or 3 pages every week there are lots of people who like it and seeing that most us don't get it we do know there is something great going on.
